Thanks to Baby Bump Studios, you don't have to become a teen pop idol to star in a music video in your youth; in fact, you don't even have to be born yet. That's because the studio's ultrasound packages involve not only determining the baby's gender and listening to his or her heartbeat, but also creating such commemorations of the event as framed photos and DVD recordings set to music. It's all made possible by the center's real-time 3-D ultrasound equipment, which displays a realistic image of the baby moving about and mouthing the word “claustrophobia.” The studio's photographers can also capture black-and-white or color portraits of expectant mothers, newborns, or whole families.

Dr. Moses Nasser, One Source Healing’s board-certified family physician, sends spider veins skittering with safe quick-injection sclerotherapy treatments. A sotradecol solution courses through a fine needle to irritate the lining of offending spider veins, which in the following weeks wilt into scar tissue and dissolve like a temporary tattoo. After the procedure, which may result in mild discomfort, patients can walk as usual but should avoid aerobic activity such as running, jumping, or cartwheel racing. Dr. Nasser may recommend multiple treatments or compression garments for larger veins on legs.
