    3 Types of Vein Therapies to Rid Your Legs of Varicose Veins

    Last updated 2 years ago

    If you have unsightly or uncomfortable spider veins in your legs, then consult your physician about possible treatment options. These veins are superficial, which means that they are not used to transfer blood to the heart. For information on the most popular vein treatments, review the information below.

    1.      Endovenous Laser Ablation

    During an endovenous laser ablation, a laser beam-producing fiber is inserted into the bulging or discolored varicose vein. The laser is used to heat the vein’s lining, causing it to collapse and disappear. Your physician will use a thin needle when injecting the laser in order to reduce pain and eliminate the chance of scarring or bruising. Endovenous laser ablation is generally used to treat thick spider veins that are bulging and causing discomfort.

    2.      Sclerotherapy

    Sclerotherapy is a less-invasive alternative that is often used to treat smaller varicose veins. During a sclerotherapy session, a physician uses a tiny needle to inject the spider vein with a mild solution. This solution irritates the walls of the veins, causing them to swell until they stick to each other. Once they’re sealed, blood can no longer pass through and the vein will eventually disappear. Be sure to talk with your physician about any medical sensitivities you may have.  

    3.      Laser Vein Removal

    During laser vein removal, a laser is used to heat up the blood inside the varicose vein, causing it to collapse. The laser’s wavelength is targeted to the pigment in the blood, so it won’t damage the skin or other nearby tissues. In the weeks following this type of vein treatment, the body will absorb the vein.

    At The G Spa International, we offer all three of these vein removal treatments. To find out if you’re a candidate for vein removal therapy, call us at (240) 396-4504 or visit our website.

    Spa Etiquette 101: What You Need to Know Before You Go

    Last updated 2 years ago

    If you’ve never been to a spa, then you may be long overdue for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. However, you may also be unfamiliar with how to prepare for your trip to the spa. The following explains what you need to know before your day at the skin care spa:

    • Wear Minimal Makeup

    On the day of your spa treatment, try not to wear any makeup. This is especially important if you are undergoing a facial injection treatment, facial massage, or laser skin resurfacing. You may also want to avoid shaving or applying lotion on the day of your treatment in order to avoid irritation.

    • Discuss Any Allergies or Sensitivities

    As soon as you arrive for your spa session, talk to your physician or massage therapist about any allergies or sensitivities you may have to lotions, perfumes, solvents, or other solutions. An allergic reaction to a facial injection, vein solution, or chemical solvent could interfere with the results of your treatment.

    • Drink Water

    Remember to drink plenty of water before and after your spa treatment session, and if you can, then sip water throughout your treatment, especially if you’re getting a massage. Most spa treatments are designed to stimulate blood flow and reduce blood pressure, so drinking water will help facilitate these processes. 

    • Turn Your Cell Phone Off

    No one wants to hear a cheesy cell phone ring or pop song ringtone when they’re trying to relax during their salon or spa treatment. Therefore, be sure to turn your cell phone off as soon as you arrive for your spa session. If you can’t afford to have it shut off, then put it on silent mode. 

    • Speak Softly

    While you’re at the spa, talk softly so as not to interrupt anyone’s spa experience. If you schedule a girls’ day out, then ask to be grouped in a private room or separate section of the spa so that you can socialize with your friends.

    Now that you’re ready for the spa, call The G Spa International at (240) 396-4504 and schedule your appointment. We offer skin injection treatments, massage therapy, vein removal, and other cosmetic services.

    Last updated 2 years ago

    In this clip, you’ll meet a board-certified cosmetic physician who explains in great detail why women get cellulite while men don’t. He uses small saucers, pencils, charts, and other materials to demonstrate how fat develops, where it grows, and why it appears the way it does underneath the skin. Finally, he explains how these processes differ in men, giving them the appearance of smooth skin.

    If you need help getting rid of your cellulite, then call The G Spa International at (240) 396-4504 and schedule your appointment today. We offer a variety of cellulite removal therapies, including Zerona laser fat removal and mesotherapy.

    4 Common Beauty Problems That are Easily Fixed by Cosmetic Lasers

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Your physical appearance isn’t your most important feature, but it is the first thing that people notice. Moreover, if you’re like most people, then your self-esteem is tied closely in to how you look. Consider the following cosmetic conditions that can easily be treated using laser therapy:

    1.      Skin Discoloration

    If you spent too much time in the sun in prior years, then you may have sun spots that are causing your skin to appear discolored. Fortunately, now there are laser skin resurfacing treatments available that will safely remove the top layer of your skin, causing the younger skin cells beneath to surface. This will give you younger, tighter, and fresher-looking skin.

    2.      Spider Veins

    If you are unsatisfied with the thin blue and red veins that have appeared around your ankles, knees, and thighs, then ask your skin care specialist about laser vein removal. It’s the least-invasive treatment option, as no needles or skin injections are necessary. The laser causes the vein to collapse, and after a few weeks, your body will naturally absorb the vein tissue.

    3.      Lumpy Skin  

    Are cellulite and clumps of fat causing your skin to appear lumpy? If so, then ask about the Zerona laser fat removal treatment. Cellulite appears as a result of fatty adipose tissue bulging through the connective collagen beneath your skin. The Zerona treatment targets the adipose by heating it and causing it to dissolve, leaving you with smoother-looking skin.

    4.      Unwanted Hair

    If you’re tired of shaving or have an abnormal amount of hair on certain areas of your body, then consider undergoing laser hair removal. During this procedure, the laser targets and damages the hair follicles, preventing future growth. Due to the way that hair grows, you may need multiple treatments to fully eliminate stubble.

    Visit The G Spa International to receive the treatment and support you need to look your best. We provide skin-firming injectable treatments, body-contouring laser procedures, relaxing massage therapies, and more. Call us today at (240) 396-4504 to get the cosmetic lift you need.

    3 Health Benefits of Massage that You Never Knew About

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Most people love the way they feel both during a professional massage and for days afterward, but many don’t realize just how good that massage is for the entire body. All types of massage have healing properties that can almost erase the need for some medications. If you’re interested in finding out three surprising health benefits to massage, then check out the information below. 

    1.      Easing Pain and Stress

    Your brain releases certain chemicals into your body when your muscles are massaged. These substances block stress signals and pain receptors in your body. Specifically, massage allows for a release of endorphins, which create a euphoric and rejuvenated feeling throughout the body. 

    2.      Boosting Immune Function

    Stress harms the body in many ways: It causes your oil glands to overproduce, leads to achy joints, and prevents you from getting a restful night of sleep. Stress also suppresses your immune cells, causing you to feel ill more often. Finally, the tension your body feels from stress can cause nerve fibers to overact, which makes your body try to heal an unnecessary problem. This keeps your immune function busy and unable to maintain itself. Massage can reduce your stress and help keep it at bay.

    3.      Reducing Hypertension

    After a relaxing massage, you often feel lighter and more energetic. This is a result of increased blood flow to the brain, vital organs, and muscle tissues. During a relaxing massage, your vascular system experiences a release in pressure, which reduces hypertension and optimizes circulation of nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood.  

    If you’re long overdue for a massage, then come to The G Spa International. We offer a large variety of healing massage techniques that will invigorate your body, relax your mind, and improve your health. We also offer many other beauty and skin care services—learn more by visiting our website or by calling (240) 396-4504.
