                  LOOKING GOOD - June 20, 2008   
              "Tips To Help You Look & Feel Your Best"   

Good Morning,   

What's The Deal For This Week?

Some time ago, maybe a year, we had these really cool Glow in
the Dark stair treads.

They were really popular and for the most part they were
great. The only negative we heard about was how big they were.
And it made sense... They took up almost the whole step.

So we talked with a few of our close manufacturers to see
if they could come up with something better. It took some
time, but I think you're going to like this style better.

It gives you more flexibility to do so many different things.
Heck, you can even use them for other things besides steps.

Place one or two in the crook of the step and it will light the
way in the dark. There's actually a lot of details to these,
read about it more below.

brick, and cement steps. Made of durable Polystyrene it will hold
up to almost any element. Each stair guide is: 8" x 1" x 1"

Six Disc Comedy Collection... Boxed Set DVD Collection


There are seven major forms of treatment for varicose veins 
and spider veins...

Support Stockings...

The most conservative approach is simply to wear properly-fitting 
support hose, especially when the veins cause painful or uncomfortable 
symptoms. These stockings can generally be purchased at any surgical 
supply store and at some pharmacies. They come in below-the-knee, 
above-the-knee, and pantyhose styles...

Lifestyle changes...

Good skin hygiene, weight loss (if needed), and walking can help 
treat varicose veins and spider veins...


This procedure, which has been available since the 1930s, is another 
treatment option. This procedure uses a highly concentrated saline 
(salt) solution or a specially made detergent that is injected 
directly into the vein, causing the vein to disappear gradually 
over 3 to 6 weeks. The procedure is simple, relatively inexpensive, 
and can be performed in an outpatient setting...

Endovenous Laser Treatment is a procedure in which a small laser 
fiber is inserted into the vein. Pulses of laser light are delivered 
inside the vein, which causes the vein to collapse. The procedure 
is done as an outpatient under local anesthesia...


Simply Clever... Just Push & Turn...

Normal Price: $14.99
Get 2 Sets (40 hooks total) for $9.98

Say goodbye to your hammer and nails. Now you can hang pictures,
mirrors, shelves or more FAST, EASY, and more SECURELY than

With these clever Super Hooks, all you do is just position,
twist, turn and voila!! No drills, no hammers, no mess.

You get a set of 20.

Works on drywall, plaster or paneling. Perfect for home,
office, or school. Holds up to 100 lbs.

SUPER HOOKS - Simply Clever... Just Push & Turn


Radiofrequency Occlusion...

A small catheter is inserted into the vein. The catheter delivers 
radiofrequency energy to the vein wall, causing it to heat, collapse, 
and seal shut. The procedure is generally done in an outpatient or 
in-office setting and may be done under local anesthesia...


Surgical techniques to treat varicose veins include ligation 
(tying off of a vein) and stripping (removal of a long segment of 
vein). Another procedure, ambulatory phlebectomy, allows for the 
removal of large surface veins through very small incisions that 
do not need stitches. Surgery may be performed using local, spinal, 
or general anesthesia. Most patients return home the same day as 
the procedure. Surgery is generally used to treat large varicose 

Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light...

Surface laser or intense pulsed light treatments, such as Vasculight 
and PhotoDerm, are other options. These devices use heat energy to 
selectively damage or destroy abnormal veins. An advantage of these 
treatments is that no needles or sclerosing solutions are required, 
however there may be some minor discomfort. Side effects do occur, 
including discoloration or staining and blister formation...

Not all patients need treatment for their varicose veins or spider 
veins. Many people have no pain or other symptoms. For these 
individuals, no treatment is necessary, unless they want the 
veins removed for cosmetic reasons...

Many insurance companies do cover the cost of treating varicose 
veins, but generally not spider veins. The best approach is to 
check with your insurance company before considering treatment 

Have a great weekend everyone!
