Flower Mound, Texas (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
The Flower Mound Vein Center is launching a new social media campaign to educate the public on minimally invasive spider vein treatments. The Flower Mound, TX vein specialists say that the newest treatments are minimally invasive, meaning they can be performed conveniently in the vein center’s office, with no need to visit a hospital or experience lengthy recovery times.
Dr. Robert Handley, a leading Flower Mound vascular doctor, says, “A popular choice for spider veins is called sclerotherapy, in which a special solution is injected directly into the veins causing them to permanently seal shut. The body naturally reroutes the blood through other veins in the body, and patients experience a significant improvement in both their circulation and in the appearance of their legs.” Dr. Handley also notes that the sclerotherapy procedure can be performed in about an hour.
The Flower Mound Vein Center recommends an initial visit for a venous health evaluation before pursing spider vein treatment in Texas. The center hopes that by providing this information, patients will be motivated to ask their vein specialist about their spider vein treatment options and seek prompt attention for their spider veins. For more information, interested readers can visit the center’s social media channels, including Facebook and Twitter.
