Many people think varicose veins and spider veins are simply a cosmetic problem, or an inevitable and harmless consequence of aging, however, neither is true.
Flower Mound, TX (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
December 3, 2013. Flower Mound, TX. Flower Mound Vein Center announces the publication of a new article on their website on common misconceptions about vein disease treatment. According to the Flower Mound, TX based center, untreated varicose veins can have some pretty serious consequences, such as deep vein thrombosis, or blood clots. The center hopes this article will help the public understand both the importance of prompt vein treatment, and more about the new, exciting treatments that are available.
Dr. Robert Handley, director of Flower Mound Vein Center, says, “Many people still think of vein stripping, which is a lengthy, uncomfortable procedure, when they think of vein disease treatment. Today, modern technologies have led to the use of minimally invasive treatments, meaning treatments that are administered through tiny incisions in the skin.” As a leading Flower Mound vein specialist, he provides sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, and endovenous laser treatment, among other services.
The center hopes that by correcting popular misconceptions about vein disease treatment in Texas, more patients will find prompt vein treatment and better vascular health.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins can be unsightly. Above and beyond their cosmetic appearance, however, they can lead to leg cramps, pain and swelling. Largely the result of aging, veins can lose their elasticity and become enlarged and prominent leading to the development of varicose veins.
There is a solution. Several minimally invasive treatments are available to eliminate varicose veins. They include highly specialized techniques such as sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment and microphlebectomy. All of these procedures are performed by highly skilled vein doctors on an outpatient basis without the need for general anesthesia. Patients are often back to work the next day.
