June 17th, 2013. Flower Mound, TX: Flower Mound Vein Center is spending June educating the public about the causes and prevention of vein disease, in part through a new informative article published on their website. The Flower Mound, Texas vein clinic wants to make it more widely known that varicose veins, spider veins, and other forms of vein disease are a common problem experienced by men and women of most ages.
“Vein disease is linked to a breakdown in a vein’s ability to transport blood back to the heart. “Veins are equipped with tiny one-way valves,” explains Dr. Robert Handley
Vein disease is linked to a breakdown in a vein’s ability to transport blood back to the heart. “Veins are equipped with tiny one-way valves,” explains Dr. Robert Handley, a leading vein doctor at Flower Mound Vein Center. “If these valves are damaged blood is allowed to flow backwards into the vein, causing bulging vein problems.” Age, heredity, weight, and activity level all have a role in a person’s likelihood of experiencing vein disease. Flower Mound Vein Center is well equipped to treat vein disease, but they hope to encourage the public to take steps to make sure treatment is not necessary. They are providing information on vein disease prevention through the companies Facebook and Twitter. While vein disease is not always preventable, there are steps anyone can take to lower their risk. The first step in doing so is understanding why it happens and what can be done to prevent it.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Approximately 40% of women, and 25% of men, suffer from varicose veins. Varicose veins appear as twisting, rope-like cords of bulging veins under the skin, most often appearing on the legs. Some of the most common symptoms of varicose veins include leg heaviness, aching, swelling, fatigue, itching, tingling, or tenderness. Fortunately, patients with varicose veins have access to several safe and effective treatments. In many cases, varicose vein treatment is performed right in the office with minimally invasive therapies. Some of the best vein treatments available today are endovenous laser ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy, including ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. Patients with minor cases of varicose or spider veins may see results using conservative treatment, such as compression stockings or making healthy lifestyle changes like being more physically active.
