July 3th, 2013. Flower Mound, TX: In honor of Men’s Health, Flower Mound Vein Center is promoting awareness of men’s health issues with the launch of a new educational health campaign. The Flower Mound, TX based vein center is publishing a new article focusing on the ramifications men may experience if they ignore the signs of varicose veins, and is also providing information on social media.
“Many men assume that varicose veins are merely a cosmetic problem,” explains Dr. Robert Handley, a leading vein doctor at Flower Mound Vein Center. “In actuality, untreated varicosities can lead to complications like bleeding, ulcers, and blood clots.” In the article Dr. Handley encourages men to consult with a vein doctor in order to make informed decisions about vein treatment.
Flower Mound Vein Center has established itself as a trustworthy source of education and information on various vein disease topics. The center hopes to encourage men to seek varicose vein treatment in a timely manner to avoid potentially dangerous complications.
More information about the health risk varicose veins can pose to men can be found on the vein center’s website, as well as on their Facebook and Twitter pages.

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.
