Do you have varicose veins? If so, have you come to dread looking at your legs in the mirror? Does the sight of them remind you of the fashionable dresses, skirts, and bathing suits you can’t really wear any more? Do your varicose veins make your legs feel tired much of the time, leaving you feeling bad about your swollen legs and ankles and lamenting, “My legs hurt?”
If so, there is a way to think about your varicose veins that might help. Think of them the way you do the schoolyard bully who tormented you back when you were in school. Remember how you used to dread seeing him or her, how the very sight of the bully would fill you with dread? Isn’t that how you feel when, day after day, you catch sight of your varicose veins in the mirror? OK, now think about that wonderful day when you finally stood up to the bullies and made them go away.
How your vascular doctor in Flower Mound can help you deal with the vein disease bully
You don’t have to “live with” the bullying of vein disease. Yes, it’s a common condition, affecting over half of Americans over the age of 50. Yes, it can be depressing to look in the mirror and see your varicose veins. But you don’t have to live with varicose veins. Thanks to remarkable advances in medical technology in the last few decades, they can be quickly and easily treated and eliminated by the best vein doctor in Texas, right here in Flower Mound.
Dr. Robert A. Handley and his associates at the Flower Mound Vein Center are specialists in dealing with the schoolyard bully that is vein disease. “Standing up for yourself” and getting back your self-confidence and self-esteem is as easy as making a phone call to our offices at 972-410-5757 asking for an appointment for a venous health screening and consultation. This screening takes only about an hour, is painless and non-invasive, and utilizes state-of-the-art technologies like Doppler ultrasound to “see through” the skin and pinpoint the circulatory problems that have caused your varicose veins.
Once these problem areas have been located, they can be treated in the comfort of our Flower Mound offices, with no need for hospitalization or long recovery times. Modern vein treatment procedures such as sclerotherapy can be performed in about an hour, and are so minimally-invasive as to require no general anesthesia. A tiny instrument smaller than the hypodermic needle used to give you a flu shot is painlessly introduced into the diseased vein and then guided using ultrasound to the perfect position to seal the vein and close it with a sealant. Afterwards your body does the rest of the work, re-routing your blood flow to surrounding veins, and absorbing the now-closed vein back into the surrounding tissues. In most cases, all traces of the varicose veins disappear, and they do not “grow back.”
So don’t let your varicose veins bully you into losing your self-confidence and your appreciation for life. Don’t let them put you at risk of more serious diseases like deep vein thrombosis, which can be dangerous and even life threatening. Vein disease is serious, and needs to be treated so that it doesn’t get worse, but modern treatment is fast, painless, and available in your local community. Give us a call today, and allow us to help you fight the vein disease bully and help you find your way back to a healthier and happier life.
