It’s a new year, and you’ve decided that this year you’re finally going to do something to get rid of your varicose veins and stop allowing them to rob you of the joy of life.
Flower Mound Vein Specialist: Get Rid of Varicose Veins
You’re tired of looking in the mirror, sighing, and then reaching for yet another pair of long pants to hide your legs. You’re tired of swollen legs and ankles and sitting around moaning “My legs hurt.” You want your attractive legs back, and the energy to go out dancing, the way you used to do before vein disease robbed you of your life. First, congratulations. We realize that making this decision is a big step. We don’t know what the “last straw” was that made you decide to finally seek vein disease treatment in Texas, but we’re glad you did. And in this article we’re going to try to help by suggesting what your next three steps should be to finally set you free from your varicose veins.
Step One: Get a screening and get your facts straight
If you haven’t had a full venous health screening and discussed the results of it with a Flower Mound vascular doctor, that should be your first step. These screenings are non-invasive, painless, and only take about an hour, but they allow your doctor to determine exactly how serious your varicose veins are. This is a logical first step, because mild cases can often be treated conservatively with exercise, lifestyle recommendations, and the wearing of compression stockings to improve circulation. More serious cases can pose greater danger to your overall health, and thus might require more aggressive treatments, such as sclerotherapy or endovenous laser therapy.
Step Two: Have your spider and varicose vein doctor in Flower Mound explain your treatment options to you
Varicose veins can be treated using many different methods. Each is best suited to a particular severity of vein disease and a patient’s individual case. For example, if your main concern is to relieve the discomfort of varicose veins, there are a number of conservative treatments that can achieve this. If, however, you want your varicose veins to go away forever, that may require other forms of treatment. Your Flower Mound vein specialist will discuss all of these treatment options with you and help you to select the ones that best suit your schedule, your lifestyle, your budget or medical insurance, and your personal goals – what you want to accomplish, how quickly, and how permanently.
Step Three: Follow through and allow one of the best vein doctors in Texas to help you
Once you and your doctor have determined the best course of treatment, schedule the necessary appointments and then just relax and enjoy the process. The techniques we use at Flower Mound Vein Center are minimally-invasive and painless, and even better they tend to take only about an hour. You walk in with varicose veins, and you walk out without them – no muss, no fuss, no hospitalization, and no lengthy recovery times. And you’ll notice the benefits immediately, both cosmetically and in terms of how much more energy and vitality you feel, now that vein disease is not impairing your circulation. The most important step is still the first one, however. Pick up your phone and call 972-410-5757 to arrange for a venous health screening and an initial consultation with Dr. Robert A. Handley. He’ll take it from there, and in a remarkably short time your varicose veins will be history and you’ll be out there on the dance floor the way you want to be.
