September 12th, 2013. Flower Mound, TX. The Flower Mound Vein Center is launching a new health campaign designed to educate the public about the important role of ultrasound in vein treatment. According to the Flower Mound, TX based vein center, ultrasound is an invaluable tool for diagnosing forms of vein disease that may not have many obvious symptoms, including potentially serious conditions such as deep vein thrombosis. The center hopes better education on the importance of ultrasounds will lead to better outcomes for patients.
Dr. Robert Handley, a leading vein doctor at the Flower Mound Vein Center, explains that ultrasounds give doctors a valuable glimpse at the conditions beneath a patient’s skin. “Ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves to form a picture of a patient’s organs or blood vessels. This allows doctors to visually examine areas that are normally difficult to view, allowing for more accurate diagnosis and treatment.”
The vein center plans to provide the public with information on ultrasound through a social media campaign. Interested readers can visit the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages to learn more. This campaign will run throughout the month of September.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
