Venous Disease affects over 30 million people in the United States, and roughly only 6.5% of people of those affected seek treatment. Vein disease can affect all people, regardless of age, race, or gender. Usually, females and the elderly are more affected as the disease progresses.
How Did You Get Vein Disease?
There is a genetic risk factor associated with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). Older female patients are more likely to suffer from CVI. There are also lifestyle risk factors associated with venous disease such as prolonged periods of sitting or standing, Obesity or excessive weight, multiple pregnancies, and smoking.

Venous Doppler Evaluation
One size does not fit all. Here at Ageless Rejuvenation Center, we offer a customized approach to vein treatment. To more effectively bring our clients tailored treatment plans, we offer Venous Doppler Evaluation as a diagnostic tool. A non-invasive procedure, the Venous Doppler Ultrasound serves as an initial step to the treatment process for clients desiring to address painful or unsightly veins.
The Venous Doppler Ultrasound is a procedure that allows us to utilize the power of ultrasound to examine the veins of our patients. While standard ultrasounds can only provide images of blood vessels, a Venous Doppler Ultrasound allows us to see how your blood flows through veins and arteries.
How Does it Work?
The technology works similarly to sonar technology and is an “inside look” at your legs’ circulatory system. Images are captured using sound waves, and our physicians use the produced images of tissue to evaluate blood flow through the blood vessels in your legs.
The Doppler technology used in Venous Doppler Ultrasound is useful when evaluating veins because it measures both the speed and the direction of blood cells as they travel. Cell movement creates pitch changes in reflected sound waves, and these changes appear as color pictures or graphs.
After reviewing blood flow, we can locate and identify damaged or dysfunctional valves in your leg veins and pinpoint the cause of low blood circulation. The result is a customized and effective vein treatment that’s right for you.

The Ultrasound Procedure
The Venous Doppler Ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that is entirely painless. A typical test takes up to half an hour, and most of our clients find the process to be relaxing and pleasant. Before treatment, you’ll need to remove all clothing, jewelry, and other accessories from your legs or any other area that will require testing.
The Venous Doppler Ultrasound procedure begins with our patient on an exam table. One of our technologists will hold a transducer, which is a hand-held device that looks like a microphone and attaches to a scanner with a cord. A clear gel is then applied to your skin, and the transducer is smoothed across the body as it sends out high-frequency sound waves into the targeted area.
As sound waves bounce off your blood vessels, the transducer records minimal alterations in the pitch and direction. Our physicians can see the resulting real-time ultrasound image on the video screen, which is a composite of the loudness, pitch, and time required for an ultrasound signal to travel from the body to the transducer. The visual data is collected to begin developing the course of an effective vein treatment plan for you.
