Carotid Artery Disease Screening




FreshSkin Medical Spa & Wellness Center, in Highland Park, is conducting carotid artery disease screenings for those at risk for atherosclerosis or that have a family history of stroke or heart disease. The next screening will be held in September.

      Risk factors for carotid artery disease include anyone age 45 or older, and anyone with a family history of either carotid artery or coronary artery disease, smoking (past or present), high blood pressure, diabetes or prediabetes, high cholesterol or obesity.

      Carotid artery disease screening is painless, non-invasive and doesn’t require the removal of any clothing. Patients will be placed on an examining table in a reclined position. A technician will place a transducer with gel on the neck and the probe delivers color flow ultrasound technology to create images of the carotid arteries while also measuring blood flow through them. These images will be reported and reviewed with the patient during a follow-up visit with the provider.

Location: 595 Elm Place, Ste. 208, Highland Park. For more information or to make an appointment, call 847-681-8821 or visit MyFreshSkin.com.
