La Vista, NE (PRWEB) June 29, 2013
Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute in La Vista, NE has launched a new social media campaign to promote public awareness of newer and safer vein treatments, and to enable patients to make better informed decisions about their health care. The vein center specifically describes the treatment option sclerotherapy, which has fewer side effects and a lower risk of complications than older therapies, helping to promote improved outcomes for patients.
“With sclerotherapy treatment, a very fine needle is inserted into the diseased vein instilling a chemical solution. It does not harm circulation but irritates the inner lining of the capillaries,” explains Medical Director, Dr. Thomas Whittle. “The diseased vein then collapses and the body slowly replaces it with scar tissue, which gradually disappears. This procedure is very effective as we can cover larger areas of the leg in a single session.” The procedure is fast, minimally invasive, and patients can be up and about in about an hour.
Dr. Whittle is currently using Facebook and Twitter to provide advice on the vein treatments available. The public can also obtain a video from the Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute on the benefits of sclerotherapy.

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.
