New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2013
New York Cardiovascular Associates, a leading health center for cardiac, vascular, and pulmonary care in New York City, strives to educate patients about vein conditions, and steps they can take to reduce their risk. When it comes to varicose veins, the twisted, bulging, or discolored veins that often appear on the legs, unfortunately one of the main risk factors is aging, say vein experts at the New York center.
As people age, veins age as well. Normal wear and tear with aging can weaken vein walls and reduce their elasticity, increasing the likelihood of developing varicose veins.
Just because varicose veins develop with normal aging, however, doesn’t mean that treatments aren’t available, says New York Cardiovascular Associates. The New York vein experts are focusing their Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages on discussing safe and effective vein treatment options for varicose veins in older adults throughout the month of July.
Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Vein disease affects tens of millions of people in the U.S. alone. One of the most common vein disorders is varicose veins. Varicose veins and spider veins can significantly impact a patient’s health and quality of life. New York Cardiovascular Associates provides a number of effective treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins.
Vein treatment at New York Cardiovascular Associates may include lifestyle changes, or a procedure to eliminate or reduce the appearance of abnormal veins. These treatment options include sclerotherapy, ambulatory phlebectomy, endovenous laser ablation, and radiofrequency ablation. Varicose vein removal procedures are minimally invasive, and are performed on an outpatient basis to ensure faster recovery times with optimal results.
