If left untreated, vein disease can progress to skin ulcerations and serious blood clots. Addressing the problematic vein early on can prevent these complications.
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) August 17, 2013
Winston-Salem, NC. Novant Health Vein Specialists is launching a new social media campaign designed to educate the public about when to seek vein treatment. According to the Winston-Salem, NC based vein center, mild forms of vein disease can have serious complications if left untreated. The center hopes its newest campaign will encourage the public to seek timely treatment for vein disease, reducing the number of people suffering from advanced complications.
Dr. Ray Workman, a leading vein doctor at Novant Health Vein Specialists, recommends consulting with a vascular specialist if you begin to notice signs of vein disease, including leg swelling and varicose veins. “If left untreated, vein disease can progress to skin ulcerations and serious blood clots. Addressing the problematic vein early on can prevent these complications.”
Novant Health Vein Specialists is relying on social media to help distribute information on this important topic. Interested readers can visit the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages to learn more. This campaign will run throughout the month of August.

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.
