Tobacco abuse, increased weight and decreased mobility are the risk factors for development of vascular diseases.
Manhattan, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
The New York Vein Treatment Center is announcing their new campaign designed to educate the public about the importance of vascular health. According to the Manhattan-based vein center, millions of Americans are at risk for development of disorders affecting the vascular system. The center is launching their new campaign to assist the public in making healthy choices that will lead to better vascular (and therefore overall) health.
According to Dr. Lev Khitin, the leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center, lifestyle factors play significant role in individual’s vascular health. “Tobacco abuse, increased weight and decreased mobility are the risk factors for development of vascular diseases. Quitting cigarettes, engaging in weight management program and exercising regularly decrease significantly the risk of vascular disorders.”
The center will be providing practical tips for better understanding and improvement of their vascular health throughout the month of October. This new campaign will run primarily through social media, including the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

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 safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent, most importantly permanent results with no side-effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
