New York City. New York Cardiovascular Associates is launching a campaign designed to address some of the most common myths associated with vein disease.

The center hopes its newest campaign will address these myths and encourage the public to take steps towards vein disease prevention and treatment.

“One of the most prevailing myths about vein disease is that treatment is an arduous process,” explains a New York Cardiovascular Associates representative. “While older treatment methods, such as vein stripping, were uncomfortable, today’s methods are minimally invasive and virtually pain-free. Many patients can address their issues in as little as an hour and return to work the next day.”

The center plans to utilize social media to help in debunking this and many other common vein disease myths. The center’s Facebook and Twitter pages will host information on this topic throughout the month of September.

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.
