Lifestyle factors such as weight, level of exercise, and smoking all have a role to play in vascular health.
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Novant Health Vein Specialists is launching a new public health campaign designed to encourage adults to take steps to improve their vascular health. Millions of adult Americans are at risk for serious long-term vascular health issues, says the Winston-Salem, NC based vein center. The center hopes the information it provides in its new campaign will empower the public to take steps that will lead to an improvement in vascular health.
According to Dr. Ray Workman, a leading vein doctor at Novant Health Vein Specialists, lifestyle factors such as weight, level of exercise, and smoking all have a role to play in vascular health. "We encourage our patients to take steps towards a healthier lifestyle through weight management, a regular exercise routine, and smoking cessation. All of these changes can have a positive effect on vascular health and lower an individual’s risk of vein disease."
The center will be providing actionable information throughout the month of September through its social media outlets. Individuals can learn more by visiting 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 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.
