Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2013
Millions of Americans are at risk for several types of vein disease, including some conditions that can lead to serious complications. The Premier Vein Institute, a Tampa, FL based vein center, is publishing a new article designed to help the public understand the factors that influence their vein disease risk. The center hopes the information it provides will help readers take action and address the lifestyle choices that impact their risk of vein disease.
Dr. Obinna Nwobi, a leading vein doctor at the Premier Vein Institute, cites age as a top risk factor for vein disease. "Individuals are more likely to experience vein disease as they grow older. A person’s veins experience wear and tear as that person ages. This increases the likelihood of damage to tiny valves inside the veins, decreasing the efficiency of blood flow and increasing the risk of vascular issues."
The center’s newest article focuses on several different aspects of vein disease risk and provides actionable solutions to help readers manage these factors. This new article, and many other similarly helpful pieces, can be accessed at the Premier Vein Institute website.

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.
