Importance should be given to the evaluation of venous insufficiency.
GREENBELT, Md. (PRWEB) October 15, 2015
Center for Vein Restoration’s LegsWork Community Outreach Program presents “High Tea” – an event that will merge the elegance of afternoon tea with a hearty discussion on improving leg vein health. The tea will take place between noon – 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015 at The Women’s Club of Bethesda, located at 5500 Sonoma Rd., Bethesda, Md. 20817. Tickets are brewing on EventBrite.com with a price of $15 for club members and $18 for non-club members.
Special guest speaker Dr. Priya Thirumlai, a practicing physician with Center for Vein Restoration, will host this unique event on “How to Keep your Leg Veins Healthy.”
“As women, there is so much emphasis on women's health with respect to breast health via mammograms and/or cervical health with screening tests like pap smears,” Dr. Thirumlai states. “Those are very important, but similar importance should be given to the use of bilateral lower extremity duplex ultrasound (leg ultrasounds) for the evaluation of venous insufficiency. Doing so early, prior to the unsightly appearance of spider or varicose veins, is the optimal way to improve leg health and circulation. This will help you stay active with less lower leg discomfort for the rest of your life!”
This health discussion over tea will feature a Lord & Taylor-sponsored giveaway providing attendees the opportunity to win a $250 skincare/fragrance gift basket, one of six $50.00 gift cards, and a $200 spa tea treatment for two that includes: facial cleansing, facial exfoliation, facial mask, spa hand massage, and light refreshments.

ABOUT VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY
Venous insufficiency, the cause of varicose veins and spider veins, indiscriminately affects more than 30 million Americans. Several factors like age, pregnancy, lack of motion, weight, genetics, and a history of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can increase a person’s risk of developing this all-too-common disorder. Treatment options range from conservative changes to lifestyle, like exercising more and avoiding standing or sitting for prolonged periods of time or wearing compression stockings for enhancing circulation, to minimally-invasive, outpatient procedures that close trouble veins to redirect blood flow.
