Women are at a higher risk of experiencing varicose veins due in part to fluctuations in the reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
CEO of Miami Vein Center in Miami, FL, Dr. Jose Almeida is promoting understanding of women's health issues. In an effort to educate women on important women's health issues, Dr. Jose Almeida is providing useful information that women can use to help them live better, healthier lives.
“Women are more likely to experience varicose veins than men,” says Dr. Jose Almeida, a top vein specialist at the Miami Vein Center. Women are at a higher risk of experiencing varicose veins due in part to fluctuations in the reproductive hormones estrogen and progesterone. These fluctuations are particularly pronounced during pregnancy and menopause.
The vein center is well equipped to treat women who are experiencing varicose veins, but they also hope that the information they provide can help women reduce their risk before vein disease becomes a problem. More information on this topic is being provided through the center's social media platforms including: Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and their Blog.
Varicose veins are one of many health issues that women should be aware of. Women are encouraged to take a closer look at all aspects of their health.

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.
