Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
In honor of women everywhere, Winston-Salem based vein center Novant Health Vein Specialists is providing information that women can use to improve their health, especially their venous health.
Pregnant women should pay close attention to their health, as their well-being affects the health of their babies. “The changes a woman’s body undergoes while pregnant can increase her risk of several health problems, including varicose veins,” says Dr. Ray Workman, a leading vein doctor at Novant Health Vein Specialists. These veins may become less severe a few months after delivery.
Any woman can take advantage of the information that Novant Health Vein Specialists is providing. Tips and ideas about many aspects of women’s health will be available on the varicose vein center’s Facebook, Twitter pages, Google+ and blog.
Whether a woman is pregnant or not, having an understanding of the health issues she may face will help her live a better life. All women are encouraged to take a stronger role to learn more about female health issues.

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.
