July 2013: New York City: The New York Vein Treatment Center is launching a new public health campaign on the importance of vein diseases prevention. The New York City vein center says the risk of vein diseases can be lowered by making lifestyle changes that help to promote healthy circulation.
“Both regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce a person’s risk of vein diseases,” says Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at New York Vein Treatment Center. “Meticulously sized and fitted specialized compression stockings of therapeutic grade and graduated pressure play an important role in alleviation symptoms related to venous insufficiency.”
Decreased elasticity of venous walls due to hereditary abnormalities in composition of certain proteins represents a baseline for venous disorders. Additionally, there are numerous so-called “modifiable” risk factors contributing to their development. The vein center’s new campaign focuses each person’s individual role in detection and prevention of vein diseases.
Dr. Khitin and the staff at New York Vein Treatment Center hope their newest campaign will encourage the public to take steps to fight the onset of vein diseases. The campaign will run throughout July on the center’s social media pages. Anyone interested in learning more should visit the center’s Facebook and Twitter outlets.

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 safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent, most importantly permanent results with no side-effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
