June 2013: New York City: Patients worried about vein disease should focus on living a healthy lifestyle, says Manhattan-based New York Vein Treatment Center in a recent release on their website. The vein center recommends making lifestyle changes to promote efficient circulation and reduce the risk of varicosities.
“The risk of vein diseases can be lessened through regular exercise and weight loss,” says Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center. Regular exercise assists veins in transporting blood from the extremities back to the heart, a major cause of varicosities. Weight loss eases excess strain on the vascular system, further reducing the risk.
Dr. Khitin and the rest of the staff at New York Vein Treatment Center are well versed in the treatments available for varicose veins, but they recommend prevention as the best form of treatment. Visit the center’s Facebook page for more information on lifestyle changes that help prevent vein disease.
While age and heredity do play a role in vein disease risk, there are lifestyle changes that can make a difference. All patients are encouraged to take steps to improve their vein 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 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.
