Mandeville, LA. La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center releases a new article in which they discuss deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and the alarming rate at which this disease is being diagnosed in younger women. According to the vein clinic in New Orleans, for many years DVT has been considered a disease that primarily affects older women, but in recent years it is being found frequently in women still in their 20s and 30s. This is alarming because DVT is serious – hundreds of thousands of Americans die from complications arising from it every year.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of one of the best New Orleans vein treatment centers, “reasons for the alarming increase in DVT among younger women include inactivity, increased use of birth control pills or hormone therapy after pregnancy, and the alarming increase of obesity and type 2 diabetes. The bottom line, however, is that if you are a woman who cares about your vein health – whatever your age – you owe it to yourself to see a New Orleans vein specialist to find out whether you have DVT or are at increased risk of developing it. Doing so could well save your life.”

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
The vein disease conditions varicose veins and spider veins affect many women and men in the U.S. The smaller, red-to-purple colored spider veins are located close to the surface of the skin and tend to present mostly cosmetic problems. Varicose veins, however, tend to be bigger in size and appear as more swollen, tangled and blue in color. Varicose veins can be painful, and may limit a patient’s activities.
In the past, patients with varicose veins or spider veins faced invasive, often painful treatment options. But today, advances in technology give patients a number of minimally-invasive and virtually painless options for effective vein treatment. Some of the best treatments to eliminate problem veins with few side-effects or downtime include sclerotherapy, endovenous laser therapy, endovenous radiofrequency ablation, microphlebetomy, and other laser treatments.
