Siragusa Vein & Laser Center’s Nashville Vascular Doctor Puts Out a New Article On the Effect of Aging On Veins
January 9, 2016. Nashville, TN. The experts at Siragusa Vein and Laser Center have published a new article that explains the effect aging can have on veins and what makes it one of the top risk factors for developing vein disease. According to the article, vein disease affects nearly 40% of individuals age 50 and above. Because of this fact, the medical team at the vein center in Nashville are dedicated to delivering health and prevention education to the community, as well as ensuring area patients have access to quality vein care.
According to Dr. Tif Siragusa, Medical Director and leading Nashville vascular doctor at the center, “Vein disease can develop in anyone of any age, so maintaining overall health throughout life is the key to reducing vein disease risk.” Other major risk factors for vein disease include obesity, pregnancy, lifestyle, and infrequent physical activity.
The center offers modern minimally invasive and non-invasive techniques in state-of-the-art facilities in both Nashville and Hermitage.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
At the very least, varicose veins have an unpleasant appearance. However, they can also lead to other serious consequences such as painful, swollen legs. Over half of all Americans have some form of vein disease. Aging is probably the biggest offender in terms of risk factors for the development of varicose veins.
Is it an overgeneralization to say that we all want to look younger and healthier? Certainly, many of us do. With modern advances in technology, there are multiple treatment options available for varicose veins. Sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment and microphlebectomy are but a few. Now you see them—now, you don’t. In the hands of leading vein doctors, it is often just that simple.
