August 7, 2016. Middletown, NJ. New Jersey Vein and Laser Center releases a new article that discusses new treatment options for a condition that affects as much as 10% of the American population – Restless Leg Syndrome, or RLS. This condition causes symptoms such as aching, a “buzzing sensation,” an “itch you can’t scratch,” a “skin crawling” sensation,” or limbs jerking while awake, and is often characterized as a sleep disorder because these symptoms tend to appear when patients are trying to fall asleep. RLS is often difficult to treat, but according to these Jersey Shore vein doctors, there is a growing body of evidence showing that treatment for varicose veins can alleviate RLS symptoms.
According to Dr. Owano Pennycooke, medical director of this vein clinic in Monmouth County, “the link between vein disease and RLS is a natural one because varicose veins are the surface symptoms of a damaged circulatory system. When the varicose veins are eliminated with minimally-invasive procedures such as sclerotherapy, 99% of those treated say that their RLS symptoms are also eliminated.”
This Monmouth County vein expert hopes that the information presented in this new article will help people who suffer from varicose veins and RLS to realize that the conditions are linked, and that by seeking treatment for their varicose vein symptoms they can also gain relief from their RLS symptoms.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
With more than 30 million American adults suffering from varicose and spider veins, vein disease is a common issue. Varicose veins (large, twisting, blue or red veins that may stand out from the skin’s surface) and spider veins (smaller, web-like vein that appear on the surface of the skin) are an embarrassing and potentially painful issue. Vein disease strikes both genders, although women are more likely to experience this problem than men.
No matter a patient’s age or gender, there are a number of safe, minimally invasive, and virtually pain-free treatment options available. Techniques such as microphlebectomy, radiofrequency ablation, and sclerotherapy help improve the legs’ health and aesthetics by eliminating or removing spider and varicose veins. Minimally invasive vein treatments are effective and do not expose patients to a high risk of scarring or a lengthy recovery period
