August 20, 2016. Middletown, NJ. New Jersey Vein and Laser Center publishes a new article in which they present four important facts that patients need to know about venous reflux disease. According to this prestigious Jersey Shore vein doctor, venous reflux will at a minimum affect 72% of women and 42% of men by the time they reach their 60s.
Dr. Owano Pennycooke, medical director of one of the best vein clinics in Monmouth County, shares these facts about venous reflux for two primary reasons: “First, venous reflux is the most common cause of varicose veins, which can cause pain and weakness so profound that patients become effectively disabled. And second, despite what many people would like to believe, venous reflux doesn’t go away or “get better on its own” if you don’t seek treatment – it gets worse. So given how pervasive this little-understood disease is, it’s important to tell people the facts about it.”
This Monmouth vein specialist hopes that his article reaches a wide audience in the general public and helps them to realize that venous reflux is a serious disease that requires treatment by a specialist.

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
