Betsy's Story: How Vein Care Gave Me Back My Life

My story begins five years ago. I was thirty-five years old, and at the end of the day my legs were so swollen it hurt to walk. I saw countless doctors, and they all said the same thing: "Lose weight." Yes, I was overweight, but I knew that was not what was causing the swelling and the pain. Eventually I gave up – I figured out a way to tolerate the swelling and the pain. But as time went on, and the older I got, the more my confidence plummeted. It was more than just the uncomfortableness that I felt in my legs; it was becoming something I was extremely self-conscious over. So, I lost the weight – 75 lbs. to be exact. But the swelling and the pain were still there. As silly as this sounds, when I knew I had an evening event I would plan my day to lay in bed...

Carol's Story: Healthy Legs Let Me Do the Things I Love

My first experience with the Laser & Vein center occurred from my own curiosity. I was down the street at another appointment when I noticed the new facility and decided to stop by. Dr. Prasad was my surgeon for my breast cancer procedure 15 years prior and I was excited to learn he was the doctor at the Laser & Vein center. I inherited vein disease and passed it down to my two daughters, so we started the treatment process by having the ultrasound and then the procedures. All went successfully well. As a teen, I struggled with acne, which affected my complexion later in life and left me with scarring. I met with the sweet, beautiful Brandi. She made my many trips for microderms and chemical peels so very pleasant and fun! Now I can go with little or no makeup...

Tammie's Story: No More Tired, Aching Legs

For years I was plagued with tired, aching legs. I inherited varicose veins. My maternal Grandpa had varicose veins, as did my mom and sisters. I remember my mom's legs being so bad that she had to wear compression hose year-round... even in the sweltering summers with NO air conditioning in the house! Kids would ask about the "ruffles" on her legs. Her veins were in such bad shape that they looked like ruffles. She was miserable. Years ago she had her veins stripped. That was the current procedure for that day and age. She was miserable after the painful procedure. Knowing I never wanted my legs to get as bad as my mom's, yet too scared to go through the same procedures she went through, I put up with the day-to-day pain...

Milton's Story: Treating Vein Disease to Restore Confidence

I have had vein disease most of my adult life. I got tired of the aches and pains, swelling, pressure, heaviness, and being self-conscious about my unsightly veins. It was really affecting my quality of health and life. That is when I found Dr. Prasad and the Laser & Vein center. I scheduled my first consultation with Dr. Prasad and he talked me through every step of how he would treat my disease and eliminate my symptoms. I was excited and could not wait to start. The treatments were outpatient treatments at their spa-like clinic in Jefferson City, and were virtually painless. Immediately following my first VenaCure I started to feel improvement and relief. I looked forward to each and every session and more success...
