MichelleMichelle is a busy mom with three girls, aged 7, 10, and 12. She and her girls are always busy together cooking, gardening, playing games, and doing gymnastics.

She first noticed her varicose veins in high school when she saw them protruding from her leg. The original area was bumpy and knotty, and started causing her pain. They started throbbing and eventually made her tired.

As a grown woman she started feeling them more and more with each pregnancy, to the point where she was worried about picking up her children because she was afraid they might hit her leg and cause her pain.

Why Michelle Came to Vein Clinics of America

Michelle decided to seek treatment after training for a run. As her training had increased, she was noticing more soreness, and began to worry if she was causing more damage by exercising.

Then she found out about Vein Clinics of America through her general physician.

Michelle’s Treatment

Michelle says, “The staff really put my mind at ease by going over every part of the process with me. They did the laser treatment on the largest damaged vein, and that was just really neat, and really quick and easy. For the lesser vein, I was injected with the solution that kills those veins. That was very pain-free. The treatment was so simple, I wish I had done it sooner.”

Michelle says, “After treatment I could do all my regular activities; I was able to run within a few days. Since I had my veins treated my running is much more enjoyable. I just finished a 5-mile race in my hometown. I’m not afraid to help my kids with their acrobatics and their cheerleading.

I would tell anyone suffering from varicose veins to get them treated, to get them looked into. It’s far easier than you would ever imagine. Getting my vein treatment is one of the best things that I have ever done.”

LisaLisa is a busy mother of four young children who also owns a cookie business, so she doesn’t sit unless she’s sleeping. She first noticed pain from varicose veins when she was a 16-year-old cheerleader. Things got worse with her first pregnancy and worsened each time she got pregnant. Though in her late 20s, she felt like she had 80-year-old legs, with throbbing, achy pain. Though sad and disappointed, she began to accept the situation as something she would just have to live with.

Why Lisa Came to Vein Clinics of America

Lisa found out about Vein Clinics of America through a friend. Her first thought was that the treatment would be too expensive, but she was told that many insurance companies cover the procedure. She was excited to hear that she might actually have options, that her disease wasn’t something she would be stuck living with for the rest of her life.

Lisa’s Treatment

Lisa says, “It was the best thing that I have ever done. A major, complete transformation, that’s what I felt I had. I got my legs back.

If I hadn’t had vein treatments from Vein Clinics of America, I could not have started this cookie company and open a bakery and pursue these dreams. I love that I was able to teach my kids that you can be strong and beautiful. It’s so well worth it. It’s nice to be able to go out running or go to the gym and be able to sport shorts that I want to wear and feel comfortable and confident in my body.”

After Treatment*

Lisa says, “One of my dreams was to do a figure competition. So, after a few years of vein treatments, I decided I was ready. Not only did I get up there and look awesome, but I won first place. The year after that I won Mrs. Illinois, but I also won the swim suit competition. None of these things would have been possible if I didn’t have vein treatments done from Vein Clinics of America.

I would highly recommend Vein Clinics of America for everybody that’s suffering from a vein disease because you’re able to pursue your dreams, become comfortable with your body. It’s just a dream come true.”

GeorgeGeorge is a dog handler who loves his job.

When he was in middle school his legs were big, bulgy, and puffy. Children can be cruel, and he remembers kids looking at the veins in his legs and expressing their disgust. As a result, not only was he not popular but he found himself bullied. To avoid further bullying, he covered up, wearing long sweat pants, rarely wearing shorts.

He’d loved running when he had been in elementary school, but as he got older, not only could he not run, but walking became a problem.

Why George Came to Vein Clinics of America

George adores the dogs he takes care of but found that playing with them was making him so tired that he would have to sit down. Then he found out about Vein Clinics of America through commercials he saw on TV.

George’s Treatment

George says, “I went in and found it really easy, really pain-free. They treat you like you’re family. You walk in and they greet you with a, ‘Hey, how you doin’?” The doctor walks you through every single step. There are no surprises.”

After Treatment*

George says, “I’ve never been able to just run, for miles and miles, and now I’m just like, ’Hey, I can run without stopping!’ I feel like a whole new person. No tired, rundown George. More of an upbeat, physical George.

I’ll tell anyone with varicose veins, ‘Don’t wait, go to Vein Clinics of America so you can live a new life.’”

MarcyMarcy is a busy stay-at-home mom with three girls and three boys, all of whom are very active and spirited. She loves cooking healthy meals and having fun with her family.

She first noticed her varicose veins during her first pregnancy. With each successive pregnancy, it got worse, with the pain ranging from annoying to excruciating.

Why Marcy Came to Vein Clinics of America

Marcy is a person who always likes to be active and on the go, but her pain was progressing to the point that sometimes she was so uncomfortable she didn’t feel like exercising. Then she heard about Vein Clinics of America after the birth of her twins.

Marcy’s Treatment

Marcy had laser treatment done on both of her main veins, and injections with medication for the feeder veins.

Marcy says, “The doctor explained everything to me, right up front. He was very clear about what they were going to be doing. I don’t think I would have been able to get the treatment done if I couldn’t keep moving while I was doing it; and right when I left the office I was on the go. Before, I couldn’t be on my feet for such a long period of time without being really uncomfortable.”

After Treatment*

Marcy says,Now I can do marathon cooking sessions, I can stay up late, I can have my girls with me late into the night, now I can do everything. There’s no more itchiness, no more throbbing.

I didn’t realize how bad it was until it go so much better. I feel so much happier now than I did before.”
