Owensboro Heart & Vascular, Vein Clinic
As many as 60% of all American women and men suffer from some form of vein disorder, but women are more often affected. For women age 35-59, approximately 50% are affected and this percentage increases with age. It also is estimated that 41% of all women will suffer from abnormal leg veins by the time they are in the 50s.
The symptoms caused by varicose and spider veins range from a cosmetic nuisance to an aching, heavy or cramping sensation, to a painful condition which limits enjoyable activities or even the ability to work. The most severe cases can lead to significant swelling and ulcer formations on the legs.

Leg Vein FAQs
Cosmetic laser treatment helps remove leg veins. Below are answers to some of the most common patient questions.
What causes unwanted veins?
Red veins, blue veins or purple veins can be a result of sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, age or genetics.
How does laser treatment work?
A cosmetic laser emits a prescribed dose of energy to the vein. The laser “selectively” targets the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel will naturally disappear.
How many treatments are required?
Typically only one or two laser treatments are required and results can be seen in 3-4 weeks. Treatment time usually varies depending on the size of the area treated.
Does it hurt?
The laser treatment causes only minimal discomfort. Any redness or swelling should be gone within a day and you’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately.
