Varicose Veins And The Risk of Blood Clots

As varicose veins are a blood circulation problem, patients may wonder whether there is an increased risk of blood clots. 

Some experts say that varicose veins are not especially likely to cause a blood clot, but there is now research that indicates the reverse and in fact, according to a report published in 2018, varicose veins may quintuple the risk of blood clots.

Varicose veins are caused by blood pooling instead of returning efficiently to the heart, due to inefficient veins. The pooling blood causes the vein to become more visible, lookin swollen, stretched, lumpy and deformed. As symptoms progress, varicose veins can be uncomfortable too.

However, researchers in Taiwan believe that varicose veins increase the risk of DVT (deep vein thrombosis).

Dr. Shyue-Luen Chang, a phlebologist in the department of dermatology at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taoyuan said:

“Varicose veins are not merely a cosmetic or symptomatic concern, because they may be associated with increasing risk of more serious disease.”

The exact relationship is not understood and Change said that more research was required to explore whether varicose veins cause the clots or are a risk for them.

Dr. Maja Zaric, interventional cardiologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, responded to the research saying:

“Given the very high prevalence of varicose veins in the general population worldwide, the results of this trial should trigger future studies to further investigate the effect of varicose veins on the inflammation and formation of a blood clot, and to assess the link between the severity of varicose veins and DVT.”

This may lead to earlier or more widespread treatment of varicose veins, which are often dismissed as a ‘cosmetic’ problem. A link between varicose veins and blood clots would potentially lead to more aggressive treatment to prevent complications.

Meanwhile in the UK, NHS treatment for varicose veins means that only the most serious cases are considered for surgery.

Vein Problems and the Ageing Process

Vein problems unfortunately become more common with age.

Dr Ross Perry, founder of the London Vein Centre, explains how facial and varicose veins occur, what factors are involved as well as age, and how the problem can be treated.

How do facial thread veins occur?

“Facial spider veins are relatively common and are caused by genetics, too much alcohol, sun exposure and rosacea. As we age, the skin becomes thinner and blood vessels become visible.

How can facial/spider veins be treated?

“The most effective treatments for spider veins are lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies which work by focusing on colour contrast between the vein and the surrounding skin. The light energy works to seek and destroy the problematic veins, leaving clearer skin. Blood simply diverts through other, healthier and less visible veins.”

Where do we get varicose veins?

“Varicose veins happen most often on your calves or inside of your legs and bulge above the skin’s surface, where they have a characteristic blue/purple colour and lumpy/twisted appearance.

“Although varicose veins can occur in any part of your body, you’ll usually find them in your lower body, legs, or feet.”

Why are they more common with age?

“Varicose veins are more common in older adults, because of the lifetime of wear and tear on the valves.”

Varicose veins are simply due to veins that have become inefficient over time. As well as age, other factors include genetic predisposition, weight, alcohol consumption and lifestyle/activity.

How can varicose veins be treated?

“These days laser treatment for varicose veins means the old version of surgical ‘stripping’ or pulling out of the veins is rarely performed. Micro or minimally invasive surgery has now superseded all the previous forms of vein surgery. In some cases, micro surgery is carried out in some cases at the same time as the endovenous laser treatment to help remove small areas that are simply too bulky to melt away. This procedure is known as phlebectomy and can also be used on its own for smaller veins if indicated.”

Laser, Nd:YAG or IPL for Facial Thread Veins?

Laser, Nd:YAG and IPL may all be suggested as high-tech, injection-free treatments for facial thread veins – but they are not the same thing at all. Which is best?

The two systems work in a different way.

  • IPL machines are more likened to a very bright light. This light is polychromatic, not collimated, and delivers a broader spectrum of light energy, which may then be filtered to exclude certain wavelengths but still leave more than one. This is less precise than laser and therefore targets multiple colour chromophores. Therefore there is the risk of surrounding tissue receiving the IPL energy as well as the target. This is why many professionals will not recommend IPL for treating thread veins in olive or darker skin tones. 
  • Laser machines emit a monochromatic, collimated (parallel) and coherent light. Thanks to this precision, lasers target a single colour chromophore; which in the case of thread vein removal is haemoglobin; leaving the surrounding tissue untouched.
  • Nd:YAG is a specific type of laser which laser delivers a burst of energy using longer pulse durations. This is more controlled and gentle, yet the laser reaches the deeper layers in the skin

In all cases, the basic principle of treatment is to damage and destroy the veins, which are then broken down by the body and removed by the immune system and metabolic processes.

However, systems which achieve this result in a gentle manner leaving the surrounding tissue intact give a more agreeable result with less inflammation, reduced redness and lower risk.

This means that Nd:YAG is the treatment of choice for those professionals fortunate enough to have access to the equipment.

Nd:YAG Laser at London Vein Centre

Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ main London Vein Treatment Centres in Harley Street and Putney offer the sophisticated Harmony XL Pro Laser treatment, which uses Nd:YAG technology to target problem capillaries, vessels or veins with targeted laser energy. This damages the veins so that they shrink, shrivel up and then disappear. Laser energy also works to stimulate healing and cell renewal in the treated area for clearer-looking skin. It is a gentle and effective treatment for facial thread veins on the face.

For larger thread veins, microsclerotherapy injections are a popular option. The company also offer micro-cautery treatment.

All thread vein treatments are carried out by skilled and experienced doctors.

Varicose Vein in Thighs Treatment Results

Before & After Photos

Cosmedics’ London Vein Centre has revealed fabulous treatment results from varicose vein removal treatment. 

This client had been struggling with the appearance and then the development of varicose veins in her thighs.

Varicose veins are more commonly associated with the calves, because they can be seen there even through tights, leggings or stockings. Yet varicose veins can also appear higher up the leg above the knee.

Once they first appear, it can be tempting to hope they’ll go away, but unfortunately once the veins have become ‘insufficient’ they will not recover and the lumpy veins will get bigger and more uncomfortable.

The results below show that the latest EVLA Laser Varicose Vein Removal Treatment methods give an excellent result, as if the veins were never even there in the first place.

Treatment is fast and efficient and carried out on a ‘walk in walk out’ basis with no overnight stay.

Laser a Revolution for Facial Thread Veins

The latest advances in medical laser technology have transformed the treatment of thread veins and facial veins in particular.

Previously, treatment tended to focus on use of injections to break down the visible and unsightly thread veins. However, this treatment is better suited to larger areas and less well-suited to the delicate facial skin.

The advent of laser means that tiny red or blue thread veins, including broken capillaries and telangiectasia, can now be quickly and effectively treated using this advanced technology.

How Laser Works on Thread Veins

Laser can be used to cut, vaporise or coagulate by targeting tissue which absorbs laser light. It is versatile and powerful, yet can be controlled and used with great precision when it comes to treating tiny little vascular lesions.

Laser light has some quite specific properties which make it suited to treating thread veins. It has a single wavelength which can be precisely directed and is non-ionising, making it safe for skin treatments.

The laser is set to a wavelength which will be absorbed by the thread vein, heating it so as to cause permanent damage. The surrounding skin is not affected – the laser energy works within the skin by selectively destroying the target thread veins while leaving the skin intact, as the darker coloured thread veins absorb the laser energy while the surrounding lighter tissues do not.

Once the veins have been broken down, they quickly fade away, being broken down by the body’s own processes while blood flows through alternative and healthier routes.

London Laser Vein Treatment

Cosmedics Skin Clinics’ main London Vein Treatment Centres in Harley Street and Putney offer the sophisticated Harmony XL Pro Laser treatment, which targets problem capillaries, vessels or veins with targeted laser energy. This damages the veins so that they shrink, shrivel up and then disappear. Laser energy also works to stimulate healing and cell renewal in the treated area for clearer-looking skin. It is a gentle and effective treatment for facial thread veins on the face.

For larger thread veins, microsclerotherapy injections are a popular option. The company also offer micro-cautery treatment.

Why the NHS Compression Bandages Leg Ulcers

Why does the NHS treat leg ulcers primarily using compression bandages, when it is not the most effective treatment for the problem?

Compression bandages are the most common treatment for leg ulcers, but they treat the symptom (ulcers) not the cause (venous insufficiency).

Leg ulcers affect an estimated 500,000 adults in the UK, so it’s a big problem. The recommended treatment is compression bandages, which place pressure on the wound and help circulation through healthy veins. Yet compression does little to address the underlying issue and failed leg ulcer treatments cost the NHS an additional £2-3 million a year.

So why isn’t the NHS addressing the underlying cause of varicose veins? EVLA/EVLT (endovenous laser ablation) is a fast and effective treatment which can get rid of varicose veins quickly by destroying the malfunctioning veins so that the blood diversts through healthier veins. This would treat the underlying cause, allowing leg ulcers to clear up.

A number of reasons might be suggested why the NHS still recommends compression bandaging:

  • Cost of delivering alternative treatments such as EVLA/EVLT (laser varicose vein treatment) is higher in the short term. The equipment is an expensive investment and treatment is delivered by a vascular surgeon
  • Availability of EVLA on the NHS is very scarce, as the NHS has cut back on spend for varicose vein treatments
  • NHS staff have to follow treatment recommendations, which point to compression bandaging
  • Bandaging ulcers is faster and cheaper to deliver than laser surgery, as it can be carried out by a nurse rather than surgeon
  • Many providers are not trained in the newer treatments – there are not enough with the knowledge to recommend them or capacity/training/resource to deliver them

The fact that compression bandaging is ineffective leaves many patients frustrated and disappointed.

Treating Varicose Veins

Varicose vein removal treatment is a solution for leg ulcers, as it gets to the root of the problem by destroying bad veins and improving blood flow to the area.

While there is little NHS availability, treatment is available in the private sector.

Cosmedics’ private London Vein Treatment Centres offer the latest advanced laser, chemical, mechanical and surgical treatment options. These treatments can be done relatively quickly as only local anaesthetic is required and are available on a ‘walk in walk out’ basis with no overnight stay.

Options include:

  • ClariVein® treatment, where a mechanical action causes the vein to spasm and then a special chemical is delivered to seal the vein
  • EVLA treatment uses a laser to destroy the veins which are then broken down by the body’s metabolic processes
  • Foam sclerotherapy uses a chemical to get rid of smaller varicose and larger thread veins
  • Micro surgery is also available. This may be used alongside other treatments, removing the troublesome veins to minimise risk recurrence

4 in 10 Women 50+ Have Varicose Veins

Estimate Source: Chicago Vein Institute

Are you female and over 50?

If you are suffering from varicose veins, it may not be good news, but could be of some comfort to know that you’re not alone.

In fact figures from the Chicago Vein Institute suggest that varicose veins affect 41% of women over the age of 50, making it a very large group of sufferers.

This common circulation problem can cause considerable distress. Initially, the concern may be largely cosmetic. Varicose veins are unpleasant to look at and all the more so as they tend to suggest that the person is of a more mature age.

As the condition progresses, the concerns include increasing achiness and tiredness, then pain which at first occasional, will eventually develop to become more continuous. When varicose veins are more advanced, the poor circulation can also cause skin issues such as itchiness, eczema and dry skin, as the blood supply and oxygen are not getting to the cells. Even ulcers can arise from varicose veins, which can take a long time to heal even with specialist care. See Leg Ulcers Treatment Guidelines.

It is worth understanding that unfortunately varicose veins are not a problem which will go away. There is no cream or pill to resolve the problem and while exercise and putting your legs up can alleviate the symptoms, they will not bring about healing. Once the veins have become inefficient it is a cyclical downward spiral.

The good news is that modern varicose vein treatments can remove the damaged veins and give a rapid improvement for the patient.

The private sector offers a number of treatment options on a ‘day case’ basis:

  • ClariVein® treatment from £1,895 – a mechanical action combines with a special chemical to seal the vein
  • EVLA treatment from £1,650 – laser treatment to destroy the veins from the inside
  • Foam sclerotherapy from £500 – a chemical injection which works to get rid of smaller varicose and larger thread veins
  • Micro surgery from £500 – most often used alongside other treatments, physically removing the troublesome veins after laser/injections

Leg Ulcers Treatment Guidelines

Leg ulcers are a fairly common complication of varicose veins. They can be unpleasant to look at and very uncomfortable for the patient. 

A leg ulcer is a sore caused by insufficient blood supply, which means that fairly simple wounds can fail to heal properly as they are not receiving enough oxygen. The skin can become swollen, painful and itchy. There may also be discharge or scaliness.

Without treatment, varicose vein ulcers can be a very long term problem. Even with treatment, they can take 4-6 weeks to heal.

NICE – National Institute for Health and Care Excellence Guidelines

The guidelines from NICE list out what to expect from NHS treatment for varicose vein ulcers. This would normally be carried out by a professional with expertise in wound management e.g. district nurse, tissue viability nurse.

  • Cleaning the ulcer with warm water or saline
  • Dressing the ulcer with low-adherent dressings, replaced weekly or more often in case of discharge/infection
  • Compression therapy, usually applied to the ankle area to overcome venous hypertension (only when the infection is resolved)
  • Considering prescribing pentoxifylline to aid ulcer healing, taken 3 times daily for up to 6 months
  • Treating associated conditions e.g. pain, infection, oedema, eczema
  • Lifestyle advice e.g. exercise, weight loss, smoking, compression stockings
  • Arranging referral to specialist vascular clinics or dermatology where appropriate

The treatment guidelines focus primarily on treating the ulcers and then preventing their recurrence through compression.

Wearing the appropriate grade and type of compressions stockings, ideally for a minimum of 5 years. Lifelong use of compression stockings may be considered in people with recurrent venous leg ulcers, if acceptable to the person.

Of course, treatments will vary according to the individual patient and practitioner. For more information, please see the full NICE guidelines at https://cks.nice.org.uk/leg-ulcer-venous#!scenario

The guidelines for venous leg ulcer treatment focus primarily on maintenance.

However, some patients are keen to pursue a varicose vein removal treatment, in order to get to the root of the problem and improve blood flow to the area.

Treating Varicose Veins

Varicose vein treatment on the NHS has unfortunately been cut back over the years to a small number of very severe cases.

However, the latest advanced laser and chemical treatment options available at Cosmedics’ private London Vein Treatment Centres on a ‘walk in walk out’ basis with no overnight stay.

These treatments can be done relatively quickly as only local anaesthetic is required.  The downtime and recovery are minimal, especially compared with the traditional ‘vein stripping’ which was most commonly carried out on the NHS.

Options include:

  • ClariVein® treatment, where a mechanical action causes the vein to spasm and then a special chemical is delivered to seal the vein
  • EVLA treatment uses a laser to destroy the veins which are then broken down by the body’s metabolic processes
  • Foam sclerotherapy uses a chemical to get rid of smaller varicose and larger thread veins

Can Varicose Veins Burst?

Varicose veins are a fairly common condition which often runs in families and especially affects women. But did you know that in rare cases, untreated varicose veins can actually burst?

Fortunately, varicose veins are a progressive condition, which means that they get worse gradually.

Initially, the main concerns may be tolerable. The first symptoms are usually an achy feeling and heaviness towards the end of the day, especially after spending time on your feet.

Then, typically, cosmetic concerns start to emerge, with the characteristic blue/purple bulky and twisted veins becoming noticeable.

The third stage is when the skin around the area starts to suffer, becoming discoloured and dry or itchy.

The final stage is that the damaged skin forms ulcers.

At this stage, varicose veins can occasionally burst. Thankfully this is rare, but is painful and messy. The reason is a combination of the buildup of pressure within the vein and the weaknesses in the condition of the skin.

What Happens if Varicose Veins Burst?

If you are reading this as it has just happened to you, then apply a tight bandage or dressing and seek medical attention asap. If you can’t contact your doctor go to A&E. Treatment will initially involve stopping the bleeding and allowing your skin to recover.  It will not necessarily include surgery to resolve the varicose veins themselves.

This is definitely an issue where prevention is the best course of action, to avoid the potential of the more severe situation arising.

The earlier varicose vein removal treatment is undertaken the less invasive and uncomfortable it is likely to be.

Remember, varicose veins don’t get better on their own. Rest and compression garments may help you cope with them, but the breakdown of valves in the veins is irreversible.

Top Santé: Thread Vein Treatment SOS

Top Santé magazine’s feature on troublesome thread veins looks at the clinical treatment options – sclerotherapy, microsclerotherapy and lasers. 

The feature explains that the size, severity and location of the thread veins will determine the best course of treatment. Dr Ross Perry, GP and founder of Cosmedics Skin Clinics and The London Vein Centre, was asked to provide some information for the writing of this article and he adds his own comments:

Sclerotherapy

Top Santé says:

“A solution is injected with a very small needle, superficially into the veins, causing the lining of the vein to swell and become sticky.

“Compression is then applied and, over a period of time, the vein will heal, close and fade away.”

Dr Ross Perry adds:

“There is some bruising after that lasts for 2-3 weeks and you need to wear support stockings for a week after the treatment. This is considered the gold standard in terms of treatment for leg thread veins as laser treatments seem more up to date the results are not always as good and are often more painful.”

Microsclerotherapy

Top Santé says:

“The same treatment as sclerotherapy but it involves the use of tiny needles to treat very thin and small veins. Some practitioners may offer this for the face but others favour laser for this delicate area.”

Lasers

Top Santé says:

“When laser energy is absorbed by blood inside the veins, it heats up the vessel wall, which collapses and dissolves.”

Dr Ross Perry adds:

“These work well for facial veins and cause the veins to collapse and seal up via the light energy. Treatments are well tolerated with a  small amount of redness for up to a day or so after and are normally done every 3-4 weeks for 3-4 sessions.”

Thread Vein Treatment Prices – Top Tip

Top Santé shared this advice from Dr Ross Perry:

“It’s fairly easy to compare prices for injections, but laser systems vary widely in terms of the technology and training of the practitioner.

“Ensure you choose a suitably qualified person who has the right equipment for treating veins in particular as opposed to laser hair removal or skin tightening.”
