Thank you for your question in regards to sclerotherapy. Brown pigment after sclerotherapy is common and can take up to a year to subside. Some lasers can help break up the pigment to speed up the process. To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.
Sclerotherapy. Is this brown pigmentation normal?
Pigmentation after sclerotherapy is comon and can take over 12 month to resolve. However, if you are developing tenderness over the vein, then please seek advice from your treating doctor
This sounds like post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) this can happen. It can take up to a year for it to subside. Some lasers can help speed up the process of healing. Follow up with your provider for options.
Hyperpigmentation On Face/Body -- Clear + Brilliant/Viva, Microneelding/PRP, Skin lightening/Peels, Aerolase, Pico Laser
This can be improved with tattoo lasers and skin lightening. I suggest no more treatments till this improves. Best, Dr. Emer.
Hyperpigmentation after sclerotherapy
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can occur after sclerotherapy. Unfortunately, it is a possible side effect of the procedure. Luckily it is only temporary and should resolve. There are lasers that can be used to expedite the healing. Good luck.
