Fractional lasers to remove sclerotherapy scars
Your scars will improve with a combination of fractional laser and Melapeels. I would begin with Melapads twice daily.
Skin brightener after vein procedures
Topical hydroquinone cream will help reduce the hyperpigmentation.
Try a product from Kare Skin on the link below.
It appears that the areas where incisions were made have discolored, which is called hyperpigmentation. Certain skin tones are more likely to have hyperpigmentation after surgeries or any trauma to the skin from cuts and even bug bites. Typically these areas will fade over time although they may not completely disappear. Protecting the areas from the sun will help them fade as well. Use at least an SPF of 50 or greater to prevent the areas from darkening due to sun exposure.
