Staining is a complication of sclerotherapy and usually over about 1year will resolve on its own. I see a area of clotted vein that I would drain (evacuate) with a needle. This will help the blood to reabsorb. Some topical creams such as retin A, hydroquinolone and malerase may help. A q-switch can be used but I would give it more time to heal on its own.
Melarase PM and Qswitch laser for sclerotherapy marks
I would recommend a combination of Melarase PM creams, Melapads, and initiation of q switch laser therapy.
