There are some topical creams that we use for patients with hyperpigmentation from a myriad of causes in the legs: from venous insufficiency, following wounding, following surgery, following sclerotherapy ...

We recommend Sclerovase and Scleroquin plus topical creams.

You can add retinoid RR Complex Retinoid Repair Cream as well. 

Scler-x post inflammatory hyperigmentation relief complex is a great supplement to take as well. See link below.

Dark spots , ie hyperpigmentation, on the lower legs can be very difficult and tricky to remove. Most efforts do not work and some risk making it worse. Try prescription bleaching creams under supervision of a dermatologist and if this doesnt work would not pursue much further.
