What is Discoloration?
Leg discoloration is the purple, blue, or red tint to the skin that occurs as a result of a vein condition. Typically affecting the lower legs, calves, and feet, this type of skin discoloration typically takes place when the veins are not properly circulating blood flow and the blood is pooling towards the lower body. Patients who experience leg discoloration may also experience open sores and ulcers that won't quite heal on their own, itching, and leg pain. Each of these symptoms can either be attributed to varicose veins or another vein disease.
What Causes Discoloration?
The main cause of leg discoloration is the veins in the body not being able to pump blood back up to the heart like they're supposed to and the blood pooling to the lower extremities. Patients who most often experience leg discoloration are women over the age of 50 who lead sedentary and inactive lifestyles. If you are experiencing skin discoloration in addition to a variety of other symptoms, we encourage you to schedule a diagnostic appointment with our vein and artery specialists. They'll be able to accurately determine the root cause of your leg discoloration and provide you with a fully personalized treatment plan to help relieve your discomfort.
How Much Does Treatment for Discoloration Cost?
The cost of your treatment for discoloration will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our doctors.
