Personalized Medical Treatment for Skin Discoloration & Hyperpigmentation
Skin discoloration happens when iron from the red blood cells gets deposited under the skin and “stains” the skin. This occurs when there is increased venous congestion causing a leaking of red blood cells into the tissues, especially the lower legs. The venous congestion can be from underlying varicose veins. When this symptom is present, it is usually a sign of a more advanced stage of venous disease.
Once the tissue is stained, it takes a long time for the body to clear. If the underlying venous disease is not treated then the staining will get worse and skin thickening, edema with potentially venous ulcers may occur.
