PIGMENTATION

What is Pigmentation?
Skin pigmentation caused by venous insufficiency is a condition where the skin becomes discolored due to an inadequate supply of oxygenated blood to certain areas of the body.
 
If you have noticed changes in the skin of your lower legs, ankles, and feet, don’t ignore the warning signs. Unusual discoloration or texture change can often be an indication of underlying venous insufficiency.

Treatment options
Microphleboctonomy

  Microphlebectomy, also known as ambulatory phlebectomy, is an advanced, minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. During the procedure, a doctor makes tiny incisions near the affected veins and then uses a special tool to remove them.

It is a safe, non-surgical procedure with minimal risk, few side effects, and no scarring. Patients can return to normal activities within a short period of time.

VenaSeal

  The VenaSeal procedure is a minimally invasive treatment option for varicose veins that eliminates the need for surgery or sclerotherapy. It is a quick, safe, and effective way to reduce symptoms such as aching, swelling, and heaviness in the legs. During the procedure, a medical adhesive is injected directly into the vein to seal it closed. The procedure is typically done in a single session, and most people can return to their normal activities within a few days.

Radiofrequency ablation

  Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimallyinvasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. In this procedure, a thin needle is inserted into the vein, and a small electrical current is used to heat up the vein walls, damaging them and causing them to collapse. Once the vein is collapsed, it is sealed off, allowing the blood to be rerouted through healthier veins. This procedure is minimally invasive and takes between 30 and 60 minutes, and patients can typically go home within a few hours of the procedure.

  Patients will typically experience some swelling and bruising in the area, but these symptoms should subside after a few days. The treated veins will gradually fade away over the next few months, and most patients are able to resume normal activities within a few days of the procedure.
