“Non-invasive laser treatments for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hemosiderin staining are typically quite effective and require several treatments which are usually well tolerated.” - Roy G. Geronemus, M.D., featured in New York Social Diary
Spider veins, blue veins and varicose veins are generally the products of genetics or pregnancy.  The most common treatment is sclerotherapy.  Vein treatment, however, can cause discoloration to the skin.  Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hemosiderin staining can occur on the legs following sclerotherapy, surgery, trauma or from venous insufficiency.  Fortunately, there are several non-invasive lasers which can effectively treat these conditions including the q-switched ruby laser, q-switched Nd:Yag laser, Picosure laser, the Clear & Brilliant laser and the LaseMD laser informs dermatologist and laser expert, Roy Geronemus, MD.
