Q: I have some hyper pigmentation on one of my legs after having ambulatory phlebectomy and endovenous laser ablation. What topical treatment can I use to help fade this hyperpigmentation? Or should I just give it time to fade?
A: There is little benefit from hydroquinone creams. These tend to fade over time, but can last up to a year or longer. Be patient for now and avoid sun exposure on these areas.
