Darker Skin, pigment and Varicose Veins

One of the issues with varicose veins with any person, irrespective of the colour of their skin is pigmentation.

However, if you have darker skin like myself, you are even more prone to pigmentation.

One way to tell is that when you scratch yourself or bump yourself, you may seem to be left with this dark patch once the bruise settles that just never goes away.

That is pigmentation for you and it can be frustrating as they are often challenging to treat on darker skin tones.

If you have varicose veins, then you may be prone to this and if you have your varicose veins treated, again there is always a risk of this as well. I always take precautions but it is one of those double edged swords.
