Why am I having pigmentation problems after RFA?
ClosureFast -3 answers
I had RFA (ClosureFast) for GSV in the right leg for varicose veins.
2 weeks later, I had superficial thrombophlebitis/phlebitis, which was painful/tender just below the knee on inside of leg (medial side of leg). The "line" was ~ 3 cm along treated GSV. This faded with Voltaren gel.
Since then, I have pigmentation only in this area. My concern is sometimes the pigmentation looks a bit "more" red, usually after exercise. No pain or swelling. What could this be? U/S showed successful closure.
