What is Leg Discoloration?
Leg discoloration, or the appearance of a blue, red, or purple tint to the skin, typically occurs as a result of a vein condition. This symptom generally affects the lower legs, calves, and feet because the blood in your body is not flowing properly. Patients who experience skin discoloration around their lower legs may also experience sores and ulcers that won't quite heal on their own, itching legs, and chronic leg pain. If you are experiencing these symptoms in conjunction with one another, we encourage you to come in for diagnostic testing with one of our vein and artery specialists at your earliest convenience, as these are all signs of vein disease.
What Causes Leg Discoloration?
Discoloration in the legs is mainly caused by damaged or aging veins in the body not being able to pump blood the way they're supposed to. This backflow of blood allows the blood to pool in the veins and cause swelling, discomfort, and visible discoloration in the legs. Patients who most often experience this condition are women over the age of 50 who lead a mostly sedentary and inactive lifestyle.
How Much do Treatments for Leg Discoloration Cost?
The cost of your treatment for leg discoloration will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your treatment for skin discoloration will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our specialists.
