Could Foam injection treatment for veins or years spent in

Customer Question

Could Foam injection treatment for veins or years spent in sun trigger dark freckly pigmentation on legs. The pigmentation appeared about 2 years after treatment in a private clinic for foam injections. If it was from spending years in the sun, how come I haven't got sun damage anywhere else on my body to that extent? It was the doctor who did my treatment who said it was sun damage. But I have discovered that that treatment on fair skin like mine could leave some damage.

It is more likely sun damage.
