Brown spots on the legs can have various causes and may be a result of different conditions.


Brown spots on the legs can be caused by an increase in melanin production, leading to hyperpigmentation. This can occur due to sun exposure, hormonal changes, or skin inflammation.

Age spots:

Also known as liver spots or solar lentigines, age spots are flat, brown patches that develop on areas exposed to the sun, such as the legs. They are commonly seen in older adults and are caused by cumulative sun damage over time.


Melasma is a common skin condition characterized by brown or gray-brown patches on the face or other areas exposed to the sun, including the legs. It is often associated with hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy or with the use of birth control pills.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation:

After a skin injury or inflammation, such as acne, eczema, or a wound, the affected area may develop brown spots as it heals. This is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Dermatitis neglecta:

This condition occurs when poor hygiene or infrequent washing leads to the accumulation of dirt, oils, and sweat on the skin. Over time, this buildup can cause brown patches or plaques.

Venous stasis dermatitis:

When blood flow is impaired in the veins of the legs, it can lead to a condition called venous stasis dermatitis. This can cause brown discoloration, often accompanied by swelling, itching, and skin changes.

VSC uses a product called Dermaka which is a topical cream that is primarily used for skincare purposes. It is commonly recommended for individuals with various skin conditions, including:

  • Post-procedure skin care: Dermaka is often used after dermatological procedures, such as laser treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or surgery. It can help soothe the skin, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.

  • Bruising and swelling: The cream is also used to alleviate bruising and swelling caused by traumatic injuries or surgical procedures. It may help reduce the appearance of bruises and speed up the healing process.

  • Spider veins and varicose veins: Dermaka may be applied to areas affected by spider veins (small, visible blood vessels) or varicose veins (enlarged, swollen veins). It can help soothe the skin, reduce inflammation, and improve the appearance of these conditions.

  • Dry, itchy, or irritated skin: People with dry, itchy, or irritated skin, including conditions like eczema or dermatitis, may find relief by using Dermaka. It contains moisturizing ingredients that can hydrate the skin and provide a soothing effect.

  • Sunburn: Dermaka can be used to help soothe and moisturize sunburned skin, providing relief from pain and discomfort.

It’s important to note that while Dermaka may offer benefits for these conditions, individual results can vary. It’s always advisable to consult with a dermatologist or healthcare professional before using any new skincare product, especially if you have specific skin concerns or conditions.
