Freckles / Lentigine Freckles Removal

What are Freckles?

Those small little dark circles covering your skin, those are freckles. As children we often consider these cute however as we get older freckles can distract from our natural complexion and make us appear older, tired and dull.

Freckles are flat, beige, brown circular spots that typically are the size of the head of a metal nail. The spots are multiple and may develop on sun-exposed skin after repeated exposure to sunlight. These are particularly common in people with red hair and a fair complexion. They may appear on children as young as 1 or 2 years of age.

Many people are not confident in how their freckles make them look. There are ways to remove freckles from the skin. One method is laser, which is the single most effective way to remove freckles. Laser stands for intense pulse light. This treatment is suitable for those that are wanting to remove freckles or reduce excessive freckling from the skin or want an even skin tone.

The benefits are of having laser freckle treatment done is there is no surgery involved and patients can often return to their daily activities as soon as the procedure is finished. Secondly, it is quick on the skin. Often the skin looks more fresher and skin tone will be more even.

Most freckles are generally uniform in colour but can vary somewhat- they may be reddish, yellow, tan, light brown, brown, or black — but they are basically slightly darker than the surrounding skin. They may become darker and more apparent after sun exposure and lighten in the winter months. Freckles are due to an increase in the amount of dark pigment called melanin and an increase in the total number of pigment-producing cells called melanocytes.

    What causes freckles to suddenly appear?

    Usually, freckles appear after prolonged exposure to sunlight. The reasons or this is that the UV radiation from the sun can cause your melanocyte cells to produce more melanin, which is responsible for skin pigmentation. This reaction to the sun means that freckles can appear and already existing freckles become darker and therefore more noticeable.

    Are freckles rare?

    Most people aren’t born with freckles, but they can appear throughout childhood if you are exposed to a lot of sunlight. Freckles are not rare, but they can be less visible on adult skin.

    What are the most effective freckle removal treatment options?

    At Perfection Cosmetic, we focus on the most effective freckle removal treatments. These include laser or Intense Pulse Light treatments. Laser treatment requires no surgery and can also rejuvenate the look of your skin after the treatment, which takes less than 30 minutes.

    How long does each treatment take?

    Each treatment session takes between 30 – 40 minutes. We suggest a wait of minimum 3 weeks between two sessions for better results.

    What happens when freckles are removed with laser treatment?

    Laser freckle removal treatment causes more skin flare-ups than laser treatment does. After laser treatment, your freckles will appear darker and the skin around the affected area will be redder than usual. Within about two weeks, the darker freckles will begin to scab and then will peel off of your face.

    Does the treatment hurt? What does it feel like?

    It is like a tingling sensation and the session would barely take 30-40 minutes.

    Can freckles be removed permanently?

    Freckles may reappear over time. This is because of the ageing process and the natural reactions of the skin to sunlight so we can’t guarantee that our freckle removal treatment will be permanent. You can decrease the chance of freckles, however, through using sun cream and avoiding prolonged and direct sunlight.

    What happens if you pull a freckle off?

    Pulling a freckle off yourself might result in bleeding, scarring and even infection. Leave freckle removal to the professionals!

    What is the minimum age for Laser Freckle Removal treatment?

    The person should be at-least 18 or above in age to get laser treatments done.
