Freckle appears as small tan or light brown spots on the skin. It can be caused to the collections of leftover melanin stains that stay on the top layer of unprotected skin. Even though this condition is not harmful to the skin, some prefer to remove them for a more even complexion.
The main treatments for controlling freckle include:
- Lightening cream
Skin lightening creams are an effective method for treating both natural and sun-related freckles.
Microdermabrasion employs a stream of small particles to get rid of the outer layer of the skin. It is done over the course of several sessions.
- Chemical peel
Peeling is now considered an effective way to lessen the appearance of freckles and may even help in the elimination of lighter freckles.
- Laser treatment
Laser technology is utilized to burn the blood vessels just underneath the freckles, reducing their appearance or removing them entirely.
