Freckles are small flat spots that occur on sun-exposed areas of the face and body. Freckles can range in color from red to brown and are most common in people with fairer complexions; however, anyone at any age can develop freckles. Freckles occur from an overproduction of melanin. In other words, rather than tanning when exposed to the Sun, the skin develops small colored spots, or freckles. Although freckles are harmless and can sometimes be temporary, people who have freckles that persist may choose to treat their freckles for cosmetic reasons.
Some patients may want to visibly reduce their freckles to have a consistently more uniform, even skin tone. While freckles typically fade with time, various treatments can help reduce the appearance of freckles to achieve a more evenly toned facial complexion. Various at-home remedies may be used to try and fade freckles, yet these oftentimes are not effective, especially compared to professional aesthetic procedures. Professional aesthetic treatments offer a more effective and permanent option to reduce the appearance of freckles. We offer laser treatments that each work deep within the skin to help reduce the appearance of freckles to achieve a more balanced, even skin tone.
