Freckles are multiple, flat, spots on the skin due to uneven distribution of melanin (skin pigment) in those areas. They are usually situated on sun-exposed areas of the skin, including the face, neck, arms, and shoulders and usually darken after sun exposure. Usually, freckles start to occur at a very young age. Freckles most commonly occur in people with lighter or fairer skin types, and in those who have a genetic predisposition to developing freckles.
Freckles, which are higher in melanin than normal skin, tend to attract the energy from this laser wavelength. The laser energy that is absorbed by the freckles leads to the destruction of the melanin in the freckle and its removal.
How does Laser Pigmentation Removal work?
The laser is absorbed only by cells containing an excessive concentration of pigmentation which causes efficient destruction while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.
Numbing cream is applied for 30-45 mins. The laser is delivered to freckles spots.
The light pulses produced by the laser can feel similar to mild flicking and for most people is not too uncomfortable. Immediate darkening is noticed after treatment. For 7-10 days the area will look like a dark scab which eventually sheds off
