A freckle is a small, round spot of medium-to-dark-brown colour on the skin. Unlike a mole, it is always flat – never raised. Freckles tend to darken in summer and lighten or completely vanish in winter, when skin is exposed to sunlight less often.
It is possible to safely remove freckles on the face and other areas with the use of intense pulsed light (IPL).
A freckle is an area of the skin with a higher concentration of melanin, or dark pigment. When UV rays hit your skin, its outer layer (epidermis) thickens slightly. This causes the pigment-producing cells (melanocytes), to produce more melanin, making your freckles darker. This is why freckles will usually appear in areas most often exposed to the sun, such as the arms and face.
Genetics play a role in how prone you are to developing freckles when exposed to UV light. Those with fairer features are more likely to develop them because these people have less melanin, which reflects and absorbs UV rays to protect the skin from sun damage.
Although freckles are the skin’s normal response to sun exposure, and usually harmless, some people find them unsightly and want them removed. Our freckle treatment in Melbourne utilises laser photo rejuvenation to help you achieve this in a safe, effective and non-invasive way.
Laser photo rejuvenation uses laser light in order to achieve freckle removal. This is a series of gentle pulses of light energy that target the pigmentation in skin. The melanin absorbs and is heated up by the light, causing the particles of melanin to break up into smaller particles which are removed by the body as natural waste within around 4-7 days.
Yes, a laser freckle removal treatment can permanently remove existing freckles. However, it can be possible for new freckles to appear in a treated area. To avoid freckles from reoccurring, it’s recommend that you take steps to protect your skin from the sun after treatment.
