Freckle Removal London
Most people like freckles and think they are pretty cute. But if you are someone who has a lot of freckles and just doesn’t feel this way it can be very frustrating. If those freckles are unwanted, and you wish them to disappear then the PicoSure or PicoWay lasers are just what you need. You will see visible results after just one treatment.
Freckles are small circular marks on the skin which are darker than the normal skin tone. They can range anywhere from yellow to black with most averaging out at brown. Freckles are also called ephelides, they are caused by the normal melanocyte cells overproducing melanin and they are always affected by the sun.
There is something else that we all commonly call freckles but are technically something different. These are called lentigines and they differ from freckles because they have very clearly defined edges and rather than just more melanin there is actually a higher quantity of melanocyte cells. These are not affected by the sun in any way and are what you would see as more permanent freckles.
It is these lentigines that people most commonly like to get rid of, as there are no lifestyle changes that can be made to minimise them, whereas ephelides (normal freckles) can be avoided by staying out of the sun, wearing a hat or strong sunscreen.
The PicoSure and PicoWay laser treatment is an extremely effective method of removing both types of freckles and leaving the skin clear and smooth. The laser is fired into the freckled area which absorbs it, thus damaging the melanin and breaking it up into small particles. These minute particles then get removed from your body leaving you freckle-free and with the clearer skin that you desire.

- Removes temporary sun caused freckles (ephelides)
- Removes permanent genetic freckles (lentigines)
