How Does Laser Freckle Removal Work?
The high energy levels in the laser create a photo-acoustic effect on the melanin in the freckles, shattering the pigment particles and allowing them to be more easily absorbed and removed by the body.
What results can I hope to see?
You’ll see results within 48 hours, and over time, your freckles will either completely disappear or fade significantly.
How long is an individual laser freckle removal treatment?
Treatments can last as little as 15-30 minutes but how long each individual treatment takes depends on the size of the area being treated, larger areas will take longer than smaller ones. We’ll be able to give you a more specific idea at your initial consultation.
What should I expect following a treatment?
Immediately after your treatment, you may notice that your skin is a little red, but this should start to fade within a few hours. Over the next few days, the pigmentation from your freckles will start to rise to the surface of your skin and be shed like normal dead skin.
How many treatments do I need?
Every person needs a different number of treatments, so ask at your consultation how many are recommended for you. The darker the freckles, the more treatments will be required. As the recovery time is so fast, you can be treated as often as once a month.
When can I get back to my normal routine?
There’s no downtime and you won’t need any time off work – in fact, you can go back to your normal day right away! You should avoid sun exposure both before and after your treatment and use a high factor SPF if you do need to go out in sunny weather.
