options for removing pigmentation can be easy!

Q: I have more freckles than ever after a long summer at the beach – what can I do to get rid of them?

         

  A: What might be adorable as a child often proves less desirable as an adult.  Freckles are brown or black spots that appear on areas of the skin that have reacted to sun exposure by overproducing melanin (a pigment-producing element).  Lightening agents and ablative lasers were a common approach until Intense Pulsed Light™ (IPL).  IPL uses light energy that is calibrated for absorption by the darker pigment areas of the skin (the freckles). In highly focused pulses, IPL selectively targets and removes freckles while preserving the healthy skin. After a few gentle treatments, even the most stubborn freckles simply fade away. Routine daily application of sunscreen (SPF30 or higher) will help prevent recurrence.
