SKIN-FOCUSED
SOLUTIONS

What can help?

Laser is the gold-standard technology in treating unwanted freckles, and we use the BBL device from Sciton which achieves spectacular results. It works by focusing extremely bright light into the skin, where it reacts with the melanin pigment and causes it to shatter. Most patients who have issues with pigments also have issues with vascular changes (blood vessels), texture, pores, firmness. One of the reasons that we love BBL so much is that we can combine multiple passes with different treatment parameters to target different issues in a single treatment session, with no down time.

More options

Sometimes, when pigments co-exist with more signs of sun damage – especially texture issues – it can be helpful to add in a Halo laser to the first treatment session which improves the overall skin quality even further. The Halo laser involves more advanced skin regeneration, and has a downtime of around 5 days.

COMMON
QUESTIONS

We use cold air to cool the skin and provide a comforting sensation during the treatment, distracting from any heat generated as a by product of the treatment.

Our bespoke laser treatments mean that we can effectively diminish the appearance of freckles. It is vitally important that you do not come for a treatment if you have tanned skin, either real or fake, or if you have recently used any photosensitising medications (the most common of which are tetracycline antibiotics, a commonly used acne suppressant)

 

Freckles

Following treatment, it is normal for the skin to be a little red, although this has usually calmed by the next day. Treated freckles will be noticeably darker within a few hours; however, these will start to fade a week or so later and will eventually flake off, revealing smooth new skin. It is advisable to keep the complexion clear of makeup and to use a mild skincare routine and a high SPF in the days following.

 

Your doctor will recommend a course of treatment based on your needs, with four weeks between each session. While best results are visible following completion of the course, you should be able to notice a progressive improvement after each session.
