Freckles are flat, beige, brown circular spots that typically are the size of the head of a metal nail. The spots are multiple and may develop on sun-exposed skin after repeated exposure to sunlight. These are particularly common in people with red hair and a fair complexion. They may appear on children as young as 1 or 2 years of age. Most freckles are generally uniform in color but can vary somewhat in color -- they may be reddish, yellow, tan, light brown, brown, or black -- but they are basically slightly darker than the surrounding skin. They may become darker and more apparent after sun exposure and lighten in the winter months. Freckles are due to an increase in the amount of dark pigment called melanin and an increase in the total number of pigment-producing cells called melanocytes.
Both the Medlite C6 laser treatment and Sandstone Matrix fractional CO2 laser treatment can remove freckles successfully. If only pigmentation problem is the major concern, the Medlite C6 laser treatment is preferable. When there are more skin problems including freckle, the Sandstone Matrix fractional CO2 laser treatment is a better option. In some cases, both laser treatment modalities could be combined in a personalized treatment plan.
