Technically speaking, freckles are pigmented sun spots caused by sun exposure. Not everyone likes their freckles and they may try to cover them with up with makeup (to no avail) or they may try DIY freckle treatment after DIY freckle treatment, often with limited results.
Why You Should Avoid DIY Freckle Treatment
First of all, there are a lot of myths when it comes to DIY freckle treatments, particularly that there are household products, creams and serums that will effectively get rid of freckles. A common DIY treatment for freckles, for example, is lemon juice. However, its effectiveness is largely a myth, as it merely lightens the skin temporarily. You would also have to do it every day, which can take up a lot of time. This is the case for all other types of household products as well.
There are also many different topical products on the market designed to even out and/or lighten the skin tone, from creams to serums. However, there are a couple of problems with them as well. First of all, some of these products contain chemicals that can actually damage the skin and ultimately do much more harm to your skin. This is especially true since you have to apply these creams every day over long periods of time in order to achieve (limited) results. In addition, since freckles are caused by sun damage, removing them with creams and serums is virtually impossible. They may lighten your skin temporarily, but could damage your skin in the process.
The methods above certainly won’t really achieve the results you want. It is actually professional laser freckle treatment that will safely and effectively remove your freckles, which will actually remove them instead of merely lightening them temporarily. Laser is safe and it won’t damage your skin in the process.
Ultimately, you are potentially damaging your skin with DIY freckle treatments and costing yourself a lot of time and money. The cost of those products adds up over time and ends up being much more than the cost of laser. They also won’t deliver great or quick results. If you seriously want to remove your freckles, you are only going to get frustrated with the lack of results through DIY methods.
As you can see, it much safer and more effective to get laser treatment. In fact, in many cases, one laser treatment can remove all of your freckles, depending upon how many you have. Generally, however, the best results will be achieved over a few sessions. Fairview Laser Clinic treats freckles using KTP, Nd Yag and V-Beam lasers. Sessions are quick and virtually pain-free.
