Laser Freckle Removal FAQ in Kansas City, MO

Does freckle laser removal hurt?

Laser freckle removal is not a painful procedure, and many of our patients describe the sensation as a rubber band snapping on this skin. However, some patients may benefit from a numbing cream if they have a low tolerance for discomfort.

Can freckles go cancerous?

Freckles are noncancerous, but they may be confused with skin cancer. Excessive sun exposure is a risk factor for both freckles and melanomas. Melanoma is more common in people with fair skin or freckles than in those with dark skin.

What deficiency causes freckles?

The hyperpigmentation related to vitamin B12 deficiency is more common in darker-skinned patients. Few other cases of skin hyperpigmentation due to vitamin B12 deficiency have been reported in the literature. The mechanism of hyperpigmentation is due to increased melanin synthesis rather than a defect in melanin.

Can IPL make brown spots worse?

What are the common side effects of IPL? The most common (and expected) side effect is a darkening of the more superficial brown spots of the areas being treating. This darkening of superficial brown spots will flake off after about 7-14 days.

How does laser freckle removal work?

Laser freckle removal targets the melanin in your skin. It absorbs the pigmentation inside of the freckles. It breaks up the pigments of melanin. The freckles will be removed when the skin naturally exfoliates itself.

How many IPL treatments does it take to get rid of freckles?

You may need three to five IPL treatments before the results are complete. The number of treatments depends on the size of the treatment area, or whether you’re hoping just to fade freckles or want them removed entirely. Multiple treatments are typically spaced out and performed after three to six weeks have passed.

Do freckles get darker after IPL?

Individual pigmented spots may appear to darken immediately following an IPL treatment, but they will fade away over time. Your skin may appear red or slightly swollen immediately after treatment, but these symptoms usually disappear the same or next day. You’ll be able to resume normal activities right away.

What removes freckles permanently?

Can freckles be permanently removed? Laser treatments are designed to permanently remove your freckles. Most people only require one treatment to achieve this, but others may require multiple treatments. However, this procedure does not prevent you from developing more freckles in the future due to sun damaged skin.

What do malignant freckles look like?

The edges are irregular, ragged, notched, or blurred. The color is not the same all over and may include shades of brown or black, sometimes with patches of pink, red, white, or blue. The spot is larger than ¼ inch across – about the size of a pencil eraser – although melanomas can sometimes be smaller than this.

Are my freckles permanent?

Freckles typically fade away with age and even seasons whereas sun spots tend to stick around longer. Because of this, sun spots can require skin treatments for removal. Are They Harmful? Fortunately, neither freckles or sun spots are harmful.

What foods reduce freckles?

Applying raw potato juice or slices of raw potato on dark spots regularly can help in fading out of dark spots, freckles and sun tan. This is due to the presence of vitamin c, potassium and other brightening agents in raw potato helps in removing dark spots and tanning.

What do cancerous freckles look like?

Spot that looks like a new mole, freckle, or age spot, but it looks different from the others on your skin. Spot that has a jagged border, more than one color, and is growing. Dome-shaped growth that feels firm and may look like a sore, which may bleed.
