How Freckle Removal Using Laser Works
Just like with acne, Freckle Removal by laser technique involves getting deeper into the skin. On freckles, dermatologists target the melanin. During the procedure patients thoroughly clean their face, after which a cooling gel is applied on them. It is through this gel that the laser light is applied, bit by bit on the affected areas to ensure success. Post treatment laser cream and sun block is applied after this as the skin is usually very sensitive.
The procedure is a very sensitive one but nonetheless it takes a very short time, usually less than an hour. Since this procedure is very short you can be up and running in quick time, without any problems.
It is important that patients are advised that freckles may not disappear completely after one set of treatment. For better results around four sets of treatments are recommended.
Care After Freckle Removal
Like with every other procedure, care needs to be taken after Freckle Removal treatment. Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and to make good use of recommended sunscreen when out.
It is also recommended that gentle skin products are used after treatment. Use of gentle anti oxidants would also be a perfect idea.
Side Effects of Freckle Removal
Laser techniques are completely safe procedures. There are however common side effects that are likely to be experienced. These are short term and patients should seek medical help should it turn otherwise. They include:
- Swelling and itching: This is common after most laser treatments especially to the skin. This is due to the obvious reason that skin tissues are quite sensitive and laser treatment involves heating. This symptom clears within a couple of days.
- Sensitive skin: The heating during the procedure may make skin more sensitive. Exposure to the sun also increases this sensitivity. Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure especially in the few days post treatment.
- Infection: This is not as common, especially if the procedure is carried out hygienically and carefully. It is however prudent that anti biotic creams is prescribed for the sake of safety.
- Recurrence: This is very common to most patients. Dermatologists recommend more than one laser treatment. Recurrence is also made possible by the fact that freckles are skin deep and some are also genetic and completely getting them off the system may not be possible. Many freckles victims may need frequent treatments over the years.
It is important to note that skin tissues are sensitive and that some freckles may also be warning signs of more serious complications. For this reason patients are advised to see a dermatologist before making the decision of Freckle Removal.
