How to get rid of freckles & other pigmentation

For many people, freckles can be quite cute and endearing. However, most people prefer to have skin without any signs of pigmentation and for them the freckles can greatly undermine their sense of confidence. Freckles typically appear as very small spots of dark brown to light brown pigmentation. They are mostly seen on the face, shoulders, chest and arms. They tend to get more pronounced with greater sun exposure. If you want to get the freckles removed, you should consult a pigmentation removal expert or skin therapist on how to do the same.

What Causes Freckles?

Increased production of melanin may affect certain skin cells and make them appear darker. When skin is exposed to ultraviolet radiation resulting from natural or tanning lights, melanocytes lead to greater production of melanin in the skin cells which leads the skin to appear tanned and darker. Due to this reason it is important to restrict exposure to sun when you have freckles.

Along with freckles, you may have other types of pigmentation problems as well. Some of them are listed below.

  • Freckles and Lentigines that may appear on the face, the neck and the collar
  • Solar Lentigines such as sun spots, liver spots and age spots on the chest, face, shoulders and arms
  • Melasma, a condition caused by certain hormonal changes resulting from pregnancy; it often shows up as brown and dark patches on both sides of the face
  • Café au lait Macules, a type of flat pigmented birthmarks which may appear in any part of the body
