Others seem to find those tiny red and brown spots on the skin called freckles cute and attractive. It even became a beauty trend in Thailand and other parts of Asia.

Still, not everyone adores having freckles on their faces. In fact, those tiny spots on your face are a sign of skin damage that you got from too much sun exposure!

If you’re one of those people who want to get rid of their freckles, then you’re in luck! There are lots of treatments out there that can remove your freckles completely.
 
Here are the best freckle removal treatments that will surely help you get that perfect clear skin.

What Causes Freckles?

Freckles usually result from exposure to UV B radiation. These can form to any part of your body, but it’s more common on the face and the arms.
 
Exposure to the sun triggers the production of melanin that causes the dark pigment on your skin. These dark pigments absorb the sun’s light to prevent skin damage.
 
However, too much exposure to sunlight causes the build-up of pigment. Thus, creating a brown or red spot called freckles.
 
When you avoid too much sun exposure, your freckles will fade over time.

How to Remove Freckles

There are a lot of ways to remove freckles on your skin. But below are the best freckle removal treatments.

Use Sunscreen

In general, sunscreen won’t help you get rid of freckles. But, it will help you prevent acquiring new ones.
 
Sunscreen should be worn even if it’s not sunny at all. Even if it’s cloudy, your skin is still exposed to UV radiation.

Pro tip: Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going outside. Your sunscreen should also have an SPF of 30 or higher.

Use Freckle Removal Creams

Topical creams can also help you to remove freckles on your skin. These creams often have hydroquinone and vitamin A compounds. Both ingredients help suppress melanin production and lighten the freckles on your skin.

However, some freckle removal creams may cause your skin some side effects such as:

  • Inflammation
  • Dryness
  • Burning
  • Blistering
  • Redness
  • Skin irritation
  • Peeling
  • Sensitivity
  • Try Natural Remedies

Using natural remedies like lemon, apple, honey, etc., won’t cost you any harm when used in moderation. Although none of these are scientifically proven yet, a lot of people swear that these remedies are effective.
 
If you experience any skin irritations, stop using the remedy immediately.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

All the freckle removal treatments mentioned above are effective. Yet, dermatologists can’t argue that the best among all treatments in removing freckles is Laser Skin Resurfacing.

Laser Skin Resurfacing is the latest advancements in cosmetic lasers. It is clinically proven to be the best and safest treatment in reducing pigmentation problems caused by too much sun exposure. This treatment uses thermal energy to precisely penetrate the layers of the skin. The laser breaks the build-up of melanin, which causes the freckles.
 
Results are usually seen right after a single treatment. Although it really depends on the patient’s case. For some with dark freckles, results can be seen after 3 to 5 treatment of laser skin resurfacing.
