IPL (intense pulse light) Therapy
IPL treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that targets the lower layers of skin. It utilizes pulses of light that can improve the appearance of skin and remove the freckles when delivered to the skin at high intensity. Light energy is converted into heat energy which destroys the melanin concentration in the affected area.
It can treat multiple skin problems at one time. It is similar to laser treatment, the only difference is that in this treatment, different wavelengths are delivered in each pulse. It requires no downtime and you can resume your daily routine right after the procedure is completed.
Laser treatment is recognized as the best way to deal with freckles. It works by providing heat to the affected area through laser beams of a certain wavelength. The pigment called melanin is heated to break down into very minute particles so that they can be removed through natural exfoliation. It is a safe and minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t involve any risk or complications.
Your skin will be cleansed and a cooling gel would be applied before the procedure so you don’t suffer from burning sensations or any sort of discomfort. The laser would be delivered to the skin in a controlled manner. A specific cream would be applied afterward to protect the skin.
Chemical peels are based on the exfoliating technique that uses different chemicals in a solution form to peel off the undesirable skin conditions and improve the appearance of skin. The upper layer of the skin will be removed with the peel that takes away the freckles as well. For freckles, both deep and superficial chemical peels are used to produce visible results.
It minimizes the appearance of freckles and improves the overall skin condition. If you go for a superficial chemical peel, you will require multiple repeated sessions to remove freckles. However, a deeper chemical peel would do the job at once. Deep chemical peels require long recovery time.
