Freckles and Blemishes Treatment in Dubai

Skin blemishes refer to any type of discolored or dark spots on the skin. You may be born with some types of skin blemishes, while others can develop as you age. Blemishes like acne, scars, birthmarks, age spots and freckles are just some of the many types of blemishes that can be found on a human’s skin. To those who are not happy with freckles and blemishes, there are a number of freckles and blemishes treatments in Dubai that can diminish and prevent these discoloration marks.

Signs & Symptoms

There are always some signs and symptoms associated with any skin condition. While freckles are mostly harmless, they can indicate a higher sensitivity to the sun, which may increase the risk of sunburn and, in some cases, skin cancer. Some common symptoms of freckles and blemishes include:

  • Changes in skin color or pigmentation.
  • Changes in the texture of the skin.
  • Visible blotches or uneven skin tone.
  • Dryness and roughness.


Some common causes of freckles and blemishes are:

  • Excessive exposure to the sun: You can prevent or fade freckles by reducing sun exposure.
  • Increased melanin: Melanin is the pigment in the skin that is produced by special cells. An increase in melanin can cause freckles or age spots and darkening of the skin.
  • Genetics: Genetic predisposition plays a significant role in the development of freckles.
  • Hormonal changes: Changes in hormones is also one of the causes of freckles and age spots.
  • Fair skin: Individuals with fair skin are more prone to developing freckles due to having less melanin. When exposed to the sun, their skin produces more melanin to absorb UV light, which can lead to freckles.
  • Skin conditions: Certain skin conditions like acne can also cause blemishes.

Treatment Options

Treatment options for freckles and blemishes vary broadly, from simple topical treatments to more advanced and effective IPL therapy. Some common as well as effective freckle and blemishes treatments in Dubai are:

Topical medications

Over-the-counter skin lightening creams containing ingredients like hydroquinone, kojic acid, and tretinoin can help lighten freckles and improve the appearance of blemishes. Hydroquinone, kojic acid and tretinoin (vitamin A acid, Retin A) are the common ingredients that are used in topical medications.

Oral medications

There are various kinds of oral medications that are very effective for certain kinds of freckles. Usually, oral medications are prescribed to deal with freckles caused by hormonal changes.

Laser therapy

Laser treatment, considered safe and minimally invasive, targets melanin in the skin to lighten freckles and improve overall skin appearance. Multiple types of lasers can be used for this purpose. This treatment uses a laser to break down melanin in the skin thereby lightening skin tone and improving the appearance of freckles and blemishes. The treatment requires multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. Alexandrite and ND: YAG lasers are mostly used for treating aging spots.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy, while not a laser treatment, functions similarly by targeting pigmentation to improve the appearance of freckles and blemishes. IPL therapy targets skin pigment and promotes cell renewal for a clearer, more revitalized skin complexion, functioning similarly to laser treatments.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels, which involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, effectively remove the outer damaged layers, reducing the appearance of freckles, age spots, and other blemishes. Chemical peels exfoliate the outer layers of skin, effectively reducing age spots, freckles, and other forms of discoloration for a smoother skin appearance. Also, they help improve the appearance of freckles and make skin clear and smooth gradually. The treatment involves applying chemicals to the skin to remove the topmost damaged layers of the skin revealing healthy and clear skin.


Microdermabrasion treatment, using a stream of tiny particles to exfoliate the skin, effectively treats certain types of freckles by removing the topmost layer of dead skin. It sloughs off the damaged top layers of the skin revealing healthy, bright, and even skin. Stream of tiny particles is used for this purpose. Microdermabrasion requires multiple sessions to gently exfoliate the skin and reveal healthier, more even-toned skin beneath.

Post Treatment Care

You will be able to resume your normal routine immediately after the treatment. However, the treated area will look darker for about 3 to 5 days. Crusting may also occur but it will be temporary. Slight redness and swelling are normal. Following aftercare instructions will help you get rid of these effects quickly. Some common aftercare tips are:

  • Avoid excessive sun exposure for few weeks after surgery.
  • Wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with high UVA and UVB protection when exposed to sunlight, especially after treatment.
  • Avoid using AHA, salicylic, or glycolic acid creams.
  • Apply the prescribed topical creams regularly.
  • Avoid hot showers and harsh skincare products to prevent irritation of the treated areas.

Treatment Benefits

There are many benefits of freckles and blemishes treatment in Dubai. Have a look at some of them:

  • It is a safe, gentle, and minimally invasive treatment.
  • Precise treatment that does not cause any damage to healthy skin cells.
  • Does not cause any severe discomfort or side effects.
  • In addition to superficial improvements, these treatments also stimulate collagen production in the skin, contributing to its overall health and appearance.
  • The treatments typically require no downtime, allowing patients to quickly resume their daily activities while observing immediate improvements.
