Signs & Symptoms
There are always some signs and symptoms associated with any skin condition. Mostly, freckles are harmless but they may be a warning sign of sensitive skin that is highly vulnerable to sunburn and potential skin cancer. Some common symptoms of freckles and blemishes include:
- Changes in the color of skin.
- Changes in the texture of the skin.
- Blotches on the skin.
- 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: Freckles are influenced by genetics also.
- Hormonal changes: Changes in hormones is also one of the causes of freckles and age spots.
- Fair skin: Fair skin is more prone to freckles. There is less melanin in fair skin, therefore on exposure to the sun, the production of melanin is stimulated to absorb UV light.
- Skin conditions: Certain skin conditions like acne can also cause blemishes.
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:
