Freckles Treatment in Delhi

Freckles are a skin concern characterized by small light-brown or tan spots formed under the skin as a result of the deposit of extra melanin pigment. They mostly develop in areas with frequent sun exposure and are common in people with fair complexion.

What do freckles look like?

Freckles emerge as flat, brown, beige circular multiple spots typically of the size of a head of the metal nail. Most freckles are uniformly colored and are slightly darker than the surrounding skin. They may be yellow, reddish, tan, brown, light brown, or black colored.

Types of Freckles

Freckles can be categorized into two types:

1. Ephelides

Ephelides are caused due to the genetic makeup of an individual. They appear during summer after sun exposure and may disappear during winter. Mostly, they show up on the upper body (arms, neck, and chest), back of the hands, and on the face. Ephelides appear as red, light brown, or dark brown spots that are usually about 1-2mm or bigger and have irregular borders.

2. Solar Lentigines

Solar lentigines (sun spots, age spots, or liver spots) develop during adulthood in the sun-exposed areas. They do not fade and are common in people who are aged 50 years or older. Solar lentigines show up as light yellow to dark brown colored spots with clear borders.  

Skin pigmentation doctor in Delhi Dr. Anu Kapoor offers the best freckles treatment and helps one make their skin look even-toned and radiant.

What causes freckles?

The factors that lead to the development of freckles include:

  • Exposure to excess solar radiation
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Intense emotional stress
  • Intake of different medications
  • Liver disease
  • Some infectious diseases
  • Lack of vitamins and minerals in the body
  • Gall bladder disease

The likelihood of freckles increases if people have pheomelanin produced by the skin which makes them unprotected from UV radiation.

Best Freckles Treatment In Delhi

Freckles are a harmless skin condition but are an aesthetic concern for many people. However, if people are feeling self-conscious about their appearance, then the following treatments offered at CLINIC SKIN ESSENCE can help fade them. These include:

  • Skin Lightening Creams containing hydro- quinone and kojic acid in conjunction with sun protection and avoidance. It is recommended to wear broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreens of SPF 30 or higher and apply the creams only after consulting a dermatologist. Dr. Anu Kapoor, also recommends Vitamin A derivative application in combination to achieve better outcomes.
  • Chemical Peeling- The alpha hydroxyl acids (such as glycolic acid and lactic acid) and trichloroacetic acid peels are very much effective in managing freckles. The chemical peel when applied to the skin causes exfoliation of the target skin layer. The new skin is lighter and brighter in complexion.
  • Cryosurgery- This treatment makes use of liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin and destroy abnormal tissues. But, only some types of freckles respond to it. So, sometimes a combination of treatments is advised to manage freckles.
  • Phototherapy or Intense Pulse Light Therapy- The intense light energy gets absorbed efficiently by the dark pigment present in the freckles and it causes selective photothermolysis of the excess melanin pigments without harming the surrounding normal skin. Multiple sessions of IPL are recommended to achieve better outcomes.
  • Laser Treatment- Different types of laser treatments are offered at CLINIC SKIN ESSENCE that can safely and effectively lighten the freckles. This is a safe and simple method to destroy the excess melanocytes by using heat energy. The lasers also offer anti-aging benefits and make the skin look rejuvenated.
