Freckles occur due to excess production of melanin or pigment, whereas moles are a collection of pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. Flat moles can resemble freckles, but they are usually darker in color.
Are freckles dangerous?
Freckles are usually harmless. Please see a qualified dermatologist if you notice any surface changes like crusting, oozing, pain, or burning sensation or if there is a sudden increase in the number of freckles.
Is there a downtime post-laser, and is it painful?
Treatment with the laser is not painful. One might notice redness and mild swelling post-treatment, which usually fade away in a few hours or days, depending on the intensity of the laser used for treatment.
Are the results permanent?
The results of the treatment are permanent, provided there is good sun protection post-treatment. If one doesn’t follow a skincare routine, there is always a chance of new freckles, as it is caused by genetic predisposition and sun exposure.
The doctor will suggest a basic skincare routine of mild cleanser, sunscreen, and moisturizer. One needs to avoid active ingredient creams for at least a week.
