Ephelides, or more commonly known as freckles, are small brown or tan patches on the skin. These markings are generally found more in individuals with lighter skin, although they are present in all skin types. They appear early in life and tend to increase during the summer months. Patients with freckles usually have a lower concentration of photoprotective melanin and are therefore more susceptible to the harmful effects of radiation from the sun.
A second form of freckles known as sun spots, or liver spots, form after years of sun exposure and do not fade during winter months. We offer painless, effective treatments for the removal of both types of freckles through state-of-the-art laser technology. After the procedure, patients will see immediate improvement at the treated area and ultimately a complete reduction in freckle concentration. With proper protection in the sun, these freckles can remain invisible for long periods of time.
