Freckle; Also known as ephelid, they are dark and light brown skin spots 1-3 mm in diameter, mostly seen in the white population with light skin and colored eyes.
WHY DOES FRECK OCCUR?
Freckles usually occur in childhood in genetically predisposed individuals. They tend to fade with age. More in summer, uncontrolled sunbathing causes freckles to recur.
WHY ARE FRIES IMPORTANT?
Fair skin color, red hair and freckles are risk factors for skin cancers called melanoma. Close follow-up of these patients is valuable.
WHEN SHOULD freckles be treated?
Freckles alone are not a cause of discomfort or disease other than visual (aesthetic) discomfort.
WHICH METHODS ARE TREATED FOR freckles?
Let’s start with the most effective system;
– Q switched laser treatment (the most successful treatment)
– Chemical peeling
– Local peeling creams
– Color lightening creams
THINGS TO BE CONSIDERED AFTER FREAK TREATMENT
Since freckle treatment is a kind of spot treatment, it is very valuable for our patients to apply sunscreen 3 times a day after the process, as in all stain treatments. If there are stain lightening creams recommended by the doctor, they should definitely use it.
They should be protected from uncontrolled light damage (sun, computer, mobile phone, etc.). As long as the rules are followed after the treatments, we usually do not visit our freckle patients again,
