Im wanting freckle removal treatment on my face, but they are quite dark, is the treatment effective?


Laser is attracted to the melanin in the freckle, and this allows selective destruction of the freckle. Skin also contains melanin, but to a much lesser degree. Therefore, the darker the freckle and the lighter the skin, the easier it is for laser treatment to work.
