Question:

Im wanting freckles removed from my face, but they are quite darkspots, is the treatment effective on these types of freckles?

Answer:

Darker freckles are actually easier to treat than lighter ones (in the same skin type or person), as the lasers are actually attracted more to the darker freckles due to their higher melanin content. The lasers we typically use for laser freckle removal are the Ruby laser and the Revlite/Medlite lasers.
