Albeit sunspots and freckles have very close resemblance but there are some characteristics that are very helpful in distinguishing between them. The Sunspots and Freckles Removal at Aesthetiq Skin clinic is possible with advance laser technology and IPL.

Sunspots

The very fundamental reason of the Sunspots is the exposure of the skin to the sun due to the production of excess amount of an ingredient called melanin. After the long duration of sun exposure, the melanin gathers at certain parts of the skin become reason for high concentration of melanin. These spots slowly give dark shade if not cured

There is no harm of these spots to candidates but these spots make you less attractive among the folks. Some people go for the treatment of sunspots because of aesthetic purposes.

Freckles

On other hand freckles are smaller in size than sunspots and they can appear on any part of the body.These are inherited in the children and sometimes become less visible as children grow. The exposure of these spots to sun changes their color dark and continuous exposure of the spots to sun can even make them darker.

The sole cause of the freckles is the accumulation of pigment in skin layer and required level of melanin is not produced by the melanocytes( a material that is responsible for skin pigment) during the winter season when the affected part is exposed to the sun. When the candidates are not in the sun, color of freckles become less prominent because natural process of immune system generate new skin cells that are replaced with old skin cells. Because of this reason freckles fade during the winter season.

A difference between Sunspots and Freckles

The factors on which we can differentiate between the sunspots and freckles are the age of appearance, size and location. If a skin part exposed to the sun for many years and larger spot is prominent at the skin at the middle age, it is sunspot. If a brown and smaller spot appear at skin from childhood and it is more prominent due to sun exposure then it a freckle.

Treatment of Sunspots and Freckles

At Aesthetiq Skin Clinic, we use advance lase for sunspots and freckles removal. A source of laser beam is with adjusted frequency is emerged from handpiece. The laser light is gently applied to the upper layer of the skin with great care and experience. This laser beam target the excess accumulated material melanin that absorbs the light and destroy the melanocytes. During this destruction process heat is produces that is endurable. Usually this laser gliding process remains continue till 20 minutes. When the excess pigment is destroyed, skin starts healing to produce new layer of skin that takes some days theafter process. The cured areas of the skin start generating collagen in 7 to 10 days. Now your skin has restored its natural color that is very helpful in dishing up you a confidence among the folks. Now your personality gives fresh and attractive look.

How Many treatments are required?

Number of sessions depends on the density of the spots and the areas they have covered. Usually 1 to 4 treatments 3 weeks apart are considered enough. Most of the people seem very confident and happy after the first treatment.

IPL Treatment for Sunspots and Freckles Removal

We recommend IPL for the fair skin. In this technique a range of wavelengths of lights is used for Sunspots and Freckles Removal. Because of this focused light, heat is generated to remove the accumulated pigment in the skin layer. Sometimes we use the filters that cut off the wavelength in case of darker skin. 3 to 4 treatments are enough for IPL Treatment for Sunspots and Freckles.

Side Effect

IPL can damage facial hair in case of men. Very temporary heating effects are often felt that cause skin redness and swollen effects.

Aftercares are the same as for Laser treatment for Sunspots and Freckles.
