Freckles are brown spots on the skin that are caused by the sun. They are most common in fair-skinned people, but can affect a multitude of complexion types at different stages of life.
Freckles are highly treatable with lasers. At Cosmetic and Vascular Suite NYC we use the excel V Cutera laser. This laser is effective with freckles because the melanin pigment, which makes up the freckles, absorbs almost every color of laser light. Most patients typically require multiple treatments and are asked to adhere to a sun protection regimen as well.
