Hello Mayangsari29, Thank you for the question.
Freckles are dark spots on the skin that are usually found in areas of the skin exposed to sunlight. Freckles is a skin condition that is harmless and tends to occur in someone who has light skin color. Freckles are formed due to excessive production of skin pigment (melanin) which is triggered by sun exposure. Apart from exposure to sunlight, heredity can also affect a person experiencing freckles. Not infrequently, this condition interferes with one's appearance. Freckles can be overcome in several ways, namely the use of creams, peels, and laser procedures. To remove freckles can not be done with just one laser action, depending on the dark color of freckles. There is no definite standard on how many laser actions you should take because the amount of laser action you will take also depends on the skin's response to the laser. You can consult further with a dermatologist who performs this laser procedure.
After the laser action, there are some side effects that can arise in the form of reddish skin, itchy skin, and peeling skin. Therefore, after this procedure it is recommended that you avoid sun exposure and use a skin moisturizer. To prevent the formation of new freckles, you are also advised to limit sun exposure and always use sunscreen especially if you are outdoors. Do not hesitate to always discuss with a dermatologist who treats you if you have further questions.
Hopefully this information helps you.
