First, before having any laser freckle removal performed, you should visit a dermatologist determine if any of your spots are precancerous or cancerous. Unusual spots may indicate rare but may be an serious disorders as well as skin cancer, so check with a dermatologist first. If your dermatologist determines the spots to be freckles and not harmful, laser treatment can proceed.

The best thing about freckles is that they are highly treatable with lasers. The treatment usually ends with a highly satisfactory result.

How Freckle Laser Removal Works

A laser, such as a 532nm Nd:YAG KTP Q-Switched laser or Q-Switched Ruby laser, is passed over the area to be treated and the melanin pigment which makes up the freckles is removed by the laser light. Green laser light is particularly effective on brown spots and freckles.

The reason green light works so well at removing brown spots is because melanin pigment is designed to block short wavelengths of light, namely ultraviolet light which is shorter than any visible color of light. We have ultraviolet light, the next longer wavelength is purple then blue, green, yellow, orange, red, and then infrared which is invisible. So shorter wavelengths of light are more strongly picked up by melanin, thus you can use very low energies of green light to treat brown spots.

Does it hurt?

Rarely Does Anyone Complain. Most people find the treatment quite annoying or slightly uncomfortable. It's not uncomfortable enough that a doctor can use topical numbing creams prior to treatment. Therefore Pain varies, usually found that men tend to have lower thresholds for pain than women, however it is very rare if a person is ever complained about the pain of the laser treatment.

Possible Side Effects

One of the problems a person may get is a little bit of crusting on the skin or a little bit of bruising which may last a week to two weeks following the treatment.

"I lost 62 pounds and got my life back!" - Scott G.

Scott came to Atlanta Medical Institute last summer with a desire to lose 50 pounds. He was experiencing chest pains that led him to believe that a heart attack was eminent and that he might not see his son’s eighteenth birthday. He had settled into bad habits included meal skipping, fast food consumption, sedentary living and engaging in what he called his “one hour snack” as the day’s final and only meal. Scott followed his Weight Loss Program and in a little over four months, exceeded his goal and lost 62 pounds. His statement is that he feels like he got his life back and has learned how to manage his eating and enjoy a dynamic exercise routine once again!

Kelly came to Atlanta Medical Institute frustrated with her yo-yo dieting and weighing in at her lifetime high of 194. She had portion control issues, craved carbs and sweets, and frequently skipped meals. She decided to get help and hoped to shed 50 pounds. During her initial month of Personalized Weight Loss, Kelly lost 20 pounds. Her continued Weight Loss efforts allowed her to not only reach her goal, but to exceed it. She recently weighed in at 117 pounds (that’s a 77 pound loss); elated were her accomplishment and feeling like all things are possible!
