Freckles appear on the skin that has exposure to the suns UV. They are a very common clusters of concentrated melaninized cells which are most easily visible on people with a fair complexion. Freckles are caused by melanocytes that overproduce melanin granules which changes the coloration of the outer skin cells. The over production of melanin is a protective mechanism to prevent our skin from congenital damage.
Freckles are easily removed with laser or IPL Treatments. The darker the macules are, the easier they are to remove as they present superficially in the skin. The lighter the macules are the deeper they present in the skin, this may need a course of treatment.
Ephelides are commonly called Freckles and are a congenital alteration of the pigmentation that are stimulated by exposure to the sun. They are very small and light brown in colour, which is very common to appear in people with red hair or blondes with light-coloured eyes. The number of macules increases with age. They are located mainly on areas visible to the sun, the face, neck, forearms, and legs, covering the shoulders, arms and thighs.
