Freckles

Freckles

Freckles are brownish spots most commonly found on the face, although they can form on any portion of the skin that is exposed to the sun. Infants rarely develop freckles; they are more common in children reaching puberty.

Types

Ephelides: Ephelides are tiny, flat, tan-colored dots that emerge throughout the summer months. Although they can be present on persons of all skin tones, they are more visible on light-skinned people. The usage of sunscreen on a regular basis can stymie their development.

Lentigines: Lentigines are bigger, isolated pigmented areas that are most typically found near the site of past sunburn or sun exposure. They are also known as liver spots or sun spots, and they become darker over time as a result of years of sun exposure. Liver spots, unlike ephelides, are not seasonal and are more common in older adults. Lentigines are occasionally associated with a rare genetic condition.

Causes

Freckles form as a result of sun exposure in persons who are genetically prone. To absorb harmful UV-B rays, an ultraviolet component of sunlight, specialised cells on the skin’s surface called melanocytes increase melanin pigment production. A freckle differs from a mole, which is formed by the concentration of melanocytes in a small area.

Treatments

  • Freckles can be decreased in several methods, including: Consistent application of bleaching creams containing hydroquinone and kojic acid helps lessen freckles over time. They are most effective when used with sun protection.
  • Tretinoin, tazarotene, and adapalene are retinoids that can be used in conjunction with other bleaching lotions.
  • Q Switch Nd Yag lasers are also effective in curing freckles. Another method is photofacials or intense pulsed light treatments.
  • Chemical peels can also be used to lighten freckles and improve uneven pigmentation.
  • Freckles are not a skin condition and are not hazardous in of themselves; but, because affected people lack the optimal amount of pho-protective melanin, they may be more vulnerable to the detrimental effects of UV.

Often, a combination of treatments is required to achieve the desired effects. Furthermore, the same therapy may not be effective for all skin types, and freckles may reappear after repeated UV exposure.
