Thank you for your question. Freckles are an indication of sun damage and the best way to prevent more from occurring is to avoid sun exposure and to use a SPF 30 sunscreen with zinc oxide. If you see a board certified dermatologist you can possibly use prescription lightening creams or even do laser treatments is you are a candidate.  Be certain to be under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist for the most effective and safe treatment options. I hope this helps.
