I first would recommend that you see a board certified dermatologist to get a thorough skin exam done prior to doing any kind of treatment.

The first order of business is to assure yourself that none of the moles / blemishes or freckles are cancerous. After a thorough exam, if everything is normal the vast majority of such skin pigmentations can be removed with 1 to 3 treatment of Broad Band Light (BBL), especially in the 515 frequency. Look BBL up on YouTube and you can see the treatment. It is commonly used on the hands, face, neck and upper chest.
