Depending on your basic skin color, ancestry, history of sun damage, there may be some help.

Long-term treatment with a strong bleach cream might do it. Must be a presciption and you need to have your doctor check your progress.

A chemical skin peel will remove the freckles, most likely, but your end-result skin color will probably be lighter. How will that match with the skin of your neck and elsewhere?

It is a big decision so be sure to study and consult with specialists who have long experience with such issues.
