Hi Nzliv,

You may wish to consider Fraxel re:store, a series of about 4 treatments should help with your hereditary freckles. Fraxel re:pair may be too aggressive of a treatment, although the settings can be lowered to 5 mj to treat only the most superficial skin where the freckles live.

With either treatment it is essential to avoid sun exposure and use sun protection.

Good luck and be well.
