You may have good results with photofacial treatments.  Expect to have 3-5 treatments spaced one month apart from each other to see results.

Photofacial for freckles

A photofacial or intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment for freckles is a reasonable treatment. It may take anywhere from 2-4 treatments spaced about a month apart to fade and in some cases eliminate your freckles.
