thank you for your question.

IPL treatments can be very effective for minimizing sunspots and freckles. In addition, long-term skin care with products like Retin-A and hydroquinone can help to keep your skin looking great for years to come. Sun avoidance and daily sunscreen use is important as well. Best of luck!

Laser surgery maybe too drastic for freckles, I would suggest IPL or IPL and Fraxel (Pulse Fraxel). Laser surgery should be considered for patients with really severe sun damage- see video. All the best, DR Davin Lim Laser dermatologist ,Brisbane. Australia.

If you want to get rid of freckles, consider an Intense Pulsed light (IPL) treatment.  May take one or 2 sessions but should work well.
