Freckles and Blemishes are the most common skin pigmentation problem that people face worldwide. These are caused by the overproduction of melanin, the pigmentation that gives the skin its color. Although they can appear on any body part, they affect the exposed areas of the skin more. Freckles only have a cosmetic effect and do not cause any physical symptoms. Some people accept them as a part of their appearance, while others tend not to like them. Luckily, a Freckles and Blemishes Treatment in Dubai can help get rid of them without any cuts or stitches.
Causes Freckles and Blemishes
Freckles and Blemishes are often considered genetic conditions. But there is a long list of other factors as well that can cause this type of skin pigmentation. It is essential to identify their underlying causes before undergoing a Freckles Treatment in Dubai. Some common causes include:
- excessive exposure to the sun
- overproduction of melanin
- hormonal fluctuations
- overly fair complexion
- skin conditions such as allergies and acne
Risk Factors of Freckles and Blemishes
While some people are genetically pre-disposed to pigmentation issues, certain risk factors make a person more prone to Freckles and Blemishes. These include:
- UV rays of the sun
- harsh weather conditions
- excessive dryness
- unhealthy diet
- nutritional deficiencies
Symptoms of Freckles and Blemishes
Also known as age spots; Freckles and Blemishes can be defined as irregular skin pigmentation. They appear as flat, round brown spots of different sizes. Some common symptoms include:
- Changes in skin tone
- Changes in skin texture
- Flat brown blotches of varying sizes
There are numerous options available for Freckles and Blemishes Treatment in Dubai. Some of these are as follows:
Topical Creams can easily treat mild to moderate freckles, mainly if sun damage is the underlying cause. There are a number of over-the-counter as well as prescription creams and serums to lighten the skin complexion. These creams can also make the skin look more even.
Generally, these creams work by inhibiting the production of melanin. As a result, freckles and blemishes reduce, and the skin tone becomes even. However, the chemicals present in these creams can have ill effects on health. Be sure to consult your doctor before using these creams since not all creams work for everyone.
Chemical peeling, also known as chemical exfoliation, is an outpatient procedure that involves shedding the top layer of skin using a chemical solution. The dermatologist will apply a chemical solution containing glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and lactic acid to the treatment area. The skin resurfaces, and the new top layer has a lesser appearance of freckles and blemishes.
There has been a considerable increase in demand for Chemical Peels recently. In most cases, candidates need to repeat the peeling process. Generally, every two sessions are spaced a few weeks apart. Side effects usually are mild, and excellent results can be achieved.
IPL treatment or Intense Pulsed Light therapy can also provide significant improvement in the appearance of age spots. It uses a broad spectrum of light in specific wavelengths to break down pigmentation buildups in the skin. The light is set in a manner to not affect the skin in nearby areas.
The laser treatment used for Freckles and Blemishes Removal in Dubai is Fractional CO2. Fractional CO2 Lasers comprise a highly effective minimally-invasive procedure for permanently eliminating these pesky skin spots.
This skin resurfacing procedure works by removing the damaged top-most layer of skin in a fractionated method. As a result, it reveals smooth and supple skin underneath, free from blemishes and freckles. It achieves this result by boring tiny holes in the skin. With greater collagen and elastin production, the health of the skin in general also improves. However, candidates may need a few treatment sessions to remove the freckles altogether. Usually, 4-6 Fractional CO2 Laser sessions spaced about one to two months apart are enough to achieve desired results.
Fractional CO2 Lasers is the most effective and the most demanded Freckles and Blemishes Treatment in Dubai. Here at Laser Skin Care Clinic, we use DEKA Smartxide Fractional CO2 Laser for fractional Skin Resurfacing and hyperpigmentation removal.
