Freckles: Love Them or Hate Them? Beverly Hills, CA
Skin Care Beverly Hills CA

While the tendency to have freckles is genetic, getting them in the first place is a process that’s triggered by exposure to the sun. They’re more common on fair-skinned people whose skin does not produce enough melanin to protect them from the sun. As a result, dark pigmented spots known as freckles appear.

While some people may see freckles as cute or sexy, others may find them to be embarrassing and want to hide them.

Preventing Freckles

If you’re unhappy with your freckles there are some good tips that can help you prevent them from becoming more prominent. 

Wearing Sunscreen
Wearing an SPF 30 sunscreen will prevent new freckles from forming. Get in the habit of wearing some year-round, even when it’s cloudy.

Protective Clothing
When outdoors, stay covered by wearing a hat, a shirt with long sleeves, and long pants.

Avoid the Sun
Avoid being out in the sun when it’s at its hottest, between the hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Seek shade during this time.

Eliminating Freckles

There are multiple treatments available that can help minimize the appearance of freckles. During your consultation, our Beverly Hills plastic surgeon can help you determine which is the best option for your particular needs.

Chemical Peel
A chemical peel can remove or significantly lighten unwanted freckles by removing surface skin layers.

Lumecca IPL Treatments
Lumecca is a powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) used to eliminate pigmented areas. Freckle reduction can be seen with as little as one treatment.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
