Freckles and Brown Spots

When you accumulate sun exposure over time with the ageing process, freckles and brown spots are inevitable. Learn more about how we can help you with these.

Freckles and brown spots shouldn’t darken your day

Many people are predisposed to developing freckles and brown spots, especially those with light skin who spend extended periods of time in the sun. Whether you’ve noticed a few new spots on your skin or you’ve had them all your life, we can help you achieve the blemish-free skin you’ve been dreaming of. Let’s explore why we develop freckles and brown spots and what lifestyle and treatment options exist to reduce their appearance. 

Freckles and brown spots on the skin can usually be traced back to ultraviolet radiation from the sun, even if they appear well after the sun exposure has occurred.

That said, some people have a genetic predisposition to freckles and develop them more easily than others.

You are genetically more likely to develop freckles if you have existing freckles, your skin is pale (indicating low melanin production), or you have blonde or red hair. 

Most freckles and brown spots are not dangerous to your health. While some people prize their freckles as an aesthetic feature and beauty trend, others wish to have them removed or toned down.

If you notice a freckle or brown spot on your body that has changed in shape, colour, or size, you should Dr Donnellan as it may need to be assessed and potentially removed, if of concern. 

In the interest of preventing other freckles and brown spots from forming, remember to protect your skin from the sun.

Each new freckle or brown spot is a possible sign of cancerous cells forming, so don’t waste time in bringing it to the attention of your doctor. Depending on the underlying cause, you may be advised to have the spot removed.

If you are genetically predisposed to freckles, the treatment is unlikely to be urgent, but if you are unhappy with the appearance of your skin, know that there are treatment options available to help make freckles less pronounced.
