Freckles

Portrait of a curly woman with freckles and naked shoulders.

The sun and sun tanning lights emit ultraviolet rays, which are very harmful to the skin, and their effect is manifested in the form of sun damage. Freckles can arise as a result of the uneven distribution of the melanin pigment in the skin following exposure to the sun. After exposure to sunlight, the epidermal layer thickens, and the melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) produce melanin at increased rates, giving some protection against future sun exposure.

Anyone can be susceptible to sun-damage. People with comparatively fairer skin are more vulnerable to sun damage when compared to people with darker skin. Many studies show that the appearance of freckles could be under some genetic control as well.

Freckles primarily pose no health risk at all. Their treatment is more of a cosmetic concern rather than medical. Intense pulse light technology, quite similar to laser, works exceptionally well in the removal of freckles. A beam of light is pulsed through the new handpiece; this light is absorbed by the pigment and converted into heat. The freckle will initially become dark and raised; after a few days, a scab is formed, which is sloughed off naturally as the skin exfoliates.

Anu has been taking care of me for several years, and I can only say great things about her. She is very professional, keeps detailed histories of her treatments, and offers wise advice about skincare. While other skin clinics crop up everywhere in this part of Mississauga, I doubt you could find a better or more personalized service anywhere in the city. I highly recommend this skin clinic!

I've been working with Anu to find solutions to significant adult acne. This has been a problem all of my life and at Laser Genesis I've found treatments that are truly making a difference. I have hope now that this isn't a problem I've going to have to live with all of my life. Anu understands the acne sufferer and really cares about making a difference in their lives. Thank you Anu!

I had such a great experience! Anu took the time before each laser hair removal session to answer questions and reviewed each stage of the process. She is kind and truly cares about her clients. I am very happy with my results and I would highly recommend Laser Genesis Skin Clinic! Thank you Anu!!

After some very disappointing consultations at other laser clinics, I was blown away at how helpful and informative Anu is! She really takes the time to care for your skin, provide as much information as possible and ensures you feel comfortable before and after every session. Very pleased with my results from Laser Genesis for the IPL facial treatments!

I've been coming here for several months now. Service is impeccable and very friendly. IPL and fractional resurfacing have provided great results so far.
