Black spots on the face due to sunlight exposure. Laser treatment done. Need help in total removal of these spots

I m 20 years old. I have pigmentation on my skin, small black spots ( about 4 or 5 in number on my face), which according to my doctor is due to excessive exposure to sunlight. I have undergone laser procedure to get them removed 5 to 6 times, but there are still very small amounts of the pigmentation left. I use SkinLight cream on the spots every night. Is there a way to completely get rid of these spots and prevent recurrence of them?

Hi,from the description that you have given, it seems you are most probably having freckles. Freckles can be best prevented by avoiding sun exposure and using a good sun screen with Spf more than 40 even if staying indoors. Lasers, chemical peels (glycolic, trichloroacetic acid peels), radiofrequency or even depigmenting creams like the one that you are using can be used to lighten them. There are multiple laser treatments like fraxel, q switched or IPL available for freckles. Consult your dermatologist to know which one would suit you better. Take care.
