u need to go for radiofrequency or co2 laser
no other medicated cream is effective
continue with sun screen
avoid direct and indirect sun exposure
it has property to reoccur
its not much painful,if u feel more pain then topical anesthesia can be used.

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

The best laser for freckles is Q-switched nd:yag laser of 532nm wave length.
In most cases only one sitting is required.
In the era when lasers were not there radiofrequency was used ,but it does not have good results.
So if you can afford a laser please go the above said one.

BAN A TAN has no good result on freckles,but it is good to use a medicated sunscreen daily.
consult a good dermatologist who is doing a laser practice also to guide you best.
You can also log on to my website for details about freckles.
