Lentig & Freckles Removal Treatment

Lentig & Freckles Removal Treatment in Amravati

As you get older, you might notice brown or black spots appear on your skin. These spots are especially common on sun-exposed areas like your face and the backs of your hands. They’re called lentigines, or liver spots. It’s called lentigo because the spots can resemble lentils in color.

Causes of Lentig & Freckles Removal Treatment

Exposure to UV radiation can cause lentigo. You’re more likely to get this condition if you:

  • have fair skin.
  • have been exposed to the sun a lot, or have had several sunburns.
  • tan indoors.
  • have had phototherapy or radiation therapy.
  • In other cases, an inherited syndrome can cause lentigines.
  • People of all ages and both genders can get lentigines.


    To prevent lentigo, try to avoid sun exposure, especially during the peak sun hours between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. When you do go outside in the sun, always wear sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection. Also, put on sun-protective clothing and a wide-brimmed hat.
    Lentigo is usually harmless. The spots are noncancerous. Over time, though, you can develop new spots — especially if your skin is exposed to the sun.


    Lentigines are not typically a cause of medical concern, so they don’t need to be treated. However, some may choose to lighten or remove lentigines for aesthetic reasons.
    To lighten or remove lentigines, your dermatologist might recommend one of these treatments:

  • medicines such as bleaching creams containing hydroquinone or retinoids (tretinoin)
  • chemical peels
  • laser or intense pulse light therapy to destroy melanocytes
  • freezing (cryotherapy) to destroy melanocytes
