And laser freckle removal requires a certain amount of power to crush the entire iceberg.
Therefore, it will produce a certain degree of irritation to the skin and form very small wounds. The skin is prone to inflammation such as mild redness and swelling. Pigmentation will appear during the recovery process of inflammation, which is the anti-black phenomenon we see. Called "Pigmentation after inflammation", this is a normal response after laser treatment, without being overly stressed.

Laser freckle removal is the use of high-energy laser beams to act on deep pigmented tissues, break them down, and excrete them out of the body, thereby achieving the effect of removing stains. It can selectively act on different skin tissues, as long as a specific light source is used to ensure that it only has an effect on stains, and does not affect normal skin tissues.
The skin has a powerful regeneration function. The epidermis is composed of multiple cell layers, and the dermis is mainly composed of collagen fibers, reticular fibers, and elastic fibers. Even if we do not undergo any treatment, they are constantly renewing themselves, the cycle is about 28 days.
As we age, our own metabolism will become slower and slower, and the renewal speed will not keep up with the natural loss rate, and improper skin care products will gradually thin the skin and lose its elasticity.
