Laser Freckle and Sun Damage Removal on Chest

Freckles and sun damage on the chest can be treated with laser / IPL. Here is a typical case

The test patch results. Test patching is vital on the chest for several reasons

* To make sure we do no harm: I have seen hypopigmentation and scarring from laser and IPL treatment on the chest. Test patching will limit the size of a problem

* To make sure that we will get a result: Because we have to be more gentle on the chest because of the increased risk for scarring, another possibility is to treat the area to lightly and get no result at all. This is also unacceptable. Test patching will prevent this from occurring as if there is no result, test patching should be repeated

In this picture, the background actinic damage has also been treated in addition to the freckles, this is really important for a great result

Cost of treatment:

Consultation and full body test patching $240

Chest $850 per treatment. See above for results from 1 treatment. However, 2 treatments are recommended to obtain superior results

7 days after chest laser treatment. The freckles, brown spots and sun damage have gone darker and are about to peel off

14 days after 1 treatment. The pigmentation, freckles and brown spots have been removed with the BBL treatment. A second treatment should be performed to improve these results again

BEFORE AND AFTER IMAGES

Before and after photos of 1 treatment of BBL for chest. Result is excellent but second treatment is recommended. The second treatment will be like that second coat of paint which just makes the area more flawless:)

Hello Dr. Naomi and Staff,

My name is William (from California) and I have researched BBL treatment for freckle removal and have found Dr. Naomi's resources very helpful in gaining perspective on specialized treatment for this condition.

I am currently going through treatment, but I am very interested in corresponding with Dr. Naomi (fees ok) in regards to possibly giving an opinion on treating freckles so that I may get the best results possible. (I can send pictures, etc.)

May I know what will be the best way to correspond (phone would be preferred) in order to possibly set up a  cohesive relationship in order to tackle this matter. (I have sent an email to info@drnaomi.com.au).

Kind regards,

William

Hi WIlliam,

Sorry. It's difficult to do this. The main reason is that we cannot be sure that all BBLs are calibrated equally. We have 2 BBLs and we are very careful that ours are calibrated well together. because a 10% difference in output could be the difference between a great result and a complication.

Best of luck with your BBL. Who are you going to in Cali?

Hi Dr Naomi, Ive been following your blog for a while now as I am interested in getting my freckles removed on my face. Could I please ask - is there a best time in the year to receive treatment ie. Winter or summer, considering the amount of sun exposure? Also I don't have freckles on my forehead - only around my nose, cheeks and some spots on my chin - would the price for treatment be different? Thanks!
