Freckle removal is a specialty at Dr Naomi. We have been following the technology for freckle removal for over a decade.
Freckles CAN be removed.
Procedure for freckle removal
Day 1: consultation
Make an appointment to come and see us at Dr Naomi.
At this appointment we will:
- Take your history, including your ancestry, tanning ability, previous freckle removal attempts and their success.
- Examine your face and body
- Discuss information about freckle removal that is important in your case
- Take photographs of your freckles
- Obtain a written consent for the procedure for freckle removal
- Perform test patching over the entire body including upper and lower limbs, chest, back, abdomen and face (we suggest all areas, but this is up to the individual)
Review of test patch and first treatment (this will occur anytime from 2 weeks to 6 weeks depending on the site where we will start the freckle removal)
- Test patch results will be reviewed and the best power for treatment will be decided. (If results aren’t considered good enough by Dr Naomi, a second round of test patching will be provided at no charge to the patient.)
- First treatment will be performed
- Appointment will be made for second treatment
Most areas will require 2 treatments only. However, occasionally 3 treatments may be required

Legs cost depends on size of legs, but typically 1/3 of the lower limbs can be treated at a time and cost is $850: 1/3 of leg is usually ankle to below knee, or below knee to mid thigh, or mid thigh upwards.
The amount of areas that we are able to treat in one session depends on the amount of sun damage. If there is severe sun damage, then it is likely that we can only start with one area. If very mild sun damage (with no background actinic damage) , up to 3 areas may be treated.
As the sessions go on and the freckles and pigmentation are lifted, more areas are able to be treated in one treatment.
Typically, each body area needs 2 treatments. Very occasionally, especially with those with darker skin tones, the area will need 3 treatments (eg face, back and chest are areas where occasionally 3 treatments are required)
