A topical numbing cream is applied which will take approximately 20 minutes to take effect. Then, the specialist will delicately turn the marker into a freckle with the treatment taking approximately 30 minutes from start to finish.
There is no downtime, however, it will take about two weeks to fully heal. The freckle may appear darker than you are used to for a few days, then will lighten into the desired color within two weeks, fading 20-40%. Please follow after-care instructions.
You may experience peeling (typically noticeable only up close) and fading of the freckle. This is natural and part of the treatment process.
Your freckle will last for up to 5 years, depending on individual circumstances (e.g. skin type, thickness and depth of color chosen, and lifestyle), and will fade gradually and naturally.
