What are freckles?
Freckles are natural collections of pigmented skin cells. They appear as flat, circular tan or light brown spots on the face, but can form anywhere your skin is exposed to the sun. Skin cells (melanocytes) in freckles contain higher concentrations of melanin, which is a chemical pigment that protects your skin from sunlight. Freckles are generally harmless although some people choose to have them removed.

what causes freckles?
Genetic factors can affect your tendency to develop freckles. People may be born with them; fair-skinned people with red hair are more predisposed to having freckles than other people, as is anyone with fair skin and light-colored eyes. If your parents have freckles, your probably will too.
Exposure to sunlight is another primary factor. When your skin is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, more melanin is produced, which can cause freckles to form or get darker. Sun exposure can also cause freckles to enlarge or, in the case of sunburn, form irregular jagged borders. Some types fade during the winter while UV-induced freckles tend to be permanent.
People with fair skin have less melanin to begin with. Sunlight can increase melanin production, but instead of an even tan, freckles may form because there’s less pigment to go around.
freckle laser treatment
At LDI, our Covina dermatologist can remove freckles using radiofrequency lasers. An alternative to topical bleachers, medication, chemical peels, or microdermabrasion, freckle laser treatment is an effective way to improve your appearance. At first, your freckles will darken and scab up before peeling off and going away.
We offer the following types of laser treatment for freckles:
all skin types & colors
- Otherwise known as an Nd:YAG laser, a 1064nm laser is non-ablative, meaning it does not cause any damage to the surface of the skin. In fact, it doesn’t touch the top layer at all. The laser energy is absorbed by underlying melanin and the heat destroys pigment cells via wave propagation. The lightening effect may not happen right away; as with other treatments, it may take a week or two.
lighter & darker skin
- A variety of pigment colors can be treated with nano and picosecond laser pulses. Nanosecond pulses break down larger areas of pigment, while picosecond pulses treat the smaller, more shallow ones. During short laser pulses, light energy is converted into sound waves that can reach deep into the skin for effective freckle removal.
- A photofacial is delivered with intense pulsed light. It is especially useful on areas of skin regularly exposed to the sun and where there are pigmented spots. Positive results are often seen within a few days of the first freckle removal treatment, but it can take a week or two for the most visible results to take effect.

Went in today for a free consultation at the Covina location, got quoted and started the treatment for my acne and acne scarring the same day. So far i do not have any complaints. The staff were very friendly and the nurse explained everything in great detail...
Dr. Rispler came in and evaluated my face for the treatment that needed to be done for today, I did not find him rude at all. I like how the office gives out samples of the medications, topical creams and face washes instead of purchasing the full size and finding out later it did not react as well with your skin condition. Lastly, The laser and shots are not painful at all.. very tolerable, i am looking forward to my next appointment and great results. Thank you L.D.I.

I started seeing Dr. Rispler a year ago and at first, never believed in his surgery-free approach, but he definitely beat my expectations. He and his staff were very professional, and always listened to my questions. Dr. Rispler planned out the most specific treatment plans, which...
...treat my unique skin type, tone, and color. I am approaching my 50s, so those wrinkles are coming. Thankfully, I now have a dermatologist I can call for treatments without surgery.

A few months ago I had my FREE consultation at Laser and Dermatology Institute. I met with one of the consultants first and thought he is extremely knowledgeable & professional. After I met with the consultant I felt confident to start treatment that same day. Dr. Rispler...
...is one of the smartest dermatologist I’ve ever met. I asked tons of questions and he was very patient with me and answered every question I had. Dr. Rispler explained to me that it would take 6-8 treatments to laser off my facial hair permanently. After the consultation I was super exited to get started. I had my first laser hair removal treatment at the Covina office. A nurse named Teresa did my first treatment she was very gentle. She numbed my face and gave me some protective goggles for my eyes and she explained into detail what she was doing. She zapped my face with the laser a few times and I was done. OMG, I was so surprised that I was done with my first laser treatment so fast. The lasers felt like warm tiny stings on my face but it was virtually painless. I’m looking forward to my future laser treatments.. So far I’m extremely satisfied with Dr. Rispler and his staff. I highly recommend LDI to anyone.
