Does Meladerm Lighten Freckles on the Face and Body?

If you have freckles and are not in love with them, you’ll be researching creams and lotions to put on your skin.  So the question is…. does Meladerm really work on freckles or not?

The short answer is yes, it does.  Here is the long answer….

What are Freckles Anyway?

The formation of freckles is triggered by exposure to sunlight. The exposure to UV-B radiation activates melanocytes to increase melanin production, which can cause freckles to become darker and more visible.

Freckles are predominantly found on the face, although they may appear on any skin exposed to the sun, such as arms or shoulders. Heavily distributed concentrations of melanin may cause freckles to multiply and cover an entire area of skin, such as the face. Freckles are rare on infants, and more commonly found on children before puberty. Upon exposure to the sun, freckles will reappear if they have been altered with creams or lasers and not protected from the sun, but do fade with age in some cases.

Freckles are not a skin disorder, but people with freckles generally have a lower concentration of photo protective melanin, and are therefore more susceptible to the harmful effects of UV radiation. It is suggested that people whose skin tends to freckle should avoid overexposure to sun and use sunscreen. Source

How to Use Melederm Effectively for Your Freckles

Many women have found that if you wash and exfoliate before using the Melederm cream that you will see results quicker.  Exfoliation will clean your pours and skin and will allow the cream to penetrate quicker and easier into the skin.  By doing this, you may see results within 2 weeks instead of the expected 6 weeks.

Now everyone’s skin is different and freckles are lighter and darker on different folks as well, so you may see results a bit later or somewhat earlier than other people.

You and the Sun

It’s important to note that you should wear sunscreen when you go outside as it is the sunlight that triggers the freckles to appear or to become darker.  So you don’t want to be out in the sun undoing the work that the meladerm cream has been doing.  You want to limit the amount of sun exposure on your skin in order.

You do need to realize that it will take time for the lightening of the skin to occur.  Depending on your skin tone and how dark your freckles are,  it may take 2-4 months to get the lightened effect that you are happy with.  It takes time, but it is very much worth it.  Just be patient.
