Can armpit freckles be removed with laser treatment?Aesthetic Medicine Laser Treatment
Hi! I have freckles on my underarms and upon research, found that it is related to Crowe’s sign disease. I did one laser treatment and the freckles got darker after the treatment. How can these freckles be removed?
Laser treatment is the way to remove this type of unwanted pigmentation. A variety of lasers from Q-switched short pulse, long pulse and even ablative lasers can be useful to remove this. It is also possible for the freckles to darken after the first treatment.
I would recommend you discuss this with the same doctor who did your treatment and understand the various treatment options.

Your skin appears to be quite sensitive and prone to hyper-pigmentation.
You might want to consider Picosecond Lasers for your pigmentation issues as they tend to be gentler on your skin with lower risks of complications.
Please speak to a doctor for more details on treatment options.
Hope that this helps!
