How to remove small freckles/moles on my face?
I have 3 small flat freckles on my face above my mouth and to the side of my mouth. I didn't mind them for a long time but one of my managers always points them out and it bothers me quite a lot. They are really small but dark and cannot be covered with makeup because they show through. Is there any way I can get them removed?

Laser will zap it right out. Cost $750 per session for each large freckle or mole. Risk: blistering or sunburn, which can be prevented with the use of sunblock and Aquaphor.
Example from one who had laser surgery to remove freckles:
I had laser surgery to remove my freckles yesterday . . .?
she said it will be sore the first day and boy was it and she said i may have some swelling, well i woke up this morning and the skin under my eyes is swollen so bad that my eyes are almost closed. i took a goodies headache medicine because it says it contains an anti-inflammatory drug, i also have an ice pack on my eyes. What else should i do? Should what i'm already doing help?
Do you know how many freckles, moles or age spots do you have?
The next best solution is to avoid the sun. Those freckles, moles or age spots will only get larger and darker. One example from YA about tanning: "i used to go tanning A LOT, but then started to get more freckles so i stopped haha. "
Sunscreen will not protect you from getting burned.
Sunscreen does not protect you from getting moles or freckles, they will only get darker & bumpier or larger from each exposure from the sun.
Sunscreen will not protect you from skin cancer.
Sunscreen will not protect you if you have allergies, I never thought I had allergies!
Sunscreens also discolor your skin - for ever!
But I had Discoid Lupus caused from the sun. Google it. Took 12 years for mine to almost 'fade'. I don't want any more lupus appearing on my skin, so now I'm more & more into protecting myself. Bullous Pemphegoid is another skin disorder. Google that, too!

Google A Death by Suntan by age 26, Yahoo Shine 3-23-10. In April 2005, while working out at her college gym in Rhode Island, 22-year-old Glenna Kohl detected a hard, golf ball-size lump near her groin. . . . .In high school, Glenna did have an irregular mole removed from her leg. A pathology report identified it as benign, but the surgeon tested it again. The lab had made an error: The mole was an early stage melanoma.
Moles that are the same color as your skin, will become bumpier, not darker, & larger, but they will become as skin tags. Again, don't try to cut them yourself without having seen by a doctor. I've cut mom's skin tags, all 37 of them, and only 2 of them bled. But, I put a Band-aid, and it was fine several hours later. You can prevent getting skin tags, moles, freckles by avoiding the sun @ least 95% of the day. Wear a wide brim hat with no holes, do your errands in the shade, or bring an umbrella, they were invented to protect us from the elements!
