If you expose your buttocks to the sun, they have the potential to freckle. Individuals with fair skin are more likely to freckle, though people with dark skin tones may freckle from repeated sun exposure. The skin’s melanin will only cause freckles when it is reacts with the sun’s rays. If you wish to avoid freckles, you must avoid the sun. To get rid of your buttocks freckles, you have several options. Most require repeated treatment to completely rid your buttocks of freckles.
Things You'll Need
Assess your buttocks freckles. They should be brown in color and relatively small in size. If the spots appear nearly black and large, they are likely moles. Since moles are more difficult to remove than freckles, you’ll need to talk to your dermatologist about removal options such as freezing them or cutting them out of your buttocks.
Apply a bleaching cream to your buttocks. You can find various bleaching and lightening creams at your local beauty supply or drug stores. Most creams contain hydroquinone, which has been shown to effectively fade dark areas of the skin. Use the cream twice daily and you’ll see effects after a few weeks of use.
Use hydroxy acids on your buttocks. Both alpha and beta hydroxy acids help your body to produce new skin cells more rapidly. This means that new, undamaged skin cells will be made more quickly to replace your sun-damaged cells. Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun when you use hydroxy acids so make sure to keep your buttocks protected.
Get laser therapy on your buttocks. Laser treatment has been shown to be the most effective way to get rid of freckles. Your dermatologist will use a laser on your bottom that will break up the freckles’ pigment. Some people find their freckles gone after one session, whereas others may require several sessions to get rid of them. Expect some pain when the laser is used on your skin.
Have a chemical peel on your buttocks. The chemicals used will burn away the top layers of skin. Once the skin heals, it will look fresher and your freckles will be less apparent. Since the skin is burned, you will have discomfort on your buttocks following your peel. This may make sitting a bit uncomfortable for the first couple of days after the procedure.
Consider microdermabrasion. A licensed technician will buff away the top layers of your skin, using a small circular device. You’ll likely need a few sessions to achieve the results you’re after, though your freckles should be less noticeable after even one session.
Try a home remedy to fade your freckles. Lemon juice has long been used to lighten skin tones and treat freckles. Apply fresh lemon juice to your buttocks and allow it to remain there for about 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water and repeat daily. The lemon juice’s acidity helps to lighten the area.
Make sun protection part of your daily routine.
