can I remove dark freckles, almost moles that aren't raised?

I have some light and dark freckles on my body in different parts and they usually donít bother me because everyone has them, but there are 2 on my face close to my lip that seem to have gotten darker over the years. On my neck I also have about a patch of 4 and I just plain donít like them. This wouldnít be considered mole removal because they arenít technically moles because they are very small and not raised, so how can I make them go away?

Tinycloud,
I think that there are laser procedures that you can look into that either lighten or eradicate the color of a "freckle" all together. Perhaps Google laser freckle removal or call a dermatologist and see if they handle it or if you would have to go to a cosmetic doctor of some sort. I know I have seen the procedure on tv. I don't think it is particulary comfortable but, if it is something you really want, the discomfort may be worth it to you.
I hope I was of some help. I am sorry I couldn't tell you any more about it like the name of it or where you can get it done. But, hopefully I gave you a good start.

Take care!
