I'd urge you not to: If you use a freckle remover, even from a dermatologist, you risk disfiguring yourself. Freckles are endearing, they're distinctively you, and a majority of your friends probably like them. Ask them. If you want them less prominent, avoid excess sunlight -- wise in any case.

You may be offered laser treatment. This is an option but it may be pricey, and your results may be so-so. Again, please consider leaving them alone.
