Please advise if it's expected for freckles to come back after you get laser treatments?

In brief: Recurrent Freckles

Some persons have genetic tendencies to get freckles.
If you are one of them you can expect that you will likely get them again, especially if you spend much time in the sun. Successful laser treatment may make them less noticeable and less prone to recurrence but not forever banish them. Using Hydoxyquinnone creams and/ or sun screen are the best ways to prevent or minimize this
