Freckle Treatment/Removal


I'm considering treatment for freckles on my face and have a few questions:
1) Should I stay away from lightening products that contain Hydroquinone or any derivative of it such as bearberry and/or kojic acid? I've read many cancer concerns.
2) Do you have any lightening products that you can recommend to safely lighten the skin? Like Retin-A?
3) Is their any harm in using a combination of lightening products with self tanners containing DHA? I'm trying to lose the freckles but not look pasty white if possible.
4) Do you recommend any particular laser treatments to remove freckles? Prefer safest with minor invasiveness.

Thanks in advance!
