If you have something such as skin tags, cherry angiomas, cholesterol deposits, clogged pores, you don’t have to live with the discomfort and embarrassment from these minor skin irregularities. Read on to learn more about the technology that gets rid of these cosmetic concerns that often take away from one’s otherwise flawless skin.
The LamProbe is a unique instrument that safely and effectively treats a wide range of minor vascular, sebaceous and fibroma-related skin irregularities that are common in men and women alike. The LamProbe uses radiofrequency technology to treat skin abnormalities without penetrating the surface of the skin. Treatments take seconds and results are immediate. Patients usually only need one treatment to make their skin irregularity disappear.
There is very little discomfort with this treatment, and no anesthesia is required. Patients usually feel a tight pinch to the skin. The LamProbe’s intensity settings can be adjusted easily to accommodate sensitive, thin or aging skin. There is a possibility to slight scabbing with some treatments.
Patients who are considering getting this treatment done to take care of their minor skin irregularities should be free of skin diseases, are in good general health and not pregnant. If you have large, flat pigmented skin lesions or open wounds, you may not be a good candidate for this treatment.
While treatment is quick and results are instantaneous, you will have aftercare for the treatment area to maximize your results. You will want to keep the area clean until the scab falls off to prevent infection or scarring. Do not remove or pick at scabs as that can lead to scarring. You will want to avoid washing the area for at least 24 hours and apply medicated creams as directed. Camouflage makeup can be worn 24 hours after treatment.
Treatment for minor skin irregularities is often an add-on service that patients seek when getting other non-surgical treatments for a more youthful, radiant appearance.
