Even if you have great skin, you’re likely to deal with some irregularities at some point or another. LamProbe offers a non-surgical, non-invasive way to treat those pesky skin problems that pop up in life, from milia and skin tags, to broken capillaries, cherry angiomas and more.
LamProbe: What Is It?
LamProbe offers a quick, fairly painless option for removing or treating a variety of skin concerns. The treatment uses two frequency levels to vaporize the moisture found in skin cells. Once the moisture is gone, the treated cells dry up and ultimately fall off so that the issue clears up.
During treatment, the esthetician holds a probe over the area of concern. Each small area is treated for about three to five seconds, and the entire treatment session usually takes no more than 30 minutes. There are four different probe types to choose from depending on a person’s skin type and the type of skin concern.
Recovery after the treatment is quick, and many people are able to return to their regular lives pretty much right away. Some redness might appear at the treatment site, but it typically fades within a few days.
If you have any of the following skin irregularities, you might benefit from treatment with LamProbe:
A skin tag is a benign growth. It often occurs in areas where the skin rubs against itself, such as the armpit, neck, eyelids and under the breasts. Although skin tags are more common in older adults and in people who are overweight or who have diabetes, it’s likely that pretty much anyone can develop a skin tag or two at some point in their lifetime.
Skin tags can be easily removed with LamProbe if a person feels self-conscious about them or if the skin tags are causing irritation or discomfort. If you remove a skin tag or tags, doing so won’t cause more to grow.
Excess oil, dirt, and dead skin cells can all lead to clogged pores. While there are a variety of ways to treat or prevent clogged pores, from cleaning the skin with a Clarisonic brush or exfoliating with a chemical peel, LamProbe offers a quick solution for clogged pores.
Milia are groups of milium cysts, small, white bumps that form on the face and other areas of the body. They develop when keratin or dead skin cells become trapped beneath the skin. Sometimes known as “baby acne,” milia are fairly common in newborns, but they can also develop in adults.
When adults get milia, they can have one of two types. Primary milia are the same as what babies develop. The tiny white bumps form because dead skin cells are trapped beneath the skin. Secondary milia develop as a response to some sort of trauma to the skin, whether caused by an infection, burn or other injury. Sun exposure can also increase a person’s chances of developing milia. In adults, milia can be common in the under eye area.
Methods of treating milia focus on dissolving or otherwise removing the dead skin cells, which is why LamProbe is an effective treatment for them. LamProbe zaps away the moisture in the milia so that the bumps flake away after a few days.
Sometimes called senile angiomas because they tend to develop on people over the age of 30, cherry angiomas are bright red skin growths. They get their bright red color and their name from the fact that they are made up of blood vessels. If scratched or otherwise disturbed, cherry angiomas can bleed easily.
Usually, cherry angiomas aren’t cancerous and are completely benign. They might cause you concern if they bleed easily or if they are on a part of the body is that is plainly visible, such as your hands or face. Although angiomas can be removed by burning, freezing or laser treatment, LamProbe offers the most comfortable and less invasive option for removal.
Sometimes called spider veins because they look like tiny spider webs, broken capillaries form when small blood vessels near the surface of the skin burst and break. If the vessels aren’t able to repair themselves, they leave a red splotch visible on the skin. Broken capillaries are more common in people with fair skin and are more likely to occur in people who spend a considerable amount of time in the sun.
Treatment of broken capillaries focuses on sealing and collapsing the blood vessels so that they ultimately fade from view. Along with LamProbe, other treatments for broken capillaries include lasers and sclerotherapy.
Formally known as xanthelasma, cholesterol deposits under the eyes can develop when you have high levels of triglycerides in your blood stream or high cholesterol in general. Cholesterol deposits near the eyes tend to affect people of Asian or Mediterranean descent more than other ethnicities.
The cholesterol causes small, yellowish bumps to form on the inside corners of the eyelids. While not a health problem, they can be embarrassing and can signal a potential issue, such as high triglycerides or pre-diabetes. Since the growths can get larger over time, many people prefer to treat the deposits sooner, rather than later.
Treatments such as freezing the growths, surgically removing them or dissolving them with an acid all work well. But, those treatments do have a risk of scarring and side effects. In contrast, LamProbe effectively removes the cholesterol deposits without the risks or side effects associated with other treatment methods.
