The LamProbe is a cutting edge tool used to safely and effectively remove blemishes, lesions, growths, and skin irregularities. Using a combination of radio and high frequency currents, the LamProbe can be used to treat milia, skin tags, cholesterol deposits, cherry angiomas, and benign moles. Without breaking the surface of the skin, the LamProbe can quickly fade, diminish, or dry up the unsightly areas on the face and body.
The LamProbe is based on the scientific principle that liquids are attracted to heat. Using a high frequency radio wave current, heat is conducted into a targeted mass of cells, vaporizing their moisture. This will kill the cells of the skin growth, which will then quickly slough off and disappear. The LamProbe is equipped with multiple frequency probes, making treatments easily tailored for each individual patient. The pinpoint-size tip of the probe ensures a precise delivery of energy. *
