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.
LamProbe can eliminate:
1. Skin Tags
2. Cherry Angiomas
3. Sebaceous Hyperplasias
4. Broken Capillaries
5. Clogged Pores
6. Milia (tiny keratin-filled cysts)
7. Cholesterol Deposits around the eyes
8. Other minor skin flaws
Who is a good candidate for the LamProbe?
The ideal candidate for a treatment with the LamProbe will be someone in generally good health, unhappy with minor, benign skin conditions. Both men and women can find excellent results with the procedure. With the choice of four different probes, each LamProbe treatment to safely treat any skin types. At the complimentary consultation appointment, a full skin evaluation will be performed, and Dr. Vitenas will determine if a LamProbe treatment is the right procedure for you.
The LamProbe Procedure:
A treatment with the LamProbe does not require any anesthesia or numbing agents. Your esthetician will begin by placing a small, hand-held probe directly over a predetermined area, to deliver the quick pulse of energy. The process takes from between three and five seconds per treatment spot; patients are normally out of the office in less than 30 minutes. Depending on the area being treated, a repeat LamProbe session may be required. The LamProbe can be combined with complimentary aesthetic procedures.
What areas can benefit from the LamProbe?
The LamProbe can be used to treat spots on the face, neck, torso, arms, legs, etc.
How does the LamProbe work?
The LamProbe is a hand-held device, which is gently placed over the targeted treatment area. A three to five second pulse of high intensity radio frequency is emitted, delivering heat to the layers skin. By drawing in and then vaporizing the moisture within the targeted cells, the skin irregularity will quickly slough off and fade away.
How long does a LamProbe treatment take?
Most LamProbe treatments will take less than half an hour from start to finish.
Am I a good candidate for the LamProbe?
Both men and women can experience excellent results from the LamProbe session. Patients with minor, benign skin growths, and in overall good health, can make an excellent candidate for the procedure.
No, a LamProbe treatment is not painful, although patients report a very fast pinching sensation in the treatment area.
Will anesthesia be used during my LamProbe treatment?
No anesthesia is required during the LamProbe treatment.
There is no downtime associated with a LamProbe session; patients are able to immediately return to their normal activities. Minor redness may initially appear at the treatment site. This should resolve in two to three days.
Generally, since the LamProbe encourages a natural sloughing of dead skin cells, so no visible scarring will result.
Return to work after a LamProbe treatment?
Patients are free to return to work or school immediately after their LamProbe treatment.
Long lasting result?
Benefits from a LamProbe treatment are usually permanent, although new skin growths may continue to appear.
Risks of the LamProbe treatment?
As the LamProbe is noninvasive and completely safe for the skin, making the procedure virtually risk free.
