What is Lamprobe and How Can It Help Me?

DCF 1.0While you may have never heard of Lamprobe, it is a highly effective, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a small medical instrument (a probe-like needle) to quickly and efficiently treat skin conditions (i.e. skin tags, cholesterol deposits, age spots, clogged pores, benign moles, fibromas, keratosis, milia/whiteheads, vascular legions, subcutaneous cysts and cherry angiomas).

As a completely cosmetic procedure, women and men of all ages with minor, non-cancerous skin conditions can benefit from a Lamprobe treatment, which is performed on an out-patient, in-office setting. Although this treatment may need to be repeated several times for optimal results, in most cases, a topical anesthesia (numbing agent) is not required, and the entire procedure typically lasts about five seconds per body section. During a Lamprobe treatment, a medical professional uses the probe to seal off blood flow to the treatment area.

How Does it Work?

The theory behind the treatment is quite simple: blood is naturally drawn towards the heat sources emitted from the probe. The heat vaporizes the treatment area cells, killing them instantly and ensuring they never return. The dead cells peel off (chemical peel) leaving healthier, newer skin and no scarring!

Another benefit is the quick recovery time—most Lamprobe patients are able to resume their normal activities within 24 hours and notice a positive change in the treated area within a week. It is important to consult with a trained medical professional (i.e. a board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or a licensed aesthetician) to know for sure if you are a good candidate for this cosmetic enhancement procedure.
