SKIN LESION REMOVAL

   REMOVAL OF SKIN LESIONS

The Lam Probe works on the principle of liquids being attracted to heat which is released by various probes. Treatments are very quick (some within a few seconds), and may not even touch the skin's surface. Small skin tags or blood spots disappear immediately and hyperpigmented areas such as liver or "age spots" take only a few seconds.
There is minimal discomfort and healing time is short, from a day or two for skin tags to a few weeks for larger skin abnormalities such as fibromas. Let us briefly examine what these minor skin abnormalities look like:

   SKIN TAGS

They appear as tiny pearl drops attached to the skin's surface and proliferate (multiple) in aging skins, particularly on the skin. They can be removed by simply sealing off the blood very efficiently and quickly.

   COMEDONES AND MILIAS  ACNE

These are known as blackheads and whiteheads. In most cases, blackheads are usually caused by oils in the pores which become oxidized and turn black. Whiteheads are simply plugs of dead cells that have grown over a pore opening.

   BLOOD SPOTS (Hemangiomas)

Blood spots can be small to large concentrations of blood which can be flat or raised and they are commonly found on the neck or decollete area. They are believed to be a disorder of the circulatory system and although young adults may have them, they do not place priorities on their removal until they become older.

   FIBROMAS

Fibromas are non-malignant tumors composed of fibrous tissue that can be flat or raised. Skin tags are considered small fibromas, and the texture and color of large fibromas are different from normal skins because they are darker in color with a more fibrous texture.
