Say Goodby to Skin tags, Milia, Cholestrol deposits,...
Lamprobe or Clinical skin clear technology used at the INSTANT LASER CLINIC is one of the most wanted procedure due to its high efficacy , lack of major side effects or scarring and its instant , great results in virtually 3-5 seconds.
Lamprobe technology was developed by Hubert Lam. It is using radio and high frequency technology to treat minor skin abnormalities, without penetrating the skin’s surface.
Lamprobe simply attract fluids from sebum, cholesterol or blood; drying them out to effectively reduce or remove the skin irregularity.
Treatment time and costs vary depending on the type and size of the skin lesion being treated. Multiple treatments or longer treatment times may be required to effectively reduce the appearance, or remove the irregularity completely without obvious scarring.
Lamprobe ( Clinical skin clear), is professionally designed to offer:
|Milia Removal||Skin Tag Removal||Xanthelesma||Spider Vein Removal||Cherry angioma removal|
|Thread veins removal||Seborrheic Keratosis||Liver spot removal||Wart removal||Fibroma removal|
Skin tags and milia are a common problem most people experience, however you don’t have to live with it.
This treatment is quick and non-invasive with immediate results.
Skin Tag Causes?
What causes skin tags?
*Skin tags are made up of core fibres, ducts, nerve cells, fats cells and a covering.
They can appear on any part of the body but most commonly exist in areas where skin may rub against skin such as:
• Axillae (armpits)
• Under the Breast
• Upper chest or back
Other available options are:
Short wave diathermy is the use of an electrical current to cauterize a variety of skin lesions, from telangiectasias, campbell de morgan spots, millia and cherry hemangiomas. A high frequency, oscillating, alternating current is used at a low voltage which produces heat within the tissue, coagulating blood flow in the vessel or lesion.
Methods used to eliminate lesions are the tapping technique or "dot-dot" method which is tapping the vessel along the length to coagulate it.
A blend current is also used for telangiectasia, which is a mixture of short-wave diathermy current and direct current. When direct current is used it causes a chemical reaction that produces the chemical sodium hydroxide. This method has many benefits such as:
• Sodium hydroxide dissolves the skin upon insertion, resulting in minimal piercing and less scar tissue and no scabbing.
• The moist reaction, as opposed to dry heat dissolves enough coagulated matter around the needle to allow easy removal from the clot and skin, giving effective treatment with less bleeding.
• Because both currents are used, the current can be set lower, which prevents as much dehydration to the clot, resulting in easier needle removal and less skin damage and resultant scar tissue.
• The different angle of insertion required for this technique allows coagulation of a larger segment of capillary. For large areas of hundreds of fine telangiectases, where it is difficult to distinguish individual capillaries giving the skin an overall red appearance, direct current only is useful and is employed in a random fashion over the area using very low settings.
• Facial thread veins: "telangiectasia". These are not broken capillaries, but permanently dilated capillaries. The very thin walls - just one cell thick-of the fine facial capillaries dilate and constrict constantly throughout life, and as we age, they lose their elasticity and the ability to constrict; so can become permanently dilated.
Causes are due to ageing, hereditary factors, pregnancy, and temperature extremes. They are very commonly seen in a maturing "English rose" complexion.
• Campbell de Morgan spots: "cherry angioma", are vascular blemishes where it is not possible to distinguish individual capillaries. They are raised or dome shaped, with an unknown origin. They are mainly found on the trunk or torso and particularly the midriff (back or front) and in the middle-aged and elderly client. Most people aged over 30 have at least one, and they are more common in men.
• Spider naevus: a collective name for vascular and pigmented birthmarks, naevus are a coloured malformation of the skin, resulting from a congenital alteration of pigment or dilation of superficial capillaries.
A spider naevus or telangiectasia angioma is a central, dilated blood vessel with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider, Spider naevus may be found in isolation or gathered together in clumps on such areas as the cheeks, and usually do not develop until adult life, although children can suffer from them.
Certain conditions can make the condition worse, including extreme heat and cold, obesity, pregnancy or stress. Several spider naevus appearing spontaneously is a cause for concern as it could indicate liver disease.
• Skin tags: fibroepithelial polyp/papilloma and filiform warts. A common fibrous skin condition most frequently found on the neck and face, the tags form a single or multiple distributions, being made up of loose fibrous tissue. The colour is often hyper-pigmented, making them more obvious. Skin tags or papilomas are derived from epitherlial cells. They grow resembling a plum on a plum tree and often appear with a neck (like a mushroom) and vary in size from a tiny speck (smaller than a grain of rice) to the size of a large pea or larger. They are viral in nature and, while not infectious, they do seem to spread on individuals. They are commonly found on areas of friction such as axillae and under the breasts.
• Milia: are tiny white lipidepithelium plugs or Syringomas. Their exact cause is unknown, although they are often related to diet with a high cholesterol count, excessive vitamin C, a too-rich moisturising cream; they are also associated with dry skin, which can be acidic. They contain keratin and sometimes get quite hard. They lie superficially under the skin and can be treated very easily.
• Warts: there are various types of warts including flat (plane), raised (common), and verrucas (plantar). They are benign epidermal tumours or epidermal proliferation of viral origin, which are contagious (human papilloma virus) and all can be treated.
Warts can develop individually or in clusters and can spontaneously disappear. The black dot sometimes visible within is capillaries. Flat warts occur mostly on the face, backs of hands and wrists.
Hygiene must be of the highest importance to avoid cross-infection, and if not treated, they may spread.
• Basal cell papilloma, seborrhoeic keratosis and seborrhoeic warts are all a benign proliferation of epidermal cells and are easily treated, although it is advisable to obtain a GP's agreement before treatment.
They become more common with increasing age and are seen as raised, appearing frequently as several lesions on covered body sites. They are also quite common on the face in older people.
They are usually brown because of melanin and so can be mistaken for moles and can be tiny or large (even up to two inches across). The superficial "stuck on" appearance is a helpful diagnosis point.
• Dermtosis papulosa nigra is peculiar to black skin and is a common papula disorder which develops in adolescence. The lesions are historically identical to seborrhoeic keratosis, being smooth, dome-shaped, brown-to --black papules; they are seen mainly on the cheeks, neck and upper chest.
• Moles: hairs from moles can be treated; however, a GP's agreement must be obtained beforehand. Once treatment is started, it is normal for the mole to reduce in size and colour. Hairs in moles are generally deep terminal hairs, usually with a very rich blood and nerve supply to them. Repeat treatments, as with electrical epilation, will be required.
A mole is simply a pigmented growth and appears slightly velvety, but, unlike freckles, have a difference in change and texture to the surrounding skin.
Normal moles are common, small blemishes or growths on the skin that appear in the first few decades of life in almost everyone and are very common. The average young adult has about 25 moles, and the usual appearance is:
Shape: symmetrical round or oval
Border: sharp and well defined
Colour: usually one shade of tan, brown or skin colour
Diameter: usually less than a quarter of an inch
Location: concentrated on sun-exposed skin of the face, trunk, arms and legs
Onset: usually during early childhood through to mid-twenties
Uniformity: most normal moles on the body look very similar,
Any unusual or atypical moles can be markers for an increased risk of melanoma. Any enlargement, variation or irregularity, bleeding, inflammation, elevation, softening or hardening, swelling, crusting, oozing or ulceration or any mole that undergoes a significant change in size, shape or colour or causes symptoms of itching or burning should be treated as suspect. Hairs should not be treated and the client should immediately be referred to an expert.
The name of ‘Cherry Angioma” sounds like something good to eat, but a cherry angioma is actually an accumulation of thin and tiny blood vessels that come to the surface of the skin. These blood vessels unite and form tiny papules which are often visible on people with fair skin.
They usually appear on facial region, legs, abdomen, back and shoulders and can appear at any age but is more frequent on older people and due to their red and noticeable appearance most people prefer to have them removed .
If cherry angioma is bumped against a hard surface it has the high risk of bleeding. They have a very low risk of becoming cancer or malignant but if a large number ofcherry angiomas appear suddenly and develop without other signs, it may indicate an underlying malignancy or undiagnosed skin cancer.
The best and most effective procedure to remove a cherry angioma is through either a simple diathermy procedure which is a combination of high frequency and DC power , high energy dosage of intense pulse light or laser surgery which is effective and causes minimal damage to the surrounding skin.
Cost is based on the size of the treated area. It starts from $60 for treating one small lesion up to $400 for a larger area. Normally a 10 minute procedure can cost anywhere from $250 -$300 per session. Sometimes more than one session is required to fully remove the lesion.
Consultation is necessary to determine the type and safety issues of the lesion being removed. Our cosmetic physician will thoroughly check and asses each lesion individually on a small fee, otherwise a letter from your local GP will suffice. In most cases skin tags are safe to remove and visual assessment and skin check can be performed at the time of consultation.
Biopsy may be taken and sent to pathology for further investigation.
