Lamprobe | Skin Tag and Lesion Removal
Remove unwanted surface lumps, skin bumps and skin lesions with lamprobe, also known as diathermy. The results are instant with short recovery time. Our system utilises a method known as thermolysis or shortwave or radiofrequency (RF), which emits high frequency (HF) energy. The specially designed lesion probe, itself, does not get hot, only the target skin. This energy is used to precisely heat the target lesion without effecting surrounding tissue, to produce electrocoagulation (heating the target tissue to about 48 degrees). This means the lesion is scraped off while the tissue is cauterised resulting in no bleeding.

See Lamprobe price guide.
With a current Doctors Certificate, moles on the face and body can be shaved down with minimal scarring compared to surgical excision and cryogen therapy. However as only the surface of the mole is removed and not the whole, moles can reappear over time. Also if the mole is discoloured and extends below the skins surface, this discolouration may remain after Lamprobe removal.
$50 | allow 10 minutes
This session is for clients of The Aesthetic Lounge that have had their Lamprobe treatment, however one or several lesions need a minor quick touch up.
Red Vein Treatment
See Lamprobe price guide.
An effective treatment for facial veins, spider naevi and cherry anginomas. Our IPL Colour Correction treatments are the favourable option for facial veins, as they are non invasive with a quick recovery time. However if a vessel is in a difficult to reach area e.g. the inner eye, diathermy is the best option.
Cryo jet cooling ensures minimal skin reaction and no pain, however topical anaesthetic is available:
- Topical Anaesthetic A5 size | $35
Enhance your results, reduce redness and speed up healing with these recovery products:
- Scar Recovery Gel | $14 - $162
- Rescue Plus Balm | $11 - $92.40
Frequently Asked Questions
Many clients are fine with the temporary, localised, hot, stinging sensation. We also provide Cryo-jet cooling, which blasts -30 degree chilled air to numb deep into the tissue to help ease discomfort.
For an additional price, a topical anaesthetic cream may be applied pre treatment to numb the area, this however, is usually only required for lesions around the sensitive eye area. The application of topical Anesthetic will need an additional 20 to 30 minutes.
Some localised redness and swelling will occur and can last up to 48 hours. Micro crusting and darkening of the treated lesion may occur from day 2 to 5, this is only temporary and will naturally exfoliate off the skin. Residual swelling and healing will continue months after your treatment and the skin where the treated lesion was removed will remain pink for up to 4 to 12 weeks.
If you are having additional lesions and areas treated, then Lamprobe can be performed immediately. However if you are after re-treatment or a touch up of a lesion, you will have to wait until the skin completely heals from your previous treatment, this can take up to 4 weeks.
Most people are suited to Lamprobe, including pregnant clients. It is advised for darker skin types to be on a skin lightening cream to prevent any hyperpigmentation forming.
Mole removal and clients with a pacemaker will require a current Doctor's Certificate.
Pregnant and Lactating clients cannot have topical anaesthetic.
