The Q-Switch Ruby Laser works to eliminate skin abnormalities, such as pigmented skin lesions, as well as tattoos (especially those that are green or blue in color).
The procedure involves delivering short yet powerful pulses with a wavelength of 695-nm to the target areas, and it is quite similar to the Nd:YAG laser treatment. The ruby laser treatment is also much more effective when compared to alternative Q-Switch procedures.

Bruising or redness in the treated areas may be experienced after treatment, but these effects typically subside in a week or so.
Does the laser remove colored tattoos?
Yes, it does. Depending on the color of the tattoo (red, yellow, orange, purple, or black), varying wavelengths will be used to completely remove them.
Will this procedure be painful?
Although tattoo removal with lasers does cause some mild discomfort, the procedure is not painful. In fact, many patients actually liken it to getting a tattoo done, or being snapped by a small rubber band.
What can I expect after the Q-Switch treatment?
During the procedure, you may notice the treatment areas briefly turning greyish or white as a result of the laser energy being absorbed by your skin tissues. If your skin is particularly pigmented, you might notice some bruises post-treatment together with shallow, crusty blisters. Healing will usually take around 7 to 10 days, during which you may notice the treated area turning pinkish as it blends with the surrounding skin.
There are rare instances in which healing may take a couple of weeks, resulting in the skin being more vulnerable to damage from sun exposure. It typically takes some time for the pigmentation to settle before your skin finally heals and returns to its normal form.
Are there any restrictions to getting the treatment?
The Q-switch laser treatment works well for individuals, both young and old, who would like to treat wrinkles or skin discoloration, or get tattoos removed. It is a very safe procedure, which produces extremely minimal side effects. As such, there are no restrictions or any particular requirements to get the treatment done.
How many treatments are recommended to achieve optimum results?
To achieve maximum benefit from the treatment, it is recommended to attend three to five treatment sessions scheduled two to four weeks apart. This may vary depending on your unique situation and skin condition. Visible results will usually be noticed after about two to three sessions.
