Ruby laser for Freckle Removal by Dr Somaiye Kadivar

Dr. Somaiye Kadivar demonstrates the use of our ruby laser on our patient Gina.

Shown in the video is the process involved, and before and after pictures. The second video shows the patient’s post-laser recovery process.

The ruby laser, as the name suggests, emits a ruby coloured wavelength of light (694 nanometres).

There are a number of medical lasers, each designed to target different problems. Our Ruby laser page discusses the Sinon Ruby laser.
The ruby laser’s main uses are; tattoo removalpigmentation removal, and permanent hair removal.


Will it hurt?

Topical anaesthesia can be used to numb the area prior to laser treatments. Especially when higher energies are used, such as with tattoo removal, topical anaesthesia is necessary. Without this anaesthesia, laser tattoo removal is said by some to be more painful than the initial tattoo application itself. If appropriate, an injection can be given to numb the area for treatment.
