One bad sunburn may leave large freckle-like spots in it's wake. Brown spots ("liver spots", "age spots", lentigines) on the face, hands, and arms give a false impression of age. These brown spots are often blamed on age, but are due to years of sun damage. All of these types of brown spots disappear with Ruby Laser surgery. In most cases, only one or two treatments are necessary. Ruby laser surgery is not recommended for melasma.     Collagen dallas texas Collagen dallas texas Cosmetic dermatologist dallas Cosmetic dermatologist dallas Collagen dallas Collagen dallas

The light emitted by the Ruby laser is absorbed by the brown or black pigment in the skin. The rapid pulsing of the laser shatters the pigment in age spots and other brown marks, allowing them to disappear or fade significantly. There are many different types of brown marks which can be treated with Ruby laser surgery. The number of treatments required depends specifically on the type of brown mark treated.

A variety of tattoos may be eliminated with Ruby Laser surgery, including professional tattoos, amateur (homemade) tattoos, medical tattoos, and traumatic tattoos. Medical tattoos are sometimes applied for radiation treatment. Traumatic tattoos include pencil lead (graphite) tattoos from a pencil induced wound, or accidental tattoos which occur when material such as gun powder, or carbon-based material from an explosion or abrasion are embedded into the skin. 

The light emitted from the Ruby laser is also absorbed by the ink in tattoos. The Ruby laser shatters the ink into small enough pieces that the body can remove internally from the skin. Several treatments are necessary for most tattoos. Amateur (homemade) tattoos take fewer treatments than professionally applied tattoos. Medical tattoos frequently only require one or two treatments.
