Q-Switch (Ruby Laser)

Q-Switch (Ruby Laser) offers precise, effective, and minimally discomforting treatment for skin imperfections, with quick results and minimal downtime, suitable for most skin types. Our comprehensive guide will walk you through everything you need to know about the procedure.

What is Q-Switch (Ruby Laser)?

Q-Switch (Ruby Laser) is a 695 nm-wavelength laser that is effective in removing pigmented skin lesions, by emitting short and very high power pulses to eliminate a blue or green tattoo. This is much more effective compared to other Q-Switch laser treatment; very similar to the Nd YAG Laser treatment.

How does the Q-Switch (Ruby Laser) treatment work?

The Q-Switch (Ruby Laser) works by emitting short pulses of high-energy light that are absorbed by the pigment in the skin or tattoo ink. This energy breaks down the pigment into smaller particles, which are then naturally removed by the body’s immune system or eliminated through the skin’s surface. The laser’s short duration and high peak power help minimize damage to surrounding tissue, making it an effective and safe treatment option for various skin concerns.

What are the indications for this treatment?

  1. Tattoo removal (all tattoo colors especially blue and green)
  2. Freckles
  3. Solar lentigines
  4. Birthmarks (CALM, Ota’s nevus)

Q-Switch (Ruby Laser) Procedure

  1. Local anesthesia is applied to the treated area.
  2. Laser light is targeted in the treated area.

Duration will vary from 5 minutes to hours, depending on the treated area.

What are the common complications of this treatment?

Common complications of Q-Switch (Ruby Laser) treatment may include:

  1. Bruising and Redness: These are common after the treatment but typically resolve within a week.
  2. Swelling: Some swelling may occur, especially in the treated area, but it usually subsides within a few days.
  3. Pigment Changes: Temporary or permanent changes in skin color, such as darkening or lightening of the skin, may occur, particularly in individuals with darker skin tones.
  4. Scarring: Although rare, scarring can occur, especially if the treated area is not properly cared for post-treatment or if there is an underlying predisposition to scarring.
  5. Infection: There is a small risk of infection, which can usually be minimized by following proper aftercare instructions.
  6. Pain or Discomfort: Some patients may experience mild to moderate pain or discomfort during or after the procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

It’s important to discuss these potential risks with your healthcare provider before undergoing treatment.

Instructions for patients after undergoing Q-Switch (Ruby Laser) treatment

  1. The treated area should be kept dry at least within the first 24-72 hours after the treatment.
  2. The prescribed antibiotic ointment should be applied to the treated area for 5-7 days.
  3. No make-up should be applied on the face for 5-7 days after the treatment.
