Ruby Laser Cosmetology
The ruby laser is the first working model of a quantum generator. It was designed and launched in 1960 by Theodore Maiman at the Hughes Research Laboratory in Malibu, USA. A prerequisite for the creation of the laser was a series of theoretical and experimental studies on the spectral properties of ruby. Although some scientists, for example N.G. Basov, argued that the properties of ruby would not allow its use as an active element of the laser.
Nevertheless, a ruby laser was created and its ability to emit an intense, very narrow beam of red light of the same wavelength was demonstrated.
At the dawn of aesthetic medicine, the ruby laser became a pioneer to solve many cosmetic flaws. But these were cars with completely different parameters.
The technical characteristics of the QSRL (Q-Switch Ruby Laser) of the new generation SINON ruby laser have exceeded many expectations.
“The Q-switched SINON laser was the most advanced ruby laser I have ever had in my practice. The device is very reliable. In a comparative study with an alexandrite Q-switched laser, the foci of pigmentation resolved faster and more fully with SINON. ”
Mitchel Goldman, M.D., Goldman Butterwick & Associates, Cosmetology and Laser Dermatology, San Diego, USA
“In general, SINON has revived the ruby laser market. The ruby laser functions and works better than ever. The therapy is four times faster compared to old ruby lasers. It takes just a few minutes to process one tattoo. ”
Dr. Bershtein (Bernstein), MD, assistant professor Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA
“In my experience, the QuDerma SINON Q-switched laser is the most advanced of all the ruby lasers I have ever used in my practice. It is possible to achieve higher maneuverability with a large spot size, which makes a ruby Q-switched laser more efficient than others. The device is very reliable. In a comparative study with an alexandrite Q-switched laser, the foci of pigmentation resolved faster and more fully with SINON. ”

A ruby laser with a wavelength of 694 nm, which can best affect the most difficult to remove, dermal pigmentation, is associated with a high degree of absorption to melanin and a low degree of absorption to hemoglobin, which the more traditional 532 and 755 cannot handle with such gentle care and 1064 wavelengths.
The QIN range of SINON II with a pulse duration of only 20 nanoseconds, which was not previously found in any device generating a wavelength of 694 nm, enables the cosmetologist to work with pigmented lesions in the skin at different depths in the photoacoustic exposure mode, with a higher peak power, without the risk of an unpleasant long rehabilitation period and the risk of scarring and hypopigmentation. A diverging beam with a focus located inside the applicator is also used, which eliminates the risk of foci of heating during therapy, and the compactness of the applicator provides a free view of the treatment area with maximum visibility. In addition, there is the possibility of easy connection to cooling devices, which to a greater extent ensures maximum comfort of the procedure.
Unlike the usual photosystems and BBL, where the pulse in the millisecond range and can cause more damage to the surrounding skin when the results are achieved, the possibility of using the pulse in the nanosecond range minimizes heating of the surrounding skin. In addition, a wide range and easy adjustment of the diameter of the working spot makes it possible to even more variety of convenient exposure protocols and soft work with different phototypes and various pigmented skin lesions from epidermal and dermal pigmentation to Ota and Ito nevi.
With regard to the removal of pigment particles of tattoo and permanent makeup, the usual possibilities of a picosecond laser with a pulse duration of 1064 and 532 nm in our clinic are significantly expanded, and for all hitherto not subject to all shades of green, turquoise and sky blue 694 nm will be just a magic wand, especially since for a tattoo there is a special impulse with a continuous uniform distribution of energy over the entire surface of the spot at the time of the impulse, which allows you to work without overlapping, and the joint-to-joint system.
“SINON is very effective and easy to use. Tattoos completely disappear in two to three sessions of therapy. ”
Dr. Waddah Barghouti, Amman, Jordan
“Removing tattoos using a SINON ruby Q-switched laser delivers superior results in all colors. Due to its high power and optimal setting of spot and pulse size, often only a few therapy sessions are required. Natural age spots are removed even faster. “
