Ruby Laser Hair Removal Machine

Only really suitable for white skin, the long-term results of Ruby laser hair removal machines are quite well documented, so you can reasonably envisage a long term loss of hair after treatment. The Ruby laser machines are quite old fashioned now so possibly not as effectual as the newer Alexandrite laser hair removal machines.

This laser emits red-colored beam which seeks out the target melanin inside the hair shafts and adjoining hair follicles.
