Treatment of blue nevi with the Q-switched ruby laser.

The common blue nevus is a benign, localized collection of dermal melanocytes. To date, removal required excisional surgery to eliminate pigment that usually extends into the reticular dermis. We report the successful long-term elimination of common blue nevi on the nasal skin of two patients whose lesions were treated with the laser emission of 694 nm energy from the Q-switched ruby laser.
