There are many kinds of abnormally coloured skin lesions, or naevi, which cannot be successfully treated by using conventional techniques. From experience gained in treating over 6,700 patients in the last 6 years, we find that the visible light ruby and argon lasers are useful in the treatment of naevi. However, to use the laser effectively and safely, both skill and knowledge are necessary so that it can become an additional and effective tool in the management of certain dermatological conditions.
