I liked everything very much, I start with communication with the friendly and professional staff of the clinic, the quality of the services received and finish the living conditions during the transplant. Special thanks to translators Dilara and Ibrahim) I recommend this clinic to everyone)) Мне все очень понравилось, начинаю с общения с дружелюбным и профессиональным персоналом клиники, качества полученных услуг и заканчиваю условий проживания во время пересадки. Особое спасибо переводчикам Диларе и Ибрагиму) Всем рекомендую данную клинику))

Good day to all! Clinic "Adam and Eve" left very warm memories of being in Turkey. The price for a hair transplant includes: transfer from and to the airport, 3-night hotel accommodation (breakfast included), hair transplant consultation, testing, hair transplant procedure itself, lunch at the clinic on the day of surgery, anti-inflammatory pills , a postoperative hair care kit, as well as a daily transfer to the clinic and back for dressing and shampooing. On the last day of your stay in the clinic, a guarantee certificate and a hair care certificate are issued. The clinic staff is very responsive and attentive, especially the clinic coordinator - Dilyara, who was always in touch with me 24/7. In general, they are great fellows, professionals in their field. Perhaps, of course, there are clinics in Istanbul with a higher service, but the Adam and Eve clinic is the best for a reasonable price. Всем доброго дня! Клиника "Адам и Ева" оставила очень тёплые воспоминания о пребывании в Турции. В цену на пересадку волос входит: трансфер с аэропорта и обратно в аэропорт, 3-х суточное проживание в гостинице (завтрак включён), консультация по пересадке волос, сдача анализов, сама процедура пересадки волос, обед в клинике в день операции, таблетки против воспаления, послеоперационной комплект по уходу за волосами, а также ежедневный трансфер в клинику и обратно на перевязку и мытье головы. В последний день пребывания в клинике выдают гарантийный сертификат и памятку по уходу за волосами. Персонал клиники очень отзывчивый и внимательный, особенно координатор клиники - Диляра, которая 24/7 всегда была со мной на связи. В общем они большие молодцы, профессионалы своего дела. Возможно, конечно есть клиники в Стамбуле с более высоким сервисом, но клиника "Адам и Ева" это лучшее за разумные деньги.

Hello everyone. I want to share my experience. In this matter, of course, personal attitude is very important and if you decide to change your life for the better, (and it is), be sure to trust the professionals. In this regard, I was lucky, just such people surrounded me with their care and attention throughout the entire time. The operation was done at the Adam and Havva clinic, which I am very happy because there are highly qualified specialists with rich experience. The clinic provided us with a transfer, (driver Zafer a big hello) and the hotel -Quiet and quite comfortable, p located in the old part of the city, we even managed to take a walk. Greetings and many thanks to Dilara, the curator from the clinic, as well as all the doctors from the Adem & Havva clinic, and success to you. Well and, of course, a special thanks to the girls from Bookimed, Marina and Varvara, thank you, you doing important work, helping people ....

I would like to say a lot about this clinic and staff. If you paint everything, it can take half an hour. Everything is simple - at the highest level! Starting with the guy Maxim, who offered options for clinics, and advised to stay with this friendly driver who, although he does not speak Russian, but always tries to please) the hotel reception deserves a separate review, it’s very friendly, they will always meet and offer alternatives. All the people in the clinic, without exception, are very nice people, not just pretending that they care, but actually worry about each client, pay maximum attention, always stay in touch, lead and talk from A to Z. What can I say if the clinic’s management was looking for us tickets for a basketball game, just because they wanted to help us) thanks to Dinara (translator) for easy and pleasant communication, I can’t list all the names (I have a disgusting memory), but I can say that all people who are there deserve the deepest respect and gratitude!) Thanks to all, without exception, for you more clients. And yet, the Turks are the best) Хотелось бы много чего сказать о этой клинике и персонале. Если расписывать все, то может занять пол часа. Все просто - на высшем уровне! Начиная с парня Максима, который предложил варианты клиник, и посоветовал остановиться на этой, приветливого водителя, который хоть и не разговаривает по русски, но всегда пытается угодить) рецепшен отеля заслуживает отдельного отзыва, очень приветливые, всегда пойдут на встречу и предложат альтернативы. Все люди в клинике без исключения очень приятные люди, не просто делают вид что им не все равно, а на самом деле беспокоятся за каждого клиента, уделяют максимум внимания, остаются всегда на связи, ведут и рассказывают от а до я. Что там говорить, если руководство клиники искало нам билеты на баскетбольный матч, просто потому что хотели нам помочь) спасибо Динаре (переводчице) за легкое и приятное общение, не могу перечислить всех имён (отвратительная память у меня), но могу сказать что все люди которые там находятся заслуживают глубочайшего уважения и благодарности!) Спасибо всем без исключения, по больше вам клиентов. И ещё, турки - лучшие)

I travelled from the UK for my procedure and was instantly made to feel comfortable and ensured about everything. I would like to say thank you to Abdul for being most helpful with anything I was worried about, he made me feel at ease, I could ask him anything! (Really good English) and also to my surgeon Dr Ergin Er, who was lovely and explained things thoroughly to me and made sure I was happy! (Also very good English) the nurses at the hospital were kind and helpful, it was very clean and regularly checked, I can’t fully comment on my surgery results yet as with rhinoplasty it takes a while for the full results, but so far I am very pleased. If you’re hesitating wether to use this clinic, or travel over there’s no need to worry, everything is brilliant! The accommodation I had provided was a 2 minute walk from the hotel, which was also lovely! Thank you to you all.

The medical team is very nice but people should have in mind that only a few nurses speak some English, anyway this is not a real problem. I am happy with my results and the hospital is comfortable, modern and the rooms very clean and spacious. The only thing to improve is that it would be nice to have some follow-up after the surgery is done, specially once you are home.

Everything is alright. Upon arrival at the airport we were met by a transfer, brought to the hotel. The next day, they had already been tested and had surgery. The first night was incomprehensible (after anesthesia), but we overcame it. And then the recovery process began before the removal of the cast, there was everything: the blood from the nose, and the head, and the whole body hurt, there was enough. Great hotel, breakfast is delicious, everything was fine. Elvina’s girlfriend helped us, she’s just fine, she completely helped in everything, told, drove, and looked after us! Even on the 3rd day after the operation, she washed my head because the best was not real. Все просто отлично. По приезду в аэропорт нас встретил трансфер, привезли в отель. На следующий день уже сдали анализы и сделали операцию. Первая ночь была непонятно ( после наркоза ), но мы ее перебороли. А дальше началась процесс восстановления до снятие гипса, было всякое : и кровь с носа, и голова, и все тело болит, всего хватало. Отличный отель, завтраки вкусные, все устраивало. Нам помогала девушка Эльвина, она просто молодец, полностью во всем помогла, рассказала , водила, и ухаживала за нами! Даже на 3й день после операции помыла мне голову, потому что самой лучше было не реально.

Осталась очень довольна, всё прошло как обещали,доктор просто гениальный специалист, персонал, переводчик да и вся программа была очень хорошо организованна,если бы коснулась ещё раз сделать операцию то выбрала только эту клинику.

Kudos for setting up a camp to offer free tests of basic needs at the PUSA Krishi Vigyan Mela 2020. I am hopeful a lot of visitors and residents of PUSA would have taken the benefit. It would have been specially meaningful because most of the visitors were farmers from remote areas in different states.

They are just stolen your money with your open eyes. No matter you done all the tests but still they ask you for all the required test again in the first visit. I Just want to say they're can be cure any problems but they don't wants to do this because of visit charge. Which was very High like 1000 to 1500 per visit...

I recently visited Dr. Castaneda and Cosmed Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico for gynecomastia surgery and lid surgery. This doctor and clinic are top of the line. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, the clinic clean and modern and the doctor top notch. The work performed beats all expectations that I had and the scarring is near invisible only 5 weeks out. Don't be afraid to go here down in Mexico; I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Adriana his assistant was so professional and walked me through the whole procedure and everything that was said was exactly how it went. I am so happy I did my research and found an amazing Plastic Surgeon. Sometimes going to Mexico may seem sketchy but I can assure you these Doctors know what they are doing. There office is so nice. The operating room was also very nice. Thank you Dr. Castaneda love my new body!!!

I had a wonderful experience in May 2019 at Cosmed in Tijuana. The doctors, nurses and facilities are wonderful, comparable to any in the U.S. - and I could not have received better care anywhere! The work that they did was magnificent (surgeon that I followed up with at Kaiser Permanente agreed and said the work was excellent). I felt very safe and very well taken care of during the entire process in Tijuana.

Had an eye injury and advised by Thai friend to go here as they provide good service and speak good English. I booked in which went smoothly, make sure you have your passport. Waited about 40 minutes before I saw doctor, but that's fine. Doctor very efficient and diagnosed corneal abrasion, she even let me take pics of the cut to my iris. Treated and prescribed prophylactic antibiotics. Bill came to 685 Baht, about £17 and this included the prescription charge. Excellent value. I was in and out in about 80 minutes. I would go again.

Clean, speak great English, fast and know there stuff, BUT well known for being several times more expensive than other places. Don't go to RAM unless you have insurance. They are well known for being several times more expensive than other places. I went for a medical certificate (200 baht for a 20 minute doctors appointment) but before hand wanted to know how much to have a small cyst removed. They would not tell me an idea of a price until I saw a doctor (500 baht for 2 minutes to confirm it was a cyst) but he would not do the medical certificate as that was a different department and I would have to pay again around the corner with another doctor 4500 baht for the cyst removal, I walked out just paying for my 2 minutes after another guy told me his quote was 6000 and why didn't we do what we did growing up and use a hot needle and do it ourselves. RAM is well known for taking advantage of westerners but it is cheaper than you are used too if you are American. For me RAM's price was 5 times more than a doctor in New Zealand so I decided to wait until I go there and get my medical procedure done outside of Thailand. If your used to socialize healthcare RAM will shock you. For this extra costs compared to other hospitals in Chiang Mai you do get excellent service, English speaking staff, short wait times and clean surroundings. You NEVER get medicine from there pharmacy and always ask for a prescription to take to any other pharmacy (they like to say you can only get this pill from them, but any pharmacy will give you a cheaper generic version) Not sure why I was stupid enough to go there after living here for 5 years and knowing the reputation. Got the cyst removed at a local clinic and my medical certificate for less than the price of seeing the RAM doctor for 2 minutes. In an emergency RAM is fantastic. I give them 3 stars because they are ripping you off for everyday complaints compared to a normal clinic or another hospital.

I had a rest in Pattaya in March 2018, I decided to go to face cleaning before leaving, I wanted to clean my face from black dots. I found good reviews on the Internet about this clinic and decided to go to it! I arrived at the clinic, a nice secret girl was sitting at the “reception desk”, I started explaining in broken English what I want))) Thai understood that I was Russian and called the Russian consultant and redistributed the phone! I talked with the Russian woman and received all the necessary information: vacuum face cleaning costs 500 baht, if vacuum cleaning does not clean out all the pores, then you will need to use a special needle, this is +300 baht! The cost of my procedure cost me 800 baht. The clinic is clean, everything is neatly done, cosmetologists are nice, the equipment is good! I really liked the procedure itself, it was a bit sick when the needle began to work, but the result is worth it! The face is perfectly clean, without black dots! There is still redness, but I hope that they will pass soon! If you want to receive high-quality and pleasant services, come to HISHA CLINIC !!!

Questions and answers

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure when the extra hairs are cleared away by means of hair follicles destruction with the laser beam. The procedure is among the most common cosmetic services in the world.

What are the kinds of laser ?

There are 3 main types of devices that help get rid of the unwanted hair: 

  • alexandrite — can be of two types: contact and non-contact. This laser is contraindicated to use in the summer and after suntanning to avoid burns.
  • diode — the procedure using this laser is quite painful. Works well with dark hair on fair skin. Cannot be used for hair removal, if you have a suntan because it leads to burns. Also, a diode laser can leave a burn on dark skin. 
  • Nd-YAG (neodymium) — allows specialists to remove small vessels that nourish the follicles, remove dark and light hair. The laser is non-contact and does not contact the skin. The procedure with this type of laser almost does not cause pain.

What is the laser hair removal process?

  • The beam acts on the hair follicle and heats it to a certain temperature
  • the follicle is destroyed and the vessel that feeds the follicle is sealed

Laser hair removal takes 20-30 minutes. After the procedure, the body pushes the follicle out and the hair does not grow. 

But hair cannot be removed forever. Hair grows always and everywhere, but laser hair removal reduces its amount significantly. If you have 100% of hair, then after a course of laser hair removal and a couple of years of support, you will have only 10%

After the procedure, hair grows slowly, becomes thinner, and almost invisible. You can shave undesired hair off and forget about it for a month.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal is completely safe and does not cause side effects if a person follows all recommendations before the procedure. The course of laser hair removal can be conducted at any age, starting at the age of 18. The most common contraindications are pregnancy and breastfeeding, cancer, keloid scars, tattoos, open wounds, and so on.

Does the procedure cause pain and burns?

Burn and pain during laser hair removal are possible if the procedure is carried out by a non-qualified specialist. The most common reasons that can cause a laser burn are:

  • the laser parameters are not correct — before turning on the laser a specialist did not check what power the device was set
  • a fat cream applied to the area where the hair removal is done
  • performing the procedure several times at one and the same place 
  • a burn can possible on the face if a person did not wash off the foundation before the procedure
  • performing laser hair removal with diode and alexandrite lasers on tanned skin.

Does laser hair removal increase the risk of cancer?

Laser hair removal is a completely safe option. The risk of skin cancer increases because of exposure to sunlight without UV protection, especially if there are neoplasms on the skin. Therefore, experienced specialists never affect moles during laser hair removal.

How many procedures are required to get rid of hair completely?

Laser hair removal can be performed on any part of the body, including the face and sensitive area of a deep bikini. The procedure is carried out in a course until the desired result achievement and complete termination of unwanted hair growth. The number of procedures is different for each person because of the individual characteristics of skin and hair. 

What are the advantages of laser hair removal ?

Among the advantages of hair removal with a modern diode laser are: 

  • painlessness
  • high speed
  • highest efficiency 
  • safety.

Is it possible to get laser hair removal in the summer?

It depends on the laser device used in the clinic. Most lasers are really not compatible with ultraviolet radiation and there is a risk of burns and hyperpigmentation. Besides, such lasers are not able to work on tanned skin and fair hair. 

The only device that can be safely used at any time of the year and on the skin of any phototype is a diode laser, which works less aggressively than most lasers. Due to the precise effects on target cells and melanin located in the hair and skin, this type of laser is not able to cause burns and pigmentation.

What should you do before laser hair removal to get the maximum effect without pain?

Before hair removal, a person should refuse to sunbathe 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the procedure and all other types of hair removal except the waxing 4 weeks before the laser procedure.

8 hours before laser hair removal, it is necessary to smoothly shave the skin in the hair removal zone. Laser hair is burned during the procedure, so long hair can leave burns on the skin. If you plan to do the procedure with a neodymium laser, you can sunbathe, but it is advisable to shave your hair two days before the procedure.
