I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

There is no harm in repeating the process at these intervals.

Blemish Treatment with Q Switch

Standard laser methods used for blemish treatment all over the world create heat in the area, causing burning and thus skin problems. However, this is not the case for Q Switch laser blemish treatment. In other words, while effective results are obtained, tissue damage does not occur. In addition, side effects are negligible and occur rarely.

Before the Q Switch laser blemish treatment to be applied, an anesthetic cream is applied after the skin is completely cleaned. However, there is no such requirement for some patients. Treatment of blemishes on the skin is carried out with 1 or 3 sessions of approximately 15 to 20 minutes. After the application, the skin is completely renewed and the results are seen in approximately 6 months. Wrinkles formed after laser treatment will disappear on their own in a short time and there will be no irritation or scarring in the area.

Thanks to the Q Switch method, age blemishes and sunspots that cannot be treated with cream and that occur due to increased melanocyte can also be treated. In addition to all these, the treatment of acne blemishes and birthmarks is also possible with Q Switch. When stain treatment is performed together with carbon peel, the results will be much more effective.

Tattoos with different colors can be removed quickly and effectively thanks to the 4 different wavelengths of the Q Switch device. With the applied Q Switch laser blemish treatment, the dye under the skin is fragmented and divided into very small pieces. Over time, these dyes are removed from the body through the lymph circulation. In addition, the production of collagen in the body is increased with the Q Switch laser tattoo removal process. Thus, it becomes possible for the body to have a much smoother, younger and healthier appearance.
