Do you find that flaws in your appearance stand in the way of your confidence?
A non-surgical cosmetic procedure may be the solution you are looking for to improve your self-esteem! Global Healthcare can connect you to Botox treatments, laser treatments, and Restylane treatments to enhance your natural appearance.
What is Botox?
Botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It’s the same toxin that causes a life-threatening type of food poisoning called botulism. Doctors use it in small doses to treat health problems, including: temporary removal of facial wrinkles, severe underarm sweating, cervical dystonia, uncontrollable blinking, and misaligned eyes. Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. Side effects can include pain at the injection site, flu-like symptoms, headache and upset stomach. Injections in the face may also cause temporary drooping eyelids. You should not use Botox if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

What are Laser Treatments?
Laser treatment is a popular non-surgical way to deal with various skin conditions. Laser treatments provide effective lasting results. These treatment sessions take various times and allow you to return to work or daily activities immediately after a session. While some patients may be able to tolerate a laser treatment without the use of anaesthetic, others may find the application of an anaesthetic cream helpful. The anaesthetic cream can provide adequate relief from discomfort during the procedure. Fortunately, the complications of laser hair removal are rare if it's done by an experienced and skilled physician. You should expect a certain degree of pain, swelling and redness after each treatment session.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a temporary injectable that consists of a stabilized hyaluronic acid and a physiological sodium chloride solution. Restylane is a gel that is injected into the skin to add volume to lips and lift wrinkles and folds. Restylane consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already present in your body. Once in the skin, Restylane works by creating volume. Restylane can be used to smooth wrinkles, enhance lips and shape facial contours. The most common areas are the glabella lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (from the bottom of the nose to the corner of the mouth) and the lips, although other sites can also be treated. During treatment, crystal-clear Restylane gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The gel produces volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted and smoothed. The procedure is simple and results are practically instantaneous. To optimize your comfort during the procedure, your physician may anesthetise the treatment area. Restylane dissolves naturally with time, and a follow up treatment will be needed if you want to maintain the results. Restylane, like many non-surgical procedures, does not have to be performed by a plastic surgeon, but care should be taken when choosing a clinic.
