Dermal Filler Injections

Dermal Filler Injections enhance facial volume and create a refreshed complexion by attracting water, therefore hydrating, smoothing the skin.  Dermal Fillers consist of a naturally occurring complex sugar that already is present in the skin and other body parts.

This sugar can be depleted from the skin with age and other environmental factors and the dry skin and lines that result from this can be improved and erased through Dermal Filler Injections .

They restore and plump the skin where the sugar is not as rich as leave you with a refreshed and natural complexion.

DermaCare’s Dermal fillers are biosynthetic and of non- animal origin meaning there is no need for a pre test to determine the suitability of your skin.

The difference between massage and myotherapy

Remedial-MassageMany patients at Body Focus Myotherapy are confused about the difference between massage and myotherapy. Simply put, massage is a tool used in myotherapy to alleviate pain, restore function, address the needs of clients with chronic illnesses and accelerate rehabilitation.

Therapeutic massage relieves pain, promotes circulation and works with the body’s own abilities to accelerate healing. It aids in removing toxins from the body, stimulates the immune system and increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients. Massage is safe for women during pregnancy and enhances athletic performance.

It’s effective for those who have developed scar tissue and in an extensive array of chronic diseases. Massage keeps soft tissues flexible, helps maintain a range of motion and improves mobility. It’s an important element in stress management and is effective in addressing depression, anxiety, PMS and migraine headaches.

Clinical myotherapists employ multiple methods and techniques to treat patients. Massage is one technique and others include:

  • Dry needling/trigger point therapy is similar to acupuncture. It’s used to address tense and knotted muscles and neurological conditions. It helps flush toxins, and increases circulation and oxygenation. The techniques reduce pain and swelling, aligns the spine, and addresses dysfunction.
  • Myofascial release loosens the thick tissue surrounding bones and muscles. It helps maintain range of motion, flexibility and improves posture.
  • Heat therapy helps reduce pain, muscle spasms and keeps soft tissues flexible.
  • Cryotherapy utilizes cold to reduce inflammation and treat acute injuries. It reduces blood flow and is beneficial for swollen and bruised areas.
  • TENS therapy/electrotherapy stimulates nerves with low-level electric current to treat acute and chronic conditions. The method relieves pain and helps maintain nerve and soft tissue health.
  • Cupping is a technique in which cups are adhered to the skin through suction or heat to increase blood flow to areas experiencing pain.
  • Spinal mobilisation enhances joint function and benefits the nervous system.
  • Prescription exercise is specially designed movements to strengthen muscles and soft tissue throughout the body. It’s critical for rehabilitation and addressing limited motion associated with chronic conditions that includes arthritis. Clinical Pilates is one form of prescription exercise that is focused on strengthening the core and pelvic floor. It aids in pain relief and enhances stability and balance.

Myotherapists have access to massage and other techniques, all of which can be used as stand-alone therapies or in conjunction with others to create the best outcomes for patients.
