Breast

What are the causes of saggy breasts?

answered Dec 2019

Cooper’s ligaments, the connective tissues that provide perkiness, stretches out as you age and through gravity. They are made of collagen and elastin, which breaks down through time. In addition, certain tissues are gradually reduced by fat as you age. As we know it, fat is much more likely to droop. Since our breasts are made up of fat and not muscles, exercise can only do so much to help.

What causes acne?

answered Dec 2019

Four factors create acne: sebum production, dead skin cells, clogged pores, and bacteria. It can happen anywhere from your face, neck, back to your chest. Excess amount of sebum, combined with dead skin buildup, can often clog pores. The clogged pore created serves as an environment where the bacteria loves. Then when bacteria infects that environment, inflammation occurs.

Hair

What causes hair loss?

answered Dec 2019

The most common cause of hair loss in both men and women is due to androgenetic alopecia.  In this case, genetically predisposed individuals are particularly sensitive to a testosterone derivative called dihydrotestesterone, or DHT.  This hormone retards hair growth and metabolism, slowing causing progressively more hair to die out.

Other causes of hair loss include hormonal conditions (pregnancy, thyroid disorder, polycystic ovary, menopause), anemia, autoimmune disorder, quick weight loss, medications, stress, chemicals, trauma, and local skin diseases.

What causes loose skin?

answered Dec 2019

Many factors contribute to the looseness of our skin: age, sun damage, gravity, genetics, weight changes, slowing of skin cells renewal, and the breaking down of the skin’s underlying structure. There are things that you can do for yourself to prevent or reduce the appearance of loose skin, such as applying sunscreen more often or using the right kind of moisturizer. However, sometimes the best solution is to have treatments done.

Weight Loss

What is excessive weight?

answered Dec 2019

Weight which exceeds the ideal range for a given height is considered as excessive, either overweight or obesity. The ideal way to measure weight is based on the body mass index, or BMI.

When BMI ranges between 25 to 30, one’s weight is considered overweight. When BMI exceeds 30, the weight becomes obesity.

Obesity is a common marker of aging and a major cause of many illnesses. When our body’s composition of fat and muscle deposits becomes imbalanced, we risk developing certain medical conditions and affecting our overall physiological functioning.

At the Advanced Aesthetics Center, we provide a wide range of medically supervised treatments that are not only effective, but are also simple, safe and gentle.
