Acne is a common condition that causes blocked pores, pimples, cysts and other lesions on the skin of the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms.

Augmentation mammaplasty (breast enlargement) is performed to increase breast size and/or fix breast asymmetry. Candidates include women who want larger breasts, and those who want to restore the breast volume often lost as a result of pregnancy or significant weight loss.

In fact you can prevent procedures on your skin if you apply cosmeceuticals to your skin effectively!!
All bodies are not made equal! There are many body types in both women and men. Many times we don’t like our body types and want to change one body type to another. It’s a matter of preference and nothing to be ashamed of. Fortunately, many times our body types are dictated by the amount of fat in different parts of the body.
