It is not possible to attribute a certain date to the birth of Aesthetic Medicine. It is certainly known that in ancient times, albeit unwittingly, techniques, which are current today, were used especially for skin care. One for all, Cleopatra who bathed in donkey’s milk, benefited from the properties of lactic acid. This Science, which has its origins in Art, has then increasingly evolved up to the most modern techniques. This book is therefore aimed at connoisseurs of the subject, and it takes into consideration chapters that are not very common but for which it is necessary to learn more thanks to the help of major worldwide experts.
