The history of beauty is as old as mankind itself. Since the beginning, people have have strived to become more attractive and to enhance their beauty. Make-up, hair style, clothes, perfumes were simple attempts to give nature a helping hand. These beauty enhancing “tools” have not been restricted to women alone. In a much more recent development, cosmetic medicine has come along to help us reach our goal of looking attractive and feeling more confident. More recently, cosmetic medicine has become part of a much larger concept: anti-aging. Anti-aging attempts to slow down or even reverse the aging process, with the aim of living longer while maintaining good health. And a healthy inside deserves a healthy and attractive outside.
Our faces function as personal calling cards. They serve to identify us as individuals, but also project our age and our emotional states. Sooner or later, everyone will be confronted with the fact that time is beginning to leave its mark.
