Dirk Brandl

Keywords: history of minimal invasive aesthetic medicine, philosophy of aesthetic medicine, age related treatment strategies


Looking at aesthetics’ history we are able to detect a clear tendency towards more and more minimal invasive treatment options. Today our new aims are focused on further and more minimal invasive interventions. This movement leads to new challenges: To find a better philosophical approach which is able to reflect the developments and to revise an old fundament of aesthetic philosophy which was based on the improvement and maintenance of a status and not of an aesthetic and continuous supervision of the aging process and therefore age related treatment strategies.
