Eva Carpigo answers the question in her paper:
Beauty at the Service of Humanity. A Review on the Therapeutic Value of Aesthetic Treatments
"Through the presentation of two field cases, the 'psycho-socio-aesthetics' and the 'humanitarian cosmetic surgery', I propose to focus the viewpoint of beauty practitioners who agree in considering aesthetic enhancements as their cathartic objectives to evacuate uneasiness and suffering. In consequence, I argue that aesthetic treatments should be recognised as practices of well-being, since their aim is to enhance user's psychological and social life. Lastly, I affirm the need to value ethics as a complementary skill to individuate appropriate conditions into which practices of beauty-care should take place"
As a Pharmacist, we need to be aware and assist with the medications that very often health-challenged patients seeking out "beauty enhancement" and/or "esthetic recovery," for any number of reasons, are being prescribed for their medical condition. A further exploration is needed in contacting specialized programs in England and France to inquire as their needs to know about which medications and what they may want to know about such treatments. This program, The SocioEsthetican, ongoing seeks out to identify and disuss this sector of pharmacy and all that may be related to such endeavors.
