Wikipedia describes aesthetics as Aesthetics, or esthetics (/ɛsˈθɛtɪks, iːs-, æs-/), is a branch of philosophy that deals with the nature of beauty and taste, as well as the philosophy of art (its own area of philosophy that comes out of aesthetics). It examines aesthetic values, often expressed through judgments of taste.
Aesthetics covers both natural and artificial sources of aesthetic experience and judgment. It considers what happens in our minds when we engage with aesthetic objects or environments such as viewing visual art, listening to music, reading poetry, experiencing a play, or exploring nature. The philosophy of art specifically studies how artists imagine, create, and perform works of art, as well as how people use, enjoy, and criticize art. Aesthetics considers why people like some works of art and not others, as well as how art can affect moods or even our beliefs.
The increase in aesthetic and cosmetic procedures today are the result of both men and women seeking options for looking and feeling younger and having the tools to maintain youth. This quest for longevity in both our health, overall wellness and youthful appearance, continues to drive the procedural options from invasive to non-invasive options. Many of us seek youthfulness, yet prefer to avoid major surgical procedures, if there are less invasive ones available.
In a minimally invasive procedure, the medical professional uses techniques that limit the size and quantity of incisions or injections. A minimally invasive procedure is considered safer than open surgery, assisting in quicker recovery times for patients.

- Facial aesthetic procedures
