Cosmetic Medicine

Cosmetic treatment of the face was practiced by ancient physicians, including Galen (129–200), Aulus Cornelius Celsus (25 BC–AD 50), Paul of Aegina (625–690), Aetius (502–575), Oribasius (326–403) and Haly Abbas (930–994). Paul of Aegina recommended a decoction of the ichthyocollo plant for wrinkles, and application of bruised beans for darkness of the face. Aetius gave a long list of applications for facial complaints, and Haly Abbas recommended bitter almonds and wild cucumber applications.
