The Brazil in recent decades, has been expanding the areas of training and professional experience in top level and, among them, there are the areas for aesthetic treatments, aesthetic medicine, where the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) does not recognize as a medical specialty, technology in cosmetic and aesthetic (MACHADO et al., 2008).

The pharmacist began to be interested with the area of aesthetics, when he realized that there were common among professions disciplines who work in aesthetics, in the handling of medicines, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, pharmacological action and mechanism works with all routes of administration of drugs, it was then that the Federal Council of Pharmacy (CFF) started a fight in search of legalization of technical responsibility as a pharmacist Aesthete.

Legalization of pharmaceutical Aesthete

According to the judgment of the judicial section of the Federal District, the doctors ' arguments against the resolution 573/2013, which describes the responsibilities of the pharmacist in health, aesthetics do not proceed and the CFF gained the right to act on aesthetics (SOUL .2015).

The Brazilian Federal Constitution is the Supreme law granted to the nation by the sovereign will of the people, through their representatives chosen.

In the year 2015, the CFF acting as supervisory entity of the exercise of liberal professions defined the technical requirements for the Office of the pharmacist in the field of health, increasing the list of such techniques and therapeutic resources used by pharmacists in health establishment aesthetics according to resolution No. 616, of 25 November 2015.

The resolution considers that examples of invasive non-surgical procedures, according to the Federal law that is only 2013 12842/private medical professionals Act the execution and implementation of invasive procedures, which are considered as only the invasion of natural body openings to reach internal organs. Based on that situation was legalized a few more aesthetic activities, like lifting of autosustentação, the application of botulinum toxin, the dermal filler, carboxytherapy, intradermotherapy/Mesotherapy, needling, aesthetic and technical microagulhamento crioterápicas as criolipólíse.

For the trader to become able to carry out aesthetic health has some mandatory requirements:
