So many of our lovely clients ask the same important question, “What is the difference between Botox and Dermal Fillers?”. We thought we would start a blog to answer some of your most frequently asked questions, client fears/concerns, and important matters we like our clients to know. 

Our philosophy at Therapeutic Aesthetics is to provide enhanced natural facial aesthetics through advanced non-surgical cosmetic techniques using botox injections and dermal filler treatments, as well as enhanced nutrition and hydration with our pharmaceutical grade vitamin infusion therapy. Our team consists of Ada, Advanced Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner and Owner, who has been injecting for years and continues her clinical work at McMaster Children’s Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when not injecting at TA and Nikki, Aesthetic Registered Nurse Injector and Director of Patient Care, who also shares her clinical work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when not injecting our beautiful clients. We differ from some other Medical Spas in that we are still actively practicing in a clinical setting that requires the highest level of expertise in our field.

We focus on your aesthetic and health goals and work with you to achieve them. One of the most frequent client complaints center around having work done elsewhere and feeling like their clinician did not listen to their goals and desires. They leave feeling unhappy and dismissed. We strive to make our clients feel in control of their treatment by offering a free consultation when you book online that allows enough time for us to talk and get to know each other. We are embarking on a long-term journey together and we feel it is so important to get to know you and what you want out of your treatment.

To answer the question surrounding the difference between Botox and Dermal Fillerbotulinum toxin A (Botox being a brand name) is a neuromodulator which blocks the action of nerves on muscles. That means, it is a toxin that blocks our nerves from telling our muscles to contract. Repeated muscle contraction over time is what creates those static lines (wrinkles on our face when at rest). We use botox treatments to target muscles that form wrinkles.  It relaxes the muscles, softening the wrinkle.  It can last anywhere from 3-6 months.  Dermal fillers are injected into the skin to fill in deep or superficial wrinkles, directly softening them.  There are many different types of fillers and each tends to work well in some areas and not so well in others.  A qualified and skilled injector can give you recommendations on this and what product is right for you.  Every individual is unique and the treatment and product should always be tailored to your aesthetic goals. Beware anyone who wants to use the same product in every part of the face as this is never recommended.

At Therapeutic Aesthetics we will always take the time to listen to you and answer any questions we can. You can contact us through our many platforms- emails, Instagram, Facebook, our website. We also have information about our current promotions and party packages on our website- .
