Botox is not just used for cosmetics. It has many uses in medicine for therapeutics as well and it was being studied initially for therapeutic uses when the cosmetic effects were observed in clinical trials.


Mechanism varies depending on what is being targeted. This varies from relaxing muscles to decreasing sweat gland activity.

Will my insurance cover this? 

It might! Insurance companies and plans vary so please contact your insurance provider to check. We cannot guarantee coverage. Botox requires a special authorization form for most insurance companies. 

Can I use my health spending or flex account? 

Likely, but you will need to submit a receipt for reimbursement. We cannot necessarily direct bill your insurance company. 

How much does my insurance cover?

This varies again. The cost of the medication is sometimes looked at separately from special authorization fees, doctors and injector/clinic fees so it is best to check. 

I already have my insurance forms approved elsewhere. Can I come to see you? 

Yes! We regularly administer therapeutic botox for patients from specialist and family physician clinics. Our injection fees are typically around $200. 

Can you do my insurance forms for me? 

Currently, we are not doing insurance forms. Your best chance of getting special authorization forms approved is through your family doctor or specialist.

Had the best experience doing Botox and Filler training with Ally! She has excellent bedside manner and is a highly skilled professional! She is exceptional in what she does and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from one of the best in the industry! 🙂

I got to visit the new clinic today and it is so beautiful! I had an appointment with Nicole for the second time for dysport, she was so professional and personable. She answered my questions and helped me plan ahead for my wedding treatments. Would highly recommend them.

I’m extremely shocked at this customer service, I’ve never experienced anything like this, I feel discriminated against, I was charged 300, which is more than the actual procedure for booking an iv twice after speaking with them in the same day and they were willing to change the appointment for me. Honestly this place is racist and I will be speaking to someone to get my money back.

I absolutely love the gals at Aisthetikos. Ally is a true professional and has a wonderful team that offer thorough consultations and consistent results. I’ve had treatments from both Ally and Nicole and have never been disappointed. I recommend the Aisthetikos team all the time.

I booked in for a consult with Cath, and was blown away by her knowledge and kindness in an area I knew little about. Cath made me feel comfortable, gave me tons of information/tips, and ensured that I left post-treatment with all the knowledge and tools to make the treatment last longer and most effectively. I am very pleased with my results, one month later.

I want to write words of gratitude to Nicole! She gave me injections, it didn’t hurt at all and there were no bruises. Thank you very much, it was professional!
Ally and Megan are incredible! Not only are they highly knowledgeable and insightful, but they are meticulous professionals who take their work seriously. I've had asked a million questions and after a free consultation, I was sold on their services and products. My absolute new favourite treatment is the Bella Facial with targeted serums and laser treatment to reduce my acne scars!! Megan walked me through the process and taught me so much about my skin barrier. She is kind and made the process easy and relaxing. My skin is glowing and I feel really confident in my skin care routine!! My skin is in great hands with these two! Thanks, Ally & Megan!

Really appreciated the thorough discussion about my skin and ways that I could treat some of the things I've been dealing with. Ally is very thoughtful and a true professional. I'm a guy that hasn't done any of these types of services before and now I totally get why Aisthetikos has all of the 5 star reviews. Beautiful atmosphere, wonderful technicians, very positive place to be and I just feel so happy being there. A true gem in Calgary!
