This page will unpack the key differences between AestheticsPro and Pabau so you can decide which solution is right for you.

Main differences between AestheticsPro and Pabau


AestheticsPro is a software solution that caters specifically to medi-aesthetics businesses, offering functionalities like appointment scheduling, client management, point-of-sale (POS), and electronic health records (EHR) in a user-friendly and affordable package.

While AestheticsPro has a user-friendly interface, some everyday tasks can be more complicated than necessary. Rescheduling appointments can become a time-consuming task because you can’t simply drag and drop them, you need to cancel the original appointment and start over. It also has limited integrations options.


Pabau 2 is a modern and super user-friendly practice management system designed specifically for med spas. Packed with features to make your life easier, from easy appointment scheduling to customizable medical forms and advanced reporting, Pabau provides all the tools that meet the unique needs of a clinic.

Despite the fact that the majority of our clients are in the medi-aesthetic industry, our software is also suitable for private practices, wellness centers, cosmetic surgery clinics, skin clinics and many more.

AestheticsPro offers three pricing tiers: Solo, Enterprise, and Enterprise Plus, starting at $150 per month. While AestheticsPro claims all features are included in their Enterprise Plus plan, look closer. Some essential features come with extra charges, making the overall cost potentially higher than expected.

Additional charges are required for features like e-prescribing, marketing, text marketing, reputation management, plus more. This can significantly impact your overall budget, especially if you are a new business or a small to medium team.


Pabau offers a user-based pricing structure with a flat monthly fee. Every team member enjoys access to all features, eliminating hidden costs.  

The only additional costs are entirely optional. These include services like one-off training and data transfer, which are designed to get you off to a great start with Pabau, along with optional added extras such as  SMS fees and Marketing Plus feature. 

This all-in-one approach allows you to avoid the hassle and expense of integrating separate tools, saving you both time and money in the long run.

Feature comparison

Why Choose Pabau Over AestheticsPro AestheticsPro Pabau
Automated recurring staff schedules
Unlike AestheticsPro's manual, day-by-day scheduling, Pabau lets you create staff schedules for the entire week, month, or even further in advance in one go. This automation can save you hours each week compared to manual scheduling in AestheticsPro.
Easy form customization
AestheticsPro offers a variety of form templates, but for anything custom, you'll need development. In Pabau, you can create custom forms in minutes, from consent forms to detailed medical history forms. Pabau empowers you with complete control and drag-and-drop editing for a user-friendly experience.
Effortless lab and pharmacy workflow
Streamline your workflow and simplify patient care with Pabau's integrated lab and pharmacy features. Manage labs directly in the system, send requests, track progress, and notify patients when results are ready. Pabau also lets you connect with any pharmacy and send prescriptions, fostering improved communication.
Seamless integrations
Unlike AestheticsPro's limited integrations (only two!) Pabau has an extensive integration library that includes popular software Xero, Stripe, Healthcode, and more. Pabau streamlines your workflow, allowing you to use all your favourite tools.
Customizable client portal
AestheticsPro has a very limited client portal that might not offer everything that you need. Clients are unable to reschedule appointments themselves, and it lacks the option to verify the payment card information that they provide, risking lost payments if the card is not valid. With Pabau, clients can book, reschedule and cancel apppointments themselves - saving you time.
Built-in review management tool
In Pabau review requests can be linked to every service and sent automatically after an appointment. You can also showcase positive reviews directly on your website to build social proof. On the flip side, in AestheticsPro, review management costs extra.
Advanced reporting & analytics
Pabau provides advanced reporting flexibility. You can analyze key metrics like client spending, leads, and appointments with pre-built templates or create your own custom reports that will suit your specific needs, no need for third-party tools.

2. Peace of mind for you & your patients

Managing a clinic can be already stressful. But having to juggle multiple tools to do it just adds a new level of work to your already busy day, right? AestheticsPro might seem like a good solution at first glance, but limited features can quickly become a burden on your time. Pabau offers everything you need in one user-friendly platform acting as your safety net for a thriving clinic.

Automated features like consent forms, reminders, and medical history management keep you organized, while built-in allergy alerts ensure patient safety. Pabau goes a step further, time-stamped photos together with adding batch numbers to the image mark-ups provide a clear record of each procedure. You can quickly identify and address any product recalls or complaints. All that in one system.

3. Fill your calendar & grow your business

Wave goodbye to endless phone calls and manual reminders! Pabau's user-friendly online booking portal simplifies scheduling for both you and your patients. They can book anytime, anywhere, on any device, ensuring your calendar stays consistently busy.

5. Pabau is truly built for aesthetics, built for you

Pabau is not a basic solution – it's your partner specifically designed for every need of a medi-aesthetic clinic. While AestheticsPro covers the basic needs of a med spa, Pabau is an incredibly feature-rich solution that takes it to another level.

It offers all the features you need: a robust image mark-up tool, the ability to sell packages, and a comprehensive before and after photos tool, which is also built into the system - it doesn't come at an extra cost.
