In brief: Medical vs cosmetic

Therapeutics generally connotes the desire to deliver services to treat or cure or alleviate a medical condition whereas aesthetics generally refers to providing cosmetic services, occasionally there may be some overlap between the two as implied with the term cosmeceuticals.
