Our Story

Skin + Aesthetics was created out of a desire to bring the highest quality and excellence in aesthetic dermatology to the Upper Cumberland. What started as a dream in 2019 became reality in 2023 when S+A opened in Cookeville’s own Premier Medical Park.

Blakelee Paige Smith, creator of Skin + Aesthetics, found herself growing more and more frustrated with the lack of regulations and the overwhelming gimmicks related to aesthetic dermatology as her career progressed. While she was devoting countless hours to her craft to ensure she was giving her patients her all, she was continuing to see unsafe practices galore-- providers lying about their credentials or holding no credentials but still injecting patients, illegal product from overseas being injected into patients unknowingly, an overall lack of education, and that was just the tip of the iceberg! While she briefly dreamt of opening her own clinic during a time of exasperation in 2019, it wasn't until she was approaching ten years of practice in 2022 that she finally decided to take the leap. In April of 2023, Skin + Aesthetics was born.

From the planning phase to the current day, Blakelee knew she wanted to set herself apart from the standard in the aesthetic dermatology industry. She wanted every patient that walked through her clinic's door to feel that they were given 100% and a personalized experience. No lies, no deceit; just scientifically-backed and proven results. She wanted to rest easy at night knowing that patients were truly cared for and that every aspect of her clinic was not only ran legally, but to a level of excellence. To be a part of the change you wish to see, Blakelee knew that you must practice what you preach and opening Skin + Aesthetics finally gave her the control to truly do that in every aspect. From being able to educate her patients without time constraints to practicing from a truly medical approach, Blakelee chose to build a clinic throwing sales and numbers aside and instead putting all emphasis on the patient. From day one, Blakelee built her practice on three major focuses and those remain the same today: safety, efficacy, and retention. Her goal was to create a difference and it is our hope that all patients are able to see that in each and every visit.
