At Skin + Aesthetics, we understand fully that coming to us with your skin concerns is a private and vulnerable experience and because of that, we believe in a personalized and private experience for each and every patient. We pride ourselves on not being a "cattle-call" type practice, but instead providing an atmosphere where you will feel safe and that all aspects are confidential while we work one-on-one with you to address your concerns. 

When you schedule a visit with Skin + Aesthetics, you will always meet with and be treated directly by our owner and Nurse Practitioner, Blakelee Paige Smith.

BLAKELEE PAIGE SMITH,
MSN, APRN, AGPCNP-BC, NP-C

 Born in Cookeville, Tennessee and raised in Livingston, Tennessee, Blakelee is no stranger to the Upper Cumberland. After graduating from Livingston Academy, Blakelee attended college at Tennessee Technological University, majoring in Psychology before pursuing her nursing career. She moved away from the Cumberland Plateau for 12 years, living in New Orleans, Kansas City, and Nashville before returning home to open her own clinic. During that time, she devoted her time and energy to learning all things dermatology, focusing on both the medical and the cosmetic aspects by working in general dermatology, Mohs surgery, plastic/reconstructive surgery, and as a cosmetic dermatology injector.

Blakelee holds three honors degrees in nursing, two of which she graduated Summa Cum Laude (4.0), and is a proud member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Tennessee Nurse Practitioner Association, Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honors Society, International Society of Plastic and Aesthetic Nurses, Dermatology Nurses’ Association, and also serves as part of the Dermatology Nurse Practice cohort, creating valuable educational materials for dermatology nurses and nurse practitioners alike.

When not learning or working, Blakelee prefers to spend her time with family and friends, in the community volunteering or educating schools on the importance of sun protection, or at the beach (slathered in SPF, of course!).
