What is Aesthetics?

Modern aesthetic medicine has witnessed significant advancements, particularly in the last few decades. The advent of innovative technologies, evidence-based approaches, and a deeper understanding of human anatomy have transformed aesthetics into a sophisticated and widely sought-after branch of medical care.

In the pursuit of aesthetics, medical professionals blend scientific knowledge with an artistic approach to reveal and enhance the innate beauty of each individual. The philosophy emphasizes personalized care, understanding that every face is unique and requires a bespoke treatment plan. The goal is to achieve results that are not only transformative but also natural and harmonious.

Aesthetics in medical practice has evolved into a comprehensive discipline that goes beyond surface-level enhancements. It empowers individuals to embrace their natural beauty, addressing concerns and instilling confidence. With a rich history and a contemporary focus on evidence-based practices, aesthetics continues to play a pivotal role in redefining the standards of beauty and well-being.

The Blend Institute is proud to offer the following aesthetic services.

Botox® Cosmetic 

Botox is an extensively researched and FDA-approved treatment that effectively reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Derived from a natural product containing a minute amount of botulinum toxin protein, Botox causes partial paralysis of muscles responsible for "frown lines," providing a smoother appearance. Administered by experienced healthcare professionals, the effects of a single injection can last for 3-4 months without compromising your ability to express emotions.


Xeomin stands out as a uniquely purified option for treating frown lines. Unlike other neurotoxins, Xeomin removes unnecessary proteins, ensuring only the active component is utilized. With over 90% patient satisfaction across a 4-month study, Xeomin has garnered almost 15 years of clinical and real-world experience.

Dermal Filler


Comprising calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in an aqueous gel carrier, Radiesse provides immediate volume and correction. Beyond instant results, it stimulates the body's natural collagen production for a long-lasting effect. Ideal for addressing smile lines, corners of the mouth, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, and chin wrinkles.


A hyaluronic acid-based filler, Juvéderm is injected to add volume to selected facial areas. From lifting cheeks to smoothing nasolabial folds or achieving fuller lips, different Juvéderm fillers cater to diverse needs. Dr. Blend tailors the selection based on your facial skin, and with some labeled "XC" containing a numbing agent, the procedure is comfortable with no downtime.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Vampire Facelift® and Vampire Facial®

Harnessing the healing power of growth factors and nutrients in your blood, these treatments rejuvenate and contour your face. For the Vampire Facial, PRP is isolated and applied through microneedling, stimulating collagen regeneration. The Vampire Facelift combines dermal fillers for immediate lifting and PRP for long-term collagen production, resulting in firm, glowing, and flawless skin.

CynoSure TempSure Envi Treatment

TempSure Envi technology

Heating deep into the skin, this technology regenerates collagen, reducing forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and smile lines.


Rejuvapen NXT® Microneedling

Stimulating collagen production through controlled injuries, Rejuvapen NXT® microneedling, an FDA-cleared device, treats facial wrinkles effectively. Administered by a medical professional, this painless procedure requires little-to-no recovery time, addressing sagging skin, hair loss, stretch marks, scars, and acne.

Additional Treatments

Upneeq® Eye Drops for Low Lying Eye Lids

UPNEEQ® is a prescription eye drop that temporarily improves droopy eyelids, or ptosis, with a single daily dose. While you won’t get the more dramatic results you can expect from eyelid lift surgery, patients see an average of about 1 mm of lift in their upper eyelid after the first use—just enough to make a noticeable difference.

Nutrafol Hair Loss Program for Women and Men

Uniquely formulated for both men and women, Nutrafol harnesses the power of natural ingredients, clinically proven to address the root causes of hair thinning and promote optimal hair health. With a multi-targeted approach, Nutrafol provides daily nutritional support, targeting factors such as stress, hormonal imbalances, and nutritional deficiencies. Elevate your confidence and radiance with Nutrafol, the science-backed solution for comprehensive hair wellness.
