The word “nuance” is defined as a “subtle difference,” and at Nuance Aesthetics, that is our goal. If you are seeking a dramatic makeover, this is not the place. We strive for natural results from modern medical aesthetic treatments that help retain your youthful beauty using treatments that are quick, easy, and affordable. We partner with Allergan®, the market leader in aesthetic treatments to provide results that, as Allergan® puts it, “everyone will notice, but no one will know.”

Nuance Aesthetics is led by a team of dedicated care providers who believe in forming lasting relationships with patients. We have been open since July of 2015 and have combined the expertise and skill of Medical Director Dr. Jackson Rhudy (Roo-dee), and Jill Miller, our practice manager. Although our practice is new, our team has worked together for over 10 years and is already well-established in Salt Lake City for our patient-centered service.

Some of our top services are BOTOX® and Dysport® for wrinkle relaxation, the Juvederm® and Restylane® family of fillers to smooth fine lines and add volume, Kybella® for double chin reduction and CoolSculpting® for fat reduction.

At Nuance Aesthetics, experience counts, expertise matters, and integrity is everything. Contact us today to schedule a consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!

Jackson Rhudy, Medical Director, MD

Dr. Jackson Rhudy is a board certified physician who has been practicing in Salt Lake since 1974. After an initial career in emergency medicine, he developed an interest in the new technologies emerging in the field of aesthetics utilizing non-surgical techniques such as lasers, Botox, and injectable fillers. He sought training from leading experts in the aesthetic field at multiple locations in the US and Europe and in 2000 he founded an aesthetic practice called Light Touch Laser Skin Care Center. It rapidly became a leading aesthetic practice in the Salt Lake City area. In 2010, he sold the practice and focused on his other endeavor, Optimum Clinical Research– a private research site that performs clinical trials on new pharmaceutical drugs. But continuing demand from former aesthetic clients led to the formation of a new aesthetic practice in July, 2015. Reuniting with former colleague, Jill Miller, he started Nuance Aesthetics—a practice devoted to providing excellence in the field of non-surgical aesthetics by offering experience and expertise with utmost integrity. Dr. Rhudy maintains his board certification in emergency medicine and is the only physician in Salt Lake City who is board certified in laser surgery.
