At Nuance Aesthetics, experience counts, expertise matters, and integrity is everything

Nuance Aesthetics is led by a team of dedicated aesthetic providers who believe in forming lasting relationships with patients. Nuance has been open since July of 2015 and has combined the expertise and skill of Dr. Rhudy, Owner/Medical Director, and Jill Miller, Co-Owner/Practice Manager. They have worked together for over 20+ years in the medical aesthetic field and are well-established in the Salt Lake City area.
The word “nuance” is defined as a “subtle difference,” and at Nuance Aesthetics, that is our goal. We strive for natural results utilizing modern medical aesthetic treatments that help retain your youthful beauty. We partner with Allergan®, Galderma, and Sciton, the market leaders in the aesthetic industry, to provide results that, as Allergan® puts it, “everyone will notice, but no one will know.”

Jackson Rhudy, MD

Owner/Medical Director

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 patients led to the formation of a new aesthetic practice in July 2015. Reuniting with a former colleague, Jill Miller, they started Nuance Aesthetics—a practice devoted to providing excellence in the field of non-surgical aesthetics by offering experience and expertise with the 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.

When Dr Rhudy isn’t in the office, he loves riding his bike up City Creek. He has always had a passion for learning and growing in the medical field which is why he spends a lot of free time researching the latest treatments and technology that keeps Nuance ahead of the curve.

GOHARS FAVORITE TREATMENTS

BOTOX/DYSPORT are very effective at creating a smooth appearance and reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. It works by relaxing the facial muscles and softening expressions. The areas where you can get treated with these neurotoxins are; frown lines (between eyebrows), forehead lines, top of the nose (bunny lines), eyebrows/hooded eyes, wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), under the eyes (tear trough), lipstick lines (around the mouth), chin Botox (to prevent dimpling), neck (platysmas bands), and masseter muscle (to help with teeth grinding and slim the jaw angle).

SCULPTRA The results of Sculptra usually look much more natural when compared to dermal fillers. This is because of the ongoing process of collagen stimulation that the Sculptra produces. It causes a softer fullness, which looks more natural and less over-filled. The slow reveal of results also gives you the option of how much Sculptra you and your nurse injector are comfortable with injecting. The gradual process aids in the subtle and natural results.

Microneedling with PRF- I MEAN WHY NOT?! Microneedling with PRF is the best natural skin rejuvenation option for people who want better skin tone, smoother texture, & reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. It can lighten brown spots, stimulate thicker hair, smoothen acne scars, improve under eye texture, and overall brighter looking skin.
