Education and Expertise
Brooke Nix Medical Aesthetics inspires confidence with knowledge and safety
When it comes to getting the results you’re dreaming of, Brooke Nix Medical Aesthetics in Knoxville and Maryville relies on two key assets the staff possesses: education and experience. With nearly 22 years as a physician assistant, Nix has specialized in aesthetics, dermatology and plastic and craniofacial surgery. She is a national trainer, speaker and advisor for injectables with Allergan Medical Institute. In fact, her company plans to open its own training center in 2024.
She can assure that her staff of physician assistants, nurses and aestheticians are equally as qualified. “Our practice takes pride in continuing education,” she says. “While we desire to refine and perfect our skills, we also want to share our knowledge and expertise with new injectors entering the field. And we want to consistently educate our patients on treatments yielding optimal outcomes.”
Nix knew early on that she wanted a career in medicine. “I began a career in dermatology and was introduced to cosmetic medicine. When you look good, you feel good,” she says. “As you age, we are able to restore what was once there. I enjoy making people feel confident in their own skin.”
The team puts safety at the forefront to assure exceptional patient outcomes while providing an extraordinary experience with a compassionate, yet meticulous, approach to all treatments and procedures. “We look at the entire anatomy of the face or body in order to customize a treatment plan for each patient.” Each of the practice providers sub-specializes in specific treatment areas, from injectables to laser treatments, body contouring and aesthetic services.
While her team understands the importance of education and prevention with injectables (Botox and dermal fillers), lasers, body treatments (CoolSculpting, CoolTone, body fillers), aesthetic services (microneedling with PRP, chemical peels, Diamond Glow, facials) and medical-grade skincare, patients are not always provided with education and prevention information. After patients treat to complete based on aesthetic goals and treatments, it allows Brooke and her team to “educate them on maintaining those results with a tailored treatment plan going forward, thus preventing us from beginning at baseline again,” she says.
Though Nix can look back on count-less satisfied patients, one in particular springs to mind. “She had had multiple surgeries throughout the years for a cleft palate. One particular visit we addressed concerns about an asymmetrical smile. She had been unaware that anything could be done to correct it. We educated her on options available and corrected her asymmetry. Her smile was restored. A small asymmetry correction in her lips restored self-confidence and joy when smiling again.”
In addition to helping patients achieve their own personal goals, the-team works hard to serve the community as well. Nix is a board member for the Maryville Downtown Association as well as the Hope Gala benefiting the American Cancer Society, in addition to being a member of Leadership Blount and the Blount County Chamber. They work with Girls Incorporated and donate to local schools and nonprofits. “Our community is full of wonderful, locally owned businesses we enjoy supporting,” she says.
