Blair Wegner, Licensed Aesthetician

Blair began her career in the aesthetic and cosmetic industry in 2010. Her passion for skin helped her graduate as Valedictorian of her class at Rudae’s School of Beauty Culture. Specializing in advanced Aspire treatments such as BBL, miraDry, Halo, and other laser modalities, Blair can treat a wide variety of aesthetic concerns. In addition to treating patients, Blair travels across the country educating other professionals on the science behind SkinMedica’s groundbreaking products, as one of very few Esthetician speakers in the nation. When asked, she says the most rewarding part of her job is not just the clinical results her patients achieve, but when she can help a patient see their intrinsic beauty radiating on the outside. If she’s not working, Blair is most likely remodeling her home with her husband and two Pit bulls or going to the theatre.
