In the bustling city of Nashville, two passionate nurse practitioners, Katie Tsakeres and Lindsey Felts, have joined forces to create a unique aesthetic experience. With a shared vision of providing a low-pressure, nonjudgmental environment for individuals seeking aesthetic treatments, they established Melrose Aesthetics. In this interview, Katie and Lindsey shed light on their journey, the challenges they've faced, and the heartfelt memories that have shaped their lives.

Having worked together for a decade as nurse practitioners in a high acuity cardiology practice, Katie and Lindsey discovered a shared passion for aesthetics. Their desire to create a safe and caring space for individuals in Nashville became a driving force. With the perfect alignment of circumstances, they knew they had to turn their dream into a reality. Within just six months, Melrose Aesthetics came to life, exceeding their expectations. Grateful for the overwhelming support they have received, Katie and Lindsey cherish the relationships they have built with their clients, who have become more than just clients—they have become friends.

While their journey has been relatively smooth, Katie and Lindsey acknowledge that they faced their fair share of challenges. However, their clients' unwavering support and the encouragement they received from colleagues and other medspa owners played a significant role in overcoming these obstacles. The power of women uplifting and empowering one another has been a driving force in their success.

Melrose Aesthetics is a medical aesthetics practice offering a range of services including injectables such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, dermal fillers, Microneedling, PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin), and skincare. What sets Melrose Aesthetics apart is their unwavering commitment to putting the individual's wants and needs first. Through collaborative planning, they aim to help clients rediscover their natural beauty and fall back in love with the skin they were born with. Their approach focuses on enhancing and refreshing one's appearance while maintaining authenticity.

When asked about their fondest childhood memories, Katie and Lindsey share heartwarming stories that shaped their lives. For Katie, the memories revolve around growing up in a small town surrounded by her parents, cousins, and extended family. The closeness and joy she experienced with her loved ones made her childhood truly memorable. In Lindsey's case, her family's open-heartedness stood out. Their home became a gathering place for athletes who couldn't be with their families during the holidays. Regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status, Lindsey's parents welcomed everyone with open arms. This inclusivity is something Lindsey is proud of and aspires to pass on to her own children.

Katie Tsakeres and Lindsey Felts, the compassionate co-founders of Melrose Aesthetics, have embarked on a remarkable journey to create a welcoming haven for aesthetics in Nashville.
