How it Started
Blush Aesthetics was founded in December 2016 to provide support and resources as a skin specialist in Toledo.
Our founder, Erin Hennessey, knows personally how skin that is not at its healthiest can take away from reflecting inner confidence. Our passion is to help women and men of all ages, stages and races have the healthiest skin possible. Blush provides the most revolutionary, proven and credible procedures, techniques and products. Additionally, we believe a busy lifestyle shouldn’t be a barrier to access to these exciting choices. For this reason, Blush Aesthetics has extended weekday hours as well as weekend appointments available, too.
