My priority is the overall canvas and not just a wrinkle between the brows. I will not rush the process, and I expect a lot of my clients at home. I will educate you regarding your skin. I will let you go when I have exhausted all treatment options to help guarantee your desired result. Therefore, I will continue to promote relations between myself and the many wonderful plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and aestheticians that are here in Nashville, so that I can continue to be your skin care advocate. I will never tell you that I have it all or can do it all, but I will always offer you my very best.

Office Manager and Skin Care Specialist
Nashville native Susanne Smith has always had a passion for beauty. Just look at her Instagram profile – favorite color: leopard print! Her love of Public Relations, coupled with her people skills gifting, emerged while attending Middle Tennessee State University with a two-year internship at Universal Music Group Nashville working in the publicity department. After graduation (with a BS degree in Music Business with a focus in Public Relations) she found herself employed where she interned – Universal Music Group, Nashville.
While at UMG, a mutual friend introduced Smith to Tracey Robinson of Trace Skin Care that subsequently led to working at Trace. Smith fell in love with the medical aesthetic industry thanks to Robinson and Trace Skin Care where she noticed how someone’s outlook can be positively affected when they feel confident about themselves.
The lure of the Left Coast came calling and Smith moved to Los Angeles working in both entertainment and fashion PR. While PR was fun, exciting, yet exhausting, she missed the world of medical aesthetics and found herself at The Kopelson Clinic in Beverly Hills, an advanced dermatology and laser aesthetic center.
The siren song of the South came calling and she’s back where she started; her first love – beauty, and Trace Skin Care. Smith says, “I loved LA and so enjoyed working the worlds of entertainment, fashion and beauty. Yet, Trace Skin Care is my home. I am passionate about providing unparalleled customer service to our clients and making sure they feel welcomed from the moment they call, email or walk in our door.”
