At Behind The Lines Aesthetics, we believe in natural beauty and embracing your imperfections.  We strive to not make you look 20 years younger, but to make you look the best you possibly can at your age.  We offer procedures that provide effective results without the permanence and cost of cosmetic surgery.  All of our injectables are metabolized within the body, limiting their longevity, allowing for the control and variance of your appearance over time.  Our injectables are applied delicately so that you can retain your natural expressions, avoiding the dreaded frozen look.  Similarly, our non-invasive procedures work to gradually improve your appearance through targeted treatment.  We believe everyone is perfectly imperfect, and we encourage you to embrace your natural beauty.

Dr. Nina Desai, Do


Welcome to Behind The Lines Aesthetics! I come from a long family of medical professionals with an extensive resume that focuses on wellness and prevention. My driving philosophy has been to blend my years of osteopathic medical training combined with my passion for aesthetics to pamper the body, spirit and soul of today’s busy women and men, using innovative clinical aesthetic services fused with laser technology. I believe in the power of human touch, which – when combined with our treatments – captures the essence of today’s non-surgical, age defying solutions! I also help patients with prevention and wellness techniques with home skin care regimes to suit the demands of today’s busy lifestyles.

               "Invest in the most valuable asset… yourself." – Dr. Nina Desai
