Merz Aesthetics announces the launch of the “confidence to be” branding platform following the conclusion of the company’s reorganization into three independently operating businesses. 

As a symbol of its new direction, Merz Aesthetics launched a new brand for the business featuring a bold look and feel reflective of the organization’s innovative, entrepreneurial employees and customers, and the confidence they strive to inspire in patients every day, according to the company in a media release. 

“The new brand for Merz Aesthetics is an expression of our purpose — we exist to fuel confidence by helping people look better, feel better and live better. We want everyone to have the confidence to be their best self.”

Over the coming months, Merz Aesthetics will focus on helping customers recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We recognize that medical aesthetics can be an integral part of self-care routines. The last four months have taught us that during a time of high uncertainty, self-care and personal health are top of mind, so we will continue to provide our customers the tools to empower patients in their personal quests to be their best selves.”
