The Aesthetic Place: Where care of the face and soul meet

Kristen Kneidel RN, BSN, is founder and manager of The Aesthetic Place. She describes this unique med spa nestled in Leawood, KS as a self-care destination that caters to all. Her slogan, “where care of the face and soul meet,” describes her vision for providing expertise in aesthetics as well as the importance of building a relationship with each patient to create a meaningful experience.

Kristen graduated with a BSN in nursing 23 years ago. She found her passion for aesthetics at age 21 when she began working as a beauty consultant at a makeup counter, then later as a freelance makeup artist. While she found different areas in her nursing career fulfilling, she was lacking in the creative outlet she so desired. After staying at home with her two children during their younger years, she returned to nursing in 2014, and found a path to nuture her artistic passion in the growing field of aesthetic medicine. After years of growing her patient base in the greater Kansas City area, she founded The Aesthetic Place in September 2020. Today, her loyal following includes patients throughout the United States.

I have a sincere passion for what I do because I truly love the artistry and celebrating each individual’s unique beauty. My goal is not to distract from that uniqueness, but rather to enhance it. I value doing thorough assessments, understanding the client and their expectations, and educating them on the best treatment plan. When trust is built and a relationship is formed, they begin to understand that they will be getting a natural soft result every time that translates well to friends, family, and coworkers. They feel refreshed and not overdone. It’s about nuances… the slightly lifted cheek, the dark circles that have diminished, a stronger chin, the slightly sharper jawline, the softer lines in the forehead. It’s decreasing shadows or adding light and lift to the face rather than having the obvious injectable appearance so many people are afraid of getting.

Under the medical directorship of Dr. Paul Doskey, MD, she offers cosmetic consultations and injectable treatments. Services offered include Dysport, Botox, Dermal fillers, Sculptra, Kybella and various skincare treatments. Services will expand as new, talented co-workers join the Spa team.
