The Aesthetic Place opened its doors during the COVID pandemic in September 2020. Founder and Nurse Injector Kristen Kneidel, RN, BSN, began her aesthetic career in 2014. After years of continuing education, mastering her art of natural intention injecting and full-face rejuvenation, a shift occurred that she now recognizes as part of her life path.

Her vision was to launch a med spa that focuses solely on facial rejuvenation, celebrating one’s unique beauty and build a place of luxury, integrity, and inclusivity in a welcoming environment. Just weeks from the time the idea was born, The Aesthetic Place was open and thriving.

“Our first year was a wonderful surprise. With the incredibly small staff we had, we exceeded our goals well beyond our wildest expectations,” Kristen states. “Don’t get me wrong, it’s been far from easy. I have worked endless days for nearly three years now but it has all been worth it.” When asked about the most challenging part of running your own business in addition to seeing her own patients, her answer is simple. “The newness of running a business and the learning curve that goes with that. Injecting is my happy place; learning business operations has been the biggest hurdle.”

During these years of growth and learning, she explains that her inspiration has been to show other people who may be struggling to launch a business or find their path that hard work and resilience truly do pay off. That believing in yourself can lead to great things. In one of her posts before opening her place, she writes, “This is for all of you who were not good students. Dreamers who were told you couldn’t. For those who are self-made but never give up. For all the single moms. Never quit dreaming; never quit doing. Take the chances; honor your spirit always.”
So, CHEERS to another year of success and great things to come!
