Behind the Biz: The Real Spa - Opening SOON in the Northland!
I sat down with the owner, Suzanne, recently for a chat.
How long where you a rep for Botox, etc.? I was a Botox rep for almost eight years here in Kansas City then became a CoolSculpting Rep for a year and half until June of this year.
Have you always had a passion for Aesthetics? I always wanted to do something that would help people feel their best, I just wasn’t sure what that meant for my life. Then, I became a Botox rep and it all came together. Seeing how people felt after getting a treatment was amazing! Watching patients transform and seeing their self-confidence rise... I loved it.
What made you want to open a spa? I feel big corporations don’t appreciate you as a person and what you bring to the table. You are only 'a number' to most big companies. I got to a point where staying where I was felt scarier than going out on my own. The pull was too great to ignore. I love Aesthetics and most importantly love helping people and changing their lives and how they feel about themselves. I really wanted to focus on that.
What are some services that you will offer that you would like to highlight? All of the injectables are amazing, but we have something for everyone. Dermaplaning, Hydrafacial and medical grade skincare are a few things that everyone in their 20’s and up can do that will make a drastic difference in their skin.
Are you from Kansas City? I am not from Kansas City. I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, OK, but I went to the University of Kansas and played tennis there for one year and have basically lived here ever since I graduated in 1993. Kansas City is home for me now!
Where's your favorite place to eat? There are so many amazing places to eat in Kansas City! But I love any Mexican restaurant.
Do you have a hobby or what do you do in your spare time? My hobby now is getting this amazing medical spa off the ground and my three incredible kids; Jackson (15), Dawson (13) and Emery (8)!
Well, I can tell you that I'm excited for The Real Spa to open! It's almost time! Doors open September 5, 2017!
