Meet Laura

"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."
- Mother Teresa -

Owner is a general term. Anyone can own a thing, but to drive something, to grow your own small community, to nourish an entity that gives back – that is more than ownership. It is embodiment.

The driving force behind Kitzie Spa – Signature Skin + Care is Laura Kitzmann. Yes, her name is on the door, but beyond that, she owns the positive impact that looking and feeling good deposits in our physical, mental and emotional health banks.

Laura’s professional footprint is distinct. In the state of Missouri, she is a leader in oncological skin therapy, acclaimed as Missouri’s first oncology trained esthetician. Completing this specialized training provided Laura with the ability to offer safe, effective and relaxing customized facials, massage therapy, as well as makeup application and skin care education to clients at any stage of cancer treatment.

The Kitzie Story

Laura is an oncology trained Kansas City acne specialist whose proof of excellence lies in her commitment to education. A veteran graduate of Independence College of Cosmetology, Laura is also a CIDESCO diplomate. CIDESCO qualification is the world’s most prestigious professional recognition in the field of esthetics and wellness therapy. Additionally, armed with certifications in microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and dermaplaning, her professional strengths include LED light therapy prescription, ingredient mastery, makeup artistry and wax hair removal. Laura is constantly evolving in the world of esthetics, offering highly individualized skin therapy to every studio guest she welcomes.

Laura’s passion is not new, yet her zeal for esthetics has only grown since her days of making homemade facial masks and playing makeup with her sister as a young girl. That creative enthusiasm has grown into what each Kitzie Spa guest receives when they meet Laura: expectations that are always exceeded, accompanied by guaranteed rejuvenation. The experience Laura creates is rooted in the understanding that each person that steps into her room has unique needs. While every client is distinct, the goal is always the same: create from scratch, a science-based skincare treatment program that delivers results, then enrobe them in relaxation. Kitzie Therapies are all-inclusive, so you’ll  never be surprised by mid-treatment add-ons or “starting from” fees.

Because giving back has become an important part of her career, Laura has committed to having a positive impact on the lives of cancer patients with compassion and healing. As a former volunteer with the American Cancer Society’s Look Good, Feel Better® program, she facilitated workshops that taught cancer patients skin care and beauty techniques to help them combat appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. Today, Laura is a trainer for Oncology Spa Solutions, the premier destination for top-quality oncology spa training, resources and programs tailored to meet the unique needs of high risk clients.

After hours, Laura loves spending quality time with her husband Chris and her two children, Leo and Sydney. All three love coming in for facials!

Kitzie Spa Reviews

"I’ve had several services from Laura and they are always customized, relaxing and rejuvenating. Our Reiki sessions blow me away. Her soft and calming way is always a welcome break from my daily noise. She has helped me find new ways to care for my oily and acne prone skin. An appointment for a Facial, Brow or Reiki with Laura is always on the calendar."

"When you visit Laura for a facial, you will feel the passion for what she does, flow through her fingertips. You will feel like you’re visiting a friend which just adds to the experience of such an intimate service. Her Ultimate Facial is HEAVENLY and I’ll never settle for anything less than this."

"Laura is amazing! I struggled with acne as an adult and spent 3 years seeing various dermatologists who always recommended prescription medications for management, but all were ineffective. It was not until I started working with Laura that I found relief in my skin concerns. She walked me through the process and what to expect and after just a few visits, I could see a VERY noticeable difference in my skin! Laura is patient, flexible and caring. I would never see anyone else (even if that means driving from over an hour away for my appointments). Highly recommend!"

As a guy facials are not something we normally do,  but it was something I wanted to try. Laura was very professional and put me at ease. She took her time and did a great job.  She also gave a great shoulder and neck massage during the facial. Guys, this isn’t girly, do something nice for yourself and get that face cleaned up. You won’t regret it.
