Crowned by Kansas City Magazine: AesthetiCare Wins Title of Best Med Spa in Kansas City!

We are SO excited to announce that AesthetiCare has been crowned the best med spa in Kansas City by Kansas City Magazine for 2021! 

This award took a ton of votes from you, the public, for Kansas City Magazine’s annual Best of KC Readers Poll. In honor of this award, we want to introduce you to everything that helps make AesthetiCare the best med spa in Kansas City    

Our roots as the best med spa in Kansas City

We opened AesthetiCare in 2001 as one of the first med spas in Kansas City. Since then, we’ve grown to be one of the largest aesthetic centers in the country. Along with being dubbed the best med spa in Kansas City by Kansas City magazine, we are also one of the top 10 med spas by the American Med Spa Association!  

We base our success on a simple philosophy: offer the most effective treatments available provided by highly trained staff, all layered with exceptional customer service. 

This approach has carried AesthetiCare to where it is today, and we couldn’t be more proud of what our amazing team has achieved over the years  

What makes AesthetiCare so unique

As the years pass, plenty of other med spas have opened in our area. We understand now more than ever that our clients have many options for aesthetic services. This factor, coupled with our philosophy and mission, is what drives us to make sure AesthetiCare is unmatched with our services.

A focus on education

To offer the best services, we need the best providers. This is why we spend $60,000 to $80,000 annually to train our team and provide further professional development. This keeps us up-to-date on the latest techniques, procedures, and advancements in the aesthetics industry so our providers can deliver the best service possible for our clients!

We also have a highly qualified and experienced advisory board that includes:

  • Dr. Jay Burns – Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
  • Dr. Christopher Robb – Board Certified Dermatologist & Cosmetic Surgeon
  • Dr. Amy Carter – Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist

Our co-founders and managing partners Matt Taranto and Kathy Taranto complete this advisory board; this team ensures AesthetiCare is always following the best protocols and offering the best treatments available.

AesthetiCare is a national aesthetics training center

Not everyone knows AesthetiCare is actually a national training center for other med spas! We have trained over 1600 other clinics for lasers, injectables, facials, and other aesthetic treatments. We take pride in being a go-to resource for other skin clinics so they can deliver the best and most advanced techniques with in-depth training.

Our amount of service offerings

For many clinics, they might have 4 to 5 FDA-cleared devices at their disposal for their service offerings. AesthetiCare has 36 FDA-cleared devices (and counting!) so we can offer the best of the best. 

Many people think only coastal cities like New York or Los Angeles can offer the most advanced med spa treatments, but AesthetiCare offers these premium services right here in Kansas City at our Ward Parkway, Liberty, or Lenexa locations! 

Two premier locations 

Speaking of Ward Parkway and Liberty, we are so proud to be a part of these two communities and serve the greater metropolitan area as the best med spa in Kansas City. Located in Leawood, Kansas, our original location is 11,000 square feet! 

Our newest location is in Liberty, Missouri; we are so excited to be a part of the vibrant and fast-growing community of Liberty.

Thorough complimentary consultations

For all new clients, we offer a complimentary one-hour consultation and skin evaluation. You’ll meet with one of our skin professionals as we complete a comprehensive skin analysis using our VISIA photo imaging technology. This technology is so advanced that it reveals your skin’s “true age” and maps out specific areas of concern so we can give the best treatment recommendations for you! 

Along with the VISIA skin analysis, we will also:

  • Offer a thorough history of our clinic, staff, and treatments
  • Educate you about the largest organ in the human body: your skin!
  • Discuss your skincare concerns
  • Review before and after photos from clients who have received our services
  • Provide a long-term skincare plan that includes both product and treatment recommendations

We provide these free consultations so first-time clients can really get something out of the consultation. Whether you choose to book services or just leave with a more thorough understanding of your skin and how to care for it, we want it to be productive for you! You’re in the hands of seasoned professionals from your first visit at AesthetiCare.

If you’re not quite ready for an in-person consultation, we also offer instant virtual consultations through our website! This easy tool has you choose your treatment area(s) and specific concerns. Once you finish, you’ll receive a confidential list of treatment recommendations tailored to your preferences! 

Client education

Along with our in-depth consultation process, we also care a lot about providing other tools and resources for client education. We don’t want to hide behind “smoke and mirrors” with our services. We want our clients to understand how these treatments work in-depth! 

Some of the client education resources include:

  • An AesthetiCare YouTube channel with interviews, treatment demos, and get to know you videos with our team
  • Educational (and fun!) events to spread the word on our procedures
  • An online newsletter to keep our clients in the loop on new procedures, monthly specials, upcoming events, giveaways, and more
  • A resource blog with comprehensive articles on all of our treatments with FAQs, procedure process insight, and other relevant information

Our team is always working to provide ways for our clients to get to know our treatments and services. Client education and transparency is incredibly important to us at AesthetiCare.

Reviews | Best med spa in Kansas City

We are so proud of our reputation as the best med spa in Kansas City. Our locations have an average of 4.9 and 5-star Google reviews. 

You can also view our reviews on RealPatientRatings® and search by different providers!

Here are couple of in-depth reviews from the last year for our Leawood and Liberty locations:


“Christina is the best! As an injection newbie, I showed up to my appointment with a few nerves. The space was super clean and professional, yet not intimidating, making me instantly feel a bit more relaxed. Christina explained in detail my injection options, what to expect from the procedure, aftercare, and when she would need to see me for a follow up appointment. She was confident and reassuring, and I felt so comfortable before we began the service. The service itself was super quick and virtually painless, which was a very welcome surprise! I love my results and have received so many compliments (be ready for some referrals). We ended our appointment with a tour of the facility and discussions about other services offered. SO IMPRESSED. I absolutely trust Christina and AesthetiCare with all my skin and wellness needs, and can’t wait to explore more services!” – Andra M.

“AesthetiCare staff are professional and kind and the procedures I’ve received have been shockingly successful! I say shocking because when using products to deal with adult acne you get used to researching, buying, applying, and not getting the results you hope for. Microneedling twice with Jennifer has had a huge impact on my acne scarring and confidence and was worth the money – it is effective and long-lasting especially if your breakouts are under control. Jennifer was up-front about the expectations so there were no surprises and I did not feel like any treatment was excessive. Will return and continue to recommend to others!” – Elise M.


“I have been a client of AesthetiCare in Liberty MO since they opened in the fall of 2020.  Their compassion and dedication to their clients is highly commendable.  The time Noreen spends explaining the procedure, potential side effects, and final results expectations, proves their desire to be the most caring and devoted Medical Spa in NW Missouri.  Nancy provides attentive, empathetic, and kindheartedness to her family of clients. In addition, Nancy will listen to a client’s concerns and ensure all questions are answered to comfort the client.  When I walk into the office, I see Lauren’s gentle and smiling face.  At this time, I realize I am Home away from Home.  They are truly magnanimous!!” – Heidi E.

“Nancy will painstakingly work until she is 100% satisfied. She is kind, funny, patient, and knows how to appeal to her clients. I shopped around, AC-Liberty was my third place I checked out and I’m so glad I found her and AC, that I didn’t just settle for any aesthetician in the area. She truly is the best!

Update: Kelly also is an amazing person. She was patient, sympathetic, knowledgeable, quick,  and found ways to minimize pain and discomfort for a client with major needle phobia. Nancy surpassed her previous performance by really being an all star while Kelly performed an injection service. I cannot say enough wonderful things about these two and this place!” – Angela

What our clients are saying

Krissy is thorough and easy to talk to. She is confident in her skills and put me at ease.

Jessica is always keeping me up to date on new and exciting treatments. Although I have done multiple Intracel treatments in the past, this time she encouraged me to add on PRP. I highly recommend. Healing time was so fast!

Jessica did a great job always checking with me on how I was feeling. She was always concerned about how I was doing and doing the best job she could!

Jennifer explained everything in details and was very diligent in making sure that the procedure and follow up went well

I was given the proper guidance and steps to take to make my skin better. I truly love the honesty, care, and time taken to help find solutions to make my skin better. The before and after pictures truly show a difference on how well the procedure works. And I’m still noticing differences as my skin continues to heal.
