Kirsten Prausa

Kirsten Prausa is a trained Medical Assistant, a Cooper Certified Wellness Coach, and a Certified Laser Hair Removal Technician.  She is also trained in several facial and laser treatments.  

Kirsten’s favorite laser treatment is the Clear and Brilliant Laser because it leaves skin polished and glowing after treatment.  

 “I love how it reduced my pigmentation, made my skin tighter, and left it looking refreshed!

 Kirsten has several favorite facials, but her top two are the PRP Dermapenand Jan Marini Transformation Peel. 

"PRP Dermapen really helped with my acne scarring and it greatly reduced the size of my pores. My large pores have always been an issue with my skin appearance and this treatment left a noticeable difference!”

"The Jan Marini Transformation Peel is a game changer when it comes to chemical peels. I noticed the most difference in my acne breakouts from oily skin. The Transformation Peel really helped with the issue of over production of oil that I have." 

Kirsten was born and raised in Texas.  She loves being a part of the team at Ageless Image Med Spa because, 

“We're a family here. We are constantly learning together, growing together and advancing our skills. We get to meet new clients every day, and nothing is more rewarding then helping them reach their goals!”

"I enjoy greeting the clients and helping them through their visit here. I'm able, through my personal experiences with products and treatments, to answer their questions and assure that their visit to our spa is a pleasant one. Meeting their needs is my #1 goal."
