your medical spa in St. Louis

Giving a fresh face to aesthetic treatments

Our Story

Metro Medspa is a modern beauty bar putting a fresh face on aesthetic treatments.

Our goal is simple…Normalize aesthetic treatments. We created Metro Medspa from the perspective of an everyday woman. We know it’s not easy to sit in a sterile, medical-ish treatment room holding a mirror pointing out what bothers you about your face or body. So we flipped the script with a modern beauty bar that focuses on beauty as an empowering feeling, not a source of insecurity.

When you walk through the door, you’ll be greeted by a member of our girl gang and engulfed by a sophisticated space described as “Nip Tuck Meets Barbie Dream House”. Help yourself at our beverage bar and take a seat in one of our chic (yes, it’s an IG moment), yet relaxing, swinging egg chairs. Come in solo or meet a friend at the Botox Bar where you can sit, catch up and wage the war against wrinkles arm in arm. We’re not just here to provide accessible aesthetic treatments at an affordable price point through expert providers, we’re here to fuel a movement that empowers everyday women to destigmatize cosmetic treatments and own their beauty routine with confidence.

 We truly believe that beauty is feeling, and we want you to leave Metro Medspa feeling just that, beautiful.

Beauty isn’t definite,
We’ll help you define it

Kate Schoemehl

Owner & the Beauty Boss

Kate is the Beauty Boss and founder of Metro Medspa. Kate has always been a lover of all things beauty and was thrilled to break into the medical aesthetic industry in 2010 when she joined a start-up company as an Aesthetic Practice Development Specialist in NYC.

With this company, Kate launched several innovative aesthetic devices. Throughout her career, Kate has had the opportunity to work alongside several of New York City and Chicago’s top plastic surgeons and dermatologists where she has gained extensive knowledge in aesthetic injectables, skincare and minimally invasive treatments. In 2015, Kate moved from NYC to STL to be with her husband James and grow their blended family.

Kate is a mom to 5 children (2 by blood and 3 by love). When Kate was pregnant with her youngest daughter in 2017, she decided to leverage years of experience in the aesthetic industry and cross over from Corporate America to entrepreneurship, launching Metro Medspa.

Metro Medspa is based on Kate’s vision of building an empowering community for women in a cool, comfortable space that offers accessible aesthetic procedures and demystifies the world of once taboo cosmetic treatments.

I was born and raised in Fenton, MO. I also lived in Edwardsville, IL for serval years during and after collage.

I love being a part of Metro Medspa’s Girl Gang for so many reasons. The most important being the love and support we all give each other! It is so refreshing to wake up and be excited to go to work and spend the day with your co-workers.

My Favorite service at Metro is PRP Facials. It is amazing what it has done for my skin.

Growing up I always pictured myself owning my own bakery!

I have two boys 12 and 15 who keep me very busy with their crazy baseball schedules!

When we can get away we love visiting Colorado

My favorite restaurant in STL would be The Post

Katie Venegoni

Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner

My family calls me Kate! 

I was born in St. Louis, MO; raised in Troy, MO and moved back from Portland, OR about a year ago.

I obtained my Bachelor’s in Science of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish Goldfarb and my Master’s in Science of Nursing from Maryville University. I am a Certified Adult-Geriatric Nurse Practitioner, trained in Aesthetics for the past 4 years.

I chose my career with Metro because I fully buy into the culture and values we cultivate. Empowering every individual we see to invest in their best selves makes what I do the most rewarding. My favorite service we offer is tox, always!

I always knew I wanted to be a Doctor or Nurse.

I have my 7 year old rescue pup Zoey! She is my best gal.

Louie’s Wine Dive! (Try the shrimp Diablo pasta)

Heather Beal

Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner/Nurse Injector

Born and raised Centralia, Illinois. Have lived in Miami, Florida for 1 year and have lived in St. Louis for the past 10 years.

I love to empower women and make them feel their best self. The whole philosophy behind Metro is to help women build each other up and that is what we do each and every day. We have the best team and work collaboratively with one another to help patients achieve their personal goals. Helping patients feel and look their best gives me such gratification and purpose.

I wanted to be a cosmetologist when I was growing up. I loved making people feel beautiful! I ended up starting out as a nurse and furthered my career as an aesthetic nurse practitioner. Now I have the best of both worlds by using my artistic and creative side as well as my medical background to help make patients more confident.

I have three kids ( two boys and a girl) as well as a Goldendoodle

I love a warm sunny beach! Cabo is my favorite place to travel.

My favorite restaurant in STL is Twisted tree. I am always up for a steak and potato type of meal. Plus- their salad is amazing!

Christy Miceli

Licensed Aesthetician

Trixie

My husband’s late grandmother was very hard of hearing, and when she met me 10 years ago she thought I said Trixie (rather than Christy) when I introduced myself.  Needless to say name stuck!

Born and raised here in St. Louis county my entire life. 

The Salon Professional Academy & continuing education there 

Gang at Metro, and what’s your favorite service at Metro?
I loved the options of advanced treatments they offered, it’s never-ending, we are always learning about new treatments with the latest technology.
Hand down Morpheus8-aka microneedling on steroids!!!

A veterinarian-until I found out I would occasionally have to put animals down then quickly changed my mind to a hairdresser or actress

Yes twin 6 year old girls and a 2 year old Goldendoodle Poppy

Anywhere with a beach, I’m not picky

Marlie Hoyt

Licensed AESTHETICIAN

I was born in Utah, grew up in Missouri, then back west to Idaho for 5 years
during collage, and back here to Missouri!

I got a bachelors at BYU-I, then aesthetics school at the aesthetic institute

I went to school with one of the other estheticians at Metro and adored her,
then the minute I met the rest of the metro girls I knew it was the place for
me, I couldn’t have ended up in a better Medspa! My favorite services would
be either IPL or Morpheus 8!

Probably a singer or do Broadway musicals, I can’t sing at all though so
working with skin was the next best thing!

Family dogs Ruby and Callie

Ireland, The cliffs and rainbows are just stunning and it’s SO green!

Licensed aesthetician from Aesthetics Institute. I am also a Certified Phlebotomist and hold many additional certifications from continuing education over the years.

I was looking for a spa closer to home.
The energy at Metro is like no other. It’s such a fun, happy, healthy

I always thought I wanted to be a veterinarian

 I have 3 kids; Hailey, Clayton and Owen. They
are all involved in sports so any extra time we may have is usually asorbed
by them! I have two additional children, my chocolate labs; Betty and
Dasher

I honestly don’t have a
favorite destination. I love to travel and explore new places. I would say my
favorite place I have been to is the Cayman Islands

Joe Bacardis. The best little
hole in the wall Italian place

Marisa Boxdorfer

Customer Relations

Sainte Genevieve, MO I lived there for most of my childhood and then moved to Imperial, MO where I have been ever since.

Not a provider but my degree is in Business, specializing in accounting.

I like learning about different industries and the work atmosphere makes me feel at home. Microneedling for sure!!

I always thought I would be in some kind of entertainment industry.

2 boys and 3 dogs, it’s a full house!!

Anywhere tropical with water, but I love experiencing new locations every trip. One day I will make it to Europe.

I don’t think I have a favorite because I love to try new places! Anything with good seafood or a good steak!

Veronica Pauli

Client Services Coordinator

I I was born in Chesapeake, VA. I am from Benld, IL & I am from a very small town in Illinois called Benld. In college I went to SIU Edwardsville and lived in Edwardsville, IL for 4 years. I moved to Saint Louis in 2015 with my husband and he is from Saint Louis. 

Not a provider, but I do have a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Communications with a specialty in Public Relations.

I chose to join this great girl gang at Metro because of the wonderful hearts they all have and they are all so wonderful to be around every day because they are team oriented and are always positive and uplifting. This is a group of women that makes the workplace not feel like work. We all work together to make our clients feel welcome and beautiful from when they walk in the door until they leave.

Educating on services and products and making clients feel great is our specialty. My favorite service at Metro is the Laser Hair Removal. It is life changing.

I wanted to be a teacher just like my mom.

I have a daughter, Autumn, who is two years old and two labrador retrievers named Jax & Jori.

My favorite travel destination is Cancun, Mexico, but I enjoy our annual trip that we take to the Outer Banks, North Carolina with my family every year.

My favorite restaurant in Saint Louis is Twisted Tree.
