ABOUT the owner.
Uptown medispa

​With more than 20 years of experience in the medical and aesthetics industries, owner Kristen L. Baker BSN, RN is committed to helping clients to enhance their natural beauty through the means of medical aesthetics.


Kristen began her career as a cosmetologist in the 1990s working as a stylist and makeup artist in Chicago. She has worked with many well-known fashion labels on their runway shows as well as behind the scenes for TV and music video productions.


In 2004, Kristen graduated with high honors from nursing school and practiced for more than a decade in areas such as emergency medicine and elective surgery. Now as an established practitioner, she utilizes the latest medical aesthetics training, techniques and medical-grade products to thwart aging and preserve a youthful appearance for her clients.


Uptown Medispa clients are diverse –  professionals, public figures, parents, students, men, women and teens – and we cater to each unique individual while enhancing and improving their distinctive characteristics. The ultimate result is an overall younger, fresher and healthier appearance.

Danielle Hanson brings her clients the opportunity to enhance and maximize their natural beauty and vibrancy. She creates a serene environment where clients can unwind and optimize their precious personal time.
​Danielle has been working with clients for more than 20 years. Her areas of personal expertise include dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, acne treatments, teen facials and seasonal facials.


As a native to North Central Phoenix, she has strong ties to the community. A mother of three, Danielle offers her time volunteering in the Madison School District.
