KKR has made a minority investment in SkinSpirit, a provider of aesthetic skin and body care in the U.S.

SkinSpirit was founded in 2003 in Palo Alto, Calif. and offers Botox cosmetic and dermal fillers to its clients with 31 skincare clinics nationwide. The investment from KKR will be used to help the company grow its position in the medical spa category and also looks to provide additional resources to support SkinSpirit’s “people-first” culture. KKR is investing in SkinSpirit through its Health Care Strategic Growth Fund II, a fund focused on investing in healthcare-related companies to which KKR aims to be a strategic partner in helping reach scale. CEO and co-founder Lynn Heublein will continue to lead the company, guiding brand expansion, vision and culture.

“We see long-term opportunities for growth in medical aesthetics, a category that we have tracked closely for several years,” comments Ali Satvat, partner at KKR and global head of KKR healthcare strategic growth.  “Lynn and her team have built a differentiated platform that has earned the respect of providers and clients across the country.”
