Medical Profile: Kim Hagen R.N., B.S.N.
Cloud 9 Medi Spa was opened in 2008 by Kim Hagen R.N., B.S.N.. Kim received her Associate’s Degree from San Bernardino Valley College in 1998, and received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing diploma from University of Phoenix in 2001. While still in college, Kim was hired by San Bernardino County Hospital, now Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, and throughout her career, she worked in various medical and surgical units. She was placed in a setting to closely monitor and assist in wound care and skin treatments. Kim has a background in surgery clinic, E.R., medical/surgical and family health clinic. It was this experience that intrigued Kim, and got her to start her journey into the medical aesthetics field.
As her curiosity grew, and medical aesthetics practices were becoming more popular, Kim started to groom herself to work in that arena. She started with Botox and Dermal filler certification. She continued on to become a licensed Permanent Cosmetic Technician. Finally she earned her Aesthetician License from the California State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology in 2004.
In 2007, Kim decided to take a chance on her passion, and cashed out her retirement package from A.R.M.C., and opened up Cloud 9 Medical Spa, with the assistance of her brother, Dr. Richard Preci. It was a scary time because the economy was crashing, and nobody knew how bad it was about to get. It seemed that more businesses were closing than opening.
After opening Cloud 9, Kim received her Advanced training in Botox injections under a Newport Beach doctor who sells the most Botox in the United States. She was then trained in Advanced Dermal Filler techniques by Dr. Richard Balikian, a double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, who practices in Temecula. Shortly after her training, Dr. Balikian became the Medical Director at Cloud 9 Medi Spa. Kim still attends many workshops and trainings to keep abreast of all of the latest innovations in Medical Aesthetics, medical skin care, health and wellness, and Botox and Dermal Fillers.
Kim has always been very creative and artistic, which has been a huge asset in the success of Cloud 9. Her attention to detail, and ability to estimate the outcome of a procedure where results may not appear for 3 or 4 days, is what sets Cloud 9 apart from other clinics. Anybody can go to the store and buy a set of paints, but it does not make them an artist.
Kim has a true passion for her role as a care provider. She prides herself on her integrity and feels honored to be able to use her talents to bring people a higher quality of life through more self-confidence. There is a saying on the wall at Cloud 9 which is proven true each day. It reads “May all who enter as guests, leave as friends”.
