Renew’s talented aesthetician Shelley Birnbaum whips up custom visage-pampering treatments that earned her top honors from Baltimore City Paper in 2007 and from Baltimore magazine in 2008. After an initial skin analysis, Shelley will deep-clean skin using a custom crafted mix of organic alpha-hydroxy acid or fruit enzymes and mechanical exfoliation on face and neck. Each Mediterranean facial indulges dry-witted skin with organic herbs such as grape-seed oil, olive oil, and pomegranate-seed oil. Facials finish with extractions and a moisturizing lineup including a hand-mixed mask, serum, and eye cream, allowing spot-on impersonations of dangerously attractive supervillian Dr. Smoothface. A stress-relieving face, neck, and shoulder massage relaxes the body’s second floor, while the anti-aging hand treatment allows clients to bid adieu with youthful goodbye waves. ReNew's green touches are evident everywhere, from interiors lined with eco-friendly paints to its earthy and enthusiastic staff.
