APRN | Medical Director
Hi, I am Christina Baden and I am using my over 20 years of experience as a nurse practitioner to launch Connecticut’s newest anti-aging treatment center, Re:nu 180 MedSpa. Focused specifically on injectable treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers, I created Re:nu 180 to be a place to relax, unwind, feel beautiful, and renew your spirit.
I began my medical career at the University of Connecticut, where I earned my bachelor’s degree in nursing. From there, I went on to earn my master’s degree from Yale University. Shortly thereafter, I joined Connecticut’s Radiance MedSpa, where I discovered my passion for anti-aging treatments. Soon, I became the lead clinician, responsible for administering all types of cosmetic procedures and training incoming staff. It may sound cliché, but helping women and men become happier and more comfortable in their own skin has become my life’s work. Other than my family, there is nothing that I love more.
When it comes to MedSpa treatments, I do things a little differently. With a decade of cosmetic enhancement experience, I help people find the transformation they seek and the immediate results they want. Working with me during a consultation is more of a conversation. I listen to my patients’ concerns and ask questions about how they perceive their problems with aging skin. As we talk, I get to know them and they get to know me. I consider each patient’s wants and needs, and together we determine what path is best, whether it is Botox to reduce deep brow lines or a bit of filler around the lips to lift and smooth the skin.
With an artist’s eye, I enhance a person’s natural beauty and help create a younger-looking version that still moves normally and shows expression. My patients never look fake or frozen. Instead, they seem as though they were graced with anti-aging heredity. What I have learned throughout my years as both a nurse and a clinician is that, often, less is more and prevention is nine-tenths of the cure. With a little work now, my patients will age gracefully and require fewer procedures in the future.
Re:nu 180 MedSpa offers more than just cosmetic treatments. It is a fusion of anti-aging procedures, laughter, and enjoyment. Unlike other practitioners, I get to know my patients and learn more than just their skin type and procedure preferences. We laugh together. We have fun. Dare I say, it is almost as though we become friends.
That is why the majority of my clients are previous patients and referrals. After someone works with me, she or he knows that I can be trusted to provide amazing results and that I would never do anything that was not in the client’s best interest. For me, Re:nu 180 MedSpa is about helping people become the best possible version of themselves. It is about making them happy. When I see the joy on a patient’s face when she looks in the mirror after her first treatment, I know that I am doing exactly what I was meant to do.
