An aesthetician at our Greenwich location, Brittany Sheldon grew up in Eastchester, NY, before completing the intensive program at Make Up For Ever Academy in New York City, becoming certified in Advanced Professional Makeup Application, Beauty & Fashion Techniques. She worked in the beauty and fashion industry as a makeup and brow specialist, growing to understand the true importance of “skin preparation” and the effect it had on the individual, prior to a makeup application. This led her to the Christine Valmy International School for Esthetics, where she graduated with honors and earned dual licensure in New York and Connecticut.
In addition to being a Licensed Esthetician for more than three years, Brittany has continued to expand her professional knowledge and skillset. She has obtained multiple certifications in advanced aesthetics, including chemical peels, advanced microdermabrasion, HydraFacial MD, laser hair reduction and facial/body lymphatic drainage. With her wide-ranging understanding of today’s most effective treatments, she particularly likes to provide Diamond Glow Facials. This three-in-one customizable facial treatment helps to target all skin concerns by extracting, exfoliating and infusing the skin with conditioned-specific serums, making it an ideal option for clients who suffer from congestion, and want to help to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne. Outside the treatment room, Brittany enjoys traveling to Aruba and Las Vegas, but during summer, you may find her volunteering at a community center and working with children.

I have previously worked in the beauty/fashion industry as a makeup artist and brow specialist.
I have been a Licensed Esthetician for over 3 years and have obtained multiple certifications in advanced esthetics including Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, HydraFacial MD, Laser Hair Reduction and Facial/Body Lymphatic Drainage.
As a graduation requirement at the Makeup Forever Academy in NYC, I worked hand and hand with a professional photographer in order to complete an Avant Guard and a Natural Glam inspired look on models. I saw the true importance of “skin preparation” and the effect it had on the individual, prior to a make-up application. It was then I realized that helping someone to look their best provided the self-esteem and confidence that they would use in all aspects of their life. This became my passion as I find it most rewarding.
The core values of Greenwich Medical Spa of Excellence, Integrity, Passion, Respect, Growth and People Focus are in total alignment with my own values. I also look forward to working together, as a Team Player with the staff of Greenwich Medical Spa, in adherence with this vision.
My favorite treatment at GMS is the Diamond Glow Facial. The Diamond Glow is a 3-1 customizable facial treatment that helps to target all of your skin concerns by extracting, exfoliating and infusing the skin with conditioned-specific serums. This treatment is ideal for clients who suffer from congestion, and want to help to minimize the appearance of fine-lines, wrinkles ,hyperpigmentation, and acne. I love being able to show my clients their “Glass Glowing Skin” post treatment.
The most important aspect of patient care is always listening to a patients concerns and needs, while always treating the patient with understanding and respect.
“Thank you for listening and being so knowledgeable. I love the way my skin looks and feels.”
I took a criminal justice program for 2 years in high school and was thinking about working in this field.
Some of my favorite places to travel to are Aruba and Las Vegas, Nevad
I have previously volunteered at a community center working with children during the summer.
