RENEW Your Hope for Healing

Our Core Beliefs

Effective healthcare begins by believing our patients.

Patients are responsible for their own health journey.

Knowledge is the most powerful tool we can give our patients.

A Journey to Healing must include an exploration of Mind, Body, AND Spirit.

Helen, Aesthetician

My name is Helen Simmons, married for over 30 years and a mum of two grown boys. I obtained my esthetics license after being diagnosed with melanoma cancer in 2004, and began my career as an esthetician in June 2006 (in South Carolina). Since then, I have attended many additional advanced skin care courses and esthetics educational training in the science of the skin. I believe the esthetics industry offers an on-going learning experience, and keeping up with available knowledge is key to being the best esthetician possible. My passion for skin care makes my job an enjoyable experience each day. I have specialized training in Rezenerate Nano needling, chemical peels, lash lifts, brow henna tattoos, Coolifting treatments, Celluma Light Therapy, laser, waxing, and many facial techniques. I find it very fulfilling to connect with my patients, establish trust, and give personal attention to their needs.
