BOONVILLE, Michigan (WTVA) — People interested in skincare can work without a four-year college degree.
However, you must take a certification course. (Please note that estheticians and estheticians are different.)
Becoming an esthetician is one of the career paths offered by Regenerative Health Services. Regenerative Health Services aims to provide one-stop health and wellness for people, including daily caffeine intake.
“This is Regenerative Health Solutions. Some people call us Fuel or Fuel’s Regenerative Health. It’s basically two businesses under one roof,” said owner Amy Scott. explained.
Fuel and Regenerative Health opened in Boonville in 2018, and Scott says it’s grown over time.
Fuel has health drinks and supplements.
The grand reopening of Regenerative Health is scheduled for September 1, 2023, Scott said.
“We do massage therapy, we offer aesthetics, and we even have nurses working in functional medicine,” Scott said.
“We do intravenous therapy, probably people who have had COVID-19, who have had a prolonged COVID-19 infection from which they cannot recover, and who want to strengthen their immune system.”
She also says she wants to help weight loss patients.
Scott explained that she is from Mississippi but is now officially signed to Regenerative Medical Group in Orange, Calif.
This means she can bring medical procedures and functional medicine from there to Mississippi, but her full dream will take time.
“How do they treat cancer? If someone here gets cancer, they get chemotherapy and they die with radiation. So they send someone’s blood and they send serum to re-inject that person. They know how to fight that cancer, and they need their blood and cancer cells to do that.It’s a whole other world,” Scott said. “I’m kind of passionate about making this happen here because I’ve seen my family die of cancer. I didn’t know that. My grandparents were sick. When we did what others were doing.”
Patience Holmes is on the skin care path. She explained that she had just graduated from esthetician school.
“The reason I wanted to take this job was because I didn’t want to go to college for four years, I didn’t want to leave the house, and I became interested in skin care when I was about 12.” ‘ said Holmes.
It is a 600-hour program lasting about one year.
“It’s a part-time program at the moment, but they want to open it full-time. It’s actually at the Tupelo Beauty Academy in Tupelo, Mississippi,” Holmes said. “Actually, I’m just talking about facials, all skin care, and full body waxing.”
Holmes says the program taught him all the basics.
“Skin cleansing, acne treatments, aging treatments, things like that…and in the future I’d like to touch on microneedle treatments, and maybe even make-up permanent tattoos.”
Scott said Regenerative Health Solutions will soon start accepting applications for some open positions, including receptionist jobs.
She added that she is working on completing the website for Regenerative Health, but those interested can find the business on Facebook and Instagram right now.
