Rising Stars: Meet Stephanie Tran, RN, BSN; Utopia MedSpa-Franklin A. Rose, MD; VOYAGE HOUSTON


Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephanie Tran RN, BSN

Hi Stephanie, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I graduated nursing school in 2015 in Dallas, started in the ICU for a year, and learned a lot but did not like the long hours and random days of the week. I then found a medspa that was willing to invest in me and put me through training.

I worked there for 2 years and worked in post-op at an outpatient endoscopy clinic at Baylor Scott and white in Plano. I started a family with my husband and moved to Houston in 2018, worked at a medspa for 4 years, and I am now starting a new path at Utopia Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa, under the direction of Franklin A. Rose, M.D.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was for the most part. The struggle is that in this Aesthetic field, there is always so much to learn. No matter how long you’ve been in the industry, you can never learn enough. Techniques, and products are always changing, and there are no two persons who are alike, so each case is unique.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am Aesthetic Nurse Injector who specializes in facial balancing with a natural approach using dermal fillers, neurotoxins, and skin care. I am most known for my natural approach to freshening up the face.

A lot of patients come in to tell me they do not want to look like a particular celebrity or look as if they have had work done, they just want a more refreshed look which is exactly how I plan to help them look. I will turn people down and away if I do not feel they and I are a fit for each other and do not have the same expectations or goals. I build trust with my patients.

Risk-taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
Taking risks is always a learning process; whether you choose to take it or not, you’ll still learn from it. Like, taking the risk of a difficult, unique case on a patient. You take the risk but you also give yourself and the client expectations so neither is disappointed in the end. You want to aim high, but only high enough for you to reach.

There will always be more opportunities to reach even higher. During those steps up, you learn and it makes you better for it. You don’t have to take two steps forward because if you have to take one step back you would have wasted time. If you took one step forward, you master that, then you take another step forward, well then you’re two steps ahead of where you were!
