I’m Steph, I’m an Aesthetic Nurse Prescriber and the owner of Brannen Aesthetics in Newcastle. I graduated with an upper class degree in adult nursing in 2013 and have worked in the NHS ever since. I have worked across cardiology and general intensive care before becoming a nurse practitioner within cardiothoracic surgery in 2017, where I went on to become a nurse prescriber in 2019. Aesthetics is something I have always been interested in after suffering with acne in my early twenties and having chemical peels to help with scarring, it made me realise how important it is to feel confident in your own skin and I would love to help with that. I took the plunge and set up Brannen Aesthetics in January 2020 alongside my NHS career after completing a basic anti-wrinkle and dermal filler course in 2019. I have since gone on to complete further courses including a complications course and lip masterclasses. The best part of my role is watching my clients light up when they look in the mirror after treatment, it’s the best job satisfaction I could ask for! I specialise in injectables, for example sculpting beautifully defined lips with dermal filler, and I am very passionate about helping my clients fall in love with their skin using Obagi medical grade skin care and peels.
