Today we’d like to introduce you to Renee Moran.
Renee, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
At a young age, I knew I wanted a career in medicine and wanted to be a physician. My mother is a registered nurse and used to take me with her to visit her patients, so the hospital is a place I always felt comfortable in. I was pre-medicine at Boston College and went on to attend medical school in Arizona. I knew I wanted to return home to Boston for my training as there is no better place to study and learn medicine in my mind. I completed an internship in internal medicine, residency in anesthesiology and then went on to subspecialize by completing a pain medicine fellowship. I knew I wanted a procedurally based specialty as I am good with my hands. I am now a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist and subspecialize as an Interventional Pain Medicine Physician with Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC). Early on in my career, I began treating patients with chronic migraine headaches with botulinum toxin (Botox) injections, so it was an easy transition for me to enter the aesthetics world. I was immediately drawn to the asesthetics aspect and once I started treaing patients, I realized how pleased they were with the results. As an anesthesiologist and interventional pain physician, I am highly trained and skilled in procedures and injections so am able to use my procedural skills to produce “natural” results and enhance one’s own beauty.
After developing a passion for the aesthetics aspect I went on to receive certification in cosmetic neurotoxins, dermal fillers, chemical peels and microneedling among others.
Throughout my career, my top priority has always been to ensure the patients’ best interests. I enjoyspending my free time attending lectures and conferences to keep up with the latest techniques to effectively monitor and enhance patient care, protect patient confidentiality, and evaluate safe and optimal diagnoses and treatments.
I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and two daughters, exercise and fitness, travel and exploring our beautiful city.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I have experienced both successes and hardships and while the successes have been wonderful, I have learned a great deal along the way thus far. Starting my own practice has been a learning process and with the right resources and networking, I feel that while it can be overwhelming, it is so rewarding! Medical school certainly prepares you to be a good physician, but it does not teach you the business skills that you need to maintain a practice. When I first started exploring opportunities, a chance to work in conjunction with another outfit fell through. It seemed from the start it was a great opportunity and I was told all the right things but as it progressed it just didn’t feel right I passed on the opportunity and in hindsight it was a great decision. I was upset at first but realized everything happens for a reason. It became clear that I was going to begin this journey on my own, leveraging my skillset and marketing my brand. I have had a ton of early successes. The feedback from clients has been positive. I have successfully hosted 2 aesthetic events and worked with local vendors and I am beginning to hit my stride. My advice would be to do it the right way. Make sure you cover all bases when you explore getting started. Legal, insurance, branding- it all matters. Represent yourself in a way that’s credible and always do the right thing.
what should we know about Dr. Moran Medical Aesthetics, LLC? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I specialize in medical aesthetics. I currently do consultations for clients and am able to formulate a treatment plan that suits their aesthetic needs. The services that I provide are neurotoxin injections (wrinkle relaxers including Botox and Dysport and also for hyperhidrosis-increased sweating), medical grade chemical peels, collagen induction therapy (microneedling), dermal filler (volume loss) and skin analyses. I sell medical grade skincare products as well. What sets me apart from other injectors is the years of training that was procedural based and having a real eye for beauty. I am able to enhance one’s own beauty and make recommendations on how to maintain it. I tend to practice on the conservative side especially for those who have never had any injections in the past. I am most proud when clients come to me to fix mistakes that have been done by other providers and they leave feeling confident and refreshed.
It would be great to hear about any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve used and would recommend to others.
I love viewing social media like Instagram and Facebook to check out the latest beauty trends. I am involved with a closed facebook group for physician mother’s and also one for physicians who practice aesthetic medicine. The camaraderie and support within these groups have really been great. I also enjoy listening to podcasts for female entrepreneurs and businesswomen.
