As a trained GP with a PG Cert in Dermatology, numerous aesthetics qualifications and a business degree under her belt, Dr. Laura Lenihan, the owner of Galway’s leading GP led skin health clinic, is only just getting started. Her skincare clinic on the Upper Clybaun Road in Galway City opened in 2020 and already counts many Galwegians amongst her devoted patients. Following much demand this year she expanded her reach to include a new clinic in Dublin.

Her medical-led advice is renowned and sought after among the local community, across the country and indeed worldwide. Dr. Laura’s work has been published in various publications such as: the RTE Guide, Tatler, Image and RSVP amongst many others. She is also a Key Opinion Leader for well respected brands including La Roche Posay and SkinCeuticals and as well as being an Ambassador for Obagi. 

When training as a GP, Dr. Laura always had an interest in skincare, but found the medical world lacking in knowledge on skincare routines or ingredients to complement medical based therapies. Often treatment was just that, without any thought given to preventing recurrence of issues. She uses an integrated approach to her skincare plans mixing prescription products (when required) with medical grade skincare and treatments. This allows her to get the best results for her patients and maintain these results over time. This is what makes her approach so unique in the ever changing aesthetic world.

Each patient meets with her directly meaning they get personalised, considered, and professional one-to-one care and a tailor made skincare plan they can follow at home. When deciphering what will suit each person individually, Dr. Laura makes informed medical led decisions that are best for you and your skin. Working alongside her is a team of therapists who she had trained to the highest standards.

Due to her medical background Dr. Laura has a special interest in the treatment of acne and rosacea, offering treatment plans in line with the most up to date clinical guidance.. In addition to this, she also treats general skincare concerns such as anti ageing and pigmentation. She is deeply knowledgeable in how people respond to products, treatments, and ingredients differently. When it comes to skincare, Dr. Laura strongly advocates that there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Most of all, she is passionate about getting the best solutions for her patients through results driven methods and personalised medically focused skincare. 

Treatments offered at the clinic include skin consultations, bespoke corrective peels, SkinPen microneedling, laser services for rosacea, pigmentation, collagen induction therapy, anti-wrinkle injections, mesotherapy and Profhilo. In addition, the clinic will be the first to bring the Secret RF to the west of Ireland. This groundbreaking device offers the latest advances in skin rejuvenation.

The clinic stocks some of the world’s leading skincare brands, all carefully selected by Dr. Laura for their efficacy which includes Obagi, SkinCeuticals, SkinBetter Science, iS Clinical, Heliocare and Colorescience. This means that your skin is treated to both the best service and care using science led, results driven products.
