World renowned Dr Patrick Treacy opened the first Ailesbury Clinic in 2002. It was Ireland’s first dedicated medical aesthetic clinic providing IPL laser, HLA dermal fillers and botulinum toxin for both cosmetic and medical use, especially for blepharospasm, hyperhidrosis and migraine treatment.

The second Ailesbury Clinic opened in Ireland’s second largest city, Cork, in 2005. We were the first Irish clinic to treat HIV lipoatrophy patients with Sculptra (2001), BioAlcamid (2002) and Radiesse (2004).

We won ‘Best Clinic in Ireland’ (2005) for introducing an Australian model walk-in minor surgery – skin cancer screening service to Ireland which we still operate today.

We introduced thread lifting to Ireland (Contour Threads 2004) giving Irish patients a ‘face-lift’ without surgery, increasing safety and decreasing downtime.

We introduced Erbium YAG lasers (Mediblate 2003) and fractionalised CO2 (Lumenis ActiveFx 2006) for skin resurfacing and acne scarring. We introduced (Syneron Vela 3 2015), (Ultrashape Power 2015) (BTL Vanquish 2016) (BTL Elite 2016) and then BTL Exilis Ultra which incorporates the Ultra Femme 360™ Procedure and BTL Unison in 2018. We also introduced miraDry in 2018.

The Ailesbury Clinic moved to a much larger purpose-built clinic in David Lloyd’s Dublin in late 2016. In response we introduced Hyalual Redermalisation, Profhilo, the IMAGE Skincare Range, the REFORM Skincare Range and CALECIM®. We also extended the PERFECT skincare range and Agera Skincare Range.

Ailesbury Cork was been completely refurbished and modernised in 2018 complete with new cutting- edge machines and treatment options and additional medical practitioners.
