About Us

Welcome to Body Benefits and to our authoritative source of information on the changing range of Medical Laser, Dermal Fillers, Skincare, Weightloss and Cosmetic treatments available internationally and offered, in Ireland at our Galway clinic.

Jeanette Haynes founded Body Benefits in 1994

Jeanette Haynes founded Body Benefits in 1993

The Body Benefits ‘concept’ was conceived and established in 1993 by Jeanette Haynes.    She developed her own unique training methods and has continued to pioneer the development of  the business taking it to the forefront of the Aesthetic Beauty and Skincare industry.  It thrives on innovation and you can be sure that anything new in the Industry worldwide will have been well researched and vetted.

As specialists in the area of Aesthetic Beauty our aim is to offer a dedicated and totally professional service to all patients.  In tandem with our Medical Specialist we offer the best Treatments available in the market today.  Our main concentration is in the non-surgical area.

However as we are continually asked for advice and direction on a variety of Surgical procedures, we can now also offer sound, comprehensive advice on Cosmetic Surgery, serious skin disorders and many other conditions not covered in our Clinic.

If we cannot help directly then we certainly will put you on the right road.  We are totally dedicated to all our patients.

Although we are a strictly non-surgical clinic and neither offer nor advocate the use of surgery in Aesthetic practice, we offer a discreet service to those clients who wish to be referred for a number of surgical treatments.

Our aesthetic Nurse or Doctor can assess your requirements, advise on the best course of action, perform the relevant procedure if appropriate, or inform you of the alternative medical options which are currently available elsewhere.
