Sligo Woman in Business Feature

It’s been nearly 4 years since Claudia McGloin moved back to Sligo after 14 years in London to set up the Claudia McGloin Clinic, an Advanced Medical Aesthetic and Colonic Hydrotherapy Clinic. Since then she has proved that she is an epitome for female entrepreneurs as she runs a very busy & successful clinic which is now one of Ireland’s leading Medical Aesthetic Clinics.

The clinic specialises in Advanced Medical Aesthetic Non-Surgical & Minor Surgical Procedures as well as Orthopaedic and Vascular Procedures.


The Claudia McGloin Clinic was Runner Up in last years ‘Best New Business’ category in the Sligo Business Awards and now the clinic is a finalist in the ‘Best Clinic Ireland’ category of the Aesthetic Awards 2015 which will take place in London in December. She has also been nominated for 'Aesthetic Nurse of the Year' at the British Journal of Nursing Awards 2016.  


Claudia has patients traveling from all over Ireland, Northern Ireland & the UK which also include a few celebrities that absolutely love her subtle & natural treatments. 

Nicknamed the PRP Queen, Claudia is well known for her Dracula Therapy procedure and has recently co-created a brand new medical procedure with Dr Daniel Sister called Rejuvula for Vagina Rejuvenation which is aimed at menopausal women who also suffer with Urine Incontinence.

She has received worldwide media coverage with this procedure and has been featured in the Daily Mail, Cosmopolitan, Closer, Metro, New York Post to name but a few and has also been asked to appear on ITV's This Morning.


She is currently the only medical practitioner offering this procedure which is only available in Sligo and in London where Claudia works on a weekly basis.

She is about to commence training doctors in this procedure at the end of this month and has also contributed to a medical book as well as medical journals.


With lots more up her sleeve for the coming months, this is one Woman in Business to watch.

Skin Care Sales...

One of the big misconceptions that people have about Skin Specialists is that we are sales people trying to sell Skin Care Products to you as well as Skin Treatments. This couldn't be further from the truth! I'm a Medical Professional with little sales experience apart from a short time working part time at weekends in Penney's in Sligo while I was in secondary school!

I do sell Skin Care at the clinic but I also sell a variety of Medical Brands so, I'm not affiliated to one particular company. I personally mix and match but I'm using what's suited to my Skin and I tailor each product to individual needs by prescribing what is needed for your Skin Type and Skin Condition. 

I have researched Medical Skin Care not only for myself but for my patients and clients so, that I can bring you the very best of treatments to the clinic. I have tried and tested them all and am happy to say that only brands that I feel comfortable using on my face and ones that work will be ones that I use daily in the clinic. 

The truth is the Skin Care compliments the Skin Treatments giving you better results. I only ever use clinically proven products and the results of these products used either on their own or following treatments speak for themselves. 

You don't need to have several Skin products at home and you certainly don't need to spend hours in the bathroom in the morning or at night! A simple but effective Skin Care routine is all you need to keep your Skin looking fresh, healthy and hydrated. Not many people know this but the most important Skin Care product is actually an SPF - Sun Protection Factor. 

At the Claudia McGloin Clinic, we can tailor a good simple yet effective Skin Care routine for you and help you achieve the flawless radiant complexion you've always wanted all year round.

Get Your Skin Autumn Ready with Skinboosters

You can't go back in time but your skin can.

Inevitably, our skin quality deteriorates over time. Our ways, our habits, our genes and even the weather are all factors that influence the state of our skin. For some the impact is major, for others it's less so but for all of us the change is (or will be) apparent. Skinboosters, consisting of Hyaluronic Acid are a way of naturally revitalising the skin, making you look the age you feel. 

It may sound like magic but we call it science.

Over time, the quality of your skin changes - collagen and elastic fibres disintegrate and the spread and function of the body's own Hyaluronic acid changes, making your skin drier, rougher and less elastic. While many beauty products and treatments pamper your skin on the surface to treat these symptoms, Skinboosters restore from within. They create luminous skin in a natural way by gently and naturally smoothing the skin from the inside. By adding Hyaluronic acid through injections under the skin surface, Skinboosters restore the hydro balance and improve the structure, firmness and elasticity of the skin, giving it new energy. 

 Skinboosters can be used to not only improve the general skin quality of your face but also to improve exposed and sensitive areas such as your neck, décolletage and hands as as areas with Acne-Scarred Skin. Skinboosters can also be used proactively which makes them a suitable beauty treatment even for those not yet experiencing the full effects of ageing skin. 

A Skinboosters treatment is more about care than correction and the results are visible without changing the shape of your face. Clinical studies demonstrate that Skinboosters significantly increase skin elasticity and improve skin structure. Thinner, fragile skin also becomes thicker and firmer to better withstand the wear and tear of everyday life. Skinboosters are not surgical and they are not toxins. They are a natural beauty method to restore and maintain your skins quality and lustre. 

Unlike wrinkle correction, treatment with Skinboosters is a process in which the skin quality is gradually built up through injections of multiple micro-deposits of long lasting Hyaluronic acid just under the skin. Though many of the beneficial effects can be seen after one treatment, three 'start up' sessions, two to four weeks apart are necessary to give full results.

The day I injected Count Dracula himself...

So everyone knows how much I love Dracula PRP Therapy and if you didn't - you do now! The results I get from these treatments are phenomenal but little did I know the real test would come in treating the pioneer of PRP Dr Daniel Sister. 

Daniel had a fall and fractured his Radial Head - Elbow in layman's terms! 

When I met him recently in London for a joint interview we were doing with a magazine, he was still complaining of pain in his Elbow.  He had also lost some movement and despite exercising, he was unable to bring his Elbow upwards towards his face! It was PRP time!

I injected him 3 times - directly into the Elbow joint at the fracture site and the other two times directly into the muscles in his forearm. He was a model patient and didn't flinch despite the pain he was in! That's good considering we medical professionals make the worst patients! 

Daniel called me the next day to tell me he was actually holding the phone to his ear! He had noted a huge improvement 6 hours after treatment! We were amazed at how quickly he was seeing results but we both knew that PRP was amazing! I've seen dramatic improvements with PRP and Sports Injuries & Spinal conditions but each time I do a treatment it still blows my mind at how quickly people are seeing results!

Daniel has continued to notice improvement and is about 90% better today! Here's the link to Daniel's blog about his experience
