Mary Gaines Irish, MD
Meet Mary Gaines Irish, a compassionate and skilled aesthetic injector with a passion for enhancing lives and empowering her patients. Born and raised in Knoxville, TN, Mary Gaines's journey into medicine began at Samford University, where she earned her BS in Biochemistry and Biology, graduating in 2010. She continued her pursuit of healing at East Tennessee State University Quillen College of Medicine, obtaining her MD in 2014, and completed her residency at Baylor Scott and White Hospital in 2017. With 13 years of experience, Mary Gaines is certified in Botox and filler and offers a range of treatments, including microneedling, IPL, and laser hair removal.
As an aesthetic injector, my true passion lies in making patients feel good about themselves, fostering their sense of self-confidence and pride in both their inward and outward appearance. I take joy in discussing their unique goals and working together to achieve them. One of my favorite combinations for maintenance is Botox + Microneedling with a peel, complemented by an excellent skincare regimen, which personally helped me after having a baby and experiencing feelings of dullness and fatigue.
Embracing challenges, I continually expand my knowledge in various aspects of medicine, educating myself and my patients about skin health and overall wellness. I find fulfillment in making my patients' lives a little easier, whether it's through reducing the need to shave or helping them wear less makeup, all to embrace their natural beauty.
Beyond my work, I enjoy taking my son to the park, helping him learn how to ride a bike, golf, & draw. Beach days are a favorite of mine, where I spend time with my family and dog. You'll also find me skiing or going out for dinner with my boyfriend, Steve. When I'm not doing those things I also enjoy getting cocktails with my girlfriends!
