DrGL Collagen Essence

24 February 2011


Isn’t this a thing of beauty? This emerald bottle, or more accurately, the contents within, has been the secret to my glowing skin lately. Ever since I started using DrGL’s collagen essence diligently twice a day, I have been receiving compliments about my “good skin”.

The name, Collagen Essence, is a misnomer actually, as this product contains Hyaluronic Acid, which occurs naturally in the deeper layers of our skin. Hyaluronic Acid is used in this formula for its perfect affinity with skin and for its amazing ability to hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water.

Here’s Dr Georgia Lee, creator of this “miracle water”, telling us more about it:

1. Why did you create the Collagen Essence?

Dr GL: I love the hydrating effect of Hyaluronic Acid when it is used as a filler for my patients and so decided to create a pure Hyaluronic Acid essence which is micronised so that absorption is assured and the product is locked in where it works best.

2. What are the ingredients in the essence?

Dr GL:  Hyaluronic acid

3. Who is it suitable for?

Dr GL: It is suitable for all skin types from oily and acne-prone skin to mature skin although in harsher dry weathers, a second layer of richer moisturiser may be needed.

4. What are some of the results after using the essence?

Dr GL:  The skin is immediately plumped up after a few days of continual usage. It glows  and is  firm from the hydrated skin cells. (absolutely true!)

5.. How much is it retailing for?

DrGL:  S$198 at Escentials, 3rd floor, Paragon

Relaunch of Dr Georgia Lee’s skincare – DrGL

28 January 2011

Dr Georgia Lee thanking everyone for showing up

When Dr Georgia Lee throws a party, the whole world shows up. And this was the case today at Escentials. Despite the downpour, head honchos of local media graced the soiree of the relaunch of her skincare line – now called DrGL. Of course, it also helps that your BFF is expert party organiser, Dr Frank Cintamani, who organised the Audi  Fashion Show last year.

With a slick new packaging and branding done by award-winning creative director, Theseus Chan, with visuals shot by renowned photographer, John Clang, DrGL looks ready to take the local (and regional) beauty market by storm. Her products boost quality ingredients like gingko and perform multi-tasking roles – for example, her blusher has anti-blemish  and anti-pigmentation properties.  She also has a new Eye Repair cream which comes in handy capsules that can be resealed after use.

Personally, I’m a big fan of her Collagen Essence which I use diligently twice a day and attribute my glowing skin to. In fact, when I told Dr Lee about it, she said that she’ll supply me enough to use on my body too! *Happy dance*

Not one to stinge on quality, the doorgift came in a gorgeous packaging and inside…another bottle of my favourite Collagen Essence! YAY!

DrGL is available at Escentials, 4th floor, Paragon. Here are more photos from DrGL’s event:

Dr Georgia Lee’s new medical spa – DrSpa

14 January 2011

You can't miss DrSpa, located below TLC, Dr Lee's clinic

A medical spa is a hybrid between a medical clinic and a day spa that operates under the supervision of a medical doctor. Medical spa menus vary, but you can usually get medical spa treatments like laser treatments, laser hair removal, IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments, microdermabrasion, photofacials, injectables like Botox and fillers, chemical peels and skin tightening. Most medical spas also tend to have a more clinical atmosphere than day spas even though they offer relaxing services like massages and body treatments. Medical spas are ideal for people who would like a more holistic experience. Unlike aesthetic clinics where you zip in and out after your treatment, customers at medical spas can choose to top up their laser treatments with a massage and enjoy the relaxing amenities of the spa. This new hybrid blends the best of both worlds – a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office.

Love the Lego-like effect of the logo

It was only a matter of time before this celebrity doctor opened a spa to cater to her burgeoning patients, some of whom don’t have the patience to wait three months to see her (yes, she has a waitlist!). Now, they can enjoy her treatments in the comfort of her new spa – DrSpa.

“I envisioned what I wanted in a spa and created treatments and services based on that, ” said Dr Lee. “For example, I don’t have the patience to lie down for more than one hour, and when I do a facial, I would also like extra treatments like a massage to lift my face. That’s why I have incorporated my facials with machine work whether it is to slim down or firm up. It is really a place for the time-pressed modern woman,” she explains.

One of the highlights at the stylish-looking spa is the hair treatment, where she has bought a special chair from Japan which allows the client to lie comfortably the entire time. The treatment uses patented technologies which Dr Lee has spent time researching, combined with growth factors to strengthen hair roots. A stickler for top-notch service, she has even concocted special teas that help slim the body, glossify hair and add a glow to your complexion. These teas will be customised and served complimentary to all clients before their treatment.

Treatment teas at DrSpa

Treatments at DrSpa don’t come cheap - with facials starting at $250 and a full body 90-minute massage going for $500. However, with extras thrown in like complimentary valet service, organic essential oils and even desserts made from bird’s nest, in the works. This is an indulgent experience that every woman should treat themselves to!

Aesthetics & Beauty Guide

Aesthetics & Beauty Guide (ABG) is the first aesthetics magazine from Singapore to bridge the information gap between medical professionals and the layman. In every issue, you will find detailed treatment reviews , the lowdown on the latest aesthetic treatments available and profiles of qualified medical professionals – basically, your go-to guide for all things aesthetics.

I started last year in my personal pursuit to look for the best aesthetic treatments for myself. My partnership with ABG has allowed me to share my vast experience with a wider pool of women (and men!).  In the name of “work”, I’ve reviewed almost 20 treatments and looking at my skin now – smooth, radiant and taut, I’m definitely a big believer that aesthetic treatments can help you get better skin and maintain your complexion for many years to come.

In this inaugural issue of ABG, you’ll get a crash course in Aesthetics 101, reviews of the latest and most effective aesthetic treatments, hear from Dr Georgia Lee as she talks about her new skincare range, get all your acne questions answered by renown dermatologist, Dr Joyce Lim, get the skinny on the newest slimming treatments to get rid of your wobbly bits, and many more health and beauty tips.

Cosmeceuticals – the perfect marriage?

Dr Georgia Lee

Cosmeceuticals represent the marriage of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Examples of products typically labeled as cosmeceuticals include anti-aging creams, serums and moisturisers. Cosmeceuticals are cosmetic products with biologically active ingredients purporting to have medical or drug-like benefits.

And, who better to create these products than doctors themselves.  Several doctors have come up with their own skincare range to better serve their patients as well as tap on the burgeoning skincare industry.

They include:

Dr Georgia Lee is at it again…

14 April 2010

Dr Georgia Lee is known in the media for her penchant for designer labels and flamboyance. However, those who are close to her will also attest to her generosity – both in the material sense and her genuine desire to help people. Case in point, her latest fund-raising fashion show below:

Invitation to Dr Georgia Lee’s party

7 February 2010


Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ll know who Dr Georgia Lee is. She is Singapore’s undisputed anti aging queen and celebrities flock to her in droves to maintain their looks. The first doctor to break news about the latest face-lifting machine, Ulthera (on my anti aging website, as well as purchase the $250,000 dream machine, patients of this doyenne can count on her to always be on the forefront of anti aging treatments.

Besides work, Dr Lee is also a doctor who sure knows how to have a good time! Whether it is attending the most stylish party in town or hosting her own shindig, you can count on her to show up looking spectacular. Not one to shy from fashion trends, be it D&G pyjamas or Balenciaga’s Bladerunner-esque tights, she wears them all with panache.

Ok, my mind is blank this week, hence this mundane post…

I was invited by Dr Georgia Lee to attend a Louis Vuitton party at the Ion today.

Dr Georgia Lee and I

I’ve known Dr Georgia Lee for more than 10 years. Back when she was a General Practitioner and when I was living near Holland Village. She’s always looked great and I would look forward to seeing what she’d wear – be it a Vietnamese dao or a chic dress.

We’ve kept in touch and she’s remained my gynae, even though she does not do gynae services for patients now.
It’s wonderful to see how successful she’s become as an aesthetic doctor, but it is not at all surprising. Dr Georgia Lee is one of the warmest and most helpful people I know. She takes the time to attend to you and when I got married four years ago, she gave me a complimentary IPL session.  She’s also been extremely supportive of all my business ventures and I am very grateful for all her help!

If you are not aware, she’s started her own skincare line, which I received today in my goodie bag. Inside, there is a cleaner, scrub, toner, moisturiser and blotting paper, and I can’t wait to try them out! In fact, I will probably review them here. Watch this space!

p.s. It’s been a month of cancelled appointments and clashing schedules, hence the lack of reviews. Thanks for your patience. I am currently working on an exciting Anti Aging section featuring one of the most innovative products I came across at the Aesthetics Asia Exhibition and Convention :)
