Epicure - - STYLE BUZZ -

Em­body­ing both style and sub­stance, Dr Ge­or­gia Lee, 49, isn’t just a celebrity doc­tor with a killer wardrobe. Be­hind the pol­ished de­meanour is an aes­thetic physi­cian who takes her pro­fes­sion very se­ri­ously. Be­sides the aes­thetic prac­tice she’s been con­sci­en­tiously run­ning for al­most 20 years, Dr Lee has also spent the last nine years build­ing her epony­mous beauty em­pire. It started quite by ac­ci­dent in the early noughties, when the stat­uesque doc­tor de­vel­oped an al­ler­gic re­ac­tion to an an­tibi­otic that left her with postin­flam­ma­tion pig­men­ta­tion on the right side of her face. She in­vested money to de­velop her own prod­uct to tackle the prob­lem and af­ter six years of in­ten­sive R&D, she launched her first range of skin­care in 2009 (she re­branded it to DRGL in 2011).

Avail­able in Sin­ga­pore, Thai­land and on­board three air­lines, DRGL now has a stable of some 40 or so prod­ucts, and falls un­der A Dr­brand – an um­brella com­pany Dr Lee set up to con­sol­i­date all her brands: DRGL skin­care, Drhair hair prod­ucts and the Drspa chain.
