OUR STORY

The Story Behind HEALGEL®


Scientifically developed, effective skincare for all skin types HealGel was created by a team of leading British plastic and cosmetic surgeons with the help of a renowned award-winning dermatological biochemist. They wanted to create an effective skincare range that was results driven and helped target everyday skin problems.

As well as being the creators of HealGel, they are also the founders of MyBreast, an aesthetic plastic surgery practice.
