As part of our Wellbeing Week, we’re focusing on brands and products created and endorsed by some of the biggest names in medicine. Read on to discover the best of the best in expert beauty devices.
The Dental Expert: FOREO ISSA 2
A silicone based toothbrush, the FOREO ISSA 2 lasts twice as long as a nylon brush and comes with an inbuilt tongue scraper. Endorsed by one of the UK’s leading dentists, founder of Harley Street Dental Studio, Dr. Mark Hughes says,
“It’s one of the greatest innovations in toothbrush technology in the last 60 years. It’s incredibly hygienic, is made from medical-grade silicone and also had PBT grade polymer in the centre for really effective plaque removal.” - Dr Mark Hughes
The natural properties of silicone and PBT polymer harbour less bacteria for more hygienic brush heads and overall oral health. The durable, hygienic brush head lasts twice as long compared to nylon toothbrushes. A built-in interval timer prompts you to brush a new quadrant of your mouth every 30 seconds so you’re getting the most out of your toothbrush with every use.
Ideal for on the go use, the ISSA 2 is USB re-chargeable so there’s no charging dock needed and after just one hour of charging, you can get up to a whole year’s use.

A revolutionary LED mask that tackles a plethora of skincare concerns, MZ Skin was founded by Oculoplastic Surgeon and leading facial aesthetics doctor, Dr. Maryam Zamani.
"I conceived MZ Skin as a doctor-led brand made for women by a woman. For me, anti-ageing skincare is about revealing, enhancing and protecting.” - Dr. Maryam Zamani

Using 5 different coloured LED lights, each light is designed to treat a different skincare concern. Whether you want to calm, rejuvenate or tackle hyper-pigmentation, it can all be treated with one multi-purpose device.
The Skincare Expert: GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool
Allowing you to recreate a salon-standard dermarolling treatment at home, this innovative device by BeautyBio was created by father and daughter duo Dr. Terry James and Jamie O’Banion.
“Having grown up in the home of a physician involved in clinical skincare development, I was privy to cutting-edge products and learned early on how to select performance skincare products.” - Jamie O’Banion
GloPRO visibly improves your skin's tone, firmness and appearance in just 30 days. The patented technology behind the GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool promotes micro-rejuvenation deep within the skin. The MicroTips dermaroller delicately parts the skin cells to boost volume for firmer, smoother and younger-looking skin. This versatile device is ideal for both using alone and alongside your favourite serums and creams to power up your skincare regime.
What's more you can interchange the MicroTips between the Eye, Lip, Body and Rose Quartz Roller.
The Acne Expert: Lustre Pure Light Pro Acne Treatment
Used by celebrity doctors like Dr Hilary Jones and a number of leading UK acne clinics, the device uses powerful Blue Light Therapy to deeply penetrate the skin and kill the bacteria that causes acne and prevents other spots forming. Scientists have proven that blue light with a wave length of 415nm can kill acne causing bacteria, without damaging the skin whatsoever.
We love that the Lustre Pure Light Pro Acne Treatment is hands free, and that you can get on with other things whilst you're using it. Plus, once you're finished with the 12 week course, you can use it for any sudden outbreaks too.
