The Forever Laser Institut is the epitome of discreet luxury. It’s a vast (600sqm) swish, stylish space with 19 treatment rooms each filled with contemporary artworks and flooded with natural daylight. This is a family business and the family head is Dr Luigi Polla, well known as the Swiss authority on Botox and fillers. Book well in advance and join the throngs of Geneva ladies investing in age-defying treatments, from the signature Botox to cosmetic surgery options. Laser treatments are extensive too, with options including Fraxel Laser and specialist tattoo removal. New to their range is an advanced new laser called Picosure which promises revolutionary results. The central location makes it easy to pop in for a quick treatment, and the brightening peels and express facials could make for a lunchtime lift. Be prepared to invest: this kind of high-end beauty luxury doesn't come cheap, and it’s worth checking their website for regular promotions.
If you are looking for a beauty salon, Geneva has some of the best in Switzerland. It’s not hard to feel occasionally under-coiffed when stood next to the manicured, elegant ladies (and gents) of Geneva, particularly those with equally groomed small dogs poking out of designer bags. But luckily there are plenty of places in the city to get yourself plucked, waxed and scrubbed into shape.
On the gentle end of the price scale, several city centre day spas such as Urban Mirage are ideal for a quick mid-shop mani-pedi, holistic massage or facial. While bods in need of more serious attention can check in to a high-end beauty salon like Forever Laser for cosmetic improvements including fillers, Botox, peels and laser treatments.
