5 luxury medispas for a beauty makeover

As the name suggests, medispas combine the pleasant, welcoming feel of a luxury spa with the presence of a real medical team: Detox and Botox? Not quite, because most methods are natural and non-invasive. We go there to enjoy a golden interlude and set the record straight. Here’s a selection of 4 of Europe’s best-known venues.

Medispas specialize in aesthetic medicine

What is a medispa?

Beyond the traditional wellness offering, medispas are temples of well-being where people come first and foremost for a rejuvenating cure, taking stock of their health, working on weight loss and looking after their appearance. Beauticians, sports and wellness coaches, and doctors are all under one roof. In practice, these are personalized cures lasting from a few days to several weeks in very comfortable hotels.

So there’s a scientific approach and treatments that can be aesthetic (micro-dermabrasion, botox or hyaluronic acid injections), ophthalmological and orthodontic. Medispas are particularly popular with celebrities who want to give themselves a makeover while enjoying the anonymity of being abroad.

The hotel owes its reputation to the method developed by a Frenchman, Henri Chenot, who cleverly combined Western, Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine to create what he calls “biontology”, a concept that aims to embody a new science of well-being. More than just losing weight, it’s about cleansing the body, both physically and mentally. According to Dr Chenot, this method “helps you stay young as long as possible and age in good health”.
