Clinique La Prairie


For 85 years, Clinique La Prairie, one of the world’s most exclusive medi-spa clinics, has been helping patients live better for longer

Set in the pretty lakeside town of Montreux and surrounded by parkland, patients are welcomed with the utmost discretion and accommodated in genteel suites.

Although best known for its pioneering rejuvenation therapy, patients retreat to the legendary clinic for much more than beauty treatments. A team of some 50 plus medical and paramedical specialists treat everything from mental health issues to reconstructive surgery and sleep disorders.

Facials, massages, and weight loss programmes are all available, but by far the most requested treatment is the signature Revitalisation programme: a six-day programme of exhaustive medical checks and consultations that culminate in the administration of the clinic’s top-secret elixir of youth. Said to strengthen the immune system, re-energise the body and boost disease resistance, 60% of patients return regularly for booster treatments.
