New Tailor Made Facials For Your Skin
Pauline Burgener Haute Couture
We recently wrote about the Spa at the Dolder Grand’s new partner Dr Pauline Burgener (see article here) and the new products and services they offer. Probably the most revolutionary service is the Dr Pauline Burgener Haute Couture facial which is totally tailor made to your skin and for you.
I was lucky enough to experience this top luxury and very in-depth treatment at the Dolder Spa.

After being greeted at the Spa I then met with Dr Burgener’s therapist Ana, where personalization and high-technology come together. I came out not only with my face relaxed and glowing, but knowing substantially more about how to care for my skin and to protect it for the future.
Consultation and Diagnostic Part of Haute Couture
Ana explained that the Haute Couture Facial consists of two parts. During the first part your face is photographed by a sort of “light box” which is equipped with lots of mirrors on all sides and a Canon lens, as every imaginable angle is captured for the record. Next you have a full analysis of your skin with a range of sophisticated equipment.

Your skin’s hydration is measured, its elasticity, the lipid ratio, the extent of sun damage and even the regularity and the size of your pores.
Photographs of my face, (including zoom in photos of my skin greatly magnified) were then beamed up on the large screen and I saw my skin as I’ve probably never seen it before.
Ana took me through each aspect, interpreting both the results of the measurements from the equipment as well as the photo data.
The picture of the sun damage was particularly horrifying, as it showed dark speckles, a bit like dark freckles, which are invisible to the human eye, but which can be clearly seen below the surface. As Ana told me, you might forget that time you had terrible sun burn all those years ago, but your skin has a memory of its own and never forgets.
The next part of the treatment consists of a fabulous facial.
With the information that Ana had gained from the analysis, she chose selected Dr Burgener products to target different areas of my face. She then worked with her equipment and her hands to deliver a wonderful treatment which left my skin feeling softer but somehow also tighter and more radiant at the same time.
Personalised Skin Products Based on Your Results
If you were taking the full program of the Haute Couture service, the results of the data would then be sent to a team of dermatologists to draw up a recommendation which would be sent to Dr Burgener’s laboratory in Switzerland. They would then create a customised line of Haute Couture products to best protect your individual skin against ageing and future damage. The end products are completely made-to-measure to your skin to provide the best possible improvement and ongoing care.
Based on cutting-edge technology along with natural ingredients, the Haute Couture concept is an extremely customised, luxury service and obviously the Haute Couture is the “Rolls Royce” of the Dr Burgener offerings.
Clinical Study Results of Dr Burgener Haute Couture
In fact, clinical studies undertaken by Besançon University, have proven a clear improvement of the skin after just six weeks following the Dr Burgener Haute Couture program. Dr Burgener works together with dermatologists to draw recommendations that are then sent to her laboratories in Switzerland. Using a confocal microscope, they’ve shown visible improvement in the following areas:
- Reduction in the depth of wrinkles
- Improved firmness and tone
- Lifting of the oval of the face
- Improved glow and luminosity
- Refinement of skin complexion and texture.
Enjoy the Spa at The Dolder Grand at the Same Time
The other benefit of having your Dr Burgener treatment at the Spa at the Dolder Grand is that you also have the opportunity to indulge in the fabulous facilities of the hotel spa, whilst you’re there.
Not only saunas and steam rooms, but relaxation rooms an ice room and a beautiful pool and a hot tub on the balcony.
