"Thermage, not only did it work but I could go out to lunch straight afterwards without a problem."*
"I first had treatments with Dr RITA RAKUS many years ago , and have since re located to Los Angeles. I have tried many different doctors and surgeons around the world for Botox and filler, however I always return to Rita. She is totally superior and I get results like this nowhere else."*
“I visited your Hans Road clinic at the end of December and again on 11th January for Botox injections. I am very happy with the emerging results and would also like to commend your staff for the professional yet caring way I was treated and I will definitely be contacting your office to repeat the procedure in a couple of months time. It may be that the next time I come in I have more areas treated!”*
