“ I am delighted with the results of my full face Thermage, particularly the contour of my chin which is much more defined – I was beginning to show the beginnings of a double-chin before treatment”
“Dear Dr Rakus,
I just wanted to say a great BIG thank you to you and your staff for the fantastic experience I had at the clinic today.
As a first-time patient I must say how impressive I found the whole experience. The team are all so personable, knowledgeable and expert. I felt in safe hands throughout my visit. My Visia imaging to start was eye-opening and gave me a really clear and detailed insight and understanding of what my skin needs and how best to treat it – thank you! Pelleve was actually an amazingly comfortable and relaxing treatment and I experienced an immediate benefit; tightening and a smoother look. Having never experienced the legendary lip treatment from The London Lip Queen I was nervous but felt perfectly at ease and was absolutely ecstatic with the results. It was wonderful that you took such care and consideration to provide such a perfectly natural effect and now I have tried it, I will never go anywhere else for this treatment!!"
"Just been to buy some new make-up from Space NK and the girl couldn't believe my skin.... 'no pores, no wrinkles, youthful....it looks like the skin of a 30 year old'. Thank you Obagi ;-)”

“Thermage is wonderful! After years of having a saggy abdomen Thermage has firmed everything up for me. I can wear bikinis with confidence. I love it!"
"I would like to highly recommend Dr Rakus’s Fraxel treatment. I have had a course of 6 sessions over the past 2 years and have found the results to be absolutely amazing. My skin texture is very smooth and soft plus the small fine lines around my eyes and mouth have almost disappeared. I would highly recommend this treatment!"
"I have been a client of Dr Rita Rakus for 4 years. My loyalty is based upon quality of service, in every way. Dr Rakus not only puts me at ease, she also provides a pain-free procedure with great results. I attend The Orangery in Bath which is a clean, modern environment with exceptional staff members who are polite, friendly and always greet with a smile. I would recommend both Dr Rakus and The Orangery to my family and friends, something that I believe speaks volumes in itself."
With over 20 years of experience specialising in non-invasive cosmetic solutions for face and body rejuvenation, and dubbed by the media as "The London Lip Queen", it's no wonder Dr Rita Rakus has attracted a following of famous names and faces to her Knightsbridge clinic. Dr Rakus is one of the first experts to launch Ultherapy in the UK, runs the 5th largest Thermage® practice in the world and has been awarded the Black Diamond Award by SOLTA Medical because of it. She is one of the busiest practitioners for dermal fillers and muscle-inhibitors in the UK. Her Knightsbridge clinic is the first official centre for Pellevé in the UK and in 2012 received the Pellevé Glide Safe award for clinical and aesthetic excellence.
Recent lustrous ladies treated by Dr Rakus include stars of stage and screen, business mavens, models, presenters and even mountain climbers. Clients include Karren Brady, Lisa Butcher, Amanda Holden, Nicky Hambleton-Jones, Annabelle Bond OBE, Nancy Dell’Olio and celebrity psychic & TV personality Sally Morgan.
Dr Rita Rakus says:
“More frequently, I am asked for cosmetic solutions with a gradual effect that is not immediately noticeable. This is especially important to those in the spotlight. Increasingly, women want to have non-invasive procedures to get ahead in business, feel fresher and more confident and quick-fixes can, and do ignite embarrassing discussions amongst friends, family and colleagues. My patients do not want to be asked what they've had done at the dinner table or across the boardroom table! Those effective treatments that achieve results over a longer period of time like Thermage® are very, very popular and make up a large percentage of the treatments I carry out.”
Dr Rakus offers a wide variety of highly effective treatments in her Knightsbridge clinic (which is opposite Harrods) to combat the most common complaints such as poor skin tone, lines or loose skin on the face and body. As well as providing Juvéderm/Restylane and Botox for the treatment of lip enhancement, lines, wrinkles and excess sweating, she provides state-of-the-art technology including:
"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."
"With JuvédermUltra I was very impressed especially since my husband had no idea what procedure I had! It was painless and very effective."
“My treatment is the best investment any woman could make for herself and is better than a week in Spain”.
"I'm 44 now. My friends are always asking what I do to keep my skin such good shape and why I don't have any wrinkles. I tell them I've been going to Dr Rakus for 10 years. Even those who were formally against having anything done - ever - have now asked me for her number!"
“My Thermage treatment has made my post-menopausal skin feel pre-menopausal again - plumper, tighter and glowing”
“I personally found the Thermage treatment painless overall with some tenderness under the chin/neck area, however, nowhere near the ‘cigarette stubbing’ pain level I had read about.!"
"I knew I wanted to have some work done, but I wanted to know I was
in good hands. I sought impartial advice and met with Wendy Lewis, the New York aesthetic consultant.
Dr Rakus - she was right. I know I'm in safe hands and my treatments have been effective without side effects and have drawn many compliments".
