"Dr Rita Rakus Is the Best!
When I decided to apply dermal fillers for my fine lines, I have researched for the best cosmetic doctor in London, and this is how I've came to Dr Rita Rakus's Clinique. Beside her most helpful and the kindest staff in the Clinique, Dr Rita Rakus herself is extremely professional, kind, guiding and she does certainly make sure that, you will receive the best treatment. She had done my Juvéderm Pus fillers, Pelleve at my first time in the Clinique and in my other visit also done my Botox as well. I am extremely happy with all my results and it is for certain that Dr Rita Rakus is the Queen in the cosmetic treatments field. From now on, whenever I need a non-surgical cosmetic treatment, I know that DR Rakus's Clinique will be my only and the most reliable destination"

“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!”

Here's what June R had to say about Dr. Rita Rakus on WhatClinic.com under
"Botox & Juvéderm"
Were you pleased with the treatment?
The treatment went very well. Dr Rakus is brilliant, so efficient and quick and the results are always excellent, very natural. I feel very safe in her hands. Customer service is excellent, all the staff are friendly, they take great care of you afterwards. The clinic itself is very comfortable, welcoming & extremely convenient across the road from Harrods. Quite expensive if you are having filler, but quite reasonable if only Botox.


“The Botox® looks fantastic – it has really made a difference. I was talking to my husband last night about City Bonuses being down so much next year and what we could cut down on. As I said to him “we can do without the trip to Mauritius next year, but the Botox® will be the last thing to go!!”

Claire P., aged 43


"After many years of being treated by
Dr Rakus
- she knows my face better than I ...!

Perfection, skill and knowledge can only portray this beautiful woman who's understanding of how to improve and enhance a lady's face is quite remarkable.

The latest Salt-A-Peel™ combined with complementary skin care products dramatically change the texture and feel to the skin.

Dr Rakus has enhanced this treatment with her speciality of 'lip so kissable' RESTYLANE injections and/or Botox®.

Dr Rakus will only give treatment when she thinks it is necessary and I would personally therefore put my face in her experienced hands without hesitation!

I walk out of her sanctuary with an air of confidence and self assurance which is surely all worthwhile after waiting to find space in her very tight scheduled diary."

Here's what Isabelle had to say about Dr. Rita Rakus on WhatClinic.com under
"Lip Enhancement"

Dr Rita Rakus knows about lips! She was very confident during the procedure and gave me the result I wanted to have. My asymmetrical lips are now corrected and they look beautiful and so natural. The only downside is that her filler treatments are a bit pricey. However, I will definitely recommend her treatments to anyone who wishes to get beautiful natural lips!

I read an article in Tatler magazine aboutDr Rita Rakusand decided I would tryBotox®and Restylane. The results have been super. I am now happy to face the world on my own, feeling confident and self assured. I have since had treatments to take away fat pouches from my chin. This has also been a great success. Thank you, Dr Rita Rakus".

How Botox® Works

Botox® is a muscle relaxing injection used by millions around the world to improve the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, décolletage, tighten the jawline/nefertiti lift and even reduce Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating). Botox® helps relax muscles that when contracted, create lines and wrinkles. Increasingly, Botox® is being used by younger patients as a preventative wrinkle treatment.

Botox Before and After

Botox® injections are one of the most affordable, fastest working, safe and effective non-surgical aging treatments available.

  • Several injections of Botox® are administered into the muscles, reducing wrinkles. Treatment typically takes around 15 minutes.
  • No anaesthetic is necessary and discomfort is brief and minimal.
  • Your doctor will give you specific aftercare instructions.
  • You must book a complimentary consultation for Botox® with Dr Rita Rakus to determine if you are suitable for the treatment.
  • We also recommend a post-treatment appointment to assess the results with a free top-up if necessary after 2 weeks.

Botox® Results

Botox® treatments usually take effect after 3-5 days, however it may take 2 weeks for the maximum effect to come.

The effect lasts between 3 to 6 months (average 4 months). Patients who have had several injections often find the effect persists longer. Side effects are uncommon and minimal.

Why Choose Botox®?

  • Affordable & fast working – virtually no downtime.
  • Effective wrinkle treatment without surgery.
  • Natural results - Botox® won’t radically change your appearance.

Alice Hart-Davis lists the 10 Best Botox Practitioners – Telegraph

Botox Belles…it's amazingly quick - I could feel the slightest touch of the needles in a V-shape on my forehead, but there was no pain. I couldn't wait to get to a mirror and - success! I can see a difference. Already I look refreshed, not as though I'm constantly frowning. There are two minute little marks that only I will notice. I'm given some sachets of antiseptic cream to use for a day or two... and that's it.

Possible Side Effects

There are several possible side effects of Botox® treatment, but they are minimal.
There may be a mild stinging sensation as the Botox® is performed. Mild weakness or paralysis of the eyelid (ptosis) or brow may occur with drooping of the eyelid or brow, lasting usually 2-3 weeks. This is temporary and may not even be noticed by the patient. The incidence of ptosis is approximately 2%.

The other Botox® side effects include transient headache, numbness or bruising, which are uncommon - Visit the Official Botox® Website

Were you pleased with the treatment?
The whole experience was amazing from the initial booking to the end of the treatment. I will definitely be using Dr Rita for any future work I need.


“Upon Dr Rakus recommendation, whilst having fillers and Botox, I decided to have a course of IntraCel. My Botox and fillers were completely painless and the results were amazing and my lips were as I remembered them when I was young!

Having now completed three treatments of IntraCel I’m thoroughly fascinated as how it works almost instantly! It’s an exceptional result and one I would highly recommend.

Many thanks for all the care before and afterwards too!”

Were you pleased with the treatment?
I have been going to Dr Rakus for 10 years. Many of my friends have been seeing Dr Rakus as well. Her consultations and treatments are excellent. Thermage, Pelleve, and Hydra facial treatments take years off from your face. I have been very happy .
