“ 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."

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:

  • Fraxel® laser technology which improves sun-damage pigmentation, age spots, fine lines, stretch marks and acne scars. With a six-treatment course of Fraxel, often at six-week intervals, the result is gradual, avoiding dramatic shifts in appearance and the effects are long-lasting.
  • Pellevé, a radiofrequency system which can only be operated by medical personnel, to help treat wrinkles and firm the skin on the face and body. Pellevé works by delivering constant, gradual energy to the skin, causing heat to build up in the collagen-rich layers of the skin. The increasing heat modifies the collagen bundles deep inside the skin, causing them to contract and stimulating the growth of new collagen over time. This results in firmer, tighter skin, and improvement is instantly visible. Pellevé differs from other radio frequency treatments in that it can be used on very delicate and intricate areas of the face to great effect. It is perfect for an immediate boost pre-party because you can see results straight away and there is no downtime.
  • Thermage® CPT - a one-off treatment of Thermage® smoothes, tightens and contours skin on the face or body using radio frequency to stimulate the body's own collagen production and the effects are apparent over a period of six-months and often last for over two years with a top-up. Thermage® can even be used to treat the delicate eye area to combat the effects of ageing. Dr Rakus carries out more Thermage® treatments in the UK than any other practitioner.
  • Liposonix® is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that targets stubborn bulge around the waistline. With custom contouring it provides the flexibility to treat hard-to-reach problem spots such as the abdomen and love handles. Liposonix transmits high-intensity ultrasound energy to destroy targeted fat cells which the body removes through its natural process. The procedure is completed in just one session that lasts approx. one hour, and optimised results are seen between 8 - 12 weeks later. With little to no downtime or aftercare, you can resume your active lifestyle right after treatment.
  • The latest addition to Dr Rakus’ high-tech treatment portfolio is Exilis - an FDA approved device that offers a non-surgical solution using radio frequency (RF) energy for fat reduction and tissue tightening anywhere on the body. The procedure uses safe radio waves to heat your skin and targeted fat cells. This thermal energy speeds up the metabolic activity of the fat cells causing them to shrink. At the same time it stimulates and strengthens the collagen network which improves skin laxity and texture. There is no anaesthesia, no side effects and no downtime after treatment.
  • Ultherapy – Dubbed ‘the Ultrasound Facelift’… For the first time ever, Ultherapy enables practitioners to direct ultrasound energy not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue addressed in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy with the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness.
  • Ultralip - As a perfect addition to her pout perfecting portfolio, Dr Rakus recently created Ultralip, a combination of two exciting and innovative procedures –Ultherapy (a focused Ultrasound based anti-ageing treatment) and the innovative new lip-specific treatment utilising JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® with Lidocaine to produce the ultimate lip enhancing effect. Developed to meet the need of those seeking subtle improvements, this new two part procedure plumps and lifts to achieve a naturally enhanced look to the lips.
  • The Obagi Nu-Derm System is used in conjunction with Dr Rakus’ non-invasive cosmetic treatments to improve the look and feel of skin over time with regular use. Obagi is a US market leader in prescription strength, prescription-only skincare and sells three times more product than any other as it is so effective. The Obagi skin care system accelerates the cellular turnover of the skin. This System penetrates deep to improve damage in layers of the skin. It boosts functions of the skin at the cellular level to improve skin's cellular function to help it look and act younger and healthier.

"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. She recommended
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".
