My hairdresser (people who always notice!) made me thrilled when she said “What have you done to your makeup. It looks good, you appear refreshed and your jaw line is tighter. A new face cream? Tell me about it”*

It wasn’t makeup or creams, but Thermage performed by Dr. Rita Rakus. I’ve trusted her for many years now and I know that if she suggests a new treatment I can rely on her judgment. I’m so pleased that I had Thermage.*

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

VISIA the new advanced technology provides
meaningful skin evaluations

What is VISIA?
Is VISIA simply a camera that takes high tech shots of the face?

The VISIA Complexion Analysis System is best described as an intelligent imaging technology - a combination of computer-driven photographic hardware and sophisticated software for feature detection and analysis.

Visia at Dr RakusWhat does the VISIA system measure?

A VISIA imaging session uses multi-spectral imaging and analysis to capture visual information for key arc-as affecting complexion health and appearance, wrinkles, spots, pores, texture (colour variation in the skin tone), porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in pores), and UV spots (characteristic of photo damage, typically from overexposure to sun).

Additionally, VISIA provides an informative comparison of an individual's complexion characteristics to those of others of the same age and skin type.

Visia at Dr RakusHow are the VISIA measurements used to provide better skin care?

VISIA has tools for the skin care specialist to assist in treatment recommendations, compare a series of imaging sessions, and also prints out nine different report variations depending on the specific areas of concern.

Where is VISIA imaging available?
Is VISIA being widely used or still an emerging product?

“I have had Fraxel on my face and neck with Dr. Rakus at her prestigious Knightsbridge clinic. I have never had so many compliments about my skin in my life.”*


"Great service, excellent staff and best of all was the Thermage treatment - it really works!"*


“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.!"*


“Apart from the obvious lift effect I really notice the difference in the appearance of my skin. It looks fresh and dewy and, at the age of 43, it is wonderful to have young looking skin again! Thank you."*
