“ 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”

"I couldn't imagine entrusting anyone else, but Dr. Rakus with my face. After my Thermage even my mother has noticed how well I look".

“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 ;-)”

An advanced and enhanced non-surgical facelift procedure has arrived in the UK!

Two of the most important doctors in the cosmetic industry, Dr Rita Rakus and Dr John Curran are delighted to be among the first in the field to introduce Intracel in the UK. This non-invasive treatment utilises a new radio frequency technique to smooth wrinkles, and tighten and lift the skin, defining next-level anti-ageing results, dubbed the radio frequency facelift.

Radio frequency current is one of the best non-invasive tighteners available and the well-established technique works effectively to push electrical currents through the skin. However Intracel is different as it utilises FRFM (Fractional Radio Frequency Microneedle) Technology™, a unique system to deliver electrical current actually into your skin for a radically enhanced effect.

What is FRM Technology and how does it work?

FRM Technology™ is a unique technique to treat targeted areas of the skin through the fast penetration of a specially designed compound of tiny insulated microneedles, without damaging the epidermis. On contact with the skin, the device works to heal, while simultaneously emitting a high-tensioned radio frequency pulse on the target tissue inside the skin.

How does Intracel differ from other radio frequency treatments?

The Intracel delivery system is unique by pushing electrical currents into the skin rather than through it, allowing for deeper penetration without damaging the epidermis. In addition the radio frequency energy from Intracel produces enough thermal energy to denaturalise the cell, and destroy the causes of acne, acne bacteria, and sebaceous glands.

Are there any side effects from an Intracel treatment?

You may experience some mild discomfort during the treatment, which a pharmacy painkiller taken an hour before should ease. In comparison, waxing is far more painful. There may be subtle swelling, redness and bruising post treatment but this typically disappears within 2 to 24 hours, and you can be back in your make-up the day after treatment.

How long does an Intracel treatment take?

The procedure takes about 30 minutes per area.

What areas of the face are most commonly treated?

Intracel can be performed on pretty much anybody to treat the skin on the face. Dr Rita Rakus has seen especially effective results from Intracel on the cheeks, jaw line, lip lines and the brow. Intracel is an efficacious solution for skin rejuvenation, facial lifting, large pores, acne and acne scars by selective treatment on various depths of skin.

"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!"


"Since I started my treatment with
Dr. Rakus
I can now look people in the face. My confidence has soared!"


“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.!"
