Introducing theNEW PelleFirm™
Body Treatment System

First Official Pellevé Treatment Centre in the UK

ThePelleFirm Systemprovides a non-invasive, pain free treatment for the body, resulting in firmer skin and temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

It uses a combination of monopolar RF tissue heating with the mechanical action of a removable non-energized massage head to treat any skin type.

PelleFirm Handpiece

This innovative system is comprised of 2 new, large diameter hand pieces sized for the body that elevate tissue temperature up to 45 degrees Celsius, coupled with mechanical massage heads for treatment of areas with cellulite.

There are two heads sizes:

  • 25 mm for smaller areas such as upper arms or above the knees
  • 30 mm for larger areas such as abdomen, buttocks and upper thigh

PelleFirm is powered by thePellevé S5 RF Generator, which also powers the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction hand pieces for facial skin tightening.

PelleFirm can address almost any area of the body and is ideal for problem zones including the abdomen, arms, buttocks and thighs and can be used on all skin types.

CelluliteCellulite results from changes in the blood circulation and lymphatic system which cause structural changes in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, collagen, and proteins. To reduce the appearance of cellulite, the small gentle spheres of the massage head facilitate movement of fluids into the interstitial space where it can be naturally evacuated by the body’s lymphatic system.

Good hydration increases tissue response to heat and aids the lymph system in removal of cellulite. It is advisable to drink plenty of water and other hydrating fluids before and after treatment and avoid alcohol

PelleFirm treatment areasThe target areas are segmented into small (10 cm x 10 cm) treatment areas
For example,

  • an abdomen should be broken down into at least four small treatment areas
  • an upper arm should be broken down into 2-3 treatment areas

Like Pellevé, a PelleFirm RF Body Treatment system is effective, delivering visible results with no pain and no downtime.

The PelleFirm System is CE Marked for body skin tightening and cellulite reduction. In addition, it also has received FDA 510(K) clearance for tissue heating and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

Consult your doctor for advice on the suitability of the PelleveFirm System for you.

"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 Juvaderm 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 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."
