"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 latestSalt-A-Peel™combined with complementary skin care products dramatically change the texture and feel to the skin.

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

Dr Rakuswill 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."


“I always return to Dr Rakus for my Botox treatment because I trust her immensely - she always does such an extraordinary job! It’s such a pleasure to be greeted so warmly by her exceptional staff. They always remember my name which means a lot. I truly wouldn’t put myself in the hand of anyone else. Dr Rakus is truly the best!”

Elle thermage treatment
better than Botox?

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 jawline 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.

“TheBotox®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 theBotox®will be the last thing to go!!”
