"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".

"I have been using the Obagi products since Oct 2008 and I have noticed a huge difference in my skin condition. It seems tighter and brighter and even the fine lines seem less obvious. I would definitely recommend these products."

Here's what Jane had to say about Dr. Rita Rakus on WhatClinic.com under
"Botox and fillers"
Were you pleased with the treatment?
I have been using Dr Rakus clinic for a number of years now and I have been delighted with the standard of treatment and care. I trust her completely.


"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."

As you age and your skin incurs the abuse of daily living (such as sun, stress, pollution), the cell turnover rate slows down. This means that the new cells take longer to form and reach the top. The old cells accumulate and stay on the surface longer. You begin to notice those unwelcome signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and age spots, uneven skin tone, loss of elasticity and loss of natural skin hydration.

Dr Laurence Dryer, Obagi's Chief Scientist, talks about the gold standard for pigmentation problems:

How it Works

Obagi Skin CareThe Obagi Nu-Derm System, a physician-prescribed skin care system, accelerates the cellular turnover. 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. The System triggers our Therapeutic Cascade™ of actions that:

  • Pushes fresher cells to the surface faster, for smoother skin, reduced wrinkles and increased tolerance
  • Reduces mottled pigmentation (freckles and age spots) and helps prevent the appearance of new pigmentation
  • Promotes more uniform cells at the deepest layer for better skin structure and balanced, more even skin tone
  • Helps increase collagen and elastin for firmer, more resilient looking skin
  • Increases nutrients natural hydration and circulation for supple, healthy-looking skin

Protocol for Use

Prepare
Cleansing and toning your skin makes it more receptive to the correction process.

GENTLE CLEANSER or FOAMING GEL
Apply to wet face, rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry.
Avoid rubbing the skin with a towel.

TONER 2 Apply to entire face with a cotton ball or cotton square, avoiding the eye area.

Correct
Repairs damage to the skin's surface, correcting hyperpigmentation (sun and age spots) and uneven skin tone while smoothing skin roughness.

CFFECTIVES 5% and 10% SERUM
If recommended, apply to crows feet area (5% Serum),
or face, neck and chest area (10% Serum).

CLEAR 3 Apply Clear evenly on the entire face, extending to the hairline, over the ears and ending with a feathering motion. (Rx only)

EXFODERM or EXFODERM FORTE 4 Apply evenly over entire face, avoiding the eye area. Wait until the cream is absorbed.

Stimulate
Damage to the deeper skin layers is repaired. Skin elasticity is restored by enhancing the production of collagen and elastin.

BLENDER and TRETINOIN
Apply 1/2 gram of Blender followed by the prescribed amount of tretinoin. Apply evenly on the entire face, extending to the hairline, over the ears and ending with a feathering motion. 5 (Rx only)

Protect
Prevent further damage from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

HEALTHY SKIN PROTECTION SPF 35, SUNFADER SPF 15, or PHYSICAL UV BLOCK SPF 32 g Apply products as instructed by your physician or skin care
specialist. Note: Prolonged sun exposure should be avoided for the first month. Sunfader (Rx only)

Control
In the event your skin becomes sensitive, dry or has a reaction, especially at the beginning of the treatment, you may add Control products to your protocol. However, they should only be used in moderation, as they slow down the skin transformation process.

EYE CREAM
Recommended to add moisture and soothe the eye area.
As needed.

ACTION
Use sparingly only when your skin is uncomfortably dry from peeling
or flaking. As needed.

TOLEREEN
Apply this low dose hydrocortisone lotion when you experience
itching, burning or redness. As needed.

What to Expect During Each Phase of Your Transformation

During treatment, you can expect to experience four phases as you undergo transformation to a more healthy and younger-looking appearance. The length of time between the phases will vary based upon multiple factors including patient age, skin type, amount of damage and daily compliance.

Out with the Old

In this initial phase, the damaged top layer of skin is replaced by a new layer of fresh, healthy skin cells. This process takes approximately 6 weeks. During this phase, you can expect to experience one or more of these symptoms:

  • Your freckles, age spots and dark patches begin fading
  • Exfoliation and flaking
  • Redness and dryness
  • Wrinkles and acne may look worse temporarily

These reactions are indications that the treatment is working. It is absolutely necessary to stay with the program to see these results.

In with the New

As stimulation continues, you begin to notice significant improvements in your skin. New skin cells continue reaching the surface and the production of collagen and elastin increases. Expect to notice:

  • Wrinkles begin to reduce
  • Tightening of your pores
  • Further lightening of your freckles, age spots and dark patches
  • Subsiding redness and flaking

Healthy Glow

In this phase, your friends will begin to notice your skin. Your skin will look and act younger and healthier. Your skin is:

  • Firmer and more resilient
  • More even colour tone
  • Smooth and naturally hydrated

The New You

In order to keep your skin looking and acting younger and healthier, you will want to continue to use the Obagi Nu-Derm System to maintain the improved results you have achieved. By continuing with a maintenance protocol, you can expect to:

  • Maintain healthier, younger-looking skin for a lifetime
  • Prevent future damage
  • Improve anti-aging effects

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.

Were you pleased with the treatment?
I just had to write in to say how successful my Thermage treatment has been, and how I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an effective alternative to 'going under the knife'. I can't praise Thermage high enough and Dr Rakus and her staff are wonderful ,such professionalism and warmth you won't find any where else. You won't be disappointed.


“I am very happy with the immediate lifting effect of the Pelleve and with the kind and professional way I was treated by Dr Rakus and her assistants”
