Treatment junkie Anna Curtis gives her verdict:

Where Dr M R Rakus, 34a Hans Road, SW3
(tel: 020 7460 7324).
Price £850.
Pain factor. 'It's quite anxiety-provoking. I dosed up on Nurofen and was numbed for an hour with anaesthetic gel, but the laser still felt uncomfortable - a scratching pain like sandpaper across my skin. But it only lasts 10 minutes.'
Recovery time. Afterwards my skin was hot, incredibly red and tight like sunburn. I lay low for a day until the red had faded to a pinkish glare, and a day later it was almost gone.
Verdict. Fraxel is the whole number - a facelift without the knife. The pigmented marks on my décolleté have almost gone, my skin is beginning to feel softer and more youthful and, along with some help from Restylane on my upper lip, my lines are definitely fading.'


"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!"

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!!

How does it work?

The Soprano laser light safely and gently passes through the dermis allowing the laser light to be absorbed into the hair root destroying the cells so they can no longer produce hair. Though hair re-growth has been prevented the laser does not injure the surrounding skin and the Soprano laser system procedure is totally pain-free.

How does the Soprano laser system differ from traditional laser technology?

All laser technology previously available emits laser light using a pulse method.

This process can be painful, time consuming and may not work on all skin and hair types.

By contrast the advanced Soprano pain free hair removal system diode laser technology uses low fluence, high average power and repetition rate so the application of light is constant. This allows for the ‘in-motion' technology to be quick and efficient as it is delivered in a sweeping paint brush motion over the skin as opposed to the pain-staking and time consuming pulse method.

Furthermore, the superior Soprano system cooling head that is used means there is only a warming sensation during the procedure as opposed to pain and discomfort from traditional laser technology. The Soprano hair removal system treatment does not need to be started and stopped because of discomfort and there have been no reported adverse side effects.

Does the Soprano laser system hurt?

No not at all. You will experience a warming sensation but no discomfort.

Is the Soprano laser system safe?

The Soprano laser technology is approved by the FDA (the Food and Drug Administration) in the USA for laser hair reduction. Advances in technology means laser hair reduction temporary side effects are incredibly rare.

How many Soprano laser treatments do I need?

During your consultation your hair and skin will be assessed and you will be recommended a tailored programme that will offer you the best results for your needs. On average we recommend 3-6 sessions. Occasional maintenance treatments may be required.

Does the Soprano laser treat all hair types?

New technology enables us to reduce hair types which previously could not be done. Your hair will be assessed during consultation. If you have been informed your hair is too light in the past, we recommend you are re-assessed.

How do I remove the hair in between treatments?

Your Soprano laser treatment will retard the hair growth at some points during your treatment course. It will also ‘fall out' approx. 3 weeks following treatment. You can shave any hair that appears but you must not remove the hair from the follicle (i.e. waxing or plucking).

Is there anything I should do before and after a Soprano laser treatment?

Do your best to minimise a suntan to the area being treated: this could make the Soprano laser treatment less effective. This includes sun-beds and tanning products. Skin preparations such as retinol, glycolic or acne preparations should be avoided.

Certain medications will make the skin sensitive to the laser light. Check with your practitioner.

“I had developed a very sun-damaged décolletage and, having had three treatments of Fraxel, I have been very pleased with the results. I now have a much smoother, younger-looking chest area and the Fraxel has really regenerated my skin. The results are truly noticeable”

The new Restylane Lipp treatment gave my lips an amazingly natural and soft look.

They look beautiful and the treatment lasted for months. Really great.
