“Hi – I am Tatyana from the Ukraine. I would like to thank Dr Rita for her beautiful work she is doing. I prefer to come and see Dr Rita for the treatments she provides in her clinic, because of her highest level of skill and professionalism, but the main thing is the result which is always so perfect. I always feel and look better, younger and feel happier.

I am so happy to be a client of Dr Rita – I feel very safe in her hands and she has a very keen eye. She always knows what I want!”*

“My treatment is the best investment any woman could make for herself and is better than a week in Spain”.

“It’s been a wonderful experience. I feel I look 10 years younger. I have lots of confidence with everything. Wonderful people with brilliant personalities. I feel so relaxed in this atmosphere”*

"Thermage, not only did it work but I could go out to lunch straight afterwards without a problem."*

Diane C., Nottingham


“ Over the years Dr. Rakus has kept me going - I don’t know what I would do without her! Part of her charisma is her cool, confident and quiet approach to every treatment I have had and, as a mark of the trust I place in her I am having a Thermage treatment today."*

AS


"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".*

R.K.


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

TATLER

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.'


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.

Lynda W 15.03.0


"I can't get over all the comments I've had about how much younger I'm looking and my friends can't put their finger on it. " Have you had any surgery?" But they can't see the scars.
I'm thrilled!"*

Shalani M.


“My treatment is the best investment any woman could make for herself and is better than a week in Spain”.*

MC


"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."*

Lycogel at Dr Rakus

What is Lycogel?

Lycogel is the first breathable colour corrective treatment that combines cosmetic and skin care technology to promote post procedure healing, soothe sensitive skin, rejuvenate and camouflage at the same time.

Next Generation Technology

Lycogel®‘s revolutionary, unique technology combines a breathable Triple Silica Gel Base together with LYCO-Complex™, a carefully balanced set of bio-active agents, including Biodyne, TRF, Skinasensyl, Epicalmin, Phytocelltec, Bois II and Olive leaf extract, that work synergistically to improve the skin.

LycogelTraditional mineral oil and water based cosmetics suffocate your skin by clogging pores and preventing airflow to take place.

Mineral crystalsMineral crystals, under magnification, look like overlapping fish scales allowing a certain amount of exchange of gasses.

Lycogel at Dr RakusTriple silica gel technology forms the unique “breathable” matrix contained in our formula. The chemical structure of the matrix causes it to be attracted to the surface of the skin so that it stays in place, providing a base to suspend fine particles like colour pigments and physical sunscreens. Under magnification, the makeup appears as a breathable meshwork to allow air, moisture and ingredients to reach the skin - it’s like wearing a “second skin”. The matrix facilitates the passage of oxygen to the skin below. It has voids, or openings, that allow oxygen to be easily transmitted.

Triple Silica Gel Base

This technology allows for the formation of a linear polymer meshwork that provides a stable foundation for fine particles such as pigments and titanium dioxide providing and unusually smooth texture when applied to the skin. The meshwork is water resistant and rub-off resistant but is gas permeable (breathable).

Lycogel Post Procedure Before and AfterPost Procedure Before And After

With today’s face paced lifestyle, you need to resume your normal life in the shortest possible time - without the tell tale signs of a specialists intervention. Lycogel® can be applied immediately post procedure and will counteract heat sensation, reduce swelling and will camouflage any bruising and or redness.

Safe to use immediately after:

  • Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing, Laser Skin Peels, P.D.T., IPL & Cosmetic Injections
  • Post Cosmetic Surgery, Hair Transplant Surgery and Scar Revision
  • Tattoo Removal and Vascular Treatments
  • Scarred or Burned Skin
  • Chemical and Mechanical Peels
  • Micro Needling Therapy

Did you know…

Lycogel breathable camouflage and concealer was originally developed to be used by doctors immediately after most cosmetic procedures to camouflage the signs of their intervention and promote a quick recovery process. The benefits of our unique formula have now been discovered by many to be suitable for use as an everyday camouflage.

“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.!"*

D.H.


“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”*

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