WORLD ANTI-AGING AND BEAUTY EXPERT DR. RITA RAKUS PUTS RECENT BREAKTHROUGHS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The search for eternal beauty, good health and indeed eternal life reaches a climax each year in Monaco where thousands gather for the Anti Aging & Medicine World Congress.
It is no secret that Monaco has the highest concentration of multi-millionaires and billionaires in the world. And once you are as rich as Croesus it is beauty, good health and a long life that become the Holy Grail.
Olga Taran, Chief Editor of HelloMonaco among the maze of experts in the Congress talked to Rita Rakus who stood out for speaking with authority on what the future holds and what cutting edge treatments are worthy of your attention.
Dr Rita Rakus has a practice located in London’s prestigious Knightsbridge district, opposite Harrods. Her’s is one of the world’s leading cosmetic clinics with award-winning expertise in lip enhancement, non surgical facelifting, facial rejuvenation and body contouring. Twenty-five years in practice, and Rakus shows no signs of slowing – partly due to taking her own advice. The ‘London Lip Queen’ has more than 20,000 treatments to her name, and she’s in constant pursuit of newer, more avant-garde ways to perfect her patients’ looks and good health.
HelloMonaco: Welcome to the Conference on Anti-Aging. I see since the last conference you are as focused as a Grand Prix racer, planning opening up new clinics and dreaming up new products. What are you excited about this year? Please tell us about all the latest breakthroughs.
Rita Rakus: Last year I gave a lecture about NAD Plus. We naturally have NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) in our bodies. After about age 30 to 40 it decreases rapidly. The latest development in anti-aging treatments flows from a study in 2013 when two Harvard professors turned the equivalent of a 60-year-old mouse into a 30-year-old mouse with an NAD infusion. That’s how NAD got onto the world stage. This year there is breakthrough technology an NGO from Prague for which I have been asked to be a global ambassador. They are the largest private machine company in the world. They work in cardiology and cosmetics among many other things. They are using MRI scan technology for the first time in cosmetics. They have two new machines. One of them gives you 20000 crunches in half an hour. This is the first machine to build up muscle by 19% to 20% after four treatments and to melt fat by over 20%. You can also use it to treat your bottom. As you know there have been a lot of medical catastrophes around the world with people being injected with silicone and badly executed but-lifts. This machine can be applied to your bottom and will give you the equivalent of 20.000 contractions in each of four sessions to lift your bottom. You can of course go to the gym and do squats. You will develop muscle, it is true, but also at the same time in areas you don’t want extra muscle.
