The Rakus Revolution

Publication: Tatler


Ageing has a way of sneaking up on you, stealthily depositing wobbles, bulges and wrinkles in its wake. Fighting against this resistant enemy can be tricky, but luckily there is help at hand - Dr Rita Rakus. She's internationally known as the ‘London Lip Queen', although the perfect pout is far from being Dr Rakus's only claim to fame. As an expert in all aspects of non-surgical facial rejuvenation and body contouring, Dr Rakus is perfectly placed to add some zing to your beauty regime. She is a founder member and Fellow of the British College of Aesthetic Medicine and has recently been inscribed onto the Wall of Honour at the Royal Society of Medicine.

With over 25 years' experience in clinical practice, she is an international award winner with a huge celebrity following. From her renowned Knightsbridge clinic (handily situated opposite Harrods), Dr Rakus combats common ageing problems for the face and body.

Treatments using ultrasound and radio­frequency waves, like Thermage, Ulthera,Exilis, IntraCel and Pelleve - and now the new Jeisys' Ultracel - all help to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. Choose from fat-busting therapies to streamline your figure and complexion-enhancing treatments to reveal a fresher you. Dr Rakus has all the latest aesthetic technology at her clinic.

She also provides non-surgical treatments in Bristol at Bristol Plastic Surgery working with eminent plastic surgeons Mr Mercer and Mr Orlando. Treatments are tailored to you, ensuring that you obtain the optimum results. It's hardly surprising that these are award-winning therapies.

FRAXEL LIGHT is a more comfortable version of Fraxel and perfect for refreshing tired complexions and returning bounce to the skin with minimal downtime.

HYDRATITE FACIAL Favoured by models for pre-catwalk preparation, this facial, developed by Dr Rakus, is truly special. It simultaneously exfoliates, hydrates and tightens the skin to leave you glowing and beautifully radiant.

ULTHERA Targeting loose facial and body skin, this ground-breaking treatment tones and tightens the skin on the face, décolletage and arms.

NEW COOL MINI FOR THE CHIN This is the newest applicator to be introduced to the CoolSculpt system and magically freezes stubborn jowls away. It works at twice the normal speed of other freezing treatments for a sensational and quick fix.

NEW ULTRACEL This whizzy new machine from Jeisys has ultrasound, radio­frequency and needling heads in one unit.
It is used to tighten skin for a more pert and perky you with fast results, no pain and minimal downtime.

STEM CELL LIPOGEM This major advance in fat injections is the first of its kind in the UK. Introduced by eminent facial surgeon Mr Golchin, it is performed exclusively by him at the Rakus clinic. Stem cells are maximised and fat purified, to reverse the effects of ageing. This is a whole new revolution in facial rejuvenation.


CELLULAZE Coupled with the new EXILIS protocol (recently FDA approved for cellulite), this is the laser cellulite treatment with ‘wow’ factor. It targets structural irregularities under the skin to banish unsightly lumps and bumps.

NEW COOLSCULPTING This freezes and kills fat cells for a more contoured silhouette. It is combined with sonic Z-wave treatments - high frequency waves which help disperse the broken-down fat. All this is performed by Dr Galyna, ‘the star of Coolsculpting’. As one of the premier centres in Europe, the clinic has two machines, enabling dual sculpting for quicker results.
