We make the treatment look very natural. Before treatment we will always spend time discussing with you the desired effect; please bring along old photographs of yourself. We are conservative in our approach and achieve a subtle effect that can be built on if you so desire.

Restylane is Perfect For...

 

Lip enhancement
Creating pretty, shapely lips, providing a natural fullness
 
Facial lines and wrinkles
Softening and lifting deep and fine lines to create a more energised look
 
Improved skin health
Smoothing and toning the skin to banish niggly ageing lines and counter the effects of sun damage
 
Facial sculpting 
Restoring volume in the midface to create cheeks and provide a more youthful look
 


We all know that healthy, toned skin, free from niggling lines and imperfections, is key to looking our very best – whatever our age! And of course: the better we look, the better we feel.
But maintaining this vitality becomes more of a challenge as we grow older. There are some things that diet and good skin care cannot tackle - in particular loss of volume in the skin that causes deep ageing lines. Anti ageing creams may smooth the surface of the skin but facial lines occur at a much deeper level. So if creams are no longer living up to their promise and surgery seems like a step too far, Restylane is probably the ideal treatment for you.

With instant and predictable results, Restylane is the UK’s leading dermal filler, based on a unique form of hyaluronic acid (a natural substance found in our skin). Restylane is injected into the skin to deliver action where it is needed. It boosts the skin’s hydration system and replenishes the skin to restore youthful volume and delay the signs of ageing.

The Restylane range consists of 6 products, each tailored to your individual treatment needs.

Juvéderm VOLUMA

What is Juvéderm Voluma?

Juvéderm VOLUMA is injectible hyaluronic acid volumiser that recontours the face to restore volume to chin, cheeks, and cheekbones that have become hollow or thin due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss.

Immediately after treatment with Juvéderm VOLUMA you should notice that your facial contours appear fuller and rounder, giving your face a softer, more youthful appearance.

And, your results will last—the lifting effects of treatment with Juvéderm VOLUMA have been shown to last up to 18 months! 


How does Juvéderm VOLUMA facial filler work to achieve its results?

An attractive face is characterised by smooth, round contours, high cheekbones, hollow jowls and a thin, well-defined jawline. These features together comprise the “triangle of beauty” or “heart of face”, with its base at the top and summit below.

te, facial fat loss, gravity, and loss of the skin’s natural elasticity conspire to reverse this triangle’s composition, leading to a narrower, less youthful forehead and temple area, and a wider, heavier jawline.

Fortunately, Juvéderm VOLUMA can restore the face’s balance and heart-shaped proportions, revolumising facial hollows and  lost volume and recontouring the cheeks, cheekbones, and nose for a fuller, softer, more youthful appearance. 

Juvéderm VOLUMA helps recapture the facial volume that age and weight loss can diminish.

With Juvéderm VOLUMA, an innovative injectable hyaluronic volumiser, you can enjoy a smoother more youthful appearance of your cheeks, cheekbones, and chin.


Enjoy increased confidence with Juvéderm VOLUMA facial filler

Perhaps the best indicator of the advantages and benefits of anti-ageing treatment with Juvéderm VOLUMA is the level to which those who have used it enjoy their results. A clinical study demonstrated that at 6 to 18 months after treatment, all study participants rated their results as positive!

Similarly, the vast majority of study participants indicated that they would recommend treatment with Juvéderm VOLUMA wrinkle filler to others based on their own experience of feeling more attractive, with better self-esteem and greater confidence.

NEW REJUVAPEN Rejuvapen

What is Rejuvapen?

The Rejuvapen, a Fractional Collagen Induction Therapy System, utilizes 9 precisely spaced micro needles in a small cartridge to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis.

As a result, the skin shifts its natural repair mechansim into high gear and starts producing collagen and elastin to repair these micro-perforations. The self-repairing property of the skin is a 100% natural form of skin renewal from the inside out. The advantage of the Rejuvapen compared to other treatments is that it not only activates cell regeneration, it also enhances the absorption of active ingredients of RP Complex into the skin during the treatment before the skin closes.

Your skin becomes firmer and regains its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, circulation is stimulated and the overall condition of the skin improves.

Rejuvapen treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scarring, burns, stretch marks, and firms and tightens most body areas.

The Rejuvapen is the most powerful micro needle system available. The unmatched torque of the Rejuvapen is the perfect tool for all body areas and thick tissue where other systems fail.



Are there any side-effects?

Most patients feel as though they have a moderate to severe sunburn. Your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1-2 hours. Most patients recover within 24 hours or less.

Botox® MUSCLE INHIBITORS/RELAXANTS

Recommended Treatments

What is Botox?

Botox is a natural purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles to create a smoothed, rejuvenated appearance.

When inected into a muscle Botox temporarily blocks the chemical signals that make the muscle contract. Only minute quantities of Botox are injected and only the injected muscle will be affected.

Wrinkle Treatment

Botox is an effective wrinkle treatment for eyes, frown, and worry lines.

Treatment for wrinkles will usually take effect after 3-5 days; however, it may take 2 weeks for the maximum effect.

The effect of the treatment for wrinkles lasts between 3 to 6 months. Patients who have had several injections often find the effect persists longer.

Botox may also be used to tighten the jawline and to treat excessive sweating.

Side Effects

There are several possible side effect of Botox treatment.

There may be a mild stinging sensation as the treatment is performed.

In general, adverse reactions occur within the first few days following injection and are temporary.

As expected for any injection procedure, pain/burning/stinging, swelling and/or bruising may be associated with the injection.

Other Botox side effects include transient headache, numbness or bruising, eyelid droop which are uncommon, but these and other rare side effects will be discussed in full at consultation with your practitioner.

Dr Rita Rakus as a leading Botox practitioner has been selected in the past to validate new Botox doctors by Allergan to maintain a standard of excellence in the field.

KNIFELESS FACELIFTS

Pellevé

The Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction System is a safe and effective non-surgical facelift. Medical studies have proven that the Pellevé treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Unlike other skin tightening procedures, the Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction System does not require skin cooling, the use of drugs or anaesthetics. Because your skin is not numb you can describe the depth of feeling to the doctor, which helps provide the best results possible in the area being treated.

Discomfort and side effects are minimal. Some rare patients may experience some redness that goes away in a few hours.

The Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction System precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiowave technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. The result is noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance.

Results after Pelleve treatment are instantly noticeable, your skin quality and appearance is improved with a fresher and younger look.

The Pelleve treatment requires no downtime and no recovery time. A Pelleve eye treatment can be as quick as 15 minutes, a full face can take as little as 45minutes. With no downtime, it is the perfect lunch break treatment.

ULTHERA An Uplift, not a Facelift

Tighter, firmer, better fitting skin.
  • Natural.
  • No downtime.
  • Noticeable results!
The Ulthera treatment uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound focusing the energy to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin, including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disturbing the surface of the skin. The Ulthera treatment will stimulate the growth of new collagen over time, to gradually strengthen and tone your skin from within.

Natural, Noticable Results

Now Ultherapy offers you a way to stand firm in the face of gravity to lift and tone loose, lax skin—on your terms. With Ultherapy, there’s no downtime, no foreign substances, no radical change; your skin will gradually reflect a more refreshed, uplifting appearance. In less than an hour you can go about your day after a single Ulthera procedure to tighter, firmer, better-fitting skin. You may notice a short-term “boost” but the natural process of creating new, more elastic collagen builds over time—much like the effect that exercise has on building muscle (but without the multiple workouts!).

The Beauty of Ultherapy

Results will unfold over the course of 2-3 months and some patients have reported continued improvement for up to 6 months. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, Ultherapy has proven to be an inviting alternative for those who are not yet ready for surgery.

Deraroller Treament

Smoother Brighter Younger Healthier looking skin

How does a Dermaroller treatment work?

The Dermaroller treatment creates a multitude of tiny puncture wounds to the dermis which induces the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.

Creating dermal damage without the removal of healthy epidermis means that healing time is rapid and does not cause any comparable pain.

What will my skin feel like after the Dermaroller procedure?

Depending upon the depth of Dermaroller used most patients only experience light to moderate swelling, redness, sensitivity to touch, skin tightness, itchiness and petichiae (pin prick spots of bruising) for 2-3 days with minimal downtime.

Deeper Dermaroller treatments or very sensitive skins may experience small lymph discharge from the needled skin section and the skin may appear scratched, which normally resolves within 1 week.

How many Dermaroller treatments will I need?

In order to achieve optimum results a course of three treatments is usually recommended. Your practitioner will determine the course of treatment that is right for you.

What are the possible Dermaroller side effects?

Post treatment problems are uncommon, but the following side effects may occur and are not limited to:

  • Swelling Redness
  • Scabbing
  • Hyper or hypo pigmentation changes
  • Allergic reaction
  • Mild/moderate discomfort (during treatment)
  • Itching
  • Bruising
In the unlikely event of an adverse reaction occurring permanent scarring may occur.

How long before I can return to my normal activities after the Dermaroller treatment?

Most people can return to their regular activities within 1-2 days following a Dermaroller treatment.

Sculptra Treament

Body Sculpting.

Why Sculptra™?

The natural ageing process causes skin to lose its full, firm, youthful appearance. Skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity, causing wrinkles and folds to appear. Fat tissue is lost and patients look older. Dr Rita Rakus offers consultations on fillers for wrinkles such as Sculptra™ which can help restore lost volume to the face and smooth deep folds and wrinkles.

Who?

For patients who want to restore volume and contour to their face or lose deep lines and folds.

Areas for Sculptra™ are:
Upper Face Crow's feet
  Orbital rim
  Temple concavity
Mid Face Nasolabial folds
  Buccal concavity
Lower Face Marionette lines
  Oral rhytides
  Glabellar lines


The patient should be re-evaluated no sooner than 2 weeks after each injection session to determine if additional correction is needed.

After approximately 6 weeks clear improvement can be seen.

Larger volume defects may involve further treatment.

Volume effects for over 3 years

A recent European study has shown:
  • Long-lasting correction of small and large tissue defects.
  • Volume effects were found to persist in numerous patients for over 3 years.
  • Sculptra™ has the potential to improve quality of life.


A profile of individual mean dermal thickness as measured by ultrasound over time: The Vega study

Sculptra Vega Study


Treatment session - Days O, 15, 30, 45, and 60 (if needed).

Follow-up visits-weeks 12, 24, 48, 72, and 96.
  • Sculptra™ provided a near 3-fold increase from baseline in mean dermal thickness.
  • Increases in mean dermal thickness persisted throughout the study period.
  • All patients markedly improved from baseline.
Sculptra™ a facial aesthetic treatment option:
  • Some facial filling options do not provide long term correction of facial lipoatrophy.
  • Permanent implants and injectable products cannot accommodate continued changes in appearance that occur with age.
  • Compared with fillers PLLA (Sculptra™) provides more suitable volume enhancement to correct the signs of lipoatrophy.
"Injectable PLLA (Sculptra) is not a dermal filler and it should not be used like one"

Aqualyx Treament

Get rid of stubborn pockets of fat
in a few weeks


Aqualyx is a compound solution that is injected into stubborn fatty areas such as the chin, stomach, outer and inner thighs, hips, knees.

Aqualyx liquefies the fat cells, destroying them permanently, releasing the lipids that are then eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system.


How quickly will I see the results of the Aqualyx treatment?

Results will be seen shortly after treatment, but progressive results will be seen over the next few weeks.

Depending on the area being treated, several treatments may be needed to achieve the desired result.

Aqualyx is not a weight-loss method. It is used for contouring the body and slimming down those stubborn fat areas. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, the fat won’t grow back either.


What about down time and side effects?

There is no downtime. Typically, two injection spots are required for each area being treated. A local anaesthetic is given prior to the injection for greater comfort.

Minimal side effects have been reported but you can expect a little skin irritation and some bruising that will ease within a few days.

Aqualyx Before and After

Is Aqualyx safe?

Aqualyx treatment should only be performed by a doctor or a surgeon and before treatment, the patient must undergo a full consultation.

Aqualyx treatment should not be performed in case of pregnancy and lactation, liposdystrophy, pathological conditions and for those under 18 years or over 60 years.

Aqualyx has a registered medical CE mark.

Aqualyx treatment was developped by the late Professor Motolese and has been available in 49 countiressince 2009, with over 2,000,000 vials used.
