Often referred to as the ‘Jen Effect’ due to both Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lopez love of its results-driven, non-invasive anti-ageing effects!
A simplistic definition of a CACI Facial:
Micro-current impulses lift and tone your facial muscles and the neck area, whilst improving skin elasticity. Also, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What results can I expect?
The CACI facial gives you a more youthful, fresh appearance and glow.
CACI can back up their anti-ageing claims with real science!
There is clinical evidence CACI works. A study at the University of Washington showed micro-currents can increase:
- Elastin up to 45%
- Collagen up to 10%
- Total number of blood vessels up to 35%.
Elastin and collagen are vital components in keeping your skin plump and firm, blood vessels are essential for blood flow and the youthful glow you desire.
Okay… Now we’ve got your attention lets get into the nitty-gritty:
CACI stands for Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument. The CACI machine is essentially a micro-current machine that transmits tiny electrical signals through your skin.
A CACI Facial will improve, skin texture, tone and shape. Combined with micro-current facials toning, regeneration of skin tissue and collagen repair.
So… does CACI get rid of wrinkles?
The CACI system micro-current will tone, lift and re-educate your facial muscles back to their original position.
How long do the results last?
With all CACI treatments, the long-term benefits develop over a period of time, a course of treatments is always recommended.
A one-off treatment can be recommended before an event and a visible lift to check bones, tightening of the skin and firmer jawline, can be noted after one treatment. However, from a one-off CACI Facial results will fade.
So… how many CACI Facials do I need for long-lasting results?
We always recommend a course of 10-15 treatments. Check out our Blackpool salons CACI Facial treatment menu for more information on your CACI course timeline.
For optimum results, a course of 10-15 treatments is recommended. This is then followed by a monthly maintenance facial. To get the most from your CACI course it’s important to follow the recommend CACI Facial schedule.
What happens after I have finished a course of treatments?
After a course of CACI Non-Surgical Facial Toning treatments, you’ll see real improvements in how your skin looks and feels. Your facial contours will look lifted and toned. And a fresher, more youthful appearance will be noted,
To keep up your results, a monthly ‘top-up’ facial is highly recommended.
What happens if I stop treatments?
CACI Facials can be compared to a gym workout for your facial muscles.
Just like going to the gym for a full-body workout, If you stop working out your results will gradually diminish. Your facial muscles may eventually return, to how they were pre CACI treatments commenced.
Will there be any recovery or downtime after my treatment?
Simply put… No.
CACI treatments are completely non-invasive and gentle on the skin, so there is zero interruption to your lifestyle or downtime.
Is a CACI Facial painful?
Our therapists have performed CACI facials for over twenty years at our Blackpool salon, they have no experience with a client reporting any CACI treatment as painful.
CACI is a results-driven facial, so by definition it may not be the most relaxing facial on the market, but is defiantly not painful.
From personal experience, I’ve noticed that when working around the mouth area you can experience a metallic taste in your mouth (this taste is short-lived).
Please note, at our Blackpool salon, all facials are undertaken with luxury bedding, heated blankets, warm towels and candlelit rooms. To ensure your client experience is as relaxing as possible.
Micro-current treatment is virtually sub-sensory and gives a slight tingling sensation. Clients often describe an energised or warm sensation on to their skin and that the CACI facial is virtually pain-free.
Is micro-current safe?
Micro-current therapy was initially developed for medical purposes, to help treat facial palsy and restore muscle tone by applying tiny micro-current impulses to the affected muscles.
Today this scientifically proven technology is now available in thousands of aesthetic clinics worldwide as a painless cosmetic treatment.
In what circumstances is CACI treatment not advisable?
The following conditions are contra-indications for CACI procedures:
- Heart condition or a cardiac pacemaker
- Facial implants (when treating the face), skin disease (area must be avoided)
- Skin lesions
- Recent surgery (postpone treatment for 6 months)
