How does CACI work?
CACI is a non-surgical facelift. It uses microcurrent stimulation to help re-educate the muscles providing a dramatic lifting effect on facial muscles and contours. Microcurrent therapy was originally developed to treat facial palsy. It is now used worldwide as a painless cosmetic treatment and has a huge celebrity following including Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian. Our CACI treatments can also combine both red and blue LED light therapy to calm the skin, neutralise bacteria and reduce redness in order to help tackle acne, blemishes and scar tissue as well as stimulating collagen in the skin. Our unique ultrasonic peeling which is part of our Ultra Skin Treatment gently exfoliates the skin, draws impurities to the surface and dislodges dead skin cells revealing a healthy, glowing complexion.
How often do you need to have a CACI non-surgical facelift to see results?
Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, a course of 10-15 treatments will be required for optimum results. After a course of CACI Non-Surgical Facial Toning treatments you will see real improvements in how your skin looks and feels. A monthly top up treatment is then recommended to maintain results. If you stop, the results will gradually diminish and your facial muscles may eventually return to how they were before treatments commenced. It’s just like going to the gym for a body workout.
Is there any down time?
No. CACI treatments are non-invasive and gentle on the skin so there is no interruption to your lifestyle. Although like with any facial we would advise to leave make-up off for the day. Microcurrent treatment is virtually sub-sensory with just a slight tingling sensation, often described as a warm sensation on the skin and is virtually painless.
Should anyone have it?
Definitely, anyone who is concerned with signs of ageing on the skin. As your facial contours will look lifted and toned with a fresher, more youthful appearance. There are a few contraindications to having the treatment which should be checked with your therapist before your treatment.
How much does it cost?
Our most popular CACI Treatment would be the Ultimate CACI Anti Ageing Treatment which includes Non Surgical Facelift, Skin Rejuvenation, LED Light Therapy and Hydratone Mask for €110 or a course of six sessions of Non Surgical FaceLift is €70 and you can add an Ultra Hydrating Mask for €15.
