CACI stands for Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument and provides a painless and non-invasive solution to the ageing process, including treatment of face and body imperfections – such as acne blemishes, scar tissue, wrinkles or stretch marks – and all without the need for surgery.
Backed by over twenty years of research, CACI is the best-known system in the beauty industry. Results are often so dramatic that it has become known as “the non-surgical facelift”, due to the dramatic lifting effect that it has on facial muscles and facial contours.
The treatment uses micro-current stimulation of the facial and body tissues that delivers tiny electrical impulses which mirror the body’s own natural bio-electrical field. The treatment is virtually sub-sensory (that is, you hardly feel it), with just a slight electrical tingling sensation.
What it does for you
As a beauty-enhancing treatment, the benefits of micro-current stimulation include:
- re-education and tightening of the facial muscles
- increased blood and lymph circulation for better tissue drainage
- enhanced penetration of the active ingredients of skin care formulation
- increased production of facial collagen and elastin, restoring tissue tone
- increased protein synthesis, gluconeogenesis and cell membrane transport
- increases mitochondria activity and production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) to re-energise cells.
Results achieved from the treatment, and reported by clients, include:
- looking younger
- tighter skin
- reduced fine lines and wrinkles
- eyes more open
- fresher, clearer, brighter skin
- plumper skin.
How the CACI “facelift” works
Combining ultra-low frequencies with a modified waveform, micro-current therapy recharges the electrical potential of your facial muscles. It was originally developed for treating the medical condition of facial palsy, and in addition to its use in beauty therapy, it is also used in physiotherapy for pain control, and in hospitals for wound healing.
During treatment, all 32 facial muscles are physically manipulated using soft cotton-tipped wands (or probes), and other attachments, that painlessly transmit the micro-current impulses.
Muscles that have become contracted over the years, due to facial expression (as with, for example, frown lines), are worked from the muscle belly outward, to create the necessary lengthening / relaxing cycling effect.
Muscles that have become elongated over time, due to age and gravity, are worked inward, from their origin and insertion-points, to create the necessary shortening effect.
In addition to the other benefits mentioned, the results on the facial muscles alone are like taking your face to the gym for a super-intensive work-out – but without all the stress and exertion of the session! In fact, the treatment is wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating.
