A facial that gives the anti-ageing effect of procedures such as Botox is so effective it’s now replacing jabs and fillers among A-listers.
Nicknamed the ‘non-surgical facelift’, the CACI Facial treatment is a favourite among celebrities including Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez who even purchased a home machine for a rumoured $24,000 (£20k) in 2015 as she loves the effects so much.
And last year English actress, designer and producer Sadie Frost revealed it’s her age-defying beauty secret for looking fabulous at 50.
The pain-free facial uses simultaneous LED light therapy combined with a micro-current to stimulate collagen production for an anti-ageing effect – at a fraction of the price of more invasive treatments.
One 45 minute session of the’ Purifying Facial Treatment’ is £80, while a surgical Facelift could set you back as much as £10,000, and Botox and fillers start at around £250 per area.
Hollywood skin care expert Lena Bratschi told Femail that the facial is her top ‘red carpet beauty secret’, with many clients now using it in place of fillers and Botox.
This week Kim Kardashian shared a picture to her social media as she indulged in a Caci facial ahead of Madonna’s Oscars after party on Sunday
‘Botox and fillers are still popular and have their place, there’s a definite shift away from ‘that look’ to a more natural and healthy aesthetic,’ she said.
‘Treatments like the CACI Eye Revive and Jowl Lift uses microcurrent to lift and tone the facial muscles and are tools that fit in perfectly.
While most facials are done by hand and work to maintain a healthy visage, this facial is aided by an electric contraption which works to improve the skin texture.
How do CACI Facials work?
The clinically proven facial treatment has been around for 25 years and is a muscle lifting procedure that uses microcurrent technology to send out tiny electrical impulses helping to tone and soften facial expressions.
It incorporates a number of other pioneering technologies to stimulate collagen production:
1. Orbital Skin Resurfacing that delivers a controlled skin exfoliation to reveal healthy radiant skin.
2. Ultrasonic Deep Cleansing that rids the skin of make-up residue, blemishes and impurities.
3. CACI’s Wrinkle Comb targets deep lines and wrinkles to provide a non-invasive alternative to dermal fillers.
4. The facials are infused with hyaluronic acid, collagen and rose water to provide skin with an extra boost of hydration for a plumper effect.
The microcurrent facials are widely considered the most cost effective alternative to fillers, and are said to be perfect for ridding your skin of fine lines and wrinkles with immediate results that last for weeks.
Synergy is the latest version of this technology that promises to deliver simultaneous microcurrent and high brilliance LED stimulation that tones the facial muscles at the same time as rejuvenating the skin.
The results are said to be dramatic, leaving the face with the most natural lift whilst rejuvenating the skin and boosting collagen production.
