I haven’t featured a mature skin salon service post in a while. My mum recently reviewed one of the latest treatments on the market so I thought I would share her thoughts with you all. ‘I had the good fortune to trial the CACI non Surgical Facelift at ClearSkin Clinic. It was quite a coincidence, as I had just been looking at ways of improving laxity in my skin literally the day before and came across CACI, and if the likes of Jennifer Lopez swears by it, who am I to doubt! It’s designed for people who are concerned with lines, wrinkles or sagging skin and for toning up your facial muscles to achieve that youthful glow. I can only judge on one treatment as a course of one per week for the first 4 weeks is required to condition and strengthen the facial muscles, then one treatment per month. I really wanted to see if this would work. I don’t like the idea of botox or anything more drastic and I was being realistic enough to know that I wasn’t going to come out 10 years younger. The clinic itself is very pretty and the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. I was taken through the process step by step. A CACI non surgical facelift works by using Microcurrent technology. I was warned that I would feel a tiny, electrical current on and around my face; absolutely harmless and not in the least painful. I believe these are the currents to help plump out lines and tighten that all important cheekbone and jaw area.
They are also supposed to re-educate the facial muscles and collagen is boosted. The whole procedure is, if not as relaxing as a massage, was relaxing enough. I did experience a metallic taste in my mouth, but I had also been informed of this beforehand, so wasn’t worried in the slightest. After the treatment, which my therapist used on all areas of my face and under the eyes and jowl area, she then finished the treatment with an hyaluronic acid and collagen mask to give moisture to the skin. My skin was in great condition and I definitely noticed a softening around my eye area and furrow between my brows, so why wouldn’t it be more noticeable after more treatments? Although the above image isn’t me, I feel it really shows the amazing results after a few sessions. I really want to book a session of 4 before I go on a city break; I think it would be great just before a wedding or holiday. It is non invasive, so what’s not to like and the clinic offer lovely package deals which include CACI and a myriad of other treatments like microdermabrasion, IPL etc.
