CACI (computer aided cosmetology instrument) Renowned as the electronic face lift. A relaxing and painless non-surgical face lift treatment that tones muscles, smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles and prevents sagging skin.
The CACI system incorporates 4 different technologies within one state of the art treatment, Microcurrent, Ultrasonic Peel, Hydratone and LED Light Therapy photo stimulation.
Offering a number of programs for softening lines and wrinkles, facial toning, hand rejuvenation and improving acne blemishes.
The system utilises a special ultrasonic handset that vibrates at 27,000 vibrations per second on the skin surface to exfoliate and deep cleanse the epidermis.
Ultra’s unique wrinkle comb applicator is used to effectively and painlessly plump out and soften deep lines and wrinkles thereby providing a needle free alternative to dermal fillers.
Improve your complexion
CACI treatments combat the visible signs of ageing as well as improving overall complexion to restore the beauty of your natural skin. At Lisa Franklin, we can carry out a non surgical facelift by tailoring the different technologies to your current skin condition and focusing on any specific concerns.
A commonly chosen non invasive facelift package available at Lisa Franklin Privé is our CACI Lift, non surgical facelift. This treatment uses microcurrent technology, pinching and stimulating the facial muscles which firm up over time. The re-educating of the muscles with a high frequency current will give a more youthful appearance.
Ultrasonic peeling uses a hand piece containing ceramic/quartz heads that when excited by an electrical current emit piezoelectric vibrations that cause the hand piece to vibrate at 27,000 vibrations per second on the skin surface.
These rapid vibrations push skin impurities to the skin surface and cause any dead skin cells to become dislodged . The vibrating hand piece is then used to deep cleanse and gently exfoliate the epidermis.
The rapid expansions and contractions of the vibrating hand piece also destroy skin bacteria by causing the single cell wall of the bacteria cells to implode.
The sonic vibrations can also be set to a specific frequency to help the absorption of skin care formulations.
Ultrasonic skin peeling provides a far gentler and less aggressive alternative to traditional microdermabrasion methods of skin exfoliation.
Microcurrent in aesthetics is commonly described as “facial toning or non surgical face lifting” due to the dramatic lifting effect that microcurrent has on facial muscles and facial contours.
True microcurrent uses a current with an intensity of less than one millionth of an amp (< 1mA) and because of it’s low intensity it does not cause a physical or visual contraction of the muscle,instead, microcurrent stimulation works by a process called muscle re-education.
Combining ultra low frequencies with a modified waveform enables the microcurrent to recharge the electrical potential of the muscle by stimulating the spindle cell fibers that run the length of the muscle and attach to the golgi tendon organ in the belly of the muscle.
During treatment all 32 facial muscles are physically manipulated using soft cotton tipped wands (probes) or other attachments that transmit the microcurrent impulses.
Working a muscle will have a lengthening/relaxing effect that is necessary on muscles that have become contracted over years of facial expression (eg frown lines). Working a muscle from the origin and insertion point inward will have a shortening effect that is necessary for the majority of the muscles that have become elongated over time due to age and gravity.
Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of microcurrent are cumulative and typically a course of 12 treatments will be required for optimum results.
Hydratone combines active microcurrent rollers with a unique, electrically conductive silicon gel mask that has been infused with powerful hydrating properties. The rollers gently massage the face causing the mask to become electrically charged so that the whole face is bathed with rejuvenating energy.
The energy delivered by the rollers recharges and replenishes the bio-electrical energy within the facial muscles, restoring tone and firmness.
The energy generated also drives the hydrating actives contained within the gel mask deep into the skin tissue. The gel mask has a dramatic softening action helping to plump out and smooth deep lines and wrinkles.
LED Light therapy
The application of LED light as a treatment therapy is termed ‘Phototherapy’ derived from the measurement of light energy in units of photons.
Light energy is in every nerve, cell, gland and muscle of the body and each emits its own unique frequency vibration.
When the body becomes out of balance (due to age, health, environment, lifestyle or other external factors) the frequency vibration within the cells is affected and this disruption can lead to signs of ageing, skin conditions, illness and disease.
Each colour wavelength of light has a specific and unique frequency vibration. Specific light wavelengths have a bio stimulatory action on the cells and so can be used to effectively normalize cellular imbalances and treat certain skin conditions.
There are now numerous scientific studies on the effect of phototherapy in the healing of acne and other skin conditions.
Red LED Light is an effective treatment for aging skin as well as particular conditions such as Rosacea and other skin conditions. Benefits include: Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, reduction of age spots and sun damage, increase in collagen, reduction of overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries.
Blue LED Light helps Acne prone skin by targeting the bacteria which cause acne therefore decreasing acne drastically with absolutely no downtime.
