Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument (CACI)
CACI stands for Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument. It is a new micro lift technology that combines non-surgical facial toning, crystal free orbital microdermabrasion, and LED light therapy. It works by combining a unique patented waveform (tsunami), with the naturally occurring bio current of the body, to achieve instantly visible results on sagging muscles and skin tissue.
The tiny microcurrent helps to tone, lift, and re-educate the muscles back to their original position. When the muscles are stimulated, they either contract or lengthen, it is the direction of the stimulus that determines which reaction takes place and this will be dictated by the positioning of the probes over the muscles. The treatment also stimulates blood circulation which helps improve muscle tone and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin.
The system’s multifunctional capabilities enable the operator to offer the most comprehensive range of non-surgical treatment options, appealing to both male and female clients of all ages. It is painless, non-surgical and will make you look younger. CACI micro-current is even believed to treat facial nerve paralysis such as muscles paralyzed by strokes and bell’s palsy.
How is CACI Conducted?
The book, “The Body Electric” by Dr. Robert O. Becker, indicates that to be effective, microcurrent impulses need to be delivered using a specific waveform that can overcome the body’s natural resistance to current (Ohms law) without causing clients discomfort. Containing ultra-low frequencies with a modified waveform enable the microcurrent to recharge the electrical potential of the muscle by stimulating the spindle cell fibres that run the length of the muscle and attach to the Golgi tendon organ, in the belly of the muscles.
This Golgi Tendon Organ (GTO) simulation technique was developed by Dr. George Goodheart. The treatment produces a powerful result such as redefining natural contours and facial features such as jawline and cheekbones, rejuvenating skin textures, softening wrinkles, and improving fine lines. The microcurrent process reduces puffiness around the eyes. By improving lymphatic drainage, it boosts collagen and elastin levels while increasing cell renewal. By improving circulations, the process promotes healing, giving a rose-tone and a refreshed radiant look. It is virtually sub-sensory, due to the extremely low current used, the client may feel very little, if anything, at all.
During the treatment, all 32 facial muscles are physically manipulated using soft cotton tipped wands (probes) or other attachments that transmit the microcurrent impulses. Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of microcurrent are cumulative, typically a course of 12 sessions of treatment will be required for optimum results.
At our multispecialty medical center in Al Barsha Dubai, we offer different kinds of treatment using the ultimate CACI machine:
This treatment can be done with full-face treatment including the neck with an hour interval and jaw lift which is concentrated mainly on jawline and neck area which lasts for about 30 minutes per session. In this process, tiny electrical impulses are used to tighten, firm and tone sagging facial muscles and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At perfection we use, CACI’s exclusive serum filled cotton buds to enhance the dramatic tightening effects. It is a system that uses a series of electrical impulses to stimulate the 32 muscles in the face.
Orbital Microdermabrasion with LED
The new exfoliation technology that uses a handpiece with a disposable abrasive tip that rotates at different speeds to effectively exfoliate the skin, with LED light therapy, resulting in a clearer, smoother and more youthful-looking complexion. This treatment is done in just 30 minutes and you can always combine it with manual facials or other CACI treatment.
Wrinkle Comb with LED
It is a system that combines LED photostimulation with high-frequency microcurrent that effectively plumps out deep lines and wrinkles providing a needle-free alternative to collagen injections and other dermal fillers. This treatment is used in conjunction with the CACI award winning Amino Lift Peptide Complex Serum to further enhance the results.
The CACI hydratone treatment combines electrically conductive face firming rollers with the hydro mask infused with powerful hydrating properties (collagen, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and C). The rollers gently massage the face causing the mask to become electrically charged so that the whole face is bathed with rejuvenating energy. The current delivered by the rollers recharges and replenishes the body’s own bio-electrical energy within the facial muscles, restoring tone and firmness.
To sum it up, we always advise combining all the CACI treatments available in our centre for the most effective and optimum results. But those who don’t have enough time can always choose a single treatment per visit.
