The multifunctional CACI Ultra combines the facial toning functions of the award winning CACI Classic non surgical face lift system with the skin regenerating applications of the world acclaimed Futur-Tec system.
The CACI Ultra System incorporates 4 different technologies within one state of the art treatment device, Microcurrent,Ultrasonic Peel, Hydratone and LED Light Therapy photo stimulation.
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.
Micro-current stimulation delivers tiny electrical impulses that mirror the body’s own natural bio electrical field.
Originally developed for treating facial palsy Micro-current therapy is now also used widely in physiotherapy for pain control and in hospitals for wound healing. As an aesthetic treatment micro-current stimulation has been shown to have a number of other cosmetic benefits:
- re-educates muscles
- increases blood and lymph circulation
- enhances the penetration of the active ingredients of skin care formulations
- increases the production of collagen and elastin
- increases protein synthesis, gluconeogenesis and cell membrane transport
- increases mitochondria activity , adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
Microcurrent in aesthetics is commonly described as “facial toning or non surgical face lifting” due to the dramatic lifting effect that micro-current has on facial muscles and facial contours.
In the 1960’s Drs S. Baker and S.Doyle demonstrated that effective and long term muscle re-education could only be achieved using micro-current ultra low frequencies.
During each Caci treatment session all 32 facial muscles are gently manipulated and re-educated by a trained therapist using a series of precise movements. Soft cotton tipped wands are used on the face to transmit the micro-current energy to the facial muscles to restore tone and elasticity.
Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of micro-current are cumulative and typically a course of 10 treatments will be required for optimum results.
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.
Ultrasonic skin peeling provides a far gentler and less aggressive alternative to traditional microdermabrasion methods of skin exfoliation.
The application of 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.
NASA have recently conducted studies on the use of red LED light for the enhancement of cell growth and found that the application of specific wavelengths of light increased fibroblast activity and enhanced DNA synthesis leading to the production of new collagen.
A follow up study by Wisconsin Medical College demonstrated that the specific wavelengths of red LED light could be used to accelerate wound healing.
The American Academy of Dermatology has reported that blue light can be used to destroy the bacteria that produces the inflammation associated with propionbacterium acnes.
The British Journal of Dermatology has reported that the combination of specific red and blue light wavelengths can successfully treat acne.
A recent study at Hammersmith Hospital demonstrated that the combination of red and blue light phototherapy for the treatment of acne produced quicker results than the application of blue light alone.
Red and Blue LED Light Therapy technology is incorporated in Caci Ultra treatment system.
Hydratone combines active micro-current 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.
The Electro Cellulite Massager (ECM) combines the therapeutic benefits of massage with the effectiveness of microcurrent therapy.
The unique design of the Electro Cellulite Massager utilizes twenty four conductive rollers electrically charged with microcurrent to gently knead tired shoulders, soothe aching limbs and firm sagging muscles.
The rollers are designed to pivot to the body contours of each individual targeting specific problem areas. The stimulatory action of the Electro Cellulite Massager helps to break down fatty deposits and tone muscles.
ECM can help with:
- Breaking down stubborn cellulite
- Soothing tired aching muscles
- Relieving painful stress nodules
- Lifting and firming buttocks
- Contouring and toning legs and thighs
- Stimulating circulation
- Aiding lymphatic drainage
