FAQs

What is microcurrent?
Microcurrent therapy delivers tiny electrical impulses that mirror the body’s own natural bioelectrical field. Microcurrent stimulation helps to re-educate the muscles and can lift, firm and tone. Microcurrent in aesthetics is commonly described as “facial toning” or “non-surgical face lifting” due to the dramatic lifting effect that it has on facial muscles and contours.

What is S.P.E.Dmicrocurrent LED technology?
S.P.E.D™ (Simultaneous Photo Electrical Delivery) microcurrent LED technology harnesses the power of LED light therapy at the same time as using CACI microcurrent. The powerful, high brilliance LED uses pulsed and continuous wave lengths for enhanced treatment results.

What does microcurrent feel like?
Microcurrent treatment is virtually sub-sensory with just a slight tingling sensation. Customers often describe it as an energised or warm sensation on the skin and is virtually painless.

Is microcurrent safe?
Yes. Microcurrent therapy was originally developed as a medical application to treat facial palsy and restore muscle tone by applying tiny microcurrent impulses to the affected muscles. Today this proven technology is now available in thousands of aesthetic clinics worldwide as a painless cosmetic treatment.

How many treatments should I have?
Although a remarkable difference is seen after the first treatment, the benefits of microcurrent are cumulative and typically a course of 10-15 treatments will be required for optimum results.

What happens after I have finished a course of treatments?
After a course of CACI Non-Surgical Facial Toning treatments you will see real improvements in how your skin looks and feels. Your facial contours will look lifted and toned with a fresher, more youthful appearance. A monthly top up treatment is then recommended to maintain results.

What happens if I stop treatments?
It’s just like going to the gym for a body workout. If you stop, the results will gradually diminish and your facial muscles may eventually return to how they were before treatments commenced.

Will there be any recovery or downtime after my treatment?
No. CACI treatments are non-invasive and gentle on the skin so there is no interruption to your lifestyle.

What is orbital microdermabrasion?
Our unique crystal-free microdermabrasion offers a precise and controlled skin exfoliation. The procedure diminishes fine lines and imperfections to achieve a smoother, more radiant complexion. The treatment combines orbital skin resurfacing, which is unique in the market, with LED light therapy to provide a gentle peel for sensitive skin or a deeper peel for thicker, sun damaged skin.

What does orbital microdermabrasion feel like?
The treatment doesn’t hurt at all. We use a ‘no dragging’ and ‘no pulling’ technique on the skin and simultaneous vibrations to make the treatment very comfortable.

What is ultrasonic peeling?
Our unique ultrasonic peeling handpiece rapidly vibrates on the skin (27,000 times per second) to gently exfoliate and revitalise. The vibrations draw skin impurities to the surface and dislodge dead skin cells revealing a healthy, glowing complexion. This is a more gentle alternative to orbital microdermabrasion.

What does ultrasonic peeling feel like?
The ultrasonic peeling treatment creates a warm and energised feeling on the skin and is a very comfortable treatment.

What is LED Light Therapy?
LED Light Therapy utilises the therapeutic properties of red light and blue light to calm the skin, neutralise bacteria and reduce redness in order to help tackle acne, blemishes and scar tissue. Blue light calms the skin and destroys skin bacteria and red light stimulates new tissue growth and cellular regeneration. Combined red and blue light is extremely effective in the treatment of acne and blemishes.

How do CACI Quantum body treatments work?
CACI’s Quantum system uses faradic technology that is designed to firm and tone body muscles by using electrically conductive pads. These are placed over specific muscle groups in the target area triggering involuntary muscle contractions. A typical 20 minute stomach treatment is the equivalent of doing 360 perfect sit ups.

In what circumstances is treatment not advised?
Treatment is not advised if you have any of the following conditions: All forms of cancer, pregnancy, epilepsy, diabetes, heart condition/cardiac pacemaker, thrombosis, facial implants (if treating face), skin disease (avoid area), skin lesions, recent surgery (performed within the last 6 months), Areas being treated with Botox® (wait 3 months) or dermal fillers (wait 2 weeks) should be avoided. Note: Anti-depressants, high blood pressure and other muscle relaxants may reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.
