I was kindly invited along to Jessica’s Skin Treatments (located at Brendan O’Sullivan in Amersham) for a 30 minute taster CACI Toning treatment. CACI (Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument) is a system that uses a series of tiny electrical impulses, called micro currents, at ultra-low frequency, to stimulate the 32 muscles in your face. Think of it as a gym workout for your face or non-surgical facial toning. These work in harmony with the body’s bio-electrical field, to stimulate collagen production and trigger tissue repair and skin rejuvenation.

Loved by celebs including J Lo, CACI instead of just focussing on the skin and it’s various layers like many facials, CACI really targets the muscles that hold the structure of your face. It’s a practical facial that’s all about the results.

Being the wrong side of 40 🙂 I decided this was the perfect treatment for me, plus Jessica had come highly recommended by a friend that has regular CACI facials with her. All of Jess’s treatments are CACI based so I knew I was in expert hands.

Upon arrival, I was show downstairs and after a consultation with Jess (I had previously filled out a questionnaire) about my skin concerns (mainly ageing and my eyes) and discussing the results I wanted to achieve (tighter, firmer, healthier looking skin) – Jess suggested that we focus the taster on the eye area.

I popped on the couch, Jess covered me with a blanket and as I arrived make up free, Jess got down to business. During my treatment Jess ran two prongs over my skin to manipulate the muscles, really targeting my eye area and the lines around my eyes.  I could feel my facial muscles twitching, tightening and lifting . Jess also used the clever wrinkle comb applicator  on my forehead which aims to banishing deep lines and help plump the skin and soften lines. It’s not at all painful, nor uncomfortable. It really feels like the muscles are getting a workout. 

Jess recommends a course of 10 sessions over a 5 week period to see real ‘wow’, facelift type effects, and then top up every 4-6 weeks, just like a regular facial.

HOW MUCH?

The CACI Signature Non-Surgical Facial Toning is £60 for 60 minutes or £540 for a block of 10 x 60 minute treatments. Prices start from £30-£95 for single treatments – you can view the treatment list here.

WOULD I RECOMMEND CACI & GO BACK FOR MORE?

I really would. Jess is so lovely & welcoming, as well as being extremely knowledgable and professional.  After my first session I could see differences to the firmness and overall look of my complexion.

This is however a considerable investment in both time and money if you buy the course (10 sessions over 5 weeks), but I definitely think it’s worth it so I better get saving 🙂

That’s not to say a one-off treatment won’t do wonders, and this is why it’s beloved by the A-listers for the pre-party plump and glow.
