We sent our House of Coco beauty editor, Scarlett, to Knightsbridge in London to try the ultimate CACI facial with Tracie Giles,
“When I first heard of the CACI facial, it reminded me of a young girls name or a plastic doll I used to play with but I had no idea such a cute sounding facial could be so advanced in its technology, giving the best aesthetic results on the market.
The CACI Non-Surgical Face Lift is an advanced, non-invasive facial, with twenty years medical research behind it and as the name suggests, CACI Ultimate really is the Ultimate aesthetic treatment system. As the very first treatment system to combine; Microcurrent Facial Toning, Crystal Free orbital Microdermabrasion, and LED Light Therapy Photo Stimulation. The CACI Ultimate is truly the most versatile treatment system available.
I went to Tracie Giles Permanent Makeup Clinic in Knightsbridge to experience the facial where they tailored the treatment to my specific needs and problem areas.
During my consultation with celebrity facialist and head of beauty, Sapphire, I said my areas of concerns were the fine lines around the eye area and the creasing in between my brows, along with the dry dull skin I tend to get (‘London grey’ as Sapphire likes to call it). I wanted my skin to generally be tighter, more glowing and more even.
The treatment started with a very gentle bamboo mechanical exfoliation (I think this was some sort of a cleanse but it felt beautiful!) and then under a light steam, an enzymatic peel was applied to my face to slough away any dulling dead skin cells. Even before any prodding or probing, my skin instantly looked brighter in complexion!
We then moved on to the CACI treatment and used the anti-ageing technique where specialised current patented by CACI is passed through the skin which works to isolate each facial muscle and stimulate muscle memory. We used the highest current on my skin as I could take it but there are different levels for each individual treatment as some people could find it uncomfortable.
Then I get the fabulous sounding ‘Party Pout’ treatment which is a fave at Trace Giles’ clinic with the celebs . CACI’s Wrinkle Comb is worked around the lip area to create the perfect pout with a result that lasts just 3-5 days. The Wrinkle Comb uses a technology to bring the skins natural Hyaluronic Acid to the skins surface to provide the plumped effect. Teamed with red LED light to encourage and stimulate collagen and elastin production. It instantly plumps out and softens deep lines and wrinkles thereby providing a needle free alternative to collagen injections and other dermal fillers.
The treatment was completed with CACI’s ‘feathering ‘technique. This technology pushes serums and moisturisers deep into the epidermis to target my dehydrated skin and make my skin much more plump and youthful looking.
The CACI facial is not just for women – it is also perfect for men toning all 32 facial muscles, lifting and sculpting to create a Brad Pitt like chiselled jawline. Who wouldn’t fancy that!
Overall, the CACI facial was a pleasurable experience in which you could really feel the skin tightening and plumping! I particularly liked how my facial was specialised to my skin needs so this is something to check with the individual salon, whether they provide this service. My skin instantly looked revived and glowing! I’d recommend to book a course of facials to see the biggest difference.”
