CACI Ultimate- the ultimate non-surgical facelift?

February 19, 2016 5:09 pm Published by

Looking for an effective, non- invasive treatment to improve facial skin tone & texture? Our brand new CACI Ultimate facial could be the answer…

You’re wise to consider non-surgical treatment in the first instance; the lifting and toning results achieved by the most advanced systems can be truly remarkable. The award-winning ‘CACI Ultimate’ facial is one such treatment which offers a comprehensive range of advanced technologies to smooth, firm and tighten the skin.


So what exactly is a CACI Ultimate facial?

The result of over 20 years research, the CACI Ultimate facial has been voted the most effective anti-ageing treatment available and is the only treatment system to combine CACI bio-electrical facial toning, crystal free orbital microdermabrasion and LED light therapy. Using tiny ‘micro’ currents the system stimulates muscle tone, enhances skin tissue and restores form and vitality to facial muscles, whilst microdermabrasion and LED light therapy brighten and even the surface of the skin, softening lines and wrinkles and improving the texture and tone.


How is the treatment carried out and how does it feel?

CACI Ultimate facials are carried out using a specialist system and may only be performed by fully trained therapists. Treatment is safe, painless and according to the majority of clients, often wonderfully relaxing.


How long will the results last?

Although a difference is often noted after just one treatment, for optimum results a course of ten treatments taken at regular intervals is recommended with periodic maintenance treatments thereafter.


How much does treatment cost?

A 90 minute CACI Ultimate facial costs £70, with a course of ten treatments priced at £630. For maximum benefit and just £10 extra, a Hydratone intensive hydration mask may be added to the treatment.


How can I find out more?

The groundbreaking treatment will be available here at face etc… by the end of February 2016 after which time we welcome you to visit the clinic to experience the anti-ageing results of the treatment for yourself. In the meantime, to find out more, pop over to our CACI Bio-Electrical Facials treatment page or contact us, we’d love to hear from you.

New and improved lash extensions for the ultimate flutter…

January 15, 2016 10:42 am Published by

After much research, stringent testing and significant investment we are delighted to announce the relaunch of our range of lash extension treatments. The new treatments utilise a brand new range of weightless, super-soft, individual lash extensions which may be applied in one of two styles to suit your personal preference.

Keep your look natural with our standard extensions (one extension per natural lash) or opt for maximum impact with our 3D extensions (several extensions per natural lash); the choice is yours!

When it comes to maintenance, we’ve listened to your feedback and realise fortnightly top up appointments just aren’t feasible or convenient for everyone. That’s why, alongside our original 2 week top up option, we now also offer a 3 week top up with more time allocated to restoring your luscious lashes.

The team are really excited for you to try the new and improved treatments and know you’ll love them just as we much as we do. To find out more, pop over to our Individual Lash Extensions treatment page or contact us, we’d love to hear from you.

PDO Thread Lift; for lifted skin without surgery…

November 10, 2015 12:27 pm Published by

Looking for a non-surgical solution to the sagging skin around the neck and jawline? Our new PDO Thread Lift treatment could be the answer. Here, we explain why- and answer some of the most frequently asked questions…

As we age, a loss of collagen and elastin in our skin can lead to looser facial tone and the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. Losing this protein, combined with a natural loss of fat on the face, can hollow the upper cheeks and create heaviness above the jaw line and around the chin, giving an aged and tired look. Until fairly recently, cosmetic surgery was the ‘go-to’ treatment option for tackling these prominent signs of ageing, however thanks to ever-advancing technology in the field of aesthetics, it is now possible to lift and tone sagging skin using injectable threads- all without incisions or surgery.


What are injectable threads and how do they work?

Using a fine needle, soluble PDO (polydioxanone) threads are placed under the skin to lift, tighten and improve its structure, tone and texture. The presence of the threads in the tissues initiates a direct healing response, stimulating collagen production whilst encouraging synthesis of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, both of which are vital for keeping the skin looking plump and youthful. The threads dissolve slowly over the course of 3-4 months, leaving bands of collagen in their place.


What results should I expect?

The effects of the treatment may develop gradually, with the optimum result reached after approximately 3 – 4 months. Over time, the PDO thread lift gently lifts and repositions tissues, resulting in a more youthful looking appearance. Hollow cheeks appear fuller, while any sagging skin is lifted and wrinkles are eased. Results generally last approximately 12 – 24 months, depending on the age of the patient at the time of procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected.


How much does treatment cost and how do I find out more?

Dependent on your needs and area of concern, several different techniques- and types of thread- may be used for treatment. A thread lift for localised, superficial and fine lines will start from from £400, whereas a full face lift for overall facial rejuvenation usually starts from £1300.
