The Treatment Rooms is a welcoming, calming space. I sat on a comfy sofa waiting to meet with my therapist, sipping a soothing herbal tea whilst waiting to experience the CACI Non-Surgical Face Lift Facial treatment. These have been growing in popularity as an alternative to fillers and other intrusive options.
My therapist Klara led me into a treatment room, then checked my medical history and allergies. She talked me through the treatment itself: a procedure lasting 1 hour and 10 minutes using the Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument. Originally designed for Bells Palsy and Stroke sufferers, it uses a microcurrent via metal probes with collagen-filled buds. The electrical current passes into the muscle stimulating it similar to a gym workout for the skin (Botox fans – please note that you can’t have this treatment within a month of having your injection.)
She asked me if there were any areas in which I had particular concerns before leaving me to undress and get comfortable. It had been a ghastly day so the opportunity to let the cares drift away whilst lying on soft cotton sheets underneath a cosy duvet and blanket on the treatment bed was very welcome!
She began with a full cleanse and tone of my face and neck which felt wonderful. Firm pressure is needed to access the face muscles but it’s not painful. Next, Klara popped enhanced tissue repair pads on my forehead during the facial to repair any fine lines and areas of pigmentation. I felt totally relaxed throughout the treatment, which ended with an intense cooling and moisturising face mask.
Afterwards my skin was glowing, areas of high pigmentation were reduced and my face felt more taut and firm. I could see that with a full course of 10 treatments over 5 weeks there could be an enduring benefit. As I floated out of the salon into the early evening air, I felt a million dollars.
