Sonophoresis - Sound waves
What: Non-invasive treatment uses sound waves to push the products through the top layer of the skin and into the dermis for continued hydration.
Why: To helps to repair redness, and surface capillary damage, while aiding in collagen production for a more even complexion.
How: A small paddle is gently passed over your skin, while another metal paddle is either tucked under your shoulder, or held in your hand to close the circuit. As the paddle is passed over the skin the sound waves penetrate the top layer of skin, causing micro vibrations, which allows the active products to penetrate into the skin.
Microdermabrasion – advanced micro crystal exfoliation
What: Microdermabrasion is an advanced mechanical exfoliation.
Why: It exfoliates the top layer of the skin by helping to remove dry skin, and black heads, leaving you with a smoother, more refreshed complexion. A Microdermabrasion is a great treatment to begin with before having a more advanced treatments.
How: Using a small hand piece, a small amount of skin is vacuumed up and tiny crystals are blown onto the skin to cause micro abrasions. The first treatment is quite gentle, but as your skin gets used to the treatment, the pressure and suction will increase to get better, more long lasting results.
Collagen Induction - Needling/Dermal Rolling
What: A dermal roll, or collagen induction as we call it at Caci is a treatment that uses 260 fine needles fixed to a silicon roller to puncture the skin and intentionally cause micro damage to the cells found in the deeper layer of skin (basal layer).
Why: Collagen Induction is used to treat fine lines, dryness, tightness, and restores skin tone and texture. It is ideal to start during your 30’s to ensure that your skin looks like it does today, when your 60!
How: A topical anaesthetic is applied to the area before a treatment to make it more comfortable. The roller is passed over the skin twice, in varying directions, to ensure that the cells deep in the basal layer have been effected from different angles.
Photo Rejuvenation - Variable Pulsed Light Laser
What: Photo Rejuvenation uses light and heat to penetrate deep into the skin, to target pigmentation.
Why: This treatment is ideal for treating, pigmentation, redness, and sun spots, it also aids in the production of collagen for a smother more even complexion.
How: The light from the laser is attracted to the haemoglobin (red blood cells) found in the pigment of the skin. It causes the treated pigment to separate and come to the surface of the skin, which is what we refer to as the ‘milo effect’, as it simply looks like little crusts of milo on the skin, which then flake off, resulting in reduced pigmentation.
Fractional CO2 Laser - CO2 Laser
What: Fractional CO2 Laser uses heat and oxygen to penetrate deep into the skin, the heat pushes through the skin to draw out the moisture from within the cells causing damage to the cells below. Once damaged, these cells regenerate stronger, and faster than before.
Why: This is our most advanced treatment – which achieves truly extraordinary results, you need to be able to commit to the treatment programme in order to achieve long term results.
How: The area is treated with a topical anaesthetic to make the treatment more comfortable. The lasers are spaced out evenly We don’t treat every area of the skin, the lasers are spaced out evenly, and the hand piece is moved across the skin in a pattern, it will look like small squares with evenly spaced dots. The heat that is used to penetrate the skin in very fine holes, and reaches the basal layers (fibroblast cells), the heat is pushing through to draw out the moisture of the skin, and damage the cells below.
