One of Zen’s most popular and favourite treatments for anti-aging is CACI. We have been working with CACI for ten years at our Bruntsfield Place salon and have witnessed the company improve and change, utilising the latest technology and developing the most advanced treatments.

In the last few years we have introduced the famous CACI Ultra machine and treatment to our Bruntsfield Place Salon and we were so impressed with the results, Hanover Street and Teviot salons now have their own machines and offer the treatments too!

Facial Toning & how it works

As we all know first impressions count and a sagging face can make you look tired, miserable and older than your years!

It’s a natural, aging process that happens to us all. Our facial muscles start to lose tone and elasticity. Genetics, lifestyle, weight fluctuation and environmental factors can all influence the rate and degree to which our muscles will lose their tone.

All is not lost however as CACI International offer a non surgical solution to combat loss of muscle tone using CACI microcurrent facial toning therapy.

Microcurrent therapy was originally developed as a medical application to treat facial palsy. Muscle tone was restored by applying tiny microcurrent electrical impulses to the affected muscles.

This proven technology is now available as a painless cosmetic treatment and is commonly referred to as “facial toning” or “the non-surgical facelift”.

The CACI Ultra incorporates this microcurrent therapy, along with 3 other advanced technologies, making it one of the most powerful and effective facials available.

During each 90 minute session all 32 facial muscles are gently manipulated and re-educated by a trained therapist using a series of precise movements.

CACI Ultra, step by step

In a CACI Ultra facial at Zen Lifestyle, we start off with a consultation to identify any concerns or areas of the skin you would like us to concentrate on.

We then cleanse the skin using Murad cleansers suited to your skin type before using a gentle ultrasonic peel adapter to remove any impurities. This vibrating deep cleanse brightens the skin giving you a lovely glow and ensures that there is no build-up of dead skin blocking the surface.

The next stage involves the’ lifting’ part of the treatment. Soft cotton tipped wands are used on the face to transmit the micro-current energy to the facial muscles to restore tone and elasticity. You may feel a slight tingling sensation but no more than that.

Advanced LED light therapy is then used to work on any specific lines or wrinkles you feel you would like worked on. We can also treat redness, spots, oily areas or blemishes during this stage.

To finish we use a circulation and moisture adapter to help hydrate the skin and speed up cell turnover rates. Active micro-current rollers are combined with a unique gel mask that has been infused with powerful hydrating properties. The energy delivered by the rollers restores tone and firmness and helps to plump out and smooth the skin.

The result? A firmer, youthful looking you!

CACI Ultra treatments last 90 minutes per session and are available at all Zen Lifestyle salons.  It delivers amazing results for anyone looking to beat the signs of aging and it’s especially effective when applied around the eyes and jowl areas.

We recommend up to three treatments a week for course 6-10 followed by monthly maintenance to retain tone and definition. Just like a monthly gym fee… but for your face!
