This is the Verdict:
CACI SYNERGY FACIAL
Treatment: Not new, just an update of the tried-and-tested old-school no-knife lift. Micro-current-based CACI has been around for more than 20 years, and now they’ve added LED light therapy to the mix in order to deliver faster, better results.
What it involves: Tiny electrical impulses are applied to the facial muscles to strengthen and tighten, providing a boost to flagging, sagging tissue. First used to help palsy patients, it works by stimulating the muscles to restore blood-flow, elasticity and firmness. The addition of LED light further stimulates the production of collagen — which naturally slows as we age.
How it feels: Rather boring — you just lie there while two probes are passed over your face. But it’s not unpleasant, and is completely painless. You may experience a slight buzzing or metallic feeling in the mouth, especially if you have a lot of fillings in your teeth. But the therapist can adjust the strength of the machine to suit your tolerance.
The results: Rather impressive, especially in the dreaded jowl area. Firmer, better defined contours. The more you have, the better the results.
Celebrity fans: Lindsay Lohan, Sadie Frost, Anthea Turner and Martine McCutcheon.
Ouch factor: 1/10.
Effectiveness: 10/10 for a course.
Time taken: One hour.
