The procedures are performed on a state-of-the-art, high-tech CACI Synergy device, which has a wide range of uses to build a procedure to suit each client. Many celebrities, such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Linda Evangelista, have also purchased this device for personal use at home. New beauty treatments and devices appear frequently and are usually forgotten just as quickly. The CACI technology has been on the market for 20 years, has been continuously improved and has gained worldwide recognition. Now the first CACI unit is also in Estonia at Niine Dermatology Clinic.
The main mechanism of action in CACI procedures is microcurrent, which is used with carefully adjusted frequencies and patented protocols to achieve the desired results. Microcurrent stimulation delivers small electrical impulses similar to the body’s own natural bioelectric field. Most of the time, the treatment is practically imperceptible, with only a slight electric tingling sensation.
Microcurrent therapy, which was originally developed for the treatment of facial pain, is now widely used in physiotherapy for pain and in hospitals for wound care. As an aesthetic treatment, microcurrent stimulation also has a number of other cosmetic benefits.
In aesthetic medicine, microcurrent therapy is often describedas a“facial tightening” or “non-surgical facial” because it has a significant tightening effect on the muscles and contours of the face.
True microcurrent uses currents of less than one millionth of an ampere (< 1 mA) and, because the current is low, it does not cause a physical or visible contraction of the muscle; instead, the effect of microcurrent stimulation is based on a process called muscle retraining.
1960. In the 1980s, Dr. S. Baker and S. Doyle demonstrated that effective and long-lasting muscle re-education can only be achieved by the application of microcurrent using very low current frequencies (less than 1 hertz).
In his book “The Body Electric”, Dr Robert O. Becker writes that in order to be effective, microcurrent impulses must be delivered in a modified waveform that is able to overcome the body’s natural resistance (Ohm’s Law) without causing discomfort to the client.
The combination of very low frequencies with a modified waveform allows the microcurrent to restore the electrical potential of the muscle by stimulating the coiled fibres, which pass longitudinally through the muscle and attach to the Golgi tendon in the centre of the muscle. This Golgi Tendon Organ (GTO) stimulation technique was developed by Dr. George Goodheart in 1960. at the end of the years.
During the treatment, all 32 facial muscles are physically manipulated using soft cotton-tipped probes or other nozzles that deliver microcurrent impulses.
Manipulation outwards from the centre has a lengthening/stretching effect on mimic muscles that have contracted over the years (e.g. facial wrinkles). The inward manipulation of the anchorage has a shortening effect, which is necessary for most muscles that have stretched out over time due to ageing and gravity.
Although a significant difference can be seen after the first treatment, the positive effects of microcurrent accumulate over time and a course of 10 treatments is generally required to achieve the best results.
