Being Marketing Manager for Cannelle I normally wouldn’t write a review for one of our treatments. After all it’s my job to promote the treatments we sell so a review by me wouldn’t necessarily be unbiased right?
THIS time however I feel I need to write one! Because I genuinely needed to be ‘sold to’ for one of our treatments as much as many clients! The non-surgical jaw lift treatment from CACI.
‘Celebrity favourite’, ‘not a knife in sight’, ‘World-famous and award winning CACI Facial Toning treatment’, ‘voted the most effective anti-ageing treatment available’ are all phrases flying around the internet when you search for CACI Ultimate face lift. It sounds too good to be true.jawlift
Well, I have to say, it isn’t too good to be true. It really does work. This is my experience of the CACI jaw Lift treatment. A shorter version of the full CACI Ultimate face lift.
On 11th January 2014 I got married and had the most fantastic day I could imagine. And I have to admit that a small part of my ‘radiant glow’ was the confidence I felt in my newly toned, lifted, tightened 40 year old face.
In the two weeks prior to my wedding I decided to invest in a course of CACI treatments. Not the full CACI Ultimate non surgical facelift 90 minute treatment I might add. I had neither the time to do this nor did the salon have the free spaces to justify me doing the long version of the treatment.
I invested in the CACI Ultimate jaw/jowl lift. This is a shorter 45 minute treatment. Which costs £35 each time.
As with all the CACI treatments the long-term benefits develop over a period of time, after a course of treatments. I have to say though after just one treatment I noticed a visible lift to my cheekbones, a tightening to my skin and a firmer line around my jaw.
This however was a short term result. It lasted 24 hours. After that I felt back to normal. It would have been great before a night out but I was a little disappointed that it didn’t last after the weekend.
However, the recommendation is to follow a course of 10 treatments at a rate of 2/3 a week. Yes this is a big time (as well as financial) commitment. And after just two treatments I was still unsure. I noticed a definite improvement in the lines around my eyes – less visible, and my therapist had done a bit of eye lift during the jaw lift treatment which definitely opened my eyes and lifted my brow area and slightly sagging eyelids. But after the weekend again I felt my skin and face contours had gone back to normal.
The eye opener (excuse the pun) came after my 5th treatment. Exactly half way through the course. I received questions and compliments from people about my skin (even with no make up!). I felt the tighter skin tone and saw a recogniseable lift in cheek bones and my jaw line. Which lasted!
I continued the course and in the week before my wedding I did 3 treatments. (One the day before I got married) and my jawline, cheekbones and face was genuinely lifted, clearer and my eyelids noticeably raised.
A bride at 40 years old isn’t always how you imagine yourself as a little girl. But I have to say the CACI Ultimate Jaw lift really made the difference and I felt 20!
Recommended maintenance is one treatment a month after the course. Again I will be perfectly honest. I feel this isn’t enough. At least one a fortnight and if possible one a week is ideal. But compared to the growing price of ‘facelifts in a jar’ creams (the latest 111 Skin Celestial Black Diamond Cream now stocked at Harrods is a cool £600) – can a CREAM really penetrate and lift muscle and skin structure as well as their claims suggest? – I feel the CACI jowl/jaw lift treatment really does rejuvenate the facial contours.
With its Quad (four!) probe applicators designed to double the lifting action of the CACI treatment system it offers superb results. This 30-40 minute facial treatment helps to improve the appearance of sagging jowls because it uses the Quad Probes which have been specifically developed to target the muscles around the jaw line. These Probes emit tiny electrical impulses to lift, firm and redefine facial contours, something I have yet to see a cream do.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a cream enthusiast for plumping the skin, hydrating and eventually reducing the appearance of fine lines and surface ageing symptoms. But for a non surgical face lift? For actually lifting sagging, ageing jowls and cheekbones and eyelids? CACI has really got me hooked. It works.
