Can technology help in the fight against wrinkles and anti-ageing?

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

technology anti-ageing gadgets

There are a host of salon based treatments promising to improve skin tone and reduce wrinkles and sagging and brighten our smiles – but can home based gadgets also help delay the impact of age and gravity?

Here are just a few that I will be trying over the coming weeks and months. At the moment my bathroom and dressing table are resembling something out of Star Trek! I will be sharing my thoughts in a series of video reviews, but thought I would share the options with you as I get started – of course I would love your comments if you have tried any for yourself.

CACI Microlift

CACI microlift

A home use version of the CACI salon treatment, The CACI Microlift emits low frequency, micro current impulses, that work in harmony with the body’s bio-electrical field and  the unique muscle gripping action of the CACI Microlift combined with the micro electrical impulses that trigger a stretch reflex response in the facial muscles to help restore muscle firmness.  There are 3 programmes to use with this device.

During the Toning Program extremely low frequency impulses stimulate and re-educate the facial muscles to improve tone and elasticity .

The Release technique is used in specific areas to relax tension in facial muscles that have become contracted and taut.

The Wrinkles Program uses high frequency impulses to specifically target the skin tissue and to assist the penetration of the Electro Buds active ingredients helping to soften and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I had a series of salon treatments a few years ago and was impressed with the results so I am looking forward to seeing the results of this one.
