  • All forms of cancer

  • pregnancy

  • epilepsy

  • diabetes

  • heart condition/cardiac pacemaker or ICD

  • thrombosis

  • facial implants

  • skin disease (avoid area)

  • skin lesions

  • recent surgery (performed within the last 6 months)

  • Areas being treated with Botox® (wait 3 months)

  • dermal fillers (wait 2 weeks) should be avoided.

  • Note: Anti-depressants, high blood pressure and other muscle relaxants may reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.


  • Do not undertake any other facial treatments within 48 hours of your appointment.

  • Avoid heat treatments such as sauna, steam room for 48 hours.

  • Avoid perfumed products, self tan or heavy makeup application for 24 hours.

  • Do not apply exfoliating skincare products to skin for 72 hours after a CACI treatment.

  • Avoid touching the area. Your skin’s pores may be open and dirty fingers can cause infection.

  • Drink plenty of water to flush away any toxins released during the CACI treatment.

  • Avoid showering before bed to allow facial products maximum time to treat your skin.


Your skin works hard to keep you healthy, and you can return the favour by looking after it.

Top Tips

  • Use an SPF. Sunlight contains ultraviolet (UV) rays, which are the main cause of skin ageing and can cause skin cancer.

  • Stop smoking. Smoking is one of the main environmental factors in premature skin ageing by breaking down and preventing the production of new collagen. Smoking also causes the tiny blood vessels in the skin to constrict, reducing the supply of oxygen to the skin.

  • Cut down your alcohol consumption. When you drink alcohol, your body and skin can become dehydrated, leaving the skin looking older and tired.

  • Eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of water.

  • Follow a skin care routine to nourish and treat your skin. Ask your skin care professional what products would be best suited to protect and improve your skin. Cleanse morning and night. Exfoliate. Use a mask, eye cream and skin appropriate moisturiser.
