In today’s way of life, skin problems are commonplace amongst most adults and are caused by a variety of factors, including UV radiation, pollution, stress and natural ageing. Our faces are exposed to the elements at all times, which makes them more vulnerable to damage and therefore in need of some attention. One of the best ways you can condition your skin, restore youthful radiance and eliminate signs of dryness, fine lines and wrinkles is with the help of an electric facial.
pamperbanana Metro Spa is a leading stockist of Environ, Bristol, allowing us to offer a range of revitalising treatments, using the latest technology for unrivalled results. We’ve put together a few things you may want to know before booking your own electrical facial, including how it works and the many benefits it has for your skin.
CACI v Environ Facials
Both of these facial options give amazing results given that they are both results driven and are well known, leading brands within the beauty industry.
CACI works on the stimulation of the muscles of the face, providing lifting and toning to the facial structure, whereas Environ treats the actual skin but does not provide any muscle stimulation.
Why Do You Need a Course?
With all CACI facials, the electrical impulses start at a low level so that your muscles can get used to the current. It’s very similar to when you embark on a new training regime at the gym whereby you build up your resistance slowly. It works the same with CACI.
With Environ facials, it’s also very important to receive the maximum amount of vitamins and antioxidants into the skin so it can start to regenerate more quickly. The DF 11 Ionzyme machine delivers excellent results as the machine can push the Environ products deeper into the dermis, kick-starting cell regrowth, stimulating your skin to produce new collagen and elastin. Environ addresses everyday concerns such as pigmentation, lines and wrinkles and dryness. Environ facials and products are a fantastic way to regenerate and normalise your skin.
Our Brand New DF ll Ionzyme machine uses iontophoresis and sonophoresis (sound waves and small electrical pulses) which help deliver products 4,400 times more effectively during the facials. Formulated with a potent blend of vitamins, peptides and a brigade of antioxidants, this result driven brand helps to repair and protect skin while combating the signs of ageing. These active ingredients reach a much deeper level in the skin than applying manually, to achieve excellent noticeable and long lasting results. All skin types including problematic, acne rosacea, dry/dehydrated, oily/combination will benefit from one of pamperbanana’s advanced facials and coupled with the active homecare products, Environ offers everyone a skincare solution for life. A course of 6, weekly facials is recommended for best results
CACI Electric facials work by using low electric currents passed through the skin, producing therapeutic effects and toning muscles in the face. This results in a micro-lifting of the face, producing the desired outcome for those seeking change. This facial is considered to be a ‘sculpting’ procedure, although it doesn’t cause injury to the dermis.
Remarkably, 32 different muscles in the face are manipulated during an electric facial. Your passionate and talented therapist will then set an array of contact wands over several acupressure points around the face. As these wands deliver the electric current, the area being treated is stroked in strategic motions to tone muscles, firm skin and ionise nutrients that are deep into the cells of the skin. The smooth pulsating current both stimulates and strengthens facial muscles, increases circulation and gives an overall stimulated, toned effect.
Depending on your requirements, a course of 10 facials is recommended, to incorporate 2 facials per week for maximum results, following it up with appointments once every three weeks or so to keep those muscles in place.
Before a Treatment
Before you opt for an electrical facial, you should drink plenty of water to keep the skin hydrated and create the optimum conditions for the currents to work their magic. Unlike other more invasive surgical procedures that attain similar results, there is no other preparation needed for electrical facials; give us a call to book your appointment today.
There are multiple benefits that an electric facial treatment can have on your skin. First and foremost, they can prevent many signs of the ageing process that we all fear so much, including wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines. This is because the procedure helps to tone and tighten muscles, sculpting your face in such a way that it discourages stereotypical signs of ageing. In addition to this, they are effective in rebuilding thinner parts of the skin in a way that is like no other anti-ageing process. Wrinkles are filled, and sagging muscles are lifted as a result of its ability to regenerate tissue via its unique methods of stimulating both cellular physiology and growth.
Unlike a host of anti-ageing products on the high street, electric facials are supported by scientific research. A recent study has shown that low intensities of electrical pulses are the most effective of all the anti-ageing processes. The University of Washington proved that the treatment can cause a 14% increase in the production of natural collagen, a 48% increase in the production of natural elastin and a 38% increase in blood circulation when regularly used over 20 days.
All skin types can benefit from an electrical facial at pamperbanana, including those who suffer from acne and dry/dehydrated or any other skin concerns. When coupled with active homecare products, the treatment provides a skincare solution for life that could just be the answer to all of your ageing qualms.
