Caci clinics are named after the CACI machine - the original non-surgical facelift.
A Californian Doctor, Thomas Wing, developed the Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument or CACI (pronounced Casey) in the late 1980s to re-educate the facial muscles of stroke victims and those with Bell's Palsy.
The CACI system use a micro current applied to the skin through two cotton tipped wands to activate the electric synapses in the muscles; stimulating and re-educating the fibres and restoring the muscles. CACI, like Botox and lasers, is yet another example of a procedure which began as a medical treatment, but which has now been adapted for use in the cosmetic marketplace.
This treatment has been available in the beauty industry for cosmetic purposes since the early 1990s. CACI soon gained huge popularity in medical clinics in the United Kingdom and America; and was introduced to New Zealand in 1994. The rest is, as they say, history.
David and Jackie Smith started their first clinic in Newmarket, Auckland in 1994 with a few machines and staff trained by an overseas therapist. The beauty industry had never seen anything like this before. The clinic went from strength to strength with a loyal client base and increasing interest. The second clinic opened in 1995.
Today there are 28 franchised Caci Clinics in New Zealand with scope for additional clinics to be added.
