Style Insider Your daily dose of luxury

DIY SPA: Perricone MD

Don’t have enough time to visit the spa? No problem. Each month, we visit a top therapist to find out how to recreate their most luxurious treatments at home.

This month, Emina Avdukic teaches us how to get the Perricone MD CACI Ultra Facial experience. This ground-breaking skincare ritual gives the instant effect of a non-surgical face lift, so is perfect for all your anti-ageing concerns.

DIY SPA: Perricone MD
  1. 1

    Take Perricone MD Gentle Cleanser, Nutrive Cleanser or Neuropeptide Facial Cleanser (make your choice based on skin type) and mix one pump with lukewarm water to create a gentle lather. Start at the neck and work upwards, patting to distribute before rinsing.

  2. 2

    The next step is for any targeted concerns. Choose Firming Facial Toner or Serum Prep for anti-ageing benefits and dampen your cotton pad before layering on the product - this will make application smooth and avoid irritating sensitive skin.

  3. 3

    This is where technology comes into play. In the spa, Emina uses the CACI Ultra, a non-surgical face lift system, to plump out and soften deep lines (think dermal filler effect without the needles). This powerful machine is only available at leading professional salons, but the CACI Microlift is ideal for home use. Smooth on Serum Prep and follow the dedicated wrinkle programme (included with the device) to lift, firm and tone facial contours.

  4. 4

    Apply a pearl-sized drop of Cold Plasma cream and massage into face and neck. Follow with High Potency Amine Face Lift to firm and, finally, hydrate with Nourishing Moisturiser.

Final Result

After this facial, the first thing you’ll notice is how incredibly plump and firm your skin feels from the CACI device. Teamed with increased radiance and glow from the Perricone MD products, this facial is the perfect addition to your anti-ageing regime. Use the CACI Microlift weekly to maintain the results.
