Hi
I have been using CACI facials for years now at local salon n UK but I am moving to Taiwan where I think it will be difficult to find a place that offers this. Is there an at home equivalent? I have heard of Cleo, Nuface, Ezzi lift etc, has anyone tried them? Laughing

I think the dermawand also advertises itself as being on the same par as a caci machine but not owning one I cannot say if it is as good or no. I did watch a video about it once though. It seems to lift the face BUT the results are only very temporary.

If it is similar to the Dermawand then this thread may be helpful:

There seems to be so many at home, hand held devices relating to non surgical facelift: which one to choose?
Whilst Dermawand is often mentioned it is much cheaper: do you get what you pay for? I can't find Nu face in UK are there any UK distributors.
Comments and advice please

I still have (and never use) a microcurrent/pulsing Rio Salon System unit (AC-powered) which has the cotton bud tips/+ and - electrodes. You have to move the buds "along the wrinkle" and back. Similar to CACI, though I'm not sure if it's as effective/powerful.

Bought it around 12 years ago! and it's so ancient I cant seem to find it on the net. Comes in a lilac/white case.

They do a unit similar to NuFace but no idea if it's any good: http://www.riobeauty.co.uk/60-second-face-toner-1.html

Interesting that they do an identical Pretika SonicDermabrasion though..maybe it's rebadged? http://www.riobeauty.co.uk/sonicleanse.html There's also a Tanda LED-alike and a Dermaroller on there.

I know the "Home Laser" hair removal units they sell got awful reviews, so best to research first.

I have a Dermawand and don't think it's similar to CACI at all. Personally I use the DW for zapping zits!

I can see a few listings on Gumtree for the Rio machine, so might be worth giving it a try as a cheap option?

I have a home shopping catalogue that has a couple of Rio products - not sure which one is best.

From reading the description on Amazon, this appears to be the up-to-date version of the Rio Salon System I have: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rio-Facial-Rejuvenator-Wrinkle-Treatment/dp/B000R567UK

The prices on JD Williams are quite painful! I'd try ebay instead.

This shows you how to use it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b19Sa9__WLY

Here's some reviews: http://www.peak-nutrition.co.uk/rio_facial_rejuvenator.htm#product-reviews

Amazon.co.uk has a so-so review.
