Birthed in the 1960’s, Carita is a brand that has been at the forefront of beauty for nearly 60 years. Founded by two French sisters who were prestigious in the beauty industry, the pair applied their expertise and passion to create a brand with an innovative philosophy and a unique vision.
The brand’s hero product includes their revolutionary My C.L.E device. The first at-home device to combine both Microcurrent and LED technology, it aims to enhance, restore, protect and preserve your natural beauty whilst treating the signs of ageing.
What is the Carita My C.L.E?
Marking a new era in professional beauty devices, Carita have developed the world’s first at-home beauty device that combines both Microcurrent and LED technology. A true beauty revolution, the multifunctional device can cater to all of your skin’s needs in one compact handheld device. Whether you want to tone, tighten or improve your skin’s tone or texture, the Carita My C.L.E can do it all.
Where usually devices focus on one technology to target a certain concern, this device combines two of skincare’s most powerful energies to help you achieve salon level results at home.
Why You Need It
Developed to give your skin everything it needs, the device comes with four inbuilt beauty programmes targeting firmness, evenness, texture and radiance. Each programme lasts just four minutes, meaning it can easily fit into your current skincare routine.
The device is designed to be used with the Carita serums and can be used on the face, neck and neckline, meaning you can effectively target the areas that show the signs of ageing. From the lifting and firming effects of the Genius of Youth Serum to the anti-ageing qualities of the Neomorphose Re-Filling Serum, whatever your skincare concerns you can create a truly tailored treatment with the Carita My C.L.E device.
How It Works
The device’s Microcurrent technology, otherwise known as low-intensity electrostimulation currents, mimics the currents naturally produced in the body. They work by contracting the muscles, just like during a workout, to create an instantly lifted and firmed appearance. Microcurrent also stimulates the production of ATP, which accelerates the creation of Collagen and Elastin - the skin’s ‘youthful’ cells.
LED Light Therapy
Complete with four LED lights, all with different colours and wavelengths, the device is able to effectively target a number of different skin concerns.
- Red LED (630nm): This penetrates deeply into the skin, making it effective for treating fine lines and wrinkles and accelerating the production of Collagen and Elastin.
- Blue LED (460nm): Ideal for treating blemishes and imperfections, Blue Light helps to regulate oil flow and kills acne causing bacteria.
- Green LED(525nm): Green Light is perfect if you’re looking to treat signs of hyperpigmentation such as age or dark spots.
- White LED (3 colours merged): A combination of all three colours merged together, White Light is perfect for brightening up a dull complexion, revealing glowing, radiant skin.
