Facial fitness is an efficient and lasting way of rejuvenating without going under the surgeon's scalpel. Let us have a look at other methods, all of which interesting but not working on the same level as facial exercises. Note that you have the option of using some of the below methods in conjunction with facial exercises.


  • Creams: while efficient at moisturising and protecting against sun damage, creams cannot tone the muscles. They work at a superficial level without reaching the deeper layers of the skin.


  • Massages: they aim at relaxing the muscles and stimulating the blood vessels. Of course this will make you feel great, and the texture of skin may seem to improve, but these effects fade off shortly after the session. As the muscle does not perform any work, it cannot develop and saggy features will not be durably lifted that way.
  • Botox: rather than lifting the face, it is very efficient at erasing selected wrinkles. This is achieved by paralysing the muscle so that one loses the ability to move it; Hollywood producers complain that they find it difficult to find actors that can express surprise, joy, sorrow as their faces are frozen into one expression. 


  • Cosmetic surgery: just doing an Internet search for “bad plastic surgery” will make you think twice. It is a very risky gamble. Add to it the pain, and the cost. Of course it can be helpful in some instances, but you have all seen examples of these 'Hollywood face lift faces'. 


  • Machines: the basic concept here is similar to facial fitness. However machines (using electrical impulse) can never be as effective as exercise for the following reasons: first of all many do not let you focus on the weaker areas. You target the whole face every time. With exercise you select the areas in need of improvement, and you can work these less often when happy with the results, and concentrate others. Secondly, the intensity of the muscle contraction cannot be compared. It is like what flexing your muscles is to lifting heavy weight. Exercise is much more demanding on the muscle, and therefore allows you to develop it much more effectively. Do you think many fitness models got their abs using an electric belt?



Facial fitness can be combined with any of the above, but in itself, it is an efficient, lasting, safe and affordable method of rejuvenating!
