Exercising Your Face To Reduce Sagging…Is That Effective?

Loose and saggy facial skin seems to be a given of the aging-process. You may have wished for a nonsurgical way to tighten your skin and may have read or heard about facial exercises.

But can facial exercises reduce your sagging skin? The answer is a very qualified “yes.

However, there are some things to consider before you start “working out” on your face.

  • The muscles in your face can increase in size with exercise just as any muscle in body. By adding volume that decreases with aging, you can expect less sagging.
  • But the exercises required involve continuous facial expressions that can actually deepen fine lines and wrinkles. The facial exercise movements encouraged are squinting and puckering, which can contribute to crow’s feet and lines around your mouth.
  • The biggest contributor to agin skin is sun damage…and facial exercises can’t reduce age spots, fine lines or wrinkles that come with years of collective sun damage.
  • It’s impossible for facial exercises to increase the collagen in your face.

What’s the best way to increase volume in the face? Consider Radiesse®, an FDA-approved synthetic, injectable dermal filler that is used to correct fine facial lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds. It is made of calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a water-based gel.  Radiesse® is injected into your skin through an easy, minimally invasive procedure. The results are immediate and long-lasting. Radiesse® also stimulates your body to produce new collagen. Radiesse® is a safe and effective way to add volume and contour to your face for a younger appearance. In just one or two treatments, you will see a bright, beautiful, natural look that lasts.

At Smooth Solutions, we also offer many other skin care treatment options including IPL (intense pulsed light) Therapy, Photofacial Treatments and Laser Skin Resurfacing that can address the visible signs of aging…that no amount of facial exercise can touch!
