Q: Can I expect the same results with face exercises as I do with my body when using resistance training?
A: Yes. The 30 muscle groups that hold your facial skin firm can be strengthened and toned with resistance training. And over time, you can realize the results of a nonsurgical facelift when you follow the Facial-Flex® regimen.
Q: How quickly can I expect to see results from using Facial-Flex®?
A: Like exercise, the facial rejuvenation you can expect to see will vary from person to person. However, if you follow the recommended instructions, you should see visible results in face toning and facial wrinkles in weeks. (Please see our testimonials for more specifics.)
Q: If I use my Facial-Flex® twice as much, will I see twice the results?
A: No. The Facial-Flex® system is carefully calibrated to achieve maximum facelifting results in a minimum of time. Do not exceed the 2-minute facelift exercises morning/evening regimen. As your facial muscles become firmer and stronger, use a higher level of Resistance Band for optimal results.
Q: Can I trust Facial-Flex® to produce results?
A: For more than 20 years, Facial-Flex® has been used by medical professionals and individuals looking for a natural facelift alternative, with effective results. Over 1 million Facial-Flex® devices have been sold and are in use today. Clinical studies have proven its efficacy for both therapeutic and aesthetic use, and Facial-Flex® has been tested and registered with the Food and Drug Administration. You can buy and use Facial-Flex® with the utmost confidence.
Q: Can I use any cream with Facial-Flex®, or only Advanced Renewal Complex™?
A: The Advanced Renewal Complex™ is specially formulated to work with Facial-Flex® for maximum facial rejuvenation. When used with the simple 2-minute regimen of face exercise, neck exercise and chin exercises as directed, Advanced Renewal Complex™ offers visible face-toning results.
Q: What is so unique about Advanced Renewal Complex™?
A: Formulated by the renowned Dr. Jack Masquelier of France, Advanced Renewal Complex™'s active ingredient OPC® is one of the world's most powerful antioxidants. OPC® combats free radicals that can cause cell damage and premature aging. One dozen other all-natural ingredients also enhance the ability of Facial-Flex® to lift, tone and shape your facial appearance.
Q: What are OPC®s and how do they benefit me?
A: OPC® is an abbreviation for "Oligomeric ProanthoCyanidins" that are natural health-supporting compounds found in plants. After 50 years of research, Dr. Masquelier formulated OPC® as a patented free radical scavenging antioxidant containing extracts from maritime pine bark and grape seeds. His research proves the bioavailability of OPC® to penetrate every part of the body, especially those rich in collagen, like facial tissue. And no animal testing was done in the manufacture of Advanced Renewal Complex™.
Q: My skin is sensitive. Can I use Advanced Renewal Complex™?
A: Yes. Advanced Skin Complex™ is dermatologist-tested and suitable for all skin types, non-irritating, pH-balanced, and fragrance-free.
Q: Can I use regular rubber bands?
A: No. The Facial-Flex® Resistance Bands are made specifically to generate optimal results from face exercises and should be changed once a week. Once your facial muscles strengthen you will need to switch to a higher resistance weight—the 8 oz. or 14 oz. Resistance Band—to achieve maximum facial rejuvenation.
Q: How do I take care of the Facial-Flex® System?
A: For sanitary reasons, your Facial-Flex® should not be shared.
To clean the Facial-Flex®, wash it in warm (not hot) water with a mild detergent and allow it to air dry. Do not attempt to sterilize the Facial-Flex®, expose it to temperatures above 120 degrees Fahrenheit or immerse or wash it in chemical solutions. Any maintenance or cleansing of the Facial-Flex® other than as recommended will result in damage to your Facial-Flex® and will void your manufacturerĂs limited warranty. Do not use if improper cleaning and maintenance procedures have been followed. Facial Concepts, Inc., its agents and representatives shall have no liability or responsibility for breakage or damage to Facial-Flex®, or for any personal injury or property damage to any user, resulting from or attributable to any failure to follow the manufacturerĂs recommended use, care and maintenance instructions.
Q: How do I use the Facial-Flex® System?
A: Facial-Flex® is easy to use. With just 2 minutes of simple face-firming exercises in the morning and 2 minutes at night, you can expect results of facial rejuvenation in as little as 8 weeks.
1. View the instructional DVD for proper device usage and demonstration of exercises for the face.
2. After cleansing your face, apply Advanced Renewal ComplexĂ´ to your forehead, temples, nose, cheekbones, chin and neck. The complex has been specially formulated with powerful antioxidants to enhance the effects of facial exercise.
3. Place the Facial-Flex® horizontally between your lips, resting the plastic ends in the corners of your mouth. Tilt your head forward, and lift your chin.
4. Shape your lips into an oval, flattening your upper lip. Fully compress, then release. Repeat 30-40 times, or until 2 minutes elapse, twice daily. Increase the number of repetitions (and gauge of Resistance Bands) as you become stronger.
It is important to replace your Resistance Bands once a week. Clinical studies have indicated that maintaining consistent resistance through weekly replacement of the bands provides maximum benefits by increasing muscle strength and improving skin elasticity. As you increase your muscle strength, you will want to graduate to 8 oz. and ultimately to 14 oz. Resistance Bands for maximum optimized improvement.
Q: How often do I change the Resistance Bands?
A: Resistance Bands are available in 6 oz., 8 oz. and 14 oz. As you become comfortable with the face-toning exercises and facelifting results of the device, you will need to transition to a higher resistance to continue seeing improvement. Changing to a higher resistance challenges your muscles, increasing their strength and face-toning capability.
For optimum results, the Resistance Bands on your Facial-Flex® should be changed weekly. The bands fatigue and the resistance decreases with use. Do not use more than one Resistance Band at a time.
To remove the existing band, pull it off the mounts located on top of the center abutments. Install the new Resistance Band by stretching the band over the mounts located on top of the center abutments. Make sure that the band is positioned properly on both mounts and that no binding occurs when you compress Facial-Flex® between your fingers.
