Only Flex-Bands Will Do When It Comes To Using Your Facial-Flex
Don’t fall for imposter bands when flexing with Facial-Flex. Only Flex-Bands will do!
Though many types of orthodontist bands can be found on the market, those are intended for other purposes and applications. And, while those bands may work for all of those other purposes, they do not and will not work with Facial-Flex.
The Right Resistance For the Right Exercise
Flex-Bands come in 6oz., 8oz. and 16 oz. sizes.
These measurements describe the resistance applied to your facial muscles as you go through your flexing routine. For best results, we recommend starting at 6oz. and then stepping up the resistance as you feel the exercises get easier over time. Once you’ve reached the 16 oz. bands, you’re really a pro! Continue with your Facial-Flex and increase repetitions to maintain your results.
If you’ve been using everyday orthodontist bands meant for other purposes, here is some bad news: The vast majority of those bands only give 1oz. or less of resistance.
In short, using any other band but a Flex-Band won’t give you the results you’re looking for with the Facial-Flex.
Careful With Imposters
Although Flex-Bands are already a great economical value, we understand that orthodontist bands can be quite a bit cheaper when bought in bulk.
What’s the old adage? You get what you pay for…
Those same bands that don’t have the resistance needed to truly work your facial muscles also don’t undergo the same rigorous testing process that Flex-Bands go through in order to make sure they will work with your device. The moment you put another band on your Facial-Flex, your warranty is voided.
More Flex-Bands Are Coming
Other than price, we know one reason our avid Facial-Flexers turn to other bands is those bulk sizes. We understand that it’s easier to buy once and not worry about it for a while. Because we love our clients, we’ve got something special on the horizon. Soon, getting the right size and quality bands onto your Facial-Flex will be easier than ever before.
Did you just realize you’re running out of Flex-Bands? Need to step up to a higher resistance? Order now! We are happy to help.
I inquired some time ago to get directions on how to use the Facial Flex I bought a few years ago. It somehow got lost in a few moves we made and I want to use it but have no instructions.
Could you please inform me. And if you think the old bands already in the box will no longer be ideal, please let me know.
Elaine, thanks for reaching out. We have instructions for use, here: https://www.facialflex.com/resources-guides/instructions-use/ and I’d suggest buying new bands. Latex naturally weakens over time and won’t give the same resistance after years sitting in the box.
We’re actually offering a sale on bands right now until Christmas day (buy three get one). Just add four band packages into your shopping card here on FacialFlex.com and use offer code: FLEXYEARROUND
I am still worried when using facial flex, am I doing it right, not to cause wrinkles around the mouth,i try to keep top lip over teeth but find it hard, do you recommend anything
Dorothy, I’ve updated this post with some more information on exactly how to avoid those wrinkles your worried about. There’s even a video from one of our longest Facial-Flexers to showcase proper technique. https://www.facialflex.com/ask-linda-wrinkles-around-the-lips/
I have used this product for years simply to tone face and neck area. Never thinking
I was helping one area and hurting another….above lip lines …oh how bad they look and I have created them…
Carolyn, I’m happy to hear that you are using the product to trim, tone and tighten and I hope you’ll continue to do so. Lip lines occur naturally as women age and a slight modification to the Facial-Flex routine can help get rid of them. I touch more on that here: https://www.facialflex.com/ask-linda-wrinkles-around-the-lips/
I use the Facial Flex, and I love it.
Thank you for your comment. We’re so happy you love our product as much as we do! If you would be so kind to send a before and after picture, we would love to see them and share the amazing results we’re sure Facial-Flex has had on you 🙂
Hi: I specifically want to majorly tighten my wrinkly neck and get rid of my slightly JOWLS! Any specific exercises for these issues? Thx
Thank you for your comment. If you’re looking for exercises that target specific areas, I’d recommend watching Dezi who recommends some different exercises that works the areas you listed above: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Zlq6sVTSCU.
I recently purchased and starting using my facial flex,but, it only came with with 6 and and 8 ounce bands. I see there are 14’s….also, do I use up the 6 oz bands, before I move on to the 8 oz?
We no longer sell our 14oz bands but now have a new 16oz band for our customers!
The short answer to when to move up your strength resistance: You graduate to the next strength band when 60 reps no longer feels like a challenge.
When you exercise with Facial-Flex, you feel a slight burning in your facial muscles (nothing painful!), akin to the feeling of weight lifting. The amount of reps it takes to reach this sensation will vary for everyone. When you personally, can do 60 reps without feeling the burn any more (or two minutes of exercise), it’s time to move to the next strength of band.
Purchasing bands is easy to do here: https://www.facialflex.com/shop-now/order-flex-bands/
Keep in mind that a pack of bands is roughly a 3 month supply.
Hope you find this helpful. Happy Flexing!
Hi – I recently purchased the no:2 80z bands. However I find this too easy – yet the next size up I have -,no:3 is too hard. I purchased the no: 3 a while ago – hence I had them to hand. What do you suggest I do? Put two of the no:1 bands on together as I still have some of those left. Please help? Thanks. Heddy
Many of our customers double their bands. You could try two 6oz bands for a total of 12 ounces, and then even 14oz by adding one 6oz band and one 8oz band. We haven’t formally tested this, however our customers have been doing this for a long time without any negative feedback.
If you need more bands to do this method we are currently having a sale until the end of February. Just add the coupon code LOVE2020 for 20% off your bands.
We hope this helps!

I would like to order some more rubber bands for my flex thank you
Hello Ruedene, please call our customer service department, and we will help you with your order.
You use two band 16 ounce together or add other resistance to the higher band ? I find the 16 quite easy.
We recommend customers do not use more than one Flex-Band at a time as this could compromise the strength of the device and cause injury. To maintain the strength and effectiveness of exercise, always replace Flex-Bands once a week.
We hope this helps. 🙂
I wanted to purchase the 14 oz bands which are no longer offered. I have read the comments of the reason for the change. I understand that but the clear material however that the 16 oz bands are made out of are stretchy and do not offer as much resistance as the 14 oz.
When I changed the 16 oz at 7 days the bands are stretched way out of proportion which explains why there is not much resistance..
Please consider making the 16 ox bands out of the yellow material or bring back the 14 oz.
This was an Amazon purchase.
