While cosmetic facial surgeries are becoming more and more common these days, many people can’t afford to pay thousands of dollars for those kinds of results. Others simply don’t want to expose themselves to the risks involved with an invasive surgery. Due to these issues, many people are turning to facelift exercises as a cost-efficient and safe alternative to cosmetic surgery. But do these exercises really work? In this article, we’ll uncover the truth about this cosmetic surgery alternative.
Facelift exercises are certainly enticing. They are quite easy to do, can be done right at home and are supposed to have the effects of an actual surgical facelift. Here are some examples of the types of facial exercises that many proponents of this regimen suggest:
The aim is to perform each of these exercises while focusing on the specific muscles you are working; other muscles in the face should remain neutral whenever possible.
There are hundreds of books, websites and DVDs that claim facial exercises can give you younger-looking, wrinkle-free skin. The idea is that, by working the muscles in your face, you don’t allow the underlying structures to become weakened, thereby allowing skin to sag and wrinkle. Meanwhile, the increased blood flow to the skin could activate the buildup of collagen, which helps the face look firm and smooth. The expectation is that by doing facelift exercises at home, and on your own, you can achieve many of the results that others achieve by undergoing facial cosmetic surgery.
The benefits of facelift exercises are obvious. There are no health risks involved with doing facelift exercises, unlike cosmetic surgery on the face which can involve the risk of infection or other health complications. In addition, there’s the issue of cost. While surgery costs tens of thousands of dollars in many cases, facelift exercises are free. The only investment may be purchasing a book or DVD for instruction.
Unfortunately, there are no guarantees with facelift exercises. Though there are plenty word-of-mouth claims that they really do work, no scientific evidence exists to back it up. Here are a few points to consider:
Since many facelift exercise programs don’t have hard evidence of their effectiveness, many people are looking for other alternatives to keep their skin looking younger. Here are a few of the most popular options:

Although facelift exercises have been around for decades, there’s still no reliable evidence that they work. Meanwhile, many doctors assert that the ideas behind these exercises are contradictory to scientific fact. If you do try facelift exercises, be aware that there are no guarantees that they will get you the results you’re looking for. Most people have much better results when they take good care of their skin and avoid environmental factors which speed the aging process, such as sun exposure and smoking.
