Facial‑Flex® – Clinically Proven
The two independently verified clinical trials, published in The Journal for the Society of Investigative Dermatology and The Journal of Geriatric Dermatology in America, confirmed that Facial‑Flex® increased muscle strength and firmness.
The second study confirmed the conclusions of the first study, in particular that mechanically aided resistance exercise increases facial muscle strength and produces a corresponding increase in facial firmness. The second study also demonstrated that changing the Facial‑Flex® elastic bands weekly significantly increased the results achieved. The elastics fatigue with use. Changing them maintained a more consistent level of resistance during exercise. In the first study, the elastic bands were not changed until they broke.
|Firmness||Strength||Skin Blood Flow||Period|
|Study 1||+22.1%||+75%||+10%||15 weeks*|
|Study 2||+32.5%||+250%||–||8 weeks (alignment changed)|
*The first study was extended 60 days beyond the initial 90 day test period. Skin blood flow was not measured in the second study.
