So You Think You Need a Facelift

so you think you need a facelift

Looked in the mirror only to hypercritically proclaim: “I need a facelift!”? If so, you are not alone. Every person over the age of 40 has begun to see subtle shifting in their facial appearance.

Changing the Face of Beauty

changing the face of beauty

Changing the face of beauty. Not long ago, in the previous century/millennium, women and men aged gracefully. They proudly accepted the fate of their faces; no one was bothered by wrinkles, crevices or even gray hair. The flower children are surely to blame. Those hippies of yesteryear firmly believed that they would always look like…

Does a woman’s beauty peak at 29? Men reveal what they REALLY think of ‘cougars’, grey hair, and sex as we age.

Aging is different for all of us but when Allure Magazine polled 2,000 people, very few male baby boomers are enamored with women their age…HA! Those younger men though are hot for cougar women and they’re not afraid to say that! Of course, women are still pressured to look younger than their years…that’s why Facial Magic is important for those who desire a younger looking face.

How cosmetic fillers can destroy your looks

I’ve been suspicious that injections that plump and paralyze would leave tell-tale lumps and bumps under the skin. Now there’s evidence that blindness, facial collapse, herpes, rheumatic disease and blue-tinged flesh are possible side effects. EWWWWWWWWWW! Just remember that by using Facial Magic you won’t have untested substances injected into your beautiful face. Exercise will…

The Vampire Facelift

I really do not believe this procedure will work long term because the serum will be absorbed by the body rather quickly. And, the cost is really quite prohibitive for the average woman…sounds kind of gimmicky to me. Anyone out there who can shed more light on the Vampire Facelift?

Paralyzing Injections – Do Young Women Need Them?

What a racket!

Whoever thought, then developed, paralyzing injections that freeze certain muscles using a neurotoxin is certainly a gizzilonaire by now. To think that men and women could fall for such an outrageous marketing gimmick is tantamount to buying a bridge in the Arizona desert.

Rise of the ‘smartphone face’: Is technology to blame for sagging complexions?

I think that it is possible to stop and even reverse the look of a sagging jaw. First of all realign your computer monitor so that you are not looking down. Chin level, looking straight ahead is probably the best advantage for your face. The same with your phone…be aware of your facial posture, perhaps an ear piece would be helpful and if you’re using Face Time, position the phone more eye level.

Facial exercise will help correct those sagging jowls and that wattle. Try this exercise at your desk…(lift your chin, nestle your tongue flat in the roof of your mouth, push up with your tongue and count to five)

Facelifts at 50 are an ugly betrayal

Sandra Parsons, author of the following article, Facelifts at 50 are an ugly betrayal, reminds us that “the simple truth is that all you have to do to look younger is lose a bit of weight, do some exercise and colour your hair. All it takes is the courage to start — because once you’ve begun, you won’t want to stop.”

That’s exactly why I love facial exercise. The movements create a vibrant, younger looking face. Heavy jowls and pouches? There’s a facial exercise for that! Tired of seeing droopy eyelids that impair your ability to wear your favorite eyeliner and shadows? Try this Upper Eye Exercise. Every portion of your face and neck can benefit from isometric exercise. No funny faces, puckers, twists or contortions.

Considering cosmetic surgery? You have to read this.

Surgery, whether it’s facial plastic surgery or a simple procedure, has many risks. Carefully and thoughtfully choosing a qualified surgeon is the first step for a successful procedure but just remember, there are no guarantees that the surgery will be successful or that you will love your results. Just look at the celebrity faces that have been done and over done and the tell-tale signs cannot be hidden. Why not opt for an all natural, proven alternative? Facial exercise will help you look 5, 10, even 15 years younger with no risk or harm to healthy tissue.

For cosmetic surgery, chins are the new breasts: ‘Chinplants’ on the rise

Chinplants are not new; in fact, they still bore the same amount of danger as every invasive cosmetic procedure. One of our Facial Magic clients, an MD from NY, attended one of my Learning Annex classes in NYC. When I saw her arrive, head down, a scarf disguising her disfigurement, I knew she had had either a car accident or something sinister happened to her appearance. It was the latter. She had suffered an infection from a chin implant that disfigured her once beautiful face. She never thought something like this would happen to her.

You Can Love Your Face Again – Exercise It

So where does this leave the rest of us? Facial plastic surgery is scary stuff and it has many risks, plus it presents an enigma – here you pay thousands and thousands of dollars for a procedure that has no satisfaction guarantee and you most likely will have to repeat certain procedures because the effects of gravity and atrophy will continue to bombard your facial features. This means more money spent and more risk is taken; and for what? Temporary results.
