|Fibroblasts Cells… The Holy Grail of Skin Remodeling|
Studies show far more fibroblast activity resulting from mechanically stretched skin than typical wound repair brought about from cosmetically controlled procedures such as abrasions. punctures, laser, etc. It is important to note fibroblast cells do not respond to everyday physiological strain on the skin i.e., massage, facial exercise, vibration, etc. To promote the highest level of fibroblast activity, the skin must be stretched beyond normal levels. Remember, it’s all about wound repair, so your goal is to bring about microscopic levels of damage; again, microscopic… not visible to the naked eye.
Cross Stretching™ was developed by Deborah Crowley founder of FlexEffect and can be found within FlexEffects’ Facialbuilding 3rd, Ed. This training is based on the same principle as Facial Resistance Training™ developed by Deborah in 1979 (the breakdown of facial muscle fiber to bring about hypertrophy) Cross Stretching™ is the breaking down of the skins matrix i.e, weak, brittle, worn-out tissue to bring about thick, firm, supple, elastic skin.
Facialbuilding covers every aspect of the face: Skin, Muscle, and Bone; to neglect any one of these areas would be a complete waste of your time. Example: What good are lifted lids (muscle) if the lids are still wrinkled (Skin) and what good are lifted smooth lids, if your eyes are sunken inward (Bone)
