HOW you exercise facial muscle will decide your level of success. And, there are as many ways to exercise facial muscle as there are facial exercise programs.
FlexEffect Facialbuilding® Vs. Facial Exercise:
The majority of facial exercise programs today are either toning exercises (Isotonic - no use of hands) or the simple anchoring (hold in place) of muscle for resistance. FlexEffect Facialbuilding® calls for legitimate bodybuilding resistance; hence the name Facialbuilding®.This type of facial muscle training calls for elongating the muscle before you contract it, giving you what is known as a concentric contraction*. Even more importantly, Facialbuilding® uses eccentric contractions* commonly known as negative-phase training. This particular type of contraction renders huge results. These two types of muscle contractions offer maximum effort in building muscle.
FlexEffect Facialbluilding®, not unlike bodybuilding, addresses far more than the mere building of facial muscle. Facialbuilding® also targets what is probably the most aging phenomenon of all... facial bone-atrophy and the loss of collagen and elastin.
Jolting and Pressure Reps were
developed by FlexEffect for bone-remodeling and Cross
Stretching for skin remodeling.

contraction: When the resistance is greater than the
force generated by the muscle i.e., the individual fibers of the
muscle contract but the force (pull) is so great the muscle
contraction: When the force of the muscle contracting
is stronger than the applied resistance.
