Who is Faceworks for?

Faceworks is for women and men aged 20 to 75 and over. The Bronze Plan workouts enhance and freshen one area of the face for ages 20-45, the Silver Plan gives a little more overall lift for ages 35-45, and the Gold Plan rejuvenates the entire face for the age 45-75+. group. Whether you want to give just your eyes a makeover or your whole face, the perfect plan is just a click away. And if you start the exercises today, you’ll see your first results by this time next week.

Is there a contract or hidden costs?

No, we don’t believe in contracts or hidden costs. What you see is what you pay, there are no extra fees for any Faceworks Membership. The membership and payment can be paused or cancelled from your ‘My Account’ page any time you like without penalty.

Why do face exercises work?

When you talk, frown or laugh the movements are all made by facial muscles. These special muscles are firmly attached to the skin on your face, which is why toning facial muscles with exercise can have a dramatic effect on your appearance. When the underlying structure of the face is toned and rejuvenated, the skin lifts too. Face muscles are no different to body muscles and benefit from exercise in the same way. We keep our bodies fit – it makes sense to exercise our faces.

Why should I join Faceworks?

We know that making the decision to buy isn’t only about a product; it’s about relationships too. Faceworks is an online therapy practice, and we are here to make sure you get the most from the exercises. Our Therapist Elaine has over 15 years experience in skincare and natural health and is fully qualified in all subjects found on the website. The program is backed up by a sound and solid customer service, and we will never share your details or send spam mail.

How long does it take to see an improvement?

It takes just 6-10 days to see the first changes. The exercises all have beginner’s positions and tips to help you. The workout schedule of 5 times a week ensures the best results from the start. The full effects take around 3 months, sometimes a little more for ages 50+ and you’ll see new results every week as your face lifts and tones.

Will the exercises cause more wrinkles to develop?

No, the exercises protect your skin. None of the movements are aggressive and they won’t stretch your skin. Faceworks is one of the few Professional Face Exercise programs and it is designed with expert knowledge in Anatomy and Physiology.  In client trials, existing lines were reduced by 40%  due to the improvement skin condition and the tightening of facial muscles. The increase in blood flow to the face brings more nutrients to the epidermis, improving the skins’ condition naturally.

Are there any more exercises?

The exercises that make up the program are the most effective out of around 30 that were originally designed. None work as quickly or as precisely. There are Beginner’s and Advanced Positions to vary your workout so you can switch up and down as you like.

How much will Faceworks change my face?

Faceworks gently reshapes the face. The changes are noticeable, and enhance your own beauty. The exercises won’t alter your face as drastically as surgery can.  And if you change your mind and stop exercising, the facelift will melt away. From younger people wanting to minimise the effect of ageing; to older ones who’d love to regain their sparkle without expensive surgery, Faceworks is the perfect option.

What causes aging of the skin?

Young skin has lots of elastic connective fibres and a natural protective layer of fat under the skin. As we age, these the fibres get stiffer and tangled, and the fatty layer thins. The top layers of the epidermis lose their supporting structure. The results are lines, slightly looser skin and a gradual change in the shape of the face. Facial muscles get longer and sag, and the extra ‘weight’ collects around the lower face and jawline.

Can the muscles be built up too much?

No, Faceworks will not overdevelop your face. Muscles build gradually and the fibres within the muscle only rebuild to a certain size, so you won’t look like you’ve had too many fillers, or look unnatural. The workouts carefully rebuild for a natural, balanced result. Facial muscles are quite small compared to body muscles, so it isn’t possible for your face to become larger.

Is Faceworks safe?

Faceworks is a registered therapy and approved for public use.  We always advise a check up with your doctor before starting Faceworks, just to make sure it is suitable for you to do.

What happens if I stop doing the exercises regularly?

Muscles only retain size and tone if they are used. If the exercises are stopped the muscles will eventually return to their previous condition. A month or two is probably the longest you could go before the benefits decline.

Can I do more of one exercise than another?

After you have been doing the exercises for  4-6 weeks and the muscles are used to working, you can do more. All exercises have a ‘Good For’ tip so you can select the exercises you want easily, and the Plans have extra tips and advice to personalize your workouts. One of the biggest advantages with Faceworks is that if you have a special date coming up, simply increase your workouts or just target your ‘problem’ areas.

I’ve noticed that some exercises contract muscles and others stretch them. Why is this?

The upper part of the face is where most ‘rebuilding’ is needed. As muscles slacken, they drop. The distance between the nose and chin actually reduces as we age. Cosmetic surgeons also document what they call the ‘reverse triangle’ effect. When we are young, the widest part of the triangle is across the cheekbones and the point lies on the centre of the chin, in an upside down position. With age the triangle reverses: the widest point of the face is at the bottom of the face and the point is at the nose. Faceworks restores the width across the cheekbones and slims the lower face. Rebuilding  exercises for the top half of the face strengthen and lift the ‘weight’ of the face up, while the exercises for the lower face  tone and streamline.

Why does my face look different just after I have done Faceworks?

The exercises increase the blood supply to the face and neck. Because muscles work harder, they need more oxygen and glucose. The increase in circulation causes facial tissue to become plumper for a short time after doing the workout. This is beneficial for all layers of the skin, as cell renewal and repair become more efficient. Improvements to the complexion are usually the first changes noted.
