I really got to ask here. I know Iíve not done Ageless but done another resistance based program, and since having my disasters Iíve done a lot of research. Is there anyone who has done Ageless using resistance who hasnít got any issues and has had no problems? Say under 35 years?

I started a program to maintain what I had, and in many ways I feel like Iíve destroyed my face. I have said it all before, and its been months now of doing nothing and my eyes are worse than ever. I feel so disheartened about the whole thing, but since Iíve had my disaster Iíve been doing a lot of research on resistance exercises for the face and there are so many issues people seem to face no matter what program they use, but at least I know that what I experienced others have gone through too. Whilst they werenít doing the same program as me, they had similar effects.

I am pretty sure it has everything to do with using the resistance against the muscles. Donít get me wrong, I think some of the results are impressive but the seem to be if the person is (i) older and (ii) suffering with issues like sagging etc.

I really regret doing what I have done to my face, and ignoring the results, but am also really annoyed that I didnít research this more thoroughly when I did it as I truly believe had I done so I would have made a better and informed decision about the program I purchased. Donít meant o invade this thread, but know its to do with Ageless and hoped that someone might be able to share experiences with me of doing them under 35 and not having issues? Am also going to start another thread to find out the answers!


I've probably read your other post/posts before but don't remember if someone asked you this. Have you contacted the program founder or trainer of the program you used and asked them to help you? I know the trainers at Flex Effect are really helpful with that and I'm sure the other trainers/founders would be the same if you had a problem with their program. I'm sorry you had such bad results and hope you get things resolved soon.

I have just ordered the Hotspots DVD and eBook. I paid using PayPal.

I am very surprised, an hour later, to have received nothing yet. We are talking a download here, I wonder why the PayPal payment did not trigger a link to a download site? I've never had to wait for an electronic download before...

ETA a bit annoyed about the wait as I wanted to shoot off a session during my morning routine!

I know how you feel, Karen. The same thing happened to me when I ordered from their old site. It took a couple days to get my download. I hope they iron out the bugs about this soon on their new site.

I finally got my download, several hours after ordering. It should have been an immediate link.

I paid £25 for the eBook and DVD. It is not a professional product - home-made video with uhm-ing and ah-ing, which make it bit distracting when trying to focus on the information (it feels like LL is unsure of herself). The pdf has typos. I think they need to clean up the presentation before marketing it.

However, I'm willing to overlook this for the information provided. I bought the original eBook and felt it was a very do-able program.

It's part of the charm, I think!

Don't let a couple of typos make you think the info is no good. Because it is. Loulou really knows her stuff and her program works. She's just not very big on glib marketing and putting on a lot of bows and ribbons to make things sell better.

I agree I think LouLou is great, highly individual and innovative and, after all, slick marketing and packaging isnt something I find genuinley creative and impressive.. there's plenty of it around. Wink

I ordered the Hotspots program a couple of days ago. Didn't receive the link right away, but did get an email from Ageless Steve, saying I'd be receiving them soon. They arrived a short while after that. Thumbs up for customer service from me too!

I wasn't expecting the DVD to have professional studio-quality production values, and I agree that the fact it's simply-done is part of its charm.

To be honest, typos do bother me, but Lotusesther is right ó they don't diminish the value of the information in this program.

I'm with you on this one, Karenlee ó in this case, I'll be happy to overlook them for the benefits I expect to get from Hotspots. I'm pleased with my purchase (no buyer's remorse here! Very Happy ) and am looking forward to doing the program.

I'd be interested in hearing about the results from those of you who've recently bought the Hot Spot exercises after you've been doing them for a while. I know LouLou says you don't need them if you do her original program, but I'm curious to know what different improvements others have made/will make by adding these other moves.

Please come back in a few weeks and update us, will you?

I would like to say. I bought the dvd and with the June special got the book for free. I did not want the download because I have lost many things before when I have changed my laptop.
I received an email as soon as I ordered. I ordered late Saturday and DVD arrived Tuesday.

I like it, I think LouLou comes a cross as a very genuine person, she is a bit shy I think infront of the camera. She is not a professional actress, she is a real person trying to share her knowledge.

The book came a couple of days later and I am enjoying reading it. If I don't understand the dvd I can refer to the book.
I posted because I think the customer service was fab and fast.

We have to hold our hands up and agree with Karen and Ronn that there definitely are typo problems with the Hotspots.

This is because we mistakenly sent out the wrong version of the document. Of course we will send a better Hotspots PDF to everyone concerned.

I very much appreciate the supportive posts here, although Louise was unbearably smiley and cheerful all day because of the lovely, positive things you said. We try not to encourage this as she is unbearable!

Best regards, Ageing Steve

Very Happy

Hi Steve

Can you also look at the pdf in terms of instructions - in some places (I think it was the cheek dragging, and in another place, can't quite remember now), it doesn't say how many reps you must do. I have assumed 10, as that is what it is in other exercises, but I think you should say.

Other observations - there are some discrepancies. I think it was the neck (sorry, don't have it available to check right now). It says 20 reps in the video and 10 in the pdf (or the other way around, but you get the idea.)

In one picture, the instructions say to keep your lips together, but the photo shows LL with her lips apart.


Finally, what would be nice is if you could edit the pdf so that the order matches that of the video. It makes it easier to flip between the two - I was playing the video, putting it on pause, then turning to the pdf to do the exercises. I found it a bit of a hassle scrolling up and down the pdf to find the same place, so it would be good if both were in sync.

I was hoping the video would have a section where you could follow along, personal-instructor-style (as opposed to quick instructions for each exercise) (it's more motivating) but it's no biggie.

Thanks

I definitely second karenlee's suggestion to have a follow-along segment! It makes it so much easier (for me, anyway) if I can just start a DVD, follow along and not have to worry about counting reps, timing them, etc.

I love that feature on the Ageless DVD ó the Daily Gurnalongs!

So please do consider that if you ever do an update.

I'm in agreement with karenlee's other observations and suggestions, too.

As much as I love Ageless and the Hotspots program, just for today I'll restrain myself from saying nice things about it... you know, so as not to make Louise unbearably smiley and cheerful. LOL!

Hi Karen,

Sorry, yes its 10 Reps as you thought.

Hows it going, are you just doing the cheek programme, or are you also doing the neck (i.e the full jowl programme?)?

Silver, do you mean with the Ageless program, or the new Hotspots?

Lots of people have had good results with Ageless, if you look at the first posts on this thread a lot of people posted their progress. I absolutely love it, and can honestly say I look younger and more attractive than I have for years, and most of that is because of Ageless.

I don't know about the Hotspots though. I bought it, but it looks very fierce. I want to work on my neck, but I'm a bit scared! I'd be interested to know if people have got results from this and also how long it took their face to recover from it Anxious

Hi Steve

Yes, I'm doing the cheek and neck program.

I haven't really got into it yet, been too busy, but I'm planning to get regular with it this week.

I've just scanned thru the hotspots pdf, and it may just be me (eyes burning after all day on the computer), but I couldn't find anything about how often to do the hotspots? Is it a daily thing?

I'm currently doing the regular program (all of it, 10 minutes) every other day, then doing the hotspots 1 day on the w/end to get used to it. I'd like to ramp up the hotspots now, but I'm not sure of the recommended times per week.

Thanks

Hi (again) Karen,

Louise just texted me as i asked your question, she also mentioned that as the exercises are pretty hard on the face,taking a couple of weeks break after 3 weeks or a month of doing them ,is also a good approach.

Hi Karen, cant remember exactly but was about 3 years ago. The changes come slowly for me but now I see I look young like I use to look old without noticing it happen After one month I noticed I was getting lots of compliment about my skin and ppl asking if I lost weight even tho i did not notice any change...then a few wks later I started to see I look better also!

I do ageless once a week now, but not the eye very often.

I see from past posts you have been using ageless for a long time. Now you have started on the hotspots as well. Would you say you are getting better, faster results from the hotspots and are you still following the basic ageless excercises as well.
Thanks in advance
