I don't know. I do know that you probably have to do all of them for a while and then you'll know which ones work best for you.

After 4 months, I still had my "eye bags/hollowness". It was after a year that I saw a huge improvement and around 20 months before were were completely gone.

Well, it's been about a year and a half since I started Ageless, and I think I'm finally seeing some results. They are subtle for sure, but I'm noticing that the bit of jowling I was starting to have looks better. The weird thing is that I can't really see improvements in my photos, but in the mirror, there is something good happening. Yay, Ageless! However, I still have terrible undereye hollows and hooded eyes - no real change. But lower face improvements ain't nothing, so I'm going to keep going. Smile

Gosh, I'm supposed to get an email when someone posts on this thread. I didn't, so I wasn't aware. Beehive, I'm so delighted that you're at last seeing the results you deserve. You kept going and I promise you'll see the other bits responding in due course. With the eyes, you may find that a break from exercise will give the orb.oc space to build and flatten.

Peppercorn, thanks so much for your continued positive, helpful posts, and immacolata, I love you. You give off a happy and peaceful aura, and the goal of the programme is to feel and express exactly that.

Not really. There is a brow exercise in the occasional exercises, but that's it.

Hi Sorry if this has been asked before, new to this forum.

Reading thru old post see mention of a 30 day system. Don't find this available on the "Ageless If You Dare" website - has this been discontinued.

Also does her exercises cover drooping corners of the mouth which causes the marionette lines.

Tks Smile

Hi Derby,
Thanks for your interest... We called a halt to 30 day because it's for people who have the programme, and we thought it was a bit confusing. Using the original programme is fine, but If you email us, or drop steve a pm he'll be happy to provide you with a 30 day programme at an affordable price.

30 day is a good way to use Ageless because it's specific about what you need to do each day, and I hope it gives some useful advice and information to keep you at it. It's worth sticking to Ageless, although as the guys here have said, the most dramatic changes may happen over time

All best, Ll :-*

Oh, and marionette lines, you bet! The Ageless programme concentrates on lifting the face up and out (like a facelift) marionette lines are just caused by some sagging flesh that you can most definitely pull up!

Tks for reply, these lines are extending from the corners of the mouth, which I thought were marionette lines.

Hi again,

You can pull the marionette lines out as part of the general lifting of the face. It all kinda slides down, if you imagine a thick piece of cloth hanging down from your cheekbones, then imagine it being caught up at the mouth corners the folds you can see are the skin draping from the corners of the mouth. If the cloth is pulled back up the drape vanishes.

Deb Crowley, thank you very much for your post. Your programme is the One True Facialbuilding programme, no matter what claims other programmes make. Cool

I can't answer that (though I do Ageless), but my way of preventing them is to be really aware of my expressions and avoid frowning. If I need to raise my eyebrows, I do it lifting the whole scalp. This takes a little practice, but is very worthwhile. It's basically what botox does, without the cost: just let those frowning muscles atrophy through underuse.

The Ageless 3rd edition, available as a download (probably) later today on lulu.com, has alternative ways of addressing the brow. Needl is on the right track about relaxing the brow, but the new edition has alternative methods of challenging it without the medium-term wrinkling characteristic of a serious contraction of the muscles.
People who already have Ageless can contact steve at sroyce65@yahoo.com and get a fairly substantial discount.

My version/understanding of his method does not even temporarily wrinkle the brow. But I'm sure you're right and I'm wrong. Doesn't matter.

Oh OK, I get you now. You understand it as not wrinkling the brow. That is true if you don't do the whole scalp exercise as Tom directs but only do the Occipitalis part of it. The first part of the scalp exercise in Tom's program involves raising eyebrows and that does wrinkle the forehead temporarily. See Tom's second paragraph (I've fixed the link):

http://www.shapeyourface.com/syfbb/viewtopic.php?p=337#p337

Tom does say the Frontalis part of the exercises is not necessary or can be added later so if someone doesn't want to do it to avoid creating even temporary wrinkles, s/he don't need to.

^^ Personal opinion, not fact!

Not denigrating FE or you but how many other programs have you actually done? Several of us have done more than LouLou and FE and know that there are many many ways to get results, not just one. Different programs work differently for different people, or some are just explained better for the learning impaired amongst us!

I do raise the frontalis simultaneously, exercising it while avoiding wrinkles, but let's not discuss it further (including all those private messages) on this point. We'll have to agree to disagree. On what I do and you think I do. In my home, on my face, which you've never seen.

With all due respect, I don't have to have seen your face to join in a discussion and to address something you posted on a public forum. Nothing in our discussion required me to have seen your face so again, you lost me with that one. You posted something that was incorrect and confusing as it appeared contradictory to me. I PMed you to try to understand but it seemed you were not getting what I was asking so I decided to show you what I thought you meant by editing your post so you could see my POV. You then explained what you meant finally!!! and NOW your original post made sense to me, hence the reason I wrote "Oh OK, I get you now" ignoring your unnecessary sarcasm.

So I beg your pardon but I have no idea why you got you knickers in a bunch. I just did not understand your POV and wanted clarification so I could follow the discussion. Then after I got where you were coming from, I thought I would share why I was confused by pointing out that there is temporary wrinkling in Tom's exercise thinking that because you are part of a discussion, perhaps you cared to know where *I* was coming from. Oy vey!

Anyway, sorry Ageless folks for this distraction. Nice to see there's an added exercise or exercises to address the 11's.

BTW, if anyone wants to know what is wrong with doing what I have highlighted in boldface, PM me or visit Tom's forum to see what he says about that.

You are making this look like my fuss, when you're the one who has been messaging me privately, telling me I'm somehow wrong!

I would really appreciate it if you no longer send private messages to me, thank you.

I quit sending PMs to you when I realized it was futile and then posted what I was trying to tell you, so I don't know why you're still talking about them.

And quit making it sound as if I was wagging a finger at you and admonishing you in my PMs. If there is one thing everyone knows about Nonie is I will post evidence in a heartbeat. My PMs to you were simply trying to understand you. I was asking what you meant. And then you answered telling me what the exercise does. I then asked (Font in blue is from MY PMs to you):

Quote:
So are you saying that's a bad thing or a good thing? On the one hand you say that the exercise does NOT temporarily wrinkle the brow...then on the other hand you say you are too vain for that. So are you saying that you prefer to wrinkle the brow because of vanity or did you mean to write something else?


Your response talked about Tom explains it better to which I wrote:


Quote:
I know what Tom says. I do the program remember. I'm just pointing out that you contradicted yourself. You wrote:

[I quoted your post here highlighting in red the line where you said there is not even wrinkling in Tom's exercise; then below that quote I wrote]

Which first of all is wrong because it DOES wrinkle the brow. You said it does not. And so I was saying following your first sentence that IT DOES NOT, then your next person [I meant to say line not person] that you wouldn't person [that word "person" should not have been there] want that out of vanity makes no sense.

In other words you meant to write

Quote:

BTW I am so comfortable wrinkling my brow and frowning. And my forehead looks fine (I shared images on Tom's forum of myself doing both). I think flexibility of the skin and facial muscles comes from being able to contract and stretch the muscles...working them in only one way I don't think keeps skin elastic. JMHO


After that PM, your response was so odd that it was clear we were not on the same page. I was writing to you as I would write to a friend and was not being funny at all. I have previously sent you a similar PM but then realized what you meant and told you I stood corrected and all was well so I have no idea what brought this apparent irritability on.

For the record, I meant no harm and I'm sorry to have bothered you.

And I'm DONE!

Hi Fawnie!

I should clarify... I am loulou Laughing

My post was referring to the term 'facialbuilding, which Deb has patented, I think. My programme lifts the face by tightening the ropes that pull the face up, reversing the downward slide that gives you jowls, nasal folds and flat cheeks, and then separate exercises for eyes and a bit for brow. Flexeffect has a volume of work that will eventually build the facial muscles.

Of course people now adapt the word to say 'face building' or some such label.If someone is interested in Facialbuilding, Flexeffect is the original,and the best programme. It's misleading that this term is used for programmes that aren't Facialbuilding at all, so the distinctive nature of Flexeffect isn't clear to people.

Hi everyone

Just reporting back that after 9 months I am delighted with the results I am getting with Ageless.

I want to lose about 2 stone and am now terrified that I will undo all the good work. Any tips on how to lose weight without causing problems with the face.

I was thinking along the lines of losing 2 lbs a week and continuing with Ageless. I have also bought the Ageless Hotspots but not started it yet and not sure if this would be a better program to do with weight loss.

Any advice? Unfortunately, I do have to lose weight not just tone up. In my job I walk all day and will be doing Callanetics.

Thanks everyone xx
