Everyone is different, but I don't think so. I saw results in the first 3 weeks, and continued to improve. I dived right in and did the entire program 3 times a week. However, I saw my best results several months in. So it may be that she just didn't notice the small changes that occurred. My biggest challenge were my cheeks - everything was going south in a hurry. Ageless is AWESOME for cheeks, so I saw joy in a short time.

Hi Bellabambiiina,
There might have been positive changes before I noticed - maybe I'm not all that observant! I'm taking pictures with my webcam with is kind of shoddy, so it's possible positive changes were happening before, but I can't tell. But, all in all, my results are very subtle. I wish I were one of those super responders, but I guess it comes down to mostly genetics, facial structure and age. I have hollowing under eyes from loss of fat due to aging - but also have prominent cheeks with good forward projection. But the two combined make me look older - probably because it makes the hollowing look more severe. I hope I can lift up the lower face more with time - because nothing say aging quite like jowls!

So you're saying it took you a whole year and a half to see results? That's kind of a long time, isnt it?

i guess what I take away from this is that different people respond differently to facial exercise so it's not a one size fits all prescription whatsoever. I commend you for sticking to it that long.

Well, I've probably only stuck to it because it takes 5 minutes and something I do while watching tv. It's not a huge time commitment.

Well, if I was doing something and had no result for a few months, I'd probably give it up knowing me.

I've tried a few facial exercises (not speaking of Ageless specifically) and found that they actually made me look worse, and very quickly too. LOL

BellaB, I would say that's a good sign: your facial muscles respond quickly and strongly. So once you do need to lift parts or replace lost fat, it will be a case of finding the right exercises and your face should respond well.

Hi Ballerina, thanks for buying our upgrade! Deb taught everyone, including us, about the miracles that can be achieved with resistance training, industrial flesh and skin massage, and, latterly, the innovative bone massage and tempering,Deb is supportive of Ageless too, including us on her board and expressing her interest and positive view of Lou’s programme.
Deb’s programme is the product of her own reasoning, ideas and inspiration. At the Ageless office we admire Flexeffect because we know of no other programme (leaving ours aside!) that has the same thinking and experience behind it and the same integrity. We have no financial connection to Flexeffect, just similar interests, passions and desire to move forward and see what's possible
Very Happy Very Happy

I love it! I have the new book which I've only just skimmed, but I am very happy about the new additions and will get more into when I have more time. My printer is broken; otherwise I would just print it out and take it with me on my errands. Sad

I haven't read the flex 3rd edition so I don't pknow what's in it lBut the new Ageless has two other sets of exercises in addition to days 1and 2 very brief and full-on. Theres a lot of expression work too which I kinda think might be something quite exiting. This is exiting because this brief thing is already doing something good to my face

Hi--

Does anyone know if the DVD has been revised for the 3rd edition of Ageless?

I've got the DVDs for the 1st edition and Hotspots, but would get the new video if it covers the new material (just bought the book!).

thanks,

I just bought the 3rd edition. I haven't really gone through it, but did notice that "the crush" is not in there at all anymore - not even in the occasional exercises. I've been doing it, but maybe I should stop? Loulou?

Hi Beehive,
Crush isn't in the 3rd edition because when it's left out progress is more striking. On balance I thought the lack of short term improvements outweighs the long-term benefits of Crush. The 'sucked in' look detracts from the good differences the programme is making and it seemed more important to feel confident than to pull the cheeks in a fraction.

If you're doing Crush and past the initial few weeks, it's beneficial to keep doing it. I just wanted to make the first days and weeks as inspiring and motivating as possible.

All best, Loulou Smile

Haven't been on here for ages Laughing I have the 1st edition of Ageless, both the book and DVD.

Are there any additional exercises on the 3rd edition book and DVD that I'm missing out on? I know about the elusive Hotspots (which I also don't have).

If so, is there a way I can obtain the additional exercises/Hotspots I don't have?

Hi ljk,

I also have the 1st edition book and video. I contacted Steve and he said the video hasn't been updated, just the book.

The 3rd ed. book has been revised and reformatted and has a new, 3 week exercise schedule, and also has more detailed instructions for massages which are to be done twice a week.

There's enough that's new in the book that I thought it worth getting, and like others hope there will be a new DVD soon with gurnalongs!

I believe it was mentioned in an earlier post that Hotspots was available at this point only by contacting Steve directly.

Hope that helps,
Katydid

Thanks, Katydid99. May just spring for the 3rd edition book and ask about Hotspots.

I think the video clip of Ageless needs to be re-done, anyway. The (1st edition) exercises don't all run in sequence with the book (if you're new to the exercises you have to keep stopping the DVD. Not so much of a problem when you're used to them).

And the "Wish" exercise isn't even included in the video! I also felt the Massage section was a little vague for my liking and needed better techniques, explanations.

Some ideas for more intensive training (like FE's Bootcamps) or ways to mix up the exercises (to keep muscles guessing and add variety) are needed, too.

I also wonder if the forehead ("Lift Brow" - Frontalis) exercise is useful, maybe more attention needed there?

I'm sure these points have been covered much earlier on in the thread, though Smile

After reading the whole thread, I went ahead and ordered the 3rd edition download.
How long does it usually take to receive the download email?
I ordered Saturday morning and so far have not received anything. Hopefully it's because it's the weekend and I will get it tomorrow?
I am really exited about getting started Very Happy

Cini, you should check your spam email folder. If it's not there, I would send Steve and email.

Immacolata, I received the download the day after posting. I've only done the exercises three times so far.
I can definitely feel afterwards that my muscles have been worked and I guess now I have to be patient so see results Smile

This is a very long thread which I didn't have time to read in full so forgive me if this has already been asked. But I have major fat loss after a heat device/laser gone wrong. I am in my mid 30's and was wondering if there is anything at all to make the fat come back on the face? Or to at least make it look a little more filled out. I'm really getting tired of everyone telling me to eat more rice more pasta more cakes etc, just because my face makes me look so thin, however i'm not actually thin, just slim and curvy if anything. Can the fat eventually come back on it's own? even if it takes years? I had a much fuller face before, and this change was literally two weeks to a month after the heat device and got thinner and thinner over the months. It's now been a year and a half since... Any suggestions?
