When you say you lost weight, was it all over or just your face? What did you have done?

I had a laser device called Sciton. It had three settings one was hair removal, the other was a scar removal so actually removes the top layer of the skin, and the one I had was literally just heat, maybe some kind of BBL device. I got too nervous looking it up as it was all negative stories, so I stopped. I had no problems before and only used this as I was excited to have a free treatment, as it was owned by a friend of mine. I was actually on holiday so crammed in 3 treatments two weeks apart. Maybe it was too many too close together, plus they put it on a very high setting. I've heard that the high setting and too close together is bad. Anyway, I really am not looking to be told what I did wrong, rather than any positive information I could do to improve the huge amount of fat loss I experienced. I was even trying to tell myself I'm just imagining it, but the change was so significant that my friends keep commenting till now. I'm now looking for a way to increase the volume of the face and was wondering maybe face exercises could help this.. Any suggestions would be warmly welcomed. Thanks!

Have you looked at http://iplandlaserdamagesupport.prophpbb.com/ ?

There are stories very similar to yours, and I hope they won't depress you too much, but some have also posted info about things that have helped. I have to say, though, from what I read, that fat loss has been the most resistant to positive changes, but I wish you well.

gracey77, Ageless is a targeted program with very few exercises, and I don't recall any designed to bulk up the muscles. Flex Effect is another resistance based program with more exercises. Maybe ask your question on an FE thread or on their own website. They've got trainers to answer questions.

Going in another direction entirely, there is an EDS thread "Lipo-filling (FAT) stimulation action on topicals". I can't post a link but you can find it by searching for "lipo-filling". The thread talks about an ingredient called volufiline which stimulates fat proliferation. It's mostly used by people who want larger breasts (!), but some have tried it on other areas, like hands. One woman reported that she found it effective, but discontinued use because she was afraid it would effect her hormones. As far as I know, though, volufiline does not affect estrogen levels, but rather works on fat cells. So, you might want to have a look see on that thread to see if there's anything useful.

By the way, the volufiline which is the name of the product that I read has this filling effect, I searched on the internet, and it seems like it's an ingredient rather than a product, as there are many different products that contain this ingredient. Would anyone know which is the most effective for the face? I found one called Total Curve Cream which contains it, any info on that or other products with the same ingredient?

Thanks again!

I just started Ageless last week and although it made some significant improvements in lifting and firming my cheeks (yay!), my eyes started to look really bad.. Not just bad, but it was like they just sunk in like two little buttons... lol
I am wondering why there aren't any eye exercises except 1... ? It just seems that the cheeks are being so developed, and the eye part is just not following along.. has anyone been experiencing this ? Is this something that will get better in time ? I am not new to facial exercise. I have been doing Flexeffect forever ! Thanks

So sorry for the technical probs... The Ageless site is up again, also we've put together a video of the new exercises. If someone has already bought the 3rd edition, please email and we'll send it out to you.

Hi Loulou,
I bought the 3rd edition (and already have the old video). I've sent four emails over the last 2 weeks (to Steve and Ellen) trying to get the video for the new edition--is there a better way to do it?

thanks,
Katie

Hi everybody : )

First time poster but I have been watching this thread for while.
I am 37 year old male who in my twenties lost about 80 pounds. Back then I didn't know much about nutrition, so I starved myself quite a bit just to be sure that I would loose weight and it all took quite a toll on my face. The result was a nasolabial fold from the nose to the corners of my mouth especially pronounced in the left side of my face, which is also combined with a genetic disposition for this (when I look at my mother and grandfather who also has the fold) I chose to do something about it 6 months ago and try out ageless and have been doing all the exercises two times a week (except the occasional exercises which I admit I missed to do a bit in my routine). Until recently I have had amazing results. The nasolabial fold has become smaller and I got remarks about how good I was looking and I was really happy that it worked. Until about a month ago where I have been going through some emotional stress and not slept so well during a very hot month of july and sadly my face is starting to hang again especially the nasolabial fold on my left side. Also a small pouch has developed beneath the fold and generally there has suddenly been a loss of elasticity of the skin (almost overnight). Now, should I stop doing the exercises and wait my time or just continue? I read earlier in the thread about a user who went through a bad experience like me and her face didn't went back to its normal state so i am a bit worried to continue with the program. I believe I have not been overdoing the exercises but in hindsight I wonder if I have been grabbing the flesh to tight and therefor overbuild some areas...any inputs appreciated..Thanks! Smile

If you want to train harder, you can, but the minimum recommendation is to do the Day 1 exercises on one day, followed by the Day 2 exercises on the 2nd day, then a day off, then repeat.

I've been super lazy lately, just doing the bare minimum, but I was doing the full routine 3-4 times a week.

You want to be careful about some of the exercises and not overdo them. But the first 4, you can do a lot of them with no ill effects, I've found.

I don't have the new video - I had the one with the birds chirping before I wiped out my files by mistake. I hadn't used it in quite a while but already had the routine down pat. I have the new book but haven't really delved into it or changed my routine as I find it works very well for me. Smile

Hi, hope this is for Ballerina (hi ballerina:)). We are very much still in business and sorry people have been finding it so hard to buy our programme. I see there are people who have been waiting a long time for an answer to their post also. Apologies, I'm on the case, Loulou xx

Hi LouLou

I bought ageless if you dare - book and dvd - and life got in the way (back in Feb 2010!). Just dug it out and can't find the DVD file (had the chirpy birds on it). I wondered if i could get another link? Alternatively, I would be very happy to buy again BUT where is it? Website isn't up. Could you post the link or PM me re downloading a copy of the old one? Thanks very much.

Looking at lou lou's site i am reminded, even, more so, of why i was attracted to her program in the first place. She is concerned with the dynamic 'agelessness' of the vibrant and expressive faces of women of all ages, not just imo the sad/plastic longing for 'youthfulness' as an ideal in itself.

after doing her program and seeing the results i did i also incorporated other facial exercise programs as well…but i never would have gotten involved with any facial exercise program if it wasn't for lou lou's mind/spirit/physical approach
