Hi bobo,

Yeah, the upper lids change very quickly. It's a muscle that's hard to locate at first but just trying isolates it and it gets strong and firms up in no time.

And it's so good that you're feeling your face come to life 👻

Pm me your email and steve will sort out your ebook. It shouldn't happen that you're without it, he'll send you a replacement pretty much immediately. This applies to anyone who hasn't downloaded their file, just bear in mind that we're in England and sometimes we're not awake 😎

All best, and thank you for your lovely feedback!

Loulou 😊👍

dobatz - I looked at your photos... your eyes are beautiful! You have also had very good results.

Regarding your 'eye bags' - if you hadn't mentioned it, it wouldn't be noticeable. However, I see what you are talking about... and I don't think the exercise has caused them because in the bottom left 'before' picture you can see it, but you can't see it in the bottom 'after' photo.

It looks like something that is just your natural face, and only appears at certain angles/light? In any event, to me it doesn't look like any ageing related either - it just looks natural and really not noticeable as something on it's own - your eyes are so stunning I'm sure nobody else notices either...because there is nothing to notice! As Loulou said, you are probably just being too critical of your face. Enjoy being beautiful!

Karenlee, thanks for your input x

Dobatz, I hope this gives you encouragement. You're a beautiful woman and your face is growing more beautiful all the time! But do let me know if you need more help.

All best, loulou Smile

Hi Loulou,
I purchased Ageless two days ago. I'm using the derminator and doing Ageless facial exercises. I'm positive this topic has been covered before in this thread, but if you could exaggerate upon it it would be very beneficial to me. My main concern is mouth parenthesis. They are driving me mad!!! I believe you said that this is indicative of facial droop/cheek sag. I have two questions:

Is there an exercise that I can do to target this area? I believe you said to do the cheek exercises or all of day 1. But can we do this everyday? How many reps, and for how long?
Also, is there any exercises that I should avoid?

Thank you,
Lonnie

Hi,
I do the derminator and Ageless facial exercises. How long have you been doing them? Are you getting results? I think I'm going to take pictures and do a blog to document my anti aging journey.

Hi Lonnie,
Pretty much everything that changes as you age, including the parentheses you describe, are due to the mid face sagging. Please try to do all the Day 1 exercises. You can do them as often as you like, but don't try to do the Day 2 exercises more than twice per week.

It's important not to focus on any single Day 1 exercise, the rope-like muscles all need to be firm to maintain a taut control of the flesh.

All best, loulou 👸🏿

Dear Yola, hope you are going well. Have you tried using the massage exercises in the second Ageless book? It made a big difference to my creases. It's not on the site right now, but if you ask loulou or steve they will let you have one xxx

Hi
I'm confused,
I purchased programme around 3 months ago
Is this a different programme? set of exercises?
I have been religiously doing wk 1 set of exercises twice a wk and wk 2 once a wk
However couldn't say I am noticing much improvement if any.
Would it be wise to up the reps to more than 20 of each?
I have been sticking to 3 times a wk as keep hearing to not overdo things and most important to rest inbetween days?
On top of the exercises I also do the massage / pulling the skin.

Thought I should add to my message, that not all is negative of course
as mentioned previously I do notice my eyes appear wider. My face feels more alive as if it is definently being worked out, skin looks nice, thicker. No fears on pulling skin.
Just my problem area is lower face I am hoping to see more difference. But still the same sagging.
I guess it could take time
I will keep trying. Perhaps upping the reps and also I feel lying down doing these exercises feels nicer for me
How about combining exercises from other programmes, would this be frowned upon? not recommended? There are a couple exercise I struggle with.

Try uping the reps and see what results you get. That's the best way to test things out for yourself and then you will know.

Lower face does seem to take some time for people (myself included) but I know that I have to hit my lower face with other exercises too. Ageless on its own wasn't enough for my lower face and it really was visible in the mirror. Just my two cents!

Ballerina,
Ughhh you mean I have to buy something else? Lol... Thanks for letting me know, I appreciate it! I will give it 6 weeks and then try it out!
I have been having issues with the first Ageless purchase but it's just technical saving issues on my end. My phone is not allowing me to save it...frustrating!!

TheresaMary,
May I ask what other exercises you are doing for the lower face? Flex effect? I really need to become more disciplined with this stuff, but unfortunately right now I have several chronic health issues which are getting the best of me. I just don't want to look on the outside the way I feel on the inside...

Well you have to put things into perspective. I am in my late 60’s now, and have done facial exercises for well over 10 plus years and then some, so to know which exercises I am doing may not help you out exactly because I have done a multitude of programs. I don’t follow one program entirely but combine the best elements of each one I have done for my own face that gives me results. Plus you got to think about things like hormones, health and bone too! These are all factors involved in aging. I do use Flexeffect and Facial Magic and some Facercise (nose shortener for example) plus other things too. Yet I started out following each program individually and so took the best of what worked for my face, but that may not work for you.

This is my very first post. Very Happy I just purchased Ageless if You Dare! I need to download it and get busy. I really hope it helps. I am 59 and have terrible nasolabial folds/marionette lines. I recently spent (wasted) $2100 on Voluma. This was my 1st cosmetic treatment ever, and my doc suggested Voluma to reduce nasolabial folds/marionette lines by lifting and adding volume to my cheek area. It had zero effect on those folds and lines. It was a one-time gift from my husband, so I am really disappointed (and mad) that it had no effect. I can think of 100 things that my family could have used that money for and I feel very guilty about it . It was a very expensive lesson. Live and learn I guess. I am hoping to get some improvement from Ageless. I also just started dermarolling. I am hoping that at some time in the future I will be able to purchase Quasar Light too.

hi mammaherrera
In my experience someone will not look more drawn after doing the Ageless program than they were before

except for the period when you are recovering from the exercise and rebuilding the tissue.

Try leaving your face alone for three weeks so that it can recover from the after effects of exercise. You don't expect to be your liveliest the day after a marathon. Likewise you don't see the results of your work until the muscle has had time to rebuild.

Mammaherrera from memory you were also doing Tom Haggerty's program too - and so maybe if you were doing both together you could have overworked the muscles.

Hi Theresa Mary Smile

Mammaherrera,

if you overtrain you will look worn out for a time until your face has time to recover. The Ageless exercises are very intensive, which is why you only need to do them once or twice a week. Your skin will rebuild and show the fruits of your input in a week or two.

After that I recommend that you cut down drastically on the amount of work you're doing and while of course you're entitled to use whatever extra work you want I can't advise when you add exercises to the Ageless program.

All best, loulou

It's so NOT COOL to do other programs and then claim Ageless has done something negative to your face. If you don't do the Crush exercise ( which later additions leave out anyway ) none of the Ageless exercises do anything that would make the face thinner.

On the other hand... yola i agree that it gets expensive buying the massage book, especially when the original book was only $10!

Also we thought that the first Ageless book was complete in itself, and it's a bit irritating to have to buy something extra.

But it is a good program, and I Spose everyone wants to make a buck. I look a lot better since I started doing it without much downtime at all Smile

Hi ballerina,
Many thanks for your good feedback on the Ageless programme.

About the massage book. It's an option for people who like to follow a precise set of exercises, but the massage chapter in the basic Ageless book offers guidelines for how to massage, and the DVD that comes with it has a demonstration for how to massage.

The massage book isn't a necessity 😎

Loulou x

I just downloaded the dvd and attempted the first 10 exercises for the very first time. Wow, my facial muscles are out of shape! I am trying to mimic the facial expressions in the dvd, but I don't have enough control to move my muscles up to the center of my eye, up and out to my temples and straight out to the sides of my face in order to accomplish those first few exercises. I think I am going to need lots of practice, but it looks like it is going to be a lot of fun.
