41 and this seems to be the area that is showing my age. Just can't decide which system to start with.

Gretchen are you talking about what face exercise program to start with? If so, they all seem to address the jaw area if the results of the instructors are something to go by, and so you most likely will not be disappointed regardless of what program you go with.

But if I were you, before investing in a program, I'd do Tom's program found at www.shapeyourface.com and this is why:
    * The program is free and is short so you don't have to commit so much time to something you aren't even sure will work for you;

    * Tom's in his 70's and looks amazing and he credits his beautiful jawline and line-free face with his program (and I have friends who only do his program and swear by it. I do his program too when I don't have time to do CFF and I love it);

    * Tom's program is gentle and it's amazing how deep it works if you focus on proper form. Really read carefully through the whole forum so you don't miss any tips he shares. The forum discussions will also help clarify some exercises so you can do them correctly. As you will see from this thread, I personally believe "starting easy" is the secret to having good long-term results. It's what I did in the beginning of the 90's although I used Eva Fraser's program (the Beginner one) and I did it for a long time and that foundation really provided a good base for all I did later so that I've really been pleased with my results and they've got good lasting power so that I can go for days without doing anything and then do exercise one day and my face looks like I work out daily.


This question has been coming up lately and I recently shared an exercise that addresses that area. But I really would implore you to commit to a full program as your main workout (eg Tom's), and then adding one or two more exercises from another program will not really cause the awkwardness spot training can cause, or that replacing exercises within a program with others from another that don't complement the ones you're doing might cause. I usually say don't mix and match, but lest anyone misunderstand, I'm not against looking at several programs or doing more than one program, but I do think that you should do ONE full program at least first...so you have a program whose exercises work as a team for a nice uniform build. And then bonus exercises you add from elsewhere to address specific areas will probably be effective since all muscles are in good tone first from the full program you do so the additional exercises are building on tone you already have all over. Why I insist on a full program first is because sometimes it's not so much the area you see that is the problem, but it could be related muscles that are slack and that are causing this one attached to them hang or bulge out in an ugly way. So first toning the whole face will let you see really what is going on. And then AFTERWARD you can clearly see if you do need the target-specific exercises.

It's just so difficult to tell which facial exercise program is the real deal.... have read about several of them on here the last few years and can never decide.

That is true Gretchen which is why I suggest doing Tom's program because it doesn't ask you to do something that you may not have done sometime in your life even as a kid. In other words, you're not being asked to grab a part of your face and pull it in a way that is unnatural and scary but it's just asking you to do movements you may have done sometime in your life only you do them trying to keep the rest of your face relaxed and with control. You also do it with a moisturized face which makes your skin more supple and not crack from making faces. So a program like that I consider a good one to start with because you have nothing to lose. And who knows you may find you never need anything else.
