I've been "Flexing" since 2003. I was in my mid-forties then, and although I did look young for my age (most people thought I was in my early 30s), I knew that wouldn't last forever. I figured my youthful appearance was a "freebie," but eventually, I'd have to start investing some time and energy in order to hang on to it.
It made sense to me that the infrastructure of muscle under the face could be built up and firmed, just like the rest of the body. I Googled and found Deb's regimen; my hunch was right on. After I started the regimen, I also found a whole lot of wonderful, friendly co-Flexers on the FlexEffect forum!
This exercise system is much different from others because you apply resistance - HARD resistance - with your hands. Consequently, the results, for most Flexers, appear before they even expect them to.
Don't waste your time or money on anything less. THIS is the real deal. And please come and say "hi" on the forum! :-)

I've been doing Flex Effect since 2004. I experienced a horrible disease state that went undiagnosed and untreated for nearly 10 years. I lost a LOT of muscle mass everywhere. Under my eyes looked like road maps and the flesh on my jaws was starting to hang! e[...] Flex Effect changed my life. Seriously. I'm sneaking up on 45 and it's not uncommon for people to guess my age at around 30-ish. The DVD is great for daily workouts, but the book is the best for targeting specific areas and Deborah has several different exercises for most areas so you can do what you need to do.
Remember, the muscles in your face are just like the ones in your body! If you're not committed to your optimal health, exercise doesn't do you as much good. Nutrition, Nutrition, Nutrition!

If your skin is sensitive, this program overworks it terribly - you end up looking odd. I had the audacity to say this on their Workshop Forum (after almost 3 years of faithful training to the letter and even worked with a trainer once) - and they banned me from the Workshop. Hysterical. If you can't take criticism, must be weak somewhere.
