Face Exercises for Mini-Face Lift?

Do face exercises work like a mini-facelift? Can it really lift face muscles? I mean, can I get a natural mini-facelift by doing facial exercises?

If so, can you tell me which ones are the most important ones to do? I'm over 50, and my face has fallen, and I can't get it back up! The only anti-aging therapy I've done for my face is Botox, but that's not helping to lift or prevent my lower face from drooping.

I don't want to do Ultherapy or something like that because it's expensive and I've heard the results are not that great, so please don't suggest that option. I want the least invasive way for a mini-facelift.

Hi Sofia,

Thanks for your questions regarding face exercises. In my experience, face exercises have built up and lifted my facial muscles. I don't I would compare the results from face exercises to a mini or full facelift. Still, I have seen (as have many avid face exercisers) beautiful results from doing proper, complete face exercises consistently.

Also, several studies show that people who in engage in face exercises look 3-5 years younger than their chronological age.

Here are some things to consider:

1. It won't happen overnight. Some results can be seen in a few weeks, depending on your age, the condition of your skin, and how much sagging you had to start with. But if done correctly, you will see dramatic results within 6-12 months.

2. Consistency is the key. You need to perform face exercises several times a week (Not Daily – skin and muscle need to time to recover). But spaced out even over a 7 day period. Like Monday, Wednesday, Saturday.

3. In the beginning, you made need to do face exercises three times a week, but as years go by, you can get away with a simple maintenance workout once or twice a week.

4. You need to make sure you follow an excellent face exercise program that includes all the muscles of the face and includes a skin massage too. This way, your face muscles, and skin get the benefits all in one workout.

While your results will not look like you had a facelift (sometimes that can be a good thing because some facelifts look so harsh and unnatural), your face will look fuller, lifted, and your skin will be smoother and less crinkly-wrinkly.

See samples of face exercises, my before and after pictures and check out the face muscle chart to see which exercises work which face muscles.

Please Note: I am 5 years younger and a bit thinner in my Before picture. Yet, my face looks slimmer and tighter (especially around the jowls) in the after picture!

Hope this helps.

Deep plane face lift vs Non-surgical face lifts through face exercises
by: Bette123

I choose the deep plane facelift surgical method as I do not have enough time to practice traditional facelift methods daily. My grandmother and I live together in my home.

I have been working on-site for years and never got time to care for my skin and health.

Now my grandmother has health concerns, and I have to take care of her too. Due to work-related stress and other responsibilities, I have aged too much. I look way more than my actual age.

So I searched for some treatment methods and found a center where they do the deep plane facelift (www.solomonfacialplastic.com/surgical/face-neck-eyes/deep-plane-facelift-toronto) for an affordable cost.

Do you have any other tips or suggestions on this? How do you deal with stress and care in day-to-day life?


Even after undergoing plastic surgery, face exercises are, by far, one of the best ways to maintain results and improve the quality of the skin.

A face lift does nothing to help the quality and supplements of your complexion. And it does nothing to improve facial muscle tone.

Plus, face exercises like the one I do, only takes less than 15 min. two or three times a week when you first start out.

Then, once you get the results you're looking for, you only need to them a few times a month to keep it. Muscles have memory, so you can keep your beautiful, firmer facial contours easily.

You can even do them while watching TV! 😊

You can see my before and after picture here. They really do work.

While plastic surgery can provide significant enhancements, its results are not permanent, and facial muscles and skin continue to age and sag over time.

However, incorporating regular facial exercises (after receiving clearance from your doctor and once you've fully healed) can help you keep your new beautiful results for a longer duration.

Face exercises can help strengthen facial muscles, enhance blood circulation, and stimulate collagen production, leading to improved skin tone and elasticity.

So by engaging in face exercises, you can contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin, promoting a more youthful and vibrant look that complements the benefits of your plastic surgery.
