Does face yoga cause more wrinkles?

No, if you do the exercises correctly. Moving your face randomly is not good. When you practice the face yoga poses, you move very slowly and you understand how to move your facial muscles. Very often when people start doing face yoga they see asymmetry or wrinkles they have never seen before. Why? They have started paying more attention to their faces and they look at their faces more closely. They exercise in front of a mirror and keep observing the facial movements, how it feels, how it looks and they start seeing things they never noticed before.

What is a good age to start practicing face yoga?

Face yoga is for everyone and there is no age restriction. Starting face yoga poses when you are young will gain you the benefit of being aware of your facial expressions, how you move your face, how you carry your posture and how not to create unwanted wrinkles. Awareness is the key. You can look younger, better and more confident at every age. Regardless of your age, you are able to tone and strengthen the facial muscles the same way as you can tone and strengthen the body muscles. You want to move your muscles to increase blood circulation. When you intentionally move your facial muscles that are connected to the nerves, you are stimulating your brain as well. My children practice face yoga with me sometimes, they enjoy it. I do not talk about the wrinkles, they do not care. Instead I talk about the muscles, they are amazed how many muscles we have and how we move them. There is no such age as too young or too old.

How often should I practice face yoga?

Exercise daily to achieve and later maintain the results. 10 minutes of daily workout brings more benefits than a “marathon” workout once in a while. It is ideal to practice 5-15 minutes a day right in the morning after you wake up and then in the evening before bedtime. Once you learn how to practice face yoga poses correctly and do not need to be looking in a mirror anymore, you can then exercise whilst working on the computer, watching TV, cooking, washing dishes or walking in a park. Everyone gradually finds out what suits them the best.

When will I see the results?

Some people can see the changes after the first session. The result is better blood circulation and therefore more oxygen and more nutrients flow into the skin. Most people feel and see the results after 2-3 weeks of regular practice. The first results are very subtle. Consistence, discipline and patience are required to achieve the desired results.

Can I practice face yoga even though I have Botox or I have a face-lift?

Yes, you can. Face yoga practice can be combined with other facial treatments. However, since Botox prevents the muscle contraction and so suppresses their movements, it can be hard to move the facial muscles at first. If you feel extreme discomfort, please stop the exercise and consult with your doctor. Face yoga teaches you to be aware of your daily facial expressions and builds up your muscle strength and as a result you may not need Botox refill as often or perhaps at all if you become a devotee to face yoga practice. If you do not want to give up the Botox in certain areas such as forehead, you can still exercise the rest of your face.
