Face Workout vs. Facial Procedure: Which is worth it?

For the past few years, all the hype has been around self-care – and we’re all for it. While many of us juggling jobs, families, relationships and more, it’s important to find time to care for ourselves. One of the best ways to exhibit self-care is through an awesome workout.

These days, multiple fitness studios – from spin studios to boxing gyms – claim to be the latest and greatest workout. In the cosmetology world, there are even facial workout studios. And these studios don’t stop at just ready-to-use facial massage tools often found in major retail locations.

What’s the hype with face workout studios?

Facial workout studios suggest that face workouts take the concept of a facial massage, combined with anti-aging cosmetic treatments, to a new level. Using a series of skin-boosting technologies and a high-intensity sports massage, many face workouts can help tighten, tone, and sculpt the face, leading to a tighter and more radiant appearance.

Are there downsides to a face workout?

Wrinkles. And no one wants that. Increased facial muscle movements during these workouts can lead to wrinkle formation. Facial workouts can improve circulation in the face, but many facial plastic surgeons agree that it doesn’t really help with preventing signs of aging. Overall, a facial workout may feel great, but the benefits are minimal don’t last long.
