Eliminating Wrinkles: Just a New Fad Away?

As the latest inspired fad in the fight against the effects of aging, the Face Slimmer Exercise Mouthpiece claims to help eliminate the wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth. Similar to the wax lips that we all used to love chewing on as kids, the device is little more than a pair of rubber lips that is placed snugly in the mouth and behind the teeth. Although the manufacturers claim that the Face Slimmer can dramatically tone the skin to smooth out wrinkles, recent evidence indicates otherwise.

Does It Really Work?

With a hefty price tag of $78, it had better deliver on the advertised guarantees. However, the device has been shown to bring lackluster results. After weeks of using the Face Slimmer, studies have demonstrated that there is no noticeable difference in the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth. Although the manufacturer claims that the device can be used in your spare time and on the go, the mouthpiece is not practical for use in public. Besides the big goofy pair of bright red lips, the device makes the user drool more than exercise mouth muscles. In addition, studies report the development of uncomfortable jaw tension and increased gag reflex from wearing the mouthpiece. Yet again, another outrageous beauty product has dealt empty promises to make a few bucks.

Better, Proven Techniques

Instead of being reeled in to this device or other similar products on the market that may not work, it is highly recommended that you opt for better techniques that have been proven to get rid of the facial signs of aging. With a free consultation at our Palm Beach Gardens plastic surgery center, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Mark Pinsky, MD, will demonstrate which surgical or non-surgical treatment methods will help you receive the best results.

For instance, a face lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that has been proven to offer patients long-term results to tone skin and minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles for years to come. With a face lift, you will be able to reverse the effects of gravity and aging by tightening the deeper tissues of the face. For those looking for a less invasive procedure, Botox and dermal fillers can be injected into the face to produce the same results, without surgery. Since there are so many proven options available, we encourage you to visit our plastic surgery office today to discover a treatment regime that fulfills your desire for a wrinkle-free appearance.
