2009 - The power of Isometrics: Expression lines disappear in 30 days by training facial muscles 30 minutes a day
Aging of the face and neck is associated with skin, derma and muscles stress.
Even if it is not genetically determined, the sustained contraction of superficial
and deep facial muscles determine a faster deterioration of damaged skin and
an impaired blood supply of derma. Isometric stretching and muscles exercise
is recognized as the correct way to ease tensions and pain in muscles. It is
widely used in sports medicine and pain control, but it has been completely
neglected in Dentistry and Facial Aesthetics. Adapting isometric exercise to
facial muscles leads to a very fast rebalancing and a disappearance of all
lines associated with sustained muscle contraction.
Rebalancing and tonifying the deep and superficial muscles of the face using
isometrics is the only scientifically based strategy to improve, protect and
prevent the effects of time on the facial expression. Such approach should be
the foundation of any further intervention like plastic surgery, botox or fillers.
Face, Head and Neck Rebalancing Program with MioBalance®
The 30 minutes presentation is intended to explain how to achieve and
maintain balance and tonicity in the Face, Head and Neck Muscles using a
specific passive exercise obtained wearing a new mouth device that uses
isometric techniques. MioBalance® mouth device can relax the lines that
stress and tiredness eventually mark on the face and neck. We can all
experience once again our natural facial appearance and the unique feeling
that brings with it of being alive and happy.
Training with MioBalance® does not modify the features of the face. No
anesthesia, needles, surgical, invasive or irreversible procedures are
involved. It is free of pain and totally comfortable. Facial expression is
improved but not changed, because no mass is added to muscles, simply
tone and the return of your natural expressive face.
• The Face, Head and Neck Rebalancing Bite called MioBalance® offers a
natural and painless way to relax and rebalance the deep and superficial
muscles of face, head and neck. It also trains certain facial muscles (lips,
cheeks and tongue) to stretch and acquire extra tonicity.
• Expression lines in the face can become shallower or fainter, according to
the quality of the skin (damaged skins will show least effects).
• The deep facial muscles can achieve a toning up that can give a fresher
and rested look to the face.
• It is worn just up to 1 hour a day, also when involved in daily activities (with
exclusion of those activities that full attention and may involve third people
• The wearing of the bite does not interfere with oral hygiene habits.
Face, Head and Neck Rebalancing Bite MioBalance®, developed by Prof
Megighian at University of Florence, Italy, consists of a soft plastic removable
custom manufactured mould that fits with the upper arch, to which two hard
plastic wedges are attached.
