Facial Flex Instructions

How to use Facial-Flex

To make sure that you get the best results from your device please follow the Facial Flex instructions carefully. Ensure that the resistance band is securely positioned in the centre of the device. Look at yourself in a mirror, holding your head straight. Open your mouth wide and place the Facial Flex exerciser between the corners of your mouth with the larger part of the end butts inside your mouth and the smaller part outside. Ensure that the elastic band is at the front of the device.

Contract and expand your mouth for two minutes, working the muscles against the resistance of the band. As soon as you are familiar with the action, and you feel able, increase the strength of the band to encourage your muscles to work harder. This will speed up the benefits to the contour of your face as it becomes firmer. To maximise your progress be sure to use your Facial Flex every day. Replace the bands every week to prevent them from becoming stretched and therefore less effective.

Rosemary talks about how to fast-track your progress.

Fast-track your progress

As your facial muscles become stronger, you will be able to work them harder which will enable you to see the physical signs of your facial muscles lifting to give you a more youthful facial contour. As with all exercise, the greatest benefit comes from regular practice.

For the fastest and best results, aim to use the strongest resistance band that you can and be sure to use your Facial‑Flex every day without fail for at least two minutes, morning and evening.

You can double up the bands (no more than two bands at a time) to load the resistance even more so that your muscles work harder as you use your Facial‑Flex.

Replacing the resistance band


Remove the worn resistance band and discard. Pick a new band, hold it between your thumb and index finger and place it around the small hooks at the top of the device.

Using your fingers, check that the device slides easily when compressed and released.

Helpful hints

  • Wash your Facial‑Flex regularly in warm (not hot) water with a mild detergent. Rinse and allow to dry naturally.
  • For hygiene reasons, your Facial‑Flex should not be shared.
  • If your lips are fragile, or if the corners of your mouth are sensitive, apply an appropriate cream to your lips and work with the lightest resistance band. Also, apply a drop of vegetable oil to the bars to ease the sliding movement.
  • Proceed at your own pace. Stop exercising for one or two days if your muscles feel tired or painful.
  • Keep your Facial‑Flex out of reach of children who may want to imitate you and could therefore inadvertently swallow it.

Consult your Doctor or Dentist

Before using Facial‑Flex please check with your medical practitioner if you:

    • Have recently had facial, chin or neck surgery, injuries or deficiencies.
    • Suffer Temporomandibular Joint / Muscle Dysfunction (TMJ)
    • Have had recent dental or orthodontic work
    • Are under a physician’s care for any facial condition or disability
    • Have any abnormal facial condition

How to reassemble a detached device


The Facial‑Flex exerciser is made of two separate interlocking parts which are clipped together and it is quite common for them to come apart, often when changing the band or during cleaning. This is mentioned in the manufacturer’s instructions.

They are quite easy to clip back together if you know how to do it!
