If you're anxious to erase a few years without surgery, hypnotherapy may soon become your ultimate beauty secret.
Hypnoxis a 25-minute audio recording designed to give your facial muscles a workout while you sleep. By flexing your muscles in a specific sequence, the treatment attempts to re-train your facial muscles so that you are less likely to frown, squint or exaggerate your facial expressions - the expressions that often lead to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hypnox promises to tighten and tone the skin so that wrinkles fade away permanently. All you need to do is pop in the CD before bedtime and listen to the voice of a trained therapist who guides you through the hypnotherapy session. You'll begin to relax and fall into a meditative mode as you re-train specific muscles across the forehead, across the bridge of the nose and around the eyes. Botox has long been a non-surgical choice for those who want to get rid of frown lines or wrinkles across the forehead, but requires 'freezing' the muscles in place. Hypnoxoffers a natural solution for reducing wrinkles and improving the contours of the face without any needles or incisions.
The makers of Hypnox suggest that "Hypnox will prevent the negative stress which manifests in your face during sleep (ie tooth grinding, jaw clenching, tongue thrusting, scowling and frowning) while your subconscious teaches you to become more aware of - and to release – any unnecessary tensions in your face during the day."
Is it really time to say 'no' to Botox and give those facial muscles a workout instead? Facial yoga works using a similar strategy, encouraging progressive relaxation to tighten and tone muscles in the face and neck area. Laughter Yoga also helps target key facial muscles so that wrinkles and lines are less likely to appear.
Prevention, it seems, is still one of the best anti aging secrets.
