"When I founded Facialbuilding in 1979, all facial exercising was considered risky, and what I developed — synergistic resistance training for the face — was considered flat-out insane! Today, the Third Edition of FlexEffect is considered no less shocking. While researching new possibilities for FlexEffect's Third Edition, I was led into developing a new training technique I call Cross Stretching. Again, I expected a firestorm of naysayers, and I was right. I'm excited to finally see a real scientific outpouring on skin stretching and its effects on the body," says Deborah Crowley, a former competitive bodybuilder and author of the FlexEffect Facialbuilding 275-page training book of exercises for the face.
The FlexEffect Facialbuilding Third Edition's Cross Stretch facial exercises involve light and fast stretching of the skin in a crisscross pattern across the face, a technique that actually causes mild damage to the skin. As Crowley wrote in the Facialbuilding manual, it is precisely this micro-damaging effect that sets off a chemical-physical response in the body, including the release of important growth factors; overall, this response repairs and strengthens the dermal tissue, resulting in younger skin that is thicker and stronger, with an increased rate of cellular turnover.
“The hottest topic in skin research today is ‘Fibroblast.’
The science behind FlexEffect's facial exercises was confirmed in a recent study by the Tissue Engineering and Wound Healing Laboratory at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School; Tufts University School of Medicine; and the University of Padua, among other contributing authors. In the study, researchers noted that the "accumulation of neuropeptides in both epidermis and dermis were significantly increased after cyclical stretching of skin."
In layman's terms, the research concluded that by stretching the skin, cellular physiology is affected in a positive way, Crowley explains. Following the smallest amount of tissue damage, which is not visible to the naked eye, the body’s natural healing process takes over, a reaction triggered by FlexEffect's Cross Stretching technique. As it heals, the body creates new collagen and elastin fibers, accompanied by a build-up of glycosaminoglycans (molecules that restore the skin’s moisture capacity); the result, Crowley notes, is firmer, more elastic skin with fewer facial wrinkles.
