April 5, 2012 - PRLog -- FlexEffect® Facialbuilding®, a facial exercise program designed to get rid of undereye circles and other signs of aging, is promoting its new Cross Stretching exercises for the face, which are supported by a recent study published in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons' Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal. A new addition to FlexEffect's Facialbuilding Third Edition product, Cross Stretching incorporates micro-damaging facial exercises, which release the body's fibroblast cells to foster firmer, younger looking skin.

"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.’ Most studies are pointing to these cells as the possible be-all-end-all in tissue rejuvenation. Fibroblast cells found in the connective tissue produce and secrete fibers (collagens, elastic fibers and other substances), especially during wound healing and tissue repair. More accurately, fibroblasts secrete tropoelastin, the soluble, immature form of elastin. Experiments show that even though fibroblast cells are all about wound repair, a cut or puncture produces less fibroblast activity than does stretching the skin. The fibroblasts do not respond to everyday physiological strain on skin but do respond to skin stretched beyond normal levels,” Crowley stated in FlexEffect's Third Edition of exercises for the face.

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.
