"Growing the underlying muscle fills and stretches out the saggy facial skin, which with age becomes less elastic and with less fat underneath to plump it up", lead study author Murad Alam, MD, vice chair and professor of dermatology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a Northwestern Medicine dermatologist, explains to Yahoo Lifestyle. By 2021, this number is expected to reach $331.41 billion.

Facial exercises were developed by Gary Sikorski of Happy Face Yoga, a co-author on the study.

To do this facial exercise, one needs to open the mouth and form O, then position the upper lip over teeth and smile to lift the cheek muscles up.

Another exercise is called "The Happy Cheeks Sculpting": Purse your lips to cover your teeth and then smile forcing your cheek muscles up, placing fingers on the corners of your mouth and sliding them up to the top of the cheeks. Place palms on cheeks and press fingers across temples. Hold for 20 seconds.

There has been recent interest in the lay community in facial exercises or facial "yoga" that can rejuvenate the aging face, presumably by inducing underlying muscle growth. At home, they continued to do these exercises for a total of 20 weeks.

The change was measured through photographs and blind assessed by dermatologists - which means they didn't know the participants or anything about the study.

The dermatologists were blinded to the experiment, in order to avoid potential bias. They were also asked to guess the age of each woman before the study, and at weeks 8 and 20.

People have been doing these types of facial exercises, or facial yoga, for years, but this is the first study to look into whether it actually works. Instead of undergoing anti-aging skin therapies and care routines, middle-aged women undergoing this non-toxic method can have a younger appearance with fuller upper and lower cheeks and reduce some visible signs of aging, the study further showed.

The failure to maintain an average monthly balance of Rs 3,000 draws a penalty of up to Rs 100 plus service tax. If the shortfall is 50 per cent or less, then the bank charges Rs 50 plus service tax.

Facial yoga is known to increase the blood circulation on your face which eventually leaves a natural glow, it tightens your skin which makes it look more firm and healthy, it releases tension and removes even the slighter signs of aging.

After the experiment was over, dermatologists confirmed outstanding results: there was nearly a "three-year decrease in age appearance over a 20-week period", Alam said. Exercises can strengthen the facial muscles, and those firmer muscles can help the shape of the face appear fuller and more youthful.

The women were between 40 and 65 and had mild to moderate facial atrophy-another word for thinning and sagging skin-related to aging and sun damage.

"That's nearly a three-year decrease in age appearance over a 20-week period", Alam said. Not necessarily, but they're certainly worth a try.

"Assuming the findings are confirmed in a larger study, individuals now have a low-priced, non-toxic way for looking younger or to augment other cosmetic or anti-aging treatments they may be seeking", said Alam.
