  • tone

  • It is a well established physiological fact that the tone and healthy condition of muscle complexes require proper exercising, flexing and tensioning. (google.co.uk)
  • In consequence, the muscle tone of the facial tissues can be restored in a relatively brief period of time and/or the desired muscle tone level can be maintained over a period of many years by periodic use of the present device for a few minutes daily. (google.co.uk)
  • Accordingly, it is a primary object of this invention to provide a new and improved device for exercising and maintaining the tone of the facial muscle complex. (google.co.uk)
  • We tone our body's muscles,,, why not our face to prevent or decrease the saging of muscles, and thus the skin of our face. (smartskincare.com)
  • tissues
  • One of the major contributing reasons is the lack of sufficient blood seepage through infrequently exercised muscle complexes permitting such tissues to receive insufficient nourishment to maintain their full vigor and strength. (google.co.uk)
  • Unused muscle complexes remain untensioned for long periods with the result that there is slight or no blood circulation causing the muscle tissues to remain undernourished. (google.co.uk)
  • Inflation of this envelope under a suitable pressure forc ibly tensions adjacent muscle complexes thereby making it much easier for the subject to massage and manipulate these tissues either with or without the aid of finger manipulation applied on the outer surfaces of the face. (google.co.uk)
  • Another object of the invention is the provision of a method and apparatus usable within the mouth cavity for exercising the facial tissues. (google.co.uk)
  • face
  • There are four of these muscles on each side of the face. (simplysearch4it.com)
  • But if the underlying muscles are not developed the face will still present a flabby look, the jowl may sag and the appearance of a double chin be more pronounced. (simplysearch4it.com)
  • The childrens with with Down Syndrome often times have a low muscle tome in their face and therefore cannot apply suction to a bootle to feed. (instructables.com)
  • You need to build up a fit muscle memory to make it into a compact, tight muscle to change the shape of the muscle, which then in turn changes the shape of the face and the only way to do that is to regularly use the machine. (qvcuk.com)
  • We exercised our face muscles in a scary, but not too scary, funny way. (shefinds.com)
  • In 1919 Dr. Passot was known to publish one of the first papers on face-lifting, this consisted mainly on the elevating and redraping of the facial skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • The muscles of the face play a prominent role in the expression of emotion, and vary among different individuals, giving rise to additional diversity in expression and facial features. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gestalt psychologists theorize that a face is not merely a set of facial features, but is rather something meaningful in its form. (wikipedia.org)
  • Computer systems vary, in that some computerized systems used 3D animation software to model the face onto the skull, while other systems use a virtual sculpture system with Haptic feedback Haptic Feedback- The ability to feel the surface of the skull during analysis and also provide important skeletal details for facial reconstruction such as muscle attachment strength, position of eye, position of malar tubercle etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • faces
  • It is termed as "facial gymnastics or making faces" and will produce remarkable results when practiced faithfully and persistently. (simplysearch4it.com)
  • control
  • There are multiple muscles that control reflexes of blinking. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dystonia is a neurological disease affecting the brain's ability to fire neurons (which control muscle movement) correctly. (wikipedia.org)
  • The disease basically renders the sufferer unable to control the muscles in the affected area. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • It's great for firming up the skin but it only firms the surface skin so the underlying problem of the muscle slackness is what the Ageless Wonder would address. (qvcuk.com)
  • Diarrhea
  • Satoyoshi syndrome, also known as Komura-Guerri syndrome, is a rare progressive disorder of presumed autoimmune cause, characterized by painful muscle spasms, alopecia, diarrhea, endocrinopathy with amenorrhoea and secondary skeletal abnormalities. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • If you've used any form of facial fitness machine before, then I would use it every other day. (qvcuk.com)
  • although
  • and although this collapse lessens the uncontrollable twitching of the muscles, the newly relaxed status deprives the player of the lip flexibility needed to play a brass instrument. (wikipedia.org)
  • location
  • In the former case, it is possible to bring the injection needle to an optimal location in the desired muscle using EMG guidance as the alert patient looks in diagnostic directions, the needle is advanced until the electromyogram (the electrical signal from an activated skeletal muscle) indicates it is optimally positioned, whereupon the injection is completed. (wikipedia.org)
  • generally
  • Referring now to FIGURES l to 4, there is shown a preferred embodiment of the facial muscle conditioning device designated generally 10 and incorporating the features of the present invention. (google.co.uk)
  • body
  • He picked up on Darwin's concept of "rudimentary" organs such as listed in The Descent of Man: the muscles of the ear, wisdom teeth, the appendix, the coccyx (tail bone), body hair, and the semilunar fold in the corner of the eye. (wikipedia.org)
  • The skill of facial approximation is closely associated and related to forensic anthropology in that an artist specializes in the reconstruction of the remains of a human body. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some agents (e.g., botulinum toxin) can be injected at the insertional end of a muscle under visual guidance, using special forceps and allowed to diffuse posteriorly, whereas others (e.g., bupivacaine) must be distributed throughout the body of the muscle, which requires non-visual guidance. (wikipedia.org)
  • activity
  • This chapter summarizes research conducted to investigate the use of facial muscle activity for a reliable interface to identify voiceless speech based commands without any audio signals. (igi-global.com)
  • important
  • These muscles are not only imperative in blinking, but they are also important in many other functions such as squinting and winking. (wikipedia.org)
  • area
  • It comes with straight forward instructions so it'll be up and running in no time, and there's a headset so you don't even have to hold it onto the muscle area - you can use it sitting in front of the TV or even doing chores. (qvcuk.com)
  • But at the same time don't use it for a long period of time - use it for 5 minutes to begin with and you will actually ache the day after, especially if you have a weak area of facial muscle. (qvcuk.com)
