Developed and perfected over fifteen years, Carole Maggio’s revolutionary program, Facercise, combats the signs of aging-by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and improving muscle tone-naturally. Filled with dramatic before-and-after photos that illustrate the effectiveness of Facercise, this easy-to-follow book will help anyone achieve visible results-in less than a week.
* Diminish puffiness around the eyes
* Shorten and narrow the nose
* Smooth the chin, neck, and jawline
* Improve skin color and tone
* Lift eyebrows
* Recontour the cheeks
* Make lips fuller and more firm
I had to write to say how wonderful the Facercise program really is. I’m a 37 year old single woman who has lost 10 years off her face thanks to Carole Maggio! When I first purchased her book I didn’t think it was possible to realize these results, but thankfully — time has proven me wrong! The exercises are easy to do and very portable. When I travel, I just bring along my “Walkman” and do them in my hotel room or where ever I’m staying.

Before and after photographs illustrate the medical descriptions and vividly show the dramatic changes.
Facial Rejuvenation review:
I had never heard of these cosmetic procedures except for botox. I never considered any kind of plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure because I’ve seen those women with their stretched-looking smiles after face lifts. I knew a few people who have had botox and I thought they were nuts. This book is clear and understandable and separates fact from fiction with no nonsense. Starting today I’m saving my pennies!
