Leaders of the skin fitness revolution, FaceGym have rapidly become the go-to brand for a toned and tighter-looking complexion, with many famous faces seen attending their studios in London, LA, New York and Manchester for a workout like no other.

Designed to work the 40 muscles in the face the same way we'd work any other muscle in the gym, their high-performance skincare and sculpting tools, powered by triple wave technology, kickstart the skin's metabolism and contract the muscles to create an instantly uplifted appearance.

With all of the FaceGym range suitable for at home use, we teamed up with the professionals from the brand to put together the step-by-step workout using the bestselling FaceGym Pro device.

“The FaceGym Pro has been part of our in-studio face workouts for years, it’s a powerful little package and so many of our community and celebrities all over the world have fallen for its skin-transforming powers. It’s one of my go-to tools, I carry it with me everywhere I go. It’s like having a personal trainer in my handbag. I use it whenever I have ten minutes free between meetings or in a taxi. It gives an instant lift and helps me keep my face toned and sculpted longer-term.” Inge Theron, FaceGym Founder

How does the FaceGym Pro work?

Just like the rest of the body as we age, the small muscle fibres in the face begin to lose elasticity. The heavyweight of facial workouts, "the FaceGym Pro visibly lifts, sculpts, and tightens the face muscles using patented Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology to activate and elevate your facial muscles giving you the appearance of a firmer, more youthful-looking face in as little as 10 minutes" says Georgina Hardiman, content writer at FaceGym. The diamond faceted probes on the device enables deep stimulation to cover a larger surface area and creates a gentle, subtle stimulation that’s greater in strength than a typical round smooth head.

Who is the FaceGym Pro suitable for?

Clinically tested and suitable for all skin types, the FaceGym Pro can be used by both those concerned about the formation of wrinkles and mature skin types to help create a more toned complexion. The device, however, is not suitable for pregnant women or those with epilepsy.

Which areas of the face can the FaceGym Pro be used on?

The FaceGym Pro can be used all over the face, including on the jawline, forehead, cheeks, brows and under eyes.

How often should the Pro be used?

"The FaceGym Pro can be used daily or as required to maintain results" says Georgina. "We would recommend 2-3 times per week to begin with to familiarise yourself and your skin with EMS and work up to daily".

How to use the FaceGym Pro

Step 1:

Ensuring the skin is cleansed and completely dry, apply 4-5 pipettes of the FaceGym Collagen Infusion Serum to half of the face. Designed specifically to be used with the FaceGym Pro, the water-based serum acts as a conductor to allow the electrical stimulation to reach the muscles. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, the collagen-rich formula also helps to hydrate and plump the skin.

Step 2:

Press and hold down the power button on the FaceGym Pro until all of the lights illuminate. Next, select your strength setting, "for beginners we recommend starting on a low to medium strength and over time as the muscles strengthen you can work up to higher settings". The workout moves through low, medium and high settings with ten intensity levels.

Step 3:

Place the tool on the area of the face you wish to work out and move in upwards and outwards motions using light to medium pressure for 20-30 seconds. Move the tool around to each area of the face you want to workout including the cheekbones, jawline, eye area and forehead.

Step 4:

Repeat all of the above steps on the other side of your face, ensuring to apply the Collagen Infusion Serum to the area you're working to conduct the waves from the FaceGym Pro.

Step 5:

Once you have worked out both sides of the face, cleanse, tone and moisturise the skin with your favourite products to keep it clean and supported, enhancing your all over glow.

How do you clean and store the FaceGym Pro?

After each use, wipe your FaceGym Pro clean with a damp cloth. "You can also thoroughly clean using an alcohol spray to disinfect it" says Georgina. "For storage, either keep in the original packaging box or if leaving out on a dressing table, please make sure the device is stood upright, the heads should not be left face down on a side" she adds.
