facial exercise
Apr 6, 2003

Hi Dr. Moyle

I was wondering if facial exercise such as manual techniques or even electric masks can help increase facial muscle tissue (not fat - but actual tissue) enough to really make a difference in appearance. This goes for HIV associated lipoatrophy as well as general facial wasting due to infectious disease, cancer, etc.

Response from Dr. Moyle

I've not heard of any research into this. It shouldn't do you any harm so there is no problem giving it a go. If you do see benefits please let us know!

Best Wishes

Graeme Moyle
