Do facial exercises, micro-current, or electric stimulation help prevent the need for facelift surgery?

Some have argued that facial exercises or electric stimulation of the facial muscles can help tighten the face and reduce the sagging appearance common with aging. However, there isn’t scientific research that shows it being worthwhile for cosmetic improvement. In addition, most plastic surgeons and dermatologists have not seen long-term, predictable results from such nonsurgical treatments. Any cosmetic results, if present, tend to be very short term and subtle.

Facial exercises and electric stimulation are not a replacement for a surgical facelift or neck lift. Patients with significant neck fat or sagging skin will typically require facelift surgery.
