Facial Yoga Toning Program - A Pilot Study
The primary objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of a facial yoga exercise program on appearance and to measure patient satisfaction with facial yoga practice.
This is a single center prospective longitudinal pilot study of 27 subjects. The study will include 20 study subjects and 7 controls. Participants in this study will be healthy subjects 18 years and older with mild to moderate facial atrophy without a history of surgical or non-surgical treatment to the area. The study subjects will perform facial yoga and apply sunscreen (Neutrogena Helioplex SPF 55) daily. The controls will apply sunscreen alone daily for 8 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
A syndrome characterized by slowly progressive unilateral atrophy of facial subcutaneous fat, muscle tissue, skin, cartilage, and bone. The condition typically progresses over a period of 2-10 years and then stabilizes.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and salivary glands, and convey afferent information for taste from the anterior two-thirds of the tongue and for touch from the external ear.
Neuralgic syndromes and other conditions which feature chronic or recurrent FACIAL PAIN as the primary manifestation of disease. Disorders of the trigeminal and facial nerves are frequently associated with these conditions.
