The program we have devised is tried and tested, and is safe and guaranteed. Can Oralift be used in different ways?
The crucial element is to test the state of your facial muscles to determine your starting point.
Even if you are sure you are in Group 1, we would recommend that you follow the program for two weeks before trying any variations, to make sure your muscles are very adaptable.
Can tense muscle become relaxed and relaxed muscles become tense? The answer is yes. You can use relaxation techniques or meditation to relax muscles and relaxed muscles can become tense if you are stressed or start parafunctioning. If this happens during your Oralift journey in years to come, you must change your wear program. The best way to judge this is by monitoring and taking regular photographs.
Variation 1: 2 months wear and 4 months rest: wearing the 3mm for one month everyday for 30mins and then introducing the 5mm gradually for the 2nd month while still wearing the Oralift for a maximum amount of 30mins everyday, then do the 4 months rest period.
Variation 2: Wear the device on two set days each week rather than every third day.
Variation 3 : Wear the device once a day up to the maximum of 60 minutes
Other program variations:
Obviously there could be an infinite amount of program variations and we cannot guarantee these. It’s important to make sure you do not get signs of overuse and you are monitoring your results regularly.
Oralift is based on the principle of adaptation, which is not the same as but similar to exercise. In exercise programs, it is recommended not to overwork the same muscles. With Oralift, we want to ensure there is never any pain from overworked muscles, and we know that the program with two days rest in between gets results! The important point to remember is that you do not get signs of overuse and you do not let Oralift become a routine. That is why the 4 months rest periods are important.
Users get worried that they will loose the benefits in the 4 month rest period. This is not the case, the micro trauma theory means that even in the rest period the healing and the improvements carry on. Usually the face keeps on improving.
