Hi Jodi, thank you for the question.

To be honest I am not sure, however, I have a few patients who swear by certain muscle stimulating machines. It is something that would need to be done daily and typically the effect is to lift the area of concern rather than improving or preventing wrinkles. One must remember that the facial expressions formed by muscle movement are the primary reason after sun damage for the formation of wrinkles.
