Shh! Anti-agers only, but you should know: how can I get my cheekbones and jawline back?
- An anonymous reader asked for advice on adding definition to their jawline

- She said the device gives small electrical pulses at home to tighten the skin
Ask: I feel like my face loses definition with age (I’m 56). How do I get back my cheekbones and jawline?
Since none of us can hit the road right now, I would recommend the NuFace Mini Facial Toner (£ 133, currentbody.com). This home appliance uses “micro-current stimulation” to tighten the face and delivers what cosmetic practitioner CACI calls a “non-surgical facelift.”
Small electrical pulses, barely noticeable, stimulate blood flow in the muscles, both relaxing and tonic, to rebuild the jetty in the face and tighten the skin. I couldn’t see the point of microcurrents until I started to “flatten” my own face, where facial fat and muscles atrophy with age.

Just move the device over your face (instructions tell you how), but it won’t hurt. You may feel a slight itchy tingling sensation. You have to use it consistently: five 15-minute sessions equate to one 60-minute CACI treatment in a salon (costs £ 80).
If your delivery is delayed, some facial yoga will help you rediscover your cheekbones.
Try this exercise by a facial for the stars Nichola Joss (nicholajoss.com), which targets all facial muscles. Start with your facial features relaxed, then say loudly and slowly A, E, I, O, U, pronouncing each vowel too much, tightening and stretching every fiber in your face.
Do it five times in a row, every day to tone the muscles and drain excess fluids.
