Mewing, is it dangerous?

we see so many crazy social media techniques that we inevitably come to ask the question… Especially since the double chin can exist in a family from generation to generation. Morality assuming it’s still the best solution.

Asked by Madame Lefigaro, doctor Lisa Hanrad also warns users of the meowing technique:

“While the method is not inherently dangerous, there is still no scientific evidence of actual results. In addition, it can potentially aggravate or even cause pain or tension in the area of ​​the masticatory muscles. Especially in people already affected by teeth grinding. »

However, according to the scientist, she would also have beneficial effects and would allow “to improve our way of swallowing and create a slightly more defined jawline over time, as well as an overall improvement in posture“.

But let’s be careful: filters and light used by influencers on social media may give a false idea of ​​the result. For Lisa Hanrad, the first visible effects can be counted in months, even years:

“There are noticeable changes in the central part of the face. The chin and chin can be reshaped between six months and a year. Of course this varies from person to person. »

Patience and rigor are therefore necessary… However, you can always try face yoga. We are waiting for you on our forums to discuss it!
