I am skeptical, for a couple of reasons.
1. Burning fat is an all-body process, and facial exercises will NOT burn face fat. Energy is delivered to the muscles via the bloodstream, NOT from being absorbed from surrounding fat stores.
2. The face muscles are very small, and won't burn a lot of calories, or get your heart rate up. For health and ftness, you want to be working the large muscles in your body, not the small ones.
However, one of the effects of regular exercise is that it increases the blood supply to the muscles being worked, which might (this is a bit beyond my knowledge) help keep the skin firmer. But realistically speaking, you would be working those muscles without any load, and unloaded muscles are unlikely to develop an increased blood supply. Unless you could come up with some kind of [insert bizarre mental image] system of face weights???
but equally they won't do any harm, except if face exercises come at the expense of time spent NOT working the larger muscles in the body.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
