do facial exercises cause wrinkles?

Not usually: Excess face animation can strengthen muscles and can lead to deeper lines where muscles contract.

Yes and no: Routine facial movement is more likely the cause of any wrinkles you may have, but if you are purposefully making, or accentuating wrinkles, then of course exercise may make them worse!

Contribute: Like an accordion, the more times you move the skin the greater the fracture of elastic tissues and potential for lines and wrinkles. Having a pleasant demeanor that lifts with smiling vs frowning will assist in a more pleasant face. But in general facial exercise may feel good but will not cause deep wrinkles. So, smile it looks much better. www.artoplasticsurgey.com.

Interesting question: Yes they probably will. That is why we use Botox to weaken muscles and soften wrinkles. However ozone feel that facial muscle exercises will build sufficient bulk to restore facial or neck volume and fullness. So......it has food and bad effects.

Yes: Don't do them for cosmetic purposes!

Do it!: Grow the beard! it may be appropriate to discuss this with your family and hear what they have to say. If it gives you a sense of well being to have facial hair, gives you confidence, takes away anxiety and generally help your overall sense of who you are, then go for it! think of the down side first. How will this affect me negatively. Employer? Girlfriend? Family? Think, then do!
