…Whenever we talk with another person, the first thing we notice is the person’s facial expression. Facial expression helps us to know whether a person is angry, sad, happy or even bored with the conversation and wish we could change the topic. Even though it helps us to express our feelings, its long-term effect is wrinkling which is rather unfortunate. Creases and frown lines appear on the face over time due to the repeated action of smiling, laughing and frowning. They tend to grow in number as we age and they eventually become the sign of old age.

A usual side effect is temporary bruises, and slight headache might occur. Although such cases are rare, even if it arises; it will fade away within 48 hours.
