Special Issue Information
There are several methods currently used for correcting signs of facial aging (e.g., the injection of botulinum toxin or dermal fillers). However, there is a growing interest in improving and/or delaying facial aging through facial exercises aimed at strengthening, moving and manipulating facial muscles.
The cosmetic industry is flooded with options for facial exercise protocols (i.e., several devices and masks for facial exercise or several types of voluntary facial exercise and movements) to improve facial soft tissue, facial wrinkles and sagging. Nonetheless, different types of facial exercise may elicit different effects on specific facial soft tissue (e.g., skin, adipose tissue, and muscle). At present, there are a limited number of studies investigating this topic. Therefore, it is important to work towards determining which exercise protocol is the most effective for producing changes in orofacial muscle strength and morphology and improving facial wrinkles and sagging.
This Special Issue, “Exercise-Induced Facial Rejuvenation and Orofacial Muscle Strength and Function”, aims to publish new data on the effect of exercise on facial rejuvenation via original research articles and short communications, and to share current knowledge in this area by means of review articles.
