Brief Answer:
Not at al

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

No.

The bones of the face and other parts of the body are almost ossified at the age of 33years. Not any sort of physical strain can cause changes in the shape or contour of the bones.

By no chance hair dryer heat alters the bone structure.

Please do ask if any doubts.

Regards.
