Laptops and Tablets and Smart Phones, OH MY!

Caught up in today's constant information stream and social networking via mobile device usage, where we are constantly looking down at our handheld screens...

a new sign of aging is emerging.

It's called TECH-NECK.

This term refers to specific creases just above the collar bone and in the mid neck area caused by repeatedly bending the neck to look at the screen of portable devices.

How often do you stare down at your little screen? You're probably even reading this Blog on your phone.

Clinicians are getting more and more inquiries every day about concerns of neck lines and wrinkles and sagging jowls.  And, the demographic is getting younger and younger.

Dermatologists are blaming smartphones and tablets for causing this new TECH-NECK phenomenon.

The problem of neck wrinkles and laxity in the jawline and jowls use to begin around late middle-age.  However, in the last decade, studies show that TECH-NECK is occurring in people from 18-39 years old who own an average of three devices.

Well, toss those turtlenecks and shed the scarves.
