There’s a new phenomenon emerging in the ever changing and evolving world of technology, but it’s not centered around the latest and greatest gadget. Instead, it’s a side-effect stemming from the increasingly widespread use of mobile phones, laptops, tablets, and other similar devices. Doctors and dermatologists are calling the condition “tech neck.” They attribute the constant action of looking down at cell phone and computer screens for causing sagging skin and wrinkles in younger generations of users. Double chins are no longer being associated with just aging and being overweight. Now even healthy, young adults are starting to develop unsightly sagging skin around their neck areas.
Tech neck refers to a specific crease located slightly above the collar bone which is caused by repeated bending motions of the neck when looking down at the screen of a device. These repetitive motions are causing younger people to experience wrinkles, sagging jowls and the appearance of double chins at increasingly younger ages. What was once a late middle-age occurrence is now being seen in people as young as 18, and those who are most affected by tech neck are persons aged 18-39. On average they own three devices, which are the primary causes of the skin problem.
