Working at your computer for long hours may get the job done, but it may also be making you look a heck of a lot older. Plastic Surgeons have dubbed this syndrome, “Computer face.”
Dr. Prager told the Daily Mail, “If you are one of the unfortunate people who frown or squint while they are concentrating at the screen then, over time, you will inevitably end up with frown lines.”
“What is perhaps more surprising is the number of women with saggy jowls because they are sitting in one position for so long.”
What was most alarmingly noted is that people in their 20’s are spending an increasingly number of hours glued to a computer screen and thus sagging, lines and wrinkles related to the use of electronic devices is only going to increase.
So what is a working girl or guy to do? It was recommended to place a mirror by your computer and glance over to see if you furrow your brow, squint or grimace frequently when at the computer and take frequent screen breaks, or a little Botox may help prevent the movements that cause the wrinkles in the first place.
