Have you heard of Smart Phone Face?

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recently reported that chin implants were one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgery procedures in 2011, and many doctors speculate that our smartphones might be to blame. It turns out that staring down at our phones actually shortens the neck muscles and increases the gravitational pull on the jowl area. This results in saggy jowls, double chins and more noticeable marionette lines.
Add to this the squinting that goes with (the so called Smart Phone Squint) the small screen of a BlackBerry which strains the face, especially around the eyes and between the brows. This can actually cause premature wrinkling in those areas.

To prevent “Smartphone Face,” a couple of tips are to enlarge the text on the screen, dim the brightness, and try to spend a little more time away from your phone.

Smart Phone Face? Oh Dear!
