The development of “tech-neck”

Are you worried that the young people in your family are spending too much time staring at screens? Tell them they are at risk of “early onset tech-neck’.

Dermatologists say that constant neck bending to look at screens is leading to sagging skin, dropping jowls and a distinct crease above the clavical, a condition they have dubbed ‘tech-neck.’
Dr Christopher Rowland Payne, Consultant Dermatologist at The London Clinic, said: “The problem of wrinkles and sagging of the jowls and neck used to begin in late middle age but, in the last 10 years, because of ‘tech-neck’, it has become a problem for a generation of younger women.”
