Mobile Phones’ Excessive Use May Bring Early Signs Of Ageing

According to the latest report by Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), by the end of this month i.e. June 2016, the number of mobile internet users in the country is expected to reach 371 million (37.10 crores) and as much as 40 percent of the users is between the age group of 19-30. And now health experts have warned that excessive use of mobile phones, tablets, and other electronic gadgets may lead to early signs of ageing.
Excessive use leads to “smartphone face”
Mohan Thomas, a Cosmetic Surgeon alerts: Excessive use of electronic gadgets cause much negativity to the neck bone and the skin. “The overuse of smart phones causes shortening of the neck muscles”, he said. The damage is not limited to it but it also increases the gravitational pull on the skin. Ultimately, this leads to “smartphone face” due to sagging skin, double chin, marionette lines (vertical lines from lips to chin) and loose jowls (drooping jawline).
“Tech neck” leads to ageing signs
“Tech neck”, leads to sagging skin, dropping jowls, and creases above the clavicle, which overall, seriously affects facial looks of the person, the experts have warned. “Tech neck”, causes frown lines, undereye bags, and horizontal lines on the neck along with fat prominences.
Excessive use causes wrinkles
Vinod Vij, a Mumbai-based cosmetic surgeon says most people bend down for long hours while using handheld devices including smartphones, tablets or computers. This bending posture constantly for long hours can cause neck, back and shoulder pain, headache, numbness, tingling in the upper limb and pain in hands, arm, elbows, and wrists. Such people are more likely to get wrinkles.
