Using smartphones can give you wrinkles as looking down at handheld devices and computers for countless hours develops a line around the neck and chin, experts have warned.
This terrifying new scourge has been dubbed “tech neck” and could affect anyone who owns a modern gadget.
However the effect may last only for a short period of time, ‘Mirror’ reported.
The “tech neck” is a line around the neck and chin which is caused by looking down at handheld devices and computers every day.
The bizarre latest face furrow was identified after a surge of neck-related enquiries for non-surgical, knife-free face-lifts by CACI international, a firm that specialises in “non-surgical beauty solutions”.

“We’ve identified a correlation between the rise of technology in recent years and the growth of the ‘tech neck’,” said Nathanson.
