Technology and aging

Fixed wrinkles caused by squinting decently at smartphone screens lead to increased wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows.

Minimizing the damage

There are many ways in which you can minimize the additional damage that will occur with the use of a smartphone. One trick is to adjust the phone’s settings to make the font sizes more visible. Taking lots of breaks and switching to the computer for more complex tasks are also important ways to rest your facial muscle. If you are going to read long texts, you should prefer a device with a large enough screen size that you do not need to squint your eyes for this. Again, the high brightness of the screen, the reflection of ambient light from the screen can also be counted among other factors that reduce reading comfort and contribute to wrinkles around the eyes. If you regularly read electronic books and you still haven’t heard of it, “Kindle” may be the right choice for you.

The role of the plastic surgeon

The simplest option for the treatment of facial wrinkles caused by excessive and repetitive muscle activity of the muscles around the eyes is the application of botulinum toxin. Bot toxin will weaken the muscles in this area and slow down the changes due to muscle hyperactivity. In some cases, wrinkles may be seated at a level that will not benefit from botox treatment. In cases of concomitant skin excess, eyelid miscarriage and eyelid muscle relaxation, blepharoplasty surgery that muscle structurally corrects the eyelid may be beneficial. Blepharoplasty can also be combined with surface-regenerating, non-surgical treatments such as laser, peeling, dermabrasion to help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles caused by eye contraction.

By combining prevention and care correctly, you can minimize the signs of aging caused by smartphones and slow down the development of negative symptoms that technology use can create on your face.
