'Blackberry Botox' for women staring too much at their smartphones!
Smartphone-related wrinkles are the latest condition that doctors attribute to overuse of technology.
Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh says that peering at a small screen causes your face to scrunch up, creating an area of tension around and between the brows, reports the Daily Mail.
The London-based anti-ageing expert said the phenomenon "can be seen on anyone who has and regularly checks a BlackBerry or iPhone."
Sebagh, who treats celebrity clients including Cindy Crawford, reckons that excessive scrunching of the face is to blame for a rise in desperate women seeking "BlackBerry Botox".
Sebagh explained to the Evening Standard, "This phenomenon is not unusual with women living in London and the South-East. It can be seen on anyone who has and regularly checks a BlackBerry or iPhone."
London beauty therapist Nichola Joss, who has also apparently noticed the phenomenon among her customers, said, "I've noticed a huge difference over the past 18 months in my clients' faces - it's the constant peering intently down at that mini screen. It's the same with an iPhone."
The solution, however, is a daily DIY face massage, rather than Botox, Joss said. (ANI)
