Text-Neck Lines and Wrinkles: A Most Modern Affliction

May 17, 2018

The mobile devices in our handbags and pockets have changed our lives in innumerable positive ways. You probably sleep with yours within arm’s reach, as 70 percent of people do. (That figure is 90 percent for Millennials.) But regardless of age, our indispensable mobile phones have also changed our looks – and not for the better.

Almost none of us look at our devices without bending our necks. Most of us instinctively put our heads down to see the latest incoming notification or text. That repetitive motion puts significant strain on our necks.

This so-called ‘text-neck’ invariably leads to movement-caused wrinkles. These lines are initially dynamic, meaning they move and can be addressed. If not dealt with, they turn into deep, static wrinkles – the aging equivalent of a bag for life. Static wrinkles are permanent.

Short of ditching your phone, what can you do about these youth-depleting neck wrinkles? Simply put, tackle them head-on. Putting this off will only make yours look worse.

In all of SISU’s clinics – currently in Dublin, Cork and Killarney – our highly-skilled aesthetic doctors have years of experience applying targeted use of Botox and dermal fillers to rejuvenate aging necks. While Botox prevents the muscle from moving in a way that causes wrinkles, dermal fillers like Juvéderm eliminate existing lines in the neck’s soft tissue. Bonus: The results are almost immediate.

You used to need serious surgery to get rid of these wrinkles. Modern advancements in aesthetic medicine, as practiced at SISU’s physician-only clinics, have reduced this treatment to a non-invasive, fast, virtually painless procedure. (You can even apply makeup over the injection site, should you want to, in a matter of 12 hours.) Even better, the results typically last nine months to one year. And you won’t have to figure out how to live without your phone!

If you’re curious about how SISU can significantly rejuvenate your appearance with neck wrinkle treatment, find out more by booking a free consultation with one of our doctors. Our highly-skilled aesthetic physicians will give you a personal assessment, tailoring any treatment to your unique anatomy and your desired results, explaining the treatment in full, and answering all of your questions. Click here to book your consultation appointment today. You have nothing to lose but that text-neck!
