‘Tech neck’ is a line around the neck and chin: Loose skin.

This condition is basically a wrinkle, like a line around the neck and chin, known to be created by constantly looking down at handheld devices and computers every day.

Most of us feel good with the latest gadget in hand, but we are not aware that these gadgets are apparently giving us ‘Tech Neck’.

A new breed of wrinkles is being forced to appear with the Brits chatting away on the clever smart phone.
With this change in day to day life becoming more and busier, the laughter lines, furrowed brow and crows’ feet are no more the only expressions to take place on the face.

This ‘tech neck’ is basically a line around the neck and chin caused by looking down at handheld gadgets like various tablets, phones and computers every day.

The company CACI identified this bizarre latest face furrow after a surge of neck-related enquiries for non-surgical and knife-free face-lifts.

In Last year’s Closer magazine, women panelist Carol McGiffin revealed that the CACI procedure was responsible for her new youthful look.

These handheld devices are known to strengthen* the neck muscles and firm the jawline. Due to this “Tech Neck” may only cause worry wrinkles for a short period of time.

Managing Director of CACI international, Dean Nathanson says that they noticed a surge in enquiries for their product, mostly to combat lines around the neck area.

He then adds ‘We’ve identified a correlation between the rises of technology in recent years with the growth of the tech neck.’

He then states ‘So, whilst there is little chance of the nation giving up technology. So that we can at least help people reduce* wrinkles and keep their chin up! Proudly’
