Smartphones ‘could be causing more demand for Botox’


Smartphones may cause wrinkles and a need for Botox.People who buy a smartphone may find themselves wanting Botox not too long after they start using the device.

This is the suggestion of cosmetic surgeon Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh, who told the London Evening Standard that lots of young professionals are now developing wrinkles because they have to focus intently on a small screen.

He said the lines tend to develop between the eyebrows most often, as people scrunch up their faces to concentrate.

"It can be seen on anyone who has and regularly checks a BlackBerry or iPhone, Dr Sebagh commented.

However, he added that this problem "is easily rectified with the light use of Botox by an experienced doctor".

Back in September 2010, cosmetic surgery specialist Dr Michael Prager told the Telegraph many office workers may be in need of Botox in years to come because of 'computer face', which is characterised by saggy jowls, a second neck and deep wrinkles from staring at a monitor all day.

Heating systems ‘could cause a need for Botox’


Central heating could lead to a surge in demand for Botox.Heating systems that dry out the air could cause wrinkles and generate a need for Botox, one healthy living products provider has said. states that many people experience air that is drier than that in the Sahara Desert at this time of year, when they have their central heating on full-blast to combat the cold.

"Continually dehydrating your skin by subjecting it to dry indoor air contributes to wrinkles and premature ageing," the company warned.

It recommended investing in a better heating system to ensure the humidity never drops below 50 per cent in order to avoid flyaway hair and a dry complexion.

In September 2010, cosmetic surgery specialist Dr Michael Prager told the Telegraph that people who use a computer regularly could be at risk of developing saggy jowls and deep wrinkles from frowning and constantly looking down without realising.

Young professionals in particular may be particularly in need of Botox as a result in the coming years.

Could Alexa Chung be a future Botox candidate?


Could Alexa Chung's comments mean she might try Botox in future? Alexa Chung could be a future candidate for Botox after telling a magazine she is paranoid about wrinkles.

The TV presenter said in an interview with Stylist that she does not have a beauty regime and tends to go to bed in her makeup without brushing her hair.

However, she said ageing is a concern, even at 26 years old.

"Recently I've been getting paranoid about wrinkles. I haven't actually found any yet but every time I look in the mirror I search my forehead for the first signs," Chung commented.

This follows recent comments to the Telegraph by cosmetic surgery specialist Dr Michael Prager, who said young professionals could be more at risk of wrinkles because they spend long periods of time frowning at computers.

Perhaps Chung and other people around the same age could therefore be more encouraged to have Botox in order to beat fine lines which make them appear older.

Arlene Philips stays young with Botox


Arlene Philips is one of the many celebrities to have used BotoxCelebrity choreographer Arlene Philips has revealed she has tried Botox in an attempt to keep the forces of ageing at bay.

The former Strictly Come Dancing judge told New magazine that she has previously used the anti-wrinkle treatment and is keen to try the latest cosmetic procedure known as ‘baby Botox‘.

Philips was controversially dropped from the expert panel on Strictly last year after the BBC show’s producers decided to replace her with a younger judge, Alesha Dixon.

“A lot of my friends are now having baby Botox,” the 67-year-old star told the publication.

“Apparently it doesn’t hurt, so as soon as I get some time, baby Botox here I come.”

Baby Botox uses the same ingredients as the normal treatment, but in smaller quantities.

Cosmetic surgery specialist Dr Michael Prager recently told the Daily Telegraph that women who spend a lot of time looking at a computer screen may require Botox treatment in the future.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800087191-ADNFCR

Botox could help with ‘computer face’


Could staring at a computer cause you to need Botox?A cosmetic surgery specialist has said many women may be in need of Botox in years to come because they spend their lives looking at a computer.

Dr Michael Prager told the Telegraph that because young professionals rack up a lot of screen time, they are at risk of developing saggy jowls, a second neck from constantly looking down and deep wrinkles from frowning without realising.

He called this ‘computer face’ and said it is now getting much more obvious among office workers.

“I think the problem is going to become much, much worse. In another ten years, they could be looking quite awful,” Dr Prager commented.

To avoid this, the expert recommended putting a mirror at the side of the computer to alert people to their facial expressions, as well as getting Botox to reduce the appearance of deep lines.

Last week, age management specialist Dr Darren McKeown told the Scottish Daily Record many women now treat Botox as no different than having a makeover.
