In what can be called a shocking revelation, many young women are developing premature wrinkles from staring 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”. “It’s easily rectified with the light use of Botox by an experienced doctor,” said an Evening Standard report quoting the expert, according to the Daily Mail.
