Using Computers All Day May Age You Prematurely

Will Using a Computer Give You Saggy "Screen Face"?

I certainly hope not, but at least one dermatologist seems to believe that computer usage is responsible for premature aging in office workers.

Dr. Michael Prager said, "If you spend most of the time looking down [at your screen], then the neck muscles shorten and go saggy, eventually giving you a second neck." And since women in their 20s have grown up using computers so frequently, he added that "in another 10 years, they could be looking quite awful."

Prager didn't cite any studies to back up his assertions, but recommends using Botox to keep yourself looking fresh. Using scare tactics to sell women on procedures might not be the best approach, but what do you think about all this? Is this piece helpful, if misguided, or is it just an attempt to make women even more self-conscious?
