( - Too many hours logged on your smartphone might do more than annoy your partner. Constantly looking down at your techy gadgets can actually age you. The "tech neck" phenomenon is real, and with our mobile generation, it's here to stay.

"The repetitive motion of looking down at your phone and other devices can cause collagen and elastin to break down and lead to deep wrinkles and sagging, says American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) President Dr. Edwin F. Williams. "The neck area is most prone to the effects of gravity and has few oil glands, so it needs moisturizing and sun protection."

Don't worry, you're not doomed to either disconnect or don scarves for life. A little maintenance can help stave off sagging. Try these tips to defy smartphone-induced sagging:

  1. Be conscious of your posture - Try to keep your head at an upright angle and look downward with eyes instead.
  2. Bring out the bigs guns - Visit a professional. There are lots of new options that can restore a smooth neck. Dr. Williams recommends radiofrequency or ultrasound procedures tighten slack skin, newly approved Kybella and Coolsculpting Mini to reduce excess fullness and BOTOX® and other injectables to help soften muscle bands.
  3. Lift skin with a luxe creamExuviance's Age Reverse Toning Neck Creamliterally lifts and smooths the years away - all in the privacy and comfort of home. With a powerful blend of patented ingredients, the innovative treatment softens creases from the inside out for a more toned, tighter look.
  4. Protect from future damage - Now that you're practicing proper alignment and preventative measures... maintain results with SimySkin Ultra Lift Neck Serum. It contains UVA/UBV filters to protect skin from environmental degradation while restoring radiance and reducing fine lines. With two phases (for ages 25-45 and 45+), it's easy to choose a serum that's tailor made for your neck's needs.
