4 Ways to Fight “Zoom Face”

We get it: you’ve been staring at your computer or phone screen for more than a year for video work calls, virtual events, and visits with friends and family. Admittedly, this has led to increased opportunity for all of us to nit-pick our features. Things like sagging neck, baggy eyes, and wrinkles seem magnified, so it’s no surprise that many individuals pretend the video camera on our devices is broken.

“Zoom Face” is a growing term across the industry, and it seems that everyone is experiencing it. Given all the time we spend in virtual meetings and at home, people are spending more time looking at themselves in the mirror, creating more opportunities to assess how to improve one’s appearance.

While we always want to look better, it’s important to decide to move forward with facial procedures that make you feel like a better version of yourself. Check out our favorite options:

  • Botox and Fillers

Botox and other soft-tissue fillers are used to elevate and fill deep folds, smooth and soften wrinkles, and fill shallow contours, overall improving the appearance of imperfections. The result? Your Zoom-face flaws are minimized. And if you do see the occasional bruise due to an injectable, make up, wearing sunglasses, or a mask are three easy ways to cover it up.

Using fillers is also a more conservative approach to improvement before moving into surgery. After all, you can always add more filler, but surgical procedures are more permanent.

  • Eyelid Surgery

Given that many areas of the country are still wearing masks, there’s a huge emphasis on the eyes – and of course we see your eyes on a virtual call. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, lifts and rejuvenates the aging eye tissue, removes sagging tissue, and creates a more youthful look. In short, it’s a procedure that has people wondering why you look so rested and radiant. The overall procedure is straightforward and produces incredible results without complex recovery.

  • Brow Lift

The past year has left many of us stressed and anxious, but none of us want a continually furrowed-looking brow – especially in front of colleagues on a virtual call. A wrinkled forehead creates a fretful expression, but there are several surgical and non-surgical ways to rejuvenate the forehead and bring the eyebrows back into their proper position without a “surprised” look.

Dr. Burke Robinson is experienced in two brow lift techniques – the endoscopic brow lift and the mid-forehead lift. Both types of procedures produce excellent results, and Dr. Robinson will assess your needs and determine which procedure is right for you at your initial consultation.
