Things that are very “2020” continue to roll into 2021 including masks, fogged-up glasses, and virtual meetings.
Dermatologists say the latter is creating a “Zoom Boom” – an increased demand for cosmetic treatments. It stems from people staring at themselves on the computer screen.
“We have a wider demographic of people, old and young, Old and young, who are spending hours on end, in front of a computer, staring at themselves,” said Pooja Sodha, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and director of the Center for Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology at the George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates. “So, this is a big divergence from the mirrorless meetings that we have spent most of our lives doing."
After a year of poor lighting and unflattering angles, Dr. Sodha said it’s not a surprise people are critical of their appearance. It’s nothing new.
