Nearly everyone has spent more time looking at their faces on devices over the past 18 months and that video conferencing is beginning to take its toll. Advanced Dermatology recently surveyed 1,450 Americans who regularly participate in video calls, to ask them how it has affected their perception of themselves.
- 85% say that seeing themselves on video calls has made them more self-conscious about their appearance.
- 73% say they’re less happy with their appearance now than before the pandemic.
The Zoom Boom is a real phenomenon, and many people are making bigger investments in their appearance as a result of the pandemic. In fact, 61% say they are more interested in cosmetic procedures based on what they’ve seen on video calls.
