Video Calls Create Rise in Cosmetic Procedures, So Called ‘Zoom Dysmorphia’


A new research study revealed all those hours in front of video calls (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, etc) is leading people to get cosmetic procedures despite the fact we are in the middle of a pandemic.

A team of dermatologists have coined the phrase, Zoom Dysmorphia.

The doctors want to remind people the images people see of themselves are often distorted and not a true reflection of what they really look like.

50% of doctors surveyed saw a rise in cosmetic consultations during the pandemic. 86% of those doctors in the survey said their patients referenced video conferencing as the reason for their cosmetic concern.
