TikTok Users Tape Faces To Remove Wrinkles

The Daily Mail says a new TikTok trend involves people placing tape over their wrinkles to straighten them out. The so-called “hack” claims people will look younger if they leave the tape on while they sleep. Doctors and experts say there is no scientific basis for the hack because wrinkles will always return.

ABC News medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton says, “It’s possible that when you remove the tape, those wrinkles can re-form in minutes to hours. So, it’s going to be a very transient effect. Taping your face at night for several hours is very unlikely to do anything significant for deeper wrinkles.”
