The year is 2020. As of mid-March, both your personal and work life mostly take place online. During the first few days of working from home, you quickly discovered Zoom’s “Touch Up My Appearance” feature, a filter the video conferencing service describes as “a softening effect to skin to minimize the visibility of imperfections.” The filter diffuses your stress breakout, but as your boss is discussing WFH logistics during a meeting, you can’t help but stare at your own neck and the deep-set smile lines that definitely weren’t as prominent yesterday. As the weeks go on, you swear you’ve developed crow’s feet in quarantine, too.
With the country slowly opening back up after months of being shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic, you can finally get filler and Botox to firm and tighten the areas of your face that age you on Zoom. That is, if you can get an appointment.
