What Causes Chest, Cleavage or Decollete Wrinkles?
Before we get to chest wrinkles treatment, let’s talk about why we get crepey wrinkles on the neck and chest in the first place. Of course, wrinkles on any part of the body are a natural part of the aging process. However, the skin on the neck, shoulders and upper chest has three characteristics that make it particularly susceptible to noticeable signs of aging. The decollete is sensitive, thin and delicate. What this means is that the skin on the decollete has fewer, reparative oil glands, less elastin and is more prone to sun damage. This combo is a recipe for dry, crepey and sagging skin on the neck and chest.
The Decollete and Our Skincare Regimen
To put it bluntly, the decollete is often an overlooked body part. We typically pay more attention to protecting and nourishing other parts of our body, like arms and legs, than the decolletage. A lack of targeted attention in our daily skincare regime, along with harsh soaps, can accelerate aging of the area of the chest, neck and shoulders.
What’s the Best Treatment for an Aging Decollete?
Lifestyle Changes for Decollete Wrinkles
Simple changes can stop the progression of wrinkles on the decollete.
- Stop side-sleeping: Chest wrinkles can be made worse by sleeping on the side. Side-sleepers tend to press their faces and chest into the bed and pillows. While one night won’t do any harm, a lifetime of sleeping on the side can cause neck and chest creases and wrinkles to deepen. So try to sleep on your back instead.
- Avoid Tech Neck: Looking down while texting or working on a computer can lead to horizontal bands on the neck and chest (aka necklace lines). So chin up!
- Try Yoga: You can lengthen and strengthen the spine area to provide more support for the chest. As a result, you will appear taller and straighter.
Retinoids for Decolletage Wrinkles
Typically, skin cells regenerate every 27 days. A topical skin product with a Retinoid will speed up this process to reveal newer, smoother skin. Further, Retinoids combat free radicals, which promote healthy collagen and elastin production. After about two months, a Retinoid should result in decolletage skin repair, including a reduction in wrinkles.
Ultherapy for Wrinkles on the Chest / Decolletage
Lifestyle changes and Retinoids might not be enough for stubborn wrinkles on the chest. Ultherapy may be the answer. By sending ultrasound waves deep under the skin, Ultherapy gives collagen production a boost and reconditions the skin. The result is a smoother decollete.
Injectables for Decolletage Wrinkles
Dermal Fillers for chest wrinkles include Hyaluronic fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane. These cosmetic fillers work to replenish volume loss in the skin, which will reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines on the decollete.
Chemical Facial Peel for Decollete Wrinkles
A chemical peel is used to diminish wrinkles on the chest by exfoliating the top layer of older skin and revealing the fresh, smooth skin beneath.
