If you’ve started to notice wrinkles forming on your chest that don’t yet seem to be visible to others, but they bother you, you’re not alone. As the body ages, wrinkles begin to appear in unexpected places, and the chest is one common example.
The decollete is highly susceptible to wrinkles because of the constant sun exposure it experiences. After years of tank tops, scoop necks, and days at the beach or pool, deep cleavage wrinkles tend to form, and they can become very noticeable to yourself and others around you.
Learn more about the best ways to treat chest wrinkles at any age and why Ultherapy is the ultimate solution for both superficial and deep necklines and wrinkles.
Why Chest Wrinkles Form
Wrinkles on any part of the body are a natural part of the aging process, and they can happen to anyone. However, the skin on the neck, shoulders and upper chest all share three main characteristics that make them particularly susceptible to visual signs of aging. The decollete is made of thin, delicate skin. Additionally, the skin on the decollete is more prone to sun exposure, and damage has less elastin and has fewer reparative oil glands. These factors create the perfect storm for dry, sagging, sun-damaged skin on the neck and chest, and wrinkles can form right before your eyes.
The chest is often a part of the body that is overlooked until it’s too late. Other parts of the body are more likely to be nourished, such as the legs and arms. Little things like not applying sunscreen daily to the decolletage can accelerate the area’s aging and cause your skin to age prematurely.
Benefits of Ultherapy For The Decolletage
Ultherapy uses safe ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally without the need for invasive surgery or downtime. Ultherapy works by bypassing superficial skin layers to deliver a targeted amount of ultrasound energy at the correct depth and temperature to produce the desired results. It is the only cosmetic procedure of its kind to use ultrasound imaging, enabling practitioners to see the exact layers of tissue being targeted – ensuring the ultrasound energy is deposited precisely to where it will be most effective. This energy triggers a natural response underneath the skin, stimulating the body to naturally produce collagen, strengthening weak collagen, and producing fresh, new collagen.
Ultherapy Vs. Other Skin Tightening Treatments
At Radiance Skincare & Laser Medspa, we offer various treatments that will help improve chest wrinkles. Non-invasive measures can help improve chest wrinkles and yield gradual results as the body’s collagen production increases. Some recommended treatments include:
For deep, stubborn wrinkles, lifestyle changes and retinoids may not be enough. Ultherapy offers gentle skin tightening through the power of ultrasound. Lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, on the eyebrows, and the stomach. It can also improve the lines and wrinkles on the decollete through a series of nonsurgical treatments.
If you have mild to moderate skin laxity, you are likely an excellent Ultherapy candidate. Ultherapy can improve a lowered brow and sagging eyelids, loose skin on the neck, sagging skin under the chin, and lines and wrinkles on the chest.
If you’re looking for an affordable way to improve superficial damage, a series of chemical peels will improve pigmentation, fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture, and more. Results will be subtle but still noticeable.
Laser skin resurfacing can improve superficial skin damage to smooth skin overall. While this won’t have the same results as Ultherapy, it can be helpful for fine lines on the chest.
Subtle, Noticeable Results
After an Ultherapy treatment, clients may see some initial effect, but the ultimate results take place over 2-3 months, as the body naturally regenerates collagen. Most clients will enjoy fresh, young collagen for at least a year after their treatment. Even though Ultherapy produces new collagen on the inside, the body’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside.
