As we age, many of us develop wrinkles on our chest area. These wrinkles are typical, especially for those who don't use sunscreen to protect the skin from sun damage. The skin becomes thin and dry and loses collagen, as we get older. A neck lift can go a long way to improve the skin of the neck, but usually does not do much for the skin of the chest.
To correct this problem, there are different procedures that can help you get the décolletage that you desire. Co2 lasers are used for skin smoothing to reduce the appearance of these wrinkles. This laser penetrates to the dermis layer of the skin and stimulates production of collagen as the skin repairs itself.
Other laser treatments can correct broken capillaries, pigmentation on the skin, or fine lines. Plastic surgeons also choose to use an IPL or a photofacial for the chest skin. This treatment can be performed to improve the brown spots, sun damage, and red spots of the chest skin.
Some injectable treatments such as Sculptra may be used to stimulate collagen production of the neck and chest skin to improve the appearance of the wrinkles. Good skin care and sun protection can help to improve and maintain the results of the treatments.
