Wrinkling on the Decollete (Chest)
Treatment of the Wrinkles on the Chest Area in New York, NY
What Are Decolletage Lines?
A very fancy word to describe the neck and cleavage area is “décolleté.” Most women take great care of their hair, eyes, nose and rest of the face but often forget the décolleté area. Women these days often wear garments, which expose the neck and décolleté area, and consequently, the skin gets a higher exposure to the sun and all the other pollutants in the environment.
Most women never think about the neck area as being traumatized until it is too late. If the skin in the décolleté area is neglected by the third decade of life, one may start to see aging spots and fine lines develop. Very soon this will be followed by wrinkles and sagging of the skin around the neck area. The unfortunate fact is that once the wrinkles have developed in the décolleté area, many women give up wearing some of the revealing clothes they love.
Other features of skin imperfections in the décolleté area that accompany wrinkles include brown spots, thin skin, obvious cleavage crease and uneven skin discoloration. The reason for this is that the skin in the neck area is very sensitive and fragile; it has fewer oil glands and is far more sensitive to the sun and smoke than skin in other parts of the face.
Because it has an impact on one’s appearance and also affects the ability to wear certain garments, many women seek cosmetic help. However, before seeking any treatment in New York City, it is vital that one adopts preventive measures. The first thing to do is use ample sun protection when going outdoors. A sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 must be applied liberally over the neck area. This will help prevent progression of wrinkles into thick skin folds.
One should also use proper skin hygiene and use gentle face rubs to even out the skin tone. Today there are many types of budget friendly serums and creams available that can help moisturize and hydrate the neck skin. Finally, one must stop smoking because this is one factor that triggers worsening of wrinkles and makes most treatments resistant.

Once you have started the preventive steps and still are bothered by the appearance of the décolleté area, the next thing is to see a Skincare Specialist at Rejuve NYC.

This prescription drug can soften the lines, reduce wrinkles and also even out the skin discoloration spots. Retinoids tend to work fast and produce excellent anti-aging benefits.
Chemical peels often work for fine lines but do not do much for obvious wrinkles and sagging skin. One may need multiple treatments with these peeling agents.
Another option to erase wrinkles in the neck area is the use of dermal fillers like Juvederm or Restylane. These fillers will immediately erase the wrinkles and lines. The cost varies from $400-$600, and the benefits can last 4-9 months.
A fourth option is the use of a laser. Over the years, many types of Laser treatments have been developed to treat wrinkles. When used appropriately, lasers can cause fading of aging spots, tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles and smoothen the skin. Laser treatment is done as an outpatient procedure and rarely takes more than 60 minutes. There is some downtime with laser which may vary from 2-7 days depending on the extent of treatment.
