How to Rejuvenate Your Décolleté

If you frequently wear low-cut blouses or swimsuits during the hot summer, you might start noticing the skin at the top part of your chest is showing signs of aging.

This part of your body is called the décolleté, and it is thinner and with fewer oil glands than the rest of your body. That means your décolleté needs extra care and attention, especially if you like wearing clothes that show it off.

Your décolleté is prone to sun damage, and can be stubborn to treat. Be sure to always apply sunscreen to this area to keep it safe from UV rays and well-moisturized.

Skin resurfacing treatments — such as TCA peels, dermaneedling, or Exilis Ultra — could help even out the texture and tone, as well as reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around your décolleté. 

TCA Peels

TCA peels are chemical peels that use trichloroacetic acid to stimulate new cell growth, and work really well in this area to reduce the appearance of fine lines and thin skin.

The down side to TCA peels is that treated skin frequently requires seven to eight days for re-epithelialization. Hence, the downtime post-procedure is increased.

Dermaneedling

Dermaneedling (also known as microneedling) works well in this area with zero downtime post-procedure. This procedure uses tiny needles to pin-prick the skin to resurface the area, and only requires about 30 to 45 minutes in the office.

Another advantage to dermaneedling is that the ski is recovered for the most part within 24 to 36 hours. To achieve your desired results, you may need two to three sessions.

Exilis Ultra

Looking for another treatment? You can opt for the new Exilis Ultra treatment on your décolleté. Exilis uses radiofrequency technology that encourages new collagen growth to tone and improve skin texture. It works amazing to thicken the skin and is non-invasive, so you can add it to the above treatments.
