Wrinkles on the décolleté can appear for various reasons, such as sun exposure, genetics or the influence of external agents.
The décolleté skin is more sensitive than other areas of the body. This is due to its thickness, as it is thinner. It also contains fewer sebaceous glands and hair follicles. It is also greatly affected by weight changes.
How to rejuvenate the décolleté
The décolleté is a more exposed area of the body than others, so if we do not take proper care of it, it can become irritated or damaged more easily. And because of its location it is in constant movement, tensing and untensing by the movement of the arms and the change of posture.
As the décolleté is in such a visible position, especially in summer, when wrinkles appear it can create a certain unpleasant feeling. It is a sign of aging and we do not like it.
Fortunately, we can care for, prevent and even diminish wrinkles on the décolleté through a daily care routine, at the same time as the face, and with aesthetic treatments.
Cleavage rejuvenating treatments
Not only wrinkles can be evidence of an aging décolleté, but also sun spots, stretch marks and sagging. For blemishes, the use of lasers is recommended, combined with some other technology such as transdermal electroporation. It is a very fast treatment that yields great results.
For the rest of the signs of aging of the décolleté, these are the most effective treatments.
By injecting hyaluronic acid into the décolleté, it acts as a dermal filler. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful organic element with a great capacity to retain water, so by injecting it we achieve, temporarily, the smoothing of wrinkles and skin folds.
The effect of hyaluronic acid is, in this case, twofold, since we also stimulate the production of collagen in the skin and thus enhance skin tightening and reduce the signs of aging in this area.
These treatments must be repeated from time to time, since hyaluronic acid is a substance present in the body that ends up being absorbed and the effect disappears.
With transdermal electroporation we are able to painlessly introduce active ingredients into the skin of the décolleté. These assets are introduced by means of electrical pulses.
It is a very fast treatment that does not require recovery and does not generate any type of injury. We can reduce wrinkles, improve the texture and firmness of the décolleté.
Radiofrequency is an effective technology for the rejuvenation of the décolleté. There are many radiofrequency equipment on the market, the best thing to do is to consult with specialists to choose the most suitable one.
In any case, the effect of radiofrequency is the same, heating in a controlled manner the deep layers of the skin. This heating boosts fibroblast production and the creation of collagen and elastin, which revitalizes the skin and improves its elasticity.
It is a treatment that lasts no more than 1 hour. Results will be visible in a few weeks and several sessions will be necessary.
The treatment of injected mesotherapy to rejuvenate the décolleté consists of the injection of active ingredients such as vitamins, amino acids, hyaluronic acid and others, in the area to be treated.
Injected mesotherapy acts on the surface of the skin, providing hydration and regenerating the epidermal tissues.
Dermapen stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by creating small lesions in the skin of the décolleté with a microneedle device.
The effect of Dermapen can be enhanced by combining it with other treatments such as radiofrequency and electroporation.
Why do wrinkles appear on the neckline?
The main reason for cleavage wrinkles is age. When our body starts to stop creating collagen and elastin, elements responsible for supporting the skin’s structure, it loses elasticity and firmness. This is how wrinkles appear, not only on the neckline, but they give it that aged look.
In addition to age, the sun’s rays can accelerate skin aging and enhance the appearance of wrinkles on the décolleté and neck. This is the dreaded photoaging. We must take into account that this is an area of our body that is not usually covered, especially in hot months, so its exposure is greater even if it is not our intention. This excessive exposure damages the skin in such a way that it can even modify our DNA.
Moisturizing the skin is key to keeping it firm. If we do not moisturize an area such as the décolleté, which is constantly exposed, it will wrinkle as part of the natural process.
Tobacco is totally counterproductive when it comes to skin care. It is an agent that can accelerate aging and cause the appearance of wrinkles on any part of the body, especially on the face, neck and décolleté.
And finally, the position we adopt while sleeping also influences the appearance of wrinkles on the décolleté. Sleeping with pressure on the chest, face down, may favor its appearance.
What is good for cleavage wrinkles?
The skin will begin to lose its properties after a certain age, so to avoid a faster degradation, it is advisable to prevent the appearance of wrinkles with physical exercise, using a care routine that includes daily sunscreen, moisturizing, avoiding smoking and adopting a proper sleeping posture.
When wrinkles are already evident, it is because the skin above the breast reflects a lack of tension,
Regardless of the area of the body where the skin is located, hydration is very good for the skin. For this you can use moisturizers containing antioxidants and vitamins.
Massages activate circulation, which is beneficial for stimulating collagen production. But keep in mind that this is a sensitive area, so the massages should be soft and drawing circles.
How to sleep to avoid chest wrinkles
Although it may seem like a made-up story, the position in which we sleep can facilitate the appearance of wrinkles in the décolleté.
Experts indicate that the positions that can cause wrinkles are on the side and face down. In the first position, we force the skin of the chest, which contracts. And face down, we force it by stretching it and rubbing it against the mattress.
Thus, sleeping on the back would be the solution because we avoid friction, compression and stretching. This solution may not be easy for everyone as some people are not comfortable sleeping on their backs. If this is your case, you can train your body by putting yourself in this position at first to get used to it.
There are some flatter pillows that reduce the pressure on the chest and could be useful to prevent the appearance of wrinkles for this reason, but it is not proven that this is the case, as well as special bras.
