Wrinkles upon the chest and décolletage are sometimes not considered as prominent a concern as more commonly talked about areas such as the face. However, a wrinkly chest can become a heavily debilitating concern for those that feel self-conscious of it.

Wrinkles on the chest usually present as vertical fine lines or creases running from the neck or collarbones, down towards the breasts. They can inflict low self-esteem and can also dictate what you wear, how you move and even how you act in particular settings, such as being on holiday.

A wrinkly chest is usually another product of the ageing process. The breakdown and loss of elastin, teamed with the slow production of collagen, results in a depletion of skin’s lift and structure which creates a lack of volume and suppleness that appears as visible lines or a ‘crepey’ texture. A wrinkly chest can also be the consequence of dramatic weight changes, pregnancy and even the effect of gravity whilst sleeping on your side. A powerful contributing factor to a wrinkly chest is typically over exposure to the sun’s harmful rays over a number of years which causes the ageing process in the area to accelerate.

Some topical products, as advised by your skincare expert, may help to reduce the appearance of these lines subtly, however there are treatments that have been specifically designed to address this area of concern with more transformative results. Profhilo is a wonderfully effective injectable skin-remodelling treatment which uses a dispersion of highly-concentrated hyaluronic acid to add volume within the skin for a smooth and restored structure that feels hydrated and youthful. Working progressively over time, Profhilo is minimally invasive, involves no downtime and lasts for around 6 months at a time.

Morpheus8 is a treatment that uses microneedling therapy and radio-frequency technology to restore and resurface the skin by stimulating its healing response and collagen regeneration. It can be used upon many areas of the body and makes for a highly effective technique in addressing a wrinkly chest.

Smooth PDO threads when expertly inserted into the skin, provide a superb structural support to the skin, plus they increase collagen production and therefore reduce the wrinkles in the area and with lasting results. It’s a highly effective treatment for the neck and decolletage that is popular amongst patients for its great results.
