The chest skin, or decollete (sometimes referred to as decolletage) when referring to women’s chest skin, is prone to sun damage, wrinkles, or stretch marks. Women (and men) with these conditions may feel self-conscious and avoid wearing lower necklines or revealing the area. Surgical scars from breast surgery or chest surgery may increase their discomfort. Our Vancouver, BC, medical, laser and skin clinic provides several non-surgical treatments that tighten the skin, remove stretch marks, diminish chest sun damage, and even improve scarring.
Does your chest skin show the signs of sun damage? Is it mottled with dark age spots or white spots (known as pigment dropout)? The chest is sometimes neglected in our skin care routine; particular when it comes to protecting it from the sun. Treatments that reduce age spots include: Fraxel ® laser, intense pulsed light (IPL), chemical peels, and skin lightening products such as Jan Marini’s Age Intervention ® Enlighten Plus and SkinCeutical’s Pigment Regulator.
