Why Does Our Décolletage Wrinkle Up?

 

Wrinkles schminkles! Did the skipping of sunscreen cost us a wrinkled décolletage and neck? Can Ultherapy help in stimulating collagen for our chest area?

You are only as young as you tell yourself, but sometimes the lines on your hands, neck, and chest area don’t lie. Those wrinkles reveal your lifestyle, sunscreen habits, and your age range. The truth hurts and can rumple your confidence.

As much as we can slap on anti-aging creams, moisturisers, and sunscreens, sometimes these may not have the best desired effect. Not all creams are made for your skin. The density of your skin care products affect the rate of absorption, the ingredients used for your specific skin type, and even the amount of application matter.

Sunscreen, or the lack of

Sure, our neck and décolletage are shielded from the sun by our heads and headwear, and they don’t show the exact signs of aging as compared to our face. But that is no excuse to skip sunscreen over these areas. Also, because of gravity and physiology, our neck sags the fastest compared to other parts of our face.

Clothes

We don’t usually notice the wrinkles on our décolletage, as compared to discolouration. But ignore them, and the wrinkles will deepen and worsen. Plus the v-neck blouse or those cleavage baring clothes expose the neck and chest to the sun. As such, these two areas are extremely vulnerable to photoaging.

Bras

Not forgetting the fact that the area is also often “abused”. If you wear push-up bras every single day, your cleavage will leave a permanent v on your chest. That is why wearing the right bra is of utmost important! The deep crease that is left behind after decades of push-up bras is the sign of your breasts taking revenge!

The way you sleep

Cleavage crease lingers longer and deeper. Irene Komsky recognised this problem and invented the Intimia Pillow, which seeks to prevent décolletage wrinkles. It is said that even sleeping on your side can cause vertical creases on your chest, especially for the well-endowed.

Ultherapy décolletage treatment is the solution

Ultherapy is the only US FDA-approved, non-invasive, and no-downtime skin tightening treatment. Using focused ultrasound technology, it works from the inside-out and uses the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin.

The Ultherapy décolletage treatment utilises Ulthera’s signature imaging and micro-focused ultrasound therapy capabilities. This treatment, which takes 30-45 minutes, stimulates the natural formation of collagen and elastin in the skin’s foundation to gradually smoothen chest wrinkles. No downtime or post-treatment care is required.
