Wrinkles can develop on any part of the body. Appearance of wrinkles is usually observed on areas that are regularly exposed to the sun. The décolletage or the upper chest is usually the most neglected part of the body. Furthermore, the skin on the upper chest is thin and sensitive, making the décolletage especially susceptible to sun exposure and aging. Décolletage wrinkles can be distressing because it reveals your real age if not taken good care of.
Unlike wrinkles on your face, décolletage wrinkles can be difficult to treat. Pigmentation, sagging and wrinkles are some of the problems affecting the décolletage. Excessive sun exposure is usually the culprit. Sun exposure without applying sufficient sunscreen accelerates the breakdown of collagen and the deposition of pigmentation in the skin.
The décolletage is so susceptible to aging because like our faces, it is often exposed to the sun. Yet, unlike our faces, it does not get the pampering and care it needs. Start protecting your decolletage easy, so that you can ensure that it is supple and youthful.
If your décolletage has already suffered some damage, there are some medical aesthetic treatments you can consider to reverse signs of aging on your décolletage.
