Wrinkly, Sun Damaged Chest

With all the efforts spent on having our face and neck look as fresh as possible, it only makes sense to extend the look down our décolleté. Since peels can be unpredictable on the chest, we prefer to treat brown spots with the IPL, Fraxel or Alexandrite lasers, sometimes in combination. Crepey skin responds to the Fraxel laser, Endymed Intensif microneedling and Botox in combination with stimulatory fillers. Deeper wrinkles between the breasts can be helped with Ultherapy and Sculptra.

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the best ways to improve the appearance of the chest is the Fraxel laser. However, this part of the body may also benefit from a combination of fillers, Botox injections, or micro needling. How many methods are used is dependent on how much work needs to be done.

Yes! Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is one of the best ways to even out pigmentation in the chest skin. Other lasers, such as Fraxel, can also be effective for this purpose. Some people want chemical peels on the chest, but those aren’t usually as helpful for an area with such delicate skin.

Any dark spots found on the chest can be addressed with lasers. However, someone with melanoma will usually need minor surgery to remove the abnormal skin cells. This is done through a minimally-invasive procedure that involves shaving off tiny layers of tissue to best preserve healthy skin in the surrounding areas.

People with minor sun damage to the chest may benefit from prescription creams, such as retinol. If these are not effective, your dermatologist may recommend procedures to improve the appearance of the chest.
