Chest Rejuvenation? Sculptra is Here to Help

Our face isn’t the only skin we need to take close and careful care for as we spring into summer. Most of us are more cognizant about protecting our facial skin, but we neglect to take care of our necks, chest, and hands.

Over time, exposure to sun and environmental elements can cause telltale aging changes to the chest. UV exposure damages collagen in the second layer of our skin called the dermis. This loss of support results in skin textural changes and vertical wrinkles in the decollete area.

So what can be done to improve the appearance of this aged skin? Sculptra! Completed as a series of treatments, Sculptra injections to the chest promote new collagen growth, strengthening and thickening the soft tissue and skin of the chest area. This increased support and scaffolding lessens the appearance of skin irregularities and lines in the V-shaped area of the chest.

Watch the YouTube video below to see Dr. Palm demonstrate how Sculptra in placed along the decollete area for chest rejuvenation:

Other procedures can be combined with Sculptra treatment for total chest rejuvenation. Laser and light procedures can improve the appearance of the skin by eliminating color changes and further improving skin texture. IPL can eliminate brown spots and broken blood vessels. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) can treat photodamage and precancerous spots called “actinic keratoses.” The eCO2 fractionated laser skin resurfacing procedure can smooth and tighten skin. Ultherapy can be used in the chest area to tighten and lift loose skin.
