Been wearing those low cut blouses and bikinis during the hot summer? How about that crepey skin of the top part of your chest (decloitte)?
The skin of the decloitte receives a lot of sun damage, and can be stubborn to treat. Resurfacing procedures can help even the texture and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in this area. Two options include TCA peels and Dermaneedling. TCA peels works really well in this area to reduce the appearance of fine lines and thin skin. The down side to the TCA peel is that skin frequently requires 7-8 days for re-epithelialization. Hence, there is some down time associated.
Dermaneedling works great in this area with NO DOWN TIME. It requires about 30-45 minutes in the office. Another advantage to dermaneedling is that the skin is recovered for the most part in 24-36 hours. Dermaneedling may need 2-3 sessions.
Want to do even more….Try out the new Exilis Ultra in the decloitte. It works amazing to thicken the skin, and you can add this to the above treatments.
Also, ALWAYS REMEMBER TO WEAR SUNSCREEN to prevent future damage!
