Because the skin on our neck and décolletage is three times thinner than the skin on our faces, it is more prone to early ageing. It also lacks the regenerative abilities needed to recover from harm. Since we approach 40, many women's décolletages become a serious cosmetic issue, as a wrinkled décolletage can disclose a woman's age just as quickly as her hands.
Consider crinkly chests and deep lines between the cleavage that occur as the skin ages and thins, as well as the dreaded age spots and UV damage.
Women in their 40s and 50s, collagen and elastin breakdown is accelerated, resulting in skin thinning, dryness, and other changes such as solar elastosis (a disorder in which the skin appears yellow and thickened as a result of sun damage), increased inflammation, cell damage (red and brown spots), ruddiness, thin and wrinkled skin, and a bubble wrap appearance.
You'll need to make an appointment with Hunar Clinic to discuss your options for dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections to add volume to the neck and décolletage area, giving you a smoother, more youthful appearance.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes, including the additional time needed to discuss your goals for the non-surgical treatment. Before treatment, Hunar Clinic carefully marks the area to guarantee that the substance is administered accurately to the regions agreed upon during the consultation.
You may suffer some discomfort during the treatment, so a local anaesthetic should be used prior, or some dermal fillers come with a local anaesthetic (0.3 per cent lidocaine) included for a more comfortable treatment.
Dermal fillers comprise Hyaluronic Acid, a long-lasting but not permanent injectable chemical made from natural and synthetic materials that have been designed to restore skin to its youthful appearance.
Dr Mittal may employ a mix of dermal fillers and anti-relaxing injectables depending on the depth of the line. Only modest doses of muscle relaxing injectables are needed to weaken the muscle, injected into the dermis 1-2cm apart.
This is a safe therapy with benefits that can last 3–5 months. However, some women may develop a ‘veiny' appearance to their neck as they age. This is due to the platysma muscle becoming more prominent, causing platysmal bands. These bands contribute to the so-called "turkey neck" that many women develop as they age.
Anti-relaxing injectables prevent muscles from tightening and forming wrinkles and bulging and forming a ‘turkey neck' appearance.
The area may be red, swollen, and in some cases, slight bruising after the treatment, but the aesthetic results will be noticeable right away. Due to your reaction, it may take up to ten days for the complete results to appear, as each patient is different.
Dermal Fillers are long-lasting but not permanent, and depending on the area treated, Ellanse can last up to 12 months or longer, but repeated treatments are required to maintain the appearance.
Women sometimes overlook the décolletage, believing that skincare and sun protection ends at the chin. Dr Prerna Mittal advises wearing sunscreen all year round on your face, décolletage, and other regions that are exposed to the sun.
When the collagen in the skin breaks down, wrinkles occur, combined with volume loss from ageing, pollution, and in some cases, abrupt weight changes, causing the chest to lose its youthful appearance.
Dr Prerna Mittal will discuss your options with you at your appointment, as treatments differ depending on the patient, the number of treatments, the brand, and the amount of money needed.
