Give Your Decolletage a Makeover!

June 25, 2018

Do you ever wonder what happened to your chest and décolletage area that you felt confident about in your younger years? Over time, sun exposure, gravity, and sleeping on your side can greatly affect your décolletage area and the way it looks. Sun damage and gravity will take a toll on anyone, but I am sure you are just as surprised as I am about side sleeping contributing to upper chest area laxity and wrinkles. Who would’ve imagined?!

Unlike wrinkles on the face where dermal fillers, such as Restylane or Juvederm, can be used to help fill those areas in, the chest is a bit different. Now, you can give your chest a makeover with Ultherapy which is the only FDA approved device for lifting and tightening. In addition to Ulthearpy’s FDA approval for lifting skin on the forehead, face, and neck, it also has a separate FDA approval for improving the appearance décolletage. The procedure works by using ultrasound technology to deliver energy to precise depths of the muscle and skin which allows the body’s soft tissue to contract. As a result, the body will stimulate new collagen production which then tightens the skin.

Since Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology, it allows the provider to accurately deliver energy without damaging surrounding tissue cells. Many patients who are not interested in going under the knife turn to Ultherapy since it uses the body’s own regenerative response to progressively lift and tighten the skin. Results are not instant and typically don’t start showing until about 3-6 months after treatment.
