Why does our décolletage age?

When we are younger our skin works in a very productive way making plenty of Hyaluronic acid (hydration molecule), Elastin (keeps our skin bouncy) and Collagen (keeps our skin plump and youthful), however from the age of 20 our skin makes 1% less collagen and elastin every year. It’s natural cell renewal process also slows down, resulting in the skin becoming lined, pigmented and wrinkled. External factors also contribute to premature ageing and how we live our lives has a huge impact on our skin. Ageing is a fact of life, but looking your age is a choice!

What contributes to décolletage ageing?

  • Sun exposure – UVA rays in the sun contribute to premature ageing resulting in lines and wrinkles, UVB rays cause pigmentation and age spots
  • Smoking – This is one of the most damaging things you can do to your skin, as smoking starves your cells of vital oxygen needed for normal function
  • Pollution – A build up of pollution on the skin can cause pores to clog and result in skin damage
  • Drinking alcohol – Alcohol has been found to reduce the skins ability to form elastin fibres
  • Diet – Eating fast food and high sugar diets affect skin health and slow skin renewal processes
  • Breasts – The weight of breasts can cause skin pulling and stretching resulting in wrinkles appearing around the cleavage and décolletage

What can you do to prevent décolletage ageing?

  • Use SPF daily – Most people apply sun protection to their face but miss out the neck and décolletage. These areas are just as prone to sun exposure as the face is so apply sun protection to face, neck and chest everyday
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle – Avoid smoking, excessive alcohol intake and sugar. Drink plenty of water and eat an antioxidant rich diet including fruit and vegetables
  • Wear well-fitting bras – If you have a larger chest, then wear a well fitted bra (especially when sleeping) to avoid the skin pulling and stretching
  • Use skincare – Don’t just use your skincare regime on your face. Cleanse and exfoliate regularly and apply skincare to the face, neck and chest

Decolletage FAQ

Using daily skincare on the decolletage is recommended to increase cell turnover including cosmeceutical products such as Vitamin A (retinol), Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C to improve the appearance of the area.

To prevent further decolletage ageing we would recommend regular HydraFacial treatments to improve hydration and overall skin health.

For deep lines, loss of elasticity and pigmented skin we would recommend a course of Innopen (micro-needling) treatments to create a controlled wound and stimulate fresh new collagen and elastin, tightening and rejuvenating the skin.
