Facelifts and breast surgeries are among the most popular cosmetic procedures, but the bit in between the face and breasts - the decolletage - is often forgotten about. Despite the lack of attention given to the chest, it can be a big giveaway about a person’s age - and make people appear older than they really are. That’s because this area gets a lot of sun exposure and is subsequently prone to wrinkling, sagging and discolouration.
The decolletage, which can include part of the shoulders, cleavage, and collarbone regions, provides a ‘frame’ for the face and the bust. It is an area that is on show a lot of the time yet it is one we frequently neglect to take proper care of. Many people forget to include this important area in their skin care regime, failing to moisturise or apply daily sun protection. If you have damage to the decolletage area, don’t despair, there are cosmetic treatments that can help. Surgically, this is a difficult area to treat; because this part of the body is prone to scarring, it’s not suitable for ‘lifting’ in the same way the face and neck are. However, there are a variety of alternative treatments that can help improve the appearance of the skin.
