Top Chest Rejuvenation Treatments for Your Best Chest
By Senior Skincare Specialist, Sammy Swart
Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror, and as you start looking down at your neck and chest, you start pulling your neck tighter and covering up your chest? To an observant eye the neck, chest, forearms, and hands “give away our age”, and in some cases, can make us look older than we really are. Unfortunately, this becomes true for many of us as our bad sunscreen (or lack thereof) habits from our younger years start to show. For most, the realisation only appears when the damage is already done, and the sunspots, crepiness, and sagging chest skin starts to show. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Today we are going to discover our top chest rejuvenation treatments for your best chest ever.
WHY DOES MY CHEST LOOK SO OLD?
The French believe that your face extends from your forehead to your breasts. This means that (starting at home) you should treat these areas accordingly by applying your skincare products and sunblock to all exposed areas of the body. Ideally, the neck and chest should be covered with protective clothing too, such as a scarf, especially when driving as even a little bit of sun exposure daily will lead to premature aging and leather-like skin, requiring the need to chest rejuvenation treatments to start earlier than anticipated. The neck, chest, forearms, and hands are the areas that we tend to neglect all throughout our teens, 20s, and 30s. Then one day we wake up and the skin on these areas looks much older than we really are… What happened?
DO MY NECK AND CHEST NEED SPECIAL TREATMENT?
So many women have flawless skin on their faces, but complain about crêpe and blemished skin on their necks and chests. As Skincare Specialists, we see this every day; younger patients are starting to enquire about how they can rejuvenate their chests. We know, however, that treating the face is extremely forgiving as the skin responds well and heals quickly. Unfortunately, the rest of the body (such as the neck and chest) requires more time to heal and must receive a different approach to rejuvenation as the healing response can be poor.
Surgery, for instance, is not an option for a severely sun-damaged chest. Often women will have breast enhancements expecting a holistically beautiful result, but the results are distracted by blemished, rough, and sagging skin on the chest. Unfortunately, most of us do not pay attention to any of these areas until they start screaming at us for attention with visible signs of sun damage and ageing.
SIGNS OF NECK AND CHEST AGEING
Here are the most common visible signs of neck and chest ageing:
- Large blood vessels
- Skin laxity
- Turkey neck or skin
- Loss of volume
- Uneven skin tone
By the time these signs of ageing begin to show, it is time for us to bring out the big guns as no superficial peel is going to turn back the clock on the years of damage already done. So, what are the big guns we are referring to, you might ask?
TOP RECOMMENDED CHEST REJUVENATION TREATMENTS:
- Lumecca IPL
- Medium Depth Peels
- Signature I-Peel-L Bespoke
- Pixel Peel
- Bio Skin Remodeling
Let’s break down each of these treatments and how they can help you to rejuvenate your chest:
CHEST REJUVENATION WITH LUMECCA IPL
Lumecca Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy is used for the treatment of large sunspots, visible brown lesions, and sun damage. The light gets absorbed into the deeper layers of the epidermis and targets the brown lesions directly. As the effects of IPL start to take place, the treated lesions will start to appear darker and will remain so for 10 – 14 days post-treatment.
After this, the darkened lesions will start to “flake off”, revealing a clearer, smoother, more radiant skin. But why did we choose Lumecca IPL? It offers unbeatable results, with significant improvements in skin complexion, clarity, and overall radiance within a single treatment. It is important to note that the neck and chest area will always take longer to heal than the face, hence winter months being the best time to treat these areas with more intensive treatments.
CHEST REJUVENATION WITH CHEMICAL PEELS
Skin Tech Easy TCA, Mesoestetic Piruvex, and Mesoestetic TCA chemical peels are all classified as medium depth peels. As opposed to superficial chemical peels, these peels penetrate the deeper layers of the epidermis and dermis to stimulate new collagen production. In doing so, it will improve skin laxity and firmness, as well as soften skin texture. Due to the actual peeling of the skin following the days after a medium depth peel, there will be a noticeable difference and improvement in the skin discoloration too. Sunspots appear much lighter and the overall skin appears more radiant.
CHEST REJUVENATION WITH THE PIXEL PEEL
The Pixel Peel is an exciting treatment combining micro-needling and a TCA Peel in one session. Both needling and TCA Peels have been around for some time and we have seen amazing results with them when done as stand-alone treatments. The combination of the two treatments now allows us to use both methods to achieve more effective chest rejuvenation results in one treatment.
With the TCA Peel, we can peel to a deeper level in the skin allowing for the improvement of deeper lines, sun damage, and uneven texture. The TCA Peel is designed to penetrate the epidermal layers to stimulate the skin at a dermal level and it does so via a chemical reaction. The depth to which it has an effect will however depend on the peel layering that is achieved in treatment.
As micro-needling creates microchannels in the skin, it then allows the TCA Peel to penetrate even deeper, resulting in more advanced skin tightening and refining. The channels caused by micro-needling induce a wound healing response in the skin which means more collagen stimulation, resulting in improved structure, better circulation, and nourishment to the skin. Mild peeling and flaking can be expected afterward for 4 – 7 days after a Pixel Peel.
CHEST REJUVENATION WITH THE I-PEEL-L BESPOKE
The Signature I-Peel-L Bespoke is one of our signature treatments that combine the effects of the Lumecca IPL and a Skin Tech Easy TCA peel. This treatment was designed to treat all aspects of the visible signs of ageing, especially those of the neck and décolletage. By incorporating two very effective skin rejuvenation modalities in one treatment, we double up on the results achievable after just one session.
For the first few days after your I-Peel-L Bespoke, your skin will feel dry and tight. It will look “prune-like” and you may experience swelling. Certain areas of the skin may also appear darker (this is normally where more sun damage is present).
On day 7, physical peeling will begin on the neck and chest and continue for a few days. The science behind this peel is to stimulate cellular renewal and regenerate the skin quickly. Again, when treating the neck and chest, the healing process takes will take a little longer than with the face, in this case – 2 to 3 weeks.
CHEST REJUVENATION WITH MORPHEUS8
Morpheus8 is a medical procedure done by one of our Aesthetic Doctors. It is non-surgical advanced technology combining the power of radio-frequency energy with adjustable depth micro-needling to address a variety of skincare problems. The science behind Morpheus8 is that it comfortably penetrates the skin at a deeper level than other micro-needling devices and is the only treatment that can mould fat under the skin by contouring and refining the subdermal layers, making it a great treatment of choice for chest rejuvenation!
The results you can expect from a Morpheus8 chest rejuvenation treatment include improvement in skin tone, deep and fine lines, and wrinkles, and the tightening of loose and sagging skin as well as improved skin texture.
CHEST REJUVENATION WITH SKIN REMODELING
Bio Skin Remodeling is a relatively new and exciting innovation in aesthetic medicine. This injectable antiaging treatment provides us with the combined benefits of a subtle lift from an ordinary soft filler along with the skin quality enhancing effects of a skin booster.
The result is a noticeable improvement not only in the tightness and firmness of the skin, but also in a boost in skin tone and hydration, minimising fine lines and wrinkles and leaving you with a more refreshed rejuvenated, and youthful neck and chest area. It has become extremely popular at our clinic as you only require 2 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart with results lasting up to 6 months!
YOUR JOURNEY TO CHEST REJUVENATION
With all these effective treatments on offer to enhance and improve our beautiful necks and chests, there are still many other contributing factors that will either enhance or affect our results. These include our lifestyles, genetics, eating habits, environmental factors, and much more. Therefore, the most important thing to remember is that prevention is always better than cure… But, should you already have already damage on your gorgeous goods, don’t worry – we have your back…and neck, and chest.
