Is Your Chest Aging You?
December 9, 2023

Beautiful woman with smooth skin.

When we think of aging, the first things that come to mind are typically wrinkles around your eyes and sagging, well, everywhere. Of course, we have Botox and skin tightening treatments for that.

But what about the skin on your chest? Even when you have erased facial wrinkles or glammed up with age-defying makeup, the region just below your face and neck can give you away.

How Your Chest Ages You

More elegantly referred to as the décolletage, the area below the neck and above the breasts is often as on-display as your facial features. For this reason, the skin is often exposed to the sun, and, regrettably, we often forget to protect it with daily sunscreen.

As time goes by, your upper chest may be susceptible to lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and loose skin. Much of this may be due to sun damage, but even if you diligently covered up or applied sun protection through the years, normal aging, weight fluctuations, and unhealthy habits such as smoking, a poor diet, or chronic lack of sleep may also contribute to the decline of your décolletage.

As we age, and as a result of the environmental and lifestyle factors we mentioned above, skin begins to slowly decrease its production of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin. Without these essential building blocks to keep skin supple, tight, and smooth, aging skin becomes looser and shows wrinkles and discoloration over time.

Treatments for the Décolletage


Not to worry! Just like we have revolutionary anti-aging treatments for your face and body, there are cutting-edge options for aging skin on the chest.


PRP Microneedling


You may have heard of this popular treatment for the face, but PRP with Microneedling can be used on other areas of the body as well. In fact, PRP with Microneedling is an excellent option for the chest.

What is PRP Microneedling

Microneedling involves using a specialized device to create micro-channels in the surface of the skin. These channels are actually tiny injuries, which your skin works hard to heal. Through this healing process, your body will boost its production of collagen and elastin, resulting in younger-looking skin.

PRP is a concentrated serum that is created by quickly processing a small amount of your own blood. Healing growth factors from your blood are isolated so they can be applied during the microneedling procedure. Because of the channels created, PRP can reach deep into the skin, amplifying the benefits of microneedling.

Why PRP Microneedling Works for the Chest

PRP Microneedling is a perfect choice for the chest, as it is a relatively fast and affordable way to treat a large surface area. It can diminish the look of lines and wrinkles, lift sagging skin, and fade minor discolorations.


Limelight is an even more advanced and effective treatment option that targets hyperpigmentation and is great for the décolletage.

What is Limelight

Limelight utilizes intense pulsed light to penetrate the skin and effectively erase pigmentation issues. The light acts on unsightly discoloration as it creates heat energy, which breaks up pigmentation and promotes healing.

Why Limelight Works for the Chest

Limelight can treat sun spots, redness, freckles, and visible veins that can appear on the chest as a result of sun damage, age, and other factors. Similar to PRP Microneedling, Limelight is a minimally invasive treatment with little or no downtime, making it quite an attractive option for a wide range of patients.
