Botox for décolletage lines and wrinkles
The lower neckline and cleavage areas are known as décolletage. Unless one wears high-neck collars every day, this area is frequently exposed to harmful UV radiation. These rays cause sun damage in the form of both skin discoloration (age spots) and wrinkles. While daily, consistent use and reapplication of sunscreen can reduce and prevent premature ageing of this skin, Botox is remarkably effective at diminishing these lines once they've appeared.
How can such a small area of skin age me so dramatically?
We tend to put much less effort into caring for and maintaining our décolletage than we do our faces or upper neck area. Think about it: Do you always take your skincare serums and sunscreens down to or under your bra line? Do you reapply SPF every two hours or immediately after sweating or swimming? Most of us don't. The contrast between our comparatively well-maintained faces and the mottled, lined skin of the décolletage makes for a striking, unflattering contrast.
How does Botox treat décolletage wrinkles?
Botox is a safe, trusted treatment for wrinkles on the face, neck, and décolletage. As in other areas, Botox reduces muscle activity that leads to the formation and deepening of wrinkles. It also gives skin a taut, firmer appearance. Skin that was once slack and crêpey is smoother, tighter, and more youthful.
What can I expect from this treatment?
Once your SISU doctor has expertly injected Botox into precise, targeted areas of your décolletage, the movement of muscles in those areas will be reduced. This means new wrinkles are less likely to form, while existing wrinkles are smoothed and diminished. Relaxation and smoothing of the targeted areas will be visible within four to six days post-treatment. The peak for this effect is typically reached at 14 days post-treatment. At that point, Botox will deliver visible results for the next three months.
What else should I know?
There was a time when serious surgery was required to treat wrinkled skin in the décolletage area. Now, thanks to the innovative injecting techniques and ultra-fine needles SISU's doctors are highly skilled in using, these wrinkles can be diminished with a non-surgical treatment you can have on your lunch hour. Botox for the décolletage has virtually zero downtime and mildly uncomfortable rather than painful.
