As we age our skin loses elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles can begin to develop.
This happens from a decrease in collagen production as well as sun damage from everyday sun exposure.
We begin to notice these changes on our faces first!
As a result we tend to give all of our attention to our faces. We start with microdermabration or special cleansers and moisturizers that will help plump and rejuvenate our skin.
Meanwhile, other areas of our body that are also experiencing skin changes often get ignored. A décolletage is just a fancy French term used to describe a woman’s chest and cleavage area. And unfortunately, if this area goes ignored for too long, it can give away a woman’s age, even though her face is trying to tell a different story.
You may have seen individuals with crêpey neck skin, deep creases between their cleavage, and age spots all over the chest. Unfortunately, many people stop their sun protection and anti-aging efforts at the chin.
The fact of the matter is, after the eye area, its the skin of the décolletage is the most prone to sun damage due to repeat exposure, which in turn causes rapid aging.
The skin more delicate in the décolletage area but there is also the stress on the skin from movement, the weight of the breasts and frequent exposure to UV rays.
The good news is, there are treatments that can improve the appearance of the décolletage. The same non-invasive procedures that give the face a more vibrant and youthful appearance also work well on the delicate décolletage area. One of those procedures is called microneedling.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling for décolletage is a skin-rejuvenating procedure that uses tiny needles to create punctures in the very top layer of the skin in the décolletage area. Microneedling was once an old-school beauty treatment, but it is making a big comeback with A-listers such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston singing its praises.
While the idea of poking tiny holes in your face might sound painful when done properly, the procedure is pretty much painless and risk-free, and offers huge benefits for your skin
The entire process takes roughly 25 minutes and it can be added on to any microneedling face and neck procedure at Lash Factory. We always combine microneedling on the décolletage with a beautiful Australian HA & Vitamin B infusion.
The tiny needles are moved across the skin using the latest microneedling derma-pen on the market!
Microneedling is like giving your body’s natural healing abilities a jump start. The result is smoother, firmer, younger-looking décolletage skin.
By promoting collagen growth, microneedling can actually help reverse the signs of aging not just on the face, but other areas of the body as well such as the décolletage area.
How Long Do Microneedling Results Last?
Typically, a series of four to six microneedling treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is suggested. Maintenance treatments as needed. Collagen induction brought on by skin needling will develop over up to two months! Once the 6 are complete we recommend seasonal or twice yearly depending on age and damage to skin.
Aging never stops so neither should needling treatments expecially for exposed areas such as the décolletage. Book microneedling with us today www.rarelashfactory.com/book-online
