Breast Skin Rejuvenation
Concern about the appearance of the décolleté is extremely common. Many women experience blotchiness and wrinkles on their chests due to a lifetime of sun exposure as well as the natural aging process. In fact, the skin of the neck and chest gets almost as much sun and environmental exposure as the face, yet it’s thinner and much more delicate. Our skin tightening and skin care patients in Baltimore deserve comprehensive care, which is why we’re pleased to offer rejuvenation of the chest as part of our selection of skin care services.
How Does the Chest Age?
As we age, the body slows its collagen production. This leads to less elasticity and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. The cleavage area is especially vulnerable to wrinkling due to the constant weight of the breasts pulling the skin downward. Additionally, the chest is often exposed to damaging UV rays that can cause significant discoloration and wrinkling.
At Belcara Health, our skincare specialists offer the latest in today’s most effective treatments for improving skin’s color, clarity, tone, and texture. We use state-of-the-art technology and advanced techniques to improve your skin’s health and radiance with a natural-looking, youthful appearance. Each skin rejuvenation treatment can be performed in a range of intensities, depending on the level of correction needed to achieve your goals. More intense procedures, including certain lasers and peels, are performed by our board-certified physicians. Less intense treatments are performed by our registered nurses and licensed aestheticians.
The most important measure you can take to prevent further damage is to use a sunscreen that protects you from UVA radiation. Even if you undergo a clinical treatment, continued sun exposure will only create more brown spots and wrinkles. To reduce any existing brown spots and redness, we recommend using medical-grade products with proven ingredients (such as growth factors, retinoids, vitamin A, alpha-hydroxy acids, kinetin, and peptides) to help restore a smooth, beautiful appearance.
- Microdermabrasion can be used to treat fine lines, superficial skin discoloration, and rough, uneven texture. At Belcara Health, we use a diamond-tip handheld tool to abrade the damaged surface of the skin and reveal more healthy, smooth skin beneath. This cosmetic procedure partially or completely removes the dead, outermost layer of skin (called the stratum corneum) through light abrasion. This can remove sun-damaged skin and reduce fine lines and discoloration while also boosting collagen production, leading to improved tone and texture.
- Chemical peels use acidic chemical compounds to exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal for a healthy, natural glow. They also penetrate the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin and block the production of pigment. The result is improved tone and texture and even more coloration.
- IPL, sometimes called photorejuvenation, uses intense pulsed light to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and redness, resulting in more youthful-looking skin. The pulsed light energy is absorbed by the targeted brown spots, freckles, and small blood vessels and destroyed. It also helps to stimulate the growth of collagen to improve skin’s texture for a more youthful appearance. Although patients will see significant improvement with just 1 treatment, we recommend a series of 3 to 4 to achieve long-term goals.
- Laser skin resurfacing stimulates collagen growth, reduces brown and red discoloration, and provides a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. At Belcara Health, we offer both ablative and non-ablative laser treatments. Ablative treatments remove the thin, outer layers of skin. These treatments are more intense, have a longer recovery, and offer more significant results. Non-ablative lasers penetrate the dermis and create deep heating to regenerate collagen and reduce pigmentation, lines, and wrinkles. These lasers are less intense, require much less recovery time and are generally recommended in a series of 4 to 6 treatments.
