The Decollete

Bend over at the waist wearing only a bra, put your arms together at the elbows and look in a mirror. This is what people see when you wear something low cut and bend over to speak to someone who is seated. Everything that you use on your face should be used on your neck and chest. The ski
n below the neck is delicate so always apply sunscreen there as well.

"The décolleté area is more commonly known as the chest. Wrinkles that form along this area of the body should respond to the same products and procedures that are known to work on the face. This is largely due to the fact that any wrinkle that develops is a result of a combination of factors--including age, heredity and exposure to the sun--according to the National Institutes of Health.

Step 1
Apply a wrinkle cream to the chest each day. Though creams won't necessarily remove wrinkles from the décolleté area, the Mayo Clinic advises that you look for products made with the active ingredients of alpha hydroxy, retinol, kinetin, copper peptides or coenzyme Q10 to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Step 2
Try using Botox on deep wrinkles. While Botox is typically used for facial lines and wrinkles, it may help to lessen the appearance of wrinkles on your chest. The Cleveland Clinic asserts that Botox works by inhibiting the contractions of the muscles. It's administered by injection to provide a more youthful look for anywhere between three and four months.

Step 3
Consider soft tissue fillers. According to the Mayo Clinic, soft tissue fillers fill in deeper lines and wrinkles by injecting collagen or fat under the skin. Much like Botox, it's often reserved for facial imperfections, but it should help to remove wrinkles from the décolleté area. Effects can last as long as six months.

Step 4
Undergo skin resurfacing of the décolleté area. Skin resurfacing is mainly administered through the processes of dermabrasion or chemical peel. Both treatments remove the top layer of the skin, either with a wire brush or chemical agent, respectively. When the skin is removed, new skin is able to form that is healthier and often containing less wrinkles, according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Step 5
Talk to your dermatologist about laser resurfacing. In this form of skin resurfacing, a laser is used to remove the epidermal layer of the chest as well as heat the dermal layer of the skin. This two-fold process not only provides healthier looking skin, but it also stimulates the production of both collagen and elastin. When collagen and elastin build under the skin, they work like soft tissue fillers, filling in deeper lines and wrinkles."
