The décolletage is the upper part of a woman’s torso, including the neck, shoulders and chest area. It is one of the first places on a woman’s body that will develop fine lines and wrinkles.
Hormonal changes brought on by the menopause and oestrogen deficiency result in an acceleration of the breakdown of collagen and elastin. This leads to thinner skin, dryness and an increase in wrinkles.
Vertical creases begin to appear on the décolletage due to the decrease in the skin’s elasticity.Sun exposure will also lead to other signs of ageing such as sun spots.
Many non-invasive aesthetic treatments commonly used on the face can also be used to give the décolletage back its youthful appearance. We provide some of these treatments at Harpenden Skin Clinic.
If you relate to this condition but still feel unsure, at Harpenden Skin Clinic we are always here to help and advise patients on the best possible treatment journey performed by experienced clinicians.
