The skin in the upper chest area is thin, has little subcutaneous tissue and few sebaceous glands and is therefore prone to wrinkles, furrows and pigmentation disorders. Moisture can be poorly stored at this skin quality, so that wrinkles are common. In addition, the collagen structure decreases over the years, the elasticity of the skin decreases due to a lack of water storage. The cleavage is correspondingly wrinkled. Additional sunlight puts pressure on the sensitive skin. Care measures should be taken preventively and early.
The natural skin aging process in the décolleté can not be prevented, but there are ways and means of delaying or reducing the formation of wrinkles. In addition to a healthy lifestyle, which includes a healthy diet, adequate hydration and the elimination of cigarettes, further minimally invasive measures can help to create a nice and firm décolleté - without surgical procedures, cosmetic medicine reduces wrinkles in the décolleté.
There are several methods of décolleté-smoothing to reduce wrinkles. These are usually minimally invasive procedures that require no surgical intervention. For this reason, they are considered low-risk procedures that, despite their simplicity, produce positive results.
One way to smooth the wrinkles created in the décolleté, is the injection of different fillers. In particular, hyaluronic acid offers good wrinkle reduction. This naturally occurring substance is produced less and less by the body with age, which leads to the relaxation of the skin. If it is now supplied by an injection of the skin, which binds moisture and stimulates the formation of new collagen. This results in a smoothing, refreshing effect.
As the folds in the décolleté are often very deep, a hyaluronic gel is usually used for injection. This automatically cushions and smooths the wrinkles through its volume. The décolleté is completely rejuvenated. The wrinkle injection of the décolleté with hyaluronic acid should be repeated several times to obtain a clear result.
Thread lifting is a gentle alternative to traditional surgical lifting. It tightens and smoothes the skin with the help of a special thread (PDO) that is placed under the skin. This pulls the skin back and tightens it that way. The thread also stimulates collagen production, which also supports the cushioning and firming effect. Applied to the décolleté, the thread lift can achieve a noticeable rejuvenating effect without the need for surgery.
Microneedling und ‘Vampire’ lifting (PRP)
A gentle revolution among the anti-aging methods is microneedling, as it hardly strains the skin, minimizes many common skin disorders and provides amazing results. This method is particularly effective for areas that are otherwise difficult to access for therapies and where there is no way to perform an surgical operation in the décolleté area.
Microneedling is an external application for the skin, which is performed with special devices such as the DermaPen, and stimulates collagen synthesis. In icroneedling treatment, the DermaPen perforates the epidermis with a variety of sterile titanium needles, creating the finest channels and stimulating the natural revitalization and regeneration process. In the uppermost layer of the skin, tiny lesions that stimulate certain receptors in the skin occur, which are decisive for the formation of new collagen. In this way, their increased release can support the regeneration of the skin from the inside out and tighten the connective tissue. Microneedling can be used to additionally apply hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, E and C or growth factors (PRP) to the skin in order to achieve an effectively stronger end result. The additional treatment with your own growth factors PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is also known as vampire lifting. The treatment is minimally invasive, so that it is gentle to the skin and unlike a laser treatment can be repeated often, as it is a non-ablative procedure: the skin does not become thinner!
Nourishing creams and serums
Anti-wrinkle creams promise a skin-smoothing and firming effect and an intensive supply of moisture to the skin. They can also be applied to the décolleté, to achieve a certain level of smoothing results. However, the deep longitudinal folds in the décolleté are usually so pronounced that creams cannot deliver sufficient moisture, and contained active ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, cannot penetrate deep enough into the skin. They evaporate quickly and cannot achieve long-lasting results. Nevertheless, the regular care of the décolleté with anti-aging creams is recommended to prevent or slow down the development of wrinkles. They provide the skin with moisture and UV protection and thus protect them from stress and dehydration. In this way, skin is kept younger longer.
Further preventive measures
In order to keep the décolleté young and firm for a long time, there are some methods and measures that prevent wrinkles. An adequate application of sunscreen protects against premature skin aging, and hinders development of wrinkles. Creams with adequate SPF are recommended to protect against damaging UV radiation.
Even sleeping on the side or on the stomach can favor the development of wrinkles in the décolleté. Especially the deep longitudinal folds between the breasts are caused by sleeping on the side. Sleeping on your back can prevent these wrinkles.
Another way to reduce wrinkles in the chest area is to wear anti-pleat décolleté pads or a sleep-bra during the night. The so-called sleep-bras are visually reminiscent of a sports bra and contain a cushion between the breasts, which prevents direct contact and thus prevents wrinkles. Likewise, an improperly fitted bra can cause wrinkles in the décolleté. The bra should sit properly and not squeeze the breasts too much creating the desired push-up effect.
Whether one is suitable for a minimally invasive treatment of the décolleté depends mainly on the type of treatment. In general, the procedures are aimed at women whose skin has lost its elasticity and first wrinkles have developed.
In the case of a wrinkle injection, it must be determined in advance of the treatment if the patient has intolerances or allergies to the injected substances. Otherwise, alternative methods must be considered.
Also when thread lifting, the compatibility of the thread material should be checked.
An attractive neckline attracts attention not only in bikini and underwear, it can also be skillfully presented in an evening dress or blouse. The greatest advantage of the treatments is their simplicity. It does not require any surgical intervention to smooth and tighten the décolleté. Instead, gentle methods are used that do not burden the body and achieve clear results with simple means. They promise a long-lasting smoothing of wrinkles and leave no scars that could tip others off to your rejuvenating intervention.
The wrinkle-free décolleté looks very natural after the treatment. It can be emphasized with the help of the right bra.

The treatments are very gentle and low in risk. There may be incompatibilities with the injected substances. However, these are rare, since most of the body's own substances (such as hyaluronic acid) are used.
After the treatments, slight swelling and redness may occur, but this is normal and heals quickly. Even temporary slight sensory disturbances in the area of the injection sites are no cause for concern. Some methods require repetition of the treatment to achieve the desired result. A wrinkle injection should be repeated after a few weeks to intensify the result. Over time, the injected substances are broken down naturally by the body, which is why the injection must be performed again after a certain time.
The cost of the treatment of the décolleté depend primarily on the chosen treatment method.
