It’s a known fact that women tend to take good care of their face and delicate eye area, but we get lazy when it comes to the skin below our chins. The all important neck and decollete are often neglected—not receiving their fair share of rejuvenating anti-aging creams, serums, and a daily dose of SPF50. The result is not so pretty. Lines, wrinkles, creases between the breasts, and premature skin sagging are the consequences, especially in an area that is so often exposed to the sun’s harmful rays. Just as your hands can give away your age, so too goes your chest.
Ultherapy has made a big splash as the first and only FDA cleared non-invasive treatment for the neck, eyebrow, and under-chin lift. Now Ultherapy is poised to tackle the chest area too. It has recently received an FDA nod to improve lines and wrinkles of the décolleté.
The Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment uses the same signature imaging and focused ultrasound technology that delivers energy deep below the skin. It stimulates the natural formation of collagen and elastin in the skin’s foundation to gradually smooth chest wrinkles to make them less noticeable.
According to New York Plastic Surgeon Bryan G. Forley, “Results from Ultherapy are typically visible after about three months, and in some cases, a second treatment is advisable at that time. The treatment takes less than an hour for the full face and neck, and you can go back to work or resume your normal routine right away. I think it will be a great addition to treat the decolletage as well.”
As with the FDA-cleared Ultherapy procedure for lifting the neck, eyebrow, and under the chin, results for the décolleté can be achieved with a single treatment with no downtime. “There is a high patient demand for a safe and effective solution to treat the chest, but the only options available involved needles, multiple treatments, recovery time, and/or restricted sun exposure,” said principal investigator Sabrina Fabi, MD of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego. “Now, with the Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment, I can offer women a solution that consistently works and can be done on their lunch hour, at any time of year.”
The Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment will soon be available at more than 1,500 dermatology and plastic surgery practices across the U.S. Find an ultherapist near you at ultherapy.com.
