The Décolletage is the area of the neck as it merges to the area between the breasts. This area can often be neglected in terms of skin treatments and care.
It is an area that can age prematurely as it is often the area that has been sun burnt in the past and also has tension pulling the skin apart in the horizontal direction. This is exacerbated by sleeping on your side, smoking and also skin type.
It is also an area prone to poor scarring such as keloid scars.
Prevention is always crucial in the region and as such high Sun Protection Factor (SPF) is advised.
For existing damage such a wrinkling, dryness, creases and pigmentation, combination treatments are best. These include dermal fillers such as Juvderm Volite and Radiesse, laser resurfacing and microneedling.
Dr Rory also recommends the Zenn Obagi skin care range.
