Chest wrinkles. In addition to noticeable fine lines on the face, neck and back of hands, there are other parts of the body which are just as susceptible to wrinkles. These are particularly common in women, who often wear clothing with open necklines, exposing the delicate skin of the decollete area. The sun's rays damage skin in the chest area, leading to wrinkles and fine lines. Luckily, there are things you can do to prevent this from happening.

Prevent Chest Wrinkles

  • Wear protective clothing if you'll be in the sun for extended periods of time. This can prevent sun damage and keep fine lines from appearing.

  • Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet of fresh (preferably organic) foods rich in nutrients and vitamins. Healthy eating helps your skin to retain its youthful appearance. Exercise regularly and stay hydrated by drinking water, but don't overdo it. Too much water can be bad.

  • Cigarettes and excessive alcohol tend to accelerate the aging process, leading to premature wrinkling of the skin, so avoid smoke (and pollution) and drink only in moderation.
  • There are moisturizers and anti-wrinkle creams you can apply nightly to your chest area before you go to bed. It's not always necessary to spend a lot of money on expensive lotions and potions, either. A simple bottle of organic aloe vera gel can do the trick. It usually must be kept refrigerated, so warm it up in your hands before rubbing it on.

  • Products like the Bosom Buddy Breast Pillow

    can be used at night while sleeping to help minimize the appearance of these fine lines.

    There are also treatments available to make chest wrinkles less noticeable. Laser and other treatments which boost collagen production. Kim Kardashian (at 33!) underwent a laser treatment. Chemical peels can also be utilized - with the help of a dermatologist - to reduce their appearance.

    Dermal Fillers are an option as well.

    The amount of time one experiences optimal results from a filler injection varies from one patient to another because each person’s body metabolizes the medication differently. Depending on the type and amount of product used, results will also vary. Hyaluronic acid filler, for example, tends to last between six to 12 months. Sculptra reportedly has lasted for up to two years, but it typically requires a few treatment sessions.

    There is no downtime after a procedure. Patients generally return to their normal activities right after their treatment session. There could be some redness, swelling, and/or bruising after treatment, but it should not last more than a few days.
