After the eye area, the décolletage is the part of our body most prone to ageing. It is far more delicate than our facial complexion because it doesn’t produce as much oil as the rest of our skin and is often the first to develop wrinkles. This area, like the expressive muscles in our face, has a lot of skin stresses placed up on it from movement, weight, and exposure to sunlight. The visible signs of ageing don’t just show on our face, and luckily areas besides our face can now be treated by advanced techniques with dermal fillers.
Sun exposure, lack of daily moisturising, and the natural ageing process can cause the skin in the neck and décolletage to lose volume. Skin folds and wrinkles may appear that are too deep to be treated with topical moisturisers and anti-ageing cream. Your skin quality can also suffer following this natural degradation, either becoming thin and crinkled like paper or thickening in areas.
Sun exposure is a particularly large component in the visible signs of ageing in this area. The skin covering the chest area tends to get a lot of UV exposure and is naturally thinner here than on other parts of the body. Once the collagen in the skin breaks down, the wrinkles present tend to linger and tend to worsen as inevitable gravity pulls the skin down.
Even factors such as hormonal changes can lead to the visible signs of ageing becoming more prevalent on the chest. For those women encountering the menopause, this area may experience volume changes due to an oestrogen deficiency. As well as dermal fillers, Omniya also offer hormone replacement therapy to help you manage the menopause.
As we age, we naturally lose collagen and our production of it declines, so we lose volume and our skin can appear sagging or loose. This leads to the prominence of skin folds that can’t be rectified by simple highstreet creams. We use a dermal filler made of Hyaluronic Acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, to ensure safe and reliable treatment.
We use lots of tiny microinjections to replenish moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines while plumping the skin. This precise technique greatly lowers the risk of leaving ‘bumps’ of product under the skin. Because we are so careful and precise with our treatment, a course of injections may be recommended to ensure you receive the fullest yet most natural-looking effect possible.
Treatment with dermal fillers for the décolletage doesn’t just add subtle volume. It can hydrate far deeper into the skin than topical moisturisers can and works to fill the folds from within. It can also rejuvenate skin quality and revitalise skin tone to combat the visible appearance of the sun’s damage.
Your treatment with dermal fillers could take anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area, and is relatively painless. A topical numbing cream will be applied to numb the surface skin, but you will only feel a small scratch. Your results are usually evident within a week and can last for up to 6 to 9 months.
Dermal fillers are effective at restoring localised volume to areas of the face such as the cheeks and lips, but they can also treat much larger surface areas. The key to this treatment is the use of many precise injection sites in the chest and neck, using tiny amounts of dermal filler at frequent intervals to subtly rejuvenate an entire area.
The qualified professionals at Omniya in Mayfair can not only replenish facial volume but also perform advanced dermal filler treatment to the décolletage. The visible signs of ageing can make us feel self-conscious, especially when visible in day-to-day life, but targeted treatment can help.
