Skin Care- Beyond Treating Your Face

March 31, 2014

The world of Cosmetic Skin Care can be very confusing. In our practice we spend time educating our clients and base our recommendations from science. Take a moment and learn the science behind caring for your décolletage.

 

Turtle neck season is over and it's time to bare some skin! Although you may have diligently maintained the skin on your face for years, you may not have paid as much attention to the skin on your chest and neck, also known as your décolletage. Is your décolletage giving away your age?

 

 The décolletage is one of the most neglected areas of the body! Why do we spend years pampering our face only to let our chests give our age away? The area is particularly prone to photo ageing, meaning  too much sun combined with the natural thinning of the fat under the skin  results in all sorts of problems from crepey or leathery skin to cleavage wrinkles and age spots!

 

How do you correct and maintain a youthful décolletage?

Just like the skin on your face, your décolletage needs moisture and protection. A daily skin care regimen to protect, tighten, and lighten is just what your décolletage needs.

 

Product Recommendation:

The Obagi ELASTIderm Décolletage System  is an effective regimen specifically formulated to revitalize the appearance of delicate skin on your chest and neck.

 

Complete with 2 products:

1) Skin Lightening Complex- Lightens sun spots with 4% hydroquinone

2) Wrinkle Reducing Lotion- Bi-mineral complex to improve elasticity

 

Also suggested:  A low concentration of Retin A. ( .02-.025%)

Retin A is a prescription strength topical cream that is scientically proven to maintain and repair collagen production. To learn more about Retin A, please visit: http://www.wdfplasticsurgery.com/#!retin-a/cj1w
