With summer coming to an end, I hope everyone has been diligent in the use of sunscreen, on all parts of the body especially the vulnerable décolleté. The skin on the chest, the décolleté, is where many women first start to notice the telltale signs of aging. In fact, once past age 40 is when most women begin to have concerns about the fine lines and wrinkles in this area. And, the skin on the chest is more vulnerable to sun damage than the face because the chest skin is thinner.

Various factors contribute to the visible aging of the décolleté. As is the case with all skin damage, the worst offender is the sun. The ultra-violet rays in sunlight will thin the skin, causing it to lose some of its elasticity and collagen. This results in fine lines and wrinkles.

Another factor that causes décolleté fine lines is when a woman sleeps on her side. Some people refer to these wrinkles as sleep wrinkles because the weight of the breasts causes them to fall together. Additionally, push-up bras when worn for many hours can contribute to the wrinkling of the skin on the chest.

ThermiSmooth is one of the most exciting, non-invasive skin smoothing treatments and it works wonders on the vulnerable décolleté. ThermiSmooth has been shown to actually stimulate new collagen growth. The area is treated for about 5 minutes to achieve the goal of sustained heating to the target tissues and the treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.

This gentle ThermiSmooth treatment can turn back the hands of time on your décolleté in just a few sessions. You’ll love the youthful radiant look of your skin and can wear those sexy low-cut clothes that show it off in all its beauty. But, of course, if you are out in the sun, use sunscreen and keep that area covered as much as you can.
