Treating the Decollete

Women of any age can pull off this provocative look!

 

By Danné Montague-King ©2016

Nothing is more beautiful than creamy shoulders segueing into smooth and lovely décolleté topping off a strapless evening gown. This was once the very Hallmark of Gibson Girl beauty in Edwardian times when the showing of legs or even an ankle was viewed with shock and considered ‘déclassé’! Plunging necklines, even the bra-less looks are back and flaunt from red carpets and tabloids everywhere! Women of any age can still pull off this provocative look with the right undergarments and bra—but not if there are three cleavage lines, irregular brown spots and the tell-tale “V” of sun reddened coarse tissue screaming “I’m not young anymore and should just cover up” This is especially inherent here in Southern California where an entire generation of baby-boomer-beachbeauties spend a fortune on BOTOX®, peels and fillers yet seem to despair about what to do with that raddled, hyper pigmented “V” that points down like an avenging arrow from the clavicle and neck.


YET THE DÉCOLLETÉ IS THE LAST FOCUS OF ESTHETICIANS, PLASTIC SURGEONS, DERMATOLOGISTS AND THE END CLIENT.


Many women are aware they have this condition but don’t know what to do about it. First of all an ounce of prevention—treat your chest the same way you treat your face—sun screen ALL the time no matter where you are in the sun or what you are wearing. It’s the bits that hang out that suffer solar damage and prolapses of epidermal tissue. Secondly, enzymatic skin tightening on a regular basis will hydrolyse dead and brownish dying cells, leaving behind a firmer “playing field” and eventually only ONE cleavage line. This is accomplished by lifting the pectoris major—and the entire breast will firm up as well. Creating homeostasis in the intercellular fluids will reduce the erythema and possible thread veins. This can be accomplished with enzymatic muscle banding treatments and micro-current. Mocking the natural, acid mantle with a spray mist that has the herbal content of minerals that resembles sudoriferous secretion and occluding it into the skin with a fractionated tocopherol oil that imitates sebum will insure an all-day long moisture barrier that will restore turgidity and bounce to the upper breast and clavicle area Melanin inhibitors will remove the melasmas and other hyper pigmented areas (they will fade to yellow first then disappear) and water- into-oil formulas will not only store nutrients into breast epidermal tissue but will prevent TEWL in that area.


CREAMY DÉCOLLETÉ IS ON ITS WAY!

CAN THE BREAST AREA BE PEELED?


I have always thought of the word “peel” to be a misnomer! Our skin is not like an onion or a torte cake with many layers that can either be burned off (chemical peel) or vaporized off (laser). Certainly there is a redundant buildup of old dead cells and melanin on solar damaged decollates but the skin is weak here so any attack whether it is mechanical (blading, micro dermablading) or acids are not advised. Certain blends of AHA’s and Retinoid with low percentages of each, can be used to not only remove but to rebuild the weakened tissues at the same time. Enzymatic treatments are even better for a fast result for tissue not deeply solar compromised, the above mentioned protocols and of course home regimen for melanin inhibiting and protection is a must.
