Skinboosters for a beautiful décolleté

Skinboosters for a beautiful décolleté

When it comes to aesthetic treatments, most of us think of the face first. Yet the décolleté (along with the neck and hands) is one of the skin areas where signs of ageing such as wrinkles, thinning skin and sun damage can appear early. Especially for side sleepers, the skin on the décolleté often shows so-called "sleep wrinkles". After an aesthetic facial treatment, many patients are pleased with their refreshed and rested appearance. However, if there is a marked contrast between the skin quality of the face and décolleté, this can be strikingly unattractive. Especially at this time of year, patients often ask the question:

"What can be done about wrinkles on the décolleté?"

My favourite treatment for wrinkles and thinning skin on the neck and décolleté are Injectable Moisturizers. I use two different preparations in my practice in Munich, Profhilo® and Skinbooster. Both are thin-flowing cross-linked hyaluronic acid preparations that are injected into the lower skin layer. There they spread and within a short time provide a significant increase in the deep hydration of the skin (like a "moisturiser from within"). In contrast to "filling" individual wrinkles with hyaluronic acid fillers, this is a large-scale improvement of the skin quality and structure with a firming effect. Another effect that has even been scientifically proven is the lasting bio-stimulation that lasts for weeks and months after the treatment. Bio-stimulation (or "bio-remodeling") means that the body's own production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin is stimulated by the treatment with skin boosters.

 

Frequently asked questions about wrinkle treatment on the décolleté

How does the treatment with Injectable Moisturizers (Skinbooster, Profhilo®) work?

With Profhilo®, 2 mL of the product is injected into about 10 depots. The injection points are targeted to the areas where the skin is thinnest and most wrinkled. Skinbooster is injected either with a fine needle in a grid pattern or in a fan shape with a blunt cannula. The advantage of the cannula technique is that 3 - 4 punctures of the skin are usually sufficient per treatment area.

Is the treatment of cleavage wrinkles painful?

Due to the local anaesthetic applied before the treatment, the punctures are hardly noticeable. With Profhilo®, a very slight burning sensation may be felt during the injection, whereas the injection of skin boosters is very comfortable due to the lidocaine contained. On the other hand, the treatment time with Profhilo® is usually much shorter. The entire treatment, including the exposure time of the anaesthetic cream, takes about 20 - 30 min.

What do I have to pay attention to before and after the treatment?

Please do not take any blood-thinning painkillers (such as aspirin) for one week before the treatment. It is best to avoid sports, excessive alcohol consumption, bathing, sauna and sunbathing for 24 hours after the treatment. The treated area can be cooled a little. The injection sites should not be massaged until all redness and swelling has disappeared. I recommend avoiding cosmetic treatments in the treated area for a fortnight.

Are there any side effects of skin booster treatment?

After a Profhilo® treatment in my practice in Munich, small "bumps" may appear at the injection points, which usually disappear within a few hours (or overnight). Profhilo® distributes itself in the subcutaneous tissue. The swellings should have disappeared completely after two days at the latest. Due to the slightly different injection technique, this effect can be expected to a lesser extent with Skinboosters. However, the treated skin areas may be slightly red for 24 hours. Small bruises are possible with all Injectable Moisturizer treatments.

How many treatments with Profhilo® or Skinbooster are recommended?

I recommend two treatments at intervals of four weeks for both Profhilo® and Skinboosters. In individual cases, a third treatment may be necessary. The effect of Injectables Moisturizers lasts about 9 - 12 months.

How much does the treatment with Profhilo® or Skinboosters cost?

The treatment costs are approximately 250 € per treatment. This applies to one treated area each (décolleté / neck / face / hands). All Profhilo® and Skinbooster treatments in my practice in Munich are considered aesthetic treatments and are therefore self-pay services.
