Sublative RF fractional skin resurfacing is usually only associated with the face. You may be surprised to know that cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins often recommends skin resurfacing for the décolletage (the chest area) too. The chest tends to develop wrinkles and sunspots, sometimes even more severely than the facial area.
We have been programmed to religiously use sunscreen on our faces, rain or shine, summer or winter. As a result, many of us have wrinkle-free, creamy-skinned faces, but pair that with a chest full of hyperpigmentation (sun spots) and vertical wrinkles (wrinkles that go up and down, especially in the middle of the chest), and your age is out there for all to see!
Before we get into how to treat vertical wrinkles and sunspots on the décolletage, we have to put a word in about preventing the chest area from aging. Treat the chest as part of the facial area and apply sunblock daily to both areas.
A sunblock popular amongst Evolutions clients is TIZO3, SPF 40. TIZO is made up of Titanium, Iron, and Zinc Oxides that offers a sheer protection with a silky, matte finish. It is a sunblock and is formulated without chemical sunscreen filters and is free of paraben, oil, PABA and fragrance. TIZO3 is available in Santa Barbara at Evolutions Medical Spa.
If you already have visible sun damage in the chest area, you can treat it with the newest fractional skin resurfacing device – the Sublative RF – that is available exclusively at Evolutions. This latest skin resurfacing technology replaces the Matrix RF and is 30% more powerful and a more comfortable treatment to undergo and can be done without topical numbing cream!
The Sublative RF treats a range of skin conditions and skin types, can be used on the face or body, and treats:
- acne scars / pitting
- superficial skin lesions
- textural irregularities
- skin laxity
Typically your skin can be renewed in about 3 to 4 treatments, each 4 to 6 weeks apart with minimal downtime and noticeable improvement!
