The décolletage is one of the most neglected areas of the body. The skin on your neck and chest are just as important to take care of as on your face, as our chest and neck can receive as much sun as the face. Many woman experience sun spots, freckles or pigmented skin. The earlier you begin taking care of your skin on your chest the better, but for those who haven’t, Dr. Reina recommends a combination of treatments and a good home care routine can produce beautiful results:
The Excel V laser is great for cleaning up a sun-damaged chest. Three to six treatments can eradicate both brown spots and redness.
Diligent use of a sunscreen with antioxidants is integral to maintain your spot free chest. I like Skin Medica Total Defense and Repair.
A lightening cream applied at night is also important to prevent spots from recurring. Lightening creams can also help to treat brown spots. I like SkinMedia’s Lytera® 2.0 cream applied once or twice daily to brighten spots.
