Patients who spend a significant amount of time in the sun may start to experience sunspots or brown spots on their chest or décolletage area. These areas are commonly exposed to the sun, which can cause these spots along with wrinkles and other signs of premature aging. IPL treatments in Boston can help to rejuvenate your décolletage and chest areas.
What is Décolletage Rejuvenation?
Decolletage rejuvenation is done with IPL treatments or Intense Pulsed Light treatments. This treatment uses intense pulses of light to target pigmented cells, destroying the discoloration that causes brown spots or sunspots. It can also treat mild wrinkles on the neck and chest.
How does Décolletage Rejuvenation work?
Before undergoing IPL treatments, Dr. Nathan Narasimhan will discuss the process with you as well as go over your aesthetic goals. Patients often describe treatments as feeling like rubber band snaps against their skin, though most tolerate this quite well. Topical anesthetics cannot be used during IPL treatments, because it causes the constriction of blood vessels, causing the treatment to be ineffective.
Who is a good candidate for Décolletage Rejuvenation?
If you are a healthy, non-smoker who has unwanted wrinkles, brown spots, sun spots, freckles, or age marks on their neck, chest, or décolletage area, décolletage rejuvenation may be right for you.
What should I expect during recovery from Décolletage Rejuvenation?
For optimal results, patients should undergo a series of three IPL treatments spaced at lease six months apart. Results should be visible six weeks after treatment. Possible side effects include redness and soreness, though these issues should resolve over time.
