There are a variety of dermal filler treatments made to rejuvenate the skin of the neck and chest. In the chest area, women often worry that their décolletage is showing excessive signs of ageing.
Sun exposure, lack of daily moisturising and ageing causes the skin in this area to become lax, pigmented, and wrinkled. Skin folds may deepen into wrinkles and the skin may become crinkly and paper-thin or to develop a leather-like texture.
The effect may be noticeable as vertical lines crease the chest and cleavage in women which can extend up to the neckline. These wrinkles are caused when the skin produces lower levels of collagen and elastin and hyaluronic acid which is needed to give skin a plump and hydrated appearance. While anti-ageing creams may be successful at moisturising the skin surface and can improve some fine lines, they do not remove deeper folds.
Fortunately, we have a range of products which we can use to improve the décolletage. Dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid injected in the wrinkles and surrounding skin will instantly improve and remove deep lines and wrinkles. The treatment is pain-free as a local anaesthetic cream is applied before the injections are administered.
We can additionally improve the area with the use of skin boosting treatments for improvement in the elasticity and hydration of the skin. Chemical peels can be used to address pigmentation marks and sun damage. We can use bio-remodelling treatments such as Profhilo to support all the skin layers and the fat cells beneath the skin to further improve the skin in the décolletage.
The course of treatment recommended may vary according to age, skin condition and preference. As treatment progresses, the skin regains its youthful elasticity for a beautiful, smooth appearance.
Dermal filler treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes, most of the improvement can be seen instantly with skin-toning results in the neck and chest evident within a week. Lasting for up to between nine and fifteen months, depending on skin condition, annual or bi-annual top-up maintenance treatments may be applied for lasting natural, youthful complexion that enhances appearance and self-confidence.

What our clients say about this treatment
I came to Julia after training elsewhere initially. My first training was with a large company who promised the earth but delivered a poor standard of training. I felt terrified at the thought of being let loose on the public with just one model treatment completed. Julia was kind and understanding and put me at ease right away. Her skill as a trainer is incredible, she has a natural ability to make things understandable and interesting. I was nervous and shaky but within a couple of hours it all clicked, and my confidence grew. Since then Julia has been true to her word and helped me enormously, I never feel as if it’s too much trouble when I ask questions. My business is now growing, and I am so pleased I decided to retrain. I think everyone should train at Clinic 1, best decision I have ever made.
Julia is just great. I studied foundation botulinum toxin with her and after left feeling completely happy and competent to start treating clients straight away! I also retrained in tear trough with Julia as previous training from another company wasn’t good enough to start treating clients but after my master class I had no worries at all and they all look great. She is also always there after training and answers all my questions (I ask a lot lol) quickly and in- depth. Thank you Julia !
After doing a lot of research into aesthetic courses, I found clinic one. I’ve trained with Julia three times now, and out of all of the courses I’ve done, Julia’s courses are by far the most in depth and informative. Julia’s extensive knowledge and one to one training gave me the confidence I now have today. I would highly recommend.
