Preventing Chest Wrinkles

11/29/2011

Utah woman without chest wrinklesDr. Karen Stolman was a guest on Connect2Utah's Fresh Living show to discuss chest wrinkle prevention. Chest wrinkles can appear in women as they age, particularly if they have been exposed to too much sun in the chest area. The show features a device called an Intimia® chest pillow, which could possibly prevent the development of chest wrinkles, although this has not been proven definitively. 

Dr. Stolman emphasizes that the best strategy is prevention, and using skin moisturizers may also help prevent chest wrinkles. Sunscreen should be worn consistently whenever the skin of the chest is exposed to the sun, such as while wearing a low-cut shirt. Fillers such as Juvederm® are a last-resort option that some doctors provide for filling in chest wrinkles.
