Do you feel self-conscious when you wear a bathing suit or low-cut shirt? Spots on your décolletage can prevent some women from feeling confident in their own skin.
Fortunately, there are a number of ways to lighten spots on your décolletage without invasive procedures. From topical creams you can use at home to fast-acting laser treatments available in-office, the following treatment options have been found effective in fading spots on the décolletage.
1. Skin Lightening and Brightening Products
If you prefer to lighten your age spots at home, try a topical skin lightening cream. The Dr. Sylvia Advanced Clear Skin Program contains three essential steps designed to lighten liver spots and forms of hyperpigmentation on the skin. Step 3 is the Skin Lightener which contains 4 percent hydroquinone for the correction of unwanted pigmentation in the top layer of the skin. Step 4 is the Exfoliator Forte which contains 14 percent alpha-hydroxy acid to improve skin texture. Step 5 is the Balancer which also contains 4 percent hydroquinone but lightens dark areas in deeper layers of the skin.
2. Chemical Peels
Spots on the décolletage are often caused from frequent sun exposure. Over time, UV light can affect your skin’s pigmentation causing an uneven skin tone that often darkens with repeated exposure to the sun or tanning bed. Cutis Chemical Peel is one option to remove dark spots quickly. Peels containing glycolic acid are especially effective in safely removing the top skin layer to reveal a smooth, even skin tone underneath.
3. Regular Exfoliation
Exfoliation takes just minutes but can provide satisfactory results over time. If you have spots that just won’t fade on your décolletage, maintain a strict exfoliation schedule that involves exfoliating your chest at least once per day.
Limelight is a popular laser pigmentation treatment that offers incredible skin brightening benefits. Suitable for all skin types, Limelight works by heating pigmented areas of the skin which causes a response that eliminates these imperfections. A single Limelight hyperpigmentation treatment typically takes at least 30 minutes. Most patients see results in as little as one to three treatments. To maintain results, incorporate proper sun protection measures into your daily health and beauty routine.
5. Anti-Aging Creams
If you’re dealing with age spots on the skin, a quality anti-aging cream is a must. Opt for a cream containing antioxidants which will help to rebuild collagen and reverse UV damage to your skin cells. Retinol and vitamin C are just a couple ingredients found effective in reversing sun damage. Apply the anti-aging cream at least once a day or according to the instructions on the label.
Years of tanning can leave the décolletage riddled with sunspots. The good news is you don’t need to live with these minor imperfections. Skin lightener treatments are available to women who wish to lighten spots on the skin easily and with no downtime.
