Skin on the décolleté and neck is one of the first areas of the body to show signs of ageing. Most women often place such focus on treating the skin on their face and ignore the décolleté in their skin care regimen especially the use of sun protection. Neglecting this prominent region leads to mismatched skin appearance.
Ageing skin on the décolleté is associated with a range of cosmetic concerns from vertical wrinkling, actinic bronzing (permanently bronzed skin), age spots or splotchy pigmentation due to dilated blood vessels and capillaries; all leading to an overall uneven tone. Sun damage is the most profound factor in development of ageing of the décolleté resulting in fine textural lines scattered over the surface.
