Improve skin quality on the neck and chest

As we age, there is a progressive decrease in skin elasticity causing fine lines and “crepiness”. This may become especially noticeable on certain areas of the body such as the neck and chest.

Often the focus with aging is on the face, yet the neck and chest are areas where the skin is thinner and has fewer oil and sweat glands. This can contribute to a loose appearance. In addition, the neck and chest often get as much sun exposure as the face, potentially contributing to pigmentation damage and redness due to telangiectasias — small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin.

There are a number of non-surgical options to improve the texture and quality of the skin on the neck and chest, available through Kamloops Skin Solutions.

Topical treatments such as Retinol and glycolic acid have been documented in scientific trials to promote exfoliation and renewal of skin cells. This improves the health and overall appearance of the skin.

Non-ablative laser “toning” and “resurfacing” use a variety of technologies that may be applied individually or in combination. At Kamloops Skin Solutions, these include:

Laser Genesis – This fast, effective, 30-minute treatment reduces fine lines and skin laxity with no downtime or discomfort. Optimal results are achieved with six treatments. 

Fraxel ® – Gold standard and a leader in fractionated laser technology for resurfacing, this safe, dual wavelength treatment targets pigmentation, including melasma, in the upper levels of skin and stimulates collagen growth in deeper levels. A series of five treatments completely resurfaces the skin. 

Excel V – Dual laser technology, which targets “redness” due to vascular abnormalities and pigmented lesions.

Dermal Fillers – Similar to treatment of the hands, Radiesse offers immediate, non surgical correction of volume loss, crepiness, fine lines and wrinkles. The dermal filler cushions and hydrates the connective tissue to maintain smoothness of skin and gives a volumizing effect. Over time, it’s also been documented to stimulate collagen production in the treated areas.

Thermage – This treatment utilizes radio-frequency to target collagen deep within the dermis. It tightens existing collagen and induces new collagen production. Results are progressive and most noticeable at 6 months after treatment.

Botox – Injected along the jawline (to redefine the jaw), and into the platysmal bands to smooth the neck.

With many non-surgical options available at Kamloops Skin Solutions, it is most important to consult with our experienced team to determine the best treatment based on patients’ individual preferences and health circumstances.
