How to Prevent Chest Wrinkles?

Chest Wrinkles Be Gone! Unique and Natural Ways to Get Rid of Chest Wrinkles

In this article:


As skincare influencer Susan Yara says,

“Your skincare should start from your nipples up!”.

During the aging process, your body slows the natural production of collagen, inevitably leading to wrinkles and less skin elasticity.

Your chest region is especially vulnerable to wrinkles due to your breasts pulling the skin downward. Similarly, to the sensitive skin on your face, your chest is often exposed to ultraviolet rays that can cause damage leading to long-term wrinkling.

The chest is just one of many essential areas on your skin that are likely to be missed during your anti-wrinkle skincare routine. Unless you’ve spent sufficient time exploring anti-wrinkle treatments or around your aesthetician these areas might not seem as pertinent.

Investing in specifically designed products, like chest pads and patches, to remove wrinkles will ensure that the region is protected from aging. The sooner you begin using recommend anti-wrinkle products, the less likely you’ll be to seek more intensive treatments to remove wrinkles later on in your life. 

As most people who take their anti-wrinkle beauty routine seriously know, you can probably tell someone’s age by looking at more than just their face, their cleavage will probably give their age away as well.

So, if you’ve been feeling a little uncomfortable regarding your existing décolleté wrinkles or just want to know how to prevent or remove surface and deep wrinkles in the future, then consider looking into some of these recommended treatments.


What Are the Main Causes of Chest Wrinkles?

With all of the anti-wrinkle treatments we apply to our faces, it’s often easy to neglect the skin on our bosom. In truth, our chests can display signs of aging as prominently as our faces. The first step to remove wrinkles is to identify the cause. And we’ve uncovered the main causes for you. 


The Natural Aging Process

Celebrity, Heidi Klum says, "I don't think of getting older as looking better or worse; it's just different. You change, and that's okay." If the sands of time continue to turn for Heidi, who are we to be spared!

Unsightly décolleté wrinkles are caused by the same major factor that leads to wrinkles on your face and the rest of the body, simply put, age. The natural aging process causes a slowed production of elastin and collagen, which leads to more noticeable lines and a loss of the skin’s firmness.


Sun Exposure

While aging is the leading internal cause of décolleté wrinkles, the leading external factor remains the sun. Harmful UV rays cause the formation of free radicals within your skin, which leads to damaged elastin fibers within the skin, and contribute to cleavage wrinkles.



As we age naturally our skin also slows down the production of its natural oils. One of these oils, namely sebum, helps to hydrate the skin. Without natural oils like sebum, dryness can occur. When your decolletage is dry, it appears more wrinkled.

The nicotine contained in cigarettes causes blood vessels to narrow in the outermost layers of your skin. This leads to impaired blood flow to your skin. With less blood flow, your cleavage won’t receive as much oxygen and essential nutrients, such as vitamin A. So, if you’re a smoker it’s time to remove an unhealthy habit from your life and replace it with a healthier anti-aging habit!


Sleeping Habits

Don’t sleep on cleavage wrinkles! Most people are completely unaware of the silent cause of cleavage wrinkles, sleep. Sleep lines are the result of repeating the same sleeping position each night over almost a lifetime. Sleeping on your side in particular causes wrinkles. While you’re young these wrinkles are often temporary and the collagen and elastin in your skin help to put everything back just where you left it, but as time goes on sleep lines become more permanent. 


Best Treatments to Remove Cleavage & Chest Wrinkles


Carbon dioxide lasers are particularly popular for the treatment of cleavage wrinkles that occur as a result of sun damage. Another popular anti-wrinkle treatment is the YAG Laser. This procedure can resurface the skin and can also effectively remove surface wrinkles.

Regardless of which options you and your doctor decide on as a treatment plan, you’ll likely require anywhere between two to six sessions in order to achieve your desired results.

It’s also important to note that laser treatments alone won’t manage sagging or excess skin, but are usually considered effective to remove surface wrinkles. 


Micro Fat Grafting

Micro Fat Grafting is a good option if you’re looking to move some unwanted fat from your abdomen, thighs, or arms and build a more youthful bosom.

Fat transfer can be a complicated and costly option. You’ll also be required to undergo anesthesia, which can lead to complications. Expect to take around 10 days off work with full recovery taking place over a few weeks. 


Silicone Patches

Another recommended and non-invasive chest wrinkle treatment you might want to give a try are silicone anti-wrinkle patches

Recommended by celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and Cindy Crawford, these patches are typically made with 100% medical-grade silicone and are designed to fight chest wrinkles.

The silicone patches are able to draw hydration into a generally dry region of the body such as the chest. Uniquely designed anti-wrinkle patches like Oia’s can remove chest wrinkles through continued use and prevent further wrinkles from appearing. 

Using anti-wrinkle silicone patches is easy and can also be used similarly for your face. Simply apply the patch before bed and let them work while you sleep.



Chemical Peels

A chemical peel treatment is often flaunted as one of the best ways to remove decolletage wrinkles. These treatments make use of acidic chemicals to remove the wrinkled outermost layer of the skin and reveal fresh skin underneath.

The downside to this treatment is that most people require three or four peels over a period of several weeks in order to achieve the desired results. Chemical peels produce the best results when treating sagging skin and severe chest wrinkles.



Injectable chest wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful appearance at a fraction of the cost when compared to surgical options. Most injectables will fill wrinkles within an hour and results can be enjoyed for up to two years. 

Injectable wrinkle fillers remove the lines with one of several substances. As a result, cleavage wrinkles can temporarily disappear.

The main downside of wrinkle fillers is that they aren’t permanent options. 

Depending on which filler your aesthetician recommends, results can last anywhere between six months and two years and are not a long-term anti-wrinkle solution.


Simple Anti-Wrinkle Habits to Prevent further Chest Wrinkles

Chest wrinkles are a problem, regardless of your age, but it’s never too late to change old habits. 


Sunscreen & Shade

The sun’s ultraviolet rays can damage your skin within 15 minutes of exposure.

Reduce the risk of damage to your skin by staying in the shade. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen, every day, with an SPF of 15 or higher to your chest area before going outside. This includes rainy or clear weather because UV rays never take a day off and your anti-wrinkle regimen shouldn’t either. 


Find the Right Fit

It’s a statistic that’s hard to believe but the truth is that 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra. Ill-fitting bras provide poor support and can leave your breasts defenseless against the pull of gravity, or smashed together which leads to chest wrinkles and creases. 


Sweet Dreams

As good as you might think you are at it, you could be sleeping incorrectly. Your skin needs between 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night to look its best.

Sleeping on your back as opposed to your side can also go a long way in preventing chest wrinkles.

If you’re simply unable to fall asleep or continue to sleep in this position, against all efforts, we recommend the use of anti-wrinkle silicone patches to help prevent creasing on your chest. Blue.

Unique & Natural Care

Maybe you think you’ve heard it all and want to try something a little different.

Whether you opt for the extraordinary or listen to the wise words of mother nature, we recommend you tread lightly and be sure of any potential allergies or side effects when trying these alternative anti-wrinkle remedies.


Only the Brave

It seems a mainstay of medieval medicine is making a bold return, in the form of leech therapy.

If you’re adventurous enough to seek out this treatment, which is said to revitalize the body and the mind, expect to book a return trip to more mysterious parts of the world. Those who’ve tried it and this doesn’t include us, have said its value is more than simply scientific. 


Mix & Mask

Try mixing up a mask of hazelnut powder, honey, and here’s the kicker, snail extract powder.

All you’ll need is 1 tablespoon of the hazelnut powder, 1 tablespoon of snail extract with 3 tablespoons of honey. Apply it to your chest and leave it on for around 30 minutes while you read your favorite blog. Then, simply wash it off with warm water and repeat as needed to reduce cleavage lines.


Did You Say Bird Poop?

Another inexplicable remedy is one that curiously includes constructing a paste from bird poop.

It’s left us questioning, who exactly was the first person to try it enough to know that it could work. Well, if you’ve exhausted every other option, and have a few spare nightingales and their defrayals laying about, perhaps you’d like to give it a try and please do let us know how it’s going. 


In Summary

The important thing to remember when it comes to fighting the signs of aging is never to neglect your chest.

When you treat your chest the same as your neck and face, you’ll age evenly in all areas. If it takes you a while for you to get into new habits, like wearing sunscreen every day, keep a spare in your handbag or at the office, ensuring you're protected at all times is going to be key in your anti-wrinkle routine. 


Remember, one of the biggest signs of age is a perfectly maintained face paired with chest wrinkles. By bringing your facial products down to your chest you’ll do yourself a world of good, then stay hydrated and get plenty of rest. 

Here at Oia, we believe that time is our most valuable resource. Adopting efficient and effective skincare habits, like silicone pads or patches, lotions and creams can free up your time for whatever it is you enjoy doing most. 


Stay radiant,
