A beautiful décolleté is a real eye-catcher. Not only in swimwear and lingerie it attracts all eyes. Also with blouses, dresses and cut-out tops you can skillfully put your décolleté in the limelight. When you are young, the neckline looks seductive. But with the natural aging process, a change sets in here as well: The skin becomes more wrinkled and thinner as the hyaluronic acid content decreases and the collagen fibers in the subcutaneous fatty tissue gradually recede. We can reverse this effect – without any surgical intervention! Tightening the décolleté without surgery? Yes, it is possible! In this blog post we reveal how.
The skin texture of the décolleté
The skin in the upper part of the breast is very thin. It contains less subcutaneous fatty tissue and sebaceous glands than other parts of the body. As a result, the skin on the décolleté is more prone to wrinkles and furrows, as well as pigmentation disorders. In this area, moisture can only be stored to a very limited extent. For this reason, wrinkles on the décolleté are already favored by nature.
In addition, the collagen structure decreases over the years. In addition, the body produces less cushioning and volume-creating hyaluronic acid. Due to a lack of water storage, the skin loses elasticity.
If you also expose your décolleté often and for a long time to unprotected sunlight, this puts additional strain on the sensitive skin.
Tightening the décolleté without surgery: simple anti-aging tips
As on the face and other parts of the body, the skin aging process on the décolleté cannot be stopped. But there are ways and means to delay the signs of aging. Pay attention to a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet. Drink enough and, at best, refrain from smoking.
Other anti-aging methods for the décolleté are:
You can help your body keep your décolleté firm with targeted exercises. The classic exercise is the push-up. It is also easy to perform and effective to press the palms of your hands against each other. The “butterfly” can also be helpful. To do this, take a filled water bottle or a dumbbell in each hand. Now bend your knees slightly and place your feet about hip-width apart. Keep your upper body straight. Raise your elbows to shoulder height at right angles. Now slowly bring the bottles together in the middle from this position. Another addition to the workout is the “wood chop.” Again, take a filled water bottle or your dumbbells to help you. Hold the weight over your head. Knees again slightly bent, feet hip-width apart, keep your torso straight. Now imagine you are a wood chopper. With force, swing the weight down over your head and back up.
Nourish the skin on your décolleté and use décolleté creams with plenty of moisture that are specially formulated for the delicate skin in your chest area. Alternatively, you can also use your anti-aging face cream. The active ingredients contained in it are also suitable for cleavage care. When shopping for your cosmetics, make sure that they contain water-binding, plumping active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. Such ingredients are good for the skin – they make it look firmer on the spot.
It also makes sense to exfoliate the skin from time to time. This way you remove impurities and dead skin cells. In addition, you activate the microcirculation with a peeling. The care applied afterwards – preferably a nourishing mask – can then be better absorbed by your skin.
The chest area is a so-called sun street. This is an area that is often directly exposed to the sun’s rays due to its anatomically almost horizontal orientation. Therefore, the décolleté is susceptible to damage that can be caused by the sun’s UV light. These include pigmentation marks or wrinkles. Therefore, daily sun protection is also mandatory to keep the décolleté beautiful for longer.

Tightening the décolleté without surgery – with device-assisted therapies
In our practice for dermatology and aesthetics in Munich, we offer various device-based therapies with which we can optimize the skin on your décolleté. You can get a younger look with:
With the radiofrequency therapy Attiva we can stimulate the production of collagen in the treated areas by means of heat. As you know, collagen keeps the skin of the décolleté firm and wrinkle-free. It is also possible for us to lift the bust with Attiva.
Btl exilis elite™
We can also stimulate your body to produce new collagen with BTL Exilis Elite™. In this therapy, this is done through a combination of radio/ultrasound.
We can also treat premature aging, sun damage, age spots and fine lines on the décolleté with a chemical peel. This allows us to initiate renewing processes in your skin.
Fractional co2 laser (eco2)
With laser treatment, we remove the superficial layers of the skin and heat the surrounding tissue. This allows us to bring about a significant tightening of the décolleté.
Ipl max g laser treatment
We can remove disturbing veins and pigment spots in the area of the décolleté with the so-called “flash lamp” – the IPL Max G laser. At the same time, this procedure can reduce wrinkles and light-induced damage to your skin (photorenuvation). Another advantage is that the elastic fibers of your connective tissue are strengthened with the IPL Max G laser.
For skin tightening, skin rejuvenation and special intensive décolleté care, the innovative laser treatment Lasemd is suitable. We combine the therapy with the use of highly effective cosmeceuticals such as the VC ampoule with vitamin C, the VA ampoule with vitamin A or retinol, and the RS ampoule with resveratrol.
This is a dermal filler that can restore lost volume and replace it in a long-lasting way. Radiesse simultaneously improves skin quality and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin under your skin. This can improve your skin’s texture, even in depth, over the long term. Radiesse hyperdilute is a highly diluted form of dermal filler, which we can inject flatly under the skin of your entire décolleté.
We can stimulate the formation of collagen with the special ultrasound treatment Ultherapy. This makes the skin on your décolleté firmer and tighter again. A natural lifting effect is created.
