We regularly take measures to protect the skin on our face by applying sunscreen daily and moisturizing, but unfortunately, the skin on our chest is just as prone to daily sun damage and often gets neglected. Years of sun exposure plus the loss of collagen that accompanies age add up to fine lines, wrinkles, and lax skin on the chest that can make you appear older than you truly are. The board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology specialize in treating the signs of aging on the chest with injectable dermal fillers.
Dermal Fillers for Chest Wrinkles
As we age, it is common to become self-conscious about wearing V-neck tops, button-down blouses, or anything else that shows off the chest because the chest, like our face and hands, is known for giving away our age. Dermal fillers can fill in lost volume on the chest to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, help minimize the appearance of skin laxity, and rejuvenate the skin of the chest to take years off of your appearance.
Depending on your unique case, the dermatologist will determine whether you would benefit most from hyaluronic acid gel filler such as Juvederm or Restylane, a collagen-replacer such as Radiesse, or a poly-L-lactic acid filler like Sculptra. Each patient is different and one of our experienced cosmetic dermatologists will be able to determine which wrinkle treatment is most appropriate for you during your consultation to provide you with your desired result.
Patients with severe skin laxity on the chest may benefit from Ulthera skin tightening in combination with filler injections. Ulthera allows the doctor to target specific areas so he/she can treat sagging areas with the Ulthera and use fillers to fill in deep lines and wrinkles. Discuss the option of combination treatments with the doctor during your consultation.

Dermal Fillers for Chest Wrinkles FAQ
If you are considering treating the visible signs of aging on your chest, but aren’t sure the best route to take, the team of doctors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego has compiled a list of answers to the questions they hear most frequently to help you. Contact our office for more information.
Q: How long do chest filler injections last?
A: The amount of time one experiences optimal results from a filler injection will vary from one patient to the next as each person’s body metabolizes the medication differently. Also, the results vary depending on the type and amount of product used. For instance, hyaluronic acid filler tends to last between 6 and 12 months, whereas Sculptra has been known to last for up to 2 years, but typically requires a few treatment sessions.
Q: How much downtime is required after dermal fillers to the chest?
A: One of the great things about dermal filler injections is that there is no downtime after a procedure. Patients generally return to their normal activities right after their wrinkle treatment session. You may experience some redness, swelling, and/or bruising after treatment, but it should not last more than a few days.
Q: Who should perform filler injections for chest wrinkles?
A: It is imperative that you only seek injectable wrinkle treatments from a highly trained, experienced injector. Our board-certified dermatologists are among the best in the field and have all had extensive training in performing filler injections.
Q: Can I get other cosmetic treatments at the same time?
A: Yes! Our dermatologists commonly treat patients looking for complete rejuvenation by performing injections in the face, neck, and chest during one treatment session. Depending on your desired outcome and wrinkle treatment needs, our doctors can put together a complete rejuvenation treatment plan for you.
Q: How can I prevent chest wrinkles?
A: The best way to prevent wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest is to protect the skin from sun exposure. Apply sunscreen daily and avoid standing in direct sunlight for long periods of time. The dermatologist would be happy to provide you with customized skincare tips during your consultation to help you care for the skin on your chest.
