How do I get rid of Chest Wrinkles?

Preventative tips on getting rid of chest wrinklesThis is a question many women ask, and certainly one that has many answers. Over time, the skin between a women’s breast comes together from either sleeping on their side, or from breasts being pushed up and together. Over time this process creates deep creases on your chest. Once the chest has wrinkles, the sun can further damage the area by causing pigmentation and discoloration. According to Dr. Oz and Dr. Jaliman, women do have options on minimizing chest wrinkles, and possibly returning the stressed area to a more youthful and supple appearance. These solutions are as follows –

Solutions to Minimize Chest Wrinkles

1.) Sleeping on your back – The process of sleeping on your back prevents the breasts from rubbing together and causing stress to the chest.
2.) Breast Pillow – For those women that sleep on your side, then it is recommended to use a breast pillow that securely and comfortably fits in between the breasts at night. This way you can minimize the impact. Some women report that their wrinkles have greatly diminished as a result of using a breast pillow. Dr. Oz and Dr. Jaliman recommend the Intima Breast Pillow.
3.) Use a Over-The_Counter Retinol Cream at night – This cream helps reduce the sun damage and appearance of wrinkles on the chest. However, it should be noted that retinol cream should only be used at night as it does interact with the sun.
4.) Sunscreen – Of course, all dermatologists recommend this as a great way to fight sun damange and protect your chest against cleavage wrinkles.

Two Ways to Prevent Chest Wrinkles While Sleeping On Your Side.

How to Prevent Wrinkles from Sleeping On Your Side?Plenty of us ask this question? Does sleeping on your side, your face, or any positon other than your back cause wrinkles? In short, yes! Dr. Jaliman, a prominent New York dermatoligist and author of SKIN RULES states, “The way you sleep does affect wrinkles — that’s why some lines are called sleep lines. If you crunch your face against a pillow you can get them.” The same can go for other areas on your body like your chest. In fact, in a recent Huffington Post article titled, “Does Sleeping On Your Side Cause Wrinkles? Beauty Myth or Not?”, Dr Jaliman recommends ”It’s best to sleep on your back, although most people find this difficult, one way to do this is to put a around your neck and to prop yourself with other pillows all around you so you don’t turn in your sleep.” One thing might be for sure, it might be possible to minimize sleep wrinkles via a satin pillow sheet, or a beauty pillow, but what about effectively dealing with chest wrinkles? We believe that you have two other options that have worked out really well for other women in minimizing chest wrinkles, and preventing further wrinkles form occurring.

As previously stated in other articles, the Intima Breast Pillow, or the Decollete Pad have received great reviews from women, and do in fact help prevent chest wrinkles from sleeping on your side.

Intima Breast Pillow helps minimize chest wrinkles.

Intima Breast Pillow Helps Minimize Cleavage Wrinkles

The Intima Breast Pillow is the  most expensive product so far when it comes to ways to minimize chest wrinkles, but it is also made really really well. Unlike the Decollete Silicone pad, or Kush support, the Intima Breast Pillow utilizes soft straps to hold the breast pillow in place during the night, which we think is a great option. You also don’t have to worry about the adhesive quality like you do on the Decollete Pads, as the Intima breast pillow is made from a high quality synthetic satin like material (Actually 90% nylon / 10% Spandex) and a hypoallergenic filler for the pillow. Simply hand wash your Intima pillow in cold water and air dry when needed.

When we compare the Initma breast pillow against other options, we really like this product because it stays in place and is reusable. With that being said, there were some complaints about adjusting the straps if you are a smaller women, but once you have it in place it is really quite comfortable to use. Overall, after several days of use, this product minimizes the appearance of chest wrinkles, and we feel is a great long term solution to minimize further damage to the chest from sleeping on your side.

How to Use the Straps on the Intima Breast Pillow

Intima Breast Pillow Reduces Chest WrinklesWhat we like about the Intima Breast pillow is the ability to hold the pillow in place during the night from the straps. These straps work just like a bra, and can be adjusted to fit your specific body type. Although, from our research some users have claimed that the adjustment for really small body types can be a challenge, we feel the strap system is the best way to minimize the appearance of chest wrinkles over the long term. We feel that when combined with the Decollete pad, this would be a great system to help minimize and prevent further chest wrinkles.

Pros -

  1. Strap system holds pillow in place
  2. Great long term solution to minimize further chest wrinkles
  3. Appears to be high quality
  4. Adjustable
  5. Reusable and able to hand wash

Cons -

  1. Expensive
  2. Straps might not adjust properly to some body types

How To Reduce the Appearance of Chest Wrinkles? A Review of Decollete Pads.

Decollette Pads Correct Chest Wrinkles

Decollete pads are constructed out of 100% medical grade silicone, and are certainly different from the other products offered (i.e. breast pillows). At first we were a little skeptical of placing a silicone sheet on our chest, but after doing a little research on the benefits of using silicone in hospitals, and reading about positive uses by dermatologists to treat burns, scars, plastic surgery, we decided that this could be a great idea! At the very least, it would be worth a try on our quest to minimize unsightly chest wrinkles.

How Decollete Pads Work?

Chest wrinkles can be attributed to a number of causes. The most obvious include sun exposure, sleeping on your side, from breast implants, push up bras, etc. Once the collagen in the skin breaks down, the vertical lines on the chest tend to linger. From our understanding, the silicone improves the irregular collagen structure and helps bring needed moisture to the surface. Decollete Pads claim silicone treats wrinkles by providing moisture to the skin, improves collagen, which can all result in flattening wrinkles out. In addition, Decollete Pads also claim that prologonged use will help return the chest to a more youthful look by softening fine lines and wrinkles. What’s not to like about that!

We ordered our Decollete pad online and it came to us via UPS in a small box. As we really didn’t know what to expect, the actual package that it comes in is quite small. The package containing the silicone sheet is the size of a 5.5″ x 8.5″ manilla folder. The actual size of the Decollete pad is around 5″ x 5.5″. I took out the silicone sheet from the packaging (but still kept in the protective clear plastic) and took a quick photo next to a pen so that you could get an idea of the size. Overall, not extremely large, but possibly large enough to cover the problem area where chest wrinkles happen.

Silicone Pad for chest wrinkles

Notes on Applying the Décolleté Pad, and sleeping overnight with it. It does work!

Decollette Pads to minimize chest wrinklesApplying the silicone pad to the Décolleté is really easy. There are just a couple instructions to follow on the back of the package that are labeled in step by step format. Upon removing the silicone pad, you want to make sure to keep the clear poly bag that it comes in. Apparently this bag is used to store the pad when not in use and keeps the adhesive quality. I also made sure that my skin was clear of any lotions, oils, or soap as to not disrupt the adhesiveness of the pad. I read that it is important to keep the adhesive quality to silicone, or else it won’t work.

After applying the pad before bed, it took a couple minutes to get used to, especially when it heats up to your body temperature. But after a bit, I had completely forgotten about the Decollete pad, and was able to fall asleep easily. When I woke up the pad was still there, and I actually did notice that it really works! The wrinkles on my chest were smooth, and dramatically reduced. I continued to use it for a couple more nights with even greater success, and can honestly say that silicone does work in reducing chest wrinkles.

 Pros -

  1. Affordable (especially when compared to laser treatments at the dermatologist that can cost upwards of $1,000 a month).
  2. Non-Invasive
  3. Small, compact, and clear.
  4. 100% Medical Grade Silicone
  5. Does minimize the appearance of chest wrinkles

Cons -

  1. A couple nights when I started to sweat, the pad was removed
  2. Maybe slight larger?
  3. Adhesive quality could go away if directions aren’t followed.

Kush Breast Support Helps Minimize Cleavage Wrinkles

Kush Breast Support

This product is another alternative to the Decollete pad and the Intima bra. It is made out of a squishy material that is very similar to a stress ball. The Kush product says that it should be used for women with breast implants, breast feeding, larger breasted women, and women who are looking to minimize cleavage wrinkles. At first glance, this product is a great idea. Lightweight, affordable, made out of quality slip resistant material. It even is pretty anatomically contoured to fit in between a women’s breasts for extra comfort. What we liked about this product at first glance was the fact that you didn’t have to worry about silicone adhesiveness, or straps (like the Intima bra or Decollete pads). However, because it was really just a product you rested/fit in between your breasts, this also became the biggest complaint.

From our research we found that women have a hard time keeping the Kush in place during the night. It was suggested that you may need to wear a sports bra, or t-shirt to keep it in place, and since every women is different we provided it a lower rating than the other products. Even though the Decollete pad had similar, but less occurrences of falling off during the night, we found the silicone from the pad to actually reduce the appearance of wrinkles on day one, which is why the Decollete chest wrinkle pad is rated higher than the Kush Support.

Pros -

  1. Affordable and Lightweight
  2. Very Durable
  3. Does offer support for the breasts which may be useful for women who are breastfeeding

Cons -

  1. Hard to keep in place unless you use a shirt or support bra
  2. The other options seem to be better at minimizing chest wrinkles
