Fillers - relastayne etc for chest wrinkles(10 Posts)
Will try (!) to keep this brief
Does anyone have recent experience of having these done and any recommendations for clinics in London?
Following an accident a couple of years ago, I now have to sleep on my side, back pain will actually wake me up if I roll on to front or back. In that relatively brief period of time, my chest wrinkles have become really awful – and not even vertical, some of them are almost horizontal! I’m 40 with a chest that looks about 60. It was completely unlined when I had the accident first as I was habitually a front sleeper.
It’s not sun damage, I am hugely careful about that. My neck is also wrinkle free, but the really deep wrinkles are quite high up to the wishbone. It’s so weird.
Any advice on this would be gratefully received. I have tried every potion going and feel now if it’s better to spend a one off large amount and then maybe top ups each year, that might be better.
I’m also wondering what the worst is that can happen if it goes wrong or if my body really hates whatever filler is used – I will of course ask that in consultations though. I have never even thought about any kind of cosmetic procedure before so I thought I’d post here for advice. I can go to a central or north London clinic.
Thanks for any help you can give. I have a couple of night shifts so please bear with me if you reply and then don’t hear from me for a bit. Thanks.
Have you tried the special night time bra?
Think its just nightbra.com
Have you tried intra dermal needling? Or fraxel lazering?
Thanks for replies
I have very sensitive skin so suspect laser a bad idea and wouldn't want to risk it, I thought a filler would be safer and they can be dissolved now as well I think?
I have made a consultation appointment for filler but really interested to hear of any experiences.
PS not sure I understand the needling thing
Is it about collagen stimulation? Really i need the wrinkles treated, then I guess a maintenance regime?
I don't know anything about filler but these are, apparently, the thing for afterwards.
I can't really help as I've never had fillers in my chest but have had them a few times in my checks. I've always been very happy with the results and never had to consider the reversing treatment. I think fillers can either be quite thin and fill a particular deep wrinkle or plump up a bigger area like the back of hands or chest area. Lots of different brands with different properties. I think it will be quite expensive for a large area like your chest. So sorry not much help but just wanted to reassure you that you'll no doubt be happy with the results.
Thanks fir the replies and the pad thing, looks good
I'm probably making it sound worse than it is
It is a few very deep wrinkles with good skin around it so I thought fillers for those shpuld solve it, it's the area you'd see in a scoop neck but mostly the upper outer points of the scoop
So not the usual cleavage wrinkles all bunched up
So a weird one
Good to know others have been pleased
Thanks very much
I have had my consult today so thought I'd post an update in case it's useful to anyone
I mentioned in my posts that the lines were not typical décolletage lines and that's key
Essentially they can't help, they said the amount of filler needed would be crazy as its several fine lines that seem to originate from higher up
All kinds of alternate treatment were dismissed due to the fragility of my skin
Good news is when I walked in, she looked at me and said "why are you worrying about those, you have to get quite close to see them anyway".
I think it's good that I went in order to know there's no options but now I have to concentrate on getting over myself!
I have started to wonder how many women are wearing chunky necklaces or scarves summer for this reason though!
Thanks to all who answered.
