Does Microdermabrasion Work on the Chest?

Will microdermabrasion successfully remove sun spots, freckles and wrinkles from the chest or decolletage area?

Microdermabrasion polishes the skin and removes the most superficial layer, allowing skin care products or chemical peel treatments to be more effective. While microdermabrasion can give your chest a more healthy appearance, it really does not improve wrinkling on its own and will only help sun spots when used in combination with other treatments such as Ultherapy.

We can also perform fractional laser resurfacing to the area where the laser creates small holes in the skin that cause a significant amount of new collagen deposition, which helps tighten the skin and improve wrinkling.

We get it. The neck, chest and decolletage areas are areas that age the most quickly and neither makeup nor exercise can tighten or smooth the skin here. That’s why we’d recommend microdermabrasion on the chest to be combined with other treatments like the laser treatments mentioned above. It’s the best, nonsurgical way for our patients to see more satisfying results.

Is There Any Downtime to microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure with no downtime, leaving patients with polished and wonderfully refreshed skin around the upper chest area.

How Long Does microdermabrasion Last?

There are very few longer-lasting effects of microdermabrasion and that is why we typically recommend that patients consider getting treatments on a regular basis for best results.

How Many Treatments are Required to See microdermabrasian Results?

Patients can expect their chest to look smoother, more polished and more vibrant immediately following their first treatment. But since microdermabrasion only treats the very superficial layers of the skin, multiple treatments are often necessary.

If you’re getting regular microdermabrasion treatments on the chest every 1 to 2 months, your skin care products will actually work better due to the fact that microdermabrasion allows better penetration of the products.
