Active Fx for chest wrinkles

January 23, 2008
Hi Dr. Rivkin,
I have very good skin on my face because I have used sunscreens and a hat for many years. I am 58 but my face looks much younger. However, the same can not be said for my chest. I have alot of vertical wrinkles from not protecting my chest in the sun and the way I sleep sort of hunched over that creates wrinkles also.
I had microdermabrasion done a few years ago and that did absolutely nothing. Do you recommend peels or laser for this delicate area?
Thanks.

hi jitterbug,
i've used lasers on the chest extensively, with very good results. my favorite laser right now for fine lines and wrinkles is the Active Fx. it does a good job of decreasing the wrinkles in about 2 or 3 session without alot of downtime (3 days or so) or pain. The Fraxel is OK, but it takes more sessions and is more painful.

    Hi Doctor,

    I have deep wrinkles between my breasts and then up my chest in a V shape…but the worst are between the boobs..I am 28 years old and I have worn a D cup since I was in the 7th grade. Do you think these wrinkles were caused from being so top heavy? I am getting married in March and I want to start treatment to get this taken care of…what do you recommend? I hear the Active FX leaves a nasty healing process…What do you think?

      yeah, active fx has a recovery time of about 1 week
      i would consider sculptra injections – it takes a few months, but it stimulates collagen growth
      results for these kinds of lines are pretty good
