Décolleté wrinkles, or chest wrinkles, can be caused by a number of different factors. The most common of these include natural aging, sun damage, side sleeping, toxins in your environment, and gravity. Luckily, silicone chest pads can help fix all of this.
Wrinkle formation is complex but is primarily driven by diminished hydration and reduced production of collagen within the skin. This diminished hydration and reduced collagen production causes the skin to lose elasticity and firmness and results in unsightly wrinkles. As you age, then, these wrinkles deepen and become more permanent.
There are a number of solutions to treat and prevent chest wrinkles including lotions, chemical peels, laser therapy, injections, and even surgery. But the best solution is often overlooked: the silicone chest pad. In this article, we’ll discuss what they are, what they do, how they do it, the benefits they present, and how to use them.
What Are Silicone Chest Pads?
Silicone chest pads are based on science that doctors, surgeons, and hospitals have used for more than 30 years. During that time, silicone has been a trusted, safe, and effective means to heal and normalize scarred and burned skin. Those same methods have now been applied to the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles.
Each individual pad is composed of pure medical-grade silicone and an ultra-thin coating of adhesive which allows the pad to adhere to the body. The pads are designed to fit all ages and body types and are clinically tested to be hypo-allergenic. The adhesive is also cleared by the Food & Drug Administration for use in medical devices and is rigorously tested to deliver the highest level of safety, performance, and comfort.
What Do Silicone Chest Pads Do?
A single pad is worn on the chest, typically overnight, where it works to restore the natural, youthful beauty of the décolleté. At the same time, the silicone chest pad works to prevent future wrinkles from forming.*
After only one night using a silicone chest pad, the skin shows a marked increase in hydration and photodamage repair and a reduction in roughness and wrinkle depth. In addition to the hydrating effects that silicone chest pads offer, they also help to keep the skin flat while you sleep (known as ‘compression’) which can keep new lines from forming.
How Do Silicone Chest Pads Work?
The effectiveness of the silicone chest pad stems from the way it’s constructed. Silicone and oxygen atoms are cross-linked with hydrogen and carbon atoms to make a silicone polymer. Because of its atomic structure, the silicone polymer does two things:
- It allows oxygen to pass through and lets your skin breathe.
- It locks in moisture.
The combination of these two effects creates what is called a microclimate, or occlusion, between the skin and the silicone polymer pad. It is this unique environment that helps skin heal itself. Moisture is drawn up from lower skin layers to the outside layers (the dermis) and collagen production is encouraged, activated, and normalized. When worn for an extended period of time (e.g., eight hours), the silicone polymer pad encourages the skin to hydrate, plump, and rejuvenate itself. This results in the reduction and prevention of lines and wrinkles.
The Benefits Of Silicone Chest Pads
There are numerous ways to deal with wrinkles, but the silicone chest pad is a nice balance between cost, effectiveness, and invasiveness.
Lotions and creams can be an inexpensive and easy way to treat and prevent wrinkles, but they can take up to two months before you’ll notice a difference.
Chemical peels are fast acting and work well for deeper wrinkles, but the higher-quality processes can cost upwards of $1000.
Laser treatment can leave your skin red and swollen for days and may require multiple treatments.
Injections and surgery, though effective, can be a bit too expensive and invasive for most people’s liking.
Silicone chest pads combine the simplicity and inexpensiveness of lotions and creams with the fast action and lasting effects of chemical peels and laser treatments. Best of all, they don’t require a doctor’s visit, the use of needles, or the recovery period necessary with surgery.
How To Use Silicone Chest Pads
Cleanse the décolleté area down into the cleavage area with a product that contains glycolic and lactic acids. This encourages exfoliation, removes old skin cells, and prepares the skin to repair itself. Be sure to dry the area completely before applying the silicone chest pad.
Adhere the silicone chest pad to the décolleté area beginning just below the collarbone and continuing down through the cleavage area. It should cover the area where you have the most wrinkles.
Sleep! The skin pad works while you’re in bed to moisturize and repair damaged and wrinkled skin. Be sure to remove the silicone skin pad when you wake and replace it on its storage shield. Store the skin pad in a dust-free environment (in its original packaging if possible).
For increased results, after removing the pad in the morning, apply a lotion that contains wrinkle relaxers, hydrators, brighteners, and anti-inflammatories. SiO Décolleté Serum is ideal for this purpose. It is also suggested that if you miss a night with the silicone skin pad, you continue using the lotion because the smoothing, hydrating, and brightening effects accumulate and maximize over time.
Silicone chest pads are the smartest and most effective solution to décolleté wrinkles without the use of needles, doctors, or invasive surgery. Silicone chest pads, like the SiO SkinPad, are clinically tested, dermatologist approved, and allergy tested to be non-irritating, safe, and comfortable. And unlike many of the products on the market these days, silicone chest pads are reusable up to 15 times before they need replacing.
So get the ultimate beauty sleep and bring youth back to your décolleté with the easy-to-use silicone chest pad. Couple that with the cleansing and hydrating regimen from SiO, and you’ll be enjoying a smoother, healthier décolleté in no time.
