Pigmentation or solar lentigines on the décolletage, or chest area, is a significant problem for many women in Australia. It can be an area that is overlooked when applying sunscreen and the shade from a hat often doesn’t cover it, leaving your skin susceptible to sun damage. Solar lentigines, are flat tan, brown or black spots that appear on areas of the skin exposed to the sun and seen more frequently with age.
We see many women who want to improve the appearance of the skin on their chest so that they can start to feel younger and wear the bust line that they want, rather than feeling self-conscious or worrying about trying to cover their pigmentation with concealer or foundation.
WHAT CAUSES SOLAR LENTIGINES?
Solar lentigines, or age spots, are caused by ultraviolet radiation; sun damage, including prolonged exposure, sunburn and solariums. This skin condition is more common for people with skin type III and below (lighter skin types).
When sun damage occurs, pigment is deposited as a response to injury, in the same way that a scar is an injury response to a cut. The pigment collects in areas ‘injured’ by the sun.
If left untreated, solar lentigines are likely to persist indefinitely.
