The décolletage is defined as “the exposed area or cleavage of a woman’s chest.” Its desirable appearance is long considered to be a beauty standard, and low-cut necklines have been part and parcel of fashion throughout the ages.

Unfortunately, increased exposure to the sun also makes this area susceptible to photo-aging. The deleterious effects of ultraviolet radiation to the skin are well-documented, and coupled with the concomitant effects of aging, the skin over the décolletage may become wrinkly, or present with a crepe-paper-like appearance.
