Chest Combination Treatment with Sculptra, Radiesse, Intense Pulsed Light and Ulthera (Wrinkle Treatment with Breast Rejuvenation)
It may come as a surprise that chest wrinkles commonly develop due to aging but the accumulated effects of time, gravity, sleeping on your side and sun exposure conspire to make preventing chest wrinkles very difficult. And for women who have minor breast ptosis (sag), avoiding wrinkles can be particularly challenging.
The board-certified dermatologists at San Diego’s Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are known for their innovative skin rejuvenation solutions, including a unique method of chest wrinkle and breast rejuvenation: a chest combination treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkly skin and improves minor breast ptosis.
With a precisely administered combination of Sculptra, Radiesse, and Ultherapy, patients can experience both skin and breast rejuvenation at our San Diego dermatology facility.
What Causes Chest Wrinkles?
The thin, delicate skin on the chest is susceptible to wrinkling because it loses moisture, collagen, and elastin more quickly than in areas of the body where the skin is thicker. The chest area (décolletage) is also exposed to the sun more often than other areas, which can increase the risk of developing wrinkles and loose, sagging skin.
But that’s not all; other habits also contribute to chest wrinkles, including:
- Insufficient hydration
- Overexposure to the sun
- Unsupportive, poorly-fitting bras
- Sleeping on your side
What are the Stages of Breast Ptosis?
Breast ptosis occurs in various stages. When most of the tissue below the areolas is still visible and the areolas themselves are level with the breast crease, this is considered mild ptosis. A breast rejuvenation therapy (or a combination therapy that also addresses chest wrinkles) can effectively treat mild ptosis.
Cases of moderate to significant breast ptosis are based on areola position vis-à-vis the breast crease and the amount of breast tissue still visible under the areolas.
Radiesse and Sculptra Chest Wrinkle Treatment
The loss of collagen and elastin in the chest skin over time can lead to a loss of luster, structure, and smoothness. As a consequence, people often change how they dress or even how they feel about their appearance.
A chest combination treatment with Radiesse and/or Sculptra is safe, effective, and speedy. It provides skin rejuvenation by replenishing the skin with more volume.
The combination chest wrinkle treatment helps revitalize collagen production and increases elastin levels for firmer, tighter skin that’s also resilient, smooth, and healthy-looking.
Calcium-based Radiesse replaces lost dermal volume, and triggers collagen production to revitalize the skin. The injectable procedure normally takes a few minutes, yet the effects are immediate and gradually improve over time, lasting up to 2 years. The use of ultra fine needles also means little to no downtime, and the potential side effects are minor, including temporary swelling, redness, and/or numbness around the treatment site(s).
Made from poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra is also effective at replacing lost collagen in the skin. After 2-3 treatments over the course of 3-6 months, the skin’s support structure is reinforced for softer, more natural-looking fullness. The possible side effects include temporary swelling and/or bruising, but the results look natural and often last more than two years.
When combined, Sculptra and Radiesse result in a chest with stronger, more supple skin that appears healthy and youthful looking.

Ultherapy and Radiesse and/or Sculptra Combination Therapy Rejuvenates Minor Breast Ptosis
Many people have the misconception that breast rejuvenation involves invasive surgery with incisions, scars, and painful recovery. While it’s true that surgery is a viable choice for dramatic breast rejuvenation or enhancement, not all women need or want to take such drastic measures.
For minor breast ptosis due to lax skin, a combination of Radiesse and/or Sculptra and Ultherapy can improve breast lift and perkiness. Cosmetic Laser Dermatology patients have experienced excellent results from this innovative combination breast rejuvenation therapy at our San Diego practice.
Non-invasive Ultherapy has properties that tighten skin and build collagen, which complement Radiesse very well. Ultherapy is a non-surgical breast rejuvenation technique that improves the size, shape, and perkiness of the breasts. Our skin experts are highly skilled at providing skin tightening treatments with Ultherapy, and our very own Dr. Sabrina Fabi is renowned as one of the world’s leading authorities on this treatment, having led Cosmetic Laser Dermatology’s study on the Ulthera butt lift.
The effects of this combination look natural as the tightness and lift continue to improve for the next several months, generally lasting for almost 2 years.
Ultherapy helps reinforce the breast rejuvenation properties of Radiesse by using micro-focused ultrasound to tighten and lift lax skin. The deep non-invasive stimulation of collagen allows the body’s natural healing properties to tighten and firm the skin. By strengthening the skin’s structural support, skin rejuvenation results in subtly improved breast ptosis and appearance.
A combination Ultherapy/Radiesse/Sculptra treatment involves virtually no downtime and side effects such as temporary redness, itching, and/or swelling are minimized so there should be little interruption for patients with busy schedules.
Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
The addition of an intense pulsed light treatment performed 2-3 times over 3 months will not only rejuvenate the skin surface by virtually eliminating brown marks and red blood vessels. The treatment also further enhances wrinkle reduction.
This treatment is usually performed at the same time as Radiesse/Sculptra/Ulthera. The only down-time is the flaking off of the sun-damaged skin. Drs. Goldman and Wu have published papers on this technique.
Who Can Benefit from a Chest Combination Treatment?
A combination chest wrinkle treatment and breast rejuvenation therapy consisting of Radiesse, Sculptra, and Ultherapy is innovative, unique, safe, and effective. However, it does not replace breast implants and it is not intended for small-breasted women who want to transform their figures or for individuals with moderate to severe breast ptosis.
For women with minor breast ptosis due to skin laxity or for women satisfied with their breast size but not the slight loss of perkiness, this chest combination treatment may be what is needed to again be comfortable wearing swimsuits or low-cut halter tops and blouses.
