Before and Afters – Buckingham Signature Chest Rejuvenation Package
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
The providers at the Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery offer chest rejuvenation solutions for individuals in Austin & Sunset Valley, TX. Over the years, the delicate tissue between the neck to the breasts can start to show signs of age. Decades of sun damage can eventually lead to age spots and areas of hyperpigmentation that mottle the skin. Age-related volume loss, weight fluctuations and genetic disposition can cause this skin to become lax, wrinkle and take on a crepey appearance. While most women are primarily concerned about the fine lines and creases on their face, without even knowing it, the tissue on their chest can add years to their appearance.
Chest rejuvenation from Buckingham Center is a unique, specialized set of procedures designed to restore a younger, more attractive chest and décolletage. Using two cutting-edge techniques, Buckingham Center’s providers can quickly restore a smooth, youthful-looking chest without any downtime, scarring, or serious risk for complications. By combining the dermal filler Sculptra with a BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL) treatment, providers can plump chest tissue, smooth wrinkles, lighten sunspots and dark areas on the skin. This combination treatment improves the overall appearance of the chest, décolletage and lower neck.
TYPES OF CHEST REJUVENATION PROCEDURES
During a Moxi treatment, the fractional laser divides the beam into thousands of microscopic zones, which allows the laser to target a fraction of skin at a time. Moxi Laser treatments are ideal for addressing variances in skin tone, pigmentation irregularities, fine lines and uneven skin texture. Furthermore, since the Moxi Laser does not damage the skin all over, and instead creates columns of thermal damage, the skin heals faster than with a traditional laser resurfacing treatment.
Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Sculptra is a safe and effective dermal filler, used to restore the volume loss that often accompanies aging. Made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), Sculptra, is a biocompatible and biodegradable material, providing safe and long-lasting results. Injected immediately below the surface of the skin using a tiny needle, Sculptra encourages the body’s natural production of collagen. Over the following weeks, the skin’s contour and texture will significantly improve. While the benefits of Sculptra will appear gradually, the youthful results can last for up to two years.

Broadband Light Therapy, more commonly called BBL, is a noninvasive technique using Photorejuvenation to improve the quality and appearance of aging skin. BBL can dramatically restore younger-looking skin by reducing the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and broken capillaries. Each BBL treatment is gentle and painless. The provider will use a small handpiece, gently passing over the targeted tissue, emitting a concentrated pulse of light energy. The procedure needs no anesthesia, requires no downtime, and gets patients back to return to their normal schedule immediately after treatment. Best of all, the benefits of BBL will last for years to come.

An in-office treatment, chest rejuvenation sessions at Buckingham Center generally take 45 minutes. Depending on the extent of correction and desired results, patients will require approximately three Sculptra sessions and four BBL treatments, although this may vary. For the best results, each treatment should be spaced from four to six weeks apart.
Chest Rejuvenation requires no incisions and needs no downtime. Most patients are feeling well enough to return to work the same day as their treatment. While complications from the chest rejuvenation techniques are rare, side effects can include bruising, redness and swelling. These can easily be covered for the first few days and will normally resolve over the following seven to ten days. In some cases, dark spots may come to the surface of the skin after a BBL treatment. However, these are temporary as well.
Before scheduling your chest rejuvenation procedure, a confidential consultation with an experienced doctor will be arranged. At this time, the doctor will perform an examination of the skin and chest area. He will review your medical history and current medications, as well as discuss both short-term and long-term aesthetic goals. The provider will share a range of before/after photographs of recent chest rejuvenation patients, allowing for a clear visualization of the expected results. If the chest rejuvenation technique is right for your individual needs, a personalized treatment plan will be created, walking you step-by-step through the process.
