Is there a solution for lines on the chest?

Hi, I have vertical lines on my chest from sleeping on my side. My question is how to prevent this from continuing on and how to fix what has been caused from sleeping like that in the past. Thanks so much! karen

Okay so I have to do a bit of guessing here.  I’m guessing you’re over 40 and have some sun damage on your chest.  Without seeing you, it’s a bit tough.  You’ll need to have a good cosmetic dermatologist look at you.  (Okay, I promise to update and add more names to our dermatologist recommendations by region soon!)  Sometimes a few drops of Botox in them will help.  Sometimes more extensive laser work is needed either with multiple Fraxels or 1 or 2 fractionated carbon dioxide treatments – for example the SmartXide DOT would be good.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
