Dr Oz discussed cleavage wrinkles and how to get rid of them. He also suggested the use of a harness bra and prevention retinol cream to prevent cleavage wrinkles. Many people might not realize this, but cleavage wrinkles are one of those things that instantly give away our age. In this segment, Dr Oz straightened out this wrinkly mess and helped out a very concerned audience member who was suffering from this very problem.
Dr Oz was joined by an expert in this area, dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman. Dr Jaliman said that women get cleavage wrinkles due to a breakdown of collagen and elastogen tissue. This tissue breakdown occurs because of sun damage, and also around age forty. Dr Oz used a computer illustration to show the impact of sun exposure (as the rays penetrate the skin, you lose key lose key structural elements, such as the collagen and elastogen). Dr Oz further described that as the infrastructure begins to fall apart, the creases below the skin become deeper, and then cleavage wrinkles begin to surface.
Next, Dr Jaliman stated that your sleep position could determine whether or not you will get cleavage wrinkles. She said that some people prefer to sleep on their side in the fetal position and that this is especially not good for women with large breasts because the breasts begin to rub up against each other, increasing the skin between the breasts and causing deep wrinkles.
Dr Oz advised his audience volunteer to sleep on her back rather than her side. However, if she preferred to sleep on her side, Dr Oz and Dr. Jaliman suggested that she could use a pillow bra. This bra was held on by a harness which keeps the breasts apart. The great part about this bra was that since the breasts were being kept apart, the skin in between could not crease. Dr Jaliman said that many people find this solution effective and that the harness was very safe. The pillow bra can be purchased online for approximately $56.00.
Dr Oz and Dr Jaliman also suggested using an over the counter retinol cream daily. This type of cream would cost approximately $19.99. They stated that the most important part was to remember to use the cream every night and to wear sunscreen every morning.
