DALLAS, July 20 (UPI) -- Facial wrinkles get the lion's share of attention, but a U.S. plastic surgeon says wrinkles in women's breast cleavage can also be remedied.

Dr. Rod Rohrich, chairman of plastic surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, said wrinkle-fighting strategies can work on other areas of the body besides the face.

One such area is breast cleavage -- where wrinkling caused by excessive sun tanning or aging is typically due to loss of subcutaneous fat.

Preventive measures include avoiding sun and applying sunscreen, Rohrich said.

"However, for those already affected, plastic surgeons can often successfully treat damage with a wrinkle-fighting combination of Botox and diluted Sculptura," Rohrich said in a statement.

Sculptura is a cosmetic injection containing poly-L-lactic acid, a long-lasting filler approved for cosmetic use facial rejuvenation.

The in-office procedure typically takes about 15 minutes, but may require two treatments about four weeks apart.

"Patients love the results and sometimes combine that with a series of chemical peels that help address skin pigmentation changes," Rohrich said.
