Microdermabrasion New Orleans

microdermabrasionDo you ever look in the mirror and feel like you face looks dull? If you answered yes, you may want to consider microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion was first developed in Italy in 1985. Millions of treatments have been performed nationwide.

Studies indicate that the epidermal turnover rate slows from 30-50% between our thirties and eighties. In young adults, the Stratum Corneum transit time was as quick as 20 days, whereas in older adults it stretched to 30 days or more. The slowdown in the cell cycle accounts for dull, rough, and lackluster skin. This non-invasive treatment gently exfoliates your skin. After a series of treatments, your complexion can appear smoother, brighter, and more even in color.


Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical facial resurfacing technique performed in a series of treatments. IT mechanically exfoliates the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vacuums them away, leaving your skin feeling softer and smoother. The way it works is that when you remove the outermost layers of dead skin cells, the body quickly replaces the lost skin cells with new, healthy ones. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment with little to no recovery time. Best of all, you can have it done during your lunch hour and go straight back to work!


Microdermabrasion has been shown to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, shallow acne scars, though results may vary from person to person. Those who suffer from enlarged pores will be pleased to know microdermabrasion can help minimize pores and is great for unclogging them. Removing dead skin through microdermabrasion can aid in the penetration of skincare products by up to 50% and with a more even surface to work with, it allows makeup to go on more smoothly.

Many people choose microdermabrasion over chemical peels and laser treatments because it is generally safer and more cost-effective. The procedure may be a little uncomfortable but shouldn’t hurt (though skin can feel a little tender afterwards). Your aesthetician should be checking in with you about your comfort level during the treatment.

Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow, which increases the nutrition delivered to skin cells. This improves cell production, which improves skin’s elasticity and texture. While home dermabrasion kits are available, they act more like a scrub and will not have the same results you will get from a microdermabrasion at Shay’s Health and Beauty Spa. A series of 6-10 treatments are usually recommended for optimum results, with 2 weeks in between for skin to recover.
