A microdermabrasion facial in New Orleans is a facial that uses fine crystals to gently remove the outer, tough layer of skin to reveal smoother, newer skin underneath while also stimulating the production of collagen. Microdermabrasion can be used for a variety of skin concerns including but not limited to dull or dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, large pores, acne, scarring, stretch marks, melasma, sun damage, dull looking skin, and more. These types of facials are popular because they are minimally invasive with little downtime after the procedure, which means you can get a microdermabrasion facial in New Orleans and go get lunch or dinner with friends afterward.
The diamond-tip handpiece for microdermabrasion facials uses a diamond-tipped tool to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells and has a mechanism to suction the dead cells up at the same time. This tool is typically used for more sensitive areas of the face, such as around the eyes. The depth of exfoliation depends on the applied pressure of the tool and the strength of the suction.
Crystal microdermabrasion in New Orleans is similar to the diamond-tip handpiece. The crystal microdermabrasion handpiece gently sprays fine crystals on the skin that rub away the dead skin cells and then suctions them up. There are different crystals that can be used, like aluminum oxide and sodium bicarbonate.
Hydradermabrasion is new to microdermabrasion facials. The skin is exfoliated without the use of crystals and various beneficial serums are used for infusion into the skin.
Results from microdermabrasion are visible immediately after the procedure. Some skin issues will require multiple appointments however, depending on the severity and type of skin problem.
