A common cosmetic skin treatment that you will come across is microdermabrasion. At Schilling Medical Spa, we offer this effective exfoliating procedure to rejuvenate the skin.

You can think of microdermabrasion as a powerful scrub that can treat a variety of skin problems. In most cases, it won’t take more than an hour for us to complete the treatment.

What Will Go On During a Microdermabrasion Treatment?

We will first ask you to lie down and will then prep your skin for treatment by cleansing it. Microdermabrasion is then performed.

One form involves the use of a diamond-tipped handpiece, which will remove the dead cells from your skin. Another variant is crystal microdermabrasion, where the handpiece will spray fine crystals over your skin to accomplish the same effect.

At the same time, Dr. Schilling will use another tool to suction these skin cells away. The length of time that Dr. Schilling allows this equipment to suction the skin cells and the pressure he applies will determine the depth of the treatment.

What Kind of Skin Problems Can Microdermabrasion Treat?

Microdermabrasion is a safe procedure regardless of your skin color and type. You can opt for this treatment if you face the following problems:
• Stretch marks
• Acne scars and acne
• Enlarged blackheads and pores
• Brown spots, age spots, and hyperpigmentation
• Wrinkles and fine lines
• Skin damage due to extensive sun exposure
• Uneven skin texture and tone
• Dull skin
• Melasma

Why Is Microdermabrasion Popular?

You only need to undergo a single treatment of this procedure to realize why people are in love with it. For starters, microdermabrasion will make your skin look radiant, smooth, and soft. Over time, as you undergo multiple treatments, you will observe that it restores the youthfulness of your skin.

How Many Microdermabrasion Treatments Do You Need?

Dr. Schilling will determine how many treatment sessions you will need in order to bring back the beauty of your skin. Although one treatment is enough to restore the luster of your facial features, you will need more if there are other problems with your skin.

On average, Dr. Schilling will recommend anywhere between five and twelve treatments. Each treatment session will be performed seven to fourteen days apart so that the skin will have time to recover between sessions.

After the Microdermabrasion Treatment

After you undergo microdermabrasion, Dr. Schilling will ask you to use specific moisturizers. The reason for this is that these products help keep the skin healthy. You will also need to use sunscreen to prevent the sun from damaging your skin while it goes through the healing process.
