The term microneedling may strike fear into the heart of some individuals, curiosity in others and bring a knowing smile to another group altogether. If you have an extreme fear or dislike of needles or injections, hold your opinion about the procedure until you read this post. For the curious person, you are about to have some of your questions answered. And if you have that knowing smile, share your experience with others. Microneedling works wonders on your skin.

Scary? Not Scary

It sounds scary – a bundle of tiny needles puncturing your skin, more like torture than a beauty treatment. However, when these tiny needles prick that first layer of skin, it begins a process that leads to smoother, glowing and healthier-looking skin. Microneedling boosts collagen production, which rejuvenates your skin.

Collagen is one of the important components that gives your skin its firmness and strength. When collagen is increased in skin that is losing volume, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines diminishes. This process can be used to treat scarring, such as that from bad acne and large pores.

Microneedling Facts

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure. It generates new collagen in the skin, which changes the texture and tone of the skin to be smoother and firmer. This is generally a safe procedure for most individuals. Those who use certain acne medications may be advised not to undergo microneedling. It is also not advised for women who are pregnant.

This procedure does not require downtime, although you should wait a day before using your regular skin care products. You can expect redness and a little irritation in the treated areas for a few days following the procedure.

Microneedling takes up to two hours from start to finish. More than one session is needed to achieve the best results. Over-the-counter microneedling kits do not give the superior results you will receive from a professional.

You can have smoother, brighter skin and reduce the lines and wrinkles of aging with microneedling. Call Dr. Cerrati today to schedule your consultation appointment to learn more about this safe and effective method of skin care treatment.

Choosing Dr. Cerrati to perform my rhinoplasty was the best decision I ever made! I had consultations with many other surgeons and he was who I felt most comfortable with. He really listened to what I wanted and made it look very natural. He fixed my deviated septum and performed some cosmetic work. My recovery was such an easy process! I had 0 pain and minimal bruising. I love the outcome of my nose, both functionally and structurally. I highly recommend Dr. Cerrati, you wont regret it.

Working with Dr. Cerrati and his assistant Hailey, has been the most wonderful experience! It is clear Dr. Cerrati cares about helping you achieve your dreams and Hailey is the sweetest, most helpful & awesome gal ever! They both spent so much time listening and understanding exactly what I wanted done with my nose and forehead and spent time making sure I was cared for and heard. I love my results and am so happy that I chose to go with this team. I plan to continue using them for my lip and cheek injection and suggesting them to all my friends moving forward- I am soo happy I found them!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cerrati based on my experience with both him and his office staff. He is very professional and a perfectionist When it comes to his patients results. I researched several surgeons, and ultimately decided on Dr. Cerrati based on his reviews and before and after pictures. One month post rhinoplasty, I am no longer self conscious. I’m loving my results ( and I’m very picky) . If anyone is worried , rest assured you Will love Dr. Cerrati and his staff!

Dr. Cerrati is AMAZING at what he does! He is very professional, personable, and always makes sure you are comfortable during your procedures. After seeing 3 other physicians and having procedures done to help open my nasal passages, Dr. Cerrati came up with a different solution that actually worked. He is very meticulous and precise with all of his work and my facial injections were nearly painless. He does great work, I highly recommend!

Dr. Cerrati, Nani and the entire staff made my day today! I put my wallet on the hood of my car and drove off with it there on my way to my appointment this morning. By the time I realized what I had done my wallet was long gone. I ended up being 20 minutes late for my appointment (which I absolutely hate) and the staff was nothing but understanding and so so nice when I told them what happened. It was my first experience in the office but absolutely not my last! Not only am I impressed with the way I was treated but they did an amazing job!! My appointment was short and sweet with a job well done and I couldn't help but leave with happy tears in my eyes. Kind people are the best!!!

Dr. Cerrati is absolutely amazing! I was so happy with my fillers that I received. Definitely will be returning to him again! I trust him and recommended him 100% to all my family and friends. He always does his best to make sure his patients come out with the best possible outcome!
