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.

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!

I had rhinoplasty with Dr. Cerrati. From my initial consultation though my follow ups, Dr. Cerrati listened to me. I got the exact result I had hoped for which was quite subtle. My recovery was way better than I expected. I needed one pain pill and was not in much pain at all. His MA came into the office on Xmas Eve to remove my cast so I could be out and about without a cast. I also had very little bruising. His staff is awesome. Haley was so responsive in helping me to schedule surgery. She actually responded to my email at 6:15 am and answered every inquiry I had. I had a nosebleed unrelated to my surgery and Dr. Cerrati made sure to squeeze me in on one of surgery dates just to make sure everything was okay. He is calm, knowledgeable and skilled. I was completely at ease throughout the process. I researched thoroughly before choosing him. I liked that he is younger with updated techniques and that he specializes in facial surgery. Highly recommend.

I came to see Dr. Cerrati after having a total Thyroidectomy earlier this year. The surgery didn't go as planned and I had to have a few other emergency surgeries right after. The scarring from all the surgeries didn't look very good and I had some tethering underneath that needed to be taken care of. Dr. Cerrati was great about explaining everything that would be done to remove the scar tissue and reclose the skin. I also had lots of anxiety about having another surgery since I had such a bad experience last time. Dr. Cerrati and the staff were very understanding and accommodating about my anxiety. I am very pleased with the way my scar looks now. I am confident that the scar will fade considerably and it will hardly be noticeable. I do feel like there were some communication issues when I would call in but I believe that it was not the doctor's fault and that it was more overall staffing issues. Just make sure you talk to the right people and get the phone numbers for his nurse and then all will go great!
