Microneedling is a popular cosmetic skin care treatment that can improve skin and reduce fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. It can also eliminate scarring from acne, burns or surgery, reduce visible hyperpigmentation and treat mild skin laxity. It is often combined with other cosmetic skin rejuvenation treatments to help patients reach their aesthetic and health results. Dr. Eric Cerrati performs microneedling procedures at both his South Jordan and Salt Lake City offices.
This safe, minimally invasive procedure slightly damages the skin by pricking it with tiny needles to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. The treatment is also often combined with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to promote faster healing and optimized skin repair. Dr. Cerrati can explain more about the effects of microneedling treatments and how they, alone or in combination with other treatments, can help you achieve the results you desire.

Modern microneedling procedures use advanced techniques and equipment that allow for adjustable needle lengths and application for a more personalized treatment. Dr. Cerrati can adjust the device to effectively treat different skin tones, textures and conditions. Sometimes more than one microneedling treatment is needed. They are often scheduled 4-6 weeks apart to allow time for healing and collagen formation.
Microneedling is a great option for patients with darker skin types that cannot be easily treated with lasers or deeper chemical peels, due to trouble with scarring and hyperpigmentation. Dr. Cerrati can explain more about microneedling procedures and their effects, as well as other procedures he may recommend, in a confidential consultation at his office.
