Exceed Medical Microneedling


Candela’s Exceed™ medical microneedling system is one of the most versatile devices on the market. It is the first FDA-cleared, dual-indicated medical microneedling device offering minimally invasive and clinically proven outcomes. It is quickly replacing dermal rollers and other anti-aging methods to repair and restore aging skin, naturally.

As we age, skin changes and it develops wrinkles. The skin’s structure is affected by:

  • Intrinsic factors like genetic characteristics and hormonal changes
  • Extrinsic factors like environment exposure and lifestyle habits

Microneedling, also known as percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), causes thousands of micro-lesions in the skin (penetrating up to 1.5 mm into the dermis). The resulting minor bleeding (pinpoint bleeding) causes the wound healing cascade. This stimulation is required for new fibers (collagen) to synthesize. Thrombocytes secrete the growth factor PDGF. Neutrophil granulocytes release more growth factors (e.g. TGF-a and TGF-B).

The Exceed system is engineered to deliver persistent power and speed with up to 900 total needle penetrations per second. The patented 6-needle tilting plate within the cartridge, adapts to the skin’s surface and can penetrate up to 1.5mm into the dermis. This provides individualized treatment solutions to repair and restore skin, naturally.

Treatment with the Exceed system is customizable and minimally invasive, suitable for healthy men and women to treat the appearance of facial wrinkles and facial acne scars. In only 4 treatments, 90% of patients saw an improvement in facial wrinkles and 86% of patients showed significant improvement in their facial acne scars. The treatment is well-tolerated with minimal pain, discomfort or downtime, all in under an hour.
