The Candela Exceed™ medical microneedling device is the first dual-indicated, FDA-cleared medical microneedling system for the treatment of both facial wrinkles and facial acne scar reduction. Exceed is the latest technology that’s quickly replacing dermal rollers and other anti-aging methods on the market, including other microneedling pens. Powered by ultrasonic technology, this is a whole new dimension in skin rejuvenation.
Our goal is to MINIMIZE EPIDERMAL TRAUMA. By using 6 of the sharpest medical grade surgical stainless needles we reduce surface tension. Other devices use more needles which actually push the skin down before they penetrate through. This means that you are creating micro-tears through the stratum corneum (upper layer of the epidermis) causing unnecessary trauma leading to increased post-treatment downtime. We are the only company in microneedling that creates a “medical-grade wound” based on materials used, production methods and quality control standards.
Exceed is a state of the art treatment with the following benefits:
You may be a candidate for Exceed Microneedling if you struggle with wrinkles or acne. Your providers will work with you to determine if Exceed is the best treatment for you.
Exceed microneedling has eleven different speed settings (100 – 150Hz). We administer scar revision and skin rejuvenation treatments differently. These speeds allow us to customize the treatment as much as possible for different types of tissues (scar, burn, sun damage etc). EXCEED is the only device to utilize a dual-layer membrane in the cartridge to make sure no substances are drawn back into the handpiece. Our membrane is the ONLY one proven to guarantee a 0% chance of cross-contamination.
During treatment, we recommend the NEOcomplex Glide Serum. This is a pure 10% non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid with vitamin C & E, copper peptides for wound healing, and proline and lysine to help the newly formed collagen fibrils lay in a more natural horizontal lattice. With ablative fractional laser treatments they actually vaporize a column of tissue. When that column re-heals the collagen can form in a vertical lattice which is not natural. This is a small point but earns some credibility. It comes individually packed in a glass dropper bottle.
The deepest we will ever go into the skin is 2mm, and even 2mm is too far. You’ll rarely go over 1.5mm as EXCEED’s needles penetrate to a more accurate depth than the “pens” on the market. Most common pens, due to their lack of quality manufacturing, are grossly inaccurate. We can achieve the same wound at a 1mm setting as the “pens” can achieve at a 2mm setting.
Patients can expect to see a notable improvement in their wrinkles or acne.
You may experience minimal downtime after your procedure. The average is 24-48 hours of a pink look. If you get more aggressive treatment, then downtime can be longer. Immediately following your treatment, your skin will be bright red like a sunburn, and the people will feel a little warmth and tightness. Over the next couple of days, the skin can feel itchy, of which our Skin Management Experts™ will make recommendations. We recommend an aftercare moisturizer designed for calming redness and soothing the skin. We can usually find one in our current skincare lines.
