Why use the Exceed™ Medical Microneedling Device?
Candela’s Exceed™ medical microneedling system is one of the most versatile devices on the market. It is the first FDAcleared, dual-indicated medical microneedling device offering minimally invasive and clinically proven outcomes. Microneedling, also known as percutaneous collagen induction (PCI) or collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive skin perfecting procedure. Microneedles create tiny punctures in the skin which promotes a collagenstimulating healing process. This collagen induction improves the skin by reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles and facial acne scars.

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.

Microneedling – AquaGold | 60 min
AQUAGOLD fine touch is a new technology that provides more balanced, natural-looking results.

These painlessly penetrate the epidermis, allowing the doctor to deliver Botox or a different biologic like hyaluronic acid at consistent depths, just below the epidermis. Minimal Downtime. Recommended monthly.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) | 60 min

The PRP is derived from your own blood so there is virtually no risk of allergic reactions or rejection. Used in conjunction with microneedling which is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to repair itself through new collagen formation by delivering microscopic channels in the skin. Improves texture, pores, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars and hyperpigmentation. All skin types can benefit from this treatment with minimum downtime any time of the year.
