Professional microneedling pen repairs and restores aging skin naturally.

We are proud to exclusively introduce Exceed, the first dual-indicated, FDA-cleared microneedling treatment for facial wrinkles and scars. Candela’s newest nonsurgical device encourages natural collagen production that improves skin texture by smoothing acne scars and wrinkles. or the treatment of both facial wrinkles and facial acne scars. Since Exceed offers a controlled depth, comfortable injectable microneedling option without additional energy such as radiofrequency heat, there is minimal downtime compared to Fractora, Morpheus8, Exion Fractional RF or Profound. Exceed is much more controlled and elegant in its needle penetration than traditional skin pens or collagen pens due to automated and variable depth needle lengths, so that precise penetration depths can be selected for more delicate skin areas like around the eyes while deeper treatments can be designed around the cheeks and mouth. Exceed therefore delivers a much more predictable and thorough result than traditional collagen pens or skin pens, so that you can enjoy powerful results with minimal downtime.

You can achieve smooth, firm, younger-looking skin in just four monthly sessions, each less than an hour. Minimal recovery time means an no interruption to your daily routine. You can even wear makeup the next day.
