Exceed Microneedling Pen

What is an Exceed Pen Treatment?

The Candela Exceed™ medical microneedling pen is the latest technology that’s quickly replacing dermal rollers and other anti-aging methods on the market.

During an Exceed pen treatment, the device is moved over the skin, creating tiny punctures or micro-channels. These micro-injuries stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, triggering the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for skin rejuvenation and improvement in texture, tone, and elasticity.

The depth and speed of the needles can typically be adjusted by the practitioner to address specific skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, uneven skin tone, and texture irregularities.

Exceed pen treatments are often used to enhance the overall appearance of the skin, improve skin firmness, reduce the appearance of scars (including acne scars), and promote a more youthful complexion.

What to Expect from an Exceed Pen Treatment?

During an Exceed pen session, after discussing your skin concerns and goals in a consultation, your skin will be cleansed, and a numbing cream might be applied. Using fine needles, the practitioner creates controlled micro-injuries to prompt natural healing, enhancing collagen and elastin production. The treatment can be tailored by adjusting needle depth and speed for specific concerns like wrinkles or scars. Mild discomfort may occur, but the numbing cream helps alleviate it. Post-treatment, expect temporary redness and slight swelling, similar to a sunburn, with guidance on skincare routines and sun protection. Recovery usually takes a day or two with potential minor flaking. Several spaced-out sessions might be recommended for optimal results. Following your skincare professional’s advice and care instructions is vital for proper healing and achieving the best outcomes.
