Throughout the aging process, you are likely to notice a series of changes in the texture, tone, and elasticity of your skin. You may see new facial wrinkles, dark spots, and bumps. These visible signs of aging are indicative of what’s going on below in the deeper layers of the dermis. Collagen production and cell regeneration slow down, and the skin loses the essential moisture it needs to stay soft and supple.
Exceed Microneedling is a procedure that can help reverse these signs of aging by addressing them at the source. Finally, you can restore your beautiful skin and regain your confidence, all without surgery or significant treatment downtime. Microneedling with the Candela Exceed device offers the highest level of safety and effectiveness possible for this procedure. The Exceed device is the only microneedling procedure with double FDA-clearance. Additionally, it has been designed for exceptional patient comfort and safety, making treatment a breeze.
How Microneedling Works
Like other regenerative skincare procedures, microneedling works by stimulating cell regeneration. It does this with very tiny needles that puncture the skin and stimulate collagen production in the deeper skin layers. This process is known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI), and it is highly effective, because it taps into the body’s own natural healing processes. Following the procedure, the skin will begin to show improvements in tone and texture. You may also see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
