Medical microneedling: Indications for a new dual-purpose device

The recently introduced Exceed medical microneedling system (Candela), which is a mechanical device, offers a high technology option for natural repair and restoration of skin. It is the first such device to gain clearance from the FDA for use in both the treatment of facial wrinkles, as well as for treatment to improve the appearance of facial acne scars. Its designation as a Class II device is no small consideration.

The Exceed™ medical microneedling system blends power, precision, and control to deliver clinically proven results for treatment of facial wrinkles and facial acne scars.
