An active microneedle array and method are provided for penetrating an outer layer of an epidermis. The active microneedle array includes a base having first and second sides. The first side of the base is engageable with the epidermis. A microneedle projects from the first side of the base. The microneedle is moveable between a first initial configuration and a second deformed configuration in response to engagement with the epidermis so as to form a passageway therein.
