Even those of us who take meticulous care of our skin will, over the years, see damaged tissue appear along with the early signs of aging. Environmental factors, such as smoking and sun exposure, can result in skin damage. Genetics and the normal aging process, coupled with trauma from acne scarring or stretch marks can rob skin of its smooth, glowing appearance. Here at VLS we offer a cutting-edge treatment known as Microneedling, which stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, reestablishing collagen and elastin production, dramatically improving the appearance without downtime or surgery.



Sometimes referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), microneedling is a unique, minimally invasive technique that rejuvenates the skin. By creating tiny micro-injuries in the tissue, microneedling encourages the natural healing process. As the building blocks of healthy, strong skin are increased, tissue becomes smoother, tighter, and more lifted. Fine lines, dark spots, and scarring are reduced, and sometimes eliminated. The result is glowing, luminous skin. Microneedling is safe and effective for almost any area, including the face, neck, arms, back, and hands.

Vanity Lab Skintique performs its medical microneedling treatments using the CITPen, from trusted Herbal Skin Solutions. Containing a set of tiny needles, which can be adjusted to a varying depth of .25 to 2.5 mm, each microneedling treatment is completely customizable, offering more consistent results than seen with traditional dermal rollers. As the CITPen gently glides across the skin, using a small applicator, the skin’s natural barrier function has been crossed, a unique blend of topical ointments or creams are added to the treatment process, getting the hydrating products to the deepest layers of tissue, providing optimal results. In one to two weeks, patients will see fresher, tighter, more beautiful skin. Skin improvements will continue to show over a total of 4 weeks.

Prior to scheduling your medical microneedling appointment, a New Client Facial will be required if not already a current client. At this time, your Master Esthetician will perform a skin evaluation and discuss your aesthetic goals. The CITPen treatment process will be explained, including the pros and cons of microneedling. If the CITPen is right for you, a personalized treatment plan will be created, including any additional treatments that are recommended for optimal results.
