QUESTION? What do scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and uneven skin have in common?

ANSWER: A lack of collagen! If your body would produce more collagen then you wouldn’t get them. Using a Scientia Derma Roller offers nature a helping hand by encouraging collagen production in the skin, which helps prevent or reverse their formation.

Even the stars of Hollywood are using cosmetic microneedling to give their skin a smooth and youthful glow.  Probably the most famous celebrities reported to have Derma Roller treatment are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

What is the Scientia Derma Roller?

The Scientia Derma Roller (or skin roller) has the features of a precision engineered medical instrument, with the ease of use necessary to use this in the comfort and privacy of your own home. It is based upon a simple hand held roller which has 192 surgical steel micro-needles which are able to part the pores of the top layer of the skin without damaging it. The pores close again around an hour later, but during that time, your skin is significantly better able to absorb and benefit from skin creams and lotions.

The picture below shows a magnified view of the device. The needles are only 1 millimetre long so all you feel is a tickling sensation when the Scientia DermaRoller is used.

Micro-needling of the skin is an increasingly common cosmetic procedure, but the Scientia Derma Roller is a CE marked medical device which is simple enough that you can perform it yourself at home. In fact, it has similar results to Laser Treatment, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but it is considerably less invasive and carries only a fraction of the cost.

How does the Scientia Derma Roller Work?

As you roll the skin roller over your skin, it creates pin point punctures into the dermis – the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. The human body reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, but usually it will only heal as far as it must to keep you healthy – which is different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering the healing process, you encourage your body to continue healing until the job is finished.

Your body normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are OK, but with the gentle daily reminder caused by the Scientia Derma Roller the body is tricked into continuing the healing process until the body has also healed itself on a cosmetic level. This process of skin remodelling can go on for months after each Derma Roller treatment, but noticeable results can be seen within a week! Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast.

Skin micro-needling with the Scientia Derma Roller may be carried out safely on all types of skin and all skin colours. Other treatments often have to avoid Sensitive areas – such as around the eyes, the neck and the backs of the hands, but the Scientia Derma Roller can be used on all of these areas. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area are not damaged, so there’s no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

How do you use a Scientia Derma Roller?

The Scientia Derma Roller process is very straight forward and can be comfortably done in your own home. Visit our Derma Roller Instructions page for more details.

How fast does the Scientia Derma Roller get results?

Of course, the speed at which you will get results depends on what you are treating and how extensively your body needs to remodel the affected area. This process of skin remodelling can go on for months after each Derma Roller treatment, but noticeable results can be seen within a week! Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast.

Does the skin rolling process hurt? or make you bleed?

There are two methods of Derma Rolling. One version involves the use of cream to numb the area, followed by more aggressive use of the Scientia Derma Roller once per week. The second alternative, involves using the device with slight pressure up to 5 times per week. Using the device gently gives a tickling feeling and is not painful – although your face is more sensitive to it than your body.

Neither method should draw blood. You may find a temporary reddening of the skin for an hour or so after treatment and it can give a sensation similar to mild sunburn. We recommend the use of sunscreen / block after use. Visit our Derma Roller Instructions page for more details.

Derma Rollers for Stretch Marks

Stretch mark removal is just one of the many benefits associated with the use of the Scientia Derma Roller. Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched suddenly. The outer layer of skin isn’t affected, but the dermis becomes thinner and develops tiny tears. The blood vessels that lie under the skin show through, giving the marks a reddish colour. Later, when the blood vessels contract, the purplish colour fades to silvery white.

The most common causes of stretch marks are pregnancy (between 75% and 90% of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy), adolescent growth spurts, rapid muscle growth and weight loss or gain.

The process of removing stretch marks or treating stretch marks happens as the Scientia Derma Roller stimulates the production of new collagen fibres and elastin in the skin. The stretch marks fill in, the skin thickens, tightens and elasticity is restored. The rate at which stretch marks removal can be achieved varies depending on the severity of the case, but noticeable changes can be seen in as little as a week with dramatic results in a month or less.

Please see our Dermaroller Diary page to see sequential photos of the excellent results that can be achieved when using a Derma Roller to treat stretch marks.

What needle length should I choose when selecting my Dermaroller?

The Scientia Derma Roller is available in a choice of different needle sizes, so you should choose the needle size which best suits the condition or body part you are trying to treat.

Derma Roller Needle sizes for home use include 0.5mm, 1mm (1.0mm), 1.5mm and for professional use, we have 2mm (2.0mm) and 2.5mm rollers.  We also have 3 line rollers (made narrow to reach harder to treat areas like around the nose) in 1.0mm and 1.5mm sizes.

Visit our needle size page for more detailed information on how to choose the best needle size for you.

Is this the same as other Skin Rollers?

No. Not all skin rollers are the same. Very few carry the medical CE mark that the Scientia Derma Roller does. Other cheap rollers are often disposable and aren’t made from the same grade of surgical steel (so they can blunt or break), and most concerning is whether or not they are gamma sterilized. The Scientia Derma Roller is made to the highest specification so that it can be reused intensively for 3-6 months. It is manufactured in facilities listed with the FDA and is manufactured / quality controlled in accordance with ISO/CE/FDA standards, with each individual roller receiving a visual inspection under magnification. The product is gamma sterilised according to ISO 11137.
