Micro Needle Roller Frequently Asked Questions
A Beauty Revolution: Micro Needle Roller
The Scientia Derma Roller (Micro Needle Roller) is a breakthrough device which has the incredible ability to naturally stimulate elastin and collagen production in the skin without causing any damage. A Micro Needle Roller may be used by men or women and has multiple beneficial effects:
- Scar Reduction – which includes acne scar treatment
- Stretchmark Reduction
- Anti Ageing Therapy
- Anti Wrinkle Therapy
- Cellulite Reduction
- Hair Loss Therapy / Hair Regrowth
- Hyper Pigmentation Treatment
QUESTION? What do scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and pitted skin have in common?
ANSWER: Insufficient collagen! If your skin could create more collagen then you wouldn’t develop them. Frequent use of a Micro Needle Roller offersnature a helping hand by triggering collagen production in the skin, which will help reverse or prevent their formation.
Even the celebrities of Hollywood are using cosmetic microneedle therapy to give their skin a smooth and youthful glow. Probably the most high profile celebrities said to have undergone Micro Needle Roller treatment are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
What is the Scientia Derma Roller / Skin Roller?
The Scientia Derma Roller (or Skin Roller) has the features of a precision engineered medical device, with the ease of use necessary to use this in the comfort of your own home. the Micro Needle Roller is based upon a simple hand held roller with 192 surgical steel microneedles which can part the pores of the uppermost layer of the skin without damaging it. The pores return to a normal state approximately 45 minutes to an hour later, but for that time window, your skin is much better able to absorb and benefit from skin care creams and lotions.
The picture shown below shows a close-up image of the roller. The needles are only one millimetre long so you get a tickling sensation when the Scientia Derma Roller is used.
Micro needling of the skin is an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment, but the Scientia Derma Roller is an FDA approved device which is simple enough that you can operate it at home. Despite this, it has similar results to Chemical Peels, Laser Therapy, and Dermabrasion, but it is significantly less invasive and carries just a fraction of the cost.
Exactly how does the Micro Needle Roller Work?
As you roll the Derma Roller over your skin, it creates microscopic punctures into the dermis – most of which are just pushing your pores open temporarily. as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that, in turn, trigger the production of elastin and collagen. Your skin has evolved to react to any injury or damage by initiating the healing process, but typically it will only heal as far as it has to to keep you healthy – which is completely different to healing to a cosmetic level. By frequently initiating this repair mechanism, you ask your skin to continue healing until the process is complete.
The skin typically accepts that scars, stretchmarks and wrinkles are fine, but with a gentle daily reminder caused by the Micro Needle Roller the skin is reminded to continue the healing process until the body has also mended itself on a cosmetic level. This process of skin remodelling can continue for months after each Derma Roller session, however, detectable changes can be seen within a week or two! The skin naturally renews itself every forty days, so if you persevere, the changes can be fast and dramatic.
Cosmetic microneedling with a Micro Needle Roller may be carried out safely on all skin types and all colours of skin. Other treatments typically need to avoid delicate areas – such as the backs of the hands, around the eyes and the neck, but with a lower needle length a Scientia Derma Roller can be used on each of these areas. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area of the skin aren’t damaged, so there’s no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
So How do you use a Scientia Derma Roller?
So how fast does the Scientia Derma Roller give results?
As you would imagine, the speed you will achieve visible results is dependent on what you are trying to treat along with how dramatically the skin must remodel the area in question. The cycle of skin remodelling has been known to continue for months after each Derma Roller session, but noticeable results may be seen within a week! The skin automatically renews itself every forty days, so with a little stimulation changes can be hugely rewarding.
Does the skin rolling process hurt? or can it make you bleed?
There are two ways to use the Micro Needle Roller. The first version involves the application of cream to numb the area, followed by more forceful use of the Micro Needle Roller once per week. The second method, involves the use of the device with slight force up to as much as 5 times per week. Using the Micro Needle Roller gently gives a tickling sensation and is not painful – but your face is more sensitive to it than your body.
Neither of these two methods should draw blood. You could find a temporary reddening of the skin for up to an hour after treatment and it may create a sensation similar to mild sunburn. We would advise the application of sunscreen or sunblock after micro needling. Take a look at our Micro Needle Roller Instructions page for more information.

Can a Scientia Micro Needle Roller remove stretchmarks?
Stretch mark removal is just one of the many benefits associated with using a Scientia Micro Needle Roller. Stretch marks occur when the skin is forced to stretch stretched rapidly. The outermost layer of skin isn’t affected, but the dermis beneath becomes thinner and develops small tears. The capillaries that lie under the skin show through, giving the stretch marks a reddish colour. After a while, when the capillaries constrict, the purplish colour can fade to silvery white.
The most common triggers for stretch marks are pregnancy (around 75 to 90% of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy), adolescent growth spurts, swift muscle growth in weight lifters and weight loss or gain in body weight.
The process of reducing stretchmarks or the treatment of stretch marks occurs as the Scientia Micro Needle Roller triggers the production of fresh collagen fibres and elastin in the skin. The stretch marks gradually fill in, the skin thickens, tightens and the elasticity is returned. The speed at which stretch marks reduction can be achieved is dependent upon the severity of the marks, but visible changes can be observed in as little as a week with dramatic results in a month or less.
