CIT Roller Frequently Asked Questions
A Cosmetic Revolution: CIT Roller
The Scientia Derma Roller (CIT Roller) is a simple instrument which has the amazing power to naturally trigger elastin and collagen production in the top layers of the skin without damaging it. A CIT Roller can be used by women or men and has several beneficial effects:
- Scar Removal – including acne scar removal
- Stretchmarks Removal
- Anti Ageing Treatment
- Anti Wrinkle Treatment
- Cellulite Removal
- Hair Loss Treatment / Hair Restoration
- Hyper Pigmentation Treatment
QUESTION? What do stretch marks, scars, wrinkles and uneven skin have in common?
ANSWER: A lack of collagen! If your skin would produce more collagen then you wouldn’t get them. Using a CIT Roller offersnature a helping hand by stimulating the production of collagen in your skin, which helps prevent / reverse their formation.
Even the celebrities of Hollywood are using cosmetic microneedling to give their skin a youthful and healthy glow. Quite possibly the most well known celebrities rumoured to have undergone CIT Roller therapy are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
What is the Scientia Derma Roller / Dermaroller?
The Scientia Derma Roller (or Dermaroller) has the features of a precision engineered medical instrument, but with the simplicity necessary to use this in the comfort and privacy of your home. the CIT Roller is based on a simple hand-held roller which has 192 surgical steel microscopic needles that open the pores of the uppermost layer of your skin without damaging it. Your pores return to normal approximately 45 minutes to an hour later, but for that time window, your skin is much better able to absorb and benefit from skincare creams and lotions.
The diagram displayed below shows a magnified image of the roller. The micro needles are only 1 millimetre in length so you get a tickling feeling when the Scientia Derma Roller is used.
Microneedling of the skin is an increasingly routine cosmetic process, but the Scientia Derma Roller is an FDA approved device which is simple enough that anyone can carry it out at home. Despite this, it has similar results to Chemical Peels, Laser Treatment, and Dermabrasion, but it is considerably less invasive and carries only a small proportion of the cost.
So how does the CIT Roller Work?
As you roll the skin roller across your skin, it makes tiny pin point punctures into the dermis – the majority of which are just pushing your pores open temporarily. as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that, in turn, initiate the production of elastin and collagen. The human body reacts to any damage by initiating the healing process, but usually it will only mend as far as it must to keep you in good health – which is totally different to healing to a cosmetic level. By constantly triggering this repair process, you ask your skin to continue regenerating until the process is completed.
Your skin normally accepts that scars, stretchmarks and wrinkles are acceptable, but with a gentle frequent reminder brought about by the CIT Roller your skin is reminded to continue the repair process until your skin has also mended itself on a cosmetic level. This process of skin remodelling can carry on for many weeks beyond each Derma Roller treatment, but visible changes can be seen within 7 to 10 days! Your skin naturally regenerates itself every forty days, so with a little bit of effort, changes can be fast and dramatic.
Cosmetic micro-needling with a CIT Roller can be carried out safely on all colours of skin and all skin types. Other cosmetic processes typically have to avoid delicate areas – such as the backs of the hands, around the eyes and the neck, but with a shorter microneedle length a Scientia Derma Roller can be used on each of these areas. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area aren’t harmed, so there is no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
How do you use a Scientia Derma Roller?
So how quickly does the Scientia Derma Roller achieve results?
As you can imagine, the speed you will get noticeable results is dependent upon what you are treating along with how dramatically your skin must remodel the area in question. This cycle of skin remodelling can go on for several weeks or months after each CIT Roller treatment, but visible improvements can be observed within around 7 days! Your skin naturally renews itself every forty days, so with a bit of effort changes can be dramatic.
Does using a CIT Roller hurt? or make you bleed?
There are two methods of Derma Rolling. The first method requires the application of numbing cream to numb the area, followed by more vigorous use of the CIT Roller once each week. The second alternative, requires the use of the CIT Roller with slight pressure up to as much as 5 times per week. Using the roller lightly gives you a tingling sensation and is not painful – although your face is more sensitive to it than your body.
Neither type of rolling should make you bleed. You perhaps may have a brief reddening of your skin for up to an hour after each session and it can create a feeling a bit like mild sunburn. We advocate the application of sunscreen or sunblock after use. Check out the Derma Roller Instructions page for more details.

Can a Scientia Derma Roller really heal stretchmarks?
Stretch mark treatment is only one of the countless benefits associated with using a Scientia Derma Roller. Stretch marks come about when your skin is forced to stretch stretched suddenly. The surface layer of skin isn’t affected, but the dermis underneath becomes thinner and develops tiny tears. The blood vessels that lie beneath the skin show through, which can give the marks a reddish colour. Later on, when the capillaries contract, the purplish colour can fade to a paler skin tone.
The most common triggers for stretch marks are pregnancy (around 75 to 90% of mothers develop stretch marks during pregnancy), adolescent growth spurts, rapid muscle growth in weight lifters and weightloss or gain in body weight.
The process of removing stretchmarks or the treatment of stretch marks occurs as the Scientia Derma Roller causes the production of fresh collagen fibres and elastin in the skin. The stretch marks gradually fill in, the skin gains thickness, tightens and the elasticity is returned. The speed at which stretch marks removal can be achieved is related to the severity of the marks, but visible changes can be seen in as little as a week with dramatic results in a month or less.
