Drug-Aware Ltd, the company behind the tremendously popular Scientia Derma Roller, has launched a new beauty device called the Scientia Derma Stamp – an at-home cosmetic device used for removing scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and cellulite.
Cosmetic microneedling has been used in various forms for over 50 years, since Doctor Pistor discovered that the skin can be stimulated to greatly increase its levels of collagen using microneedles as thin as a human hair and as short as half a millimetre. Such a procedure has been proven to get results equivalent to (if not superior to) chemical peels, micro dermabrasion and laser resurfacing but without the hefty price tag, down time or trauma to the skin.
The only reason your skin gets scars, wrinkles or stretch marks is that it cannot produce enough collagen. So the discovery that a simple hand-held roller can trigger up to 1000% increase in collagen has not gone unnoticed in the cosmetic and beauty industry.
Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been reported to have undergone Derma Roller sessions in order to maintain their youthful glow. The Scientia Derma Roller brought this process into people’s homes, so that home treatment could be carried out at a fraction of the cost.
The Scientia Derma Stamp is a new variation which takes the best features of the Scientia Derma Roller, but adds a twist. You can literally twist the dial on the handle in order to select what needle length to use. Traditionally, you would need to purchase a derma roller with the correct needle length to treat your particular skin condition. For example, for better absorption of skin creams or for anti-ageing, a 0.5mm roller was ideal. But for light scarring, stretch marks, or deeper wrinkles a 1mm roller would be better. All the way through to a 1.5mm roller for deep stretch marks, deep acne scars or burn scars. With the Scientia Derma Stamp, one single device can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, by simply adjusting the needle length.
The UK-based firm is no stranger to providing market leading beauty devices, such as the Cleane Acne Therapy Device, and as such, the Scientia Derma Stamp is set to become another solid addition to their range.
Christopher Evans, the Technical Director of Drug-Aware Ltd told us “Because the stamp is applied directly to the skin, the needles penetrate the pores of the skin head-on and are not rotated into place like they are with a roller. This minimises the sensation of microneedling. Equally, with the new three facet needle profile, the needles themselves are designed to be pain free, yet still give the very best results. This really is the next generation of microneedling products and helps to keep us at the cutting-edge of beauty therapy devices”.
