CIT Roller Frequently Asked Questions
A Skin Care Breakthrough: CIT Roller
The Scientia Derma Roller (CIT Roller) is a fantastic instrument which has the amazing power to naturally bring about collagen and elastin production in the top layers of the skin without damaging it. A CIT Roller can be used by men or women and has several beneficial effects:
- Scar Removal – which includes acne scar treatment
- Stretch Marks Removal
- Anti Aging Treatment
- Anti Wrinkle Treatment
- Cellulite Removal
- Hair Loss Therapy / Hair Restoration
- Hyper Pigmentation Treatment
QUESTION? What do wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and pitted skin have in common?
ANSWER: Insufficient collagen! If your body could create more collagen then you wouldn’t develop them. Occasional use of a CIT Roller offers mothernature a helping hand by encouraging the production of collagen in your skin, which helps prevent / reverse their formation.
Even the stars of Hollywood are using cosmetic micro needling to give them a youthful and healthy glow. Perhaps the most high profile celebrities said to have undergone CIT Roller treatment are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
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 simplicity necessary to use this in the comfort of your home. the CIT Roller is based on a simple hand held roller with 192 surgical steel micro-needles which open the pores of the surface layer of your skin without damaging it. The skin pores return to normal about one hour later, but for that time window, your skin is much better able to absorb and benefit from skincare creams and lotions.
The picture below shows a magnified view of the device. The micro needles are only 1 millimetre long so it gives you a tickling feeling when the Scientia Derma Roller is used.

Microneedling of the skin is becoming a far more popular cosmetic therapy, 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 equivalent results to Chemical Peels, Laser Therapy, and Dermabrasion, but it is considerably less invasive and carries just a small proportion of the cost.
So how does the CIT Roller Work?
As you roll the Dermaroller over your skin, it makes microscopic punctures into the dermis – most of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. Your body perceives this as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Your body has evolved to react to any damage or injury by initiating the healing process, but generally it will only heal as far as is necessary to keep you in good health – which is totally different to healing to a cosmetic level. By constantly initiating this healing process, you ask your body to continue healing until the job is finished.
The body normally accepts that stretch marks, scars and wrinkles are acceptable, but with the gentle weekly reminder triggered by the CIT Roller the body is tricked into continuing the healing process until your skin has also repaired itself on a cosmetic level. This process of skin remodelling can keep working for months beyond each CIT Roller treatment, but noticeable results can be experienced within 7 - 10 days! The skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so if you persevere, changes can be dramatic and fast.
Skin micro-needling with the CIT Roller can be done safely on all skin colours and all types of skin. Other cosmetic processes often need to avoid sensitive areas – like the backs of the hands, around the eyes and the neck, but with a shorter micro needle length the Scientia Derma Roller can be used on all of these areas. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area of the skin are not 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 get results?
Naturally, the speed you will achieve results depends upon what you are trying to treat and how dramatically the body needs to remodel the area in question. This cycle of skin remodelling can go on for many weeks after each Derma Roller treatment, but visible improvements can be seen within a week! The skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a bit of effort changes can be hugely rewarding.
So does the skin rolling process hurt? or can it make you bleed?
There are two ways to use the CIT Roller. One method involves the use of numbing cream to numb the area, which enables more aggressive use of the CIT Roller once per week. The second method, involves using the device with only light pressure up to perhaps 5 times each week. Using the roller gently gives you a tickling feeling and is not painful – but your face is more sensitive to it than your body.
Neither method should make you bleed. You might experience a temporary reddening of your skin for up to 60 minutes after treatment and it can create a feeling a bit like mild sunburn. We advocate the use of sunscreen or sunblock after micro needling. Visit the Derma Roller Instructions page for more details.

Can the Scientia Derma Roller heal stretch marks?
Stretchmark reduction is just one of the numerous benefits associated with the use of the Scientia Derma Roller. Stretch marks come about when your skin is forced to stretch stretched suddenly. The outer layer of skin isn’t affected, but the dermis beneath becomes thinner and develops tiny tears. The capillaries that lie beneath the surface of the skin show through, which gives the stretchmarks a reddish colour. After a while, when the capillaries contract, the purplish colour can fade to silvery white.
The most common triggers for stretchmarks are pregnancy (around 75 to 90% of ladies develop stretch marks as part of their pregnancy), adolescent growth spurts, rapid muscle growth in weight lifters and weight loss or weight gain.
The process of removing stretch marks or treating stretch marks occurs as the Scientia Derma Roller stimulates the production of fresh collagen fibres and elastin in the skin. The stretch marks gradually fill in, the skin thickens, becomes tighter and elasticity is returned. The speed at which stretch marks reduction can be achieved is dependent upon the severity of the case, but visible changes can be detected in as little as a week with dramatic results in a month or less.
Will the CIT Roller eliminate cellulite?

Are these the same as other Skin Rollers?
No. Not all skin rollers are the same. Some don’t have FDA certification that the Scientia Derma Roller does. Alternative cheap rollers are often for one use only and are not made from the same grade of surgical steel (as a result, they could blunt or break), and most concerning is whether they have been gamma sterilized. The Scientia Derma Roller is constructed to the highest specification so that it can be reused intensively for 12 to 24 weeks. It is manufactured / quality controlled in accordance with ISO/CE/FDA standards and gamma sterilised according to ISO 11137.
