Dermo Roller Frequently Asked Questions
A Skin Care Revolution: Dermo Roller
The Scientia Derma Roller (Dermo Roller) is an incredible tool which can naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin without damaging it. A Dermo Roller can be used by men or women and has a number of beneficial effects:
- Scar Treatment – including acne scar removal
- Stretchmark Treatment
- Anti Ageing Treatment
- Anti Wrinkle Treatment
- Cellulite Treatment
- Hair Loss Treatment / Hair Restoration
- Hyper Pigmentation Treatment
QUESTION? What do stretch marks, scars, wrinkles and uneven skin have in common?
ANSWER: Insufficient collagen! If your skin would produce more collagen then you wouldn’t get them. Occasional use of a Dermo Roller offersnature a helping hand by triggering the production of collagen in the skin, which will help reverse / prevent their formation.
Even the famous faces of Hollywood are using cosmetic microneedling to give them a youthful and healthy glow. Maybe the most well known showbiz personalities reported to have undergone Dermo Roller treatment are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
What is the Scientia Derma Roller / Micro Needle Roller?
The Scientia Derma Roller (or Micro Needle Roller) is a precision engineered medical instrument, but with the ease of use necessary to use in the privacy of your own home. It is based upon a simple hand-held roller which has 192 surgical steel microscopic needles which open the pores of the surface layer of the skin without damaging it. Your pores close again about 45 minutes to an hour later, but for that time window, your skin is much better able to absorb and benefit from vitamin rich creams and lotions.
The photograph displayed below shows a close-up view of the device. The needles are only one millimetre long so it gives you a tickling sensation when the Scientia Derma Roller is used.
Microneedling of the skin is becoming an increasingly common cosmetic procedure, but the Scientia Derma Roller is an FDA approved device which is easy enough that anyone can carry it out at home. As a matter of fact, it has comparable results to Laser Treatment, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but it is a whole lot less invasive and is just a fraction of the cost.
So how does the Dermo Roller Give You Better Skin?
As you roll the Dermaroller over your skin, it creates tiny pin point punctures into the dermis – most of which are simply temporarily opening your pores. Your skin perceives this as damage, which triggers off the release of growth factors that initiate the production of collagen and elastin. Your body reacts to any damage or injury by initiating the process of healing, but in general it will only mend as far as is necessary to keep you in good health – which is completely different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering this healing process, you encourage your skin to continue regenerating until the process is done.
Your skin normally assumes that stretch marks, scars and wrinkles are OK, but with a gentle frequent reminder caused by the Dermo Roller your skin is coaxed into continuing the repair process until the skin has also mended itself on a cosmetic level. This process of remodelling can carry on for literally months after each Derma Roller session, however, visible results may be experienced within 7 to 10 days! Your skin naturally regenerates itself every 40 days, so with a little bit of effort, changes can be dramatic and fast.
Skin micro needling with a Dermo Roller can be conducted safely on all types of skin and all skin colours. Other treatments often have to avoid sensitive areas – for example 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 zones. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area aren’t damaged, so there’s no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
So How do you use a Scientia Derma Roller?
So how quick does the Scientia Derma Roller give me results?
As you can imagine, the speed at which you will see results depends upon what you are treating and how dramatically your skin must remodel the affected area. This cycle of skin remodelling often continues for several weeks or months after each Dermo Roller session, but visible improvements may be observed within 7 to 10 days! Your skin automatically renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation changes can be dramatic.
Does using a Dermo Roller hurt? or make you bleed?
There are two methods of Derma Rolling. The first method involves the use of cream to numb the area, followed by more forceful use of the Dermo Roller at most once per week. The second alternative, involves using the Dermo Roller with slight pressure up to 5 times each week. Using the roller lightly gives a tickling feeling and is not painful – however, your facial area is more sensitive to it than your body.
Neither method should draw blood. You perhaps may detect a brief reddening of the skin for up to 60 minutes after rolling and it has been known to give a sensation a bit like mild sunburn. We advocate the use of sunscreen / block after micro needling. Check out our Dermo Roller Instructions page for more information.

Can a Scientia Dermo Roller remove stretch marks?
Stretchmark removal is just one of the countless benefits associated with using a Scientia Dermo Roller. Stretch marks come about when the skin is forced to stretch stretched suddenly. The outer layer of skin isn’t affected, but the dermis underneath becomes thinner and develops tiny tears. The capillaries that lie beneath the skin show through, which can give the marks a reddish colour. After a while, 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 women develop stretch marks at some point during pregnancy), adolescent growth spurts, rapid muscle growth in weight lifters and weight loss or weight gain.
The process of removing stretch marks or the reduction of stretch marks occurs as the Scientia Dermo Roller causes the production of fresh elastin and collagen fibres in the skin. The stretch marks fill in, the skin gains thickness, tightens and elasticity is restored. The speed at which stretch marks removal can be achieved varies depending on the severity of the case, but noticeable changes may be seen in as little as a week with dramatic results in a month or less.
