What is the Scientia Derma Roller / CIT Roller?

The Scientia Derma Roller (or CIT Roller) is a precision engineered medical instrument, with the simplicity necessary to use this in the comfort of your own home. the Microneedle Roller is based upon a simple hand held roller with 192 surgical steel micro needles which can part the pores of the top layer of the skin without damaging it. Your pores close again approximately an hour later, but for that time, your skin is much better able to absorb and benefit from vitamin rich creams and lotions.

The diagram displayed below shows a magnified image of the roller. The microneedles are only one millimetre long so it gives you a tickling feeling when the Scientia Derma Roller is used.

Micro-needling of the skin is becoming a far more popular cosmetic process, but the Scientia Derma Roller is an FDA approved device which is user-friendly enough that anyone can carry it out at home. In fact, it has equivalent results to Chemical Peels, Laser Treatment, and Dermabrasion, but it is much less invasive and is only a small proportion of the cost.

Exactly how does the Microneedle Roller Work?

As you roll the Dermaroller across your skin, it makes pin point punctures into the dermis – the majority of which are simply temporarily opening your pores. Your skin perceives this as damage, which causes the release of growth factors that trigger the production of elastin and collagen. Your skin reacts to any damage or injury by initiating the healing process, but in general it will only heal as far as it has to to keep you in good health – which is totally different to healing to a cosmetic level. By frequently initiating this healing process, you ask your skin to keep repairing until the process is complete.

Your skin normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are fine, but with a gentle frequent reminder triggered by the Microneedle Roller your skin is coaxed into continuing the repair process until the skin has also repaired itself on a cosmetic level. This process of skin remodelling can carry on for weeks after each Skin Roller session, but noticeable changes may be experienced within a week or two! Your skin naturally regenerates itself every 40 days, so if you persevere, the changes can be fast and dramatic.

Cosmetic microneedling with a Microneedle Roller can be carried out safely on all types of skin and all colours of skin. Other cosmetic processes typically need to avoid delicate areas – for example the backs of the hands, around the eyes and the neck, but with a lower microneedle size 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 is no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

How do you use a Scientia Derma Roller?

The Scientia Derma Roller process is very straight forward and can be done at home. Take a look at our Microneedle Roller Instructions page for additional details.

So how quick does the Scientia Derma Roller give results?

As you can imagine, the rate you will see noticeable results depends on what you are treating and how dramatically your skin must remodel the affected area. This cycle of skin remodelling can go on for many weeks after each Microneedle Roller session, but noticeable results may be seen within around 7 days! Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a few sessions changes can be dramatic and fast.
