What is the Scientia Derma Roller / CIT Roller?

The Scientia Derma Roller (or CIT Roller) is a precision engineered medical device, but with the simplicity necessary to use in the comfort and privacy of your home. It is based on a simple hand-held roller with 192 surgical steel microscopic needles which are able to part the pores of the uppermost layer of the skin without damaging it. Your skin pores return to a normal state around one hour later, but during that time, your skin is significantly better able to absorb and benefit from vitamin rich creams and lotions.

The picture displayed below shows a magnified image of the roller. The needles are only 1 millimetre long so all you feel is a tickling feeling when the Scientia Derma Roller is used.

How does the Microneedling Roller Work?

As you roll the Derma Roller across your skin, it makes pin point punctures into the dermis – most of which are just temporarily opening your pores. as damage, which triggers the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. The human body has evolved to react to any injury or damage by initiating the healing process, but generally it will only repair as far as is necessary 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 body to carry on repairing until the process is finished.

The body typically assumes that stretch marks, scars and wrinkles are fine, but with the gentle frequent reminder triggered by the Microneedling Roller your body is reminded to continue the healing process until the skin has also mended itself on a cosmetic level. This mechanism of skin remodelling can carry on for literally months beyond each Dermaroller treatment, but visible results may be experienced within 7 to 10 days! The skin naturally renews itself every forty days, so if you persevere, the changes can be dramatic and fast.

Cosmetic micro needling with the Microneedling Roller can be done safely on all types of skin and all skin colours. Other cosmetic processes typically need to avoid delicate areas – like the backs of the hands, around the eyes and the neck, but with a shorter needle size the Microneedling Roller can be used on all of these zones. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area of the skin are not damaged, so there’s no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
