PCI Roller FAQ

A Cosmetic Revolution: PCI Roller

The Scientia Derma Roller (PCI Roller) is a hand-held device which can naturally trigger elastin and collagen production in the skin without damaging it. A PCI Roller may be used by women or men and has multiple beneficial effects:

QUESTION? What do scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and uneven skin have in common?

ANSWER: Insufficient collagen! If your skin could produce more collagen then you wouldn’t develop them. Using a PCI Roller gives mothernature a helping hand by stimulating collagen production in the skin, which will help prevent / reverse their formation.

Even the famous faces of Hollywood are using cosmetic microneedle therapy to give their skin a smooth and youthful glow. Probably the most well known celebrities said to have undergone PCI Roller therapy are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

What is the Scientia Derma Roller / Dermal Roller?

The Scientia Derma Roller (or Dermal Roller) is a precision engineered medical instrument, with the ease of use necessary to use this in the comfort and privacy of your own home. It is based upon a simple hand held roller which has 192 surgical steel micro needles which part the pores of the top layer of the skin without damaging it. Your skin pores return to a normal state about an hour later, but for that time, your skin is much better able to absorb and benefit from skincare creams and lotions.

The photo displayed below shows a close-up image of the PCI Roller. The microneedles are just 1 millimetre in length so all you feel is a tickling sensation when the Scientia Derma Roller is used.

Micro-needling of the skin is an increasingly common cosmetic procedure, but the Scientia Derma Roller is an FDA approved product which is simple enough that you can carry it out at home. In fact, it has similar results to Laser Treatment, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but it is a lot less invasive and carries just a small part of the cost.

Exactly how does the PCI Roller Work?

As you roll the skin roller over your skin, it makes tiny pin point punctures into the dermis – the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. Your skin perceives this as damage, which triggers the release of growth factors that, in turn, trigger the production of elastin and collagen. The human body reacts to any damage or injury by initiating the healing process, but usually it will just heal as far as it has to to keep you in good health – which is completely different to healing to a cosmetic level. By frequently triggering this repair mechanism, you prompt your skin to continue repairing until the job is done.

Your skin generally accepts that stretchmarks, scars and wrinkles are fine, but with a gentle daily reminder caused by the PCI Roller your skin is reminded to continue the repair process until the body has also repaired itself on a cosmetic level. This mechanism of skin remodelling can keep working for many weeks beyond each Skin Roller treatment, but detectable results can be seen within 7 – 10 days! Your skin naturally renews itself every forty days, so with a little bit of effort, the changes can be fast and dramatic.

Cosmetic micro needling with a PCI Roller may 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 size a Scientia Derma Roller can be used on any of these areas. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area of the skin aren’t damaged, so there’s no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.

How do you use a Scientia Derma Roller?

The Scientia Derma Roller process is simple and can be done in your own home. Check out our PCI Roller Instructions page for further details.

How soon does the Scientia Derma Roller get results?

As you can imagine, the rate at which you will get visible results is dependent upon what you are trying to treat and how dramatically your skin needs to remodel the area in question. This process of skin remodelling can go on for many weeks after each Derma Roller treatment, but visible improvements may be observed within 7 to 10 days! Your skin automatically renews itself every forty days, so with a little perseverance changes can be dramatic and fast.

Does the skin rolling process hurt? or make you bleed?

There are two ways to use your PCI Roller. One version involves the use of numbing cream to numb the area, followed by more vigorous use of the Scientia Derma Roller can be achieved with regular treatment with a PCI Roller. Cellulite treatment may be carried out up to five times per week with the Scientia Derma Roller on the hips, thighs, legs, buttocks (bottom), arms and stomach (belly).

Will the PCI Roller fix hairloss / alopecia?

Limiting hairloss and alopecia is an area which many people ask about. The Scientia Derma Roller is a hairloss product which gets great results. In a recent trial, over a 12 week period, men who used a PCI Roller experienced an increase in hair growth and an average eighty percent decrease in hairloss. The hair regrowth and restoration process has been demonstrated to help with alopecia, balding, bald spots, thinning hair, receding hairlines and more conditions besides.

Is this 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 budget rollers are often disposable and aren’t made from the same grade of surgical steel (as a result, they could blunt or break), and most concerning is if they are gamma sterilized. The PCI Roller is made to the highest specification so that it can be reused intensively for 3-6 months. It is manufactured / quality controlled in accordance with ISO/CE/FDA standards and gamma sterilised according to ISO 11137.
