In recent years more and more people have been undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures to improve the way they look. One of the most common (and longest established) surgeries is rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty surgery, or as it is more commonly known, a nose job, involves the reshaping of the cartilage of the nose to make the nose, in most cases, smaller and a different shape. There are many other things that rhinoplasty surgery can do for the nose as well, such as narrowing (or widening) the nostrils, changing the angle of the nose and removing any bumps or other problems that affect the nose.
With regards to cosmetic surgery (commonly known as plastic surgery) the majority of procedures are performed on women. However, when it comes to rhinoplasty surgery the split between male and female patients is fairly equal, with almost as many men getting rhinoplasty surgeries as women. The rhinoplasty surgery itself is fairly simple, and the overall operation time is short when compared with some other cosmetic surgeries. The recovery time is relatively short too, with most people simply needing between one and three weeks to completely recover – although the scars that form may take a little longer to go (please see our scar removal page). However for the two months following the procedure, patients need to be wary of bumping or injuring their nose as it will continue to be sensitive.
With rhinoplasty, plastic surgeons are able to completely reshape the patient’s nose and change the entire look and profile of that person’s face. For people who want only a subtle change, doctors can make very minor adjustments to improve that person’s appearance without making it too obvious. This is one of the reasons why rhinoplasty is such a popular procedure, as quite often it is possible to improve the look of your face without it being obvious that you have had a nose job. Whatever type of change you are looking for, doctors are now able to give you the nose you want in a relatively short amount of time. Rhinoplasty surgery can either be done on its own or it can be combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures.
When it comes to undergoing rhinoplasty surgery, patients should be aware of the fact that although it is a relatively simple, routine procedure as far as cosmetic surgery goes, it is still a serious operation. This is why it is important for potential patients to make sure they ask as many questions as they need to before agreeing to the surgery, to make sure they are comfortable with their decision. Generally speaking, there are very few complications associated with rhinoplasty surgery in comparison with other surgical procedures. Each year more and more people are redefining their faces and giving themselves the look that they’ve always wanted with surgery. This is why it is one of the most common types of plastic surgeries in the world today.
As with virtually any surgical procedure, there will probably be some scars left after the operation. Scar removal can be helped by using a derma roller. For more information about this and more, please visit our faq page.
A Skin Care Innovation: Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller
The Scientia Derma Roller (Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller) is a revolutionary instrument which can naturally bring about elastin and collagen production in the skin without damaging it. A Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller can be used by both men and women and has several beneficial effects:
QUESTION? What do scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and uneven skin have in common?
ANSWER: A lack of collagen! If your body could create more collagen then you wouldn’t get them. Occasional use of a Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller offersnature a helping hand by triggering the production of collagen in the skin, which helps reverse / prevent their formation.
Even the famous faces of Hollywood are using cosmetic micro needling to give them a smooth and youthful glow. Quite possibly the most famous showbiz personalities said to have undergone Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller therapy are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
What is the Scientia Derma Roller / Micro Needle Roller?
The Scientia Derma Roller (or Micro Needle Roller) has the features of a precision engineered medical device, but with the ease of use necessary to use in the comfort and privacy of your own home. It is based upon a simple hand held roller which has 192 surgical steel microneedles that can open 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 for that time, your skin is significantly better able to absorb and benefit from skin care creams and lotions.
The photo below shows a magnified image of the roller. The micro needles are only 1 millimetre in length so it gives you a tickling sensation when the Scientia Derma Roller is used.
Micro-needling of the skin is an increasingly popular cosmetic therapy, but the Scientia Derma Roller is an FDA approved product which is user-friendly enough that anyone can operate it at home. As a matter of fact, it has equivalent results to Laser Therapy, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but it is a lot less invasive and is only a small proportion of the cost.
How does the Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller Work?
As you roll the Derma Roller over your skin, it creates pin point punctures into the dermis – the majority of which are simply temporarily opening your pores. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. Your skin is designed to react to any injury or damage by initiating the process of healing, but typically it will only repair as far as it has to to keep you in good health – which is very different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently initiating this repair process, you ask your body to continue healing until the task is done.
Your body typically accepts that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are acceptable, but with the gentle daily reminder triggered by the Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller your body is reminded to continue the healing process until the skin has also repaired itself on a cosmetic level. This process of remodelling can keep working for many weeks beyond each CIT Roller session, but noticeable results can be seen within a week! Your skin naturally regenerates itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation, changes can be dramatic and fast.
Skin micro-needling with the Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller can be done safely on all skin types and all colours of skin. Other cosmetic processes typically need to avoid sensitive areas – such as around the eyes, the neck and the backs of the hands, but with a shorter microneedle length the Scientia Derma Roller can be used on any of these areas. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area aren’t damaged, so there’s no possibility of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
How quick does the Scientia Derma Roller give results?
As you can imagine, the rate you will see visible results is dependent upon what you are treating and how dramatically your body needs to remodel the area in question. The process of skin remodelling often continues for months after each Derma Roller session, but visible results can be observed within a week! Your skin automatically renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation changes can be dramatic.
So does using a Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller hurt? or can it make you bleed?
There are two ways to use your Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller. One version requires the use of numbing cream to numb the area, followed by more forceful use of the Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller once per week. The second alternative, requires the use of the Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller with only light force up to as much as 5 times each week. Using the device gently gives you a tingling feeling and is not painful – but your facial area is more sensitive to it than your body.
Neither method should draw blood. You might experience a temporary reddening of the skin for up to an hour after each session and it can give a sensation a bit like mild sunburn. We recommend the use of sunscreen or sunblock after use. Take a look at the Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller Instructions page for further information.

Can the Scientia Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller reduce stretch marks?
Stretch mark treatment is only one of the many benefits associated with the use of the Scientia Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller. Stretch marks happen when the 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 under the surface of the skin show through, giving the stretch marks a reddish colour. A short time later, when the blood vessels contract, the purplish colour can fade to silvery white.
The most common causes of stretchmarks are pregnancy (around 75 to 90% of women develop stretch marks as part of their pregnancy), growth spurts in teenagers, quick muscle growth in athletes and weightloss or gain.
Feel free to take a look at the Dermaroller Diary page to look at genuine pictures of the astonishing results that can be achieved while using a Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal Roller to treat stretch marks.
Derma RollerNeedle sizes for home use include 0.5mm, 1mm (1.0mm), 1.5mm and for use by professionals, we also have 2mm (2.0mm) and 2.5mm rollers. We also have 3 line rollers (made to be narrow in order to reach harder to treat areas such as around the nose) in 1.0mm and 1.5mm sizes.
No. Not all skin rollers are the same. Some rollers don’t have FDA listing that the Scientia Derma Roller does. Alternative cheaper rollers are often disposable and aren’t made from the same grade of surgical steel (as a result, they can blunt or break), and more importantly is if they have been gamma sterilized. The Rhinoplasty Scarring Removal 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.
