Instructions

The Derma Roller is an incredible device which naturally increases the levels of collagen and elastin in your skin. Stretch marks, wrinkles, scars and uneven, pitted skin are all due to a lack of collagen – so by using a DermaRoller to replace the collagen you can help your skin renew itself and repair to a cosmetic level.

Does Derma Rolling really work?

Absolutely! Take a look at our Derma Roller before and after pictures page for photos showing some pretty amazing results. We also have a Derma Roller frequently asked questions page and even a Derma Roller review page so you can read some of the reviews, customer feedback and testimonials we receive. We even have a Dermaroller Diary page which was written by a customer who used it to remove stretch marks.

So what does a Scientia DermaRoller look like?

A Derma Roller is a simple hand held skin roller which has 192 surgical steel micro-needles which are able to part the pores of the top layer of the skin without damaging it. The pores of the skin close again after about an hour, but during that period your skin is able to absorb skin creams and lotions much more efficiently. We even provide vitamin rich treatment cream to ensure your body gets the nutrition it needs.

The photo below shows a magnified view of the roller. The micro-needles on the skin roller rare only 1 millimetre long (we also stock a 0.5mm, 1.0mm, 1.5mm, 2.0mm and 2.5mm device) so all you feel is a tickling sensation when the Derma Roller is used.  (You can visit our needle sizes page for more information on which needle size would suit you best).

Skin micro-needling (otherwise known as CIT or collagen induction therapy) is an increasingly common cosmetic procedure, but the Derma Roller is an FDA approved application which is simple and easy enough to use yourself at home. In fact, it has very similar results to Laser Treatment, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but is considerably less invasive (without any of the skin trauma) and carries only a fraction of the cost.  Even the stars of Hollywood are having Derma Roller treatments to rejuvenate and smooth their skin.  Perhaps the most famous  celebrities reported include Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

How do you use a Derma Roller?

Using a Derma Roller is a very simple process and can be carried out in the comfort of your own home.

How long before I see results from my DermaRoller?

The rate at which you will get results depends on what condition you are treating and how extensively your skin needs to remodel. This process of skin remodelling can continue for literally months after each Derma Roller treatment, but visibly noticeable changes can be seen within a week! Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation, changes can be dramatic and fast.

Can you use a Derma Roller on any part of your body?

Microneedling can be carried out with a Derma Roller on almost any part of the body: the arms, hands, legs, thighs, body, abdomen, neck, face, cheeks, scalp, even around the eye area – such as crows feet and frown lines.

Is the use of a Derma Roller safe?

Of course. Based upon ancient oriental acupuncture techniques, micro-needling has been used for literally hundreds of thousands of procedures with no serious side effects reported. The Derma Roller is FDA approved, and manufactured / quality controlled in accordance with ISO/CE/FDA standards. The product is gamma sterilised according to ISO 11137.

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

No! There are two alternative methods of Derma Rolling. One method involves the use of numbing cream to completely numb the area to be treated, followed by more aggressive use of the Derma Roller once per week. The second alternative, involves using the roller with light pressure up to 5 times per week without numbing cream. Using your roller gently gives a kind of tickling feeling and is not painful – although your face is more sensitive to it than your body. Neither of the methods should draw blood. You may find that there is a temporary reddening of the skin for around an hour after treatment and it can give a sensation similar to mild sunburn. We recommend the use of vitamin rich treatment cream after use, and sunscreen / block if you will be exposed to the sun after treatment.

Derma Roller side effects?

Using your Derma Roller for the recommended amount  with ensure that you won’t suffer from any negative side effects. Your skin might grow a little red immediately after treatment, but this will subside in about an hour’s time.  Make sure you carefully read the instructions for recommended use included with your roller!
