what does derma roller 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 are 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 Scientia 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 Scientia 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.
