Promote skin repair and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and other signs of aging with Dermaroller® Collagen Induction Therapy. Dermaroller® is licensed by Health Canada.
Scientific solution for the most common symptoms of aging
Collagen Induction Therapy (Micro-Needling)
When it comes to minimally invasive treatments, Micro-needling Collagen Induction therapy with the Dermaroller® is clinically proven and is perhaps the most successful treatment available for the common signs and symptoms of aging such as wrinkles, loss of skin volume, and crepey skin. The Dermaroller® micro-needling treatment is even proven to minimize scars and stretch marks. Dermaroller® therapy triggers the body’s spontaneous healing process, stimulating cell proliferation and causing the formation of new collagen. This results in a thicker, more supple, cellular matrix. Results: visibly younger looking skin.
PROOF: The image shows a biopsy of the epidermis before and after micro-needling therapy. Significant new collagen (dyed purple) has been generated, 6 weeks after a single treatment.
How It Works
The Dermaroller® causes minimally invasive precision micro-injuries of the epidermis and dermis, without causing open wounds or ablative damage. The puncturing channels close after a short time and these micro-injuries trigger the body’s wound healing cascade, which induces an increased collagen production in the treated skin. Dermaroller® triggers the construction of new tissue by stimulating healthy cell regeneration in precision-targeted areas that show the signs of aging. It effectively reduces wrinkles, tightens and thickens the skin, and – perhaps most impressively – fills and smooths scars.
Dermaroller®’s surgical-grade micro-needles reach beyond the epidermis into the dermis, causing pin-point bleeding and triggering the body’s spontaneous healing response.
2. Healing Cascade
Within minutes, the perforation channels close and the healing cascade starts, invading the area with collagen-producing fibroblasts and growth-promoting properties.
3. Younger Looking Skin
New organized collagen & elastin forms, bolstering from within, while the epidermis becomes thicker and more supple, each time a treatment is performed.
Beware of imitations. Dermaroller® is the original device of it's kind. All other derma-rolling devices have been fashioned after the Dermaroller® and it's important to understand the differences.
Licensed by Health Canada
The Dermaroller® is licensed by Health Canada. There are countless imitation products on the market that are not licensed by Health Canada so we recommend you do your research, to protect your health and safety.
Certified Medical-Grade Equipment
The Dermaroller® is ISO13485 certified (certified medical device), meeting all standards for medical-grade equipment in manufacturing, materials, sterile packaging and more.
The medical-grade micro-needles of the Dermaroller® are atraumatic (non-traumatic) cone-shaped needles that displace the skin during the puncture process, creating a micro-wound that seals within minutes of treatment. Poorer quality roller devices are made with knife-shaped needles that slice through tissue and risk causing traumatic skin, vessel and nerve damage. Poor quality needles also require increased pressure, making for a more painful treatment.
Where other scar and anti-aging treatments are ablative (destroying tissue), the Dermaroller® respects the integrity of the epidermis and dermis, using atraumatic (non-traumatic) perforations to gently trigger the generation of new tissue.
Optimal Needle Count
Don’t be mislead by imitation rollers that boast “the most needles”. Though we want to maximize the number of perforations, too many needles compromises the safety and comfort of the treatment. Imagine a bed of nails: while a bed of nails can easily support your body weight without a nail perforating your skin, a single nail would easily penetrate your skin under the same pressure. Similarly, a roller with too many needles will require dangerous and uncomfortable amounts of pressure in order to penetrate the skin to the appropriate depth. The Dermaroller® employs the optimal number of needles to maximize effectiveness, safety and comfort.
The Original Dermaroller®
The Dermaroller® is a drum-shaped medical device, studded with rows of fine micro-needles. It is rolled over the skin to cause minimally invasive perforations of the skin. There are various roller heads of different widths and with different length needles, depending on the treatment indication and area.
The eDermastamp® is an advancement of the classic Dermaroller®, in which the microneedles are not applied manually to the skin but by motor power that moves a needle module up and down with a high frequency. The needle length is adjusted according to the indication and treatment area.
CIT Hyal is as close to a magic potion as it comes! Skin becomes taller, tapered, firmer and younger looking. How does it work? CIT Hyal is produced in a unique biophotonic method. The particle size of the originally long-chained molecule is micronized and dehydrated so that it can be introduced into the skin. The dehydrated gel, which was purposely dehydrated by 50% during the biophotonic method, penetrates the upper layers of the skin and then swells to its original size when cross-linked with the intercellular fluid. The best news? The effect of the CIT Hyal hyaluron gel is a sustainable one: the molecules of the original CIT Hyal hyaluron gel have the same composition as naturally occurring hyaluronic acid so, as they are deposited, they give the skin the ability to restore the youthful moisture storage.
