The Derma Roller, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, has created quite some hype across the globe over the last few years and has finally reached the ears of Canadians. This treatment has proven to be so effective in treating acne breakouts and acne scars, stretch marks, surgical scars, burnt skin, rosacea, deep wrinkles, loose skin, large pores and even thinning hair and hair loss, that doctors compare results to those of Laser Skin Resurfacing Pixel and Fraxel.

The Derma Roller is a small hand-held rolling device which has 540 surgical-steel micro-needles attached. The purpose of this mechanism is to promote skin repair from the inside out. By rolling this device across the surface of the skin, tiny micro-needles penetrate the pores reaching the deepest layers of the skin. Ultimately, the trauma forces the body to produce new skin cells made of elastin and collagen. New layers of skin grow from inside out.

In simpler terms, think of pricking your skin with a pin. What happens? Your body senses the trauma and immediately begins to repair it. How? The body produces new collagen and elastin fibers and hence new layers of skin deep within to repair the trauma. That’s just one tiny prick. Imagine 540 pricks of a tiny needle in one area. Imagine how much collagen and elastin are produced to heal the area. Moreover, the pores close an hour later giving the technician time to penetrate products through these tiny tunnels that access the deepest layers of the skin. Medical studies have shown that skin care product effectiveness can be increased by up to 40 times.

Derma Rollers are supported by clinical studies to be effective in non-surgical and non-ablative treatment for a variety of skin conditions. Studies have also shown that derma rollers are often a better treatment than dermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser resurfacing. They are proven to be just as effective in their ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Regular treatments of Derma Roller can thicken skin, smooth scars of all sizes, and erase wrinkles.
