Hi There – I’ve Heard That Home CIT Rollers Are Good

Question

Hi there – I’ve heard that home CIT rollers are good to use as part of a skin-care regime. I’m in my early 30s so am starting to see fine lines, and have rather large pores. I’m quite keen to get a roller, but just wanted to find out if they are effective for my needs (anti-ageing and tightening pores) and safe to use at home? Thanks!

Answer

Hi there. Thank-you for your enquiry. You are absolutely correct. Home rollers are extremely effective in increasing product penetration, improving fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin texturing. It is however extremely important to make sure you are rolling with good quality products and serums (if you intend rolling over your active products), so HA serums, growth factor serums or anti-ageing products need to be appropriate for rolling. I would not advise rolling in your “over the counter” products. You also need to be sure that you are using a quality roller. There are SO MANY rollers out there, that are not appropriate for home use and have issues like, needles made from inappropriate metals, needles being blunt, uneven or even bent, resulting in ripping the skin. At our Skin Renewal branches we make use of the Dermaroller and the Environ Roll CIT for home use. These are safe, and good quality rollers. Please feel free to call or drop in at any of our branches if you would like to take a look at them or ask a qualified therapist or Doctor for more information and get some guidance on which products would work best with your roller.

Question

Hi Dr Maureen,

I am a 31 yr old mother with very limited time for skincare routine. I have recently been diagnosed with scalp atopic dermattis and have been put on a course of antibiotics for a full month. Ive only had severe cases after all three of my pregnancies with my last one been 8 months ago. How can I prevent this from returning and what products would you recommend for my scalp-keep in mind I have very curly ethic hair making it very difficult to use some products as I need extra moisture and conditioner for my hair. I have also recently noticed a mild case of eczema on my breast-making breastfeeding quite challenging.

Please help :)

Question

Hi Dr Maureen, I have oily skin and in my 30s. I’m looking for a skincare treatment that will assist with clearing my skin and keep the oiliness at bay as well as serve as an anti aging. It doesn’t have to be in the same jar. I’m currently using Mineraline Time-it products for anti-aging, but it’s not doing anything for the oilyness and the random breakouts. Please could you advice.
