Turn Back Time Medical & Aesthetics proudly offers the genuine DERMAROLLER® Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) professional and home care system for microneedling therapy. DERMAROLLER® is made in Germany and licensed by Health Canada.
The surgical-grade steel micro-needles on the DERMAROLLER® are uniquely shaped and placed to cause precise and controlled tiny injuries to the epidermis and dermis. These mechanical injuries trigger wound healing, healthy new cells, and new collagen production with minimal invasion and downtime. The positive effects of microneedling include the repair of wrinkles and crepey skin, as well as an improvement in texture, tone and thickness. It has also been clinically proven to improve scars and stretch marks. Microneedling treatments are safe and effective for all skin types.

You should be prepared to spend 90 minutes at the clinic if you are having a medical microneedling (CIT) treatment. A topical anesthetic will be applied first for 30 minutes, and the procedure with the roller or eDermaStamp will follow. The treatment will conclude with a soothing and hydrating hyaluronic acid mask.
Medical microneedling treatments can cause mild to moderate discomfort, but topical anesthesia prior to the treatment will ensure greater comfort during the procedure. The DERMAROLLER® home system can be used safely at home with little to no discomfort, and without the use of topical anesthetics.
Microneedling treatments have very little potential for complications. The DERMAROLLER® CIT system has been approved for safe use by Health Canada and the FDA. Microneedling treatments provide minimally invasive mechanical wounds to the skin, unlike the burn injuries and accompanying adverse effects when lasers are used to resurface/remodel the skin. A small risk of Infection is always possible when the skin is broken, however, clean and/or sterile procedures are used to avoid contamination; a new roller or eDermaStamp cartridge is used for every patient and every new treatment. Hyperpigmentation can occur with aggressive eDermaStamp treatments.
For optimal results 3-6 treatments should be performed at least 2 months apart (in order to allow for collagen maturation). Very early results may be seen one week after treatment, with noticeable results 6 weeks after. Your skin can continue to improve for up to 6 months after your treatment.
Immediate post-treatment skin is red and warm, like a sunburn. Hours later swelling may develop . This usually subsides within a couple days, with more aggressive treatments requiring a little more recovery time. Detailed post treatment instructions will be provided to protect your post-treatment skin.
Not all skin products are appropriate for post treatment skin, and some ingredients are vitally important to ensure you get optimal treatment results. Your treatment results are so important to us that patients have the opportunity to purchase a customized, medical grade SKINMEDICA® package at a discounted rate when a microneedling package is purchased.
