Can micro-needling help with spider veins on my face?

Doctor Answers 4

Vascular lasers are best for facial veins

Vascular laser like he Excel v or V Beam or even the KTP lasers are best. IPL can work, micro needling will not work. 

All the best

Spider Veins on Face and Body -- Pro Yellow, Pulsed Dye Laser

We have great success with the ProYellow laser and this has very little downtime. Alternatively the vbeam/pulsed dye laser or excel V can be used. Best, Dr. Emer.

Best Treatment for Facial Veins

While microneedling can provide various benefits to the skin, it will unfortunately not help with any vascular issues such as spider veins. Microneedling promotes collagen and elastin production, resulting in improvement of skin tone, texture, and firmness, but will not improve (or worsen) veins.

If veins are your main concern, one of the very best treatments you could receive is the VBeam laser. The VBeam laser specifically targets vascular issues, aiding in the treatment of such things as veins, rosacea, scars, and birthmarks. Multiple sessions are generally recommended for a significant improvement.

Once are ready to pursue treatment for your concerns, be sure to seek out a board certified Dermatologist with extensive laser experience. Best of luck!

Spider veins on face

Microneedling is a collagen stimulating procedure, it does not treat facial blood vessels. You may want to consider IPL treatments- Intense Pulse Light- often referred to as a "Photofacial". Facial blood vessels/capillaries can usually be cleared with this service within 1 to 3 treatments.
