Can dermarollers help reduce skin redness and thread veins on face and nose?

Intrerested to know if the collagen enhancing properties of dermarolling can have a positive impact on facial redness and threadveins.

No, may worsen redness and veins. Lasers are best.

No, rolling does not target blood vessel but work on the basis of CIT- or collagen induced therapy. Veins and redness may be worsened by rolling, however they can easily be treated with lasers and IPL. See a Specialist for an assessment. All the best, Dr Davin Lim

Derma Roller for Redness

Thank you for your question in regards to treating redness with a derma roller.

Usually redness is better treated with BBL (Broad Band Light) phototherapy, then followed by a derma roller to help with skin texture and pore size.

To find out what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.
