Does dermarolling (aka collagen induction therapy, skin needling) have any effect on thread veins (also known as telangiectasias, spider veins and broken capillaries)?

According to: gentlehealthandbeauty co uk Collagen-Stimulation-Therapy-

...dermarolling is especially effective for addressing the visible signs of ageing, as well as:

* sun damage
* scarring
* slackened skin
* stretch marks
* uneven skin tone
* broken capillaries/dilated blood vessels

According to thenovaclinic com qa.html:

Yes you can use the skin roller on veins close on the surface of face and body - Derma rolling helps to break up larger blood vessels. A derma or skin roller is like a rolling pin to which many, tiny, thin, acupuncture-like needles are attached, can be used to crisscross the dilated blood vessels. Disrupting them like this promotes their disappearance. Healing is usually complete in a few days and treatments may be repeated at monthly intervals as needed.

However, I read some posts people saying it made them worse.

I haven't used dermarollers consistently enough to say either way. I do get broken capillaries, and they haven't been made worse by using the smaller rollers for product penetration. I haven't used the deeper rollers and would love to hear from people who have.

I know this thread is a little old already so I hope no one minds my "bumping it" back into action again, I am really intrigued by its subject and would love to hear from others about it.

Has anyone else here tried dermarolling for spider veins/broken capillaries and, if so, did you have any good results?

I don't have many [noticable] capillaries on my face as of yet but of the ones I do have I would love to try and diminish their appearance (if there is any possibility of doing so). However, as for my legs...yikes, that's another matter altogether, those ones are VERY obvious and I can't stand them anymore. To make matters worse, they are getting more prominent over only short periods of time so I constantly dwell on finding ways to get rid of them. I swear, if they get any worse then they already are someone is going to actually mistake my legs for a big ol' plates of spaghetti because that's what they are starting to look like, ha ha.

Anyway, if anyone would like to add their two cents to this thread I would sincerely appreciate it.

Thanks so much, everyone!

Dermarolling does not work for spider veins. It does nothing IME to close off the veins and I honestly don't see how it could help. Particularly on the legs, the spider veins are being feed from larger veins that you don't see. Treatments that work,like sclerotherapy, are often just a temporary fix until you fix the underling problem.
