Can microneedling cause broken capillaries?

 

Can microneedling cause broken capillaries?

This is a common worry.

However microneedling is proven and safe, and because it is only minimally invasive and is non-ablative it carries very little risk of adverse reactions.

On the contrary…

In fact, despite the apparent contraindication to its use where vascular conditions exist, it can actually be very effective at treating conditions like Telangiectasia (often referred to as broken capillaries) as the microchannels stimulate the development of new capillaries (angiogenesis) and the strengthening of the vascular network.

A thorough consultation will highlight any potential issues and you may be advised to prepare your skin in advance through the use of appropriate skin care products.
