J Cosmet Dermatol. 2021 Aug;20(8):2571-2573. doi: 10.1111/jocd.13858. Epub 2020 Dec 3.


Spider vein is mostly seen in patients with liver disease, although the underlying problem is sometimes unknown. If spider vein appears on the face, it can affect the self-esteem and self-image of patients. Particularly, females are more vulnerable to these complications. Spider nevi are mostly left untreated since they are considered a cosmetic matter; in case of treatment, the procedure is costly with limited satisfaction. Therefore, this study reports the successful treatment of a spider vein case using a microneedling procedure.
