Does anyone have experience of dermaneedling sensitive couperosa skin? Is it safe?

Sorry for the delayed answer.
 
Even though dermarolling is often recommended for broken capillaries, from our experience, it does not improve broken capillaries.
 
You should better try a vascular laser. The light of the laser is absorbed by the skin, especially by hemoglobin in the blood. This absorbed energy heats up the blood vessel so much, that it seals it. Unfortunately, this treatment is not always successful (the vessels may reappear) and it can in some rare cases have side effects (burns, hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation etc).
My comments should not be considered medical advice.
