Capillary Reduction

It's saying goodbye to old friends.

Laser therapy is the best way to deal with your unwanted capillaries. It reduces dilated capillaries and improves the skin’s condition. We use the medical grade Candela GentleYAG laser for fast results, and recommend treatments at 6-12 week intervals. It’s a non-surgical treatment so you can walk out of our clinic with confidence and clear skin!

Capillary Reduction

What to expect

The relatively painless treatment increases the production of collagen, which makes those vessels naturally disappear.

The number of treatments depend on the size of the capillaries and how your skin reacts. Smaller capillaries respond more quickly to treatment.


Capillary removal is the treatment of an individual dialated capillary using laser energy to target the blood supply within the vessel. The heat from the laser can collapse the capillary wall causing the vessel to shut down on itself. This will then be treated as useless to the body and will be taken away via the lympatic system.


Flushing is the same concept of heating the tiny microvascular network, shutting it down and removing it as waste.

For your best results

We recommend 3-6 treatments at 6-12 week intervals. Most capillaries can be permanently reduced, but touch-ups once or twice a year after a course of treatment may be required to ensure optimal results.

Preparation Required

No sun exposure 2 weeks prior and use of Institut Age Defence SPF 50+ sunscreen.


There may be some redness similar to bruising if large areas have been treated. For smaller areas there is very little redness afterwards.

Avoid any creams or treatment with active ingredients for at least 3 days.

Avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight directly after your treatment and always use Institut Laser Aid, Vitamin C & Age Defence 50+ to maintain results.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I know what treatment is right for me?
    Speak to one of our skin specialists for a complimentary skin consultation. We love educating people about their skin and will offer you a tailored treatment plan
  • What will my skin look like when I walk out of the clinic - will I need time off work?
    Each person’s skin is different – so your response will vary, but the majority of our skin treatments require no downtime. . Your therapist will take you through a post-treatment care regime that will minimise any impact to your skin.
  • How long will it take for me to see a result after my treatments?
    Each procedure is different – our less invasive treatments (such as microdermabrasion and superficial chemical peels) give more immediate results, and our more invasive treatments (such as Fractional RF (Max RF), Dermal rolling and deeper chemical peels) taken longer to see results (1-3 months). These treatments, however, have more lasting impacts than the less invasive treatments. Your therapist will advise on a treatment plan that will include a variety of treatments and our cosmedical-grade skin scapre products to address the skin concerns you have.
  • How do I maximise the benefits of my skin treatments?

    Combine your treatments with LED light therapy and Skinstitut cosmedical skin care.

    LED works on a cellular level to fight active acne, rosacea and leaves your skin energised and youthful. The deep penetrating LED lights are designed to be soothing, target deep into skin cells to heighten their internal functions, photo-stimulate dermal blood flow and induce faster healing, reduce acne and treat rosacea.

    Cosmedicals are the newest and arguably the most effective category of skin products that can be purchased without prescription. Often described as an advanced cosmeceutical, Cosmedicals have the ability to target not only present and past skin damage, but provide the skin with some preventative capacity for the future. Based on a medically and clinically proven blend of AHA, Retinoids, Vitamin C, Peptides, Antioxidant and SPF technology, Cosmedicals are not only reliant on a potent percentage of active ingredients but utilise carefully formulated base formulas, encapsulation technology and penetration enhancers to deliver benefits as deep as possible into the skin.

  • Why do I need to use aftercare products?

    The importance of before and aftercare is to ensure you receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatments we offer. This includes our skin and laser treatments and can even be applied to cosmetic injections.

    For example our 5 a-day home care pack has everything you need for before and after your treatments. It will help to ensure you get fantastic results and your skin will heal and respond effectively following your treatments.
