How is Kleresca® Acne Treatment different to other available light treatments?

Kleresca® biophotonic platform offers a non-invasive treatment that uses fluorescent light energy to stimulate your skin’s own repair mechanisms. The treatment reduces inflammation, normalizes cellular activity and increases the build-up of collagen at the same time.

The Kleresca® biophotonic system consists of a specially formulated photoconverter gel that works together with the Kleresca® multi-LED lamp. Kleresca® Acne Treatment is a multi-action treatment. It is seen to act against the different factors responsible for acne but also reducing the signs of scarring by promoting the build-up of collagen.  

 

What are biophotonics?

In this context, biophotonic refers to the interaction between photons and your skin. Kleresca®’s biophotonic treatment represents a completely new way of treating your acne. 

What is the meaning of photobiomodulation?

Photobiomodulation is a mechanism in which light exposure stimulates cellular function leading to beneficial clinical effects. It is also being applied clinically in the treatment of soft tissue injuries and the acceleration of wound healing.

 

 

What is the role of the Kleresca® gel in the treatment?

Inspired by photosynthesis, chromophores in the gel convert light waves from the lamp into a fluorescent light energy that stimulates the skin’s own repair mechanisms. Thanks to the gel, the fluorescent light energy generated covers the green, yellow, orange and red spectrum of the light. Like that, we have the benefits of the blue light generated by the Kleresca® lamp as well as the deeper effects in the tissue that the fluorescent light energy covers. The different wavelengths have the ability to penetrate to various depths of the skin and to stimulate the skin tissues and cells. 

 

 

What are the benefits of Kleresca® Acne Treatment?

Kleresca® Acne Treatment works as a multi-action treatment, addressing several factors of causes related to acne. 

Kills bacteria responsible for acne (P. acnes)
Reduces inflammation
Encourages collagen build-up, stimulating acne scars repair.
 

 

How soon will I see results?

You should see noticeable improvements in your skin during the last weeks that the treatment takes place. These improvements should also continue for months after the treatment has stopped. That’s due to the activation of the deeper layers of the skin with the repairing continuing after the treatment has ended.

How long will the results last?

After finishing the treatment, the already normalized skin continues working and you can expect to see additional improvements to your complexion for months after the treatment has stopped. 

Persistence of efficacy has been demonstrated for at least 6 months. Experience from current clinics using Kleresca® Acne Treatment show that persistence can last for at least a year.
 

 

Which areas can be treated with Kleresca® Acne Treatment?

Kleresca® Acne Treatment can be used in all the affected areas with acne. This includes face, chest and back.

What is the recommended protocol?

Kleresca® Acne Treatment is performed twice per week for six weeks.

Is it painful?

No. Patients treated mention a warm and tingling sensation and describe Kleresca® Acne Treatment as pleasant and comfortable.

Is the light harmful?

No. The Kleresca® Acne Treatment uses a multi-LED lamp (Light Emitting Diode) as its energy source. Harmful UV light is not emitted by the system. With clinical trials showing high safety and efficacy, Kleresca® Acne Treatment is a well-tolerated treatment with no serious side effects reported.

Does the gel enter into the skin?

The gel stays on the surface of the skin to convert the light emitted by the lamp into fluorescent light energy. This fluorescent light energy is then providing beneficial effects into the your skin, causing then the modulation of the biological processes in the multiple layers of the skin.

Where can I get the treatment?

The treatment is offered exclusively in selected and certified Kleresca® clinics. Find your nearest clinic here.

Is Kleresca® Acne Treatment safe?

Yes. The technology has been on the market since 2014. 

Side effects – seen in some patients – are all non-permanent and may include redness, swelling and hyperpigmentation (bronzing of an area of the skin). Side effects impact patients differently – if at all – so we always recommend talking to your clinician before beginning treatment.
