What is Kleresca®?


What is Kleresca®?

Kleresca® is a breakthrough biophotonic treatment that significantly and comfortably improves acne, with high safety. It is offered exclusively in professional clinics.

Kleresca® harnesses the power of biophotonics to safely treat your acne and stimulate the tissue’s own repair systems. The treatment uses a high intensity in-clinic lamp together with a photoconverter gel to kill bacteria in the skin and initiate healing.

Kleresca® is administered twice a week for six weeks. The treatment offers you a comfortable experience. A nurse or practitioner will apply a topical orange gel that is illuminated under a multi-wavelength LED light for nine minutes.

What is biophotonics

Biophotonics is a unique light conversion system that is designed to stimulate your skin’s own repair at the cellular level.  Kleresca®’s innovative biophotonic treatment is not like any other treatment; it uses multi-LED light combined with a photoconverter gel. The gel allows the spectrum of wavelengths to penetrate into the dermis of the skin to kill bacteria and stimulate your skin’s own repair systems, thus treating your acne and encouraging the build-up of collagen, which may support the repair of acne scarring.

How it works

A nurse or clinician will cleanse your skin and apply the Kleresca® gel to your face. The gel is then photo-activated using a multi-wavelength LED lamp.

While you may feel a warming sensation on your skin, most people find the treatment pleasant and comfortable.After nine minutes under the light, the gel is removed. Your complexion may experience redness after the treatment.

Who is it for?

Kleresca® is an effective treatment for all kinds of acne vulgaris, even severe cases. To start the treatment, you should schedule a consultation at a Kleresca® clinic. Your dermatologist or clinician will determine whether treatment with Kleresca® is right for you.

What to expect

You should see noticeable improvements to your skin as the deeper layers respond and skin repairing occurs during the six-week treatment course.

For at least six weeks after your treatment, you can expect to see additional improvements to your complexion. Results have been seen to have a long-lasting effect.

Expert results

Results have been seen to have long-lasting effect. In clinical trials, Kleresca® showed high efficacy on people with moderate to severe acne. Nine out of 10 people saw an improvement to their skin*, whereas every third person achieved clear or almost clear skin.

In an extended clinical trial, 92% of the people who had previously achieved an improvement of two grades or more on the Investigators’ Global Assessment (IGA) scale for acne severity went on to maintain this improvement. None of the people treated returned to their original acne severity.
