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.

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

The chromophores in the gel convert the blue light from the Kleresca® Light into fluorescent light energy (FLE) that covers the spectra from green over yellow and orange to red (approx. 510 – 610 nm) at once. The fluorescence generated (dynamic, ultrafast pulsing light) penetrates different layers in the skin, activating its healing mechanisms. 

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. This is 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?

The treatment’s recommended protocol will depend on your acne severity and your overall skin condition. We recommend that your clinician assesses the type of acne you have and defines the best regime for you and your skin.
The total number of treatments generally varies, depending on acne severity. For moderate to severe acne, we recommend 12 sessions, twice per week, for 6 weeks.

Is it painful?

The treatment is painless. Patients treated mention a warm and tingling sensation and describe Kleresca® Acne Treatment as pleasant and comfortable.

Is the light harmful?

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 penetrate the skin?

The gel stays on the surface of the skin to convert the light emitted by the lamp into fluorescent light energy (FLE). FLE then triggers beneficial effects by stimulating the healing mechanisms in the multiple layers of the skin. 

What is the difference between Kleresca® FLE treatments and PDT?

PDT (Photodynamic Therapy) is a form of phototherapy that involves light and a topical drug that gets activated with the light. The drug will get absorbed by the patient’s skin and then be activated with the light to induce a destruction of skin cells for the treatment of some skin conditions.
FLE, on the other hand, is non-destructive, non-systemic and painless alternative to drugs. The gel is not being absorbed, it is only used to convert the blue light of the Kleresca® Light into Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE). Only the light will penetrate the skin and activate its own repair mechanisms.

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.
