The Kleresca® technology offers non-destructive, non-systemic, and painless treatments that use fluorescent light energy (FLE) to stimulate the skin’s own repair mechanisms2-12.
The treatment is based on the interaction between a specially designed gel and the Kleresca® Light1-3,12. Chromophores in the gel convert the blue light from the lamp into fluorescent light energy (FLE) that penetrates the skin and activates its healing responses.
In this context, biophotonic refers to the interaction between the light and your skin3,8. Kleresca®’s biophotonic treatment represents a completely new way of helping your patients prepare their skin before high-energy and invasive treatments and improve their recovery after it.
Photobiomodulation is a mechanism where light stimulates the cells in the body leading to different beneficial clinical effects and stimulation of its own repair mechanisms3,8. It has already been used for the treatment of acne and for skin rejuvenation with very positive results1,2,4,5.
The chromophores in the gel convert the blue light from the lamp into fluorescent light energy (FLE) that covers the spectra from green over yellow and orange to red at once2,3,12.
The fluorescence generated (dynamic, ultrafast pulsing light) penetrates the different layers of the skin, triggering documented healing responses and activating their healing mechanisms2,3,12.
Kleresca® Pre-Post Treatment is used in combination with skin procedures like peels and lasers8,12. Through fluorescent light energy (FLE), the treatment activates the skin cells in a non-destructive, yet effective manner2-12.
The recommended protocol depends the type of the invasive treatment used and the healing time that the skin might need, but generally, a total of 4 – 5 sessions is recommended1.
It is common to provide 1-2 sessions before applying an invasive treatment to prepare the skin. Once this treatment is finished and the skin has no open wounds, it is common to follow up with 2-3 sessions1,8,11.
Currently, four products are available on the Kleresca® technology platform: Kleresca® Acne Treatment, Kleresca® Rosacea Treatment, Kleresca® Skin Rejuvenation and Kleresca® Pre-Post Treatment. Each indication features a specifically formulated gel. This is then utilised with specific pre-programmed settings in the Kleresca® Light.
The Kleresca® Pre-Post Treatment uses a multi-LED lamp as its energy source and emits in the blue light area, within the visible light spectrum. No harmful UV light is emitted by the system1,2,11. Clinical trials have shown that Kleresca® is a well-tolerated treatment with no serious side effects reported2-12.
The patented Kleresca® Light, with pre-programmed wavelength settings specific to each indication, has been developed and tested to efficiently cause the chromophores to photoconvert blue light, thereby creating fluorescent light energy (FLE)12.
Yes. Kleresca® Treatments do not induce photosensitivity and patients do not need to avoid sun exposure during or after the treatments. However, people should protect themselves against the harmful UV light of the sun with a broad spectrum sun screen.
Kleresca® FLE treatments are generally gentle and comfortable. Being non-invasive, there is no destruction or removal of the skin’s natural barriers. The gel used during the treatment is not absorbed by the skin, so no substance in it can induce a photosensitive reaction.
The system is easy to use and complementary training is also offered as part of a certification program for clinic staff.
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)2-12. Side effects impact patients differently depending on their skin type, so we always recommend talking to your clinician before beginning treatment.
