Acne is the most common of skin
diseases and affects up to 85% of
Australians aged 15–24, and can
persist into adulthood. Even after the
skin has improved, the physical and
emotional scarring of acne can be
difficult. For many people, conventional
acne treatments can pose a range of
challenges from not working, to skin
irritation and serious side effects.

Kleresca Acne Treatment uses
BioPhotonics – a light conversion
system designed to stimulate the skin
and improve complexion – to treat
acne and reduce the signs of scarring.

in-clinic light device together with a
photoconverter gel to kill bacteria in
the skin and initiate healing. Patients
are required to have treatments twice
a week for six weeks. Improvement
to the skin can be expected as the
deeper layers respond, with skin repair
occurring during the course of the
treatment and after the treatment has
ended. Clinical data for Kleresca has
been accepted for publication in the
International Journal of Dermatology.
It is available through certified Kleresca
