Acne is something I never experienced to a high degree but I have seen first hand through family and friends how much of an impact it can have on people’s lives. Whether it’s the red inflamed spots or the left over deep scarring, confidence can be shaken deeply when in full swing. Acne affects both males and females and so much is said about treatment for acne, with little actually being true or useful. A few weeks ago when I attended an event to launch a breakthrough treatment for people with acne vulgaris, it was so exciting to see that a new way to treat this ‘common chronic skin disease involving blockage and/or inflammation of pilosebaceous units (hair follicles and their accompanying sebaceous gland)‘ was now available in Australia. Even more exciting, was the before and after images of the lovely patient Natalie who we also met – to see this amount of difference in just 4 months is incredible. Photographic evidence below;
Now I’ve got your attention, let me tell you more about the Kleresca® treatment. It’s a gentle, in-clinic experience that safely and effectively treats acne, whilst also stimulating the repair of scarring by encouraging the build up of collagen in the skin. It uses a gel applied to the skin which is placed under a high-intensity lamp to kill bacteria and stimulate your own skins repair systems in a pleasant and comfortable way. This treatment even works on severe acne in just 2 nine minutes sessions per week over six weeks, making it a small investment for such a fantastic outcome.
Kleresca® has little to no downtime after each treatment and has a long lasting effect, as I witnessed on Natalie first hand (the event was held three months after the conclusion of treatments). In clinical trials, no serious adverse reactions were noted and 9 out of 10 people saw an improvement in their skin, with every third person reaching clear or almost clear skin – such a cool stat!
Tasmania very rarely gets enough new treatments straight away, so to have one of the first 15 clinics offering this treatment in Australia is so exciting for us rural people, but it’s also available in NSW, QLD, ACT, VIC and SA. If you’re international, definitely one to investigate with your local derm.
