Living with acne can be mentally and emotionally distressing. It can be associated with a heavy emotional burden and have a negative impact on quality of life. The fact that acne is so common makes it no less heart-breaking to the people who suffer this skin disorder on their face, chest or back. Many people affected describe their acne as discomforting, a disorder that can take a hit on one’s confidence, and place a person at greater risk of social anxiety and depression.
Acne is one of the most common skin diseases and can also cause scars, which can leave permanent marks on the skin. Eight out of 10 people experience it at some point in their life, and even if it often peaks in the teen years, acne can also persist into adulthood.
It is defined as a chronic inflammatory disease of the hair follicles and sebaceous glands present in the skin, characterised by non-inflammatory and inflammatory lesions. These individual lesions have different names depending on their characteristics. You can read more about them here.
Acne is classified depending on its severity, being mild, moderate or severe.
If you are looking for a gentle, non-systemic alternative to traditional procedures, this painless treatment provides high efficacy, safety, and results that are seen to last up to a year and above.
Ask your Kleresca® clinic for a consultation to find out what kind of acne you have and if this new effective, gentle, and non-systemic treatment is the right choice for you.
Our skin contains hair follicles with sebaceous glands that continuously produce sebum, but this may be disrupted. The normal sebum production of the hair follicle may be disrupted by different factors, resulting in an inflammatory build-up, the so called pimples.
Researchers cannot say with certainty how acne occurs, but it is believed that it is caused by a combination of at least four events:
A healthy hair follicle might stop its normal cycle and start developing acne over time:
1. Increase of sebum production in the hair follicle. Overgrowth and plugging of the hair follicle.
2. The hair follicles are clogged due to the hormonally induced growth of skin cells. The sebum produced cannot be released and stays in the skin.
3. Colonisation and proliferation of bacteria C. acnes in the hair follicle. White blood cells also accumulate and tackle inflammation associated with papules, pustules, and nodular acne.

Acne can cause scars, which can leave permanent marks on the skin. Traditional acne scar treatments can cause significant discomfort and down-time while not addressing the underlying cellular dysregulation.
There are different acne scars that are classified according to the shape.
Many people with acne are not sure how to deal with the battle against their own skin. Normally, they start by trying different home remedies like face masks and scrubs, and eventually go to the pharmacy to seek out other available treatments. But sometimes, especially in cases with moderate to severe acne, these options are not enough. Conventional acne treatments can pose challenges, from not working to skin irritation to serious side effects. When considering scars, many acne scar treatments may cause significant pain and downtime - redness, swelling or, in some cases, bruising – without addressing the underlying problems in the skin.
Kleresca® Acne Treatment reduces pimples and also enhances the overall skin quality in a painless matter, reducing the appearance of scars as an extra benefit.
Acne is painful enough; the treatment shouldn’t be.
