Acne Treatment at The Skin Clinic Fremantle, Perth.
The Skin Clinic Fremantle is proud to have been the first clinic in Western Australia to offer this revolutionary new acne treatment in Perth.
Kleresca® is a breakthrough BioPhotonic treatment that significantly and safely improves acne, without discomfort or downtime. This acne treatment is safe, non-invasive and is clinically proven to improve even severe acne. Kleresca® is ideal for patients who do not wish to undertake other acne treatment options such as prescription medication.
Before and after Kleresca® Acne Treatment
The Kleresca® acne treatment takes place on your skin and is not absorbed or metabolised, making it a well-tolerated treatment option for acne.
In clinical trials, Kleresca® showed high safety with no serious adverse events, and the treatment itself was considered to be a pleasant and comfortable experience. Side effects in those treated include redness and hyperpigmentation (bronzing of an area of the skin) and slight discoloration of hair. All side effects were transient and did not require any intervention.
In clinical trials, Kleresca® showed high efficacy on people with moderate to severe acne. Nine out of 10 people saw an improvement to their skin, whereas every third person achieved clear or almost clear skin.
In an extended clinical trial, 92% of the people who had previously achieved an improvement of two grades or more on the Investigators’ Global Assessment (IGA) scale for acne severity went on to maintain this improvement. None of the people treated returned to their original acne severity. Improvements were maintained for at least six months.

Other treatments to reduce acne
- Dermal Therapies
- LED Light Therapy
- Oral Medication
- Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
For mild acne, a number of dermal therapy techniques can be highly effective. After an initial consultation, our highly trained Dermal Therapists will work with you to optimise your at-home cosmeceutical skin care regime. We have seen fantastic results using the “clean science” of the Synergie range, which includes specific products for acne-troubled skin. With regular use, it is possible to normalise oil production, prevent unwanted keratinisation around the hair follicles, reduce inflammation and regulate skin cell turnover, leading to healthier, glowing, spot-free skin.
We may also suggest a series of in-clinic treatments, tailored to your lifestyle and your skin. These may include Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), chemical peels, microdermabrasion, Hydrafacial® and/or LED light therapy.
Utilising the latest technology in advanced light-emitting diode (LED) systems, we are able to tackle mild to moderate acne with the Healite II. This treatment involves a series of twice-weekly sessions of both red (633nm) light to reduce inflammation and oil production and blue (415nm) light to directly target P.acnes bacteria on the skin. A treatment course is usually 4-6 weeks, depending upon the severity of acne, and is used in conjunction with a cosmeceutical skin care regime. A Medicare rebate may apply, please contact us for more details.
Various prescription medications can be used to effectively treat moderate to severe acne. As with all medications, there are some contraindications and potential side effects. Any of the following options that are appropriate for your type of acne will be discussed at your clinic consultation:
- Low-dose oral antibiotics
- The combined oral contraceptive pill
- Oral vitamin A
Some topical (applied directly to the skin) medications may also be helpful, either alone or in conjunction with oral (taken by mouth) medication.
At The Skin Clinic Fremantle, we are able to utilise the latest generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to treat active acne lesions on the face, neck, chest and back.
Known as Selective Waveband Technology (SWT) the Nordlys® by Ellipse produces short, safe bursts of visible light that are directed at the skin. The system filters the light to ensure the wavelengths used are absorbed by haemoglobin in the fine blood vessels that supply the sebaceous glands in the skin.
The target cells heat up and are destroyed within a few 1000ths of a second, reducing the output of the glands and leading to a quick improvement in acne symptoms.
