The Science of CLARO

How Does CLARO Eliminate Acne?

In order to understand the science behind CLARO, it helps to understand the science of acne. The bacteria that cause acne produces a compound called porphyrin. CLARO uses heat and light to stimulate porphyrin to produce singlet oxygen that attacks and eliminates the acne bacteria.


The Science of acne

The most common cause of acne is a hormone surge that stimulates production of oil, or sebum.  This natural oil combines with dead skin cells to form a plug in the pore, causing the acne bacteria to grow. 

In its simplest form, the irritation becomes a whitehead.  If the plug becomes open to the surface, it may oxidize and darken, turning into a blackhead.  These types of blemishes are known as non-inflammatory acne.

Pimples develop when there is a break in the wall of the pore; white blood cells rush in and rise to the surface, creating inflamed and sore pimples– classic “zits.”  CLARO was designed to treat common pimples, known as mild to moderate inflammatory acne.

In other words, CLARO activates your body’s own natural defense system to fight acne.


Heat + Light = IPL

Dermatologists have used the healing properties of light for decades. In fact, clinical studies show the effectiveness of laser and light-based devices in clearing acne. Today, most Dermatologists rely on very sophisticated IPL systems to treat acne patients.

The scientists who developed CLARO wanted to harness the effectiveness of professional light-based systems, delivering heat and light in a quick, safe treatment that’s simple to use.

CLARO delivers on the benefits of IPL, right in the palm of your hand!
