The Clarisonic cleanses 2xs more effectively than manual cleansing and provides you with smoother skin but Clarisonic fan, Ter, wants to know if the system can help with sun and age spots. Dr. Robb is here to answer her question in the video below!
Dr. Robb says, that the problem actually resides deep within the skin, those products that are out there have a hard time getting deep enough to calm the problem. He says the Clarisonic does do the following, it will help cleanse your skin so well that any of those hyper pigmentation products that you apply will go on smoothly and evenly and absorb better because you’ve removed those physical barriers due to Sonic Technology.
Congratulations to Ter Garney who has won a Clarisonic Mia for submitting this question!
We recently held an Evolution of Skin Care Mia Giveaway throughout the month of July to bring you some of the information from the Evolution of Skin Care event we held in New York earlier this year. The event educated the beauty editors about the differences and benefits associated with Sonic Cleansing, so we wanted to make sure we also passed that information on to you.
Even after a month of fun facts, we know there is still so much to learn about sonic cleansing, so we asked our fans what questions they were dying to ask Dr. Robb, the Vice President of Clinical Research and a Co-founder of Clarisonic.
We filmed Dr. Robb’s answers to 10 fan questions, and will share two questions each week throughout the month of August to continue Clarisonic education. The questions range from what to do during the purging process to what age you can begin using the Clarisonic. We hope these answers will clarify some of the questions you may have about the Clarisonic.
And, because we love to reward our fans, we’re going to post each question in the morning and give you the opportunity to answer it before we reveal Dr. Robb’s answer. If you answer the question correctly before we post the Dr. Robb video, you will be entered into a drawing to win a Clarisonic Mia!
The person who originally submitted the question also wins a Clarisonic Mia for participating.
Stay tuned for today’s question!
Who knew something so powerful could be so gentle. The Clarisonic is the preferred facial cleansing brush among professionals as well as high end spas and retailers because it is remarkably gentle for all skin types, including skin affected by complicated conditions such as rosacea and seborrhea.
Unlike many skin treatments that use harsh chemicals or friction to cleanse, the micro-massage action of the Clarisonic is effective, yet gentle enough to be used twice a day. However, we always suggest if you are under a doctor’s care for any skin condition, please consult with your physician before using the Clarisonic.
Cleansing with Seborrhea
Cleansing with Rosacea
After 8 weeks of using the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System as part of an anti-aging skin care ritual, participants noticed an improved evenness in skin tone as you can see in the image on the left.
Enter today’s Evolution of Skin Care Mia Giveaway by answering in the comments below True or False: The Clarisonic can be used on skin with skin conditions such as Rosacea and Seborrhea.
Who knew something so powerful could be so gentle? With the sonic micro-massage motion, the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System feels more like a treat than a treatment. Unlike many skin treatments that use harsh chemicals or rely on friction to remove impurities, the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System is gentle enough to use twice a day – even on sensitive skin.
Because not all skin is the same, neither are our brush heads. Made from DuPont Tynex Supersoft filaments, the soft bristle material is designed specifically for use in nail, mascara and other cosmetic brushes and is antibacterial. Clarisonic Brush Heads are made to accommodate a range of skin types – normal, sensitive and delicate – as well as specific functions – Deep Pore and Body.
Enter our Evolution of Skin Care Mia Giveaway by telling us what brush head type you prefer to use with your Clarisonic and why?
Would you believe that with such effortless action you can actually remove six times more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone? As you can see in the images below, cleansing with your hands alone leaves dirt and oil on the skin whereas the Clarisonic cleanses your skin more efficiently.
We recently introduced the Deep Pore Cleansing brush head to cleanse pores in those hard -to-reach areas of the nose. The Deep Pore Cleansing brush head is an innovation because of its dual action movement with three sets of dual inner rings that oscillate in counter-rotation.
Additionally, the Deep Pore Cleansing brush head is able to efficiently cleanse uneven areas of the face due to the unique gradation of bristle firmness. Pliable outer rings become gradually firmer toward the center of the brush head. The firm inner bristles maintain effective micro-massage movement and do not collapse or become immobile against the contours of the face.
The Deep Pore Cleansing brush head is an ideal compliment to your current brush to provide a deeper cleanse. However, the brush head is also safe to use daily up to two times per day.
Cleansing is an essential first step in any healthy skin care regimen. You’ve seen how the Clarisonic sonic technology works within the skin’s natural elasticity and delivers a gentle yet effective cleanse. Another interesting function of the patented sonic oscillation is its ability to “flush” impurities from pores.
Many people are confused as to the difference of sonic oscillation technology versus spinning technology. The video below shows you how the technologies differ under water. In turn the “fluid forces” that you see in the water reflect the way moisture on your face is used when you are cleansing to help flush impurities from your pores.
Hopefully the video gave you a better idea of the differences. To enter our Mia Giveaway, tell us how the fluid forces of spinning and sonic oscillation differ in the comments below. Good luck!
You know that the Sonicare toothbrush inspired the sonic oscillation technology of the Clarisonic, but do you know how we came up with the system we have today? The first Clarisonic prototype consisted of steel bars to move the skin. Needless to say, that pinched a bit.
Prototypes A and B: Built from a barber’s razor and stainless steel bars, prototypes A and B were based on the idea that alternating tension and compression of the skin could help loosen blockages in pores. While that worked, it didn’t offer a pleasant cleansing experience.
Prototype MK1: Nicknamed “soap-on-a-rope,” this was the first prototype to use an accurate, bi-directional motion. It was also the first prototype to incorporate a resonant torsion spring motor- a concept that went on to be patented and used in the first production models.
Prototype MK2: The first to be battery-powered, rechargeable and somewhat water-resistant, this prototype was also used to develop some of the early cleansing claims. Comments from test subjects about the ergonomics of the handle helped inspire later production models.
Now that you have learned how we arrived at the Clariosnic we use today, tell us in the comments what year we launched the first Clarisonic (known as the Clarisonic Classic today) for a chance to win a Clarisonic Mia in today’s Evolution of Skin Care giveaway!
