  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can the Clarisonic fix my sun and age spots?

    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!

  • Ask Dr. Robb Video Series and Mia Giveaway!

    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!

  • Ask Dr. Robb: How do I clean my brush head?

    Many of you have asked “How do I clean my Clarisonic brush head?” We’ve been listening and wanted to share with you the Dr. Robb brush cleaning method.

    1. Remove brush head by gently turning counter clockwise


    2. Gently rinse brush head in warm water.

    3. Apply anti-bacterial soap to the brush head to clean the bristles. If necessary rinse out the interior of the brush under the sink or shower head.

    4. Reattach the brush head to the unit. You are ready to sonic cleanse again!


    Remember it’s important to clean your brush head at least once a week and replace every three months. Happy Cleansing!

  • Supersonic Superstar – Dr. Robb

    This week’s Supersonic Superstar is the one and only Dr. Robb Akridge, Ph.D. Dr. Robb is the co-founder of Clarisonic and is Vice President of Clinical Affairs. Besides being the “face of Clarisonic,” Dr. Robb oversees the design and implementation of all in-house clinical studies, external research contracts and clinical trials. He is the primary liaison between key dermatology opinion leaders and researchers. Prior to coming to Pacific Bioscience Laboratories, Dr. Robb was the principal scientist at Sonicare, and held clinical trial management positions at ICOS Corporation and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

    A graduate of the University of Texas in Austin, he holds a Bachelor of Science degree as well as a Master of Science degree in Biology from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos, and a Doctorate in Microbiology with an emphasis in Infectious Disease and Immunology from Texas A&M University. When he’s not in the lab Dr. Robb can be seen hob-nobbing with celebrities at events around the nation and is quickly becoming recognizable as the face behind Clarisonic. We couldn’t do what we do without Dr. Robb so we found it fitting that he be crowned the inaugural Supersonic Superstar.

    Thank you Dr. Robb for all that you do!


    Have you had a Dr. Robb sighting? When and where? We want to hear from you!
