  • Clarisonic on Good Morning America as the “Hot New Skin Treatment”

    The Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System was recently featured on ABC’s Good Morning America in a segment titled “The Hot New Skin Treatment”. Consumer Technology Contributer for ABC News, Becky Worley, did her own test drive of the Clarisonic to prove the system’s deep cleansing, reducing pores and fine lines capabilities.

    Check out Becky’s experience with the Clarisonic below to see her results!

    In her test drive, Becky used the Clarisonic on the right side of her face for five days and just soap and water on the other side. Becky said the Clarisonic side felt cleaner, and she thought she saw a very subtle reduction in the appearance of fine lines. She also tried the fluorescent makeup test and commented that Clarisonic did an amazing job removing the makeup while the soap and water side did not.
    Becky also acknowledged less expensive face brushes on the market but preferred the Clarisonic because it was more invigorating! Becky also mentions the Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System which is the smaller, travel-friendly model and the Clarisonic Classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System. Check out the different Clarisonic Systems available to you on our website.

  • Using the Clarisonic with Skin Conditions

    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.

  • Prototypes of the Clarisonic

    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.

    After more than 10 prototypes, the motion was perfected. Take a trip back through the first prototypes of the Clarisonic to learn how we created the most preferred facial brush today.

    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 C: Next, individual bristle tufts were integrated into the device. The rows of tufts on the brush head moved linearly in opposite directions, producing tension and compression on the skin.

    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!

  • Clarisonic Sonic Oscillation Animation

    What sets the Clarisonic apart from comparative products is its patented sonic oscillation technology. As you learned in the Skin Elasticity Graph, sonic oscillation works within the skin’s natural elasticity “safe range”, not against it.

    The 300+ micro movements per second delivered by Clarisonic’s patented technology are the optimum sonic frequency to deliver a micro-massage movement that helps gently massage dirt, oil and make-up from pores. The patented sonic oscillation motion of the Clarisonic ensures that the skin is cleansed 6x better than cleansing with your hands alone. When impurities are removed, skin feels softer and smoother and becomes healthier and more radiant each day. And because skin is so clean, it’s better able to absorb moisturizers, creams and serums.

    Take a look behind the technology in the Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System to see how the Clarisonic works with your skin to wiggle dirt and impurities from your pores.

    Enter to win a Clarisonic Mia today by answering the following question in the comments: At how many movements per second does Clarisonic’s patented sonic technology oscillate?
