  • 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.
