Spinning, oscillation, and sonic can get confusing when speaking to the technology behind the Clarisonic. Dr. Robb is here to clear up any confusion about how the Clarisonic works at a rate of over 300 movements per second in the video below.
Dr. Robb says, actually it’s not spinning. That’s the old fashioned rotary technology. The Clarisonic oscillates and moves your skin back and forth very short distances to deeply cleanse your skin. But to get to your true question of how is it going so fast? It’s Sonic Magic and what that means is, the engineers have designed a magnetic motor that allows the magnets to change back and forth, and it moves at a rate of over 300 times a second.

Clarisonic fan, Barbara, asks Dr. Robb if the Clarisonic is safe on sensitive skin because she avoids facials that cause her redness and irritation. This is a common concern among users and Dr. Robb is here to clear up any confusion and worries associated with Clarisonic and sensitive skin.
Dr. Robb says, if you are under the care of a doctor always check with them, they know what’s best for you. We know that doctors throughout the United States and spas sell the Clarisonic to their patients that have Rosacea, a very sensitive condition. It is very safe and gentle for all skin types. You can start with every other day use, but honestly, we designed it to be safe and gentle.

With 42 national and international patents, the Clarisonic is one of a kind. Clarisonic fan, Pia Ianna, asks Dr. Robb what the inspiration is behind the Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing System and he is here to answer!
Dr. Robb says, WE looked at congested pores and tried to find a way we could move and wiggle them in a certain way using Sonic Technology to deeply cleanse them. One of our founders wondered if the make-up of that plug had different physical properties than the surrounding skin, and is there some way to move the skin to loosen that so you have super clean skin. I think we’ve done it with the Clarisonic! The inspiration behind the Clarisonic is the sonic technology (from the Sonicare Toothbrush) that allows for a deeper cleanse than your hands alone.

Dr. Robb answers your Sonic Questions: When do the Big Zits Go Away?
Dr. Robb answers Clarisonic fan Barbara’s question about the purging process. If you have ever wondered why the purging process occurs or how long it lasts, watch the below video featuring our very own Dr. Robb.
Dr. Robb says: What you are seeing is what you often see in spas after a deep cleansing facial. Your skin is stimulated so it’s responding by causing these blemishes to occur. Stick with it! Your skin should go back to normal and you will not believe the results with the Clarisonic.

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!
The Clarisonic works within the skin’s elasticity safe range to provide superior cleansing and yet still be gentle. Why do we care about skin elasticity?
Skin elasticity is the ability of your skin to stretch and then return to its normal state aided by the collagen fibers that make-up the skin. As you age, collagen levels decrease and collagen fibers become fatigued causing the elasticity of your skin to get poorer and therefore not return as efficiently to its normal position. Since stretching the skin can prematurely weaken the collagen fibers, we designed the Clarisonic to work within the safe zone of skin’s elasticity, where collagen is able to spring back and recover easily.
The graph allows you see how the Clarisonic works with your skin, not against it. What happens to your skin in region three of the skin elasticity graph? Share with us in the comments to be entered in our weekday Mia Giveaways!
