There are many types of acne and with each type comes different courses of action. In theis week’t Ask Dr. Robb he answers who should use the Acne Clarifying Collection.
The Acne Clarifying Collection pairs the power of Clarisonic’s patented sonic technology with our Acne Cleansing Brush Head and Acne Daily Clarifying Cleanser, this collection simplifies and improves the cleansing process. In one easy step that’s safe and gentle enough for use twice daily, you can remove dirt, oil and impurities more thoroughly—and begin to treat acne blemishes.
Dr. Robb says, we recommend that you don’t use the Clarisonic if you have any open wounds. It’s just not smart to put cleansers and bristles into those areas. If you have mild to moderate acne it is great to use. People that even take medicines like acne medication go ahead and use the Clarisonic to cleanse the skin. The Clarisonic is very gentle and shouldn’t cause you any trouble. But always check with your skin care professional if you are taking any kind of medication for acne.
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.
