  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can the Clarisonic body brush help with keratosis pilaris?

    First things first, Dr. Robb explains Keratosis Pilaris and then answers Tamica’s question about using the body brush to help with this skin condition. If you have ever wondered if the Clarisonic is suitable to use with skin conditions, watch the video to find out!

    Dr. Robb says this is commonly known as K.P. or chicken skin because it looks like a plucked chicken. People with K.P. usually get bumps on the back of the arms or the sides of the legs. The Clarisonic is great for smoothing those out, exfoliating the skin, keeping your skin soft and smooth, and then you can apply your moisturizer. Sometimes you can go to the doctors for this condition and they have certain types of acids in those moisturizers to help soften that area and keep it soft and smooth.  The Clarisonic body brush is the first step to that.

    Congratulations to Tamica Damara who has won a Clarisonic Mia for submitting this question!

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can I use my Clarisonic after cosmetic surgery?

    Going under the knife but not ready to live without your daily sonic cleanse? Dr. Robb gives you the low-down on when it’s safe to return your Clarisonic routine!

    Dr. Robb recommends that if you are having cosmetic procedures that you talk to your surgeon or dermatologist about how soon you can use the Clarisonic after your procedure. Everyone’s skin is different, everybody’s skin heals differently and you don’t want to use your Clarisonic on open wounds or freshly made incisions. So talk to your skin care professional.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Is it ok if I share my brush heads?

    In today’s video, Dr. Robb tells us why sharing your Clarisonic brush head is a little bit like sharing your tooth brush.

    Dr. Robb says, sharing a brush head is kind of gross like sharing your toothbrush. We recommend that you have your own brush head. Sharing a handle is perfectly okay, but keep your own face brush and make sure to rinse it off with a little shampoo or cleanser and it should last for months!

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Will the Opal help alleviate the look of aging around my eyes?

    Dr. Robb tells us how using the Opal to deeply hydrate the skin around your eyes can alleviate the signs of aging.

    Yes, when we invented the Clarisonic Opal, we wanted to hydrate the area around your eye better than you can with your finger.  Hydration is critical to diminish the signs of aging because as your skin loses all the moisture, it becomes dry and puffy, and you will have a lot of problems with the signs of aging. So what you want to do is use your Opal everyday twice a day to help you get the rejuvenated eye look.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Should I take my makeup off before using my Clarisonic?

    Whether your face is made up for stage or you’re an everyday beauty, this video will tell you whether you should remove your makeup before using the Clarisonic.

    Dr. Robb says it depends on how much makeup you use. If you are a professional, using stage makeup and you are in front of the cameras and your makeup is really thick and heavy, then yes, definitely remove some of it before using the Clarisonic; but for the average person, no problem.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Will I get the same results with any one of the systems?

    Do you want a Clarisonic but aren’t sure which system to buy? Dr. Robb tells us whether there are cleansing differences between the systems. For more information to help you make your decision, check out Dr. Robb’s post on the difference between the sonic cleansing systems!

    Dr. Robb says, yes you will! The technology is the same whether you have Mia or Clarisonic PLUS or PRO. They use the same Sonic Technology to oscillate your skin back and forth over 300 times a second to deeply cleanse you skin, and get your skin six times better cleansed than you can by hand.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can I use the Opal on other areas on my face?

    The first sign of aging that most people notice are eye wrinkles. These wrinkles, as well as the dark circles and bags that accompany them, may begin to appear when a person is still in their twenties and can become more noticeable with the passage of time. The Opal does wonders for the eye, but will it work on the rest of your face? See what Dr. Robb has to say in the video below!

    Yes, anywhere where you have crepey dry skin, it is also perfectly fine to use it between the eyes and around the mouth. People love the way it feels and how their skin looks after using Opal Sonic Infusion.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: What is the life expectancy of my Clarisonic?

    We know the Clarisonic is a skinvestment, so you want to make sure that your sonic system will be with you for the long-haul! In today’s video, Dr. Robb tells us how long you can expect your Clarisonic to last.

    Dr. Robb says: Believe it or not, we have a bazillion engineers here at Clarisonic that do tests on the units all the time. One of the tests they do is the “bench life test” where they plug in a Clarisonic and just let it run.  Based on those tests we know that your Clarisonic should last  3-5 years easily.

    How long have you had your Clarisonic? Let us know in the comments!
