  • 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!

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Can I use my Clarisonic with Retin-A?

    Clarisonic is safe for everyday use, but can it be used along with Retin-A or another chemical exfoliant? Dr. Robb gives us the answer in today’s video!

    Dr. Robb says it depends on your skin type, some people can, and some people can’t. Remember those are chemical exfoliates removing the outer layers of the skin to give you the new healthier skin that lies below. Just listen to your skin as you are using it. The Clarisonic is perfectly safe to use every day, but when you use topicals that are using a chemical exfoliate for your skin; your skin may say, “Hold off for a while” but normally, every day is fine.

    Have you ever used a chemical exfoliant like Retin-A along with the Clarisonic? Tell us below!

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Is the Clarisonic safe to use with Accutane?

    Dr. Robb answers Karen from Facebook’s question about using the Clarisonic with a prescribed skincare routine such as Accutane. Find out what Dr. Robb suggests in the video below!

    Dr. Robb says that it’s up to your skin care provider to tell you if it is safe to use your Clarisonic if you are using Accutane. But we do know there are a lot of people who are on Accutane and they can use the Clarisonic on a daily basis.  We designed the Clarisonic to be gentle and effective even for people who have rosacea and acne rosacea ; but check with your skin care provider.

  • 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.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Is daily use okay?

    Dr. Robb answers a question from Clarisonic fan, Gwen, regarding daily use of the Clarisonic.  Some people wonder if the Clarisonic can or should be used daily. Watch the below video featuring our very own Dr. Robb to find out!

    Dr. Robb says we designed the Clarisonic to be used twice a day. We know that it is safe and gentle for that. There are some people that only like to use it in the morning or the evening; it’s really up to you. But daily use is fine. Remember, Clarisonic is Sonic Technology for cleansing your skin; this is not microdermabrasion so you can do it every day if you like to.

  • Ask Dr. Robb: Is the Clarisonic helpful with sun-damaged skin and should pressure be used?

    Dr. Robb answers Rock Newton’s question about Clarisonic results with sun damaged skin and how much pressure should be used when using the Clarisonic. If you have ever wondered if the Clarisonic helps with sun damaged skin and how much pressure you should use when using the Clarisonic, watch the below video featuring our very own Dr. Robb.

    Dr. Robb says: Use sunscreen everyday even if it’s a cloudy day. The Clarisonic is good for smoothing the skin and softening the skin. It allows the other products to go on better, so if you want to use some of the hyperpigmentation products that have acids that’s great. But for getting your skin soft and smooth there is nothing better than the Clarisonic.

    People think it is about scrubbing. What you should do is let the Clarisonic ride on the top of your skin, don’t scrub because if you push too hard, the bristles stop working. We actually built that safety mechanism in.

    Congratulations to Rock Newton Mason who has won a Clarisonic Mia for submitting this question!
