What is a Facial Brush and How Often Should You Use A Clarisonic Brush On Your Skin?
Electronic facial cleansing brushes have gained great popularity in the last few years. Major brands like ProActiv®, Neutrogena, and Clinique have all followed in the footsteps of the #1 selling Clarisonic.
The Clarisonic cleansing brush was originally developed for skincare professionals. After dermatologists and aestheticians discovered how much it transformed skin, they began recommending this technology to their patients. Patients flock to this product because of its ability to work with the skin’s natural elasticity by oscillating back and forth, as opposed to just rotating or vibrating. There is no pulling or discomfort associated with this tool and it can be used on all skin types, including patients with acne, mature skin, and even patients with rosacea.
Makeup, oil, and perspiration are just a few of the reasons why skin may not look as radiant as it can. “Pore-clogging irritants create an unhealthy barrier on the surface of the skin, not allowing products to work effevtively,” says Dr. Miriam Hanson, Cosmetic Dermatology expert at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. The Clarisonic removes these impurities, which improves absorption of serums and moisturizers.
Clinical results have shown that the Clarisonic cleans 6x better than hands alone and the brand’s consumer data reported that 94% had softer skin and 90% had more radiant, glowing skin.
A question that many patients ask is, “How often should I use my Clarisonic?” Those with sensitive or dry skin tend to be concerned about overuse. Clarisonic’s clinical proof reports that using it twice daily is safe and gentle for all skin types. It is recommended to use it once in the morning and once in the evening. If you forget or do not care to use it twice daily, using it once in the evening will still be beneficial.
