How Does Clarisonic Works?
Unlike other spinning skincare brushes, Clarisonic works with the natural elasticity of the skin. It moves back and forth at a sonic frequency that produces hundreds of movements per second. The flexing action that is created between the outer and inner brushes will loosen the oil and dirt in your skin. In addition, it eliminates deep-seated impurities from the pores and prepares the skin for better absorption of topical treatments.
According to Dr. Robb Akridge, one of the founders of Clarisonic, “Clarisonic gently removes dead surface cells, pollution, and sebum, but not by removing multiple layers of the skin like exfoliants would,” He also added that “Clarisonic removes the dry skin, makeup, sebum, and pollution that can sometimes prohibit absorption of your skin-care products.”

What’s The Difference Between Clarisonic and Other Facial Brushes?
There are many facial brushes that are sold in the market, however, not all of them are the same. The main difference between Clarisonic and all other brushes is in its patents. The Clarisonic moves back and forth for over three hundred times per second. Other facial brushes do not have the power of the movement that Clarisonic has. The oscillating movement causes water to move off the bristles of the brush and into the pores to clean them thoroughly.
Dr. Robb Arkridge explained, “The biggest difference is Clarisonic’s patents. Clarisonic devices gently oscillate back and forth over 300 times per second at a frequency that no other device can use. This oscillation causes water to move off the bristles and into the pores to flush them clean for a patented experience that only Clarisonic provides.”
