Cleansing should always be the first step in any skin care ritual. We live in a world of environmental toxins, air pollution and harsh chemicals. Many of us wear make-up daily; at the end of the day, we have a lot of dirt, toxins and bacteria sitting on the surface of the skin.
Typical cleansing with soap and water, with or with out a sponge or facecloth, can leave behind dirt and oil trapped in pores. This build-up is damaging to the health and appearance of your skin. Dirt and oils keep your skin care products from working at optimum effectiveness. At Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center, we recommend the Clarisonic Cleansing System to our clients for use twice daily. Our Esthetician Gina Torey is an enthusiastic promoter of the the Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing System, using it in her practice with clients and encouraging clients to adopt the system at home.
How It Works
The Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing Systems use a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently, yet thoroughly remove 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt and oil than cleansing with hands alone. Used daily, the Clarisonic System leaves you with cleaner, healthier skin, resulting in a more radiant and more beautiful complexion. The skin becomes smoother and releases impurities that can build up in pores. Oiliness is reduced, as are dry patches and the occurance of blemishes. Visible pores shrink and become less noticeable.
When drying detergents, pollutants, oil and bacteria are left on the skin, over time they result in free radical damage, enlarged pores, acne, and other blemishes. Using Clarisonic Sonic Skin Cleansing Systems helps to remove the impurities and clear pores before they can damage the health of your skin. And because the cleansing is done through gentle sonic motion, there are no harsh abrasives or chemicals, providing you with a gentle, natural way to cleanse your skin. Clarisonic is also safe and effective in treating and improving complicated conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, and acne.
Sonic Cleansing Notes
Clarisonic cleansing is safe for all skin types. We have several non-abrasive cleansers we recommend for use with the Clarisonic System. Apply the cleanser to the brush head and allow the micro-massage to gently scrub the surface of your skin. The round brushes make it easy to reach all the curves and angles found on the face. The gentle sonic action is effective, yet gentle enough to be used twice a day. Compared to manual cleansing, the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System encourages absorption of Vitamin C by up to 61% compared to skin that is cleansed manually. Better absorption allows creams, serums and moisturizers to work their best. Use is not limited to the face; in fact, you can use the Clarisonic Cleanser on any part of your skin. It is great for the décolleté and neck, as well as other areas of your skin needing extra care and attention.
The Clarisonic System comes with a wand, several brush heads, a sample cleanser (though we might send you home with several samples!), and a charging base. The wand is rechargeable for up to 30 minutes of use, depending on the model. It’s fully waterproof for use in the shower or tub. The brush heads can be washed with simple warm water and a mild soap. You should use your Clarisonic System twice a day for one minute each time. Yes, that’s it! Just two minutes a day and you are on the road to cleaner, healthier skin. Really, there’s no excuse for missing it!
Clarisonic conducted a four week in home use test with fifty-five female participants to evaluate the Clarisonic PLUS for Face and Body. The subjects used their own chosen body cleanser and were asked to pay close attention to cleansing areas of the body requiring extra care and attention.
At the conclusion of the four week study, 85% of participants noticed an improvement in skin texture and complexion. Improvement was also experienced in other areas of the body that required special care for smooth, pleasing skin texture and tone.
