Why You Need a Facial Cleansing Brush If You Have Acne

Why You Need a Facial Cleansing Brush If You Have Acne

Posted in Acne At Home Treatments by . | Leave a Comment
Facial cleansing brushes, such as the Clarisonic brush, have increased in popularity substantially over the past few years.  It's hard not to notice all of the advertising trying to convince you to jump on the cleansing brush bandwagon.  What many of the ads don't specify, and your dermatologist can easily answer for you, is why you need a facial cleansing brush if you have acne.  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Facial cleansing brushes work by a mechanism of sonic oscillation of more than 300 movements each second.  This action allows cleansing brushes to clean out your pores more thoroughly than traditional cleanser and washcloth face washing." Acne forms by a variety of factors that work together to produce the undesirable result.  A key part of acne formation is the formation of a microcomedone in the follicle when the follicle is clogged by excess sebum and debris.  As a result, the acne-causing bacteria is attracted to the follicle and acne lesions may develop.  The Clarisonic, and other cleansing brushes, block this portion of the acne formation cascade by cleaning out the skin's follicles better than traditional cleansing.  In studies completed by Clarisonic, six times more makeup was removed with the Clarisonic brush than by traditional cleansing.  Additionally, the Clarisonic is exfoliating, meaning that anti-acne products may be better absorbed to the skin after its use, and your skin will appear brighter and healthier with regular use. At the Clear Clinic, we feel that all of our acne patients can benefit from the use of a Clarisonic brush, in addition to their regular acne regimen.
