Question
Break outs and Purging
Today is my 10th day with this product. My skin is breaking out a lot. I am kinda freaking out not sure whether to continue or stop using this product. Somehow it gives me good feeling because apart from acne my skin has become smoother but very less positive effect on acne. Its like 1 pimple is going and 3 of them are new break outs. Please suggest whether i should stop using it or not, it might not be suitable for me.

I think the bristles are too harsh for skin that is sensitve to acne breakouts. My suggestion would be to use the Mia2 on the areas free of acne and on the acne areas to clean manually. With acne, you DO NOT want to irritate your skin further because it prolongs the healing process. I found that by gently cleaning the acne areas with a simple facewash (something with Benzoyl Peroxide) my skin was less irritated and began clearing up. Unfortunately, acne takes time to heal. We that suffer from it learn patience fast. I have dealt with acne on and off since I was 14 (23 now). My best advice is to see a dermatologist. They will give you medications that will help clear your acne for good. I did this and am now acne-free. I couldn't be more happier.

It might be an allergic reaction to the brush. Try the delicate brush head instead. But if you havent exfoliated a lot in the past, you will break out. For example, my mom thought she had clear skin, but when she went to an esthetician for the first time, she extracted pimples that had calcified deep within her skin that weren't visible if you just looked at the skin. The sonic action break up clogged pores just like sonic action is used to break up kidney stones.

Keep using it! It typically take 3 months for a new skin regimen to start to show that's it's working.

i had to use this product with a really good skin care line... try the glycolic products from peter thomas roth. if you use a lot of make up (which i used to) be sure to use a facial wash each night that has a makeup remover in it (peter thomas roth and Purity both work great). I use the glycolic moisturizer at night only and that seems to be a huge part of my face clearing up. it did take about two weeks for me to see results. my face had a horrible break out as it was purging all the impurities out. but most importantly use a good skin care line in combo with the Mia2.

i use the mia each morning and night... dont give up... i am sure clearer skin is coming...

I use mine in the shower and so does my daughter. After cleansing my face I rinse the entire unit quickly and dry lightly with a towel. I have a dish outside the shower to set it on so it dries during the day. You can pop the brushhead off periodically to check if the inside is ok.

Yes. I use mine every morning in the shower. Just make sure you put it somewhere to dry out. Letting it stay wet all the time is gross.

Question
Can I use Mia2™with my other acne products as well as the cleanser?
I understand that this system comes with its own facial wash; however, I was wondering if it would alter it's effectiveness if I used my own toner and moisturizer aside from the cleanser alone?

You can use your own cleanser as long as it does not contain exfoliants, like the small beads that many cleansers contain. These tend to get stuck in the bristles and other parts of the product, which make it work less effectively. It works best with a simple cleanser that is similar to the one it originally comes with.

I use Kate Somerville Detox Cleanser with this and it works great for me! I would think that as long as you use a quality cleanser with the clarisonic, it should work, regardless of the brand.

I use the Mia2 with my own cleanser because the one that came with it irritated my sensitive skin. The Mia2 works, I think, with any cleanser. At salons they use their own product with it too.

I was in the same situation. I never had acne problems before and then all of a sudden I started breaking out. It was horrible! My fiance bought me this mia and I started using it in combination with Philosophy Clear Days Ahead Cleanser. It started helping right away and within a month or so of consistently using the mia twice a day, my acne problems were gone. Nowadays I use the mia once a day in the shower and continue to have clear skin and no acne problems.

I love this cleanser, and I have frequent mild acne, but bad enough to make me look in the mirror and cringe, and finally I knew I had to try something new, so I gave this a try; and honestly, it is some of the best $170 I think I have ever spent. It hasn't completely cleared my acne, but it does a fantastic job of keeping my face clean (which is half the battle), and I have noticed a difference in the size, redness, frequency, etc of my acne. I think though that the cleaner it comes with isn't the best, so if you have a cleanser you like better you may want to use it, but I say give it a try. It has aided my self esteem a lot, but I still have a ways to go. Overall, my review of this product is two thumbs up.

I'm 22 with frequent breakouts as well. The Clarasonic did not clear up my acne, but it definitely improved it at least a little bit and it overall evened my skin tone and helped fade some marks.

I think you may be using the product too often. Trying using it maybe once a week or every three days and see if the breakout goes away. Also make sure you use a very good Oil free intense moisturizer. your maybe breaking out because your face is dehydrated.

I would suggest that you use it where you think it works better for eg if it works better on your cheeks then you can use it there or go slowly n light on your chin or forehead while using it DONT PRESS IT TOO HARD ON YOUR SKIN
i hope that helps !!

How long have you been using the Clarisonic? I was breaking out for about one month during first use and now my skin has been breakout free since. It takes about a month for the Clarisonic to rid your skin of all of the impurities-- they are deep down in there! You'll notice any clogged pores that you have will most likely turn into blemishes because the Clarisonic is pulling them out of your pores so you will break out until the process is done. Stick with it and Good Luck!

Mia 2 hasd a timer to guide you through forehead, chin & then each cheek & it has two speed options. Mia 1 just runs for one minuute & only has one speed.
Also the acne Mia 2 has a new head that is specifically designed for broken out skin - bristle tips are slightly different to better scrub pores gently, reducing break outs & helping current break outs heal without additional damage.

I find I don't really need to clean it because I don't use it to remove my make up - I take my make up off first, then use it. If you use it as a make up remover, just use a skin friendly soap to clean it - since it still has to go on your face after you clean the bristles. Change the head every 3 mo or so.

I wash my Clarisonic brushes frequently (depending on my usage) w/ antibacterial soap, spritz w/alcohol, and air dry - bristles up. It is important to replace your brush often, just like your toothbrush!

clarisonic recommends every 3 months.

i've been using the deep cleaning brush and in my experience around the 3 month mark the brush is less "fluffy". but it was a small difference from a brand new brush. the recommendation may stem from cleanliness issues. be sure to clean your brush weekly with an antibacterial soap (i use method hand wash).

It needs to be replaced every 3-4 months. You should wash it with an antibacterial soap every week to extend the life of the brush (and not push bacteria into your face. Ewww.)
