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.
