Clarisonic Cleansing Brush

What is a cleansing brush? A cleansing brush can be used daily to clean out the dirt and oil that become trapped in pores throughout the day.  A gentle cleanser is applied to the cleansing brush and the brush is used over the surface of the skin for a few minutes.  A cleansing brush is helpful for all patients.  Those with acne-prone skin will find that it is a helpful part of their acne regimen; patients without acne-prone skin will notice improvement in the quality of their skin.
