REDMOND, Wash., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarisonic®, the creator of the #1 most-recommended skin cleansing device by US dermatologists,[i] announces the brand's first-global anti-aging offering—introducing Smart Profile Uplift. This ultimate 2-in-1 skincare device combines the power of Clarisonic's iconic cleansing, which cleanses skin 6x better than hands alone, with a new firming massage experience that visibly improves 15 signs of aging[ii].
Based on groundbreaking new L'Oréal skincare research, Clarisonic has discovered a unique sonic frequency that delivers new skin firming benefits. This specific frequency, coupled with Smart Profile Uplift's specially designed silicon Firming Massage Head, produces 27,000 micro-firming massages over three minutes. In a clinical test, 12 weeks of twice daily use of Smart Profile Uplift with a placebo cream (without anti-aging actives) showed visible improvement of 15 signs of aging, especially with wrinkles, firmness and radiance. Smart Profile Uplift also boosts the absorption of daily skincare[iii], including anti-aging creams, emolliating serums and oils.
When using both the Smart Profile Uplift's Revitalizing Cleanse Brush Head and the Firming Massage Head twice daily over a 12-week period, initial improvements to the look and feel of skin[ii,iii,iv] include:
1 use—Facial fine lines are visibly reduced and your moisturizer feels like it absorbs better
1 week—Skin looks more radiant
2 weeks—Skin feels healthier and younger
4 weeks—Pores appear smaller and skin feels addictively smooth
By 12 weeks of twice daily use, there is visible improvement of 15 signs of aging on face, neck and décolleté including sagging, wrinkles, firmness, radiance, smoothness and more.
Clarisonic cofounder Dr. Robb Akridge notes, "The power of Clarisonic cleansing with this new skin firming breakthrough gives our customers the ability to cleanse and firm all in one device. Smart Profile Uplift is our most advanced device system and will soon be an essential tool for those of us who care about clean and youthful-looking skin."
Using Clarisonic's smart microchip technology, this device automatically adjusts to the optimal cleansing or firming frequency needed for each brush and massage head included in the Smart Profile Uplift set:
The new Revitalizing Cleanse Brush Head is ideal for gently and thoroughly cleansing skin 6x better than hands alone, minimizing the appearance of fine dry lines and pores. In consumer studies, 100% of people thought the bristles felt soft and 89% felt skin was rejuvenated after just one week. Use 80 seconds, twice daily, on face and neck.
The new Firming Massage Head has a patent-pending design that is shaped to glide effortlessly over contours, smoothing the look of fine lines and wrinkles over time with its unique and pleasurable micro-firming massage. In consumer studies, 92% thought their skin felt more moisturized. Use in 60 second micro-routines in chosen areas or utilize the full 3-minute routine, twice daily, over face, neck and décolleté.
The Turbo Massage Body Brush Head is designed to cleanse, massage and exfoliate the body to reveal softer, smoother skin. Perfect for targeting extra dry, dull areas like elbows and knees, as well as to prep for a closer shave or self-tanner application. Use 3 minutes, as often as preferred, on body.
The Smart Profile Uplift set retails for $349 and is available now at Clarisonic.com and skincare professionals and will launch in mid-March at Sephora.com. Existing Smart Profile device owners can purchase the Firming Massage Head separately for $54.
