The Ultrasound At-Home Device Oscar-Worthy
January 28th, 2013
~Another Clarisonic winner!
Do you wish you could splurge on costly in-office dermatologist procedures, but just can't justify it. Well, the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System might give you the results you want, especially for those fine lines and crepiness around the eyes. This ultrasonic plumper, which uses a similar technology to that used in the dermatologist office, was said to be recommended to a celebrity who couldn't get to a doctor's office last year for a skin pick-me-up the morning of her Red Carpet debut. It's said to work best around the eyes where skin is the thinnest. It kneads your favorite eye product (it also comes with one, but I prefer to use my own) at 125 sonic movements per second, maximizing absorption in a way that's not possible with your finger alone. In clinical studies most women reported seeing firmer, brighter, more hydrated skin, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just one minute.
I've been trying it every morning and evening (it only takes 30-seconds per eye!) for the past few weeks and definitely have noticed less puffiness and a more awaken appearance even while I am healing a sinus infection! Results are definitely instant. Price is rather reasonable if you compare it to one in-office treatment, and reviews are mixed, but more favorable than not.
