Sonic technology is THE buzzword in skincare at the moment. Sonic electric toothbrushes have a loyal following for the extra “clean” feel they impart to the teeth and gums. At the same time, the Clarisonic facial cleansing brush has such a huge cult fan base that earlier this year, the mini-sized version was launched for those who can’t imagine traveling without it.
Now, the innovators behind sonic skincare have launched the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System, a palm sized device designed to ensure optimum absorption of eye serums, using the power of sonic technology. The Opal is specially designed to help build the skin’s resilience over time and prevent future damage around the eyes.
By gently tapping the skin around the eye at 125 imperceptible sonic movements per second, the Opal effectively pushes the serum further and deeper into the skin around the eyes, leaving it intensely hydrated and refreshed. What’s more, the skin retains higher levels of hydration for a longer period.
Dr. Robb Akridge and his team have performed extensive tests to accurately judge the effects and advantages of using the Opal over and above the use of fingers alone and the results are conclusive: 88% of people noticed a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while 95% reported firmer, tighter skin. “The gentle sonic vibrations infuse the serum into the upper layers of the epidermis, where it begins to work immediately. Most women reported seeing an immediate reduction in fine lines and wrinkles; and firmer, brighter, more hydrated skin in just one minute. The results typically last for hours and benefits improve over time,” says Dr. Akridge.
Easy to use with either the anti-oxidant rich Clarisonic serum it is sold with, or with an eye serum of your choice, it’s addictive once you get used to it and the effects are immediate – you will see a difference within one use and a marked visible difference within two weeks. Simply charge up the Opal, dispense a drop of serum into the applicator tip (concave in shape to stop the serum spreading away from the eyes), and simply move the device in a light circular motion around the bone of the eye.
