Kiwanis Club of Dougherty County members got a look at some of the latest in skin-care technology at their January 16 meeting. Kathy Hedrick (left) and Whitney McDowell of the Albany Mall Dillard’s department store staff provided a demonstration of Clarisonic cleansing equipment now available at Dillard’s in advance of a demonstration-by-appointment event on January 28 at the store. Clarisonic was designed by the developers of the Sonicare toothbrush, and cleans the skin with a soft and gentle oscillating brush that moves back and forth 300 times per second, resulting in better product absorption and reduction of oily areas and dry patches. It is also touted to remove six times more makeup and twice as much dirt and oil than manual cleansing.
According to promotional materials provided, “Using Clarisonic as part of a skin-care regimen, patients reported improvement in firmness, tightness, elasticity, appearance of skin, and evenness of skin tone. They also reported improvement over manual cleansing in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, softness and pore size.” While Clarisonic would appear to appeal primarily to women, Hedrick noted that men can benefit from it as well because using it will result in softer whiskers and a cleaner, closer face shave.
