FAQ

1.What is Sirius Sonic?    
Sirius Sonic is an innovative Sonic Skincare System consisting of a battery-powered electric handset unit, and interchangeable brush heads and applicators, which use a sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, and tone the skin.

2.Why is sonic skincare unique?    
Sonic skincare is more  effective than traditional cleansing, exfoliation and hydration methods, yet gentle on your skin.

3.How is sonic cleansing different from microdermabrasion products?    
Microdermabrasion products are abrasive to the skin and are not meant for daily use. Sirius Sonic uses sonic vibrations and the skin’s natural elasticity to clean gently and deeply, and can be used twice daily.

4.How do I use the Sonic Skincare System?    

Please refer to the
regimen page for instructions.

5.How often can the Sonic Skincare System be used?  
  
Sonic cleansing, hydration and toning can be done twice daily. Sonic exfoliation should be done twice weekly.

6.Should I apply pressure when using the device?

No. Do not apply pressure to your face when using the device. Just gently place the brush or the applicator to your face, and let it do the work. Do not scrub as this may inhibit and interfere with the oscillation and may result in less cleansing.

7.What type of cleanser, serum, moisturizer or facial scrub should I use?   
 
You can use your favorite skincare product.

8.Do I apply my skincare products to the brush or face?
You can apply them to either your face or the brush when it's not in motion.

9.Can I use the Sonic Skincare System in the shower or bathtub?    
Your Sonic Skincare System handset is waterproof for use in the shower or bathtub.

10.Can the System be used on sensitive skin?    
Yes, and the System includes both sensitive and normal brush heads. Delicate brush heads are available for the most sensitive skin types.

11.What is the difference between sensitive and normal brushes?

The sensitive brush is softer than the normal brush. If you're unsure which brush head is best for you, we recommend testing each facial brush on a small area of your skin before using it all over your face and neck.

12.Can I use the Sonic Skincare System if I have acne or if I have other skin conditions?  
  
If you are under a doctor’s care for any skin condition, or if you have or think you may have a skin condition, consult your physician.

    * have an extreme sunburn
    * have open wounds or open lesions
    * are taking medication that can cause skin sensitivity

    * have pustular acne, or serious sensitive–skin disorders and/or infections
