Clarisonic PRO vs PLUS

The revolutionary cleansing system known as the Clarisonic has become a skin care staple. It is for your face, what the toothbrush is for your teeth. With so many different models now out there, how do you tell them apart?

What is the difference between the Clarisonic Pro and Clarisonic Plus?

Clarisonic Pro

To understand the difference of the different types of Clarisonics, you need to undestand the FIVE different versions that Clarisonic has created: 

  1. Clarisonic Pro
  2. Clarisonic Plus 
  3. Clarisonic Classic
  4. Clarisonic Mia 2
  5. Clarisonic Mia 

Each different type of Clarisonic comes with multiple speeds:

Type of Clarisonic Number of Speeds
Clarisonic Pro 4 speeds
Clarisonic Plus 3 speeds
Clarisonic Classic 2 speeds
Clarisonic Mia 2 2 speeds
Clarisonic Mia 1 speed

Clarisonic Pro vs Clarisonic Plus 

The Clarisonic Pro is sold exclusively to physicians. The Clarisonic Pro has a 3 year warranty. The Pro has the following speeds: low, normal, high, pro and body. The Clarisonic Pro is a 4 speed machine (the highest amount of speeds available). 

The Clarisonic Plus is sold to department stores, day spas and any non-medical professionals. The Clarisonic Plus has a 2 year warranty. The Plus has the following speeds: low, normal, high and body. The Plus is a 3 speed machine.  

Both the Clarisonic Pro and Clarisonic Plus units have a battery that holds 30 minutes of charge for the face and 20 minutes of charge for the body. The Clarisonic Pro and Clarisonic Plus hold charge for about a month. Charging your Clarisonic before a trip will alleviate the need to take your charger with you. Both the Clarisonic Pro and Clarisonic Plus units have a Universal Charging Cradle. Which means that you can take your unit anywhere in the world. 

The cost difference is about $10.00 to $20.00 from the Clarisonic Pro and the Clarisonic Plus.For a nominal amount of money you get an additional speed. 

Additional Information: 

The Clarisonic Cleansing units are perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin. In fact, sensitive skin responds well and often times the sensitivity subsides or becomes less prevalent over time. 
The Clarisonic machines were created for anti-aging, not for cleansing benefits. 

All of the Clarisonic machines are wonderful. You really cannot go wrong when choosing a unit to purchase. The biggest factor is speeds and price. That should aid in making the decision easier
