What is the Sonic Mini®?

How do I use the Sonic Mini®?
Press the power button once for the low speed gentle mode. Press the power button again for the faster, stronger mode. Press the button a third time to power off the unit. The indicator light will turn on when the device powers on and will flash when the unit needs to be charged. The Sonic Mini® will automatically turn off after being on for 5 minutes.
How do I attach and remove the brush head from my Sonic Mini®?
The brush head attachment simply clicks in and out of the Sonic Mini®. Grasp the brush attachment directly to pull out. Avoid pulling/pushing it from an angle.
What’s the recommended routine for the Sonic Mini®?
We recommend cleansing with the Sonic Mini® for one minute twice a day, once in the morning and once at nighttime. When cleansing, apply cleanser directly to moistened skin with lukewarm water or a damp brush head. Move the brush head in circular motions all over the face. After one minute of cleansing, power the Sonic Mini® off, rinse off any residue with water and follow-up with your usual skin care routine. After cleansing, rinse the brush, shake out excess moisture, and place to dry in a ventilated location.
Can I use the Sonic Mini® in the shower?
Yes. The Sonic Mini® is water resistant and suitable for use in the shower. However we strongly suggest keeping the recharging port dry at all times.
How do I clean my Sonic Mini®?
It is recommended to remove the brush attachment from the device first and then wash the brush attachment every week with warm soapy water. Leave the attachment to dry naturally after washing before using it again. We strongly recommend keeping the recharging port on the device dry at all times.
Can I use the Sonic Mini® if I have acne?
The Sonic Mini® can be used, however we strongly recommend avoiding passing over areas with active breakouts.

A full charge on the Sonic Mini® can last up to 5 hours of usage. When the main unit needs to be charged, the indicator will flash as a reminder.

How do I know when my Sonic Mini® is done charging?
During the charging process, the indicator light will flash intermittently. The indicator light will remain on once the Sonic Mini® is fully charged.

Why is my face breaking out?
The Sonic Mini® promotes skin cell regeneration and as a result, it may cause slight breakout for a short period of time. This is known as skin purging or transient acne. It is a period of adjustment to the stimulating effect the device has. This should subside in a few days as the skin calms down.
Can you use the Sonic Mini® with Rosacea?
We recommend that if you have a skin condition, you should consult with your health care professional before use.
