Yes, all of the Clarisonic brushes are interchangeable with each other. I have used several different types of cleansers with my Mia and I haven't had any problems changing them out. It doesn't matter whether you are using a lotion, gel, cream or a scrub with these brushes. They've all worked just fine with mine. And I believe that the only way you are going to wear these brushes out is through lots of regular use.

The sensitive is softer bristles. If you have a problem with products irritating you skin then the sensitive would probably be the best choice.

If you have sensitive skin that gets irritated easily, I would recommend the sensitive. If, on the other hand, you have normal skin that doesn't react to products, etc., I would go with the normal. I prefer to use the "sensitive" brush head as I can use the Mia more often as my somewhat sensitive skin could not tolerate the normal brush (I tried it) daily!

If you have really dry and mature skin or if your skin breaks out easily (I'm talking about allergy-wise not acne-wise) from chemicals and other types of irritants, you may have what is called "sensitive skin" and you might want to buy the sensitive brush. I have very mild Rosacea, along with mature, dry skin that isn't very tolerant to many things; however, I am very gentle with my Mia and I only use it twice a week, so the normal brush works fine on my skin. The normal brush is usually recommended for younger skin or acnegenic skin. Honestly, you can only press down so hard on a Mia, so as long as you don't use it too often or too roughly on your skin, the normal brush should be okay. If I had purchased the larger Clarisonic model rather than the Mia, I would only use the sensitive brush because I think the regular Clarisonic that comes with more than one brush is probably a little stronger machine that has more buffing power than the Mia does. If you are planning on using your Mia more than three times a week, you may want to invest in a sensitive skin brush. I know that some people who have problematic skin use their Mia's up to five days a week but it isn't recommended that you use any kind of brush on your face more than three times per week. I figured that when I purchased my Mia, I would try the normal brush out first, and then, if it was too rough for my face, I could always order a sensitive brush from Skinstore. But I haven't had to do that.

I know that different countries use different sorts of amperage when it comes to electrical products but if the Clarisonic charger says it is international, it may not require a converter. Skinstore always has the manufacturer's name and a number or an email address where you could contact Clarisonic's Customer Service Department to ask them directly. Or you might get lucky with the Customer Service Reps available at Skinstore and they may be able to answer this for you without the necessity of having to get in touch with the manufacturer.

the Clarisonic will neither increase nor decrease your birthmarks and/or freckles. Consistent (every day summer and winter, cloudy or sunny, inside or outside) use of a good sunscreen may reduce the freckles over time.

I have dry and very sensitive skin plus I also have extremely mild Rosacea. While I don't have freckles or a birthmark, I do have some small, flat moles and I never have any problems with my Mia irritating my skin. Moles are always more prominent than birthmarks and freckles are, so I truly don't believe that you will have any problems using a Mia on your skin. My Mia actually improves skin's circulation and it improves the look of my skin without being harsh on it at all. I think you would be just fine using a Clarisonic Mia because it cleans gently but thoroughly without damaging your skin. If you really are concerned about the possibility of a Mia irritating your skin, you might want to consult with a Dermatologist first to get his/her opinion on it's safety. But I can't see how using a Mia on your skin could possibly damage it. I guess you could damage your skin but I believe you would have to be exceptionally rough when using a Mia or if you used a super harsh type of cleanser with it that is completely incompatible with your skin type. You should probably worry less about using a Mia two or three times a week but concentrate on selecting the correct type of cleanser to enhance your skin rather than using a cleanser with strong chemicals in it that could potentially damage your skin. However, this is my opinion and I'm not an expert when it comes to skincare. I'm simply telling you what I have experienced using a Mia for the last year and a half and I have really sensitive skin.

I hope this helps you!

I ordered the white Mia that is the smaller version because it is easier for me to hold. I think that the larger Clarisonic is a little more expensive and it also comes with more than one brush attachment. But as far as I know, the larger Clarisonic device is only made in white. Mia's are the smaller version of the Clarisonic, plus they come with one brush attachment, a charger, a tube of cleanser and you are able to choose the color you want. So yes, I'm pretty sure that the different colored Clarisonic Mia's are all basically the same machine. And as far as I know, the Mia's all come with the regular brush and not the sensitive brush. However, you can order an additional brushes from Skinstore, if you also want a sensitive skin brush for your Mia. I love my Mia... to me, it's a worthwhile investment in skincare.

I use the Mia because it is not only a smaller, less expensive version than the Clarisonic, but the Mia comes with the sensitive brush. The larger Clarisonic comes with a regular brush and a sensitive brush plus it has two speeds whereas the Mia only has one speed. I also have Rosacea and I don't have any problems at all using my Mia. In fact, using my Mia has helped my skin and that is why I bought the Mia rather than buying the regular size Clarisonic. The Mia is very gentle and effective, so I think you'll like it. Since I do have Rosacea though, I only use my Mia twice a week. I use a very gentle exfoliating scrub once a week, and the next time, I'll use a mild, sensitive skin cleanser. I've had no problems with my skin using my Mia so far and I really didn't need the bigger, more expensive Clarisonic.

I have dry, sensitive skin with very mild Rosacea because I caught it fast to keep it from becoming bad. I purchased my Mia with the sensitive skin brush and I've never had any sort of problems. In fact, my skin's circulation and overall appearance is much better since I began using my Mia twice a week with a very sensitive skin cleanser. Atopalm makes a good, gentle, sensitive facial wash that I use with my Mia, if that is helpful to you. Every so often, I also use a very mild exfoliating wash with my Mia and I still don't have any complaints. I might apply a little less pressurewhen I use an exfoliant but that's just me using common sense. Overall, I think that the Mia has actually helped improve my skin's texture and my Rosacea is barely noticeable now... that also depends on what products you select, too, so make certain you pick out gentle skincare products that are compatible with Rosacea.

The normal size Clarisonic comes with two brush heads, a regular brush and a sensitive brush. The normal size Clarisonic also comes in white and pink. The Mia only comes with the sensitive brush head and it comes in several different colors. The regular Clarisonic also has two speeds whereas the Mia only has one. And I believe that you get three different types of cleansers when you purchase the larger version of the Clarisonic since it costs more money than the Mia.

The Mia and the standard Clarisonic have three basic differences, including: (1) timed intervals, (2) charging, and (3) pulse speed.

First, unlike the standard Clarisonic, the Mia does not beep at intervals to inform you when to switch to another area of your face. The Mia remains "pulsing" for one minute, without intervals. Second, the length of the charge varies. Mia holds a charge for twenty minutes, while the standard lasts fo thirty minutes. In my opinion, charging the Mia is more convenient.. Rather than a large charging cradle, the Mia has a smaller charger that magnetically attaches itself to the device. Third, the Mia only has one "pulse" setting, while the standard Clarisonic has two. For me, this has not been a problem.

Yes, the Mia does work just as well and I have been very happy with it. The only thing I missed at first was the fact that the Mia doesn't beep, signaling when to move on to another area of the face, as the larger unit does. Also, it has a one year warranty instead of the two year ( that concerns me a little), but I still love the Mia and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Yes, the regular Clarisonic and the Mia both help clean out your pores and unclog them. You could always warm up a bowl of water in the microwave to help steam your pores open and then the brush could really get down into your pores if you have blackheads, whiteheads or patches of dry skin that need to be removed. The Mia is powerful enough to dislodge those nasty things and using an exfoliating scrub twice a week with your Mia should help your skin even more. If you do shower or wash your face with warm water, always close your pores back up with cool water or use an astrigent. It's okay to give yourself a facial with steam but Dermatologists do not recommend that you apply hot water to your face because it can dry your face out too much. Just remember to keep your hands and hair off of your face because they can transfer oil onto your face and that will only add to your problems. And please.... don't pick at acne of any kind because it can permanently leave scars. I think you'll see a difference in your skin if you use a Mia with a hypoallergenic acne cleanser.

After 2 days I can see a difference already in that I have fewer visible pores and less white heads. I think it works by removing the dead layer of skin and opens things up so that the pores don't get clogges as readily.
