I already wrote a long article on why I have no faith in Baby Quasar here:

I can't possibly comment on all those "miracle devices" out there, they're popping up like mushrooms on a wet Autumn day. Collagen regeneration does not happen when you shine some blinking colored lights on your skin for a minute, or when you vibrate your skin for a minute with ultrasound.

All these devices for the home market are deliberate scams. They are produced in China for around 15 dollars a piece and they are sold for at least ten times more to gullible people who put credence to their claims of "scientific studies proving.."  and "doctors/NASA/celebrities using.."

So far, there is only one proven method for collagen/elastin regeneration, and that is by causing very small skin injuries. Apart from IPL (intense pulse light) and Laser devices used by dermatologists, there is no light device for sale to the home market that does this. I add that IPL yields a lesser result than microneedling. I haven't seen evidence that ultrasound devices work at all.

The Clarisonic only says that it cleanses the skin and makes no claim to collagen regeneration.

Some non-microneedling devices do work, and their action is based on heating up the dermis, but there is a crucial difference between heating up the dermis and cutting through it. The latter method is much better, for many reasons. One reason is that blood plasma enters the micro-injuries and provides growth factors, hormones, vitamins and nutrients at the cellular level.

I have to say I have the UK version of the Clarisonic and its a wonderful tool for exfoliating and thicking the skin.

Sounds good. Could I ask what you paid for it?

It was £32 pounds sterling.  I have been using it for 8 months and still on the 1st battery.... the Clarisonic one is about £140 pounds sterling.  My one is called Tres Sonics and I bought it from QVC.  My skin used to be very dull and pale with some thread veins before I started using and and now its got a very nice glow, very few veins and most days I can go without foundation, I just use a very light powder for the shine... my skin is mega oily.  I use it once a day in the morning.
