It has been a long history that nanotechnology professsionals use ultrasonic technology, for sample ultrasonic agitation to clean substrate surface, promote particles or molecules diffusion, and so on. Rcently It has drawn my attention that ultrasonic technolgoy has been applied to the consumer market as well. Two feature examples are the use of ultrasonic technology to clean teeth and face/skin. Philip is markting the Sonicare series (Philips Sonicare Hx5351/30 Essence, Rechargeable, Power Toothbrush, White) for teeth healthcare cleaning, and based on a similar technology, Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System  is a product to clean face and skin. Both of them have much better cleaning performance than traditional clean systems, even without using clean agent, such as tooth paste and skin cleaner liquid.  


Ultrasonic cleaning uses high frequency sound waves to agitate in a liquid, which induce cavitation bubbles  on contaminants adhering to substrates like metals, plastics, glass, rubber, and ceramics (teeth and skin as well). The ultrasonic effect also penetrate blind holes, cracks, etc so that it clean something where mechnaical polish based cleaning is not capable of. This is the fundamental mechnaism that sonicairon can thourouhgly remove all the tracned of contanmincation tighlty adhering ot embeded on to the solid surface. The use of water can be very efficient, but use of the right solvent or cleaning agent will help more. Sonication can remove all kind of contaminants, inclusinf dust, dirt, oil, pigment, grease, polishing compounds, flux agents, fingerprints, soot wax and mold release agents, biological soil like blood, and so on. It doesn’t matter what kind shape, size and material of the obejects to be cleaned. Overall ultrasonic cleaning can be used in wide range of application, inclusing our teeth and skin.

Philip’s Sonicare series use patented sonic technology, which is the #1 recommended by dentists!

Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System received very positive reviews by the actual consumers on the amazon.com.

Whether you are nanotechnology professoinal or not, it is worthy to try these tehcnologies, which used to be only used in the research lab and industries, and now available in your bath room. It is always good to be health and excited. It is always to try something new from time to time.

Nanotechnology involve so many technologies and many of them can be used in not only industry and research, but also in consummer market. It is strongly believed that nanotechnology professionals can be one of the most important innovation power force and may lead many many useful innovations, which make our life easy, healthy, safe and energy friendly.
