Do Electronic Zit Zappers Work?

We've all been there. The day of the big presentation, date, or picture day and we wake up with a huge zit. What to do? Since we are Unplggd and are always looking for electronic solutions, we decided to take a look at electronic zit zappers. These hand held devices just exude promise, but do they actually deliver?

These devices claim to clear acne fast through using light or heat or both. Better for your skin than the dreaded zit pop, the zit zappers use technology to speed up the blemish clearing.

  • No!No! Skin delivers Light & Heat Energy (LHE®) technology to heal pimples 55% faster than if they were left alone.
  • Zeno Hot Spot is the smallest of the zit zappers and it uses gentle heat to destroy the bacteria that causes acne.
  • Zeno Mini like the Hot Spot from Zeno applies a precisely controlled heat dose directly to the pimple through a metal pad. One treatment lasts 2½ minutes. Two to three treatments spread over 24 hours clear up most pimples quickly.
  • Zeno Pro is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner, and is at the high end of the zip zapping spectrum. This device follows the same acne fighting protocol as the other devices from Zeno and is rechargeable.

Do you have any experience with any of these zit zappers? Do they work?
