The last few weeks I had the chance to review one of the newest and most hi- tech beauty devices out on the market today. The Ziip Nano Current Device was developed by Melanie Simon an electrical esthetician. The device looks like a super fancy computer mouse that with the aid of the app through your iPhone/ipad offers up 6 different treatments “electrical cocktails” depending on your skin goals.
The technology behind Ziip is that it sends tiny electrical wavelengths deep below the surface of the skin and depending on the setting will deliver different results. When set on low it breaks down dirt and bacteria in the skin to help get rid of acne. My favorite treatment was the “vitaleyes”. The 2 to 4 minute treatment, I did the 4, really helps with dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.
For sensitive skin and for 1st time users the “sensitive energize” treatment is a gentle 12 minute ant- aging treatment. For men who don’t want to spend much time on their face, the 2 minute treatment, twice a week is perfect to help reduce dark circles, fine lines and tighten pores.
The first step is to prepare the face for treatment. The Golden Conductive Gel Treatment, which feels like petroleum jelly, has to be applied liberally before you glide the Ziip device over your face and neck. Time depends on treatment selected. It is recommended to use the Ziip 1 to 3 times a week and the results are cumulative.
After a few weeks of use I find that my pores are tighter, skin definitely looks brighter and my under eye area is way less puffy. It is on the pricey side but worth it and makes a great gift for mothers day. $495 Where To Buy
