I’ve been dealing with acne and reviewing acne products for YEARS (I am not even kidding). I was super excited when the Zeno Pro came out, because heat treatment (in the form of hot compresses) really does work, especially on cystic acne. In case you didn’t hear / read about it, the Zeno Pro was supposed to kill the bacteria in your pimple by heating it up. I’ve been using the Zeno Pro for five years, and it really does work!
Here’s the deal: Zeno Pro Acne Clearing Device really did work, and I’m super disappointed that the company went out of business. You can still get Zeno products on Amazon or eBay, but since the company is no longer selling them, they are becoming more and more expensive (like, $195 for a product that used to be $99– yikes!). Then there’s the problem of the “replacement tips” you have to buy: each one of the tips only lasts for 60 – 90 treatments. That means that even if you get an overpriced one while you still can on Amazon, you will still have to scrounge and overpay for the replacement parts in the future. Not a permanent solution at all! Also, DO NOT BUY the Zeno Hot Spot if you see it around. I went through several of those, and each and every one of them quit working after one or two uses. Not worth the money, bad for the environment (you have to throw it away when you’re done using it), and kind of expensive when you consider dollars to number of treatments.
Anyhow, after a brief period of denial and trying to buy up all the Zeno Pros and tips I could get my hands on, I finally ordered a Tanda Zap and have been trying it out. In case you haven’t heard of it yet, Tanda Zap is a new acne-clearing device that works in a slightly different way. It clears your acne by killing bacteria with a combination of heat and blue light. I’ve been using it for a week, and I have been pleasantly surprised at the results. Tanda Zap actually did something that Zeno could never do, which was to stop a cystic pimple from fully forming. If you have cystic acne, you know what a big deal that is!
I’m going to do a review video after I’ve been using it a little longer, just so I can give you all the best ins and outs of the device. I like it so far, and the price is definitely right (around $35 for seemingly unlimited uses). The company says it doesn’t work on cystic, but I’ve found that it does, and several reviewers on Amazon agree with my assessment.
I would say if you were a fan of the Zeno Pro Acne Clearing Device, it is definitely worth it to make the switch to the Tanda Zap. I guess it’s time for us to agree that we’re not going to be able to get Zenos anymore, so we’ll have to find something!
Another important point: I have not had to use either device as much since I started using Broda. They have a free trial, so go over and try it!
