I just invested in the Tanda Zap by Tanda, the maker of several different light and pulse therapy products.
I invested in the product because I have been struggling with acne for about 2 years now, and I wanted to purchase a product that would not interfere with my dermatologist's prescriptions.
How It Works:
Tanda Zap uses a blue LED light (like the ones found in spas that treat acne) in combination with a pulse (vibration) at concentrates on the affected area for a 2 minute period. See the illustration below for how the light kills bacteria
For $49 (which is considerably less than Zeno at $149) you get 1,000 two-minute uses. You need to treat the affected area with the Tanda Zap 2-3 times per day until the blemish subsides.
I've used it for two days so far and I have already noticed a difference, I had a blemish yesterday that is totally gone today!
You can order direct from Tanda
But the Zap is also available at Sephora (who also carries it in a limited edition pink shade online)
For those with more severe acne problems, there is the Tanda Clear
Which is $195 and has a larger surface area and longer life.
What I Love About This Product:
-It is so easy to use, it auto shuts off after the treatment is done
-It is small, which makes it portable
-It can attach to a key chain, to ensure that you have it with you on the go, whenever a pimple may strike
-The price is so reasonable. This of it this way, your Insurance Co-Pay for the Dermatologist is probably $25, that equals 2 visits! So cheap!
