What's the Deal with Pimple Zappers?
Are Pimple Zappers Worth the Price?
People are desperate to get rid of their pimples when the little buggers pop up, which is why pimple zappers have become so popular over the past couple of years. The question is, are these pimple zappers safe, do they work and are they worth the price? If you've been thinking about buying a pimple zapper, there are some things you need to know.
What are Pimple Zappers?
So what exactly are pimple zappers? Pimple zappers are spot treatment devices that use heat to destroy pimples. The devices put heat on the pimples, which kill the bacteria under the skin and get rid of their blemishes at the core.
Do They Work?
Yes, pimple zappers work. Well, the good ones do. There are cheap imitation pimple zappers on the market, but remember that you get what you pay for. And don't expect the pimple zapper to make your zits disappear like a magic eraser. Even with a pimple zapper, it will take a day or two to get rid of a blemish.
Does It Hurt?
Zit zappers aren't exactly comfortable (the heat can get a bit intense) but it doesn't really hurt. In my experience, the more pressure and pain that the zit seems to be causing, the more intense the heat from the zit zapper will seem.
How Much Do Pimple Zappers Cost?
There are different pimple zappers on the market and how much you spend will depend on which brand and model you buy. The two most popular pimple zappers on the market right now are Zeno and ThermaClear. You can get a ThermaClear unit for about $150 and the basic Zeno model for about the same price.
Just remember, not everyone's skin is the same. Zit zappers do work for many acne sufferers, but some people won't benefit from the treatment. The only way to tell for sure is to try it out and see how your skin reacts.
