Zapping Your Zits

Jan 1, 2008
When it comes to diagnosed skin disorders there is no question that acne tops the list. Although very popular in teenagers, many adults are realizing that just because they turn 18 or even 21 the acne just doesn't want to go away. The older adults get the more embarrassed and ashamed of their acne they are and they try every which way to get clearer skin. Whether you are in the classroom or the boardroom the fact of the matter is that acne is just not a confidence booster at any age.

There is a new weapon against acne that was unveiled last June by the FDA to treat mild to moderate acne. It is designed for home use, and should only be used once you have tried many "home" remedies such as adding more vitamins and minerals to your everyday diet. Zeno is the name of this acne treatment and it is relatively easy to use. About the size of your iPod, Zeno uses a controlled dose of heat to kill your P. acnes which is the bacteria that causes acne breakouts. In a study that was done before Zeno was released, in as little as 24 hours most blemishes disappeared. What is great about Zeno is that it does not require a prescription and is being sold at both medical offices and salons that deal with acne and blemish breakouts.

What dermatologists want you to realize is that Zeno is not a cure or replacement for good skin care which means eating and taking the proper vitamins that naturally give you clearer skin. Along with the vitamins you should have a good regimen of cleaning your skin with the proper anti-acne washes and soaps.

Before using Zeno you should consult a doctor to make sure you have the type of acne that can be removed by using Zeno because there are much more active forms of acne that simply cannot be removed just by using heat. Acne is more about your genetics, hormones, and your diet that can clog pores then actual medical problems. It is also in the way that you clean your face and the general oiliness that your skin deals with on a regular basis. That is why Zeno is so effective on most mild to moderate acne problems.

Zeno should be used along with regular treatments because nothing is foolproof although it does show that it can work effectively if you put in the effort. Note that Zeno can require 1-2 minutes of application per pimple, multiple times per day. This may make it a difficult solution if your acne is more serious. Again, it should be used along with the proper acne vitamins that you can get from a healthier diet, as well as vitamin supplements that are specifically made to treat acne and to give you clear skin. Along with drinking lots of water as well Zeno can be an excellent alternative to showing up to work everyday with large pimples that make you just want to crawl back into bed.
