WHAT IS ZIIP?
ZIIP’s mission is to strike beyond the boundaries of skincare. As the first-ever app-connected beauty device, they have patented and pioneered the ways in which technology, sophisticated programming, and electrical currents can be incorporated into an at-home tool. It is the nexus of your new routine—a device that is there to meet (almost) every one of your needs.
From beauty editors to A-list celebrities, this much adorned device is transforming the complexions of beauty lovers worldwide. The device’s most famous fan is Kim Kardashian, who recently raved about the device on her much loved app and Huda Kattan (AKA Huda Beauty) who shared the device on her blog. The complexion transforming device has also received accolades from a plethora of world renowned magazines, such as ELLE, Allure, VOGUE and Cosmopolitan.
ELLE recently named ZIIP’s founder, Melanie Simon, as their ‘Microcurrent Maestro’ in their 2018 Beauty Genius Awards. Find out more in the video below, featuring Melanie.
HOW DOES ZIIP WORK?
Think of your ZIIP as an exquisitely beautiful battery that creates a circuit with your skin. It is able to send nanocurrents and microcurrents of varying waveforms to increase cell energy, communication, and repair. The electrical currents it uses has been shown to increase ATP, or Adenosine Triphosphate, in skin cells. ATP is a naturally-occurring molecule that provides cells and muscles with usable energy. As we age, the amount of ATP available to us at any given time decreases. When the skin has access to more ATP (it has been shown that low levels of electricity can increase your rate of ATP by up to 500 percent), it can create more collagen and elastin as well as help the skin heal from the inside out.
This tiny device recreates a professional facial in the comfort of your home, energising and tightening your face with a soothing electrical charge. Giving you visible results from the first use, this dynamic beauty tool is set to revolutionise your skincare routine.
For best results, we recommend using the device 1-3 times per week depending on your treatment plan.
WHAT DOES THE ZIIP APP DO?
The ZIIP app, which is available for free in the App and Google Play stores, allows you to instantaneously and wirelessly send different electrical treatments to your device at any time, from anywhere in the world. Using one of the seven electrical treatments, you can sculpt without surgery, contour cheekbones and jawline, make eyes look more awake, kill bacteria from oncoming pimples, decrease pigment production, and increase lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. Step-by-step videos, accessible in the app, let you follow along with each treatment.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE ZIIP GELS?
There are two options to choose from when it comes to the conductive gels recommended to be used with the ZIIP device. The device comes with the Golden Gel, however you can purchase the Silver Gel separately. Both gels conduct current identically and can be used with any one of the ZIIP Electrical Treatments. The difference is in the skincare needs they target. Use the Golden Gel if your main concerns are firmness, sagging, and lines and use the Silver Gel if your main concerns are hydration and brightening. Or alternate them.
