Paying a visit to your dermatologist or plastic surgeon for a treatment tends to be an expensive decision, and it often feels like it’s only a matter of time before life takes its toll and you’re back in that chair for another round. While there are really no at-home alternatives that compare to procedures like Botox, fillers, CO2 lasers, brow lifts, and facelifts, thanks to technological advancements, there are a number of devices that can help maintain and even extend the results of in-office treatments. These are the LED masks, microneedling-inspired rollers, and product infusers pros recommend for healthy skin in-between visits.
Developed by LA esthetician to the stars Melanie Simon, Ziip is a small, handheld device that uses tiny electric currents to offer nine different facial treatments that address a number of skin concerns. Electrotherapy has been an important tool in the facial arsenal for the last five decades, and it’s been used to treat cellulite, tighten muscles, and drain excess fluid from the lymph nodes, but Ziip uses microcurrents specifically to stimulate ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production, a driving force for collagen and elastin. Through the supporting app, users select their treatment based on their desired results. For an immediate lift and tone, choose “Instant Gratification”; for lymphatic drainage and facial sculpting, try “Lymph and Lift”; for troubling acne, go for “Total Clearing”; and for stubborn hyperpigmentation spots, select “Pigment.”
