When your device is on and the battery is low, you will see an orange light illuminated at the base of the charging port. When you do not see it, your device is fully charged and ready for use.

THE ZIIP DEVICE
When will i see results?
Most users see some immediate results after a single treatment. However, it depends on your skin, your concerns, and your usage.
How Long Do Results Last?
The more often you use your ZIIP, the more lasting the results will be. The effects of nanocurrent are cumulative, meaning that the more you use it, the more long-lasting the results will be. The effects of microcurrent are more instantaneous, providing results that last about 48 to 72 hours.
How does ZIIP work?
Think of your ZIIP as an exquisitely beautiful battery that creates a circuit with your skin. ZIIP uses both nanocurrent and microcurrent to tone, define, lift and sculpt skin, contouring the face while giving it a glowing boost. ZIIP has pioneered the use of nanocurrent, which are tiny electrical currents that are in sync with the human body. The results are long-lasting, and even the most sensitive skin types can tolerate and respond well to nanocurrent's intelligent energy.
How many times a week should I use my ZIIP?
For best results, we recommend using your ZIIP 3 times per week, with a maximum of 6 times per week.
Can i use ZIIP every day?
Almost! Daily users should rotate between different treatments, and use their ZIIP a maximum of six days out of every week, taking at least one day off to let the skin process the electrical currents.
Is ZIIP FDA-cleared?
The ZIIP device is FDA cleared for facial stimulation and is indicated for over-the-counter cosmetic use.
Where should ZIIP not be used?
ZIIP should not be used directly on top of the eye, at the center of the neck, or on the chest, breasts or groin. It should also not be used on skin that is raised, bleeding, or painful to the touch.
CAN I ZIIP IF...
Can I use ZIIP after cosmetic injections and/or laser treatments?

Can I use ZIIP if I have dental implants/braces?
There are no known issues with using ZIIP with dental implants/braces. Please consult your dentist with further questions.
Can I use ZIIP if I have a pacemaker?
ZIIP is not recommended for those with cardiac implants, such as cardiac pacemakers, implanted defibrillators/stimulators or electronic implanted devices. Please consult your doctor with further questions.
Can I use ZIIP if I have or have had cancer, or am undergoing chemotherapy?
ZIIP is not recommended for those with active cancer, or for those undergoing chemotherapy. We recommend that cancer survivors consult your physician before beginning ZIIP treatments as a matter of precaution. Please consult your physician with further questions.

Can I use ZIIP if I have Rosacea?
Yes, you can use ZIIP if you have rosacea, with a few caveats. The most compatible electrical treatment for you would be Sensitive Energize, which is all nanocurrent. Don’t use on any areas of skin that is raised, bleeding, painful to the touch, broken or excessively red. Move lightly and quickly over the areas of the face where redness is most prominent (typically center of cheeks, nose, etc.), and limit treatment to every other day. You may also want to try Silver Gel, which is a favorite among those with sensitive skin.
Can I use ZIIP with Retin-A?
Absolutely, but not at the same time. On the nights you use Retin-A, do not ZIIP. On the nights you use ZIIP, do not use Retin-A.
Can I use ZIIP with facial piercings/modifications?
Yes, ZIIP can be used with metal piercings/implants; however, the piercing area should be avoided as much as possible.
Can I use ZIIP with facial hair?
It’s best to avoid using ZIIP on areas where there is facial hair. The hair acts as a blocker to ZIIP’s electrical currents. We recommend using ZIIP on a clean-shaven face, but if you do have a beard and/or mustache, you can adjust any of the treatments to avoid those areas, or use the Quick Fix or VitalEyes, which do not include the lower face and jaw area.
1. Turn on your phone/tablet. 2. Open the ZIIP Beauty App & click "Select a new treatment." 3. Turn on your nearby ZIIP device. 4. Choose desired treatment, then click "Sync treatment." 5.

Maintenance & Care
How do I clean my ZIIP?
Wipe the ZIIP with a soft lint free cloth after use. Occasionally wipe down probes with a soft cloth misted with a bit of rubbing alcohol. Avoid getting water, other liquids, or excess conductive gel treatment inside of any part of the device, including the USB charging port. DO NOT put ZIIP in water or in the dishwasher or use abrasive cleaner or chemicals on the device.
How do I charge my ZIIP?
ZIIP comes with a standard micro USB charging cable. You can charge your ZIIP whenever it is most convenient for you. When used regularly, a full battery will last approximately 3 to 4 weeks. If during a treatment the orange light near the charging port softly flashes, finish that treatment and then fully charge your ZIIP. When your ZIIP is charging, the orange light near ZIIP's charging port will illuminate. When this light is off, your ZIIP is fully charged. When you unplug your ZIIP from the charging cable, you will need to press the power button once to turn your device off.
Can ZIIP get wet, or can I bring it into the shower?
No, your ZIIP device cannot get wet and it cannot be exposed to water or brought into the shower or bath.
Can I use my ZIIP while it is charging?
No, ZIIP cannot be used while it is charging.
How do I store my ZIIP?
Keep ZIIP stored between 32 degrees and 120 degrees, and away from water or other liquids, dampness, or debris that may get inside of the device. We recommend storing your ZIIP in the ZIIP Travel Bag that comes with your device.
Troubleshooting & Technical Support
How Can I Be Sure My ZIIP is working?
You will always know your ZIIP is working when you see lights illuminate under the device. This will happen when both silver probes come in contact with skin that has a generous amount of a conductive gel on top. If you don’t see the light, make sure the device is on and that both silver probes on the bottom of the device are in contact with your skin.
My ZIIP doesn't beep/vibrate the same time as the video tutorials do.
That's okay! Some of timing may be off due to the editing process. Please double check that you have clicked "Sync Treatment" above the videos in the ZIIP app to ensure that you are using the same treatment you're watching. Feel for the vibrations during each treatment to let you know when to move to the next area of the face or neck.
What if I don't feel anything when I use my ZIIP?
That is completely normal for some of our users. Often, nanocurrent (one of the many types of currents offered in our treatments) cannot be felt at all. As long as you see the lights illuminate under the device while it is contact with your skin, you can be sure that ZIIP is working.
How do I know when ZIIP needs a charge or has a low battery?
Please note every ZIIP device comes fully charged & ready for use right out of the box.
Every time you turn on a fully-charged ZIIP device, all of its lights -including the orange one- will briefly flash and then go out. This brief orange flash *does not* mean your device is low on its battery or needs a charge.
When ZIIP is need of a charge, which will happen after about 18 treatments, it will glow solidly orange near the tail port and stay orange. Now it’s time to charge. The orange light will shut off when you've plugged into the charger for a sufficient amount of time, alerting you that your ZIIP is now fully charged & ready for use.
Please note: ZIIP will not respond to the charger when it does not need a charge.
My ZIIP is damaged!
ZIIP should not be used if it has visible damage, or has been dropped on a hard surface. DO NOT open, or attempt to repair your ZIIP.
I didn't receive a ZIIP travel bag/charger/etc. in my package.
The ZIIP Travel Bag can sometimes be missed in the packaging. You should find it rolled up, opposite your charging cable in the cardboard accessory tube labeled "Charge it, Clean it, Carry it." All ZIIP devices come with a ZIIP Travel Bag. If you still don’t see it, we are happy to send you what you need within the continental United States. Please reach out to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text at 1-800-944-7031 so that we may assist you.
Can ZIIP be used outside of the united states?
ZIIP is dual voltage which means it can accept both 110-120V and 220V. All you'll need to charge your ZIIP internationally is a plug adaptor, also called a travel adaptor.
