Fantastic news! Here’s some more: Your ZIIP comes fully charged. Download our app for free from the App Store or the Google Play Store to have access to all of our electrical treatments.
How do I start my first treatment?
First, wash and dry your face. Then apply a generous amount of conductive gel (We recommend 9 pumps to cover your entire face and neck). Make sure you have the most up-to-date version of our app, which you can download for free from the App Store or the Google Play Store. Open your app and tap Select a New Treatment. Choose one, sync it, and ZIIP! Our founder Melanie Simon will walk you through each treatment with step-by-step videos accessible within our app. You can also find them here and on YouTube.
How do I turn on my device?
Press the circular button on top of the ZIIP device. It will beep once to let you know it is on. All lights will briefly flash and go out, waiting for you to make contact with your skin.
What do the beeps mean?
1 beep = on* 2 beeps = off 3 beeps = A new treatment has been successfully downloaded from the ZIIP App. *There is also 1 beep during a treatment to indicate that it is halfway done.
Will my ZIIP turn off automatically?
After completing a treatment, or after 5 minutes of inactivity, your device will automatically beep twice and turn off.
How do I know when to charge my ZIIP?
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.
Note: The orange light will flash momentarily anytime the device is turned on. This is not an indication that your ZIIP needs to be charged.
What comes in my ZIIP kit?
1 ZIIP device, 1 Conductive Gel pump bottle, 1 USB charging cable, 1 padded travel bag, 1 cleaning cloth, and 1 user guide.
Should I get the ZIIP GX or ZIIP OX?
We highly recommend checking out our quiz to see which ZIIP (GX or OX) is best for you.
The good news is that both the ZIIP GX and ZIIP OX offer access to all of the treatments via the ZIIP App.
The ZIIP GX comes pre-loaded with Energize and includes our Golden Gel. Golden Gel promotes collagen production, cellular repair & wrinkle reduction, and is an all-around youth-preserving formulation.
The ZIIP OX comes pre-loaded with Lymph & Lift and includes a bottle of Crystal Gel, which is made with organic ingredients, and delivers radiance and repair actives deep within the skin.
THE ZIIP DEVICE
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 electrical currents that can increase cell energy, communication, and repair. ZIIP uses electrical currents that have 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 heal the skin from the inside out.
How many times a week can I use ZIIP?
For best results, we recommend using your ZIIP 3 times per week, with a maximum of 6 times per week. Many programs can be used every day, or twice in one day. However, we do recommend using Total Clearing or Pigment a maximum of 3 times weekly, which comes out to every other day. Our general recommendations for each Electrical Treatment are:
PRIMER: use at the start every ZIIP treatment session ENERGIZE: 3X/week LYMPH & LIFT: 2-3X/week SENSITIVE ENERGIZE: 3X/week INSTANT GRATIFICATION: 3X/week PIGMENT: 3X/week TOTAL CLEARING: Use as needed. Do not exceed more than 1X/24-hour period or 3X weekly. QUICK FIX: 3-5X/week VITALEYES: 3X/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. The Total Clearing and Pigment programs should be used a maximum of 3 times weekly, which comes out to every other day.
Is ZIIP FDA-cleared?
Yes! ZIIP is FDA-cleared to help beautify your skin safely.
How is ZIIP different from other at-home devices?
We’re happy to share some of the ways we think ZIIP is unique:
ZIIP utilizes several different types of electrical current to treat a wide variety of skin care needs. This includes nanocurrent, a gentle electrical current that gives longer-lasting, cumulative results. We spent nearly a decade researching how each specific wavelength best treats different skin concerns, so you can trust that all 9 of our Electrical Treatments are designed to deliver major results.
Using our app, which is available for free in the App Store and Google Play store, you will have access to 9 different Electrical Treatments you can send to your device at anytime, from a full facial to targeted options for acne, pigment, eyes, and more. The treatments are completely unlimited, so you can sync them as often as you like.
One more thing! We put tons of love into our conductive gels. They are there to conduct electricity safely and effectively but they also double as powerful treatment masques.
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.
What is the differences between the ZIIP GX and ZIIP OX devices?
Outwardly, the devices look slightly different: ZIIP OX has a silver band and details, while ZIIP GX has a gold band and details. The ZIIP OX kit comes with a full-size bottle of Crystal Gel and is pre-loaded with the Lymph & Lift treatment; the ZIIP GX kit comes with a full-size bottle of Golden Gel and is pre-loaded with the Energize treatment. BOTH have access to ALL of the treatments ZIIP offers via the ZIIP App.
CAN I ZIIP IF...
Can I use ZIIP after cosmetic injections and/or laser treatments?
Yes, but we recommend waiting 10 days after receiving an injectable or laser procedure before using ZIIP. Please consult your physician with further questions.
Can I use ZIIP if I have dental implants/braces?
Yes, 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 while pregnant or breastfeeding?
We recommend that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding do not use ZIIP, as the relationship between electricity and pregnancy is unclear. Please consult your physician for more information.
Can I use ZIIP if I have epilepsy?
ZIIP is not recommended for those with epilepsy. Please consult your physician for more information.
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. If you do not have areas of redness around the eyes, you can also use the VitalEyes treatment. 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 as you may feel a "zinging" sensation if the probe touches anything metal.
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 electrical treatments to avoid those areas, or use the Quick Fix or VitalEyes electrical treatments, which do not include the lower face and jaw area.
What treatments do you offer?
Our electrical treatments are designed to evolve with you and your skin. We currently offer 9 treatments, each of which uses different types of electrical current and different waveforms to accomplish different things. Our treatments are: PRIMER, ENERGIZE, LYMPH & LIFT, SENSITIVE ENERGIZE, INSTANT GRATIFICATION, PIGMENT, TOTAL CLEARING, QUICK FIX, VITALEYES
How do I choose a treatment?
To maximize your results, we recommend starting every ZIIP session with Primer. For all-over face + neck sculpting, choose Energize, Sensitive Energize, or Instant Gratification. For lymphatic drainage, use Lymph & Lift.
For targeted treatments, there’s Total Clearing for acne, Pigment to address spots, and VitalEyes to wake up the eye area. When you only have two minutes to spare, go straight to Quick Fix.
Can I do more than one treatment at a time?
Yes, please. Our Electrical Treatments use different waveforms to do different things. We recommend starting with Primer, then continuing with Energize, Lymph & Lift, Sensitive Energize, Instant Gratification or VitalEyes. End with Total Clearing, Pigment, or Quick Fix.
How do I know when to move the ZIIP to a new location of the face?
ZIIP will gently vibrate every few seconds during treatment to notify you when it is time to move from one location to the next.
How often should I do each treatment?
Our recommendations for each Electrical Treatment are: PRIMER: Use at the start of every ZIIP treatment session. ENERGIZE: 3X/week LYMPH & LIFT: 2-3X/week SENSITIVE ENERGIZE: 3X/week INSTANT GRATIFICATION: 3X/week PIGMENT: 3X/week TOTAL CLEARING: Use as needed. Do not exceed more than 1X/24-hour period 3X weekly. QUICK FIX: 3-5X/week VITALEYES: 3X/week
When will I see results?
Most users see some immediate results after 1 treatment. However, it depends on your skin, your concerns, and your usage. Users choosing ZIIP for anti-aging purposes using at the minimum recommended use, see results in about 3 to 4 weeks. Anti-acne users will see spots healing in as few as 3 treatments. Anti-pigmentation users will see spots beginning to fade with regular use after about 3 weeks.
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, and providing results that last about 48 to 72 hours.

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 sealable, padded travel bag that comes with your device.
Troubleshooting & Technical Support
How can I be sure my ZIIP is working?
When ZIIP makes contact with your skin, white lights on the bottom of the device will illuminate to reveal that there is a circuit of electricity running through your skin.
First, make sure you apply enough conductive gel to your face and neck before every ZIIP treatment. When you see the lights, your ZIIP is working. If you don’t see the light, make sure both probes on the bottom of the device are in contact with your skin.
What if I don't feel anything when I use my ZIIP?
This is completely normal for some of our users. ZIIP's nanocurrents are very intelligent waveforms and will change their intensity over the course of treatment, particularly when going over more delicate/less fatty areas of the face. If the white lights are on when both probes are in contact with the skin, the ZIIP is delivering electrical current whether you feel it or not.
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.
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. Please contact email@example.com for more.
The probes on my ZIIP look damaged!
ZIIP should not be used if it has visible damage, including on the probes. DO NOT open, or attempt to repair your ZIIP. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further instruction.
I didn't receive a ZIIP travel bag/charger/etc. in my package.
There is often some confusion surrounding the travel bag & where it is - it's easily missed. You should find it rolled up, opposite your charging cable in the cardboard accessory tube labeled "Charge it, Clean it, Carry it." All ZIIP GX and ZIIP OX devices come with a quilted 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 email@example.com 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.
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.
Should I use golden gel, crystal gel or silver gel?
All gels will conduct ZIIP’s electrical currents identically, and can be used with the ZIIP GX and OX devices. The difference is in their additional skincare ingredients. Golden Gel is made with stimulating actives to fill and firm the skin. Crystal Gel is made with organic ingredients focused on radiance and repair. And Silver Gel has more plumping and brightening actives and is the best option for those with sensitive skin.
Does my ZIIP come with conductive gel?
Yes! Each ZIIP comes with a two-month supply of conductive gel. The ZIIP GX comes with Golden Gel; the ZIIP OX comes with Crystal Gel.

How do I apply the conductive gel?
Liberally! Apply conductive gel to the entire face, neck, and eye area. Make sure you apply gel behind your ears, around your mouth, and all the way up to your hairline.
Do I have to use conductive gel with ZIIP?
Yes, it is extremely important to use one of the ZIIP conductive gels with every treatment. Our gels have been designed to safely and effectively transfer electrical currents from the ZIIP device to your skin, and we don’t want you to miss any of them!
How long does a bottle of conductive gel last?
If you are using your ZIIP 3 times weekly, a bottle of conductive gel should last around 2 months.
Do I wash off the conductive gel?
Yes, you do wash conductive gel off after treatment. But before you do, read on!
If you've done the Primer, Energize, Lymph & Lift, Sensitive Energize, Instant Gratification, or VitalEyes electrical treatments, we highly recommend leaving the gel on for up to 20 minutes after treatment. It functions as a masque that delivers incredible active ingredients deep within the skin.
We do recommend removing the conductive gel right after the Total Clearing, Pigment, or Quick Fix programs because they use direct current that pulls debris out of the skin, and we want you to rinse that off as quickly as possible following treatment.
