ClearPointTM is set in a replaceable metal treatment tip that heats up to 118.5° F in two and a half minutes and is then ready to be placed on a pimple. The biocompatible tip transfers heat into the affected follicle, which creates a heat-shock response in bacteria, destroying them and clearing the area of skin.
Zeno is equipped with an internal PID controller chip that maintains a fixed temperature by adjusting its energy flow to correlate with the heat absorption of the user's skin. A digital timer controls the treatment time so that there is never any risk of damage to the skin.
Zeno should be used no more than three times per day, and it has an automatic-disconnect feature that protects users from overuse. When you first obtain Zeno, a six-hour charging process will be required before use.
If discretion is what you prefer when it comes to treating your skin ailments, Zeno's compactness commensurate with that of a cell phone or MP3 player will thrill you and ensure convenience. Zeno is a useful tool for eradicating most pimples and other wayward blemishes; however, for a more effective change, it is still best to consult a doctor or clinical aesthetician. While certainly effective in pimple reduction, take note that if you blotch easily, Zeno might not be an ideal solution for you. Additional treatment may be required in some cases.
Established in Houston, Texas, in September 2002, Tyrell, Inc., is the definitive innovator of home-based medical devices and technology focused on the treatment of skin lesions.
