Zeno clears pimples in people with mild to moderate
acne. It is a hand-held, portable electronic medical
device that is clinically proven to make pimples
disappear fast. Zeno is the most scientifically
advanced and effective acne device available without
The proprietary Zeno technology triggers a heat
shock response in microorganisms that cause
skin lesions, bringing about the self-destruction
of those bacteria and allowing the skin to return
to a healthy, normal state. In the case of acne,
the P. acnes bacterium is the root cause
of 90% of all acne pimples.
Zeno™ is a simple electronic product designed
to safely heat an acne lesion to a pre-set temperature
range known to generate heat shock response. Heat
shock response is a reaction bacteria have to
heat whereby they transcript a number of genes
and activate heat-shock proteins. These heat-shock
proteins participate in the bacteria's death by
causing the bacteria to self-destruct.
Pimples occur when excess skin oil and flaking
skin plug the opening of a hair follicle and create
the ideal environment for acne bacteria to grow.
Precisely controlled heat applied for a specific
period of time causes the bacteria to self-destruct.
When the bacteria die, the pimple goes away.
Zeno applies a precisely
controlled heat dose directly to the pimple through
a metal pad.
Safe, painless, and effective acne treatment
Zeno can clear up a pimple in just hours. Two
to three 2½-minute treatments spread over
24 hours are sufficient for most pimples. Often,
only one treatment is needed. Most other medications
can take days or even weeks to work.
Patients included in our clinical trials experienced
little reaction to the low-level heat. Other than
some temporary skin redness following a treatment
cycle, no other adverse side effects were reported.
