ZIIP Beauty Device Review | Before + After Photos of My Results

I’m so excited to share this review and my before + after pictures of the ZIIP Beauty nano-current device.  Like most things related to beauty, I first came across these electrical facials on Instagram and was intrigued and wondered if the ZIIP device actually works and was worth the splurge.

I’ve always been good about getting proper sleep, drinking water and have a great skin care routine. Even still, I felt like I always looked tired.

The area under my eyes was getting a sunken look and I had permanent deep creases under each eye. For the first time in my life, I considered getting under eye fillers, but felt like there had to be a non-surgical and more affordable option

Enter nano and micro current.    


ZIIP Beauty Device Details

How ZIIP Beauty Works

Nano current devices work by sending an electrical current into your skin that mimics your body’s own electrical system

1 | The device’s currents increase your body’s production of adenosine triphosphate. ATP is the body’s most basic fuel.  ATP transports energy within cells.  

2 | The increased ATP from nano and micro current facials helps your skin produce more collagen and elastin, so it naturally plumps skin and decrease the look of wrinkles.  

3 | Cells are responsible for driving many body processes, such as muscle contraction.  Which is how nano current gives you a face lift.

Because of these results, nano-current facials are being touted as a natural alternative to botox and fillers

Other uses | Micro current has been used since the 1980’s to treat Bell’s Palsy, the sudden paralysis of muscles that causes one side of your face to droop.  Athletes also use micro current treatments to get injuries to heal more quickly.

Is ZIIP Worth the Price?

The internet was scant on details.  Eventually, I gave up trying to find reviews and just ordered to see for myself. 

My justification: the initial $500 price tag was still less than under eye fillers and botox – $700 average for under eye fillers every 6- 8 months and $400 average for botox every 3 months.

By the end of the first year, I’d save $2,500 using the ZIIP over botox and fillers.

With ZIIP facials, you only have to replace the gel.  It takes me about 6 months of daily facials to get through a bottle.  I usually wait for sales and stock up on bottles for the year.

ZIIP vs NuFace

ZIIP’s device stood out to me vs. other micro-current tools because it uses newer nano-current technology. 

I did buy both to compare and there are a few other reasons why I prefer the ZIIP over the NuFace, click here to watch side-by-side facials with both devices.

My Results

I’ve been using the ZIIP beauty device since the end of January 2019.

It took me about 6 weeks of consistent use to see results

I woke up one day for a makeup job at 5 am.  I expected things to look a little rough, but to my surprise, my under eyes looked fairly smooth and I had minimal dark circles. 

It was that early morning that made me realize that the ZIIP facials are really working!

The bags and deep creases under my eyes are gone and my forehead is as smooth as the one time I tried botox.

My jawline looks contoured and my cheekbones have definition again. My skin looks more dense and has a bounce to it again.

My upper eye lids were drooping and have lifted. My eyes look bigger as a result. 

I feel like I have my “old” face back.

Look at how much more awake and less puffy my eyes look in this “after” picture.

Is Nano-Current Safe?


Except if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or are blood thinning medications or taking aspirin regularly.  Then they are not recommended, until you give birth or have stopped the medications.

Our bodies have a mix of chemical and electrical systems.  Nano and micro current devices have a safe current that is almost identical to our bodies

How to Get Best Results with ZIIP

When you first start doing the facials, you’ll need to use it at least 5 times a week for the first 6 weeks to start seeing results.  You can use the ZIIP device to do facials for as little as 4 minutes, up to an hour.

Think of the ZIIP device like a workout for your face, just like a regular workout, you’ll need to be consistent to see long term results.

After that, you can go into “maintanence mode” and use it 2-4 times a week.

There are 10 different programs you can choose on the app. You select whichever treatment you’d like to do and the ZIIP app sends it to the device via bluetooth. It’s pretty amazing!

I’m going to be honest, you are going to want to use this every day.  The micro current facials are addicting.  I feel like I have more energy after I do them and my face feels more “awake.”

Traveling with ZIIP

In these, I had been traveling for almost 24 hours and when I woke up the next day (in Croatia, woohoo!) my eyes were so puffy and heavy, they were at half-mast. That was as far as I could open them!

In the after picture, you can see that after the 12-minute “Energize” facial:

To be honest, I think the lighting in the “after” is slightly worse and more harsh.  I could not believe my own eyes looking at these pics side-by-side.  The results are so good!

  • my eyes are fully open
  • my eyebrows also look more lifted
  • my jawline looks more contoured

I also love that the ZIIP comes with and is charged with a cable and detachable plug. It can charged via a wall charger OR by plugging the cable into a USB port.

When I am traveling internationally, I charge my ZIIP by plugging it in to my computer, so that I don’t have to worry about that country’s electric current being too strong and damaging the device.

  1. The internet does lack info on this device! Thank you for the thorough review. I just received mine for Christmas and used it today. A couple things caused me concern….along my neck it caused my mouth to pull down. I have tight muscles along my neck so it must be pulling nerves but it was crazy to see. Then at my forehead I got zapped. Like surprisingly strong pain and also middle of forehead I could feel it pull nerves up to the top of my head. I turned 40 this year and don’t have major skin issues I’m just trying to avoid Botox but these reactions are causing me concern. Have you ever had these things happen to you?
