Default Zeno Pimple-Killer thingie...anyone have one?

I am talking about those little Zeno pimple things that use a tiny amount of heat to zap away pimples, says that they can get rid of them pretty quickly...anyone have one?

Thoughts? Do they really work like they say they do?

I have one, and it does work. They tell you you need to zap the pimple as soon as it starts to emerge, and they're right. Twice in 12 hours and it subsides.

It doesn't work on cystic blemishes, although I tried it on one and it didn't get worse as I would have expected it to. And it's not a substitute for a good skin care regimen. It's ideal if you just get an occasional small breakout.

I bought one about 2-3 years ago, and I didn't notice much of a difference. I'd have to catch the zit really early, when I could just barely feel it under the skin, and it still wasn't enough to prevent it from coming out. I do think they were a less red than usual, though, but that's about it.

But I've never been able to get rid of a zit once it's formed. None of the products that so many people swear by worked to dry it out. I would just have to wait for it to disappear on it's own.

SuZen is right. It works but not on cystic acne (or blackheads). It seemed to help speed along the process.
