Acne breakouts occur when hormonal changes cause our sebaceous glands to produce excess sebum (oil), P. acnes bacteria feed on the sebum and multiply, clogged pores trap the multiplying P. acnes bacteria and white blood cells move in to fight off the invading bacteria -the result, a pimple. Blue LED light has been clinically proven to kill acne-causing P. acnes bacteria, clearing existing blemishes and preventing future outbreaks.

The Zap uses a combination of powerful blue light with sonic vibration and gentle warming for clinically proven clearing results.

How it works

Blue Light: 414nm blue light works by producing oxygen singlets which attach to the P.acnes bacteria (acne-causing bacteria). These singlets have a phototoxic effect on key porphorins, causing the P.acnes bacteria to self-destruct

Sonic vibration: Increases microcirculation to reduce swelling and inflammation while agitating the skin to expose more of the bacteria to the light

Gentle warming: Produced by the light energy, opens pores and allows the light to reach more bacteria

Does the ZAP prevent breakouts from occurring?

Zap uses 414nm wavelength of blue LED light. Blue LED light at this wavelength is known to be phototoxic to bacteria. This means that not only are you eliminating the pimple, you are killing the bacteria that causes acne, therefore preventing future breakouts.

How long will TANDA Zap last?

The Zap is designed to last for 1000 2-minute treatments. The batteries that come with your device will not last the full 1000 treatments.

Is the Zap right for me?

If you suffer from any breakouts or have pesky pimples that come up at the worst times, Zap is for you! If you have a more moderate acne problem, please see our Tanda Clear+ (link to clear plus page) for treating larger surface areas.

How do I dispose of my device once it has completed 1000 uses?

You can dispose of the Zap like you would any other electronic device. Please see here (link to disposal page) for more information on how to dispose of your Zap.

Do I need to wear goggles?

Company sponsored testing showed that, when used as directed, the device did not pose risk of damage to the eyes.

What skin types are best suited for the Zap?

The ZAP can be used on all skin types and tones. Unlike some other acne treatments the Zap Advanced Acne Light Clearing Device does not contain any harsh chemicals. It will not cause skin irritation, flakiness, dryness or hyper-pigmentation.

My batteries seem to run out quickly – why?

Are you treating your whole face with the Zap? The Zap is a zit Zapper – targeting individual pimples. The batteries that come with the device last for about 45 treatments. When used as a zit Zapper, 45 treatments will go a long way. Plus you still have 955 treatments left in the life of the device! If you’re looking for a tool to use all over your face, check out the Tanda Clear+. (link to clear+ page) It has a rechargeable built in battery, covers about 5X the surface area of the Zap, lasts for 6,000 treatments and it’s only $195. If you wanted to get even more value out of your Zap device as well as be environmentally friendly, pick up a package of rechargeable batteries.

What are the terms and conditions for the 100% Money Back Guarantee?

The Zap is backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee. Simply try our products and if you’re unsatisfied in any way in that 30-day period, you can return them for a complete refund. Please also see our warranty and return policy page.

Is there a power adaptor option for the Zap to be rechargeable?

No, the Zap runs on 3 AAA batteries and does not have the option to be recharged like our other systems.

When do I know to change the batteries in my Zap?

The Zap will indicate with an orange blinking light when the batteries are running low.

How do I change the batteries in my Zap?

To change the batteries in your Zap, you want to first ensure the device is turned off and remove the treatment head from the device. Then, take the battery cartridge out of the device and remove the 3 AAA batteries. Simply place 3 new AAA batteries in the cartridge and place back into the device. Line up the two arrows on the treatment head and device, and twist the treatment head counter clockwise to secure.

Step 1: Cleanse your skin
Step 2: Press the orange power button
Step 3: Lightly place over blemish until vibration stops (2 minutes).
Repeat 2-3 times daily

Review by Frank
I got one of these for christmas! At first I thought it was a flashlight because it's a super bright hand held LED device. However, I've been using it on a zit that showed itself and it's reducing in size! I'm not sure if it would have reduced in size regardless of this device, but it's definitely worth a shot with all the holiday parties coming up.

Only product that works for my hectic life

Review by Kit
With my work schedule, I basically live out of my car, so I keep my Zap attached to my keychain. Its there for me when I feel my pimple coming on, I just Zap it wherever I am and it prevents it from coming out. I love my zap!

I'm telling you THIS WORKS!

Review by Sabo
I'm telling you, THIS WORKS. I had a friend that popped up underneath my skin that I tested it on. I used it three times during that day and by the next day my little lump was gone! WOW.

Great for boys

Review by Tina
i bought this for my two sons who have issues with breakouts from their helmets & chin straps. It works so well! We haven't replaced the battery yet and its been 2 weeks so perhaps they've made changes to the product. none-the-less, WELL worth $49 versus a trip to the dermatologist!

My Zap Goes Where I Go!

Review by MissMarie
My Tanda Zap is in my purse at all times. I know exactly where I am about to get a pimple because I get that itchy feeling in my skin. If I use my Zap right away, it won't even break the skin. It is great for all those stress pimples I seem to get!

hair after baby

Review by Cathie
I invested a lot of money in professional laser hair removal only for it all to come back after the birth of my beautiful baby. When i came across this product i liked that it was professional technology and that i could use at home, and since i'm planning on having more children i like the option of using it as i need it. It took about 5 treatments until i reached the results that i wanted, but it was much easier to do the treatments at home compared to going to a spa.

worked for me

Review by Ruthie
The tanda zap worked so good for me. My zit didnt go away in 24 hours, but I used it about 4 times one night and the next morning it was way smaller. It only took a couple days to clear up rather than a week. I've been telling my friends about it and they all want one now too.

Too good of a result to be true

Review by Happy M
I'm from Japan (one of the most beauty-obsessed and discerning markets) and although I was skeptical at first, I thought I'd give this a try, since I always get humongous pimples around my mouth before my period.

The product arrived just in time when two pimples were starting to develop and it cleared them witin a day or two. Usually, I use Clearasil to no avail, but this worked magic!

In Japan, I used to pay almost $200 for a facial using IPL to clear my pimple, but this costs not even a fraction of such treatment.

After reading some negative reviews on its battery life, I remove the cap to avoid unecessary battery consumption after each use. This product is heaven-sent.

Love my new Zap!

Review by Val108
Just started using my new Zap and it totally clears up those monster zits you feel coming from deep within, its absolutely awesome!! I even keep it in my purse with me, i just love it.

Using for 10 days now...

Review by JJ29
I agree with other reviews that the batteries do die within a week. A good option is to have rechargeable batteries. IF you use the Tanda as directed you will see your zits go down a great deal. I have hormonal (under chin) and bad cysts acne around my period it helped them clear up a lot faster than just using my AHA's. My skin is almost clear a first in many years, so I am very happy with this product even if I had to spend a bit of money on batteries, it's worth clear skin.

Amazing Little Tool!

Review by Tracey31G
I couldn't be more pleased that I bought this product! For about $50 you really can't beat the price for how well this really does work. It is a bit time consuming, however the results are defiantly worth it! I use it after a shower at night and in the morning the blemish is either drastically shrunk or gone completely!

Sensitive Skin

Review by CarrieS12
For me, the best part of this device is that it doesn't dry my skin out around the pimple, it just seems to melt away. I hate using zit creams and gels because I'm super sensitive and I find that I'm always left with a big dry lump which then leads to a scar. The tanda really does help to avoid this. I'm already feeling less self-conscious about my skin which is good, so I'll continue to use this and see what happens.

Effective, chemical-free & convenient.

Review by Maura12
Works for me!

(Posted on 7/20/12)


Review by Trish213
After using the zap device for a week or so, I did notice decreased redness almost immediately around the breakout area. Also if i catch the pimple before it comes to a head, I notice the device is really fast in working to get rid of the zit. I've noticed it takes a bit longer if the skin is broken, but still definitely seems to heal much quicker than without using the zap. Works for me.

Super skeptical, but it worked!

Review by Roxann
I have super dry and sensitive skin, after the first day of use my minor adult acne had almost cleared up completely. By day two, even better & day 3, it was gone.
No pain, acne or redness.

I like it.

Review by caroline128
A helpful addition to my war against acne blemishes! I have been using the product for several month and take it everywhere I go....I can see how much faster blemished are clearing when I "zap" them.

Great buy

Review by Nick12
I use it multiple times a day and usually in the next morning its either gone or almost completely faded. For $50, you cant beat it.

Like nothin else!!

Review by LaRue
So I've been using this for a couple of weeks and I must say it the ONLY think I have found that works!! I'm a 20 year old with scars and minor breakouts and I've tried EVERYRHING you name it I've probably tried it! Proactive broke me out worse, skin ID didn't have a change, Clinique broke me out, I've tried almost everything over the counter so for me to say this works is an AMAZING thing!! Its taken care of the breakouts and faded the dark spots!! The only bad thing I have to say is that the batteries don't last long at all, I've changed then about once a week, but I'm thinking about getting rechargeable one to fix that!! I absolutely love this!!
