Welcome to ZITzapp.

ZITzapp gives you the power to eradicate acne right from your iPhone/iPod touch. ZITzapp was developed by a noted California physician and is specifically designed to use visible light to treat mild-moderate acne and give you clearer skin.

You’ve seen commercials for benzoyl peroxide based products on TV and in magazines. These products work but can irritate your skin and cost you a bundle. ZITzapp harnesses the power of light to treat acne safely, effectively… and costs less than a buck.

Many people have noticed that their acne seems to improve after sun exposure. Several dermatology studies in the past few years have now demonstrated that blue-violet and red light are quite effective in helping those affected with mild to moderate acne. Some sample papers are cited here:

1.British Journal of Dermatology. 2000, 142:973-978
2.Journal of Dermatological Science. 2002, 30:129-135
3.British Journal of Dermatology. 2009, 160(6): 1273-1285

For those who don’t want to hit the medical library, P. acnes bacteria produces porphyrins which avidly absorb certain wavelengths of light, produces free radicals which then kill the bacteria itself. This leads to significant reduction in clinical acne, in some instances, even superior to those in patients treated with benzoyl peroxide (the active ingredient in many over the counter acne products). Since porphyrins are not otherwise found in skin and no UV light is used, visible light therapy appears to be quite safe and benign.

After you enter your age and acne severity, ZITzapp crafts an effective regimen for the treatment of your acne. Simply follow the ZITzapp instructions and your iPhone will produce the right type of light; just hold the phone screen about an inch away from the area you want to treat. You'll see a timer count down and a chime will sound when your session is completed. Since ZITzapp uses visible light for only brief periods of time, it appears to be quite safe for teens and adults alike and users typically have little to no side effects. Complete the recommended course and you’ll be on your way to clearer skin.

We’ve designed this app to be the best it can be to help you fight acne. But, we’re not your mother or your doctor. So stop using ZITzapp and consult your physician if you develop any problems or experience redness, pain, irritation, undue dryness or worsening of your acne. Do not use ZITzapp at all if you have any condition that makes your skin light sensitive or take any medication that makes your skin light sensitive. Do not use ZITzapp if you are pregnant or nursing.
