TAMPA, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 08/08/13 -- Dr. Jeffrey Hunt and Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay, a practice specializing in a variety of vein treatment and cosmetic enhancement procedures, is offering patients an opportunity to receive a free, non-surgical facial "uplift" procedure known as Ultherapy® as part of a new Facebook contest. The practice recently added Ultherapy®, also known as Ulthera®, to its list of facial rejuvenation techniques, a treatment that utilizes ultrasound waves to improve collagen production and firm up sagging, inelastic skin in facial and neck areas.
Currently, the practice is working in conjunction with a promotion offered through Facebook by Ultherapy®. The company's request is simple: mail in an old scarf for a chance to win "a new neck." Those who are interested in entering the contest can find details on the Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay's Facebook page. Winners of the giveaway will receive an Ultherapy® treatment worth up to $5,000, which will be performed at the Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay.
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Ultherapy® utilizes ultrasound technology to allow physicians to treat the deepest support layers of the skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. According to Dr. Hunt, many of his patients wish to address common signs of aging by lifting, toning, and tightening their skin around their eyes, face, neck, and beneath the chin. He says Ultherapy® is designed to addresses these concerns without any incisions or injections. The treatment, which typically takes around 60-90 minutes to complete, allows patients to return to their daily lives without any post-procedure recovery time necessary, Dr. Hunt explains.
The vein specialist highlights that his Ultherapy® patients should begin to see the effects of Ultherapy® within the first few weeks with improvement continuing until optimal results are visible at 3 months. Dr. Hunt says Ultherapy®'s high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) waves heat the deep structural support layers of the skin, encouraging production of new collagen. This can gradually create stronger collagen and elastin to improve the skin's firmness and elasticity.
With more than 100,000 Ultherapy® treatments performed worldwide, the procedure has become a popular option to treat mild or moderate skin laxity for patients seeking a non-surgical method of addressing their cosmetic concerns. Dr. Hunt notes that while the results of the treatment will not duplicate those of surgery, Ultherapy® -- like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Exilis laser treatment, and Juvéderm dermal filler injections -- can often be an effective way to rejuvenate a patient's appearance without the necessity of surgery.
The Ultherapy® Facebook contest is currently running, and ends on August 31st, 2013.
