Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay Selects Artefill to Meet Growing Patient Demand for a Longer Lasting Dermal Filler
Date:7/13/2009

TAMPA, Fla., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeffrey A. Hunt, D.O., R.V.S. and Medical Director at the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay has selected Artefill, the first and only FDA-approved microsphere-enhanced collagen filler for the correction of smile lines, to treat patients who are looking for a longer lasting dermal filler. Dr. Hunt has been an avid Artefill user the past several years due to its proven success and effectiveness for the correction of wrinkles.

Dr. Jeffrey Hunt., Medical Director, said, "We finally have what our patients have been asking for: a very long-lasting, easy to administer, facial filler. No more 'in between stages' as the filler is disappearing. Artefill is very cost-effective when you consider its longevity, and the results have been impressive."

This simple, in-office procedure takes approximately fifteen minutes to complete. A patient is injected with Artefill similar to other dermal fillers with the key difference being its lasting effect. The unique microspheres in Artefill are not absorbed by the body and therefore provide the support the skin needs for long lasting natural feeling results. This is different from temporary dermal fillers that are made of different kinds of natural or synthetic materials that are completely absorbed by the body over time and require repeat injections to maintain wrinkle correction. A skin test is required prior to treatment or approximately four (4) weeks ahead of time, to ensure a patient is not allergic to the collagen or anesthetic in Artefill.

Artefill is only offered by a select group of physicians in Florida and is not available at all physician offices. Dr. Hunt is one of the company trained and select few company sponsored physicians who has the skills and experience needed to administer the product.

A 43-year old female patient of the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay said, "I would highly recommend Artefill -- more so than any of the other fillers I've tried -- due to the long-lasting effect it has. For me, that's the value. I used to be injected with another filler every 4 to 6 months but have absolutely loved the results of the Artefill injections around my nose and mouth. I would also recommend being injected by Dr. Hunt or Nurse Practitioner Kristen Walsh because it's important to go to someone who knows what they're doing. I drive all the way from Valrico because I love the care and results I get at the Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay."
