San Jose, Ca – February 6, 2013 – ZendyPlace announces the launch a platform offering consumers the ability to purchase non-surgical cosmetic procedures at below-retail prices from high quality Board Certified providers.
ZendyPlace allows consumers to take advantage of real-time discounts on popular and highly effective cosmetic procedures. Sales made using ZendyPlace’s free and easy-to-use patented technology benefit both consumers and providers because — much like discount air travel websites — otherwise vacant appointment slots get filled up with patients who get a deal on their pre-paid procedures. In this way, providers can avoid losing revenue associated with unfilled appointment slots while also increasing their customer base. ZendyPlace offers a significant advantage over other deal sites as providers have more control and flexibility on which offers to accept so that quality of care, service, and practice efficiencies are optimized.
ZendyPlace makes the process easy for consumers and providers. According to Kimi Verma, Chief Marketing Officer, “ZendyPlace makes the process easy for consumers and providers. First, membership to ZendyPlace is free for both parties. Consumers simply select a procedure they wish to have performed, choose the date and time of the appointment, and then enter their zip code and their offer.”
Once the offer is submitted, ZendyPlace’s technology matches the offer with a local Board Certified provider. As soon as the offer is accepted, the consumer receives an email detailing the provider’s information and confirming the date and time of the appointment. Matched offers through ZendyPlace are “all-inclusive” with respect to the consultation, the procedure, and any associated facility fees.
There is no charge for consumers to submit offers on ZendyPlace, and price reductions can reach 30% or more for popular and highly effective non-surgical cosmetic procedures that use FDA-approved products and medical devices.
To become a ZendyPlace certified provider, a cosmetic treatment center must, among other requirements, operate under Board Certified medical supervision. Credentials and qualifications of each provider candidate are reviewed by a team of medical advisers led by Vish Banthia, MD FACS. Each provider must adhere to industry standards set forth by the American Board of Medical Specialties or American Osteopathic Association, and prove their affiliation with one of the industry-recognized governing societies, such as American Society of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons or the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. These societies require that all active members periodically undergo training and attend current seminars in order to keep abreast of industry trends and innovations, thereby promoting a high quality of care. Moreover, each provider is required to verify that they use FDA-approved products and devices for all procedures offered through ZendyPlace.
ZendyPlace is launching with the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures including Botox, dermal fillers, laser skin correction, skin rejuvenation, non-surgical facelifts, laser hair reduction, non-surgical body sculpting, vein treatments, acne control, acne scar treatments and nail fungus removal.
In 2011, IBISWorld estimated the US plastic surgery market had reached $12.5 Billion in 2011. The same report estimates at least $5B of the total revenue came from non-surgical procedures. In addition, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimated 12 million non-surgical procedures in 2011 with an annual growth rate over 5%.
