A hot stone massage. Soothing. Comfortable. These are just some of the words used to describe ThermiSmooth™ treatments. Another one? Affordable. When compared to other non-surgical treatments on the market – we’re looking at you, CoolSculpting – ThermiSmooth™ is not only less expensive, it’s also a far less painful experience.
Price Differences Between ThermiSmooth™ and CoolSculpting
One of our nurses happened to be at a location that offers CoolSculpting and was shocked by the prices: one treatment for one inner thigh was $756. The facility recommends two treatments to get the job done, which comes to $3,024 for both inner thighs.
Although we don’t know what every CoolSculpting procedure will cost you, our Thermi™ prices are easy to understand and you get more bang for your buck! We’ve set up discounted packages of 3 and 6 sessions for anything from your eyes to your flanks. Plus, when compared to the above prices for CoolSculpting, you can literally save thousands and get three sessions out of the deal. For example, we offer 3 sessions for anterior thighs for just $520!
It makes sense that different technologies and procedures would have a different price structure, but what concerns us is our nurse heard someone yelling in the treatment room because CoolSculpting was so painful! Since we know all about Thermi™ procedures, we thought we’d dive into CoolSculpting to learn more about it.
Pain & Discomfort from CoolSculpting
According to Baltimore plastic surgeon, Dr. Daniel P. Markmann, 10 percent of CoolSculpting patients experience pain AFTER their procedure. Some patients feel no pain during the procedure but then deal with these irksome side effects afterward. RealSelf wrote an article on the procedure (you can read it here) in which they also quoted Teresa Mann, a dermatologist in Bozeman, Montana. “On rare occasions, patients may need a prescription medication to reduce the pain. Some patients have found Spanks or other very tight compressive clothing to be comforting during the first couple of weeks following the procedure.” Other side effects include itching, pain, swelling, or numbness. Just reading the comments on the above article gives us the willies.
In contrast, ThermiSmooth™ patients experience no pain and no downtime. In addition to the ThermiSmooth™ Body and Face procedures, we also offer ThermiVa™ in office. Here’s what one of our patients said about getting the treatment on sensitive lady bits:
“I went to my gynecologist to discuss treatment/options for painful intercourse. Since I had a vaginal delivery in 2012, intercourse has become more painful, especially during certain positions. She mentioned ThermiVa® and how it works. Let’s face it, nothing looks the same after a vaginal birth, so of course, I was also interested in the skin tightening. My initial consult was with my doctor, by my actual treatment was with the medical assistant who was trained and certified to perform ThermiVa® treatments, which really do feel like a warm bath. I can’t really describe it, but it was almost relaxing. She communicated well throughout the whole procedure and told me to tell her if it ever got too hot, but I handled the maximum heat just fine. It took about 30 to 40 minutes, no pain, no discomfort, and I went back to work after my appointment. I had intercourse the same day and immediately felt a difference. Not only was I happy with the results, but my husband was too! I’m looking forward to the rest of my treatments.” –Alyssa, 27, painful intercourse
