Thermi, an Almirall S.A. (ALM) company announced that it has launched an innovative new education and exchange platform to enhance and foster clinical observation, advanced learning, and innovation of Thermi’s leading temperature-controlled radiofrequency platforms.

“This marks an exciting period for Thermi,” noted Vlad Paul-Blanc, President and General Manager. “We are focusing our energy and significant resources on unlocking the pure clinical potential of Thermi® technology, and our greatest assets include our clinicians with their extensive experience as well as their expertise.”

Thermi is pleased to announce the introduction of thirty-six (36) National Centers of Excellence throughout 2018 in which new, existing, and prospective customers will engage and observe some of our most experienced providers in an intimate, clinically-driven environment. In partnership with Thermi, expert clinicians spanning multiple specialities (plastic and facial plastic surgery, dermatology, gynecology and urogenyecology) will serve as hubs of clinical experience, protocol development, and future product development. “Thermi has taken an important step forward with their dedication to science, education, and best of class training,” commented David Goldberg, MD, JD. “I am very excited about this new step forward as we elevate the knowledge and skill within the Thermi portfolio.”

Thermi announces the first cohort of COE Centers with this release and will update as new COE Centers come online.  “We grow as physicians when companies support unique educational opportunities to advance our skill set with their technologies,” noted Sabrina Fabi, MD.  “It’s exciting to see the new leadership at Thermi making education their priority, especially in areas of female health, where many practice gaps still exist.”

In addition, Thermi announces the launch of the Thermi P.R.E.P. National Academy Premier Radiofrequency Expert Platform (P.R.E.P).  This will be a multi-faceted platform focused on enhancing tools, access, and opportunities for current and prospective customers to access information and develop best practices. Features of P.R.E.P. will include exclusive peer-to-peer COE events, clinical exchange webinars, strategic practice building symposiums, and upgraded customer-only portals with refreshed resources and materials.“The last few months have been exciting and exhilarating as we developed these new programs and platforms,” noted Sheetal Davitt, SVP of Global Marketing. “We are confident that these new programs will accomplish the goals of enhancing medical education and customer support access.”

These initiatives are part of an increased strategic focus on clinical innovation and development. This commitment has resulted in the creation of a new medical affairs organization lead by Dr. Tara Margarella, VP of Global Medical Affairs. “Thermi is at its core a medical company built on education and rooted in science,” notes Tara. “We are focused on strengthening this foundation through new programs centred around enhanced learning opportunities, the creation of scientifically sound data, and a medical-to-medical information exchange forum that allows clinicians to learn from each other.” This department will continue to rollout initiatives and programs to achieve these objectives.

Susan Murrmann, MD, comments Thermi is a leader and a trailblazer in the field of radiofrequency energy and its applications in the aesthetic industry.  We are very proud to partner with the company as a Thermi Center of Excellence as they expand their brand and their educational opportunities!”
