THERMIva is a hormone-free, non-surgical treatment designed to target specific tissues. The applications of this technology have be used in conjunction with other therapies to address a variety of urogenital concerns. It utilizes controlled radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen fibrils to contract. This leads to tightening and increased sensitivity in the desired treatment areas. It also results in better muscle tone and increases the tissue’s natural functioning, such as lubrication.
Dr. Sodhi, an obstetrician and gynecologist, performs the treatments herself. Dr. Sodhi specializes in concern areas such as difficulty orgasming, urinary incontinence, and vaginal atrophy/laxity. She has used ThermiVA with great success off-label, as a non-surgical, non-hormonal, but very effective option to treat certain sexual dysfunctions, vagial atrophy or dryness, minor stress urinary incontinence as well as minor bladder prolapse. Many of her patients have also reported improvements in their overactive bladder, reducing their nightly trips to the bathroom and improving their sleep.
Treatment results vary, but you can expect to notice an increase in muscle tone and vaginal lubrication for the area treated. Dr. Sodhi will evaluate the treatment area and privately discuss expectations, medical concerns, and desired outcomes prior to your first session.
Many patients describe it as comfortable. During treatment, you will feel the sensation of warmth, but at a comfortable level; you may feel mild pressure, but nothing painful. The ThermiVa wand monitors the treatment area simultaneously as it applies heat to ensure a therapeutic temperature is reached; this keeps your tissue safe while still providing the most effective treatment. The entire process takes approximately 30-45 minutes.
Throughout the duration of treatment, Dr. Sodhi will check in with you make make sure you are comfortable, while performing your customized treatment. Having a gynecologist such as Dr. Sodhi administer this treatment is ideal because she is very experienced in the anatomy and physiology of the treatment area. Dr. Sodhi specializes in urogenital disorders, and treats many patients with urinary stress incontinence, or those looking for a non-invasive alternative for a labiaplasty.
ThermiVa completely non-invasive, and there is no downtime after treatment- you may exercise, drive, and resume all physical activity directly post treatment.
