What Is ED and Why does Erectile Dysfunction Occur?
Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is the most common sex problem, affecting as many as 30 million men, and 50% of men over 50 years old.
ED is defined as inability or difficulty maintaining an erection that’s firm enough for sex.
ED that is progressive or happens routinely with sex is not normal, and it should be treated.
ED can happen:
- Most commonly when blood flow in the penis is limited or nerves are harmed
- With stress or emotional reasons
- As an early warning of a more serious illness, like: atherosclerosis (hardening or blocked arteries), heart disease, high blood pressure or high blood sugar from Diabetes
What Is GAINSWave Acoustic Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction?
Acoustic wave therapy is a non-invasive erectile dysfunction therapy procedure designed to help men correct ED that occurs due to poor blood flow in the penis. It works by removing micro-plaque from the penis. The procedure has been shown to help improve blood flow to the penis, as well as stimulate the growth of new blood vessels.
GAINSWave uses low-intensity sound waves to enhance penile vascularity. It helps the penis grow new vascular tissue, breaking down the plaque which is limiting the blood flow. Some patients even note improved sensitivity in their penis, all promoting improved sexual function.
What to Expect at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa During your GAINSWave Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction
Your acoustic wave therapy session will be performed in our clinic, and does not require any drugs or injections. You will be asked to complete an in depth questionnaire on each visit to assess your baseline level of sexual function, and your response to therapy.
Approximately 30 minutes before an ED therapy session, patients may place numbing cream on the penis. Next, the patient undergoes the procedure. During your procedure you will hear a loud knocking sound which is the acoustic machine transmitting sound energy to the penis to break up the microplaques. Although strange at first, the treatments are very well tolerated by all men.
A typical erectile dysfunction therapy program requires six to 12 sessions scheduled at weekly intervals, and each session takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Following an acoustic wave therapy program, most patients experience harder, stronger and more sustainable erections than before.
What to Expect After GAINSWave Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction
After an erectile dysfunction therapy procedure, a patient can resume his normal daily activities. Acoustic wave therapy side effects are minimal, with some patients experiencing some mild bruising or soreness or very occasionally blood tinged urine. And, patients sometimes report spontaneous erections that occur within the first 24 hours following treatment.
Does Acoustic Wave Therapy Work?
ED issues commonly occur due to poor blood flow, and acoustic wave therapy is proven to help address these problems. To date, more than 30 clinical studies have been performed, and these studies indicate more than 75% of patients experience positive results after acoustic wave therapy procedures, even when they didn’t respond to oral medications like Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. Erectile dysfunction therapy has also been shown to help men treat Peyronie’s disease (a condition that causes curved, painful erections) and improve their sexual performance.
