Acoustic Wave Therapy utilizes low-intensity extracorpreal shockwave therapy to improve blood flow in the penis. When applied applied to the soft tissue, the acoustic waves repair existing blood vessels and the growth of new blood vessels allowing for more blood flow leading to better quality erections. Better blood flow translates to better erection quality and sexual performance.
By expanding existing blood vessels and generating new ones, Acoustic Wave Therapy helps to improve blood flow to the penis and offers men these benefits:
- Decreased Refractory Period
- Improved Erection Quality
- Relief from the symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease
- Harder and More Full Erections
- Improved Sexual Performance
- Improved Sensitivity
While shockwave therapy has been in Europe for nearly two decades, it’s relatively new to the market in the U.S. This therapy, commercially known as GAINSWave®, is spreading throughout the U.S. and Canada, making its way onto top media outlets such as Men’s Health Magazine and Fox News.
Acoustic Wave Therapy is the safest proven treatment to treat Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease. This FDA cleared treatment has been used for over a decade in Europe and no significant adverse events have been reported for this non-invasive, drug free procedure.
Unlike surgery and the use of pills or pumps, Acoustic Wave Therapy is completely safe and non-invasive. Over 40 studies have been conducted on Acoustic Wave Therapy for ED resulting in no major adverse effects reported. Additionally, by treating the root cause of ED of reduced blood flow, patients do not regularly depend on the use of medications or surgeries. Patients can now reclaim their spontaneity with lasting results.
Patients who use Acoustic Wave Therapy are looking to treat the symptoms or erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease. We also see patients that are simply looking to improve their sexual performance even though they are suffering from PD or ED. Acoustic Wave Therapy should not be used on patients with active prostate cancer or with penile implants. Talk to your doctor if you have any of these conditions or are on anticoagulant therapy.
