Are the symptoms of erectile dysfunction having an impact on your sex life? Erectile dysfunction is a common condition that can cause a lack of libido and an inability to maintain an erection. If you’re facing erectile dysfunction, several potential treatments can help.
One of the most effective solutions is GAINSWave therapy. At Orchidia Medical Group, we offer GAINSWave therapy for men with symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Learn more about this innovative treatment below.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction can be caused by various factors. The following are just three of the most frequent causes of erectile dysfunction:
While erectile dysfunction can affect men at any age, it is most prevalent in men over 40 due to the natural aging process. As you age, your testosterone production gradually decreases. You’re also more likely to have poor circulation. These combined factors can make it hard to get and maintain an erection.
An erection is the result of increased blood flow to the penis during sexual arousal. When a man has certain types of circulatory issues, they can prevent proper blood flow from reaching the penis during intimacy, leading to erectile dysfunction. This scenario can occur at any age.
Testosterone is the male hormone responsible for everything from muscle mass to libido. When hormonal issues impact testosterone production, they can impact your ability to achieve an erection.
Underlying Health Concerns
Sometimes erectile dysfunction is caused by an underlying medical condition. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and neurological disorders can all impact your sexual function and your ability to become aroused.
What Is GAINSWave?
GAINSWave is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment designed to resolve symptoms of erectile dysfunction. GAINSWave therapy uses low-intensity extracorporeal shock waves to repair blood vessels and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels.
The treatment can increase and enhance blood flow to the penis, making it easier to get or maintain an erection.
The GAINSWave Process
If you are interested in GAINSWave, it’s important to know what to expect during treatment. Read a complete breakdown of the GAINSWave process, from consultation to results, below.
Consulting with Professionals
Every patient seeking GAINSWave therapy must attend a consultation in our office. The purpose of this appointment is to confirm that you can benefit from GAINSWave treatment.
Not every patient will see results from GAINSWave. We need to discuss your symptoms and perform an examination to determine whether you’re a good candidate for GAINSWave therapy.
Preparing for GAINSWave
If you are approved for GAINSWave therapy, you will be able to schedule your first session soon after your consultation. You don’t need to do much to prepare for this treatment. On the day of your session, all you need to do is take a shower with a mild body wash or soap.
Your GAINSWave Session
During GAINSWave treatment, you will be asked to lie back in a comfortable chair. You can lie completely flat if that’s more relaxing for you. We will then perform your treatment by using the handheld GAINSWave device to deliver low-intensity shock waves directly into the soft tissues of your genitals.
This portion of the treatment should cause no discomfort. Most patients simply relax and listen to music, read, or watch videos while their GAINSWave therapy takes place.
Experiencing the Results of GAINSWave
The entire GAINSWave session will take about 45 minutes to one hour to complete. Once it is finished, you can return home and resume your usual activities. You won’t have to worry about any recovery or downtime with this treatment.
You will not see complete results after just one GAINSWave session. Most patients need to attend several sessions to see their desired outcome. This can be anywhere from two to five sessions spaced several weeks apart.
After your initial round of treatment is complete, your body will begin repairing damaged blood vessels in the penis and creating new ones.
About two to three months after your treatment is complete, you may notice a significant improvement in your erectile dysfunction symptoms. You should experience increased blood flow to the penis, which will make it easier to achieve and maintain an erection during sexual intercourse.
Are You a Candidate for GAINSWave Therapy?
Have you been suffering from erectile dysfunction and looking for an effective treatment? You may be a good candidate for GAINSWave treatment. If you struggle with the following symptoms, you should schedule a consultation with us:
- Decreased libido
- Poor sexual stamina
- General disinterest in sex
- Inability to get or maintain an erection
The only way to confirm that you are a candidate for GAINSWave therapy is by having a professional consultation. We must evaluate you before scheduling your GAINSWave procedure.
During your consultation, we’ll go over your symptoms, medical history, and desired outcome to make an informed decision about your treatment.
Depending on the cause of erectile dysfunction, GAINSWave may not be the right treatment for every patient. For example, patients who have certain underlying health concerns may not see pronounced results from GAINSWave. If other options can better meet your needs, we will advise you on these alternative solutions.
