As human beings, sexual intimacy is a vital part of our existence, so erectile dysfunction can be distressing for many men. Over 18 million American men over the age of 20 suffer from erectile dysfunction regularly. Modern medicine has made treating erectile dysfunction easier, thanks to new medications and therapies. At Orchidia Medical Group in Naples, FL, we offer GAINSWave, a revolutionary new medical technology for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
How Effective Is GAINSWave?
The Gainswave treatment for erectile dysfunction brings the latest breakthroughs in technology to your treatment. The treatment differs from biological medications that merely address the symptoms of erectile dysfunction without addressing the underlying cause.
How Treatment Works
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is the basis of GAINSwave treatment. The first thing you need to know about shock wave therapy is that it refers to acoustic waves, not electrical shocks. In other words, this therapy uses sound waves. These waves generate high-frequency, low-intensity vibrations that stimulate blood flow and improve your ability to sustain an erection.
Gainswave therapy involves no surgery or invasive procedures. It is painless and non-invasive. Treatment with shock waves, therefore, offers a natural method of treating erectile dysfunction without the use of foreign substances or medications. It does not require downtime, poses no risks, and does not cause any side effects that might interfere with any medications you may be taking.
Benefits of This Treatment
Often, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. However, this treatment is not one of those cases. There are many benefits associated with this treatment, such as its non-invasive nature and the absence of negative side effects. Other benefits include:
Erections depend on the steady circulation of blood, which means that you need blood moving undeterred to the penis without encountering blockages, such as micro plaques, on its way there. Your body will be better able to direct blood to your penis with this treatment, so the quality and duration of your erections will greatly improve.
Erectile Dysfunction Relief
Erectile dysfunction relief is the main benefit of this treatment. A lot of times, it feels like erectile dysfunction can limit your ability to take advantage of your life to the fullest. During this treatment, the symptoms and causes of erectile dysfunction will be alleviated, you will see improvement in your sexual performance, and your sexual freedom will be restored.
An Improved Refractory Period
As it expands veins and regenerates new blood vessels, this treatment also helps reduce refractory period issues. An erection refractory period is the interval between erections. In general, blood flow decreases with age, resulting in a slower ability to regain an erection. The treatment works to shorten your refractory period so that you can once again get an erection and be interested in sex more quickly.
Feel More Confident
Many men consider their ability to have an erection as an indication of their manhood, and the inability to get or maintain an erection can feel emasculating. You will achieve a better sense of self-confidence and self-esteem through this treatment, which addresses both the causes and symptoms of erectile dysfunction. A faster refractory period and better erection quality also increase the quality of your sexual performance, which enhances ego and allows you to feel more like yourself again.
All About GAINSWave Treatment
Patients are sometimes wary of what this non-invasive treatment will be like, even though they know it is a non-invasive method of treating erectile dysfunction. Whatever way you look at it, of course, it’s a very personal treatment. Having an idea of what to expect at each stage of treatment can be comforting.
In our first meeting together, we’ll collect important information about you. During our consultation, we will have a frank discussion about sexual health, in particular any concerns you have, such as low sex drive, difficulty forming or maintaining an erection, or unusually slow refractory periods. The treatment will be tailored to your needs based on your goals.
Your general medical history, your current medical conditions, current medications, any supplements you are taking, and previous treatments for erectile dysfunction will be discussed. Medical issues related to the heart, such as high cholesterol and medications that cause high or low blood pressure, will receive particular attention. Medical conditions or medications can be the cause of erectile dysfunction. Your primary care physician may need to be consulted before this treatment is performed.
Guidelines for Pre-Treatment
Please follow the instructions we give you before your treatment. To ensure that your treatment is successful, it is important to follow these instructions. You may need to do the following before starting treatment:
- Avoid alcohol or tobacco
- Hydrate before the appointment
- Arrive early to your appointment
- Avoid certain medications or supplements
Arrive at your appointment freshly showered and wearing comfortable clothing. You may be given other specific instructions based on the treatment plan you are receiving.
During the Treatment Session
This treatment involves just a few simple sessions. As soon as you enter the treatment area, you will be given a numbing cream. Numbing cream is applied to the area during the procedure and will wear off after it is complete.
A skilled technician will operate the treatment device. For 15 to 30 minutes, the device transmits a high-frequency sound that helps stimulate blood flow in the treatment area. A tingling or faint buzzing is commonly reported by patients during treatment.
Immediate Post-Treatment Guidance
Following the completion of your treatment, we will provide you with a list of guidelines that you need to follow. Following these guidelines will help you prepare for what will happen after treatment and enhance the success of your treatment. Guidelines for post-treatment may include:
- Avoiding alcohol or tobacco
- Hydrating for several days
- Avoiding certain medications or supplements
Results and Further Post-Treatment
These treatments are safe and don’t restrict your normal daily activities. You don’t need to take time off from work or school for this treatment. In general, it is fine to return to your life, including your sexual activities, without delay after treatment, providing you follow the post-treatment guidelines. In the first 24 hours after treatment, many patients experience spontaneous erections.
It is possible we will recommend that you come back for a follow-up appointment at least once more to check on the effectiveness of the treatment. Our staff will assist you in developing a treatment plan that will determine how many sessions you will need.
How Soon Will Results Be Noticeable?
After one or two sessions, which is generally four to six weeks after the first treatment, most men notice their ability to sustain an erection has improved. Some men may require six treatments before realizing the benefits. The treatment results depend on the condition you are in and the level of your response. Treatment results can last between two and three years. A few factors, including your health and your age, determine the length of time the GAINSWave treatment lasts.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Only this treatment is FDA-approved as a non-surgical, non-invasive, and non-medication treatment for ED. Researchers have found that this treatment helps improve the sexual health of about 75% of participants in clinical trials.
