Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

Erectile Dysfunction Patient

For years, medical and psychological studies have linked sex and sexual function to a range of other physical and mental health factors. Men and women alike report that a healthy sex life leads to higher levels of happiness, more confidence and heightened positivity; and sex seems to be linked to heart and brain health, as well. But the opposite is also true: if your sexual health is suffering due to concerns like erectile dysfunction (ED), you may be feeling frustrated and even depressed. There is a lot of pressure on men to perform in the bedroom, and when something stands in the way of your sex life, it can take a toll on your self-esteem. Since men experiencing erectile dysfunction might feel worried or embarrassed about their symptoms, they don’t often talk about them and may assume they are alone in their struggle.

However, concerns like ED are incredibly common. According to the American Urological Association, as many as 30 million men — 20% of the male US population — report experiencing symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction can affect men of all ages and levels of health and can be caused by psychological factors, hormones or a preexisting health condition. While there are many short-term solutions to help men with ED achieve erections and maintain their sex life, these can be cumbersome or expensive and only provide temporary relief. If you’re interested in finding a longer-lasting solution for treating erectile dysfunction, acoustic wave therapy might be right for you.

Acoustic Wave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction 

Physician’s Laser Aesthetics and Cosmetics specializes in non-invasive solutions to beauty and wellness concerns from wrinkles to visible broken veins. We are experts in finding and applying the top technologies and techniques to treat all of our patients’ concerns, including erectile dysfunction. We offer a cutting-edge therapy for men struggling with ED: extracorporeal acoustic wave therapy (sometimes called shock wave therapy), a treatment that uses pulses of sound energy to refresh the tissues of the penis and revive your erections.

The most common cause of erectile dysfunction is a lack of blood circulation in the penis. Poor circulation might be due to weakened blood vessels, nerves or muscles in the area. When the pulses of energy from acoustic wave therapy enter the weakened tissues, they trigger the body to recognize damaged cells and start two important processes called angiogenesis and neovascularization. These processes essentially allow your body to restore old blood vessels and build new ones, so healthy circulation can be restored to the penis. The tissue-renewing effects of acoustic wave therapy can also extend to penile nerves and muscles for total rejuvenation. 

At Physician’s Laser, we can also utilize platelet-rich plasma or stem cell treatments to enhance your results. These treatments infuse your body tissues with growth-stimulating plasma and stem cells, which improve skin volume, blood flow and cell function in the treated area. Along with acoustic wave therapy, you can enjoy long-lasting results that can boost your sexual health and confidence.

Treat the Cause of Erectile Dysfunction, Not the Symptoms

Many of the treatments available for ED are designed to help men achieve and sustain an erection by improving the symptoms when needed. Erections are formed when arousal triggers blood flow to the penis, enlarging spongy tissues around the urethra. In the case of ED, this blood flow may become restricted for a variety of reasons. Oral medications like Viagra or Cialis, or physical tools like penis pumps, function by increasing blood flow to the penis, working around the cause behind your erectile dysfunction to help you achieve an erection. 

But this common approach doesn’t help your sexual function improve in the long run. You have to use these treatments every time you have sex, and the results won’t last beyond each individual erection. With acoustic wave therapy, though, the tissues in your penis — nerves, blood vessels and muscles — that should be working together to achieve an erection are stimulated and repaired, so you’ll be able to achieve erections on your own once again. That’s why the effects of this treatment can last so much longer: you’re treating the root cause of your ED, not just the surface-level symptoms.

What to Expect from Acoustic Wave Therapy

Like all of our treatments at Physician’s Laser, acoustic wave therapy is gentle and non-surgical. You won’t need to schedule time away from daily activities to rest and recover, and all risks and side effects are substantially lower or nonexistent. patients are able to leave their appointment and pick their day up where they left off, with no restrictions on activities like sex or exercise. The treatment uses a special handheld wand that emits carefully controlled, body-safe levels of acoustic waves into the tissues of your penis.

Using specialized numbing creams and protective gels, you’ll be kept completely comfortable throughout the treatment. And, since sessions typically last between 15 and 20 minutes, you’ll be ready to return to everyday activities before you know it. Some men experience residual numbness, tingling or sensitivity in the treated area, but this subsides quickly — within a few hours or by the next day. Many of our patients notice benefits following a single treatment, though most begin to notice results 3-12 weeks after their first treatment.. We suggest six to twelve appointments for best results, depending on the cause and severity of your ED and your personal goals for your results. After completing your treatments, your results can last up to two years. We often recommend scheduling maintenance treatments to keep your results even longer.
