There are countless cosmetic treatments out there to solve a wide range of health issues and improve confidence. These treatments are for everyone, but many people feel that they are marketed more toward women. Here at Tru-Male Medical in Oak Brook, IL, we are dedicated to ensuring men know we’re here for them and that they deserve to have the same confidence and care that women do. Our GAINSWave treatment is specifically for men.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most common conditions plaguing millions of men each year. Evidence suggests that ED affects about 40% of 40-year-old men and 70% of 70-year-old men, a statistic that is as eye-opening as it is easy to remember. If you are a part of these statistics, know that you don’t have to put up with ED any longer. There is a simple solution waiting for you.
How Many GAINSWave Sessions Will I Need?
Generally, we tell our patients to expect about six to a dozen sessions for the best quality and longest-lasting results. When you come in for your initial consultation, we’ll assess your goals and give you a more personalized timeline to follow. We usually have our patients come in for one session per week until optimal results are achieved.
Multiple sessions are necessary because the body needs time to build new healthy tissue. During the treatment, the old scar tissue that’s blocking the blood vessels gets broken up and the body needs time to heal itself from past damage. Many sessions repeated once weekly will ensure that the scar tissue is completely broken apart and the blood vessels are totally unblocked.
How Does This Treatment Work?
The goal of this treatment is to increase blood flow to the genitals for the purpose of revitalizing sexual performance and boosting satisfaction. The reason an erection occurs is due to increased blood flow, but aging has natural effects on the body, and this can negatively impact the penile blood vessels. GAINSWave is named for its soundwave technology and uses waves of specific frequencies to break apart the plaque that forms over the blood vessels.
The extracorporeal (or “outside the body”) shock wave therapy our treatment uses is completely painless and 100% non-invasive. The harmless nature of the treatment is thanks to the power of acoustics! The high frequencies cause vibrations that stimulate the blood vessels and encourage new ones to form. These vibrations are also responsible for the improvements in blood flow that we see in so many of our patients.
Is the Treatment Used for Anything Besides ED?
The idea of using vibrating acoustics in the medical field isn’t new or specific to treating ED. For many years, shockwave therapy has been used to encourage the body to naturally restore and revitalize muscle tissue. Shockwave therapy is also commonly used for pulverizing kidney stones that are too big to pass.
The body can build up plaque and potentially block blood vessels in many different places, which is why it’s common to see shockwave therapy being used for anything from patellar tendonitis to tennis elbow.
This disease, which is recognizable by a bend in the genitals, is also something that can be treated with our remedy. While this disease can be painful, most men find themselves struggling more so with achieving or maintaining an erection.
This disease can occur from a buildup of excess scar tissue. This might occur for a number of reasons, and some of the most common reasons include temporary/chronic injury, some surgeries, or an autoimmune disorder. Unfortunately, sometimes Peyronie’s Disease can occur simply because of normal aging. If you are suffering from this condition, give us a call as soon as possible.
Sometimes a lowered sex drive can occur even when no signs of ED are present. Low libido can be caused by many different factors, including low testosterone levels or certain medications, depression or chronic illness, stress, too much or too little exercise, prolonged alcohol or drug use, and even sleeping problems or normal aging. Men who feel disinterested in sex can also benefit from the rejuvenation that our GAINSWave treatment offers.
Possible Contributing Factors to ED
Because ED is so common, there are more than just a few culprits that can cause you to suffer from it. The natural aging process seems to increase your risk by ten percent per decade. This makes it easy to remember, as when you’re twenty your risk percentage lies at 20%, and when you’re sixty it’s at 60%.
Your lifestyle will have a big impact on your risk of developing ED, and stress is mostly to blame for this. Your diet and exercise habits will contribute to your probability of running into ED as well. This is not only because a healthy lifestyle contributes to more satisfaction in the bedroom, but also because good health prevents you from being at risk for other illnesses that could contribute to ED, such as diabetes.
The Treatment Itself: What To Expect
What Makes a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidate for our remedy will have ED and poor circulation. Those with Peyronie’s Disease are also eligible. Anyone suffering from a low sex drive is also a great candidate. Those who are in generally good health but experience frustration in the bedroom are exactly who we’re looking to help.
What Age Do I Have To Be?
The majority of the patients we see are in their 40s to 70s, but treatment is not limited to this age group. Remember that your percentage of risk increases by 10% with every new decade, so if you’re noticing occasional ED in your 30s it may behoove you to get ahead of it before you reach your 40s.
An increasing number of young men are taking a stand against the onset of ED and seeking treatment for preventative purposes. Since there’s zero downtime or downsides, no invasion, no drugs, no risk, no pain, and no side effects, this is the perfect preventative treatment to try out.
What Are the Benefits of This Remedy?
Our treatment gives men stronger, longer-lasting erections that increase sensitivity and produce more satisfying orgasms. About 75% of men who received this treatment reported enhanced bedroom performance and felt happier in their lives.
Some men also reported enhanced stamina and shorter refractory periods. Others were excited about the spontaneity they could now introduce into their sex lives.
What Will the Results Look Like?
You will start to see desirable results after a few treatment sessions. Since the sessions are spaced out on a weekly basis, most men will start noticing a difference about two months into their treatments. If you’re eager to see faster improvements, make sure you prioritize your health and give your body plenty of nutrients.
Once all your sessions are completed, you will continue to see improved blood flow and increased satisfaction for up to three years. At your initial consultation with us, we will go over your goals and design a personalized individual timeline for you to follow. Once your final treatment session is complete, we can go over how long you should wait before returning for additional sessions.
We generally tell our patients to pay close attention to their performance and schedule an appointment with us as soon as they notice they have any trouble getting or maintaining an erection. Remember that our treatment can be used preventatively, as we see the most success in patients who stay ahead of ED symptoms and schedule their appointments promptly.
GAINSWave Compared to Pills for ED
While that famous little blue pill can work short-term, it doesn’t make any lasting changes and results only stay for a few hours. Our treatment tackles the issue at its root to ensure a longer-lasting solution, and this is especially true if poor blood flow is the cause of your ED. In addition to only being a temporary solution, oral ED medications come with a host of both short and long-term side effects.
Short-term side effects include dizziness, headaches, numbing sensations, and gastrointestinal distress. Long-term side effects can include insomnia, muscle pain, light sensitivity, and even hearing problems. Pills also typically have diminishing returns and dependence can be a concern. Most importantly, pills regulate your sexual encounters, and you lose out on the spice of spontaneity.
GAIN Your Confidence Back
Gone are the days in which we had to treat our ED with small blue pills that have side effects. Health and wellness centers like ours have been working tirelessly to create easy, cost-effective, non-invasive treatment options for the aging symptoms we face, and GAINSWave is one of them. If you’re ready to improve your overall quality of life, schedule an appointment with us here at Tru-Male Medical in Oak Brook, IL right now.
