Erectile dysfunction affects millions of men each year. This common problem can make it hard to achieve or maintain an erection, but perhaps the worst thing about ED is the silence surrounding it. If you’re struggling with ED, you’re far from alone, and GAINSWave is a great option for addressing the problem naturally. At Tru-Male Medical in Oak Brook, IL, we offer this treatment and can tell you everything you need to know about who qualifies, how quickly it works, and more.
Who Is a Good Candidate for GAINSWave?
The typical candidate for this treatment suffers from erectile dysfunction that is caused by poor circulation. It’s important to note that while poor circulation is the cause of about 4/5ths of ED, ED can sometimes be caused by other factors that GAINSWave cannot help with. However, if you have Peyronie’s disease, this treatment might also help you.
About Peyronie’s Disease
Peyronie’s Disease is characterized by a bending of the penis. This bending is caused by the build-up of scar tissue. In some cases, this bend in the penis can cause pain, but in many cases, pain is not the primary problem. Instead, the issue with Peyronie’s is the inability to achieve a full erection or the inability to keep an erection going.
Peyronie’s Disease can be caused by a number of issues, but the most common reasons a man might develop too much scar tissue in the penis are:
- Acute injury
- Chronic injury
- Autoimmune disorder
Am I Too Old for This Treatment?
The average man feels his sex drive starting to wane in his late 30s and into his 40s. This usually has more to do with the busyness of life than anything else: we’re trying to care for homes, kids, aging parents, and friendships while simultaneously advancing in a career. These pressing life issues can make us much less interested in sex than we were in our younger years. During this period, it’s not uncommon for men to ignore ED as long as it’s only occasional.
However, many men find that their sex drive revives in their 50s and beyond. Children grow up, we tend to have more financial security, and there’s simply more time to focus on an important intimate relationship. Unfortunately, just about the time our lives stabilize and we find ourselves more interested in sex, we can also find our bodies starting to fail us. The natural aging process takes its toll, we find ourselves less physically active, which reduces the efficiency of circulation throughout the body, and years of alcohol and tobacco consumption can also factor in.
The good news is you’re not too old for GAINSWave. If you’re in your 50s or 60s, this treatment can effectively break up arterial plaque in the penis and encourage the growth of healthy new blood vessels.
Am I Too Young for Treatment?
Your risk for ED tends to increase by decade of life. About 50% of men in their 50s, 40% of men in their 40s, 30% of men in their 30s, and 20% of men in their 20s have experienced at least occasional bouts of ED. This could be due to injury or surgery, but it’s also possible to experience circulatory issues leading to ED because of overconsumption of alcohol, chronic nicotine intake, or a sedentary lifestyle.
If you’re experiencing erectile dysfunction as a younger man, there’s a good chance that GAINSWave can help. No one wants to start taking pills when they’re young and face the possibility of requiring medication for a lifetime. This treatment could give you the relief you need without any need for little blue pills and accompanying side effects.
How Does GAINSWave Work?
This treatment uses sound waves to improve circulation. The high-frequency, low-intensity sound waves break up scar tissue and plaques in the arteries. They also generate a gentle warmth that encourages the growth of new blood vessels. The more blood vessels you have in your penis, the stronger and more sustainable your erections are likely to be.
How Effective Is It?
This treatment has been administered to many men, all across the world, and dozens of clinical trials have been done to prove the effectiveness and safety of this treatment. This is an FDA-approved treatment for erectile dysfunction, with a clinical success rate of more than 75%.
This treatment is incredibly effective. Around the world, over 30 clinical trials have been conducted to evaluate the efficacy of this sound wave treatment, and it is so effective that the FDA has approved it for the treatment of ED. This treatment has been used even longer in the EU than it has here in the United States, and it has an excellent track record.
When you come to see us for a consultation, we’ll help you understand everything to expect during treatment. In general, however, you should be expecting a quick and painless treatment. It only takes about 15 to 20 minutes, and no injections or incisions are required.
You can expect to see results in about four to five months. There are a couple of factors that will affect this timeline, including how severe your ED is. In most cases, the best thing to do is to schedule one to two sessions per week. Mild cases of ED may only need six treatments in total, meaning that a course of treatments can be finished in about three weeks. Final results will typically appear in fewer than four months.
If you have a severe case involving a lot of penile damage, it could take as many as a dozen treatments to finish your course. In this case, you may need closer to five months before you start to notice a real change.
Immediately vs Final Results
Four to five months can seem like a long tie to wait for an improvement in your sex life, but it’s important to know that this timeline is only how long you’ll need to wait to see your final results. Typically, men see initial results much more quickly. Some men will notice a difference the night of their first treatment session. Many others see a positive change within three to seven days.
Even one session will break up quite a lot of arterial plaque, but you need to allow your body a bit of time to build up new blood vessels. These new blood vessels will improve blood flow to the penis and allow you much stronger and more consistent erections.
How Long Do Results Last?
The duration of results depends on the individual person, but most men will see results that last for about three years. If you start to notice that it’s becoming harder to attain or keep an erection, it’s likely time to schedule a follow-up session. The sooner you do this, the fewer sessions you are likely to need in order to keep blood flow consistent.
Is This a Better Treatment Than Pills?
Everyone has heard of the “little blue pill,” and some men do find this an effective solution in the short term. Just because these pills can work, however, does not make the ideal, especially for ED caused by poor circulation. These pills can improve blood flow for a few hours, but they come with some serious side effects. They can cause headaches, dizziness, gastrointestinal problems, and numbness.
Perhaps worst of all, these pills essentially regulate your sex life. Instead of being able to spontaneously respond to your partner, you have to take these pills several hours before you plan to have sex. Over time, it’s also common for men to become psychologically dependent on these pills so that they cannot ever achieve an erection without one. As they take the pills over and over, new side effects of dependence can develop, like:
- Muscle pain
- Hearing problems
- Light sensitivity
