How Shockwave Therapy for ED Works
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a problem that has been reaching epidemic numbers – 1 out of 10 men globally suffer from the condition. ED affects not only men, but also their partners; it affects the quality of both their sex life and their overall happiness.
GAINSWave is a scientifically proven therapy that uses high frequency acoustical waves, providing a breakthrough solution for men seeking better erections and optimal sexual performance. It is completely drug-free, pain-free and surgery free.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, commercially known as GAINSWave, uses high frequency acoustical waves therapy that, when applied to the male genitals, breaks up the micro-plaque in existing blood vessels and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels. The resulting improved blood flow helps any man, not only those with erectile dysfunction, to obtain stronger and more sustainable erections.
Scientifically proven to increase blood flow to the penis and optimize erections, sensitivity, and sexual performance.
Long-lasting results include treating erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease at the root by increasing blood flow and nerve tissue.
Safe & Comfortable
Non-invasive and simple in-office procedure uses high frequency, low intensity sound waves that require no surgery or use of any drugs.
“As a bonus, these same shockwaves also have the ability to “wake-up” dormant stem cells in the penis, which can lead to improved erectile function and enhanced tissue growth.”
– Ben Greenfield in his article The Most Potent Natural Alternative to ED Pills. Also featured in Men’s Health.
What Are the Benefits?
By expanding existing blood vessels and generating new ones, GAINSWave helps to improve blood flow to the penis and offers men substantial benefits.
The resulting improvement in blood flow helps any man, not only those with erectile dysfunction, to obtain stronger, larger and more sustainable erections.
