Men’s Sexual Health

Are you seeking a healthier sex life with more spontaneity and enjoyment? Do you sometimes experience a decline in sexual performance? Have medications been prescribed and they are not working as well or not working at all?

A lower sex drive, loss of sensitivity and decreased quality of erection are often thought of as common symptoms men experience as they get older However, a transient decline in sexual performance can affect men of any age. A change in performance can be noticed in your mid to late thirties. By the age of 50, over half (52%) of men suffer some form of Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Here are the numbers:

  • Men in their 20s: 2 out of 10
  • Men in their 30s: 3 out of 10
  • Men in their 40s: 4 out of 10
  • Men in their 50s and older: More than 5 to 6 out of 10.

ED is not just about sexual performance. It can be a early sign of underlying problems. Plaque build up in your blood vessels, decreased nerve function, a decline of tissue growth factor production and loss of ability to relax smooth muscles are the root causes of vasculogenic ED (ED caused by blood vessel problems.) It is critical to address these root causes to enhance sexual performance. Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, Hormone Imbalance, Hypertension, Obesity, Autoimmune Disease, Metabolic Syndrome, Sleep Disorders, Peyronie’s Disease, Certain Medications, Prostate Cancer Treatments, Prostate Enlargement, Alcohol and Smoking are associated with ED.

Medications such as viagra, cialis and Trimix have been go to treatments for ED. Initially, they may be effective, but over time they don’t work as well. Why? Because they don’t address the root causes of ED. They also don’t help with spontaneity or inspire performance confidence.

Your ability to get and maintain an erection is not a simple thing. Your blood vessels, neurotransmitters, growth factors, brain, nerves and ability to make energy drives your sexual performance. How well things work and work together makes erectile function possible.

Sexual performance is a reflection of your overall physical, mental and social well-being. It is an important part of who you are and critical for intimacy and a healthy relationship with your partner. Sadly, many patients are not able to address this part of their health with their doctor. It is a condition that is often ignored and undertreated.

If the blood doesn’t flow, sex is a no go.

What does Gainswave do? 

The GAINSWave procedure breaks up plaque formation in blood vessels and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the penis. This increases the blood flow to the penis and improves sexual function. In addition, the GAINSWave procedure activates the growth of new nerve tissue in the penis.

This process, called neurogenesis, enhances sensitivity in the penis. Because GAINSWave uses low-intensity sound waves and is non-invasive, it is often referred to as Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (LI-ESWT).

GAINSWave uses acoustic sound waves to promote enhanced blood flow, blood vessel growth and healing, improved nerve performance (increased sensitivity) and increased production of tissue healing and growth factors.
