Here at Ascension Health, we are proud to provide GAINSWave® services to our male patients struggling with sexual dysfunction. This treatment uses low-intensity sound waves, also known as acoustic wave therapy, to help deliver increased blood flow to the penis and improve sexual function with harder and more sustainable erections. This procedure has even proven to be helpful for those men who have erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.
While treatment times vary depending on your specific condition, most patients need 6 to 12 sessions for the treatment to be most effective. In each 15 to 20 minute session, we will be able to break up plaque that has formed in existing blood vessels, stimulate the generation of new blood vessels, and activate dormant stem cells that will also help with cell production. This process will increase blood flow and allow for enhanced sensitivity in the penis.
