Sometimes it is difficult for men to talk about Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Impotence, as it is commonly known, affects not only men but also their partners, as a problem affecting the romantic life and the emotional health of the couple. It’s essential for the couple to understand that ED is very common, most studies suggest that at least 50% of men in the U.S. experience some form of sexual dysfunction at some point in their lives, thus being one of the most common male sexual problems. Ignoring the problem is not a solution; it would likely get worse with time.
What is Erectile Dysfunction and what causes it? Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to obtain and/or maintain a penile erection, enough for satisfactory sexual performance. Good blood supply is essential for an adequate erection. Achieving an erection involves many things, from brain signals and hormones, to nerves, muscles and good blood vessels. The presence of ED, is usually an early sign of vascular problems that needs to be evaluated. Cholesterol “plaque” and “calcified” arteries affect blood flow to the penis ultimately causing ED. This has to be improved to successfully correct ED.
What is the good news? Erectile dysfunction could be cured in many men. Neowaves Low-Intensity Shockwave therapy (LiSWT) is a non-invasive, painless, very safe, proven treatment with excellent results directed to increase the blood supply to the penis. More blood flow, better erections! This treatment is designed to correct the damaged blood vessels of the penis and not to provide temporary “patch”, like most of the current available interventions, like oral medications (“blue” pill) or painful penile injections.
How does it work? Neowaves (LiSWT) are audible energy soundwaves used to treat ED. The treatment session consists on applying these soundwaves directly to the penis destroying plaque buildup in the blood vessels and stimulating the creation of new good quality blood vessels, improving blood flow in the penis and obtaining a GREAT erection. It is a simple and painless procedure that takes less than 30 minutes and is performed at the office. No downtime, no side effects. We follow scientifically proven European Guidelines and the results are long lasting.
