How Long Do Acoustic Wave Therapy Results Last?
There are no two ways around it: erectile dysfunction (ED) takes a toll on well-being, sexual wellness, and self-confidence. Traditional medications provide temporary relief, but they don’t address the root causes. At The Novus Center in Studio City, CA, we have a more effective treatment that solves rather than masks – acoustic wave therapy.
Explaining Acoustic Wave Therapy
ED is a complex condition with the potential for different causes. Generally speaking, however, the foremost of these causes is improper blood flow. To better understand, we need to explain that strong, healthy erections require strong, healthy blood flow. Inefficient or depleted blood vessels can make it difficult, if not impossible, for men to achieve erections.
This is where acoustic wave therapy comes in. Also known as shockwave therapy, it harnesses the power of vibrational energy to stimulate blood vessel growth and regeneration in the penis. This energy also breaks up plaque that slowly builds within penile arteries. In turn, blood flow improves in a multitude of ways for rejuvenated tissues and functionality.
A Deeper Look at Treatment
Acoustic waves are low-intensity vibrations that transmit energy. They have the ability to travel through the skin for delivery to a targeted site. In this case, we are targeting the penis.
As the vibrations are transmitted, they cause micro-trauma that induces the body’s natural healing responses. Specific to ED, this means cell regeneration, new tissue growth, and improved blood flow (as mentioned earlier).
How It’s Different from Other Options
Shockwave therapy does not mask symptoms as most oral medications do. That approach is dated, turning sex from a spontaneous moment of intimacy into a pre-planned event. In addition, pills help patients sustain erections only temporarily; they also come with a host of unwanted side effects, ranging from blurred vision and back pain to dizziness and stomach upset.
Shockwave therapy treats the root problem of depleted blood flow. In so doing, it reverses the effects of ED so men can achieve and maintain erections. Specific results after treatment include:
- Restored morning erections
- Natural and spontaneous erections (without medication)
- Greater stamina
- Improved performance
- Erections with medication (if previously ineffective)
How Long Do Results Last?
With this treatment, you can say good-bye to temporary results. No longer will therapy last for just one night. Instead, patients enjoy the effects of shockwave therapy for between two and three years. Personal factors like lifestyle choices and overall health influence this timeline, but the treatment has shown to be far more permanent than most other options.
In addition, results can show almost immediately after treatment. For example, many men report instant improvements to the strength and longevity of their erections. Full results are revealed within three weeks. The goal is to help men stop taking prescription pills to treat ED, but for those who still need them, this treatment increases their efficacy.
The Many Benefits
After years of therapy burdened by side effects, men will be happy to learn shockwave treatment poses no unwanted effects. Instead, it stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to stimulate tissue growth and nerve regeneration.
In addition, it is a comprehensive, non-invasive, and pain-free treatment that’s already been proven to treat other conditions, including joint pain and prostate problems. The vibrations stimulate a gentle, natural process within the body that helps men achieve confidence in the bedroom with harder erections.
Less Refractory Time
In speaking openly about ED, we need to discuss the many components of sex. One of those is the refractory period, or the time it takes to recover from orgasm to again feel sexual arousal. This widely varies among people, but we do know men generally need more time than women. We also know that with age, this period extends.
Shockwave therapy helps decrease the refractory period from days, or longer, so you can enjoy a more fulfilling sex life. This is just as important as restoring erections, not only to make men feel more confident but to also unite couples with increased intimacy.
Oral medications can potentially help men achieve erections, but that doesn’t mean they make sex enjoyable. A loss of sensation often accompanies ED because nerves and tissues are weakened. This creates moments of intimacy that simply don’t satisfy, a problem that can plague both partners and make sex increasingly uncomfortable.
Every cell within the body needs oxygen to remain healthy, and as blood flow to the penis increases, nerves, and tissues in that site become stronger. Sensation ultimately improves so that sex once again becomes pleasurable.
Relief From Peyronie’s Disease (PD)
PD largely arises from scar tissue that makes erections painful or impossible. Until now, men with this condition had very few treatment options: surgery or supplements.
However, studies show shockwave therapy can substantially improve erectile function by reducing plaque in arteries. This, in turn, has the same effect we’ve already discussed: stronger blood flow for healthier erections.
We saved this benefit for last because it is the most obvious. It is also the primary reason for treatment, meaning the other benefits are simply added bonuses. In restoring erections so they are harder and longer-lasting, we also restore a patient’s quality of life. This means men viewing themselves more positively, having greater intimacy with partners, and enjoying improved health.
Shockwave therapy can be appropriate for almost all men with ED, especially those with mild to moderate symptoms. It is even safe for diabetic patients, as this disease is known to commonly restrict blood flow and prevent hard erections.
Our office proudly uses NOVOWave technology. Eighty percent of patients who have received this treatment experienced a condition reversal.
