Shock wave therapy is a drug-free and non-surgical male erectile dysfunction treatment that utilises regenerative medicine to produce the blood supply a penis needs to achieve an erection. This treatment focuses on the poor blood flow that’s causing a patient to experience this condition.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
The most common cause of erectile dysfunction is an insufficient supply of blood to the penis. Some cases of erectile dysfunction may be due to urological or psychological issues.
How Does Shock Wave Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Work?
Shock wave male erectile dysfunction treatment involves a process known as neovascularitasion, where the energy produced during acoustic wave therapy creates a mini trauma in the tissue. The physician will use a wand-like probe covered with gel that’s applied to the penis to administer low-intensity shock waves. This results in the formation of new blood vessels, giving the penis more blood flow when trying to become erect.
Who Can Benefit from This Treatment?
Shock wave therapy is a recommended treatment for men that have a moderate level of erectile dysfunction. It’s also recommended for patients that may not be able to use drugs for erectile dysfunction conditions, such as patients who have heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes. All patients that come to Instant Laser Clinic will first undergo a consultation with one of our licensed physicians will who determine if they will benefit from shock wave therapy.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
This will vary from patient to patient. On average, most patients will undergo a course of 6 to 12 shockwave therapy treatments once or twice a week. Every session will be approximately fifteen to twenty minutes long.
What Results Are Possible?
Every patient will respond to the shock wave male erectile dysfunction treatment they receive differently. Some patients may experience minimal results, while others experience significant results. Every patient should undergo several sessions for the best possible result.
How Much Does Erectile Dysfunction Treatment Cost?
It costs $250 per session to receive our male erectile dysfunction treatment in Melbourne. Our in-house physician will be able to determine how many sessions are required and therefore establish an estimated overall cost for your treatment.
Does it Hurt?
Some patients may feel a tingling sensation around the areas being treated, but they will not feel any pain.
Are There Any Side-Effects?
Patients that experience moderate erectile dysfunction should not experience any side-effects at all after undergoing shock wave therapy.
