One of the main reasons why men have weaker erections is due to poor blood flow into the penis. Blood flow may diminish due to chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. Other contributing factors include smoking, stress or the effects of ageing. With poorer blood flow, the erections becoming weaker and may not be able to sustain as long as before.
Typically, men will be popping pills or medications that help to increase blood flow to the penis like Sildenafil or Tadalafil. However, these medications do have their side effects and it can be a bit troublesome to have to rely on them for results.
With Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), it gives men hope for better erections without having to rely on pills.
How Does Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) work?
ESWT involves the use of painless, low-energy shockwaves to improve tissue and blood vessels in the body.
The handheld device is applied to the penile muscles and gentle shockwaves are sent to the treatment area.
Delivery of these shockwaves causes new blood vessels to form and thus improving blood flow and circulation to the penis. This, in turn, will improve erection in terms of strength, hardness, and also sustainability.
For men who do not have erectile issues, they may benefit from a single session as well. This is called Penile Rejuvenation.
Is it safe?
Yes ESWT is safe, painless, no downtime and no recovery needed.
How many sessions do I need?
If you have erectile dysfunction, you will need 6 sessions. If you just need a booster or enhancement, you only need a single session.
How much does each session cost?
Each session costs $400.
Are there any criteria for this treatment to be effective?
There are no specific requirements for this treatment. As long as you want a better and stronger erection, you will benefit from ESWT.
Do speak to your doctor to find out if ESWT is suitable for you.
