Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to have an erection or to keep an erection that’s strong enough for sexual intercourse. Because your hormones, nerves, muscles, and blood vessels must all work properly and in sync to have an erection, any number of underlying health problems can lead to erectile dysfunction, including:
Your sexual function can also suffer if you have a sleep disorder or you feel anxious or depressed.
To get and keep an erection, you must have adequate blood flow to your penis. Unfortunately, the same problems that occur in blood vessels throughout your body, like blockages due to plaque, can also affect your penis. As a result, you won’t have enough blood flow to have an erection.
GAINSWave is a noninvasive procedure that uses high-frequency, low-intensity sound waves to improve blood flow in the penis. After 6-12 treatments, the pulsed acoustic waves break up existing plaque and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and nerves, resulting in strong erections and optimal sexual performance.
If you’ve noticed a decline in sexual performance over the years, but you don’t have erectile dysfunction, you can still benefit from GAINSWave. Following treatment, you’ll experience stronger erections and increased sensitivity.*
GAINSWave also treats Peyronie’s disease, a condition in which scar tissue causes curvature of the penis and painful erections. The soundwaves help break down the scar tissue while restoring blood vessels, leading to healthier, pain-free erections.
The Priapus Shot or P-Shot improves erections and restores sexual response using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to heal damaged tissues in the penis. Platelets contain growth factors, which stimulate the production of collagen, blood vessels, and other new tissues needed to heal erectile dysfunction.
Dr. Smigiel draws a sample of your blood and processes it in the office to separate the platelets and produce PRP. He then injects the PRP into your penis, where the growth factors trigger new tissue growth that boosts circulation and improves the strength and quality of your erections.
