Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy For Erectile Dysfunction Treatment in Los Angeles
Low intensity shockwave therapy (LISWT), commonly known as GAINSWave or PulseWave, is a revolutionary erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment for men of all ages. At Comprehensive Urology in Los Angeles, our team of urological experts is happy to teach ED patients about LISWT and determine if they qualify for shockwave therapy.
Pulsewave: Shockwave Therapy For ED
Shockwave therapy for ED is designed to help men improve their erections. It may be that are too soft for penetration or too brief for penetration. It also helps men who struggle to achieve erections gain their potency back. Also it can be used in any man without ED who wishes to improve the quality of his erections..
LISWT is a revolutionary treatment for ED that uses low-intensity sound waves to enhance blood flow to the penis. The treatment’s pulsating sound waves simultaneously remove micro-plaque, accelerate the growth of new blood vessels, and fix damaged blood vessels in the penis. This improves blood flow and stimulates dormant stem cells and growth factors in the penis. As a result, men who receive LISWT often can achieve stronger, harder, and more sustainable erections. Some report longer duration of intercourse and enhanced sensations as well.
Treating Erectile Dysfunction
ED is one of the most prevalent sexual problems reported by men. Studies indicate ED affects up to 30 million American men, and 52% of all American men experience ED at some point in their life. It is almost certainly under-reported as well.
Many ED treatments are currently available, and these include:
- PDE5 Inhibitors: Consist of medications that increase nitric oxide levels in the penis, thereby making it easier than ever before to get and maintain an erection. Common PDE5 inhibitors include Cialis, Viagra, and Levitra. These medications are available with a prescription, but they may cause headaches, body aches and pain, digestive system issues, and other side effects.
- TriMix Injections: Involves penile self-injections to address ED symptoms. TriMix injections usually consist of three drugs and can be administered prior to sexual intercourse. Side effects of TriMix injections include numbness, redness, swelling, tenderness, and lumps on the penis and its surrounding areas, also possible scarring.
The aforementioned ED treatments sometimes cause unwanted side effects. Also, if men are dealing with preexisting medical conditions, they may not be eligible for one or more of these treatments.
Comparatively, LISWT has minimal side effects and is available to men with preexisting medical conditions. It has been shown to help men address sexual dysfunction due to ED, age, and Peyronie’s disease (condition that causes a significant bend in the penis).
How Effective Is Shockwave Therapy for ED?
Low intensity shockwave therapy may prove to be a viable substitute to traditional ED treatments. Or, it may be used in conjunction with various ED treatments to help men improve or restore erectile function.
Shockwave therapy for ED has been clinically proven to rehabilitate penile tissue without any adverse or unwanted side effects. It also has been shown to help majority of men enhance and restore erectile function without medication.

FAQs About Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy for ED
What is shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive and pill-free treatment for erectile dysfunction. It involves the use of low-intensity sound waves that eliminate plaque from blood vessels in the penis, as well as stimulate the growth and development of new blood vessels.
Research indicates that shockwave therapy may help rehabilitate erectile tissue. Additionally, research shows that shockwave therapy helps men restore erectile function without the need for pharmacotherapy.
How long do PulseWave, or GAINSWave, results typically last?
PulseWave treatment results generally last between two and three years.
Is shockwave therapy painful?
Because shockwave therapy involves the use of low-intensity sound waves, patients typically experience no pain during treatment. A shockwave therapy treatment is commonly performed in a doctor’s office and only requires about 20 to 30 minutes to complete, too.
A doctor may provide a patient with numbing cream to apply at home following a shockwave therapy treatment. Furthermore, most shockwave therapy patients can resume their normal daily activities immediately following a standard procedure, and 75% of patients experience positive results after treatment.
What are my other ED treatment options?
There is no shortage of ED treatment options available. In addition to shockwave therapy, other ED treatments include:
Lifestyle Changes: Common lifestyle changes used to treat ED include weight loss, maintaining a healthy diet, reducing or eliminating nicotine and/or alcohol consumption, exercising regularly, reducing stress, and/or getting sufficient rest.
Medication: Oral and injectable medications are sometimes used to treat ED. Oral medications often improve the nerve signals and chemical reactions that trigger erections, but they do not automatically cause erections to happen. Comparatively, injectable medications instantly trigger an erection that lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Injectable medications may cause side effects, such as pain, bleeding, and a prolonged erection.
Penis Pumps or Implants: A tension ring may be used around the base of the penis to stop blood from leaving the penis. This allows the penis to remain erect long enough to engage in sexual intercourse.
Counseling: Psychological and/or emotional factors may trigger ED. With counseling, a man may be able to identify and address the root causes of these psychological and/or emotional factors.
Surgery: Penile implants are inflatable or semi-rigid devices that may be installed on either side of the penis. An inflatable penile implant enables a man to control when and how long he can maintain an erection, while a semi-rigid device remains firm at all times.
For those who are looking for a safe, effective way to treat ED, it is crucial to consult with an expert urologist. During a consultation, a urologist learns about a patient and performs a comprehensive evaluation. A urologist then provides a personalized ED treatment recommendation designed to help a patient address ED both now and in the future. Plus, a urologist responds to a patient’s ED treatment concerns and questions and helps a patient establish realistic treatment goals. As a result, a patient knows exactly what to expect from an ED treatment and can make an informed treatment decision.
