Shockwave - ED
The Future of Performance
What is Shockwave - ED?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition in which a man has difficulty getting or maintaining an erection that is firm enough for sexual activity. It can also be referred to as impotence. ED is a common problem, affecting men of all ages.
Shockwave therapy is a relatively new treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) that involves delivering low-intensity shockwaves to the penis. The idea behind this therapy is that the shockwaves can stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and improve blood flow to the penis, which can improve erectile function.
Shockwave therapy is considered a safe and relatively non-invasive treatment option for ED. However, it is important to note that not all men with ED are good candidates for this therapy, and it should only be performed by a qualified healthcare provider.
A typical session takes approximately 20 minutes.
Benefits of Shockwave - ED
How does it work?Cellulite therapy involves the application of pulsed acoustic waves to specific body tissues. As the human body is predominantly composed of water, these waves travel through the tissue, generating a cascade of reactions due to the forces exerted. The pulses of vibrational waves penetrate deep into the tissues, causing damage to the fat cells and connective tissues. Subsequently, the body's natural healing process replaces the damaged tissues with new collagen, resulting in smoother and firmer skin. The newly generated collagen and tissues are denser, leading to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance than before the treatment.
What should I expect?We recommend wearing loose comfortable clothing to the treatment. Depending on the body part being treated, we may have you change into a gown to make the area being treated more accessible. A gel will be applied to your skin to improve the effectiveness of the treatment. We try to keep the gel warm, but sometimes it may feel cold when applied. The therapist will use a handheld device that emits shockwaves to your treatment area. The device is moved over your skin in a circular motion, and the intensity of the shockwaves can be adjusted based on your comfort level. You may feel a slight tingling or vibrating sensation during the treatment, but it should not be painful. Some patients describe the sensation as similar to a deep tissue massage.
How many sessions are recommended?Depending on your goals and the severity of your cellulite, you may need multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. A typical treatment plan may involve 8-12 sessions starting at two times per week. Ultimately, the number of sessions recommended will depend on your individual needs and goals, and should be discussed with a qualified practitioner or healthcare provider.
What should I expect after the treatment?You may experience some mild redness, soreness or bruising in the treatment area, but this should resolve within a few days. It is important to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by your therapist, such as avoiding vigorous exercise, hot baths, or sun exposure for a certain period of time and to drink plenty of water to aid in the detoxification process. Additionally, if you experience any unusual or persistent symptoms after a session, it's important to consult with your healthcare provider to rule out any underlying health concerns.
Are there contraindications?Cellulite therapy is generally considered safe, but there are certain medical conditions and situations where it may not be recommended. Here is a list of contraindications: Pregnancy/Breastfeeding Blood clotting disorders Blood thinner medications Active cancer Nerve or blood vessel disorders Active infections in the area being treated Open wounds or sores in the area being treated Pacemakers or other implanted devices Epilepsy or seizure disorders Skin or tissue disorders
