What is ED Shockwave Treatment?
Shockwave treatment is accomplished by utilizing a small handheld device that generates low intensity soundwaves through the penis. The sound waves stimulate the growth of new blood vessels (neovasculatization) for patients with a lack of penile arteries. The soundwaves also break up micro plaque and creates a micro inflammatory process that releases nitric oxide, a vasodilator. In addition, the shockwaves may also trigger dormant stem cells in the penis to become active again improving erectile function and tissue growth.
MECHANISM OF ACTION
The effectiveness of this modern shock wave equipment is determined by the individually selectable, dynamic and powerful energy range and the therapeutic depth of focus that can be chosen. Deep-lying areas can be treated easily. With its large focus zone it is easy to access these areas with a high degree of accuracy. These technical features also demonstrate the superiority of the treatment in comparison with other ESWT machines: due to the depth of the shockwave, both sides of the penis can be treated.
