Does A GAINSWave Treatment Hurt?
With the significant role that sexual health plays in the lives of most men and women, experiencing problems with your sexual function can certainly be frustrating. Many men and women struggle with sexual dysfunction in one form or another, though it is rarely discussed openly and often goes untreated. This can lead to permanent damage, psychological disorders, and tension in your relationship. Board-certified physician and medical director of Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center Dr. Marcel Thompson is proud to help Houston, TX area patients regain their confidence in the bedroom through a variety of innovative and exciting treatments designed to improve sexual function and make intimacy enjoyable again.
For men, erectile dysfunction (ED) is one of the most common sexual health afflictions and typically develops or progresses with age, though there can be other causes, such as psychological trauma or certain medications. While there are a variety of treatment options available for erectile dysfunction, many require invasive surgery or expensive prescriptions and come with a long list of potential side effects. Dr. Thompson and the knowledgeable team at Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center are excited to offer the breakthrough GAINSWave® treatment system as a noninvasive, drug-free, and long-lasting alternative to traditional ED therapies.
What is GAINSWave?
GAINSWave therapy is an innovative and exciting treatment method designed to enhance a man’s erections through the use of low-intensity, high-frequency ultrasonic energy. These sound waves effectively break up the plaque in the penis to improve blood flow and encourage the growth of new, healthy blood cells, leading to a better quality of erections, more spontaneous erections, stronger orgasms, enhanced sexual performance, and more. Some of the most enjoyed aspects of GAINSWave treatment when compared to other erectile dysfunction therapies include:
- Usually pain-free
- No downtime
- No side effects
- Long-lasting results
How does GAINSWave work?
During your GAINSWave session at Venus Restorative Health and Wellness Center, you will lie comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms. Your experienced and professional technician or provider will administer the GAINSWave treatment by passing the ultrasound device over the penis and genitals for several minutes. This pattern is repeated several times to ensure a comprehensive result. The treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes and can be performed conveniently during your lunch break. At the conclusion of the treatment session, Dr. Thompson will check in with you, examine the treatment area, and then release you to return to work or home. Most patients are able to resume their normal daily activities immediately with no restrictions and no downtime, making GAINSWave an ideal treatment option for men with demanding jobs and active lifestyles.
Does GAINSWave hurt?
The idea of having shockwave therapy performed on the penis can certainly sound frightening, but the treatment is actually considered pain-free in most cases. Patients often describe the feeling of GAINSWave therapy as a light tapping sensation, and it is generally well-tolerated. If you have concerns about pain, we are more than happy to apply a topical numbing ointment to the area to enhance your comfort during your GAINSWave treatment session.
How many GAINSWave sessions do you need?
The number of GAINSWave treatments required to achieve an ideal result can vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of symptoms and other factors. To maximize the effects of GAINSWave, Dr. Thompson encourages patients to undergo multiple treatment sessions at consistent intervals. In general, men usually choose to have about 6 – 12 GAINSWave sessions to achieve their sexual health goals.
Is there an alternative to GAINSWave therapy?
During your initial consultation, our knowledgeable team will answer all of your questions and discuss the available options to help you decide which treatment may be most appropriate for you. Another popular option for improving erections is the P-Shot®. This minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatment utilizes a patient’s own platelet-rich plasma, a component of the blood, to safely and effectively improve certain aspects of his sexual health. If you are interested in learning more about the P-Shot and other treatment options, don’t hesitate to call one of our friendly team members today.
