What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common type of male sexual dysfunction. It occurs when a man has trouble getting or keeping an erection. ED becomes more common as a man gets older, but it does not have to be a part of natural aging – there are treatments available. ED can be helped with pills, increased exercise, losing weight and cessation of smoking.

Erectile dysfunction is actually quite common in men of all ages. 52% of men, ages 40 to 70, have some degree of erectile dysfunction. 1 in 10 men cannot get an erection at all.

How does a man get an erection?

When a man is sexually excited, by either sexual thoughts or direct contact, the muscles in the penis relax and allow for increased blood flow through the penile arteries. As the penis fills with blood, it becomes erect and rigid. ED occurs when the blood fails to adequately flow into the penis.

What erectile dysfunction treatments are available?

A variety of pills such as Viagra, Cialis, Stendra and Levitra are often prescribed by a urologist or family practitioner. Downsides of treatment include lack of spontaneity, expensive cost of the medications, and potential progression of the dysfunction to the point that medication no longer offers benefit – even at escalated doses.

Medical devices such as vacuum devices also offer treatment but are often difficult to use, require planning and an understanding partner.

Injection of medications directly into the penis also offer men a chance to get an erection. Once again, this requires planning and a risk of an erection that will not go away after several hours.

Pressure wave erectile rejuvenation therapy is a new skin treatment that delivers ultrasonic shockwaves to stimulate regrowth of blood vessels and erectile associated improvement of blood flow. This treatment is also known as Low-Intensity Shock Wave Therapy (LI-SWT) or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Treatment (EPAT). This is a totally non-invasive skin treatment that has minimal risks and success rates in 80% of men.

How does pressure wave erectile rejuvenation work?

Rather than simply treating the symptoms of ED, Dr. David Goldberg and the physicians of Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists offer an effective solution based on regenerative medicine. Using shockwave therapy, we can restore normal penile function – giving men a harder and longer lasting erection for better penetration.

Our unique, non-surgical approach uses technology that stimulates the body’s natural healing response. Over the past decade, shockwave therapy has emerged as a leading choice therapy in orthopedics, for the treatment of kidney stones and to improve cellulite.

Shockwaves (SWs) are acoustic waves (vibrations) that carry energy. These vibrations travel through the skin, causing microtrauma, which in turn leads to the natural healing process and improvement in blood supply.

What is the cost of pressure wave erectile rejuvenation?

Because each patient is unique, the price for erectile rejuvenation will be provided after a thorough consultation with one of our board-certified physicians.

During this time, you will discuss your goals, undergo an examination, and ultimately reach an agreement regarding a treatment regimen. Our office also accepts CareCredit® and Alphaeon™ Credit to help you get the necessary treatment in a timely fashion.
