Better Erections with GAINSWave Therapy
As men age, sexual performance becomes more of a concern. This is not a surprise considering that about 50% of men suffer from erectile dysfunction after age 40. Due to how common this condition along with other sexual health concerns is, it’s not hard to find treatment options out there. However, all of the treatments have varying results.
Fortunately, there is a relatively new procedure that has been making waves in the field of sexual health. A derivative of low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT), the GAINSWave procedure has become an increasingly popular option for men seeking better erections.

The History of GAINSWave
GAINSWave is designed to improve blood flow to the penis. This treatment has been noted for its ability to treat erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, and improve overall sexual function for men. The procedure was developed by Richard Gains, MD.
While still relatively new in the U.S., similar therapies have been used in Europe for years. Despite its newness within the United States, the GAINSWave therapy utilizes the only acoustic wave device cleared by the FDA for the treatment of ED and other dysfunctions.
The growth in popularity for this treatment can be attributed to the long-term results as well as the fact that unlike pills, this treatment does more than just treat the symptoms. It works to address the underlying cause of erectile dysfunction. As more research is done, this therapy is likely to increase in popularity.
Benefits of GAINSWave
Using high-frequency acoustic waves, the GAINSWave procedure opens the existing blood vessels in the penis and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels as well. In addition, as men age, they build up micro-plaque in their blood vessels, which inhibits blood flow. The procedure breaks up the micro-plaque buildup resulting in increased blood flow. The increased blood flow to the penis creates a stronger, harder, and more sustainable erection.
Besides a better erection, men can expect additional benefits with this erectile dysfunction treatment:
- Improvement in sexual performance
- Improved sensitivity
- Improved self-confidence
With the improvement in treatment options for aging penile function, there has never been a better time to make sexual performance issues a thing of the past.
Potential Side Effects of GAINSWave
Any procedure carries an element of risk. However, the GAINSWave procedure is noted as having practically no side effects making this a safer treatment compared to prescription drugs such as Viagra. In addition, the treatment has been proven to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction.
Before getting this treatment, make sure to work with a practitioner that is qualified and certified for this procedure to eliminate any risks from an improperly performed GAINSWave treatment.
