Peyronie’s disease is an unpleasant condition that can cause a man’s penis to curve painfully during erections. The good news is there are effective treatments available, including GAINSWave therapy. In this blog post, we’ll explain what Peyronie’s disease is and how GAINSWave can help break down the scar tissue that causes the problem.

What Is Peyronie’s Disease?

Peyronie’s disease occurs when scar tissue forms inside the penis. This scar tissue can cause the penis to bend or curve during erections. In some cases, the curvature is severe enough to make intercourse impossible. Peyronie’s disease can also cause painful erections and erectile dysfunction.

The cause of Peyronie’s disease is not known, but it is thought to be the result of an injury to the penis. In some cases, surgery or other procedures that damage the tissue inside the penis can trigger Peyronie’s disease. The condition is also more common in men with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or Dupuytren’s contracture. In some cases, the specific cause is unknown.

How GAINSWave Therapy Can Help

GAINSWave therapy is a non-invasive treatment for erectile dysfunction that uses high-frequency sound waves to break down scar tissue and improve blood flow to the penis. The therapy has been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials, and it has helped many men with Peyronie’s disease regain normal sexual function.

GAINSWave therapy does four important things:

  1. Helps new blood vessels to grow
  2. Causes growth of new nerve tissue
  3. Increases nitric oxide
  4. Breaks down scar tissue

The Procedure

GAINSWave therapy is performed in-office and only takes a few minutes. If the treatment is combined with other therapies, such as the Emsella chair and shockwave therapy, it can take 30 to 45 minutes. Before the treatment begins, a numbing cream is applied to your penis and testicles. You won’t feel anything during your treatment. Side effects are rare but may include temporary bruising or numbness in the treated area.

You will need between 6 and 12 treatments to experience optimal results, but many patients report improved erections after one or two treatments!

Straighten Your Curve

Peyronie’s disease can be a painful and debilitating condition, but there are treatments available that can help. GAINSWave therapy is a safe and effective option for men with Peyronie’s disease, and it has been shown to improve sexual function in clinical trials. If you think you may have Peyronie’s disease, talk to your doctor about GAINSWave therapy as a potential treatment option.
