One innovative therapy uses low-intensity shockwaves to provide long-term relief of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) symptoms. Dr. Patrick McNamara of The Skin Renewal Center offers BTL Cellutone treatment for ED in his Montrose, Houston, TX, office.
Aren't I too young for ED?
Although your chance of developing ED increases as you age, it's not uncommon to experience trouble achieving or maintaining erections as early as your 30s or 40s. About 30 million men in the U.S. are affected by ED. Despite the fact that the condition is fairly common, many men feel uncomfortable talking about sexual problems. As a result, they may not seek treatment that could help them overcome their erection difficulties.
ED doesn't just affect your ability to have sex, but can also lower your self-esteem. In a society that regards sexual activity as an essential aspect of masculinity, it's difficult not to feel inadequate if you develop ED. Those feelings can affect your personal relationships and lead to feelings of anxiety and depression.
What can I do about ED?
Erections occur when blood engorges your penis during sexual arousal. If blood can't flow freely through your penis, your erection won't be as firm, or you may not be able to achieve an erection at all. Prescription medications increase blood flow to the penis but only offer temporary relief of ED issues.
BTL Cellutone therapy treats blood flow issues within the penis that can cause erectile problems. Your Montrose, Houston doctor uses the BTL Cellutone device to send low-intensity acoustic pulse waves into your penis. The pulse waves break up micro-plaques which clog blood vessels. In addition, the pulse waves promote production of nitric acid. Nitric acid increases blood circulation and also stimulates new blood vessels to form in your penis.
The painless treatment improves blood flow problems without prescription medications or invasive surgery.
