Sex is an important aspect of being human, so it is understandably distressing when sexual intimacy is challenged by erectile dysfunction. In America, over 18 million men over the age of 20 experience regular erectile dysfunction and all the shame that comes with it. Recently, medical advancements have made it easier to treat erectile dysfunction with medication and therapies. At Male Clinic USA in Pasadena, CA our compassionate staff is proud to offer GAINSWave, a revolutionary new treatment for erectile dysfunction.
It might surprise you to learn that this treatment for erectile dysfunction is a high-tech solution rather than a biological medication. Unlike biological medications, which bypass the pathological causes of erectile dysfunction to simply restore the ability to have an erection, this is a treatment that addresses the root causes of ED.
How It Works
This treatment is based on extracorporeal shock wave therapy. Before you panic at the idea of any kind of shocking happening remotely close to one of the most sensitive areas of your body, you can rest easy in the knowledge that shock wave therapy refers to acoustic waves. Essentially, this treatment uses a high-frequency, low-intensity vibration emitted by sound waves to stimulate blood flow and restore your ability to sustain an erection.
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical medical treatment, which means that there is no risk of pain from this treatment. Shock wave treatment is a natural solution for erectile dysfunction, removing the need for foreign substances or medications to fix the main symptoms of ED. This treatment has no downtime, no risks, and no side effects that would interact negatively with any medications you might be taking.
Benefits of GAINSWave
Sometimes when things sound too good to be true, they are. But that isn’t the case with this treatment. The benefits of this treatment are many and varied, such as the non-invasive simplicity of the treatment and the lack of negative side effects. Other benefits of this treatment include:
Relieves Erectile Dysfunction
The main benefit of this treatment is that it relieves erectile dysfunction. Often times it feels like erectile dysfunction is a cage that prevents you from living your life to the fullest. This is a treatment that releases you from that cage by relieving all of the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, treating the root causes of erectile dysfunction and returning your sexual freedom to you.
Improves Erection Quality
The simple truth of the matter is that erections depend on steady blood flow, which includes the ability for blood to travel undeterred to the penis and encounter no blockages, such as micro-plaque, along the way. This treatment breaks down minor blockages and increases your body’s ability to redirect blood to the penis, which means that the quality of your erections and the length of time they last improves greatly.
Improved Refractory Period
By expanding your veins and helping generate new vessels, this treatment also helps improve your refractory period. A refractory period is the period of time between erections. As we age, we lose the ability to quickly regain an erection due in large part to decreased blood flow. This treatment restores your refractory period so that you are able to regain an erection and an interest in sex much more quickly than before.
Boost Self Confidence
For many men, the ability to sustain an erection is a statement about their manhood – and there is nothing quite as emasculating as the inability to have an erection. This treatment boosts your self-confidence and restores your self-esteem by fixing the causes and symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Additionally, the improvement of erection quality and a quicker refractory period mean that your sexual performance will improve too, which is an added boost to your restored ego.
Even knowing that this is a non-invasive treatment for erectile dysfunction, many patients are wary about what this treatment is like. Any way you look at it, this is a treatment for a very personal problem. Some patients find comfort in knowing what to expect at every stage of their treatment. Here are a few things you can plan for.
Your initial consultation will be a time where we gather a lot of information about you. We will have a frank discussion about your sexual health, particularly any issues of concern you point out, such as a lowered sex drive, an inability to form or sustain an erection, or significantly slow refractory periods. We will discuss your goals and help you decide if this treatment is right for you.
We will need medical information about you, including your general medical history, current medical issues, current medications and supplements, and any treatments you have tried for erectile dysfunction in the past. We will pay particular attention to any heart-related medical issues, such as high cholesterol or medications that contribute to high or low blood pressure. It is sometimes the case that the cause for erectile dysfunction is a medical disorder or related to medications. We may need to consult with your primary care physician before treatment.
Before your treatment, we may give you instructions to follow. These instructions will help your treatment be successful, so it is important to follow them. Some pre-treatment guidelines may include:
- Arriving early to your appointment
- Hydrating before the appointment
- Avoiding certain medications or supplements
- Avoiding alcohol or tobacco
You may be instructed to arrive to your appointment freshly showered or in comfortable clothing. We may provide you with specific instructions depending on your treatment plan.
Sessions for this treatment are fairly straightforward and simple. The first step after you are in the private treatment area will be to apply a numbing cream. The numbing cream is to ensure your comfort for the duration of the treatment and will wear off after the treatment is over.
One of our skilled technicians will use the treatment device. The device resembles a wand that is passed over the treatment area for 15 to 30 minutes, emitting a high-frequency sound that will help stimulate blood flow. Many patients report feeling a tingling or a faint buzzing during their treatment.
After your treatment, we will provide you with a list of guidelines to follow during your recovery period. These guidelines will help prepare you for what to expect after the treatment and help make sure your treatment is successful. Some post-treatment guidelines may include:
- Hydrating after the appointment
- Avoiding certain medications or supplements
- Avoiding alcohol or tobacco
After your treatment is complete, you are free to return to your normal daily activities without any restrictions. This is a treatment that has no downtime. Although it is important to follow the post-treatment guidelines, you are generally able to return to your life, including sexual activity, without delay. Many patients experience spontaneous erections during the first 24 hours after treatment.
It is possible we will recommend you have at least one other appointment as a follow-up to make sure that the treatment is effective. We will help you determine how many treatment sessions you will need as part of your treatment plan.

Diagnosis for erectile dysfunction requires a medical examination, which can be done at our clinic.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
There are many possible causes for erectile dysfunction. One of the most common causes is the hormonal changes that happen with andropause, which decrease testosterone and make it more difficult to get or sustain an erection. Other common causes of erectile dysfunction are also primarily physical, such as being overweight, having bad diet or lifestyle habits, or overusing alcohol.
Causes of erectile dysfunction can also be medical, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, injuries to the groin, and certain medications. Additionally, erectile dysfunction can be caused by neurological disorders and mental health issues, such as stress, depression, or anxiety. We will discuss all causes for erectile dysfunction at your consultation appointment.
