Shockwave therapy of the penis has been gaining traction as a potential treatment for erectile dysfunction and other conditions affecting the penis. While it has been documented to improve blood flow and circulation, there is no evidence that it can increase the length or girth of the penis. Some men may report an increase in size, but this is likely due to increased blood flow with an erect penis, rather than a true increase in size. Currently, the only treatments that have been proven to increase the length of the penis are extensors and cutting the suspensory ligament of the penis.
However, these treatments can cause injury and possible penile anesthesia (numbness). Penile injectables and fillers have also been used to increase circumference, but they come with a high risk of complications and are not recommended. Low-intensity shockwave therapy (LiSWT) is a 30-minute procedure that uses directed sound waves to stimulate penile tissue and encourage blood flow. This can also speed up the healing process and grow new blood vessels.
It has been shown to improve erectile function, but there is no evidence that it increases size. PRP treatments are the latest innovation when it comes to increasing penis size. This treatment is backed by science and does not make empty promises, unlike traditional methods and folk remedies. It can increase the length of erections by up to an inch and a half inch longer when it comes to circumference.
Shockwave therapy is favorably considered as a way to repair and strengthen the blood vessels of the penis and improve blood flow. The energy from shockwave therapy stimulates the growth of new blood vessels through a process called angiogenesis. This increases blood flow to the penis, which can improve erectile function. Most men receiving shockwave therapy notice a dramatic increase in their sexual response, but there is no evidence that it increases size.
Shockwave therapy is generally recommended for patients who do not respond well to medications or who do not want more invasive treatments. To learn more about this novel erectile dysfunction therapy, talk to a REGENX Health provider today.
