Penile curvature is not always a cause for concern. In fact, it is estimated that one in 11 men have at least some curvature, and in most cases, it doesn’t cause discomfort. However, if the bend is significant, it can be classified as Peyronie’s disease and cause pain, making it difficult to perform sexually.
If this is the case for you, we can help. At Skin MD, we offer the latest in FDA-approved treatments to give you control over your body and health. Our GAINSWave® treatments can address penile curvature without surgery or medications. If you’re interested, we welcome you to schedule a consultation at a Skin MD office near you.
What Causes Peyronie’s Disease?
The cause of Peyronie’s disease isn’t entirely understood. However, it has been shown that repeated injury to the penis may be to blame. When the penis is injured during sex, athletic activity, or during an accident, scar tissue forms during the healing process. In some cases, this scar tissue tends to be disorganized, leading to the development of a nodule or curve in the penis.
When the penis becomes erect, scar tissue doesn’t stretch properly. This makes the penis bend abnormally, causing pain. Interestingly, research has shown that this disease can develop over time in some men, even without having sustained an injury.
Treatments for Peyronie’s Disease
GAINSWave® is a revolutionary system that can improve erectile dysfunction and effectively treat Peyronie’s disease. This treatment relies on low-intensity shockwaves to break up the scar tissue and create new blood vessels. When new blood vessels develop, blood is able to flow freely into the penis, causing the curvature to diminish. The main advantage of this treatment is that it is non-invasive, non-surgical, and doesn’t involve any potentially harmful medications.
What Results Can I Expect?
Those who have tried GAINSWave® have reported several benefits, including stronger erections and increased sensation. When it comes to curvature, several sessions may be needed to get the results you want. The number of sessions depends on the severity of your condition. That is why it is important to schedule a consultation before committing to this treatment. The good news is that GAINSWave® doesn’t involve surgery and doesn’t require significant downtime after a session.
