Millions of men suffer from erectile dysfunction, and many more are reluctant to seek treatment because of the social stigma attached to the condition. At Rejuvené MD in El Paso, TX, we offer cutting-edge PulseWave RX therapy as well as intracavernosal pharmaceutical therapies to help our patients overcome their ED problems. With our treatments, you can say goodbye to ED and enjoy a healthy and fulfilling sex life once again.
How Can You Treat Erectile Dysfunction?
Intracavernosal Pharmaceutical Therapy
Intracavernosal pharmaceutical therapy, or IPT, involves injecting a medication called alprostadil into the base of the penis. Alprostadil is a vasodilator, which means it relaxes the smooth muscle tissue in the penis and increases blood flow to the area. This increased blood flow results in an erection. IPT is an effective treatment option for many men with ED, and it can be used on an as-needed basis or on a regular schedule.
PulseWave RX Therapy
PulseWave RX is a sound wave therapy that uses low-intensity sound wave technology to break up plaque deposits that have formed in the arteries. The result is better erections and increased sexual satisfaction for our patients. PulseWave RX has been shown to be an effective treatment for ED on its own or in combination with other therapies such as PRP injections.
The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from the patient’s own blood. A small sample of blood is drawn from the arm and placed in a centrifuge. This machine spins the blood at a high speed, which separates the platelets from the other blood cells. The PRP is then injected into the penis. When injected into the penis, the PRP releases growth factors that stimulate the formation of new blood vessels. This increase in blood flow leads to better erections.
Benefits of PulseWave RX Therapy
There is no surgery required, and the treatment is typically done in under an hour.
Studies have shown that PulseWave RX therapy in combination with PRP is an effective treatment for ED. Our patients report an improvement in their erections within a few days after undergoing the treatment.
3. Long-Lasting Results
The effects of PulseWave RX therapy can last for up to two years. This means that you can enjoy normal erections without having to worry about the side effects associated with other ED treatments.
PulseWave RX therapy is a safe and well-tolerated treatment with minimal, if any, side effects.
5. Improves Sexual Function
Not only does PulseWave RX therapy improve erections, but it also helps improve sexual function in other ways. For example, it can help men with orgasmic dysfunction achieve orgasm and improve sexual satisfaction
Ways To Help Your Body Stay in Optimal Health
1. Eat a Healthy Diet
There are many different factors that can contribute to ED, but one of the most important is blood flow. A healthy diet can help improve blood flow by keeping your arteries clear and your heart healthy. Foods that are high in antioxidants, such as fruits and vegetables, help to protect the arteries from damage.
Eating plenty of soluble fiber can also help reduce cholesterol levels, which can improve blood flow. In addition, eating omega-3 fatty acids has been shown to improve blood flow and reduce inflammation. You should also avoid processed foods such as fried foods and refined carbs if you have ED.
2. Exercise Regularly
Exercise is a key part of maintaining a healthy body, and this is especially true when it comes to sexual health. For men, exercise can help to improve blood flow to all the right places, ensuring that erections are harder and longer-lasting. In addition, exercise can help to reduce stress levels, which can be a major cause of erectile dysfunction.
3. Talk to Your Partner About Sexual Expectations and Concerns
This can be a difficult conversation, but it’s an important one. By talking openly, you can help to identify any potential problems that may be contributing to the ED. You may also be able to find new ways to enjoy sexual activity. In addition, talking about sexual expectations can help to reduce performance anxiety, which can also be a cause of erectile dysfunction.
4. Manage Health Conditions That Can Cause ED
There are a number of health conditions that can contribute to erectile dysfunction, and managing these conditions can help improve ED symptoms. Some of the most common health conditions that can cause ED include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity.
Diabetes can damage small blood vessels in the nerves that are involved in erections, and obesity can lead to hormonal imbalances that can interfere with sexual function. In addition, cardiovascular disease can reduce blood flow to the penis, making it difficult to achieve and maintain an erection.
5. Quit Smoking
Studies have shown that men who smoke cigarettes are more likely to develop ED than men who do not smoke. Cigarette smoking can damage the blood vessels, including those that supply blood to the penis. This can lead to ED by reducing the amount of blood that flows to the penis. In addition, cigarette smoking can damage the tissue in the penis, making it less elastic and more difficult to maintain an erection.
In addition to these physical effects, cigarette smoking can also have a negative impact on sexual performance by affecting sexual desire and libido. Nicotine, the main active ingredient in cigarettes, can interfere with sexual arousal by desensitizing the nerves in the genitals. As a result, quitting smoking may be one of the best things you can do for your sexual health.
6. Quit Alcohol
Alcohol is a depressant and has been linked with poor sexual performance. Heavy drinking can damage the nerves that control erections. It can also diminish the production of testosterone, which can lead to ED. In addition, alcohol abuse can cause other health problems that can contribute to ED, such as high blood pressure, liver damage, and nerve damage.
There are several hormones that play a role in sexual performance. When these hormones are imbalanced, it can lead to problems with sexual performance. Androgens are hormones that are responsible for the development of secondary sex characteristics in males.
Testosterone is the most well-known androgen. Testosterone is responsible for the development of sperm and the maintenance of erections. Low levels of testosterone can lead to problems with sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, and infertility.
During your consultation, we will take a detailed medical history. This will include questions about any illnesses or conditions you have, as well as any medications you’re currently taking. We will also ask about your lifestyle habits, such as whether you smoke or drink alcohol regularly. Be prepared to answer these questions honestly, as they’ll help us determine the best treatment for you. We may also order some tests, such as blood tests or urine test.
These tests will help us identify or rule out any underlying health conditions that could be causing your ED. After taking all of this information into account, we will talk to you about your treatment options. These may include laser therapy, PRP, lifestyle changes, or a combination of these approaches.
At your follow-up appointments, we will ask about your symptoms and how you’ve responded to treatment. Be sure to be honest and open about any concerns you have. This is also a good time to ask any questions you may have about your treatment or the side effects that you may be experiencing.
In addition to talking about your symptoms, we will likely perform a physical exam and order some blood tests. This will help to determine if your current treatment is working as intended and make any necessary adjustments. This may include changing the dose of your medication or trying a different type of medication altogether.
