Low-Intensity R-Wave Therapy
What Is Low-Intensity R-Wave Therapy?
Low-Intensity R-Wave Therapy (R-wave) is the first treatment made available for erectile dysfunction (ED) caused by impaired blood flow. The procedure involves applying pulsed acoustic energy waves to the penis in order to induce new vascular growth that leads to improved blood flow and enhanced natural erectile function.
What Is Involved in R-Wave Treatment?
During treatment, R-waves are transmitted to the penis using a hand-held device. Sessions take place in our comfortable R-wave suite, last approximately 15 minutes and are scheduled twice weekly for three weeks. R-wave is a safe and well-tolerated procedure that results in no downtime, requires no restrictions in activity and has no side effects.
How Soon Will Results Occur After R-Wave?
Some men begin to see improvement in their natural erectile function within a few weeks of treatment. Significant benefits should occur approximately four to six weeks after the conclusion of your treatment, according to R-wave studies.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Low-Intensity R-Wave Therapy?
R-wave therapy may not be right for every form of ED. The best candidates are men who have mild-to-moderate ED or who respond well to medications such as Viagra (Sildenafil) or Cialis (Tadalafil).
How Much Does R-Wave Treatment Cost?
A course of therapy includes six sessions in three weeks and costs $1,800. Please note that R-wave is an elective procedure and is not covered by insurance.
