The Eye-Opening Pros and Cons of Acoustic Wave Therapy

If you suffer from erectile dysfunction, you aren’t alone. Studies have shown that as many as 52% of men experience some form of erectile dysfunction. Although many men suffer from this embarrassing issue, they don’t have to live with it, thanks to acoustic wave therapy at The Edge For Men.

By stimulating new blood vessel growth and repairing older blood vessels, acoustic wave therapy optimizes men’s sexual wellness safely and without pain.

Of course, like everything in life, there are some advantages and drawbacks to this revolutionary procedure. If you’re searching for a way to treat your ED, consider these pros and cons of acoustic wave therapy:


Proven Therapy – Acoustic wave therapy touts an impressive 75% success rate in reversing the effects of ED due to poor blood flow. Sound waves remove decades of microplaque, which can impede blood flow to the penis when an erection occurs. Although the success rate will depend on both the underlying cause and the severity of the patient’s problem, acoustic wave therapy has been recognized as an effective way to treat ED.

Noninvasive Treatment – As we mentioned above, you won’t need to undergo surgery with this therapy. Additionally, unlike other procedures and treatment plans, you won’t experience major side effects, and your skin, tissue, and organs will remain safe from harm during and after the procedure.

Quick and Easy – Each procedure takes about 10-15 minutes and requires no downtime. Acoustic wave therapy can also be used with other forms of ED treatment, and it has also been shown to produce incredible results for several patients.

Lasting Results – Unlike other treatments, acoustic wave therapy is considered a long-term solution for ED and can deliver positive results for 1 to 2 years.


Not a Catch-All Treatment – Even though we’ve seen fantastic results with acoustic wave therapy, it may not always treat the issue at hand. ED is a multi-faceted problem that can have a variety of causes including low testosterone levels, stress and anxiety, medications, and medical issues such as diabetes and hypertension. Results will depend on the underlying cause to the condition.

Patience Is Required – Acoustic wave therapy may take about 10-15 minutes to conduct, but it isn’t a fast-acting treatment. While the procedure can be incredibly effective, it will typically take 6 to 12 treatments for patients to see an optimal effect.

Dr. Moore will often recommend combination therapy with the acoustic wave treatments, which may include testosterone replacement therapy and/or a vacuum pump.

If you’re considering acoustic wave therapy for your ED, we advise seeking consultation with a physician who specializes in hormone replacement therapy and ED to determine the cause of the problem and treat it properly.
