eVIVE™ Acoustic Shockwave
What it treats at a glance:
Guys, if erectile dysfunction (ED) has you down, you don’t have to suffer in silence anymore. There are noninvasive, painless ways available to treat this condition. One of these proven treatments is the eVIVE™ Acoustic Shockwave system, and it’s available here at Transformative Dermatology. This revolutionary therapy restores natural erectile function by clearing plaque out of the blood vessels and encouraging growth of new vessels.
Here’s how it works.
Low-intensity sound waves generated by the eVIVE system pass through the tissue of the penis and groin area to clear out blocked blood vessels. This encourages the growth of new blood vessels which allow for much better blood flow to the penis. The result is the restoration of a natural, healthy erection for most men.
Who is a likely candidate for the treatment?
Men in stable sexual relationships who are between 30 and 70 years old and have experienced ED for more than six months but not longer than five years are the best candidates for treatment with the eVIVE system.
What can I expect before, during, and after treatment?
When you arrive at our state-of-the-art office in Franklin, TN, you’ll be taken to a private room where you’ll review and sign an informed consent form, change into a gown, lie down, and cover up with a sheet. When the noninvasive treatment begins, you’ll experience a painless vibration for approximately 20 minutes to targeted areas of your groin. Once treatment is complete, you’re free to get dressed and go on about your normal activities. There is no down time or soreness involved. We encourage you to use a penis pump for a period of time following the procedure to increase blood flow to the area and to increase results of the treatment. Pumps and instructions are available at our office if you do not already have one.
How long does the eVIVE treatment last and how many sessions are recommended for best results?
Each treatment session lasts approximately 20 minutes. We recommend anywhere between six and 12 treatments, which would be performed in our office typically three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) for consecutive weeks.
Are there any side effects? Does the procedure hurt?
Don’t worry, guys. There are no known side effects, and the treatment is safe and painless. If for any reason you may feel anxious, however, we can administer Pro-Nox™ (laughing gas) and/or utilize an Alpha-Stim® device to help make sure you are completely comfortable.
Let’s talk about what kind of results I can expect.
Many men can expect a complete cure for ED or at least an improvement of the effect of pill therapy, which can stave off the need for more invasive treatments. We know noninvasive is a huge plus when you’re talking about such a sensitive area, right?
Are there any risks involved with an eVIVE treatment?
No, there are no safety risks involved. However, there is the slight possibility you may not respond to treatment.
How much does it cost?
Every patient is different. During your appointment, Dr. Jill will discuss with you your desired results and map out a treatment path and cost best suited for your individual needs.
