ORAL MEDICATION
DROPOUT RATE

Did you know that traditional treatments for ED suffer a relatively high dropout rate?1

Studies have shown roughly 33% of men don’t receive the intended physical response when taking drug-based medication for ED?1

Additionally, 47% of men who took drug-based medication experienced adverse effects, such as facial flushing, visual disturbance, palpitation, etc.2

PILLS vs ESWT

EFFECTS OF ORAL MEDICATION

With age a variety of factors cause degeneration of blood vessels. This can cause blood vessels to become blocked or obstructed, reducing blood flow. PDE5i or oral medication for erectile dysfunction traditionally dilates or widens the blood vessels to improve blood flow. This acts to temporarily increase the amount of blood that flows through the penis.

EFFECTS OF ESWT

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy directly stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in the penis (angiogenesis). The new healthy blood vessels work together with older blood vessels to provide more channels for blood flow to take place, thus enhancing the amount of blood supplied to the penis during erections.
