When you have shockwave therapy for Peyronie’s disease, the affected area of the penis is treated, and sonic gel is used to transmit single pulses of energy. This process helps produce new blood vessels in the site and breaks up plaque, which helps increase blood flow in the area.
When you have Peyronie’s disease, a type of scar tissue, known as plaque, forms inside the penis. As this plaque builds up, it starts pulling on nearby tissue, causing the penis to develop a curve. For most men, this bend is most visible during an erection and can cause intense pain, making sexual intercourse painful, difficult, or even impossible.
Men of all ages can develop Peyronie’s disease, but it’s most common as you grow older, especially once you reach your 50s and 60s. While 1 in 100 men have an official Peyronie’s disease diagnosis, researchers believe that actual numbers are much higher — closer to 1 in 10 men.
At the Men’s Health Clinic in Kingston, our team understands the impact Peyronie’s disease can have on sexual health and self-confidence.
First, having a curved erection doesn’t mean you have Peyronie’s disease, especially if it’s always had a bend. It’s completely normal to have a penis with a curved shape.
When you have Peyronie’s disease, the scar tissue in your penis can cause a variety of symptoms that appear gradually or quickly. Common signs of Peyronie’s disease include:
When you have shockwave therapy for Peyronie’s disease, we treat the affected area of the penis and use sonic gel to transmit single pulses of energy. This process helps produce new blood vessels in the site and breaks up plaque, which helps increase blood flow in the area.
Shockwave therapy usually takes between 25-30 minutes and doesn’t require any anaesthesia or numbing cream. At the most, you might feel a mild tingling or buzzing sensation throughout the entire treatment.
To help you reach the best results, we might recommend a series of 4 treatments spread out over several weeks.
