FAQFREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The Treatment METHOD
What is AWT?
What is Acoustic Wave Therapy?
Acoustic Wave Therapy is an AWT approach that uses a Swiss-made medical device cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use on the human body as a massage device for soft tissue repair and improved blood flow, among other uses. Use of this equipment according to our established best practice protocol for ED treatment, and perfectly calibrated equipment forms the SwissWave Protocol.
This approach is proven across age groups to show long lasting results that enable:
- Improved Sexual Performance
- Enhanced Erections
- Increased Penile Sensation
Who are good candidates for Acoustic Wave Therapy?
Men of all ages with erectile dysfunction – Acoustic Wave Therapy is a safe, effective, drug-free, surgery-free alternative to Viagra, Cialis, and other oral ED medications.
Men of all ages with Peyronie’s Disease – Acoustic Wave Therapy has been shown to be a drug-free, surgery-free way to break down the scar tissue and reduce the curvature of the penis typical of Peyronie’s Disease.
Healthy Men of all ages seeking drug-free male enhancement – Men do not have to be suffering from ED or any other medical condition to benefit from Acoustic Wave Therapy. Healthy males who have had AWT-based treatments report harder, more sustained erections after one treatment.
For which age groups is Acoustic Wave Therapy effective?
We believe that this could actually roll back the clock for most men, allowing men of ages up to 80, even 90 to perform as they did in their more virile years. The treatment is not contra-indicated for any age group, and can thus provide benefits to men of all ages. Schedule an appointment with our doctors to learn if this treatment can help your specific situation.
Why is Acoustic Wave Therapy a better alternative to ED drugs?
Viagra, Cialis and Levitra only help half of all men dealing with erectile dysfunction due to contra-indications of the drugs. For those that are candidates for oral medications, the drugs can have very unpleasant and potentially dangerous side effects.
With the SwissWave Protocol there are no expensive prescriptions, or pills to remember to take. There are no harmful side effects with the SwissWave Protocol as there are with oral ED drugs. The SwissWave Protocol is not contra-indicated, and can be used for men who cannot take oral ED medications. Also, SwissWave Protocol can be used to treat Peyronie’s Disease, which Viagra and other oral ED drugs cannot.
Why is Acoustic Wave Therapy better than other AWT treatment options?
We are the exclusive providers in San Diego with the specific Swiss-made equipment and training to calibrate and administer the treatments. While there are other providers who source and use Chinese-made and other devices, precision is key for this treatment option. To have the desired effect on erectile tissue the acoustic wave must be focused to one millimeter. If the wave is not perfectly calibrated the treatment won’t be effective or long-lasting.
How does Acoustic Wave Therapy work?
The treatment approach uses high-frequency, pulsating, acoustical sound waves to eliminate micro-plaque in existing blood vessels and stimulate the growth of new vessels and erectile tissue (Corpus Cavernosum) in and around the penis. This treatment addresses the underlying cause of erectile dysfunction – poor blood flow – and results in increase sensitivity, stronger erections, and more natural, spontaneous erections.
