At the Dermatology, Laser & Vein Center we specialize in several non-invasive procedures and treatments to address erectile dysfunction in men. Erectile dysfunction can occur from several factors including advancing age, diabetes, heart disease, atherosclerosis (plaque in vessels), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, metabolic syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, certain prescription medications, smoking, peyronie’s disease, alcoholism, substance abuse, sleep disorders, prostate treatment, surgeries or injuries that affect the pelvic area or spinal cord.
Erectile dysfunction can be a very distressing situation which can lead to a loss of self-confidence, affect relationships, and can also signify underlying medical and health problems as the ones listed above.
Erectile dysfuction symptoms include trouble getting an erection, maintaining an erection, and loss of sexual desire.
Emhance is a procedure performed using the Emsculpt/Emsella platform. Emhance uses high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to stimulate muscles and can be applied to the crotch area to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Emhance is a 30 minute treatment. During the procedure one will feel contractions as if one is doing kegel exercises. One single Emhance treatment emulates doing 11300 kegel exercises in the 30 minute session. Results can be felt almost immediately post treatment. Patients have reported stronger, longer lasting erections. Candidates would be anyone who would like to enhance their sexual performance. Patients can be of any age. We have seen both older and younger patients benefit from Emhance. We recommend 2 treatments per week for 3 weeks.
Another treatment we find effective for erectile dysfunction is the use of the Zwave technology in a procedure known as Exzel. Exzel uses Zwave photoacoustic therapy to directly treat the shaft. Photoacoustic therapy stimulates blood vessels and forces connective tissue to regenerate and strengthen. For best results, a combination of the two treatments may be recommended.
