Acoustic Shockwave Therapy for ED in Oklahoma City
Regain Confidence and Vitality
At Renew Wellness & Aesthetics in Oklahoma City, we know the issues that erectile dysfunction (ED) can cause are not limited to the bedroom. Lack of confidence and sexual frustration can lead to negative impacts on every aspect of life.
From the workplace to relationships with family, friends, and significant others, unintended consequences can wreak havoc. Many men address this issue with medications, but this approach only addresses the symptoms of ED, not the true cause. If you’ve struggled with ED and haven’t seen success with medications like Viagra and Cialis, GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy for ED at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics may be for you.
As over 80% of ED issues are caused by poor blood flow, GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy works to stimulate the creation of new blood vessels in the penis. The creation of new blood vessels in the penis increases blood flow and creates the ability to achieve an erection.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) or GAINSWave® machines are high-energy shockwave machines that are able to penetrate hard structures like plaques around the penis. This simple, non-invasive, in-office procedure sends vibrational high-energy pulses to the tissue that increase circulation and promote healing to combat erectile dysfunction with a 75% success rate.

The GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy Process
What to Expect
Before your GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy treatment in Oklahoma City, Dr. Julie Shelley will conduct a detailed sexual health consultation. We will determine if shockwave therapy is the best course of treatment and answer all questions you have.
GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy Treatment
To administer GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy, we will first apply a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. Then we will use a small probe to transmit shockwaves into the tissue. Some patients report feeling a tingling sensation, but it is not painful. The entire treatment process takes about 30 minutes.
Some patients report improvements in symptoms after their first treatment session. For full results, most men require an average of 6 sessions spaced over 2 to 3 weeks.
There is little preparation required for GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy at Renew Wellness & Aesthetics after your initial consultation. Sessions are short and only require about 30 minutes. We suggest wearing comfortable clothing to your appointment.
You will be able to return to normal activity. The treatment is non-invasive and has no downtime.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy work?
Low-intensity shockwaves are applied to different areas of the penis. A topical numbing cream is applied to the penis prior to the treatment. Patients experience virtually no pain or discomfort. The shockwaves stimulate the creation of new blood vessels in the penis and improve blood flow within the penis. This creates the ability to achieve an erection.
What is GAINSWave® Therapy?
GAINSWave® is the premium brand of shockwave therapy that has the most widespread use.
What is the difference between ultrasound and shockwave therapy?
Ultrasound is a high-frequency but low-energy soundwave. When applied to tissue, the tissue absorbs the soundwaves, which causes the cells to vibrate. The vibrational energy stimulates cellular repair, which helps to expedite the healing process. The soundwaves, when absorbed into the tissues, are converted to heat energy. This helps to improve circulation.
Shockwave, on the other hand, sends higher-energy pulses when compared to the continuous lower-energy waves of therapeutic ultrasound. This makes shockwave superior to ultrasound for the treatment of ED. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) or GAINSWave machines are high-energy shockwave machines that are able to penetrate hard structures like plaques around the penis. The high-pressure waves also help promote healing. ESWT is not typically referred to as ultrasound although the technology does use sound waves.
Does GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy hurt?
GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy is non-invasive and pain-free. Some men report a tingling sensation during their therapy sessions but it is not painful.
Is there downtime required after GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy?
There is no required downtime after receiving GAINSWave® Shockwave Therapy. You will be able to return to normal activity immediately after a treatment session.
How long does it last?
Individual results will vary, however, some studies have reported positive effects for up to 1-2 years.
Can shockwave therapy be used to treat Peyronie's Diease?
Yes. Shockwave Therapy can also treat Peyronie’s Disease, which is the development of scar tissue in the penis leading to a curved, painful erection.
Are home devices effective at treating ED?
No. Medical devices with negligible capacities, such as those devices on the market for home use that mimic shockwave simply do not deliver adequate energy to address the root causes of ED. At Renew Wellness & Aesthetics, we use a STORZ shockwave machine, which is a “scheduled” FDA-approved device. Scheduled devices can only be overseen and purchased by a medical professional.
For this reason, scheduled devices are much more effective in the treatment of ED than any home device.
A certain amount of energy is necessary to cause a biological response in the tissue of the penis, specifically the corpus cavernosum. There is a minimum amount of energy that is needed to encourage new blood formation in the area create healthy tissue, and treat ED.
