A New Treatment Has Arrived! Introducing ESWT for Women’s Sexual Wellness
Posted by ALVR | May 23, 2022Back to All
While it’s not the most well known procedure in the world, there’s a chance that you’ve already heard of Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT). If you’ve ever had a kidney stone, it’s possible that a form of high intensity shockwave therapy called Lithotripsy was used to break up the stone so that you could pass it more easily. Or, maybe you’ve had a ligament injury in one of your joints – such as tennis elbow – and were treated with ESWT. If you’re reading this right now, odds are that you do not have a penis and were never treated with ESWT to help with erectile dysfunction… but hey, if you were, that’s totally cool!
The point is, ESWT has been around for a while and it has a proven track record when it comes to treating a variety of ailments. The reason for this is simple, and it lies in the technology behind the treatment: when high amplitude sound waves are focused on a small area of tissue, they create “micro-traumas” that cause the tissue to regenerate vascularity and nerve function. Once these micro-traumas heal, the functionality of the tissue is restored and often improved. You can think of this process as being analogous to how lifting heavy weights “tears” muscle tissue, which causes it to grow back stronger than before – in fact, you might even recall seeing an infomercial for a belt you wear on your abdomen that “shocks” your belly into six pack abs (we can assure you that our machine actually works, though).
As a treatment for erectile dysfunction, studies have repeatedly shown that ESWT is highly effective at rejuvenating penile tissue and increasing its sensitivity. This is why ALVR has chosen to offer ESWT as a sexual wellness treatment for women vs other soundwave devices like Cliovana; with alternative devices, a low intensity soundwave is applied to the skin and dispersed to a greater area of tissue, whereas with ESWT the soundwave is more localized and proven to illicit a greater response. When applied to clitoral tissue, ESWT causes an increase in blood flow and nerve sensitivity that leads to stronger and more frequent orgasms, leaving you more satisfied in the bedroom.
Another great perk of ESWT? In can be used in combination with other sexual wellness treatment options like SottoPelle Testosterone Replacement Therapy and/or the O-Shot. Each of these treatments can be effective on their own, but when used together as part of a holistic approach to sexual dysfunction patients often see better results more quickly.
