Understanding Peyronie's Disease

If your penis used to be straight and now curves upward, downward, or is bent to the side, you probably have scar tissue that’s causing the aberration. Peyronie’s disease (PD) is a disease that affects the bend, shape, or length of your penis. About one in 10 men have some form of PD. 

The highly trained and caring physicians at Men's T Clinic® treat PD with state-of-the art Gainswave® therapy at their offices in Dallas, Frisco, The Colony, Houston, Cypress, Pearland, Pasadena, Grapevine, and Spring, Texas. Here they detail what PD is, how to treat it, and why early treatment has the best chance of success.

Peyronie’s disease is common

Not that this’ll make you feel any better about your own case of PD, but it’s a common condition, affecting more men than researchers once believed. Only about 1% of men in the United States over age 18 have been diagnosed with PD, but about 10% have symptoms of the condition, including a penis that:

Peyronie’s disease tends to develop in older men and may worsen over time The scar tissue that causes PD can create tight, narrow bands on your penis that makes it look like an hourglass shape instead of a cylinder. Severe cases of PD can make sex difficult or painful.

Peyronie’s disease is caused by trauma

Although variations in the way a man’s penis looks are normal, if the shape, length, or curve of yours has changed over the years, it may be a sign of PD. The initial cause of PD is trauma to the penis that results in scar tissue.

Most of the time, PD stabilizes within a year, so you won’t develop further bends, lumps, and deformities. If you have painful erections, these might also subside after a year or two, but why wait? The longer you delay breaking up the scar tissue, the less likely you’ll be successful in addressing your PD.

Gainswave normalizes penile tissue

Totally noninvasive, drug-free, and state-of-the art Gainswave therapy doesn’t rely on little blue pills to help you achieve erections. Instead, the shockwave therapy breaks up the scar tissue that’s causing your ED and PD, so that your penis functions normally again.

After a series of 6-12 treatments, the skin and soft tissues in your penis start to rebuild themselves and also build new blood vessels. Since you need healthy blood vessels to achieve and maintain an erection, Gainswave improves how easily and how long you can stay erect.

The sound waves in the Gainswave treatment also trigger the growth of new nerves that can enhance your sensation and pleasure. Gainswave also stimulates your body to produce more nitric oxide that keeps your blood vessels flexible and youthful. Gainswave results last up to three years.

You don’t have to wait

If you’re reading this blog out of curiosity, rather than need, you could still benefit from Gainswave. Since PD is more likely to occur as you age and your penile tissue breaks down, prophylactic Gainswave treatments help you keep your blood vessels and soft tissue healthy.

You can use Gainswave to treat mild cases of ED or PD, or even just to “biohack” your normal, healthy erections. Use Gainswave as a maintenance treatment, just as you might use microneedling on your still-smooth skin.
