GAINSWave Therapy - What to Expect

Of the GAINSWave practitioners nationwide, Dr. Kate Kass first brought this breakthrough therapy to the Seattle. She was one of the first two doctors in the United States to clinically incorporate GAINSWave treatment.

Dr. Kass has single-handedly conducted the largest number of GAINSWave procedures in Washington state and is the most seasoned GAINSwave provider across the West Coast. All GAINSWave treatments are overseen, and many performed, by Dr. Kass herself.

During the initial visit, Dr. Kass will conduct an in-depth discussion of your medical history, and lifestyle as well as any specific concerns you may have. A comprehensive blood panel is then ordered to assess potential factors — such as hormone levels, thyroid function, and heart health — that may affect erectile dysfunction. If she feels like you are an appropriate candidate for GAINSWave therapy, the first treatment often begins on this initial first.

Dr. Kass may also recommend platelet-rich plasma (called a “P-Shot”) in conjunction with GAINSwave therapy to deliver enhanced effects. Platelet-rich plasma is a natural source of curative growth factors, derived from your own blood. A blood sample is placed in a centrifuge, which concentrates powerful platelets and growth factors; this is then re-injected back into your body for accelerated healing and repair.

Upon the follow-up visit, Dr. Kass will review your lab work with you and analyze any other contributing factors that may impact erectile dysfunction.

The GAINSWave Procedure

GAINSWave therapy is a simple and quick in-clinic procedure. Over the course of 6 to 12 sessions, maximal results are obtained. Optimal blood flow to the penis is safely acquired — without the need for expensive prescriptions, painful surgery, sensitive injections, or cumbersome assistive devices.

GAINSWave treatments are completed in-office. The simple non-invasive procedure lasts roughly 20 to 30 minutes. Once the numbing cream takes effect, the painless process begins.

Unlike other forms of low-intensity shockwave therapy, GAINSWave therapy incorporates varying frequencies (in accordance with advanced medical research) to target specific areas for optimal sexual enhancement.

Once the procedure is complete, there is no recommended downtime. In fact, resuming sexual activity is recommended (as quickly as possible) after treatment to further encourage blood flow to the penile tissue.

How Long Does It Take for GAINSWave Treatments to Show Results?

For some men, GAINSWave treatment produces immediate results.

Within the first 24 hours post-treatment, morning and nocturnal erections are common. This occurrence is largely due to the release of nitric oxide in the bloodstream during treatment. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels, leading to immediate improvement in blood flow to the penis.

Forming new blood vessels, however, may take several months. Stronger, longer-lasting erections due to improved blood flow (hemodynamics) increase over time, according to recent clinical trials. The effects of GAINSWave treatment are clinically proven to last 1-3 years.

What Are The Leading Benefits?

The GAINSWave treatment effectively delivers:

  • Better initiation and maintenance of erections

  • Spontaneous erections

  • Heightened sensitivity of the penis

  • Improved orgasms

  • Increased confidence and greater spontaneity

  • Less stress around sexual performance


Additionally, many men report that they are able to adjust, or discontinue, their medications, finding that:

  • Cialis, Viagra or Levitra are once again effective (if they had become ineffective)

  • They can take a lower dose with better outcomes and fewer side effects

  • They no longer have a need for Cialis, Viagra or Levitra
