Sexual wellness is an important part of your overall health, so if you’re dealing with negative symptoms, they will affect not only your confidence but also your quality of life. We offer non-invasive treatments that use natural processes to help the body heal and achieve a state of balance to improve sexual function and overall well-being.
At Meliora Integrative Medicine in Evanston, IL, we offer non-invasive treatments specifically tailored for men and women and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy plans that can help both achieve balance, regardless of their hormonal deficiency, symptoms, or life stage.
FemiWave is a non-invasive women’s sexual wellness treatment that uses low-intensity sound waves to treat the most common symptoms of sexual dysfunction in women. It can improve and restore sexual sensation, improve natural lubrication, and treat urinary incontinence. The results are long-lasting, the treatment is non-invasive, and you won’t have to plan around any downtime once it’s over. Specifically, the treatment can:
- Resolve vaginal dryness
- Increase arousal
- Tighten the vagina
- Improve sensitivity
- Improve orgasms
How It Works
FemiWave uses low-intensity sound waves, also known as shockwave therapy, to repair blood vessels within the vaginal area to increase blood flow. By increasing blood flow to the area, the treatment can stimulate the body to deliver growth factors directly into the tissue while also regenerating the area and growing new blood vessels. It can also improve the tightness and strength of the muscles in the area, which will help resolve urinary incontinence.
What To Expect
During the treatment, we will use the device to treat the outer and inner labia. You’ll receive a topical numbing cream before we perform the 15-minute treatment, and then you will be free to resume your normal daily activities. You won’t have to plan for any limitations and can even take part in sexual intercourse on the same day of treatment.
Women often experience immediate results, but your post-treatment results will depend on your age, current sexual health, and primary symptoms. Most patients need a series of treatments to achieve the best results. We can give you a better idea of your treatment plan at your initial consultation.
GAINSWave is a natural, non-invasive treatment designed to improve male sexual health by treating the cause of erectile dysfunction and poor sexual function at the source, improving blood flow to improve performance. As you age, the body stops producing new blood vessels, which can cause weaker or nonexistent erections.
Additionally, micro plaque builds within the vessels to restrict existing blood flow, which can also contribute to erectile dysfunction. GAINSWave is a non-invasive treatment that works by destroying the micro plaque buildup in the blood vessels while also stimulating the body to produce new blood vessels. The result is a decrease in the symptoms of erectile dysfunction and stronger erections.
How Does It Work?
The GAINSWave device uses low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy, which is essentially low-intensity sound waves to force the body to create new blood vessels in the penis while also breaking apart plaque in the already present blood vessels. Increasing blood flow in the area can treat erectile dysfunction and promote improved sexual health and performance.
What To Expect
Before the treatment, you’ll receive a topical numbing solution to ensure that you remain completely comfortable throughout the 20 to 30-minute treatment process. Once it’s over, you can resume your normal daily activities without any downtime.
Some patients notice an immediate improvement in the symptoms of sexual dysfunction and erectile dysfunction within 24 hours of the treatment process. At your initial consultation, we can give you more details about what you can expect from the process and determine your treatment eligibility.
Hormonal imbalances can also affect sexual wellness in negative ways since hormones are responsible not just for the reproductive system but for regulating sexual drive and function. If you’re suffering from an imbalance, that imbalance will negatively impact your sexual health.
A Natural Treatment Option for Men and Women
For women, some of the symptoms include vaginal dryness, low libido, and poor sexual performance. For men, testosterone deficiencies can lead to erectile dysfunction, low libido, and decreased sexual performance. We offer bioidentical, hormone replacement therapy treatment plans to improve not just physical, mental, and emotional health but also promote sexual health.
Whether your deficiency has resulted from aging or other factors, we can design a treatment plan using hormone pellets or topical products to restore balance to your system, resolve the symptoms affecting your sexual wellness, and improve your well-being.
Am I a Candidate?
If you’re suffering from any other forms of sexual dysfunction or feel as though your sexual health isn’t where it should be, you may be the perfect candidate for one of our sexual wellness treatment plans. An initial consultation will give us a better idea of your current health, issues, and symptoms and how we can treat them to improve your life.
Women may benefit from a combination of FemiWave treatments and BHRT treatment plans, while men may benefit from a combination of GAINSWave and BHRT plans suitable for their hormonal deficiencies and needs.
Invest in Your Sexual Wellness
Your sexual health is an important aspect of your overall health, so if you’re dealing with symptoms indicating that your hormones are imbalanced or there’s another issue preventing you from experiencing optimal sexual health, we can design a treatment plan with BHRT or other sexual wellness treatments as needed to naturally and safely resolve your symptoms and improve your sexual health, confidence, and relationships.
