Peyronie’s disease affects 1 in 11 men, causing painful erections and negatively impacting the sexual wellness of those afflicted.
At MedSpa at ChristiMD, we believe sexual wellness requires a positive state in a person’s physical and mental being. The first step is a frank and open discussion, and the next is effective treatment.
Read on to learn about a non-invasive treatment for Peyronie’s Disease at MedSpa at ChristiMD that can help reduce or eliminate the symptoms and root cause.
What is Peyronie’s disease?
Sometimes referred to as “bent penis,” Peyronie’s disease results from a build-up of fibrous penile plaque on one side of the penis. This disorder of the connective tissue in the penis causes an area of scar tissue to grow on the outer covering (“tubica albuginea”) of the penis’s erectivle bodies (corpora cavernosa).
When the erectile bodies fill with blood, the penis becomes erect. However, with Peyronie’s disease, the covering tissue where the plaque has grown doesn’t stretch like it should. This causes the erection to curve/bend around that area. This bend can cause anything from mild discomfort to extreme pain during the erection.
What causes Peyronie’s disease?
Repeated injuries to the penis cause the penile plaque to form as scar tissue. That injury can be incurred in any number of ways, but most typically happens as a result of physical activity/sports and/or sexual activity.
GAINSWave™️ as a treatment for Peyronie’s disease
In Houston, men can come to MedSpa at ChristiMD for GAINSWave soundwave therapy to treat their Peyronie’s disease. GAINSWave applies ultrasonic sound waves to the affected area, helping to loosen/break-up the plaque tissue, and allow the body to naturally regenerate healthy tissue.
Men can achieve better blood flow and a renewed elasticity to that part of the tubica albuginea, relieving the pain during arousal.

The treatment usually takes about 20 minutes. ChristiMD recommends 6 to 12 treatments to achieve best results.
Other benefits of GAINSWave
Not only does the treatment improve the effects of Peyronie’s disease, it can result in:
- Stronger, harder and more sustainable erections
- Improved sexual performance

It all starts with a conversation
One of the toughest parts for men is to talk about sexual dysfuntion issues. Peyronie’s disease can cause:
- A lack of desire for sex
- Lowered libido
- Decreased confidence
Openly talking about the issue with your wellness provider is the first step toward treatment for Peyronie’s disease in Houston.
If the condition is severe, you may be recommended to seek surgical advice. However, men suffering with Peyronie’s disease won’t know the options they have at hand until they discuss the situation with their provider.
