High Intensity Laser for Erectile Dysfunction

Revolutionary and effective treatment.

The surprising results obtained by patients treated with High Intensity Laser show it to be one of the best alternative methods in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.

The laser can work both as a preventative treatment for people that have their first abnormal feeling, or for those simply looking to improve their sexual performance, whether due to psychological or organic reasons. It’s also highly recommended in cases where erection problems have been a long-standing issue that’s caused personal and relationship problems.

Advantages of the Treatment

There are many advantages of High Intensity Laser treatment, and we can summarise them in seven points:

  1. It’s Highly affective from the first session.
  2. Each session only lasts between 5 and 7 minutes. And around 5 to 10 sessions are required, depending on the case.
  3. No anaesthetic is required, nor is any pre-procedure preparation.
  4. The patient can carry out their daily activities and even have sexual relations on the same day of the session.
  5. There is no requirement, in most cases, for the patient to take medication, and it’s even less likely that prostaglandin injections will be needed.
  6. There is no record of any undesirable side effects.
  7. It can be used in conjunction with other treatments like Shockwave therapy to produce further beneficial results.

What is HIL?

HIL, or High Intensity Laser, uses the principles of bio stimulation, which is the stimulation of tissue to enable its regeneration via a light beam that penetrates the skin, subcutaneous tissue and intimate structures of the penis, such as the corpora cavernosa. It promotes cell regeneration and increases oxygen intake, producing more Nitric Oxide to achieve stronger erections from the first session.

The thermal effect also promotes vasodilation and creates new blood vessels, which increase the strength, quality and durability of erections.

How High Intensity Laser works

High Intensity Laser is a device which produces a coherent light beam of one (or more) specific wavelength. The light beam transmits energy which spreads via tissue and can be used in order to treat infected, injured or damaged tissue in such a way that it speeds up recovery time and reduces pain.

High Intensity Laser uses a non-invasive procedure to penetrate the skin and spreads through the subcutaneous tissue, fat, muscle, tendons and bones, depending on the area which is being treated.

The process by which the damaged tissue is repaired using the Laser is called Photo bio estimulation.

When applying a laser beam, there are 4 different effects it can have on skin tissue: reflexion (light does not penetrate tissue), scattering (light is randomly distributed throughout the tissue) absorption (light is absorbed by the tissue’s molecules), and transmission (light is transmitted deeper into the tissue’s structures, and eventually absorbed)

There are three main effects that High Intensity Laser Therapy produces: Photo acoustic, bio stimulation and thermic.

Human tissue is comprised of various elements. The most significant of these for the purposes of irradiation via laser are: water, haemoglobin, melanin.

Its absorption, as well as scattering coefficient, vary for different wavelengths. The optimum scattering to absorption ratio of 1064nm makes it ideal for deep tissue penetration

A 1064nm High Intensity Laser beam can penetrate up to 10cm deep into the tissue.

One of the main results induced by the 1064nm High Intensity Laser beam is the photo acoustic effect. Photo acoustic waves are created when the area is irradiated by using very short pulses with a high rate of repetition.

These mechanical waves stimulate free nerve endings in the tissue, bringing almost immediate pain relief to the area.

Bio stimulation: another main effect of High Intensity Laser, involves stimulating the organism at cell level with the 1064nm laser beam in order to improve healing and recovery. Oxygen is processed in cells by mitochondria. Here oxygen is processed by a cascade of respiratory enzymes and delivered by ATP synthase, which synthesizes the organism’s source of energy – ATP. The quicker exchange of oxygen and metabolites, thanks to laser irradiation allows more oxygen atoms to reach mitochondria. Mitochondria are stimulated even further by laser irradiation at 1064nm to synthesize ATP quicker.

ATP enables a faster synthesis of RNA and DNA which aids quicker recovery, healing and edema reduction in the treated area.

(The thermic effect of) High Intensity Laser therapy is caused by superficial structures absorbing a 1064nm light beam, which consequently increases the tissue’s temperature.

The thermic effect also causes vasodilation. This leads to an increase in blood perfusion. Greater amounts of oxygen are delivered to the tissue and more metabolites are reabsorbed.
