Alma DuoFAQs


What is Alma Duo™?


Alma Duo™ is an in-office treatment that uses focused low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LI-ESWT). When used around the pelvic area, this device has been clinically proven to stimulate better blood flow and restore natural sexual performance.


LI-ESWT was first introduced in the 1970s to treat kidney stones and gallstones. Since then, it has evolved to treat conditions that restrict blood flow, particularly those that cause ED and female sexual dysfunction. The best part of this treatment is that it’s non-invasive, completely pain-free and doesn’t require any downtime!


Treatments usually take about 15 minutes and involve the use of a probe. The probe is placed against the skin on the pelvis and sends low-intensity shockwaves. There should be no pain at all during the procedure. In fact, most people feel either nothing or slight tingling.


What is Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy (LI-ESWT)? Is shockwave treatment for ED and female sexual dysfunction effective?


LI-ESWT is an FDA-cleared procedure that painlessly and non-invasively sends low-intensity, high-frequency pulse waves to various points along the penis in men and the clitoris in women. LI-SWT is also called Pulse Wave Therapy, Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, ESWT, Acoustic Therapy or Sound Wave Therapy.


These sound waves spark a whole host of regenerative functions. Specifically, they work to:

  • Break up plaque in the blood vessels to encourage blood flow in the penis and clitoris
  • Spark a mini-inflammatory process that releases nitric oxide — the same vasodilator in the body that’s enhanced following the use of ED medications
  • Stimulate stem cell production and growth factor formation, which encourages blood vessel growth and tissue regeneration.


As a result of these processes, erectile dysfunction in men and women is treated at the source — leading to better sexual functioning, sensitivity and performance.


Is shockwave therapy for ED a Viagra alternative?


Both Shockwave Therapy and ED drugs, such as Viagra and Cialis, work to treat the underlying cause of many cases of erectile dysfunction — poor blood flow to the penis or clitoris. By increasing blood flow to the penis, men are able to achieve larger, firmer and more frequent erections and recover the ability to perform sexual intercourse; women have increased clitoral blood flow and sensation, and are able to achieve orgasm more easily.  However, ED drugs offer a temporary fix, which requires planning sexual intimacy ahead of time. Additionally, ED medications can come with side effects, such as migraines and dizziness. On the other hand, LI-ESWT aims to correct the actual mechanism at its source — creating a network of healthier blood vessels and stimulating tissue growth of the penis and clitoris, which leads to natural, spontaneous and long-lasting erections in men and improved sensation in women.


What are other medical applications of shockwave therapy?


LI-ESWT has had wide medical application for decades. Shockwave treatment has become a standard protocol to break up kidney stones and fat (lithotripsy), restore arterial and vascular tissue, as well as provide pain relief for conditions, such as arthritis, tendonitis and bursitis. About 15 years ago, researchers in Europe discovered that they could use shockwave treatment for erectile dysfunction to increase blood vessel formation, encourage blood circulation and growth factor development, as well as promote tissue regeneration in the penis.


What happens during the Alma Duo™ procedure?


An Alma Duo™ Shock Wave Therapy treatment is a simple, non-invasive procedure that is entirely pain-free. It usually takes about 15 minutes per session. A probe that is attached to the low intensity shock wave therapy machine is placed on the penis in 3 locations and on both sides of the groin in men, and on the clitoris and on both sides of the groin in women. This machine sends pulse soundwaves which sparks the body’s regenerative processes.


Alma Duo™ Shockwave Therapy Results: What can I expect before and after therapy?


Better sensation and function usually occur immediately following Shock Wave Therapy. Over the course of the next eight to 12 weeks, a process called neovascularization happens, which creates a stronger, healthier network of blood vessels and increased blood flow to the penis and clitoris. The result is a stronger, harder erection, better arousal and sensation, more attainable orgasms, as well as an improved ability to perform sexually. Additionally, growth factor formation and stem cell growth encourage tissue generation for a noticeable change in the size of the penis. 


Alma Duo™ Shockwave Therapy Downtime: Are there pain or side effects?


Shockwave Therapy with the Alma Duo™ is pain-free.   With the exception of strenuous exercise for 48 hours, patients can return to normal activity following treatment, including sex.


What’s the success rate of Alma Duo™?


Perhaps the biggest question on your mind is whether Alma Duo™ is successful or not. According to studies, about 76% of people have shown an improvement in erectile function after this treatment. 


Those with a severe case of ED who had to try treatment along with medication showed a 70% success rate in getting and maintaining an erection during intercourse. Those are impressive figures for a pain-free treatment that doesn’t require any surgical or hormonal intervention!


Alma Duo™ sounds great!  Will it be enough to fix all my sexual problems?


There are many factors that contribute to sexual dysfunction, such as plaque buildup in penile or clitoral blood vessels, unbalanced or low hormones, depression/anxiety, diseases affecting the genitals such as Peyronie’s Disease and lichen sclerosus, tobacco use and more.  Alma Duo™ is very effective as a standalone procedure, but can be administered in conjunction with PRP Injections (O-Shot, P-Shot and Vampire WingLift), bio-identical hormones (BHRT), medications, tobacco cessation and healthy weight management to optimize results.


How often will I need to have the Alma Duo™ Shockwave Therapy?


A course of Alma Duo™ LI-ESWT consists of a total of 6 visits—twice a week for three weeks.  Additional treatments may be indicated on a semiannual or annual basis depending on your age and results.  


How does the Alma Duo™ compare to the GAINSWave for Shockwave Therapy?


Both the Alma Duo™ and the GAINSWave device use shockwave therapy to improve erectile dysfunction.   The Alma Duo™ is completely pain-free and therefore does not require application of numbing cream, which cuts down on the procedure time significantly – 15 minutes vs 60 minutes including the time for the numbing cream to work.  The sound waves of the Alma Duo™ also penetrate 9 times as deep as the GAINSWave, making for a much more profound and effective treatment.


How much does the Alma Duo Shockwave therapy cost?


The Alma Duo™ costs $500 per treatment. A course of therapy consists of two treatments a week for three weeks, for a total of six treatments. This makes a course of therapy $3000, purchased as a package.  


Combining the Alma Duo™ Shockwave therapy with PRP Injections (O-Shot or P-Shot) and bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT) will provide ultimate results and the best value!  Please schedule a consultation with Glendale Whole Health in order to create a treatment plan and package that’s right for you.
