Water Vapor Therapy (Rezum) For BPH

Water Vapor Therapy (Rezum) uses the natural energy stored in water vapor, or steam, available to relieve symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

During each 9 second treatment, sterile water vapor is released throughout the targeted prostate tissue. When the steam turns back into water, all the stored energy is released, causing the cells to die.

Over time, your body’s natural healing response removes the dead cells, shrinking the prostate. With the extra tissue removed, the urethra opens, reducing BPH symptoms.
