What does the P-Shot® procedure look like?
A small quantity of blood from the patient is necessary, which is drawn in the clinic during the procedure. Afterwards, the blood is treated in a special centrifuge, which separates the thrombocytes and the plasma from the rest. The thrombocytes are isolated and later injected back to the patient’s body, to be exact, in the zone where their positive impacts are needed. An anesthetic cream is used on the body, together with local anesthesia on the penis to ensure the comfort of the patient during P-Shot®.
The procedure lasts for about 60 minutes. P-Shot® does not impact the daily routine of the patients – driving and working with machines can continue right after the procedure. Patients can be sexually active in the same day, but not sooner than 4 hours after the procedure.
Is there something else, which I’ll have to do after the procedure?
Yes. To achieve an optimal effect from the procedure, it is necessary to use a VED (a vacuum device for achieving an erection, or a penis pump) twice a day. It takes only a few minutes, but not using it decreases the strength of the positive effects.
What are the possible side effects of P-Shot®?
PRP is created using the patient’s own blood. This means that the side effects are few and not serious. They include slight bleeding, irritation, or swelling.
