Many men would agree with the statement that the penis is the most important organ in their body. Although it is not crucial for day-to-day survival, the proper functioning of the penis is key to intimate relationships. Difficulties in achieving or maintaining an erection or concerns about penis size, shape or curvature, or pain can affect self-esteem or create problems between partners.
Fortunately, the human body is capable of healing itself by using stem cells through which tissues regenerate. PRP is based on concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins that saturate with growth factors to stimulate and speed up cell regeneration. PRP started in various medical fields such as wound healing and sports injuries, but is nowadays applied in aesthetic medicine as well as in cases related to sexual dysfunction.
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma, or platelet rich plasma. This is a category of regenerative autologous therapies – based on the patient’s own blood, which is used to stimulate cell regeneration and tissue repair. Platelets are well suited for this purpose because, when activated, they saturate surrounding tissues with growth factors and other beneficial proteins.
P-Shot® is a PRP penile therapy, a shortened form of Priapus Shot, named after the Greek god of fertility and the male sex organs, Priapus. Dr. Charles Runnels invented the procedure and tested it on himself.
The growth factors and proteins that result from the high concentration of platelets in PRP activate stem cells and stimulate cell regeneration in the area of the body where they are applied. The synthesis of collagen and new blood vessels is also stimulated and further facilitates recovery.
A small amount of blood is needed from the patient, which is drawn at the clinic during the procedure. Then, the blood is treated in a special centrifuge that separates the platelets and plasma from the residue. The platelets are isolated and later injected back into the patient’s body, and more specifically into the area where their positive properties are needed. An anaesthetic skin cream and a local anaesthetic on the penis take care of the patient’s comfort during the P-Shot®.
The duration of the procedure is approximately 60 minutes. P-Shot® does not disrupt the patients routine – driving and operating machinery can continue immediately after the procedure. Patients can be sexually active on the same day, but no sooner than four hours after the procedure.
Yeah. To achieve the optimal effect of the procedure, it is necessary to apply a VED (vacuum erection device or penis pump) twice a day. It only takes a few minutes, but its absence reduces the strength of the positive effects.
PRP is obtained from the patient’s own blood. This means that side effects are few in number and not severe. They include minor bleeding , bruising or swelling.
