P-Shot® – PRP Treatment
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, utilizes your body’s own naturally occurring growth factors to repair tissue. From a simple blood draw, we will separate these factors, and reintroduce then directly into the penis. Such combined growth factors will rejuvenate the penis cells, restore the energy, size, and girth of the penis for an enhanced sexual experience, decrease in erectile dysfunction, and a restored sense of confidence.
P-Shot: Discover the Next Level in Male Enhancement
Sexual activity and sexual health can be linked and affect a person’s overall quality of life. This study discussed the relationship between the frequency of sex and the risks of heart attacks or stroke. Men who have twice weekly intercourse had fewer events vs those who were sexually active one time per month or less. Sure, sex can be good (or great) exercise but the men probably felt better having sex because they not only felt good at the moment but is capable of performing is a vital piece of the puzzle.
Also, we understand that sexual activity substitutes as a form of exercise – which brings about its own benefits but the fact of having sex probably brings much more value. Throughout the years of treating patients from a range of ages, clinicians recognize that when couples are more sexually active, their overall relationship is more likely to benefit as they get older.
Therefore, men should recognize the importance that being more sexually active as there is ample evidence that shows a man’s sexual health can be interwoven tightly with his mental health. Interestingly enough, they note that most respondents who participate in weekly sexual activity show substantially improved health and moods. Ultimately, the use of therapies like the P-shot helps people regain faith and vigor.
The P-Shot Male Enhancement Option
Up until the recent developments in PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) treatments, male enhancing options were looking pretty bleak. Prescription ED medications like Cialis or Viagra can interact with other medications or alcohol. For most individuals, they work great but others, not so much.
There are much more extensive male enhancement surgeries like fillers and excision of the ligament suspending the penis. We are not sure these are good ideas but they are available. Ultimately, there are no guarantees of a successful outcome but they seem quite excessive and costly.
We get asked quite frequently about all these different ‘male enhancement’ herbs claiming to increase size, performance, and other ridiculous claims. Read the FAQs section to see how much consumers spend on junk like that. Optimal Men’s Center offers the P-Shot as the most effective and long-lasting solution for male enhancement.
The P-Shot. What it is and How Does it Work?
Optimal Men’s Center’s P-Shot treatment is a simple, but highly effective in-office procedure that can help address the symptoms of ED. Also, it can improve sexual performance and erectile strength, stiffness, and overall function.
As we mentioned in the previous section, The P-Shot Treatment uses Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP. PRP has also been a successful treatment modality in orthopedics, plastic surgery, and sports medicine. Now, there are promising scientific data that shows the potential ability of PRP in the regeneration of erectile tissue. At this time, the practice of this therapy is currently considered an experimental treatment modality for ED according to the 2018 Erectile Dysfunction guideline by the American Urological Association.
When the P-Shot is implemented, it can be an especially effective tool for reducing or removing the negative side effects of aging, diabetes, sexual inactivity, or even post-prostate cancer – all causes of ED. However, since we all are getting a little older, pretty much every man looking to boost his sex life can benefit from rejuvenating cells and improving vascularization.
The Process and Procedure
What are the Steps of the
Priapus Shot® or PRP?
Numbing lidocaine cream is applied to the penis
Blood is drawn from the arm (just like when you have a blood test done).
This blood is then placed into a centrifuge to spin
The spinning separates the platelets from the rest of the blood (now called PRP)
This platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is now extracted carefully from the tube
This liquid (PRP) is then transferred into a syringe and carefully injected into the penis using a tiny needle in a way that distributes the growth factors into the penis properly.
What are the advantages of the P-Shot®?
Increased strength of the penis
Nerve repair and blood vessel growth occurs
Increased sensitivity of the penis
If there is curvature, straightening of the penis can occur
Increased circulation within the penis for a healthier organ
Combined with TRT will optimize the patient’s overall experience
Additional ED therapies, such as Viagra and Cialis, or even a Vacuum device, work better
Paired with Gainswave ™ can have an astounding improvement in function
Increased pleasure (It can even help correct the damage from diabetes and radical prostatectomy)
Multiple studies have shown proven efficacy
No allergic reactions (due to using your own body’s plasma).
Minimal pain (no burning from the PRP since it comes from your own body)
Do P-Shot Treatments Produce Lasting Results?
Yes, but they do require maintenance. The cells inside the tissues have been modified for maximum benefit. Therefore, to preserve this result it will need upkeep. Ideally, we suggest ejaculating 3-5 times a week for the purposes of maintaining your results. Additionally, some patients use a penis pump to assist with prolonging the results of P-Shot therapy and keeping new lines of vascularization open.
Also, restoring optimal performance in the penis takes time. While many patients are noticing results within the first couple of days, it may take up to two weeks to see the effects. Furthermore, we recommend follow-up treatment after 90 days for the purposes of continually improving and regenerating the cells.
Platelet rich plasma injection is a simple and near painless procedure which uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) drawn from your own blood to treat erectile dysfunction. Platelets possess a variety of growth factors and substances with reparative and healing properties. As it has been used in other procedures successfully, the scientific data that indicates the potential ability and safety of PRP therapy in improving the health and functioning of erectile tissue. PRP therapy is a well-tolerated procedure that usually has no impact on your medications or health conditions.
Optimal Men’s Center is pleased to be able to administer this new treatment to West Valley Phoenix men who could potentially benefit from this treatment.
The process of PRP is accomplished by extracting these reparative cells from your own body. With a simple blood draw we then utilize the growth factors from your blood, concentrating and reintroducing them into the penis for a powerful response. These growth factor proteins play a role in healing the cells and restoring them to a more youthful, vigorous, and healthy state
Our P-Shot treatments enhance performance by awakening dormant cells, restoring the nerves sensitivity, stimulating blood vessel repair and regrowth as well as rejuvenating the tissue and muscles of the penis from shaft to the tip. With the newly revitalized changes, there is increased sensitivity, which is especially crucial for stimulation. As a result, arousal is enhanced, improving the man’s erection, thereby, resulting in increasing a man’s sexual performance. Additionally, our treatments are further improving our patients’ performance by not only stimulating repair but also the development of new blood vessels, known as neovascularization, which result in even more benefit.
Unfortunately, increasing vascularization in the penis does not really affect the size. The smooth muscle and elastic tissues do not truly grow or develop that much. What actually is occurring, is the penis can now get blood into the area and has the ability to fully engorge. The elastic tissues were there already, but they were somewhat shortened. Once they are repaired and recover, a very minimal increase in size may occur (not several inches that some claim). However, there are those that suffer with Peyronie’s disease, which is a curvature of the penis. This curvature is actually damage that was caused by scar tissue. Therefore, because those elastic tissues can be lengthened some, there may be an increase in size. Also, those with micropenis can see an enhancement.
FREQUENTLY ASKED ED TREATMENT QUESTIONS
CAN STOPPING OR REDUCING CERTAIN MEDICATIONS HELP ME WITH MY ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?
YES. THERE ARE MEDS THAT COULD RESULT IN AN INCREASED CHANCE OF CAUSING ED SYMPTOMS SUCH AS:
-Blood pressure medicines
GENETICS. IS IT A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?
Even though there is not enough evidence-based research to support the fact that ED is caused by genetics, there might be a connection. Since anxiety seems to have a partial genetic component, a relationship between how someone handles stress in conjunction with their genetics could play a role in ED. In practice, we do recognize a correlation with stress and erectile issues but thankfully, we are quite often able to assist these individuals with various forms of treatment.
CAN THE USE OF PROGESTERONE THERAPY HELP TREAT ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION? EVEN WHEN USED IN CONJUNCTION TO TESTOSTERONE REPLACEMENT?
Yep. Both hormones can be used together. They involve different mechanisms of action and have different benefits. Testosterone treatment is notorious for increasing sexual desire. It increases blood flow and frequency of erections. We have explained this already earlier and also here.
Next, we are going to dig in a little deeper of how Testosterone and Progesterone interact in the system and their importance for normal physiology (as well as for patient understanding).
We recognize that whether you are on TRT or not, some of the testosterone will convert to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a highly potent hormone in males and is responsible in part for a healthy libido, muscle growth and strength, facial hair, and more. When someone is on TRT, because they have more testosterone available, more DHT will be produced. That’s great, and this will help with muscle growth, libido, etc., but you can have excessive production from this conversion to DHT resulting in unnecessary side effects.
So, how does Progesterone come into the picture for better health. Lots of ways.
Progesterone increases an enzyme called 5-Alpha-Reductase. This enzyme will block the conversion of testosterone into DHT. Now, remember DHT is highly potent and vital for sexual health, muscle development, etc. And like anything, too much can cause problems. Some of the harmful effects of excessive DHT is accelerated scalp hair loss (but body hair/beard growth increases), enlarged prostate, impotence (ED), sleep apnea, thicker blood, high blood pressure, aggression, acne and more. Remember, we are talking about hormone balance, not an unwarranted level of one hormone from/over another. What is also important to consider is that progesterone levels impact men in a way that may increase their risk of ED if they are progesterone-deficient.
