I hope that everyone is starting the new year in good health and that you’re all setting positive goals for the year to come! This is the time of year when we are all thinking of ways to improve our health, our body, and our sex life. Enhanced sexual function is something that many people try to achieve through medication; but, there is another way to improve your sex life that doesn’t involve taking pills every day.
The procedure I’m talking about is called the P-Shot. Like every PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment, we use your own blood to enhance blood flow to the penis and create a significant improvement in your sexual function. The process involves using a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood, treating it with calcium, and injecting it into the penis in 5 different locations.
I know what you’re thinking, “that sounds painful!”; but, in fact, the process itself is painless and you will start seeing the results in just a few weeks. Even better than that, the results last between 12 and 18 months. You also don’t have to be concerned about side effects from PRP injections because it is just a refined form of your own blood. There are other procedures that inject silicone. Unfortunately, the cost of those procedures is high and they don’t improve erectile function.
Now, you’re probably asking yourself whether or not this is the procedure for you. No matter your age, the procedure can significantly improve your sexual function. Especially, if you’re struggling with erectile dysfunction or impotence caused by diabetes or certain medications; like anti-depressants and other psychotropic drugs, and blood pressure medications. It is also an effective treatment for Peyronie’s disease, which is a curvature of the penis caused by scar tissue that affects 3-4% of men.
If you’re wondering how safe this treatment is, consider that PRP has been used in several different medical fields, such as cosmetic surgery, dentistry, sports medicine and pain management for almost 30 years. The medical applications for PRP treatments continue to grow year after year. In the next article, we’ll discuss how PRP can be used for aesthetic purposes, such as minimizing acne scarring and increasing facial collagen formation.
