The vast majority of men experience changes to their sexual function at some point in their lives. As you grow older, you may notice a decreased ability to create and maintain an erection, a change in the size of your penis, or decreased sexual pleasure and sensation. The P-Shot can help by using components of your own blood to restore all of these functions. At Radiant Divine Medical Spa in Avon, OH, we can administer this safe and quick treatment.
The P-Shot Explained
The Priapus shot, which is named after the Greek God of fertility, is an innovative way of addressing common issues related to men’s sexual health. It involves taking platelets, proteins that help with healing and the formation of new cells, from your own blood and injecting them into your penis, where they will work to restore the health of your erectile tissue.
The treatment does not involve an invasive procedure or taking any drugs, so it is a natural solution. In the majority of cases, it contributes to the increased size and restored function of the penis, thereby leading to a more fulfilling sex life for both you and your partner. Another major advantage is that the platelets will start to work almost immediately, so you don’t have to wait for months to see results.
Erectile dysfunction is often defined as the inability to maintain an erection for long enough to have sexual intercourse. As we age, it becomes more and more prevalent, affecting up to 70% of men aged 70 and up. But this doesn’t mean that younger people don’t suffer from the condition. There are both psychological and physical reasons why a man is no longer able to establish or maintain his erection.
Another common symptom of ED is reduced sexual desire due to the lack of testosterone in your body. All of these issues can significantly affect the quality of your sex life and, as a result, your relationship. That’s why it’s essential not to ignore the issue, but to address it early and find a solution, both for yourself and your partner.
Causes of ED
ED is often associated with age, diabetes, and heart disease. But there are several physical and psychological factors that can contribute to it, and many of them are not related to the age of the patient. Most commonly, the nerve or blood supply to your penis is reduced, which can happen due to an accident or injury to the hip area or a medical condition that affects the circulatory system. Diseases like multiple sclerosis or certain drugs can also be the cause.
The third reason for ED is hormonal changes, particularly a drop in the male sex hormone, testosterone. The easiest way to find out why you are experiencing issues is to book your initial appointment with us. We can help you to determine why you are experiencing symptoms and come up with a plan to reduce or eliminate them.
Preventing and Reversing ED
Over the course of your life, there is a high chance that you will struggle with ED. Even in young men under 40, the prevalence is 26%, and half of these cases are considered severe. It’s crucial that you address sexual health problems early because although they are not life-threatening, they can lead to severe complications in your life.
You may develop problems in your relationship and are unlikely to be able to have children if you cannot have regular sexual intercourse. In addition, most men suffer from a lack of confidence and mental health issues as a result of ED. Particularly if you are a younger man, you may experience stress as a result of your reduced sexual function. With the Priapus shot, you will be able to reverse the issue and prevent it from occurring in the future.
Platelets and PRP Technology
Before we discuss how the Priapus shot will be administered, let’s dive into the technology used in this innovative treatment. Platelet-rich plasma (or PRP) technology works by extracting certain healing substances from your blood and delivering them to the site where they are most needed. Your blood will be spun in a centrifuge and the plasma and platelets are extracted.
When injected into the erectile tissue, they will act as they would at the site of an injury, encouraging your body to discard the damaged cells and create new, healthy ones. While your body won’t be injured, the result, namely new and improved tissue, will be the same as when a wound heals. With this technology, your tissue becomes healthier, allowing for stronger and more durable erections as well as an increase in penis size.
Getting Your Priapus Shot
Because the treatment is quick and safe, there’s no need for an overnight stay in the hospital or even to take any time off work. In most cases, you can be in and out of your clinic in under an hour and resume your regular activities straight away. However, we will ask you to come for an initial consultation to discuss your struggles with ED and to come up with a plan of action. That way, we can determine whether the P-shot is the best solution for you.
Before the Treatment
At your initial consultation, you will speak to your provider about the issues you’ve been experiencing and the reasons for your visit. We will review your medical history to make sure that you are a good candidate and then book your appointment for getting the shot. In general, there’s no preparation needed before your treatment, but we may advise you on leading a healthy lifestyle, which can ensure that your results stay in place long-term.
When you arrive at the clinic, your blood will be drawn, so that the PRP substance can be created. At the same time, we will apply a numbing cream to your penis in order to make the process pain-free for you. As soon as this has taken effect, the shots can be administered.
You can leave the clinic and resume all of your normal activities when this process is over, as there is no downtime involved. Many providers recommend avoiding sexual contact for at least 24 hours afterward to ensure that the area can heal properly.
Supporting Your Treatment
A number of men experience the benefit of the Priapus shot immediately, but the full results will become apparent within 2-3 months of your treatment. You are likely to benefit from harder erections, increased stamina and sensitivity, and a longer and thicker penis. Even men who have not yet suffered from ED and opt for this treatment as a preventative measure report being very pleased with their results.
In order to support your shot and make sure that the effects are long-lasting, you should aim to lead a healthy lifestyle. Avoid smoking, which narrows your blood vessels and reduces blood flow to the penile area, make sure to follow doctors’ orders if you have any medical conditions like diabetes, and reduce or eliminate the amount of alcohol and drugs you consume. Exercising can also be a very effective method of keeping your circulatory system healthy.
Who Can Benefit?
With so many advantages and little downtime required, the Priapus shot is the ideal treatment for many men suffering from ED or hoping to prevent this condition. Although the majority of patients are eligible, there are some things to consider before making a final decision.
In general, age does not affect your eligibility, as long as you are an adult. Most of our patients come to us after their sexual peak, which generally occurs in their 20s. However, there is no one right age to get your Priapus shot, and you may be able to benefit from it at a younger age if you feel that your sexual health is suboptimal. Many men also opt for this treatment as a preventative measure.
Most health conditions won’t interfere with PRP treatment, but there are a few exceptions, particularly when it comes to blood disease. Because the substance injected comes from your own body, it’s important that your blood is healthy enough to produce the required amount of beneficial platelets. You may also need to discontinue taking certain medications that could interfere with the treatment.
Struggles with Sexual Function
The main criterion is the extent of sexual health issues you have. If you struggle to create or maintain an erection and your private life, confidence, or mental health are affected, then you are likely to be a good candidate for the P-shot. However, you may also be eligible if you do not have ED, but are simply looking to enhance your sexual function further. Sometimes, preventative care is more effective in avoiding this common condition altogether.
Some men suffer from Peyronie’s Disease, which results in a curved and often painful erection. While mild cases of this may not be a concern, some men experience significant issues as a result. By decreasing the inflammation, increasing the blood flow, and remodeling the scar tissue that causes the disease, the Priapus shot can effectively reverse the damage and help you to achieve a straight and pain-free erection.
The Priapus shot can work wonders for your sexual health, but it’s important to keep your expectations realistic. We distinguish between early responders, normal responders, and late responders. While the first group experiences immediate benefits from the treatment, the last is likely to see changes only a few months later. There’s no way of knowing which group you’ll fall into beforehand, so it’s best to keep an open mind and expect a gradual change.
It’s also advisable to combine your Priapus shot with additional measures to optimize your sexual function. Try to avoid substances that can reduce your blood flow or otherwise harm your ability to have an erection, especially nicotine, alcohol, and illicit drugs. Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly can be one of the best ways to boost your cardiovascular system and reduce stress at the same time.
Enhance Your Sexual Function Now
The P-shot is a great way to rejuvenate and enhance your erectile tissue, leading to a more satisfying sex life for both you and your partner. It makes use of the innovative PRP technology, which involves injecting your own platelets into your penis to stimulate the production of new, healthy cells. As a result, most men experience stronger erections and a larger penis.
