Living with the debilitating effects of erectile dysfunction (ED) can take a toll not only on your sex life but also your self-confidence and your relationships. Oral medication like Viagra is effective for some men but can be a nuisance to take and does nothing to actually solve the underlying issues. If you are tired of having to take medication during moments of intimacy or are interested in comprehensive treatment for your ED, then the Priapus Shot is the solution you need.
The Priapus Shot, or P-Shot, is a nonsurgical treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate tissues and blood flow in the penis. With just a single P-Shot treatment, you can expect a noticeable and satisfying improvement in the strength, frequency and longevity of your erections. At MenRegen, our team of men’s wellness experts are ready to help you get your groove back. With the P-Shot, we are excited to offer our patients an effective, safe and medically-proven treatment for their ED.
What Are the Benefits of the Priapus Shot?
As a regenerative treatment, the P-Shot targets the symptoms of ED from the inside out for long-lasting results. The P-Shot provides numerous benefits, including:
- Longer, harder, more sustainable erections
- Increased sexual stamina
- Reduces the time between erections
- Increases penis size and girth
- Heightens pleasure and sensation
- Improves circulation
- Enhances appearance
- Restores self-confidence
How Does the Priapus Shot Work?
The P-Shot takes advantage of the well-known healing properties of platelet-rich plasma. Originally designed for treating sports injuries, PRP therapy has recently grown in popularity due to its versatility and lack of side effects or downtime. PRP injections are frequently used to eliminate wrinkles, improve skin tone and even combat hair loss. Platelet-rich plasma is incredibly dense in nutrients and growth factors, allowing for powerful and completely natural treatment for a breadth of conditions. When injected into the body, the growth factors in PRP stimulate the production of new blood vessels while rejuvenating existing vessels for increased circulation.
A frequent cause of ED is poor circulation. By injecting PRP into the penis, we can directly target the cause of ED in our patients by taking advantage of the body’s innate ability to heal. The P-Shot counteracts the normal effects of aging by restoring healthy blood flow to the penis and giving patients the ability to achieve longer and stronger erections. PRP has also been shown to stimulate the growth of new stem cells in erectile tissues, which can potentially increase the length and girth of your penis.
Am I a Good Candidate for the Priapus Shot?
The P-Shot Shot is ideal for any man who is seeking an alternative to oral ED medication, such as Viagra, Cialis or Levitra. Many men have been disappointed with the results of ED medication or have experienced unacceptable side effects such as flushing or headaches. Others may suffer from diseases like diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure which prevent them from using ED medication.
Since PRP therapy is entirely autologous, meaning all materials used in the procedure are taken directly from your body, the P-Shot is free of adverse side effects or allergic reactions. Most men who suffer from ED make excellent candidates for a P-Shot treatment. Patients interested in the P-Shot should be non-smokers and have realistic expectations about their results. Other contraindications for PRP therapy include chronic liver disease, local infection, immunosuppression disorders, certain medication use, and recent fever or illness. Schedule a consultation with our team to learn if you are a good candidate for the P-Shot.
The Priapus Shot Procedure
Like any type of PRP therapy, the P-Shot procedure begins with a blood draw. The blood is then placed into a specialized centrifuge that separates the nutrients and growth factors from the blood cells, creating a concentrated PRP serum. After the PRP has been prepared, a numbing cream is applied to the penis to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your procedure.
Once you have been properly numbed, the PRP is injected into the head and shaft of the penis. Most patients receive about five injections that are spread throughout the penis to ensure the rejuvenating effects of the P-Shot are distributed evenly. The procedure takes about 20 minutes, after which you are free to return home and resume all normal activities.
What Are the Side Effects of the P-Shot?
The platelet-rich plasma used in the P-Shot is made from your own blood, so there are little to no known side-effects. Some patients have experienced redness, swelling or bruising around the injection sites, which are normal side effects of any type of injectable treatment. P-Shot appointments require no downtime and you may resume sexual activity four hours after your appointment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
The P-Shot produces gradual results as the stimulation of new blood vessels and stem cells get to work increasing circulation. You may notice an improvement in your erections right away, although most patients start seeing results after about three to four weeks. Your final results will take effect about 12 weeks after your appointment. Once your results have finished developing, you can expect to enjoy firmer, more frequent and longer-lasting erections. The benefits of the P-Shot can last up to one year.
How Often Should I Get a P-Shot Treatment?
How often you choose to come in for a treatment is ultimately up to you. Every patient responds differently to the P-Shot but most find that one appointment per year is sufficient. The procedure can be repeated safely every three months.
Is the Priapus Shot Safe?
The P-Shot procedure is very safe. Since it is entirely comprised of platelet-rich plasma derived from your own blood, you will not need to worry about your body rejecting the treatment or experiencing an allergic reaction.
How Much Does the Priapus Shot Cost?
The first P-Shot treatment costs $750 and additional treatments are $1,000.
Men interested in comprehensive sexual rejuvenation can combine their P-Shot with a noninvasive WaveRegen treatment for $995. We strongly recommend scheduling a combination procedure since the inflammatory response created by the shockwave treatment encourages the growth factors and recruited stem cells from the PRP to stay in the penis longer to help with the repair process. The shockwave treatment both enhances the effectiveness of the P-Shot and also provides its own independent benefits.
