How does the p shot work?

Do you suffer from erectile dysfunction? Erectile dysfunction or ED is characterized by the inability to achieve or maintain an erection and is usually caused by inadequate blood flow to the penis. If sexual performance is a concern for you, the P-Shot may be the answer. But what exactly is the P-shot and how does it work.

What is the P-Shot?

Priapus Shot (P-Shot) is a non-surgical treatment in which platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) derived from the blood, is used to rejuvenate the penis. PRP is rich in growth factors and has been used in orthopedic medicine for many years to assist with healing damaged cells and regenerate tissue. When injected into the penis, PRP is able to rejuvenate the penis in a similar manner.

How does the P-Shot work

At the start of the P-Shot treatment, the doctor will draw a small amount of blood from the patient’s arm. The blood is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets from the rest of the blood. Numbing cream is then applied to the penis, and the PRP is injected. The growth factors present in the PRP help to regenerate the existing blood vessels and promote the production of new ones. The increased blood flow to the penis improves erectile function.

Benefits of the P-Shot

The P-Shot increases the firmness and sustainability of erections. Patients also experience increased sensitivity and improved sexual satisfaction after the P-Shot.

Is there any downtime after the P-Shot

There may be some redness or swelling at the injection site after the procedure, but there is usually little to no downtime.
