FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ROLE DOES PLATELET-RICH PLASMA PLAY IN THE TREATMENT OF ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION?
In these circumstances, the erectile tissue or shaft of the penis is given a PRP injection. The platelets then "degranulate," releasing various growth factors and cytokines. Growth factors promote the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis), the healing of damaged erectile tissue, and the recruitment of stem cells to the area to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. This results in the repair of damaged tissues and the growth of new healthy tissues, which greatly aids in the treatment of erectile dysfunction complications.
HOW MANY P-SHOT TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The number of treatments needed to achieve your desired results will be determined by the severity of your condition. Most men require three to six treatments to achieve the desired results, but some men may need more. These treatments are usually spaced a few weeks apart so that your progress can be tracked and tailored to your specific needs over the course of your treatment plan.
CAN I EXPECT PENIS GROWTH AFTER THE PRP SHOT?
Generally speaking, it takes one month to notice a visible difference in penis size. In most cases, the girth of the penis expands and becomes visible in comparison to the length. Without using the vacuum pump and taking nitric oxide supplements as prescribed by your doctor, length might not significantly increase. But it is important to note that PRP shots simply rejuvenate and regenerate aging erectile tissue, restoring it to a younger state. As a result, erections become stronger and better.
FOLLOWING THE P-SHOT, IS THERE ANY AFTERCARE?
To achieve the best results possible following the P-Shot procedure, you must stretch the penis tissues using a vacuum pump device. A penis pump is a pump attached to a cylinder that is designed to assist men with erectile dysfunction in achieving and maintaining an erection. To use it, place the transparent cylinder with an airtight seal at the base over your penis. The pump, which can be operated either electrically or manually, is then used to pump the air out of the cylinder, creating a partial vacuum around your penis. The vacuum forces blood into the penis, resulting in an increase in both penis length and size.
WHEN SHOULD YOU GET THIS TREATMENT?
If you are suffering from ED, it is worthwhile to come in for a consultation to discuss your options. We always recommend that you address this issue as soon as possible, regardless of your age, in order to get ahead of it. Younger bodies are also more responsive to treatment, so coming in sooner rather than later may be more effective.
The beauty of this treatment is that follow-up treatments are available and, like getting a haircut, can become a regular part of your lifestyle in the future.
