Men’s sexual health has taken a giant leap forward with an incredible new treatment. Anazao MD Med Spa of Steamboat Springs, Colorado is proud to introduce you to the P Shot. Demand for and interest in this revolutionary treatment are off the charts. We are sure that once you understand just how beneficial it can be, you’ll want to experience all the benefits for yourself.
What Is the P Shot?
The P Shot is an FDA-approved treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED). There is almost no limit to who can receive the treatment, and it works for people of all ages.
This matters because erectile dysfunction is not a problem limited to the elderly. Naturally, ED is more prevalent in older men, but it is still relatively common in younger adults as well. Generally, ED prevalence scales with age, such that 30% of men in their 30s will experience it, 40% of those in their 40s, and so on.
What’s in a Name?
Although the “P” in the name is commonly assumed to refer to the penis itself, the name actually comes from ancient Greek. The doctors who first developed the treatment named it after Priapus, the Greek god of agriculture and fertility. The fertility of the soil was connected in popular understanding to fertility of the womb. The P Shot or Priapus Shot is named after this Greek god and offers men a chance to regain their youthful vigor in the bedroom.
What Does the Shot Contain?
If you were expecting some novel combination of chemicals or a strange blend of herbs, guess again. The Priapus Shot is derived entirely from your body using its own fluids. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected directly into your body to rejuvenate it.
If this is the first time you have heard of PRP, prepare to be amazed. Although it has been around for several decades, PRP is just beginning to become commonplace for cosmetic and restorative reasons. It won’t be long until its name is common knowledge.
What Is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma is what PRP stands for. Parsing that text gives you a fairly clear idea of what PRP consists of. There are two main ingredients, both found in your bloodstream: Platelets and Plasma.
Plasma is the primary liquid in your blood. It carries all the other cells through the bloodstream. Among those cells are platelets. These small cells play a big role in your body, specifically when it comes to healing. The “rich” part refers to the high concentration of platelets in the injection. When lots of platelets accumulate in a specific part of the body, special healing processes begin. PRP, in a sense, hacks your body and allows us to rejuvenate it in ways never seen before.
How Do You Make PRP?
One of the best things about PRP is that it is incredibly easy to produce. There are no complex laboratory procedures or donors to worry about. All that is needed is fresh blood from you, the autologous donor. During the process, your arm is connected to a centrifuge. This machine draws blood from your arm and then spins the blood, separating its components according to density. From there, the machine siphons off the platelets and some plasma.
After a single cycle, the red and white blood cells, along with the excess plasma, are returned to your body. This prevents you from feeling tired or dizzy as you might after a normal blood donation. In addition, smaller people who may not be able to donate blood can still use their own blood to produce PRP. The cycle repeats until there is enough PRP to administer to the problem area. The fresh PRP is loaded into a syringe and is ready to be injected. The entire process takes no more than 15 to 20 minutes and is virtually painless.
What Does PRP Do to the Body?
PRP takes advantage of platelets’ secondary properties. Normally, platelets’ main task is to promote blood clotting and wound repair. If you cut your finger, platelets will rush in and release an enzyme that causes your blood to clot. This is vital to prevent continuous bleeding. However, once the bleeding has stopped, the platelets have another function.
Platelets release Platelet-derived Growth Factor (PDGF) when there are many of them in a small area. This growth factor encourages cell growth and replication while also signaling white blood cells to come in and clean up the area. Thus, old and damaged cells are removed while brand new ones take their place.
By concentrating platelets and injecting them, we fool the body into thinking a major event has happened at the site of injection. We trigger the healing mechanisms without creating any damage. This results in a restoration of the cells in the area.
PRP and Erectile Dysfunction
Injecting PRP directly into the penile tissue causes your body to renew the cells in that area. This means that your penis regains its ability to hold blood, which is how erections work in the first place. Erectile dysfunction is nothing more than an insufficient blood supply.
This can be caused by a number of factors, but the main one is a decay in the quality of penile tissue. The corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum tissues are the two in particular that collect blood and trap it. As you age, these lose their capacity and hold less blood and for shorter durations. The result is a weak or partial erection that doesn’t last long enough. With these tissues revitalized from the PRP treatment, you will realize the incredible benefits that we are about to cover.
The Top 6 Benefits of the P Shot
We could have a longer list, but we wanted to focus on the top benefits of the P Shot for men. Based on feedback from our patients, here are the top 6 benefits you can expect from this groundbreaking treatment:
1. Completely Safe Treatment
Unlike surgical procedures to treat ED, PRP treatment carries no risks. First, you are free from the risks of surgery, including the possible complications of anesthesia. Furthermore, since the PRP comes from your own body, you don’t have to worry about any type of rejection, allergic reaction, or contamination.
Vascular reconstructive surgery is an ED treatment that involves rerouting arteries to the penis to improve blood flow. Not only is this highly invasive, but it also involves a long recovery time. Similarly, implanted devices to achieve erection, although effective, are difficult to insert. Should anything go wrong, you would need additional surgeries to correct the installation.
2. Helps Erections Last Longer
Your penis has cells that act as valves to keep blood inside. PRP treatments restore the function of these cells, giving you longer-lasting erections. If you have premature ejaculation along with ED, then you will likely see an improvement in your sexual stamina after PRP.
3. Gives Stronger, Harder Erections
One of the first things patients notice, these harder erections are usually visible the very next morning. As the cells absorb more blood, they produce a much stronger erection.
This effect is one of the most immediate. However, that doesn’t mean it is the first to fade. Although the benefits of the P Shot do subside over time, most patients find that their erections maintain their strength for at least a year after the treatment.
4. Causes a Gain in Penis Size for Some
Did you know that PRP treatments can push your cells’ performance past their natural standard? As a result, your cells may be able to absorb even more blood than they did in their prime.
Although not every patient reports a gain in size, many have commented that their partners noticed a difference. Size gains may be up to an inch in erect length and potentially half an inch in girth.
5. A Comfortable Treatment
If you are skeptical about this one, we understand. After all, an injection into your penis sounds quite harrowing. Nevertheless, we take great pains to make sure you have no discomfort or pain.
Local, topical anesthetic is applied to your genital area before any injections occur. Once you are numbed, we inject a local anesthetic to completely numb the area, both inside and out. Only then do we administer the PRP. Many patients enter the room nervous only to walk out laughing. Much of the stress is mental, not physical.
6. No Side Effects
Most ED or premature ejaculation treatments have some kind of trade-off. This is true of every surgical procedure and pharmaceutical solution. Inevitably, these kinds of solutions have some negative side effects that cause damage to your body. Whether it’s the scars of surgery or the side effects of a pill, there is some level of sacrifice involved in treating ED through other methods.
PRP breaks that rule. The injection sites are small, meaning there are no scars and no lasting tissue damage. Since there are no incisions or implants, your body has very little to recover from. And, as we have explained, all PRP does is restore your cells to their former glory and beyond. Essentially, it’s impossible to hurt yourself with PRP treatment.
The Process of a PRP Treatment
If you love what you have heard and are interested in the treatment, we would like to walk you through the process. The Priapus Shot is an outpatient treatment that takes about an hour to complete. Our staff will take care of you the entire way.
The process begins with a consultation with the doctor. It is important to be sure that PRP is right for you. ED can be caused by other factors
which should be ruled out before deciding on the Priapus shot.
Once the doctor decides that PRP is right for you, an appointment will be made. You might also be given some dietary recommendations for the days before the treatment. Plasma is replaced fairly regularly, and a healthy diet will ensure that it is at its best for the injection.
The Day of Treatment
We recommend that you arrange for transportation home. Although you may feel like you are able to drive, for your safety it is best to have someone else drive you home. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. You will need to take it off, and tight clothing may be uncomfortable once the local anesthesia begins to wear off.
We will then proceed with the treatment using the methods we’ve already described. You will receive several injections to your penis when the doctor has confirmed that it has been completely numbed.
Our secretaries will set up a follow-up appointment for a few weeks after your treatment. If you are not satisfied with your results, we may recommend a second treatment.
