At New You Medical Health and Surgery Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL, we strive to revitalize your health by combining a personalized, holistic approach to medicine with the latest in regenerative technology. As we age, our bodies decline and struggle to perform. Nowhere is this truer than in men’s sexual health. But thanks to the P Shot Treatment, you can rejuvenate your sex life.
The Priapus Shot, as it’s formally known, promises to restore sexual function and directly address the physical causes of erectile dysfunction. It does this without any medication or surgery. We often get asked if it actually works. We understand the skepticism, but this isn’t snake oil. It’s science.
Does The P Shot Really Work?
The short answer is yes, absolutely. Thousands of people have undergone this treatment and consistently report improved erectile performance, including less difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection. Many patients even notice an increase in firmness, and possibly length or girth. The sensation is heightened significantly, producing better quality orgasms and sexual satisfaction.
You may even see a reduction in other problems, such as urinary incontinence or the side effects of prostate problems. It takes 2-3 weeks to see the bulk of the results, but you can notice changes in as little as a day or two. The healing process continues to work in the background for some time, meaning you may even continue to see improvements after a month has passed.
Another advantage of this treatment is that it can work for nearly everyone. There are hardly any contraindications that would prevent you from receiving treatment, and positive outcomes have been consistently observed across a wide variety of patients. The degree to which it produces optimal results may vary from person to person, but there are virtually no “non-responders” who fail to see improvement.
How Does The P Shot Work?
What makes the P-Shot so effective at treating erectile dysfunction? There’s no secret formula or complex chemical combination. The treatment is performed by using your body’s own healing powers, which we trigger by using platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.
First, we draw some blood from a vein in your arm to get a sample. This sample is placed into a centrifuge, which spins it rapidly. This spinning separates the blood into its core components, as each has a different weight they will separate like oil and water once spun. From there, we can draw off just the platelets and a small volume of blood plasma. This process is repeated a couple of times to maximize the concentration of platelets.
Once we have a proper dose of PRP, we can inject it back into your body to deliver it exactly where it is needed. In this case, we’ll inject it directly into specific parts of your penis to produce the desired results. We ensure that the entire experience is pain-free by using a topical anesthetic followed by a local anesthetic, so you don’t have to worry about any discomfort.
What happens when you inject PRP back into the body? Platelets behave differently when they’ve been concentrated in a small location. When platelets get packed together, they start to release growth factors, which are proteins that tell your healthy cells to multiply. They also release other factors that find damaged cells and remove them from the area.
This is almost identical to what happens when you cut yourself or sustain a serious injury. Consider how your body responds to a cut. First, your platelets detect the outflow of blood and they release a clotting factor to tell your blood to clot and stop the bleeding. That clot will have a higher concentration of platelets since it is much denser than your free-flowing blood.
That concentration gets even better because your body then creates a swelling response in the wounded area. That swelling allows for even more blood in the area, and therefore more platelets. Once your body has created this platelet-rich environment, healing happens. It’s not magic, it’s just how your body repairs itself.
Using Your Body’s Natural Talents
Of course, we hope you never sustain a serious injury to your penis, and we’re not about to cause one. By creating PRP outside the body and reinjecting it, we’re mimicking the conditions after an injury, but without doing any harm whatsoever. We essentially make the body believe that an injury happened, so it responds by healing the affected tissue.
Even if you’ve never been injured, your cells have decayed with age. They’re not what they used to be. This is the source of most erectile dysfunction cases, especially after age 40. But once we apply PRP, those worn-out cells will get replaced with healthy, strong cells. And all of that happens without using any medication or surgery to achieve these outcomes.
This process starts almost immediately after the treatment, and many men report significantly noticeable results in just a day or two. You’ll see that as your body replaces your damaged cells, your erections get stronger with every passing day. Within 2-3 weeks, you’ll have a completely different sexual experience. You may even see those results continue to improve in the following weeks.
How PRP Transforms Penile Tissues
So what exactly does PRP do once it’s been delivered to your penis? There are a couple of key tissues that we aim for when applying the PRP. The primary one is the corpus cavernosum, which is a sponge-like tissue that soaks up blood and expands. This is how you achieve an erection in the first place, so we need this tissue to be in top shape.
We also target muscle cells that let the blood in. Think of these as the floodgates, if they won’t open, you won’t have an erection. These cells normally restrict the flow of blood, and they won’t open up unless they detect nitric oxide. However, as you age, they can become less sensitive to nitric oxide and won’t open the gates.
PRP fixes that too by swapping out those cells for healthier ones that are more receptive to the body’s signals. To ensure that we get PRP to all the right places, we make several injections along the penis to target these specific tissues.
Supplementing The P-Shot
To encourage the PRP to move around and not leave any cells untouched, we also recommend using other treatments in combination with PRP. A vacuum pump can help to create pressure inside the penis, which pushes the PRP around and helps it sink into every cell.
Similarly, acoustic wave treatments can also stimulate cells and encourage them to respond to the growth factors released by the PRP. We also typically recommend taking some natural supplements that provide more nitric oxide to your blood.
While most patients will see great results after the first treatment, bear in mind that the more advanced your age, the harder it will be to restore function completely with one treatment. The older you get, the less healthy cells you have to start with, which means the process of replacing your damaged cells is going to take longer. A second treatment is sometimes needed, or you may want to get a follow-up treatment after a few months.
Our Personalized Approach
We realize that no two people are the same. Personalized treatment is more likely to be effective, so we make sure to determine exactly what you need before we even begin. Based on a preliminary examination, we can custom design a treatment program just for you. So not all patients may need to use all the supplementary techniques we just mentioned.
We also make sure to rule out other causes of ED that the P-Shot cannot overcome. For instance, if your ED is the result of mental issues such as stress or depression, we may recommend you wait to try PRP. PRP may still help you, as a restored body does tend to give you more confidence and that can diminish mental hindrances.
A Tested and Proven Method
If you’re still hesitant to believe in the power of platelet-rich plasma, just take a moment to consider how widespread its use has become. Doctors have been using PRP for over 50 years to improve patient outcomes. Early on it was reserved for intensive surgical procedures, applied at the very end to help patients heal faster. Since then, researchers have been experimenting with PRP in almost every branch of medicine.
Orthopedic medical researchers have found that PRP can help damaged ligaments and tendons heal without surgery. PRP can improve the quality of the discs in your spine and restore the health of your bursae, which are crucial to prevent chronic joint pain. These benefits are so consistent that most professional sports teams use PRP as a first response on injured athletes.
In the last couple of decades, a lot of studies have been conducted to determine how effective PRP is at dealing with cosmetic treatments. PRP can combat baldness, rejuvenate your face, and even improve women’s sexual experience with the O-Shot. Every study consistently reports that PRP is the safest form of treatment, and it’s also highly effective.
The Safest Form of ED Treatment
Why do we promote the P-Shot before any other form of ED Treatment? Primarily because it works, but also because it’s so well-tolerated and safe for our patients. Our main goal at New You Medical is to give you the best outcome with the fewest possible complications and side effects. PRP is perfect for that.
Since the PRP itself comes straight out of your arm, there’s no risk of rejection because we’re not using any donor material. We do not add any medications or enhancers to the PRP shot. It’s strictly what came out of you, and therefore it’s completely safe to use. To date, no study of PRP has found any sort of adverse reaction or serious complication.
Aside from mild swelling at the point of injection, which as we explained before is a good thing to have, there is no downside to PRP. It just works.
