Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has been around for decades and used in many areas of medicine, particularly in the treatment of sports-related injuries and osteoarthritis. One of the latest applications for PRP therapy is in the treatment of male sexual dysfunction and penis enhancement. A patented new treatment called the P-Shot uses PRP therapy and the growth factors in a patient’s blood to jump-start the growth of tissue and blood vessels in the penis.
What is the P-Shot?
The P-Shot, or Priapus Shot, is based on PRP therapy. The patient’s blood is drawn from his arm and spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and growth factors into platelet-rich plasma. Numbing cream is applied to the penis then the PRP is injected in five areas. The platelets contain growth factors that spur the growth of new tissue. A penis pump is generally used by the patient for a month or two to distribute the growth factors.
The P-Shot is a one-time procedure that takes around 30 minutes, although repeat procedures are safe. Once the PRP is injected, the growth factors attract stem cells that trigger the growth of new tissue.
Most men report noticing a difference within days, although improvements will continue over a period of one month as the PRP works. For some men, the results of a single procedure are permanent; other men require a second treatment.
The Priapus Shot is a safe alternative to dangerous cosmetic surgery procedures like penile lengthening and penile implants, which have very low satisfaction rates and a high risk of complications like a downward-pointing erection or scar tissue. PRP therapy uses a man’s own blood so there is no risk of allergic reaction and no side effects aside from temporary discomfort at the injection sites.
Treating Sexual Dysfunction with the P-Shot
There have been dozens of studies conducted on PRP therapie, but relatively few done on PRP in terms of male sexual function and penis enhancement. Still, the science behind the Priapus Shot is sound. The growth of new blood vessels improves circulation in the penis, which results in improved sexual performance, increased sensation, and stronger erections. The P-Shot seems especially beneficial in treating sexual dysfunction in men who have lost function due to diabetes or heart disease, particularly those who cannot take erectile dysfunction medication like Viagra for health reasons or those men who find medication ineffective.
The Priapus Shot and Male Enhancement
The platelet rich plasma also works to stimulate the growth of new tissue, which increases the girth and length of the penis. PRP therapy is currently the only non-surgical, effective way to increase the girth and size of the penis while simultaneously improving problems like erectile dysfunction, weak erections, and premature ejaculation. The amount of enhancement varies by man, although the P-Shot can increase length and girth by up to one inch or more.
Unlike fillers like Restylane — which are sometimes used to increase the girth of the penis — PRP therapy does not result in nodules or lumps, and it works to form new blood vessels and grow new tissue.
There are few methods of male enhancement that actually work. Surgery, for example, can increase the size and girth of the penis although the side effects are hardly worth it. Cosmetic surgery to increase the length of the penis involves cutting ligaments holding the penis in position then attaching weights to the penis for months. This often leads to scar tissue and a weakened penis that may break. The procedure itself costs up to $15,000 and only one out of every three men were happy with their results.
The only other known non-surgical treatment that can increase the length of the penis is the traction method. This treatment requires using a penile extender for up to 6 hours every day for a minimum of four months. While it does work and add an average inch to a flaccid penis (0.67 to an erect penis), it is cumbersome and there are some potential side effects.
The Priapus Shot remains the only non-surgical, safe, and effective means of male enhancement.
The Bottom Line
While the P-Shot is not guaranteed to cure male sexual dysfunction, it is effective for many men, especially those who suffer from erectile dysfunction due to heart disease, poor circulation, or diabetes. It’s also one of the very few safe and effective non-surgical means of increasing the length and girth of the penis. Most men require a single procedure at a cost comparable to filler injections with results that may be permanent or last at least a few years.
