What is the PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a procedure that can improve erectile function and sexual performance even in men who've experienced erectile dysfunction (ED) or decreased performance due to aging, an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer surgery, medication side effects, or other conditions such as vascular disease or diabetes. Unlike temporary ED treatments, such as Viagra or Cialis or Trimix injections, Platelet Rich Plasma can deliver long-lasting results. Platelet Rich Plasma is a painless intra-penile injection using a man's own platelets along with more than 30 bioactive proteins and growth factors in blood to improve tissue healing, nerve regeneration, and rejuvenation of tissue. It represents the cutting edge in medical innovation for male enhancement.
Who is a good candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma?
Men who are interested in increased sexual performance, penile enhancement, or an improved sex life can benefit from the procedure. 50% of men aged 35 to 65 will experience erectile dysfunction or other sexual problems.
Platelet Rich Plasma may also help men who have decreased erectile function due to prostate problems, medication side effects, or other medical conditions such as hypertension, vascular disease, or diabetes. Platelet Rich Plasma may also help men who sill experience ED after taking medications such as Viagra or Cialis.
How does Platelet Rich Plasma work?
Platelet Rich Plasma involves harvesting a man's own plasma enriched growth factors or PRP, concentrating it, and injecting it into specific areas of the penis. Over time, PRP facilitates nerve regeneration, smooth muscle cell formation, enhanced endothelial function, and increased nitric oxide production. Together, renewed nerve, muscle, and blood vessel health enable more youthful sexual expression and erectile function. In addition, Platelet Rich Plasma is autologous; therefore, this is no rejection or side effects from the procedure.
What is the process for Platelet Rich Plasma?
First, blood is withdrawn into a syringe similar to having blood drawn for routine lab work. The blood is put into a specialized centrifuge to separate stem cells and growth factors. After applying an effective, high-potency numbing cream or performing a dorsal penile nerve block, concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is painlessly injected into the corpus cavernosa and glans of the penis.
What kind of results are seen and how fast do they occur?
Results can be seen immediately in terms of a temporary increase in penile size. However, improved blood flow, overall penile length and girth, enhanced sensitivity, and increased function may take at least 3 weeks to fully occur. Longer lasting, firmer erections and increased pleasure are common.
Are there any side effects or risks?
Platelet Rich Plasma Penile Injection is a simple in-office procedure which takes about 30 minutes from blood draw to injection. Since Platelet Rich Plasma uses platelets and growth factors from a man's own blood there are no side effects. The topical numbing cream may last 4 to 6 hours. If shorter-acting numbness is desired, a dorsal penile nerve block can be performed.
Where are the PRP injections given?
Platelet Rich Plasma is applied to the parts of the penis that are most important to sexual arousal and erectile function, specifically the corpus carvernosa on either side of the shaft of the penis and the glans or head of the penis.
Is it painful?
Before giving the injection, a topical anesthetic is applied to the penis or a dorsal penile nerve block with lidocaine is performed. The anesthetic allows the Platelet Rich Plasma to be performed with no pain in the areas that are the most sensitive and most important in sexual arousal and function.
How much increase in size can I expect?
It may take 3 to 12 weeks to realize the full extent of male enhancement from the PRP Injections; however, many men report increases in length and girth of their penis.
Is there anything I need to do after receiving Platelet Rich Plasma?
To ensure the best results, it's ideal to use a vacuum pump after receiving Platelet Rich Plasma. The pumping action stimulates the PRP and other ingredients in Platelet Rich Plasma to continue the regenerative process and will help to maximize increased girth and length. Results may be greater when the Platelet Rich Plasma is performed in conjunction with extracorporeal shock wave treatment. In addition, using prescribed apomorphine along with Viagra or Cialis may stimulate sex drive and function.
How much do PRP Injections cost?
Cost is considerably less than long-term ED medications or surgery especially since results may last up to one year or more. Please call or email the office for more information including cost and ask for Daniel: 503-230-7990 or email@example.com.
