Blood is made of several substances, including plasma, red and white blood cells, and platelets. Platelets are best known for creating blood clots when a cut or injury occurs, which starts the healing process for the area. This occurs because platelets are a series of proteins known as growth factors. The proteins found in platelets are a big part of the body’s healing processes, which is why platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become a popular treatment for healing and treating a number of conditions. PRP is made by taking your own blood and putting it through a process that creates a greater concentration of growth factors. At Superior T in McKinney, TX, Dr. Jerry Lewis and his team use PRP injections to treat alopecia hair loss, erectile dysfunction (ED), and Peyronie’s disease.

The best candidates for PRP therapy are those suffering from hair loss due to alopecia, but it can also be used to treat erectile dysfunction. PRP therapy shows great promise for patients with erectile difficulties, including those that result from Peyronie’s disease. It can also be an alternative to surgery for those with Peyronie’s and for typical drugs that are prescribed for ED.
For PRP therapy, the patient will begin by having his blood drawn. The blood will then be put through centrifuge action in order to make a more concentrated formula of growth factors in platelets. Once the PRP is ready, it will be injected into the area of treatment. In some cases, a combination of PRP and a local anesthetic is used to both relieve pain and promote healing.
What to Expect
For alopecia treatment, anticipated results can be expected within two to three months. When used to treat Peyronie’s disease, men should be able to see a gradual reduction of the curvature of the penis over time. Additional treatment methods may be added on to PRP therapy in order to combat any other symptoms the patient may be experiencing due to the condition. For the treatment of ED, patients should begin to experience thicker, firmer, and longer-lasting erections over time.
