Much attention is paid to the age-related hormone issues that women can experience. It may be surprising to learn that many men face similar struggles due to testosterone levels that decline with age. In fact, it has been reported that one out of every 10 men experiences problems related to sexual dysfunction. The symptoms that result from this condition can cause one’s self-confidence to falter as their sexual function and libido are impacted and intimate relationships suffer.
The Priapus Shot, better known as P-Shot, is an innovative therapy designed to combat the effects of reduced testosterone levels. This nonsurgical treatment prompts the body’s own natural healing process to rejuvenate, leading to improved and enhanced sexual function. Board-certified physician Dr. Jerry Lewis of Superior T, a testosterone and wellness center in Frisco, TX, explains the science behind the P-Shot and what makes it so effective.
What is the P-Shot?
Named in honor of a Greek fertility god, the noninvasive Priapus Shot or P-Shot is a regenerative therapy that treats erectile dysfunction (ED) by stimulating healing in the penis with concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that is derived from a patient’s own blood. Plasma, which is the liquid portion of the blood, is made mostly of water and proteins. It works to circulate red and white blood cells as well as platelets throughout the body. Platelets are cells that perform growth and healing functions and cause the blood to clot.
Once injected, PRP sets the body’s natural healing process in motion. In most cases, tissue growth occurs and new blood vessels may develop, which can improve blood flow and circulation in the penis. As a result, erections may become stronger, more sustainable and longer lasting. Improved sensation also may be experienced. All of these can make sexual encounters with partners more intense and satisfying. Some men in Frisco, TX have reported a 10%-20% increase in the size, length, and girth of their penis following P-Shot injections.
Who is a candidate?
The P-Shot is ideal for most men during various stages of life, whether or not they grapple with erectile dysfunction. More common in older men than those who are younger, only about 5% of men experience complete ED at age 40. That number jumps to 15% at age 70, when patients may be experiencing health conditions and taking medications that can impact erectile function.
P-Shot also is effective in treating men who struggle with a low sex drive, have difficulty reaching and maintaining an erection or have lost penial sensation. Those whose sexual performance suffers as a result of an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer, diabetes or other conditions that cause the organ to experience diminished blood flow also may be helped. When sexual function is impacted by Peyronie’s Disease, which results from the build-up of scar tissue and causes the penis to bend, P-Shot treatment may prove beneficial. During your consultation at Superior T in Frisco, TX, Dr. Lewis will review your medical history and inquire about any biological conditions that may be the cause of your ED.
Male enhancement surgery can be painful. Because the Priapus Shot is nonsurgical and drug-free, it is a terrific alternative for patients who wish to improve the size and firmness of their penis during sexual encounters. Those in search of more intense erections, who already take medications including Cialis and Viagra, may be able to enjoy experiences that are further enhanced by the effects of the P-Shot.
What happens during a P-Shot procedure?
Like other treatments that utilize platelet-rich plasma, P-Shot procedures begin by drawing a small amount of blood from a patient’s arm. It is taken to our lab and spun in a centrifuge to extract the healthy growth factors. PRP boasts regenerative capabilities that work to stimulate healing.
Two sites on the penis are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before being injected with PRP. Some patients report experiencing a slight stinging at the injection site or mild to moderate discomfort during the procedure. However, because PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood, the P-Shot is non-allergenic. The body is unable to reject it, which means side effects usually are not experienced. Most P-Shot procedures take about 30 minutes to complete. The majority of patients are able to resume their normal activities right away. Some men even feel eager and ready to engage in sexual relations the same day!
What to expect after the procedure
Following your P-Shot treatment at Superior T, blood flow to the penis will begin to be improved. As healthy tissue returns, it is expected that patients will experience the treatment’s many benefits, which may include:
An increase in penile sensitivity
Additional length and girth
Stronger and more firm erections
Greater sexual stamina
Longer lasting and better-quality sexual experiences
Improved intimate relationships
Reduced odds for experiencing premature ejaculation
Improvements in prostate discomfort and urinary incontinence
A restored sense of self-confidence
Most patients experience enhancements in the length, girth, and firmness of their penis for up to 18 months following their P-Shot procedure. An additional injection session may be performed 4-8 weeks later to encourage further growth factor performance and improved blood flow.
P-Shot with GainsWave
The all-natural Priapus Shot is highly effective on its own for treating erectile dysfunction and improving overall sexual health. However, at Superior T in Frisco, TX, it can be combined with revolutionary GainsWave therapy, which also works to combat the effects of ED and enhance sexual performance. During noninvasive GainsWave treatments, a handheld device vibrates gently as pulse wave therapy is delivered to the penis. This effectively breaks up plaque deposits in the blood vessels and improves blood flow within the organ, which also may see an increase in girth. As a result, longer and more spontaneous erections may be experienced, along with more intense orgasms. When GainsWave therapy is performed in conjunction with the P-Shot, the healing effects of PRP may be further enhanced.
Who doesn’t want to improve their sexual health and performance? If you struggle with erectile dysfunction or wish to experience longer-lasting, more satisfying intimate encounters, the Priapus Shot may be for you.
