Has your sexual performance left you dissatisfied? Do you no longer find sex fulfilling? If you want to improve your sexual prowess, Infinity MedSpa of Sudbury, MA has the answer. It’s called the P Shot.
What Is the P Shot?
The “P” in P shot stands for Priapus. Priapus was the Greek god of agriculture and fertility, so it’s only natural that he lend his name to this amazing treatment. Besides that official name, the “P” also carries two other important meanings. First, it’s an injection into your penis. Second, what it injects is an incredible material known as platelet-rich plasma, or PRP.
If the idea of receiving an injection in your penis makes you nervous or uncomfortable, you are not alone. However, once you learn more about what this incredible treatment can do, we know your curiosity will be piqued.
Platelet-Rich Plasma: Amazing Medicine
PRP is the marvelous material that makes this treatment work. It consists of two main ingredients: platelets and plasma. Both of these are found naturally in your blood. Plasma is the main component of blood and acts like a transporter for the other three main components. Those are the red and white blood cells and platelets.
Red blood cells transfer oxygen and carbon dioxide while white blood cells remove impurities and foreign objects from the bloodstream. However, platelets have several special properties that make PRP possible.
The primary task of platelets is to release enzymes that cause your blood to form clots. This stops bleeding and allows the healing process to begin. Furthermore, platelets release other signals that tell the cells near a wound to duplicate and discard damaged cells. Essentially, platelets start the process of recovery whenever a part of your body is damaged. PRP treatments take advantage of this.
The History of PRP
Although treatments like the P Shot are relatively new, PRP has actually been used for over 30 years! The first PRP treatments were theorized on paper in the 70s and then tested in the 80s. Early use of PRP was limited to the most difficult healing situations. Open-heart surgeries and facial reconstructive surgeries were some of the first examples. Doctors found that using PRP at the end of surgery improved healing and recovery in their patients.
This discovery led more doctors to experiment with PRP in the 90s. Sports medicine seized the opportunity in the 00s. Several high-profile athletes from the NFL and NBA adopted PRP as a way to avoid surgery for joint problems. In the last decade, doctors have explored elective PRP treatments. Cosmetic applications and optional injections of PRP have become commonplace across the USA. Currently, the focus is on PRP for anti-aging treatments.
PRP for Anti-Aging
Combatting the negative effects of aging is one of medicine’s loftiest goals. It is at the heart of many of our treatments and procedures at Infinity MedSpa. We want you to feel young, no matter what age you are. PRP can achieve results that no other anti-aging treatment can. We discussed how platelets work to heal your body when you are injured. But this only happens when there is a wound on the body that triggers this mechanism.
Aging is a slow, gradual process. It does not appear abruptly. As a result, it never activates the body’s healing mechanisms. Instead, cells gradually decay. Much like how an old car starts to have mechanical failures, the cells in our tissues and organs lose performance over time. A PRP shot sends the body into inspection mode. The high concentration of platelets tricks the body into believing an injury has occurred. Thus, it removes old, dysfunctional cells.
New cells are produced to take their place. The end result is a massive improvement in performance in the body part. Best of all, it requires no surgery or damage to the surrounding tissues. Truly, PRP is a revolution in modern medicine. It’s no wonder that it has become the first line of defense against many aging-related issues.
Where PRP Comes From
One advantage that PRP has over other types of treatments is that it requires no donor material. The PRP is harvested from your own blood, which means there is no risk of rejection or accidents in the transfusion process.
To produce PRP, a nurse will connect a vein in your arm to a centrifuge machine. This device takes your blood and spins it at high speeds. This will separate your blood into its four key components, which the machine will siphon off.
Once it has collected the platelets and plasma from your blood, the red and white cells are pushed back into your bloodstream. The process repeats until there is enough PRP to complete the treatment. PRP can be made in under 30 minutes. It requires no special testing. All of this makes it the perfect tool for rejuvenation treatments.
How Does PRP Affect Your Penis?
Now that you understand a little more about PRP, it’s time to examine how it works on your penis. When PRP is injected into your penis, it will release platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). This enzyme will encourage cells in the area to produce new cells. If any cells are damaged, PDGF will tell the body to remove them and replace them.
Penile tissue is specialized in its ability to collect blood and retain it. This is the basic mechanism behind erections. When these cells lose their performance over time, erections become weaker and cannot last as long. PRP will rejuvenate the cells responsible for your erection. They will be able to take in blood faster, hold on to it longer, and absorb more blood than before.
The results of this are harder, longer erections. Many men report that their erect penis gains size after receiving a P Shot. Erections come more easily and last longer than before. Best of all, there are no negative side effects. Medications and surgical procedures often have unwanted side effects, but fortunately, we can avoid all of these with this simple treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for the P Shot?
Although this shot will benefit most men, erectile dysfunction (ED) can be more complicated than this shot can address. It is important to consider the various causes of ED. Causes can be mental or physical, and often there is a combination of both factors. A Priapus Shot works wonders on physical symptoms, but it won’t necessarily solve mental blocks.
Physical Factors to Consider
Physical factors that can contribute to ED include the degradation of penile tissue due to aging. After a PRP treatment, you should find that this tissue is revitalized and far more responsive. PRP can also be an excellent option if you have endured any sort of physical trauma to the genitals.
Lifestyle factors may be contributing to your ED. Obesity and smoking, in particular, are causes of ED. You may want to try adopting a healthier lifestyle before pursuing treatment. Fortunately, there are no medical contraindications for PRP treatment. It is FDA approved and suitable for just about everyone.
Mental Factors to Consider
Unlike physical issues, mental issues may require alternative treatments. Stress, depression, and relationship issues can lead to ED, and PRP is not going to make those problems go away. Certain antidepressants can have a negative impact on libido as well. You should be sure to mention any medications that you’re taking to the doctor.
This is why every treatment starts with a thorough consultation to ensure that a PRP treatment is the right course of action. We want to make sure that your treatment has the best results possible.
How the Treatment Works
At Infinity MedSpa, we work tirelessly to make sure that your experience at our facility is pleasant and painless throughout. Our team of doctors, nurses, and assistants will always be on hand to help you with whatever you need.
After a consultation determines that a P Shot is right for you, we’ll set a date for the appointment. This is what you should expect before coming in for treatment.
Before the Treatment
PRP treatments are extremely easy to prepare for. We recommend that you have someone drive you home from our office. Even though this is an outpatient treatment, it is always safer to go home with someone else.
The doctor may give you some dietary recommendations for the days before the treatment. The plasma in your blood is replaced every two or three days, and by eating the proper foods, you can ensure that the plasma used will be of the highest quality. Besides that, your only responsibility is to relax and arrive on time.
The Day of the Treatment
To start your treatment, the doctor will connect you to the centrifuge to begin preparing the PRP. This process can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how much PRP is needed. You may feel changes in your blood pressure during this phase of the treatment. This is perfectly normal and should not be uncomfortable. If you have ever donated plasma or platelets before, then you should be quite familiar with this part.
Once the centrifuge completes its work, the doctor will begin to prepare the area for the injection. Naturally, we understand that receiving an injection in the genitals can be concerning. That’s why we will ask you to apply plenty of topical anesthetic before continuing. Only when you have confirmed that you have no feeling or sensation at all will we begin.
The doctor will fill a syringe with your PRP and inject it into several locations throughout your penis. After completing the treatment, a dressing will be applied and you can redress. The whole process should take less than an hour.
After the Treatment
The doctor will give you some instructions for the days following treatment. However, PRP treatments require very little aftercare. In fact, you can usually resume sexual activity within 24 hours! A follow-up visit will be scheduled to assess your progress and evaluate the results of the treatment. If you are not satisfied with the results, the doctor can investigate further and determine if a second treatment would be beneficial.
Most people respond right away. Although some results are noticeable in the first few days, complete results will be noticeable within the first two weeks. We’re sure that you will be amazed by the results. Many patients continue to receive additional treatments over time for even longer lasting results. One shot a year is recommended to maintain peak performance.
