The Priapus Shot® (also known as the P-Shot®) uses plasma enriched growth factors to encourage blood flow to the penis and enhance male sexual performance. This form of treatment involves several injections into the penis.
Before receiving this treatment, a medical professional will draw blood from the patient’s body and place it into a machine that will isolate the growth factors found in white and red blood cells. This process creates a formula that contains many of the active ingredients that are known to promote tissue regeneration and improve erectile function. The P-Shot® has been used as a part of healthcare regimens to treat men who struggle with Peyronie’s disease.
Common Causes of Peyronie’s Disease
Peyronie’s disease is a condition where excessive scar tissue in the penis causes an unnatural bend or curve that makes it difficult to engage in sexual activity. Although it’s not life-threatening, studies from Translational Andrology and Urology suggests that there are very real psychological aspects of Peyronie’s disease and that at least 80% of men with this condition suffer from them. Researchers suggest Peyronie’s disease is the result of a traumatic injury to the groin. As penile tissue repairs itself, scarring or plaque develops to heal the wound. However, this causes the penis to take on an unusual shape that results in a severe bend or curve that makes penetrative sex difficult.
While an injury is the most closely associated cause of the disease, other possible factors include:
- Prostate cancer surgery
- Autoimmune disorders
The University of Utah estimates that anywhere from four percent to 13% of the male population is affected by Peyronie’s disease to some extent. However, because of underreporting, this percentage is estimated to be much higher.
The P-Shot® for Peyronie’s Disease Treatment
The platelets that make up the formula of the P-Shot® contain growth factors that are known to have rejuvenating qualities. Because the P-Shot® is made from the patient’s own blood, there are no adverse side effects. According to Investigative and Clinical Urology, using the P-Shot® for treating Peyronie’s disease and other common urologic conditions is emerging as a viable option for treatment, as its ability to repair scar tissue and stimulate growth are promising benefits.
The procedure itself is painless and takes less than an hour with no downtime. After blood is drawn from the patient’s body and the growth factors are isolated, the formula is injected into various sites on the penis. While many men may shy away from the idea of multiple injections, the treatment is painless, as a local anesthetic is applied before therapy begins. Once injected, the platelet-rich plasma goes to work, releasing growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair.
Doctors may recommend that patients who receive the P-Shot® use a vacuum erection device (VED) twice daily to maximize the effects of the procedure.
After completing the course of their P-Shot® treatment, some clients have reported:
- Improved penile girth and width
- Stronger orgasms
- Enhanced penis sensitivity
- Increased sexual stamina
- A boost in self-confidence and libido
Many factors, including a man’s physical health and lifestyle, will play into how quickly they will see results from the P-Shot®. Normally results can be seen in as little as three weeks.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Treatment
While the P-Shot® is one type of treatment for Peyronie’s disease, it isn’t the only option.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy uses high-frequency, low-intensity shockwaves, or soundwaves, to remove the micro-plaque caused by Peyronie’s disease. Shockwave treatment, like that of GAINSWave® therapy, can improve blood flow to the penis and help stimulate the growth of new blood vessels without the use of a needle.
This in-office, non-invasive form of treatment typically takes 30 minutes. The number of procedures necessary depends upon the severity of a man’s health condition. Although men seek GAINSWave® therapy to remedy their issues related to erectile dysfunction, one doesn’t need to have a preexisting condition to benefit from this treatment. Any man looking for a boost in his sexual performance and ability has something to gain from this revolutionary procedure.
