The P-Shot has been receiving a lot of media attention recently as a treatment for men suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) and the results seen thus far from the procedure that utilizes the Priapus Shot® have been extremely encouraging to say the least. Named after the Greek god of fertility, Priapus, the P-Shot is actually a nonsurgical procedure that utilizes the growth factors a man already has in his own body to naturally stimulate penis rejuvenation and growth and thus helping men who suffer from the symptoms of ED.
An extremely simple and nonsurgical procedure that basically only takes only about fifteen to twenty minutes at the doctor's office, the physician-administered P-Shot is designed to help men with sexual dysfunction issues and problems. The Priapus Shot® can help men who are suffering from the following:
• The inability to obtain or maintain erections when sexually aroused
• Have an incomplete erection
• Suffer from diminished stamina during sexual intercourse
Since erectile dysfunction affects about half of the men over the age of forty in the United States alone, the Priapus Shot® procedure has been clinically proven as an effective alternative in managing the normal effects of aging, with positive effects lasting over a year in numerous individuals.
How is the P-Shot Procedure Actually Performed?
During the P-Shot procedure, the doctor will start by applying a numbing anesthetic cream to the patient's penis. The patient's blood is then drawn from the arm, the same as it is when a patient is having a simple blood test. Using a centrifuge, plus specialized technology and methodology, a man's own platelets that are found normally in his blood are then isolated and the result is that the concentrated, naturally occurring platelets are now known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). They're quickly transferred into another tube where the addition of a little calcium chloride solution "trick" the platelets into thinking that they are still in the patient's body and that the man's body has been injured. These "tricked" platelets then release their almost "magical" growth and healing factors into the liquid also present in the tube. The physician, using a very thin needle, will then inject this Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) back into very specific areas of the man's penis. The patient will feel very little pain (or none at all) because this area has been previously numbed by the application of the anesthetic cream.
Results Seen With the P-Shot and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This medical process has been clinically proven to help rejuvenate parts of the human body, including the penis, and to help restore them to their more youthful state in numerous documented trials and studies. Initially developed for use primarily in athletics, the P-Shot's efficacy and results lead to the use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in other surgical applications such as plastic surgery and facelifts. As seen with the initial treatment of athletic injuries, the cosmetic use of the P-Shot demonstrated the following positive results:
- No allergic reactions (since this is actually coming from a patient's own body, the body does not react to it as a foreign substance)
- Bruising is minimal (if at all)
- The effects lasted at least 18 months and in many cases were permanent
- There was actual growth of new tissue via the stimulation of unipotent stem cells.
- The the treatment stimulated new blood flow with new blood vessels (not from the simple dilation of the existing blood vessels)
In many men suffering from the symptoms of erectile dysfunction the patient may additionally notice an increase in penis size, as well as enjoying the positive effects of alleviating their ED symptoms immediately after the initial procedure. This has been supported by research data and attributed to the fact that the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) both induces and promotes new tissue growth. Many diseases are treatable with new tissue growth and erectile dysfunction is among them. In fact, all the way back in 2003 in the Journal of Urology, while discussing new therapies for erectile dysfunction it was noted that “neovascularization using vascular growth factors has been demonstrated to be feasible in animal models.” Translation: If you inject growth factors into an animal’s penis, then it grows new blood vessels and new tissue and gets a bigger harder penis.
The Priapus Shot® Provider Group
Only members of what's known as the Priapus Shot® Provider Group are considered to be properly trained in the P-Shot procedure and therefore have the proper understanding of the methodology and follow the standards which include the use of laboratory equipment approved by the FDA for the preparation of platelets to go back into a patient's body and the use of very specific methods. Others may be doing a similar process, or they may be doing an inferior process, but only those physicians listed in the Priapus Shot® Provider Group are licensed to use the procedure. Anyone else using the name is possibly doing an inferior or even dangerous procedure. At best, they are illegally claiming to be in a group to which they do not belong.
