Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
What Is PRP?
At Elite Body & Med Spa located in Johnstown, CO., we use platelet rich plasma (PRP) to enhance the results and accelerate the healing in a number of our therapies and treatments. This includes microneedling, microchanneling, and laser treatments. In more recent years PRP has been found to be an effective treatment to address several issues causing ED including reduced blood flow to the penis, one of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction. It can also be used to treat Peyronie’s disease, which can cause a curvature to the penis making it difficult or painful to have intercourse. Read on to learn how a Priapus shot, using your body’s own PRP can correct these conditions and much more. Learn why our PRP is more concentrated than other clinics and what this means for a successful treatment.
What Is a Priapus or PRP Shot?
The Priapus shot, sometimes called the PRP-shot or P-shot, is the use of PRP to treat sexual conditions like ED and Peyronie’s, or to enhance men’s sexual performance. Blood is collected from the patient through a simple blood draw. The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelets and plasma (PRP). Specially trained staff spin the blood up to 10 times to provide a high-concentration platelet rich plasma (most clinics spin only 3 times the concentration). Before injecting the patient, numbing cream is applied at the injection points so that the treatment is comfortable. The PRP is then injected at specific points along the shaft of the penis. In the case of Peyronie’s disease injections are also placed directly in the scar tissue.
Over the coming days and weeks, the PRP activates growth hormones and other cells that accelerate healing and assist the body in the repair of damaged tissue. This repair process is especially powerful when combined with GAINSWave®. By combining GAINSWave® with the Priapus shot patients often need fewer treatments and see quicker results with Peyronie’s and ED.
