What Actually Happens During And After The P-Shot Procedure?
The P-shot is a form of platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy that is used to treat erectile dysfunction in men. It can also help increase sexual performance and can even potentially increase the length and girth of your penis. So, what actually happens during and after the P-shot procedure?
The P Shot for erectile dysfunction is created using your own blood. For the P shot procedure, your blood will be drawn. This will be like any other time blood is taken and shouldn’t be that painful. The blood will then be run through a centrifuge that concentrates the platelet level in plasma and then the plasma is extracted to be used in shot form.
The P Shot is then directly injected into the penis. This may sound painful, but the penis is numbed with a topical numbing cream before the procedure. As a result, the procedure should not be painful for most men, but some men may experience slight discomfort but nothing too alarming. After the procedure, some men may experience slight side effects from the injection such as swelling, redness, or mild bruising.
After the procedure, some men may see immediate results from this erectile dysfunction treatment, but most men will see positive changes to their sexual health within three to four weeks. Some men may not even notice significant changes to their erectile dysfunction for up to three months but do not worry, it is working to heal your penile tissue.
How the P-Shot® Can Improve Erectile Function for a Man
The P-Shot works to improve erectile function in men using platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP works with the body to release more growth factors that accelerate the body’s natural healing ability. The P Shot is one of the latest treatments for erectile dysfunction and uses PRP to repair penile tissue, nerve damage, and increase blood flow to the penis.
With repaired penile tissue, nerves, and increased blood flow, it will be easier to achieve and sustain an erection. PRP and traditional treatments differ in that PRP works to repair the actual damage causing erectile dysfunction while traditional treatments often just treat the symptoms of ED. Other benefits of the P-Shot can include increased sensitivity, increased sexual stamina, and an increase to both the length and the girth of your penis.
Understanding the Repair and Growth of Erectile Muscles After the P-Shot
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy has long been used to treat as a form of regenerative medicine to treat sports injuries like tennis elbow and muscle strains and the same concept applies to its use on the penis.
The P Shot works with your body by releasing growth factors that increase collagen production which helps repair penile tissue. Collagen is a type of protein found in the body that provides strength, structure and support to your muscles, skin, bones, and connective tissue. With this increase in collagen, the penile muscles are able to repair and grow. After the P-shot, the erectile muscles begin to repair. Some men notice immediate results while others will notice results typically after a few weeks.
