The Priapus Shot® (P-Shot®) involves PRP Therapy to treat Peyronie’s disease without resorting to surgery. It is also a solution for erectile dysfunction and male impotence to boost your sexual performance, stamina and girth. The Priapus Shot® procedure at the Urban Aesthetix Clinic uses injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood for firmer, stronger, larger and more powerful erections, whatever your age.
PRP has been an alternative to surgery in regenerating skin tissue in wound healing, orthopaedics, ENT, neurosurgery and maxillofacial surgery by promoting safe and natural healing. The technique in non-surgical aesthetics was first used by Dr Charles Runels, creator of the Vampire Hair Restoration®.
PRP Therapy will improve Peyronie’s disease (where there is a bend in the penis during erection due to fibrous tissue occurring in an area of the penis) without the need for surgery, as there is an improvement to the tissue and resolution of the fibrous tissue with each treatment.
Blood platelets contain growth factors that stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration. Plasma contains fibrinogen, a protein that catches platelets at a wound site to form a clot. Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy is therefore a completely natural way for your skin to rejuvenate and repair since it uses your own blood and your body’s own healing powers in inducing tissue growth.
An amount of blood is drawn, just like in a blood test, and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets and plasma from the other components of blood. The PRP is usually then activated with calcium (chloride or gluconate) to trick the platelets into thinking that they are in the body and the body has been injured.
The PRP is then injected into the penis, creating the equivalent of mini-wounds. Multi-potent stem cells already in your skin therefore become activated ‘believing’ that new and younger tissue is needed. As a result, new tissue that includes new collagen is grown, new fatty tissue is produced for skin smoothness and new blood vessels (neovascularisation) are formed to increase blood flow, increase girth and width and strengthen erection.
