PRP for men’s Health
What is PRP and how is it used to help men who experience ED?
PRP stimulates repair and boosts mesenchymal progenitor stem cell proliferation by containing growth and healing factors. PRP's natural healing mechanism boosts the body's efforts by providing a larger concentration of platelets to the affected area. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative treatment for ED.
PRP is designed to tap into your body’s own healing potential by using the patient’s platelet-rich plasma to help stimulate new tissue growth, with the goal of restoring blood flow and healing muscle cells.
Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy may help improve sexual performance in men who experience ED, particularly when used in combination with existing treatments.
- Stronger, firmer erections
- Easier to achieve and maintain erections (i.e., improved sexual stamina)
- Increased penile length and girth
- Improvement in or resolution of penile curvature from Peyronie’s Disease
- Resolution of penile pain with erection
- Increased sensitivity in the penis
- Better overall blood flow to the penis
How does it work?
The high concentration of platelets in PRP releases growth factors and proteins, which activate stem cells and encourage cellular repair and regeneration wherever they are applied in the body. Collagen creation and the construction of new blood vessels also occur, which helps with tissue repair.
Frequently Asked Questions
At the time of the procedure, a tiny amount of blood is extracted in the office. After that, your blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood. Platelets are separated and put back into the body where they are needed. There is no discomfort because the skin is numbed with numbing cream and the penis is blocked.
Our office administers the PRP injection. From start to finish, it should take around 60 minutes, although we generally leave a little more time. After the treatment, you may drive yourself home.
Yes. The use of a VED, or Vacuum Erection Device, is required for the technique to be successful. This is done twice a day on average. It only takes a few minutes of your time, yet success rates are frequently lower without it. We'll show you how to do it for the first time.
On the same day, about 4 hours after the surgery, you can resume sexual activity.
