P-Shot® Treatment in Oakville
What is the P-Shot?
The P-Shot, sometimes referred to as the Priapus Shot®, is the commercial name for a type of PRP therapy treatment that is used specifically for male sexual enhancement.
The P-Shot can:
- Strengthen, and straighten the penis
- Increase circulation
- Improve pleasure and sensation
- Help improve the results of other sexual enhancement therapies and treatments
How does the P-Shot work?
Your blood is made up of four main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Each of these components has a specific job to do in the human body.
Red blood cells transport oxygen throughout the body. White blood cells fend off viruses, bacteria, and infections that invade the body and are a key part of the immune system. Platelets work to heal wounds and clot blood with its special growth factors. Plasma is the liquid component of blood, and its main job is to transport blood cells and platelets through the body via arteries and blood vessels. Platelets and plasma are the components used in PRP therapy. PRP is an acronym for platelet-rich plasma.
In PRP therapy, a healthcare provider takes a sample of your blood and runs it through a centrifuge to isolate the plasma with high concentrations of platelets. The provider then takes that plasma sample and injects it back into your body, typically at the site of an injury, where the high concentration of platelets can accelerate and improve the body’s natural healing process. PRP therapy can be used to treat many different ailments: arthritis, sports injuries, tendonitis, Achilles’ heel, rotator cuff tears, joint pain, hair loss, and more.
The P-Shot is a specific method of PRP therapy that involves injecting platelet-rich plasma directly into the penile shaft. The contents of the P-Shot work to heal damaged blood vessels in the penis, resulting in a stronger erection, improved circulation, and better sensations.
What conditions does the P-Shot treat?
The P-Shot is typically used to treat erectile dysfunction, a condition that occurs when men are unable to get or maintain an erection long enough for sexual intercourse. It’s a treatment option for Peyronie’s disease, a condition in which scar tissue build-up causes an unnatural bend in the penis. The P-Shot can be used for more than just these two conditions — it can also enhance sexual performance and function.
The P-Shot is sometimes used in conjunction with GAINSWave® therapy, another noninvasive treatment option that treats the root cause of most erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease cases: built-up microplaque and scar tissue in the penis’s blood vessels. GAINSWave therapy uses acoustic sound waves to break up the microplaque and encourage the growth of new blood vessels. The end result is a longer and stronger erection. Using the P-Shot along with GAINSWave therapy helps the blood vessels heal and develop more healthy tissue.
Oakwood Health P-Shot patients are given the option to receive GAINSWave® treatment to maximize the effects of both of these powerful sexual enhancement therapies.
Why should I consider the P-Shot for treatment?
Other sexual enhancement procedures often involve prescription drugs with undesirable side effects. Depending on your pre-existing conditions (if any), these drugs may not be safe for your use. Some procedures are surgical, which means you’ll have to take time to recover, and there are more risks involved, such as being prescribed potentially addictive and dangerous painkillers. Not everybody has that kind of time or is physically able to take those kinds of risks.
The P-Shot does not require the use of prescription drugs or powerful painkillers and does not involve any surgical procedures. It is a simple injection procedure that is typically done in under an hour. Recovery is quick. Most P-Shot patients are able to return to work, go back home, or resume their typical daily activities on the same day of the injection, or the following day.
Is the P-Shot safe?
The P-Shot is a drug-free, noninvasive procedure that can improve your sexual performance and function. Because the P-Shot uses your blood, there is little to no chance of your body rejecting the treatment or having a reaction to it.
The risks involved from the P-Shot injection are the same as any other injection-based treatment. You may experience redness, swelling, or bruising at the site of injection, which typically subside and go away in 4 to 6 days. In very rare cases, it is possible to develop an infection or scarring at the site of injection.
Where can I find an accredited P-Shot provider in Oakville?
If traditional treatments and medications are not working for your sexual health issues, it may be time to talk to your doctor about seeing an accredited P-Shot provider in Oakville, or contact an accredited provider directly.
Accredited P-Shot providers are required to undergo training. Be cautious of non-accredited providers; these are healthcare professionals and organizations that have failed to meet the standards of the P-Shot training.
