You can have erectile dysfunction from physical or psychological causes. When you have trouble getting an erection or maintaining one, this can be from an underlying health condition, such as heart disease or diabetes. You might also develop this condition if you have anxiety, stress, or relationship problems. This condition occurs when you have problems with blood flow to your penis, so correcting this can help improve your ability to get or maintain an erection.
The Priapus Shot (also known as P-Shot), contains your body’s own platelets in the form of a Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix, a more bio-active type of platelet-rich plasma. This gel works quickly to stimulate the growth of new tissue and improve blood flow to your penis. It also promotes the development of new, healthy nerve tissue in the targeted area, which results in increased sensitivity. This higher sensitivity can help you get an erection more easily.
Thomas Pulice, PA-C takes a sample of your blood at the start of this procedure, which he then puts into a centrifuge for separating the platelets. He removes the red blood cells from your plasma and concentrates the remaining platelets again before adding activators to form the Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix. This gel is thicker than normal platelet-rich plasma and must be quickly injected for it to work effectively.
Thomas Pulice, PA-C takes steps to ensure that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort when you have the Priapus Shot done. This includes applying a topical numbing cream to the area shortly before you receive the injections. You’ll also have a nerve block done before the procedure, providing even greater protection from feeling any pain. You might feel a slight burning sensation and some fullness, but this should only last up to 30 seconds.
It varies from patient to patient based on different factors. In general, the results of the Priapus Shot should last for about one year. You’ll start to experience the effects on soft tissue around three weeks after treatment, and you should continue experiencing improvement in erectile dysfunction over the next few months.
