Giving the "Little Blue Pill" the Boot
While erectile dysfunction (ED) is not something most people want to talk about, it is often a real issue for men over 40 and affects our overall sense of health and well-being. According to the Cleveland Clinic, 40% of men at 40 experience ED, increasing to 70% by age 70. There are many causes of this aggravating problem, ranging from medical conditions to being overweight to alcohol, drug, or tobacco use. Whatever the cause, the consequences can be frustrating and lead to stress, low self-esteem, and relationship problems.
In recent years, medicine has made great advances in treating impotence. While medications such as Viagara®, Cialis®, Levitra® and others have been effective in helping treat ED, they can be inconvenient and costly, and don't do anything to fix the problem long-term. At Snake River Aesthetics & MediSpa, thanks to groundbreaking application of research by Dr. Charles Runels, we provide a better answer: The P-shot (Priapus Shot®).
Stay with us. We know "P" and "shot" may sound a little...uhhhh...intimidating when used in the same sentence, not to mention the same word. But here's some info to help put you at ease.
The Priapus Shot® is a procedure that involves treating the penis by injecting blood-derived growth factors extracted from the man’s own blood (PRP). It is used to treat impotence (varying degrees), lichen sclerosus, and Peyronie’s disease. The name “Priapus Shot®” is registered with the US Patent & Trademark office as a “service mark” to protect patients by indicating a specific protocol* is used in treatment. The P-shot is very safe. In fact, there are over 8000 papers published on Pub Med about the science of PRP. There has not been one serious side effect reported when FDA approved equipment was used to prepare the PRP. At
Snake River Aesthetics and MediSpa, we maintain certification in the Priapus Shot® procedure,
including using FDA approved equipment.
PRP=the magic: Platelets secrete substances called growth factors that control cell division, stimulate tissue regeneration, and promote healing. Platelet rich plasma or PRP, which contains a high number of platelets, is used for Priapus Shot® due to its ability to stimulate tissue regeneration and increase blood flow.
The Priapus Shot® itself takes 2 minutes or less. With time for discussion, numbing, a blood draw, and blood processing, you can change your life on your lunch hour. From beginning to end, your privacy and comfort is our priority. After all of your questions are answered, we take a blood sample from your arm and begin processing the magic. While the PRP is being prepared, a topical numbing cream is applied to the penis. Once the PRP is ready, the injections are quick and pretty painless.That's it! Patients return to work or play immediately after; including in the bedroom.
Expected results from the Priapus Shot® include firmer, longer lasting erection, increase in penis size, and longer-lasting, more intense orgasm. If you've been taking the little blue pill (or one like it), most men can decrease dosage or eliminate the pill completely. The best part (as if it could get better!), is that this is your own body's healing factors, so it's extremely safe.
Most men begin noticing a difference within a few weeks, with maximum results happening at about 3 months. Things that can help the injection reach its full potential include: stopping smoking, CoQ10 & vitamin E supplements, aerobic exercise, and for some, a small dosage of tadalafil (Cialis®).
The P-shot® isn't for everyone. There are those who may need hormonal treatment, family counseling, or vascular surgery, as well as those who may have health concerns or who may be taking drugs that interfere with sexual function. Some patients are not treated with the P-shot because another treatment or no treatment is more appropriate. That's why it's important to discuss your complete health history with our providers before receiving the P-shot.
Here's what Mr. L had to say after his recent P-shot: "Thank you so much for your thoughtful TLC! I am looking forward to the results!!"
