Platelet-Rich Plasma Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a solution created from a small volume of your own blood. The process is completed in the office with no need for advanced preparation.

Your blood contains a mix of solids and liquid. Among the solid components are platelets, the part of your blood responsible for clotting. Platelets also contain lots of special proteins called growth factors that aid in healing and cellular regeneration.

PRP is created by spinning your blood until the components separate, then returning the platelets to the now-cleared plasma. The solution is then ready to be reintroduced to the body via injection.

The injections are administered directly to your penis, but numbing mediation is used to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. The success of PRP therapy depends on the use of a negative pressure pump.

This device fits over your penis and delivers negative pressure to pull blood into your penis. This process ensures that the PRP is evenly distributed and can deliver results. Without this step it’s likely the injected PRP would simply enter your general circulation.

You’ll need to continue using the device at home on a daily basis to create an optimal environment for the PRP to create results. If you’re happy with the results but would like additional improvements, you can return for PRP therapy every 60-90 days.  

What are the benefits of PRP compared to other sexual health therapies?

One of the biggest benefits of PRP injections is the ability to treat erectile dysfunction in a way that’s natural. Many men want to avoid pharmaceutical intervention and surgery, but still hope to improve their sexual performance.

Because PRP is formulated from your own blood, there’s no risk of your body rejecting treatment. There are no side effects and virtually no risk of infection. If PRP is an effective treatment option for you, an added benefit is the ability to have ongoing treatments as needed without having to worry about a negative reaction.

How can PRP help with sexual health?

PRP is shown to stimulate cellular repair, boost cell regeneration, and prompt your body to produce new collagen. All of these effects can lead to improvements in erectile function.

Men who’ve undergone PRP therapy report increased sexual pleasure and satisfaction and decreased erectile dysfunction. There is even evidence to support an increase in the size and straightness of erections.
