Both men and women experience age-related changes because of their hormones. As a man’s testosterone levels decline, they can experience numerous uncomfortable symptoms, especially those associated with their libido and sexual function.
These changes can take on your self-confidence and your relationships. PRP for men is a cutting-edge therapy triggering the natural healing process in your body to enhance and rejuvenate your sexual function. But that isn’t all it can do.
What is PRP for men?
PRP for men is a regenerative therapy that uses growth factors in your blood to stimulate the healing process in your penis. During this treatment, a doctor draws a sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge machine. This process concentrates the healing components in your blood into platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
When injected into an area with dysfunction, PRP encourages the natural healing process to begin. The doctor injects PRP directly into your penis using a tiny needle to regenerate muscle tissue and blood vessels.
As healthy tissue returns to your penis, you can experience several benefits, including:
- enhanced sensitivity;
- improved blood flow to the area;
- increased sexual stamina;
- stronger and firmer erections;
- increased length and girth of your penis;
- fewer chances of premature ejaculation.
PRP can also correct sexual dysfunction after prostate cancer surgery. But, PRP does more than improving your sex life.
What is platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a buzzword in the beauty and aesthetics industries these days, with its restorative and regenerative properties being used to treat everything from hair loss and fine lines and wrinkles to muscle and joint injuries. PR P for men involves injecting PRP into the penis to improve function for patients with or without erectile dysfunction (ED).
PRP – for More than Sexual Function
Though erectile dysfunction is a common problem among men, it isn’t the only one. Fortunately, PRP injection has been shown to reduce other problems, like urinary incontinence and prostate discomfort.
In some cases, a doctor recommends PRP to be used in combination with other therapies, for instance, the shockwave system. These unique techniques help build tissue strength, firmness, and tone, making them a powerful asset in conjunction with PRP.
PRP for men is recommended by doctors to correct Peyronie’s disease, which is a condition causing scarring inside the penis that leads to painful and curved erections. This issue can cause significant pain and bends in the penis that can worsen over time.
When used to treat Peyronie’s disease, however, PRP provides a 75-80% success rate in straightening penile tissue, while also improving its circulation, health, and strength.
PRP for Men – a Minimally Invasive Solution
Your appointment with a doctor is relatively quick and simple. You may feel mild discomfort when he or she draws blood from your arm. Otherwise, the rest of the procedure is relatively comfortable.
Before injecting PRP into your penis, a doctor applies a local anesthetic at the injection site. This ensures your comfort while getting your PRP. Although some men notice immediate benefits after having PRP injection, it usually takes at least three to four weeks to see changes with maximum results around three months as healthy tissue returns to the area.
Who is the best candidate for PRP?
Anyone who wants to improve the blood circulation in their genital tissue can be a candidate for the treatment as it is absolutely safe and risk-free. Sometimes it may need to be combined with other treatments to be effective.
If people have prostate issues, psychological erectile dysfunction, or other things that are not related to the functional use, it may be that the underlying cause needs to be treated more than the actual tissue.
PRP Treatment Plans
At one point, PRP injections were performed as a solo procedure. Patients started with three treatments in a three-month span, before returning every two to three months for maintenance. Today, PRP procedure is rarely done alone. It is often combined with the exosome treatment for ED, shock wave therapy, or some anti-aging facial injections.
Combining PRP and shockwave therapy is a popular duo because a wand-like device utilizes vibratory stimulation to cause microtrauma to the penis that leads to increased blood flow and tissue viability in the area.
