The P-Shot for Penile Enhancement
Sexual dysfunction and general dissatisfaction with their sexual performance is not uncommon among men. These issues can be caused by a medical condition, psychological barriers, or the source may even be unknown. Fortunately, men throughout Huntersville, North Carolina have the benefit of seeking several sexual dysfunction treatment options from Dr. Ashley Tapscott, including the Priapus Shot, or P-Shot.
About the P-Shot & PRP
Named for the Greek god of fertility, Priapus, this shot was developed by the same physician who created the O-Shot, and is designed to enhance a man’s erection through the injection of platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment that uses the patient’s own blood platelets to activate growth factors that rejuvenate sexual function in both men and women.
The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. PRP involves the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors in order to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. The benefits of PRP were initially used in wound healing, dentistry, and the treatment of sports injuries, but have now evolved to address aesthetic concerns and physiological dysfunction. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.
How PRP Is Made
To produce the platelet rich plasma used in a P-shot injection, Dr. Tapscott will draw a small amount of blood from the patient during a standard visit to our Huntersville office. This blood is then spun through a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma out from all other components within the blood. The result is a highly-concentrated dose of regenerative properties that can then be injected anywhere across the body.
What to Expect During Treatment in Huntersville, NC
Once the P-shot is ready, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the patient’s penis in order to avoid any kind of discomfort the shot may cause. Dr. Tapscott then takes just a few minutes to inject the platelet rich plasma into targeted areas around the penis. The entire process lasts for approximately 60 minutes in total, and patients may return home shortly afterward.
Effects from the P-shot should develop quite quickly after the patient receives their injection. With the P-shot, men can expect to notice:
- A larger penis
- Harder erections
- Enhanced sensation and pleasure
- A straighter penis
- Improved blood circulation through the penis
- More dramatic results from medication therapies if used (Viagra, Cialis, etc.)
Another great benefit to receiving the P-shot is that patients can resume regular sexual activities within the same day. It is of course advised that men wait at least a few hours before engaging in sexual activity, though they should not expect any difficulties in doing so if desired.
Are There Any Side Effects to Worry About?
Because the P-shot is created using the patient’s own blood platelets and plasma, there has never yet been an allergic reaction to the P-shot. If the individual does experience side effects, they are likely to be very minimal and limited to light bruising, bleeding, swelling, and infection.
The best way to avoid any potential complications from the P-shot is to ensure that an experienced, board-certified physician is performing the procedure. Dr. Tapscott has treated multiple patients using this particular method, and is also an excellent resource to explore additional options to treat a man’s issues of erectile dysfunction or more generalized sexual health concerns.
