Erectile dysfunction is a common occurrence in men. It is estimated that nearly 50% of Canadian men over the age of 40 suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED).
ED is defined as the “persistent inability to attain and maintain an erection sufficient to permit satisfactory sexual performance”. “Sexual performance” includes sexual intercourse, solo practice (masturbation), partner activity, or other stimulatory methods.
ED can negatively affect a man’s self-esteem, confidence, relationships, and quality of life. At Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic, we offer Penile PRP shots to help treat ED.
What is Penile PRP?
Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) is your plasma extracted from your own blood, concentrated to capture your platelets. These platelets release growth factors which rejuvenate tissue, improve blood flow and promote healing.
There is a promising scientific data that shows that penile PRP injection can help in treating ED and enlarging the penis.
Who is the perfect candidate for Penile PRP?
Any man who has ED could benefit from Penile PRP. As long as he has normal platelets in his blood, that can be used for Penile PRP injection.
Penile PRP benefits
This is used to improve ED, create stronger erections and even enlarge the penis when erect. Studies had shown improved erectile function, penile length and girth as well as safety of Penile PRP injections.
How long does Penile PRP last
It is not clear how long this lasts but a 3 part treatment gets most men going with an annual top up if needed.
Before the treatment
For a week prior, don’t use ASA, anti-inflammatories, alcohol or any supplements that can block platelet function.
We provide local anaesthetic cream for you to apply to the penis. This is for 20 minutes, just before the procedure.
During the treatment
Your blood is drawn and spun down in a centrifuge. The plasma is extracted and injected into the penis.
The procedure takes only 5 minutes and pain is minimal due to the local anaesthetic and tiny needle used. A tourniquet holds the PRP in place for 5 minutes afterwards.
After the treatment
At home, you apply a penile pump for 15 minutes daily for the first month
How much Penile PRP costs?
We advise 3 treatments for $3750. Individual top-ups cost $1500 each.
Men with premature ejaculation or who have very few platelets (thrombocytopenia) may have limited benefit.
Testosterone helps men improve libido, which can also improve erectile function.
