Priapus Shot (P-Shot) Q & A

What is the P-Shot?

The P-Shot, or Priapus Shot, is a therapy that treats erectile dysfunction and improves sexual performance. Utilizing platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood, P-Shot injections enhance girth, restore elasticity and contractibility, improve blood circulation, and heighten sensation in the penis.

Named for Priapus, the Greek god of fertility, the P-Shot utilizes the same PRP therapy that treats sports injuries and makes cosmetic improvements, like restoring skin tone and texture and reducing wrinkles.

How does the P-Shot work?

Rich in healing and growth factors, orthopedists have used PRP for years to successfully treat injuries to tendons, muscles, and cartilage.

In the penis, the substance works by stimulating a rapid regenerative response in the organ’s vascular network and dermal tissues. The result is improved blood flow, sensation, and sexual performance.

What happens during a P-Shot session?

When you come to the Anti-Aging Institute for your session, Dr. Bacha draws a small amount of blood from your arm and processes it in a special centrifuge that separates the PRP. Next, he extracts the PRP and places it back in the centrifuge for further concentration. Finally, the PRP is activated with calcium chloride, an agent that stimulates the platelets and prepares them for tissue repair.

Before Dr. Bacha injects the P-Shots, he treats your penis with a numbing lidocaine cream. Because Dr. Fadi uses a very small needle, there is little pain or discomfort. Typically, he administers five injections during your 45-minute session.

Although some patients experience mild bruising, you can return to your normal daily activities, including sex.

What are the benefits of the P-Shot?

Most patients report increased penis girth, improved blood flow and sensation, and enhanced sexual performance. Additionally, the P-Shot can effectively treat Peyronie’s disease, a condition where internal scar tissue causes painful curved erections.

Is the P-Shot safe?

Because the PRP comes from your own blood, there’s no risk of an adverse or allergic reaction.

How long do the effects of the P-Shot last?

Most men enjoy the benefits of the P-Shot for a year or longer. Typically, patients return for annual injections.

Erectile dysfunction can impact every aspect of your life. Using the P-Shot, Dr. Bacha can help you restore function and enjoy optimal sexual performance. Call or book an appointment with the Anti-Aging Institute online today to learn how the P-Shot can help you.
