Experience Better Erections & Enhanced Sexual Performance at Any Age!
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is very common, affecting nearly 50% of men over the age of 40.
Left untreated, ED can have significant impact on a man’s relationship, self-esteem and overall well being.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Erectile Dysfunction is a new, regenerative medicine option now available in the Lake Norman and Statesville area at Carolinas Regenerative Medicine.
PRP involves using your own blood to stimulate cellular regeneration and tissue repair. Your blood is drawn, then run through a centrifuge to isolate the rich platelet cells. These platelets contain growth factors and other proteins to stimulate blood flow in the penis.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) has also been successful in orthopedics, plastic surgery, and sports medicine. There is promising scientific data that shows the potential ability of PRP in regeneration of erectile tissue.
How the PRP Shot Works
Platelet rich plasma injection is a simple and almost painless procedure which uses platelet rich plasma (PRP) drawn from your own blood to treat erectile dysfunction. Once the platelets have been separated, a topical numbing agent is applied to one small area on the penis and the platelets are injected into the area to help trigger blood flow.
Platelets posses a variety of growth factors and substances with reparative and healing properties. PRP therapy is an easy procedure that usually has no impact on your medications or health conditions.
Carolinas Regenerative Medicine is pleased to be able to administer this new treatment to men in the Lake Norman and Statesville area who could potentially benefit from this treatment.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Benefits can a man get from the PRP procedure?
- Stronger, firmer erections
- Easier to achieve and maintain erections
- Reduce or eliminate penile pain with an erection
- Better overall blood flow to the penis
How does the process work?
The growth factors & proteins released by the high concentration of platelets in PRP in turn activate stems cells and stimulate cellular repair and regeneration wherever they are applied in the body. In addition, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels occurs and further aids in tissue repair.
How is the PRP Acquired?
A small amount of blood is drawn in the office at the time of the procedure. Your blood is then spun in a specially designed centrifuge which separates the platelets and plasma from the rest of the blood. The platelets are isolated and then injected back into the body wherever their benefits are needed. Along with numbing cream on the skin, a block is performed on the penis with little to no pain.
How long does the procedure take to perform?
The PRP injection is performed in our office and should take about 60 minutes from start to finish. You can drive yourself home after the procedure.
How long before I can resume sexual activity?
