A sample of around 30 ml of blood is taken from your arm and then put into a centrifuge to separate the plasma from other blood cells, concentrating the platelets. The PRP is then injected into the penis causing the formation of new blood vessels resulting in improved blood flow and a firmer erection.
The entire treatment takes around 30 minutes.
Any increase in penis size will be temporary and size will decrease over the next few days as it is absorbed by the body.
Post-procedure patients are recommended to use a vacuum pump to continue stimulating erectile tissue.
ED medication such as Viagra can be used in conjunction with the treatment.
A booster shot after 8 weeks may be required and yearly top-ups are required.
There is no downtime. You can have sex the same day as your treatment.
The risks associated with this procedure are minimal.
There is no surgery required (only topical anaesthetic is used), and as the procedure uses your own blood there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
Some people may experience some mild discomfort and there may be a feeling of numbness but this is temporary and generally disappears within an hour or so after treatment.
There is a small risk of infection as exists whenever the skin is broken with a needle.
Do not touch the injection site for a few hours after the treatment or you risk spreading bacteria to the area.
You cannot have this treatment if you have:
- a urinary tract infection
- inflammation of the penis
- an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection)
- low platelet count
- fibrinogen deficiency
- a blood infection
- using warfarin, dabigatran, heparin
- very low blood pressure.
This treatment may be less effective for smokers, as smoking constricts blood vessels and decreases the body’s ability to heal.
