Are you finding that, as you age, your sex life has taken a turn? You’re not alone, and here at Ver Halen Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery in Colleyville, TX, we’re thrilled to offer an effective and simple solution known as the P Shot. This popular treatment tackles erectile dysfunction at the source of the problem, restoring the libido, enhancing performance, and increasing pleasure and sensitivity. To learn everything about this groundbreaking treatment, and have all your questions answered, read on.
P Shot FAQs: How Long Do Results Last?
Amazingly, patients can enjoy the results of their P Shot for anywhere between 3 and 12 months, while some even see results for up to 18 months. This really blows those six-hour-lasting little blue pills out of the water! After this time, results will start to fade, but many patients simply book another session and repeat the entire experience.
What Exactly Is the P Shot?
The P Shot, short for the Priapus Shot, is a very simples injection that goes into the penis itself to stimulate blood flow and rejuvenate the penis so it can function better sexually. While the concept of such an injection may sound a little daunting, our trained staff here at Ver Halen Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery can perform it without you feeling any pain.
Developed after years of research and drawing inspiration from the Platelet-Rich Plasma technique, this treatment involves taking growth factors derived from the blood in other parts of your body and injecting them into your penis. This means the treatment is natural, utilizing your body’s own resources and repurposing them to give you refreshed, longer-lasting erections.
What Is Erectile Dysfunction, or ED?
As the name suggests, erectile dysfunction means the penis is struggling to achieve and/or maintain an erection. While almost every man has experienced this at some point, if it’s a regular occurrence, it might be time to seek professional help. ED isn’t just a matter of being dissatisfied sexually but can also lead to low self-esteem, distance between partners, anxiety, and a lack of confidence.
What’s not always discussed is just how common ED is. Statistics show that 18.4% of all men suffer from it, and more than 50% of men over the age of 50 will experience it either occasionally or frequently. That’s why the team at Ver Halen Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery are so determined to destigmatize the condition and provide useful solutions such as the P Shot.
What Causes ED?
There are a host of factors that can contribute to erectile dysfunction. That’s because arousal in men is the result of the whole body working together: the brain communicates with nerves in the penis, relaxing them and allowing blood to flow to the arteries and expand the area, causing an erection. So, surprisingly, the root of ED could be in the head just as much as it could be in the genitals. As mentioned above, aging is one of the most common issues. As you get older, your testosterone levels decrease, which can negatively affect one’s sex drive.
Underlying health concerns can cause nerve damage, which stops the penis from properly responding to the brain’s signals, and blood flow problems, which can block up the arteries and stop erections from occurring. These health issues might include obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, an enlarged prostate, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes. Heavy alcohol or tobacco consumption, as well as a poor diet, can cause ED. Alcohol slows the way the brain communicates with nerves in the body, while it’s well documented that tobacco restricts blood flow.
Psychological factors like stress, mental health issues, anxiety, depression, and a lack of sleep can play huge parts in the issue and shouldn’t be ignored. If ED is leading to issues with self-esteem, confidence, or lack of intimacy between a man and his partner, this can lead to further anxiety, and create a vicious cycle. Lifestyle can also be a factor.
Why Should I Get the P Shot Over Other Treatments?
From pills to surgery, there’s no shortage of remedies for ED. So how do you decide which one will work best for you? Let’s evaluate the rates of success, as well as the effectiveness of other treatments, and you can see for yourself why this treatment stands a head and shoulders above the rest.
You’re probably familiar with Viagra, AKA the little blue pill that gives the consumer a full and firm erection. Since 1998, it’s been popularized as the number one cure for ED. But with the results of this and similar medications usually only lasting between twenty minutes and a few hours, it’s a pretty short-term solution.
Plus, being dependent on regular medication, as well as the lack of spontaneity involved, can be unappealing to many men. To top it all off, the side effects, which include heartburn and headaches, can be real mood-killers for intimacy.
There are a few different surgeries available for those looking to treat ED. The most popular is generally putting a prosthetic device into the penis, which then results in an erection. If the problem lies with blocked arteries, then a surgical artery reconstruction might be in order. Veins in the penis can even be blocked off to redirect blood flow.
Many people choose to stay away from surgery because it’s expensive, invasive, and requires downtime afterward so the patient can recover. Those who worry about infections or reactions to anesthetic may wish to avoid it. If performed poorly, it can also lead to impotence or chronic pain. It’s for these reasons, in part, that this treatment was developed; a less invasive and more efficient method of treatment was in such high demand. Surgery can, however, be an excellent option for those with very severe ED caused by physical trauma.
What Happens During This Treatment?
This treatment is performed in-house at our Colleyville office. We’ll start by carefully drawing a bit of blood from your arm, much like a blood test. We then separate your blood using a device called a centrifuge and take out the plasma. This plasma is then injected into your penis, stimulating blood flow. This, in turn, causes tissue and blood vessels to regrow. Our patients report feeling minimal discomfort during the treatment.
The treatment only takes about thirty minutes all up – quick enough to fit into a lunch break! After treatment, you can leave immediately and carry on with your day. Patients love that there’s no downtime required, and they can head straight back to work or running errands. You don’t even need to wait to have intercourse.
How Soon Will I See Results?
Amazingly, results can develop within as little as three weeks after your treatment. While some patients report experiencing better erectile function sooner, it’s different for everyone. The improvements will steadily get better in the weeks following and reach their full effect at about the twelve-week mark.
And what exactly are these improvements? Our patients have been thrilled to achieve stronger, firmer erections, as well as experiencing increased sexual pleasure, and enhanced sexual performance. Many of our patients have found their penises have increased size in terms of both length and girth.
How Can I Maintain the Results of This Treatment?
We can only imagine you’ll want the results of your treatment to last as long as possible. While results are always dependent on the individual and the way their body works, there are some general steps one can take to look after themselves better following treatment. Below are just some of the guidelines we recommend to keep your hormones balanced and your blood flowing correctly.
No, we don’t mean you have to go compete in a triathlon. Just getting up and moving a little bit every day – whether that’s a walk around the neighborhood or a few laps in the local pool – gets the blood pumping all around the body, including to the tissues in the penis.
There are all kinds of ways to sneak cardio into your daily routine, and the results won’t just be improved blood pressure. Being in better shape with a more steady heart rate will only make your performance better!
A healthy, balanced diet full of fruits, vegetables, and grains will ensure your blood flow is healthy and regular and your hormones stay level. Foods like spinach, oatmeal, bananas, watermelon, and blackberries are particularly recommended. A good diet also decreases your chances of obesity and heart disease, which can of course be crippling for sexual functioning.
Paring Back on Unhealthy Habits
Now that you’ve read about the links between smoking and drinking and ED, you might be less inclined to keep them up. Need a little more reason to cut back? Smoking not only interferes with blood flow and the heart, but it ages the body faster.
Alcohol can affect the liver and make separating plasma from your blood nearly impossible. When we can’t do that, we won’t be able to perform the P Shot on you. If you engage in these habits frequently, we may recommend at least reducing how often you do so.
Is It Time for Me To Get This Treatment?
If you’re experiencing ED, it’s worth coming in for a consultation to talk more. We always recommend jumping on this issue as soon as possible, regardless of your age, so that you can get ahead of it. Younger bodies are usually more responsive to treatment as well, so it may be more effective if you come in sooner rather than later.
The beauty of this treatment is that follow-up treatments are available and can become a regular part of your lifestyle moving forward, much like getting a haircut.
If your ED is the result of psychological issues, you may be better off talking to a therapist or psychologist specializing in intimacy. During your consultation, we can have a more in-depth discussion about what might be at the root of your ED and make an informed decision about the best next steps.
