What is PRP therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a concentrated serum extracted from your own blood. PRP contains blood platelets and other growth factors that promote cellular healing and cell regeneration. The experts at Better Life Medical use PRP therapy to address erectile dysfunction and improve sexual performance.

How does PRP therapy work?

The isolated growth factors in PRP are naturally designed to enhance circulation, stimulate new tissue growth, heal damaged cells, and aid in nerve regeneration.  When PRP from your body is injected into your penis, it performs these functions at an even higher rate, resulting in the following benefits:

  • Stronger, longer-lasting erections
  • Improved performance
  • Enhanced sensation
  • Increased penis size

PRP therapy may also relieve prostate discomfort and improve urinary incontinence.

Other treatments using PRP

  • Joint injections(knees and shoulders most common)
  • Neuropathy
  • Aesthetic enhancements

Is PRP therapy right for me?

A variety of factors can contribute to erectile dysfunction. PRP therapy may be right for you if your sexual performance has been affected by the following concerns:

  • Surgery
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High Cholesterol
  • Medication side effects
  • Nerve damage
  • Tobacco and alcohol consumption

If your erectile dysfunction is related to age or low testosterone, your Better Life Medical specialist may recommend PRP therapy in combination with additional treatments for optimal benefits.

What should I expect during my PRP treatment?

The first step in PRP therapy is a consultation with an expert provider at Better Life Medical, during which your provider reviews your symptoms and medical history and performs a physical exam.

Once your provider determines that you’re a candidate for PRP therapy, they begin by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm and processing it in a centrifuge to separate the growth factors from other blood components.

Next, your provider administers a local anesthetic to the target injection site. When this has taken effect, your provider carefully injects the PRP serum into your penis using a very fine needle.

When the procedure is complete, you can return to normal activities right away. The growth factors begin their work immediately, but it can take up to three months for you to experience full results.

To enhance your intimate relationships and end the frustration of erectile dysfunction, schedule a consultation with a medical expert at Better Life Medical. Call the office today to make an appointment or book online.
