One of the most common concerns affecting men’s wellbeing and their intimate relationships is Erectile Dysfunction (ED). ED is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection suitable for sex. Erectile dysfunction can affect men as early as their 30’s, though most commonly occurs in men over the age of 40. Barring conditions such as stress or low self-esteem, erectile dysfunction occurs as a natural part of the aging process. That’s why medications like Viagra and Cialis were developed to help middle and older-aged men perform better and feel like the man they used to be in their younger years, which helps with overall wellness. However, though these medications are a saving grace in the bedroom for some, they come with a range of side effects and require daily dosing to realize benefits. That’s why more and more men are looking for better, more natural, and longer-lasting results, such as they can experience with the P-Shot. The procedure is performed by first numbing the target areas, then injecting the PRP into strategic locations along the patient’s penis with a tiny needle. To help maximize the injection effects, a penis pump is used immediately after injection to distribute the PRP throughout the penis. Patients are encouraged to use a pump regularly to optimize outcomes further.

history of P-Shot Treatments

History of the P-Shot

Dr. Charles Runnels invented the P-Shot (priapus shot) procedure, first available through his Age Management clinic in 2004. Dr. Runnels is also credited with the invention of the Vampire Facial procedure. His research and experiments on the rejuvenating and healing nature of platelet-rich plasma have paved the way for advances in treating sexual dysfunction for men (and women) through natural means.  The P-Shot procedure is not FDA approved. This is only because the shot uses the patient’s own blood, which is not regulated by the FDA. However, the platelet harvesting kit and other devices used in the procedure are FDA approved.  As more research is done, the prevalence of the P-Shot as a treatment will continue to grow. Researchers and providers are always looking to improve upon their process and results. It is very likely that, much like other treatments, the P-Shot will continue to evolve beyond its already impressive results.

P-Shot Benefits

Benefits of the P-Shot

The P-Shot has been noted to help reduce erectile dysfunction and possibly Peyronie’s disease while improving sensitivity. Due to the influx of growth factors and the rejuvenating effect of the procedure, there have been reports of an increase in the length and width of the penis. Patients with Peyronie’s disease have noticed an improvement in symptoms.  Additional results have included: 

  • Reduction of the bend of the penis
  • Break up of scar tissue within the penis
  • Reduction in penile pain with or without an erection
  • And more

Most patients see full results after 2-3 treatments over a period of approximately four months. The results last for about 18 months.  Additional benefits include:

  • Non-surgical
  • Drug-free
  • Increased girth
  • Increased length of the penis
  • Improved sexual stamina
  • Greater pleasure
  • Firmer erection
  • Improved blood flow and circulation
  • Improved intimacy and relationship
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Improved confidence

The ability to redefine the effects of aging on your sexual health is within your grasp!

Happy Consumer

I was skeptical about this treatment at first, but read many good things about it and I felt desperate to perform intimately with my wife. All I can say now is that I’m back to performing and we’re feeling young again. Glad I pushed through my doubt and gave the P-Shot a chance.

Getting Started with P-Shot

Finding an expert is as simple as visiting our online community. With AgeEnvy, valuable information detailing the P-Shot as well as qualified practitioners for this treatment is at your fingertips. Keep in mind that your health and safety comes first with any treatment. That’s why our mission is to give consumers control over their health by getting them connected with practitioners that are licensed, verified experts focused on the P-Shot.

Potential Side Effects of the P-Shot

The Priapus shot is all-natural and performed after numbing. As a result, there is minimal to no pain upon injection, and there is virtually no risk of rejection due to the use of the patient’s own growth factors and plasma. However, there are still potential P-Shot side effects to be aware of despite how rare they may be.  Some common potential side effects include:

  • Minimal bleeding
  • Minor bruising
  • Swelling
  • Infection (very rare)

The penis is a sensitive bundle of nerves, veins, channels, and other tissues. An incorrectly placed injection yields a greater risk for experiencing side effects and the possibility of not responding to treatment. Before getting the P-Shot, make sure to find a certified provider that uses only FDA approved kits and centrifuges. Failure to do so can result in complications beyond any expected side effects of the P-Shot.

How much does P-Shot cost?

The P-Shot is considered an elective procedure. As a result, insurance will not cover the cost of treatment. The final cost is dependent on the number of treatments needed, which will depend on your starting point and desired goals. However, the cost of each treatment ranges from a low of approximately $1,500 to a high of about $2,200. This cost includes the necessary penis pump to optimize treatment. The range in cost is dependent on the practitioner you choose for your treatment. Cost of living may influence the cost as well especially in high-cost areas.

How many P-Shot procedures will I need?

There is currently no set protocol for the number of treatments needed. The number of treatments will be dependent on your individual starting point and goals. That being said, the number of initial P-Shot treatments is usually between 1-3 treatments. The results are not permanent so most patients schedule follow-up treatments to maintain their results. Optimal response to treatment is dependent on the patient’s adherence to the maintenance and care protocol established by the practitioner at the time of treatment.

How long is the recovery time with P-Shot?

The P-Shot is minimally invasive and non-surgical. As a result, the treatment requires virtually no downtime for patients to resume normal daily activities. However, it is recommended to wait at least four hours after treatment before engaging in sexual activity. Some patients may see the need for recovery time in the event they suffer any side effects. Some of the side effects like bruising or minor bleeding may require a person to wait longer than the minimum four hours for sexual activity. The greatest chance to avoid P-Shot side effects lies in your choice of practitioner. The right P-Shot doctor will know how to correctly place the PRP injection ensuring successful treatment.

How quickly will I see results from P-Shot?

For some patients, results are noticed almost immediately. Most patients will see results after a few weeks. Maximum benefits are noticed and/or experienced after three full months have passed since treatment. The speed of results is dependent on your response to treatment and your individual starting point. The more concerns that need to be addressed, the more likely that it will take longer to notice significant results. If you find yourself concerned about the speed of your results, consult with your practitioner to determine if any adjustments to your treatment or post-treatment are needed.  

How long will my P-Shot results last?

There is no set minimum or maximum timeframe for the length of time results last. That being said, the average length of time ranges from a low of about eight months to a maximum of 18 months. Your starting point and adherence to post-treatment maintenance will contribute to the length of time you can expect results to last. Some patients may need more treatments to get to their optimal results. Since the results are not expected to last forever, most patients make following-up a treatment an annual endeavor to maintain optimal sexual function and performance. If you are concerned about the length of your results, consult with your practitioner to determine if you need treatment sooner than planned.

Are there other similar options to P-Shot?

There are other options designed to treat erectile dysfunction or Peyronie’s disease. The closest related treatment in terms of being natural and drug-free is the GAINSWave protocol, which uses soundwave therapy. The treatment is used to treat both conditions but is dependent on external treatment instead of the body’s own growth factors. Other options are either medications like Viagra or Cialis, which only addresses the ability to get an erection or various surgical treatments. While there is evidence to show they work, both options carry the risk of greater side effects both in number and in actual effect. The P-Shot is generally considered safer due to being natural and is growing in popularity for that reason.
