Platelets are crucial for regeneration as they trigger the body’s natural healing response. Initially, they assist in clot formation and then transition to an activated state where they release growth factors, including platelet-derived growth factors. This process plays a pivotal role in stimulating cell growth, tissue repair, and the formation of new blood vessels.
PRP Therapy involves collecting a small amount of the patient’s blood, separating the platelets from the other components through a centrifuge, extracting the platelet-poor plasma, and obtaining a quality sample of PRP ready to inject. This condensed powerhouse of PRP is deemed safe by the FDA, as it is sterile and has minimal reported complications.
While PRP has multiple medical applications, when used in the Priapus Shot, it has been proven effective in the field of urology for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease. Its unsurpassed medical enhancement lets it live up to its namesake, Priapus, the Greek mythology’s fertility god and protector of male genitalia.
