What is Priapus Shot?
The Priapus Shot uses PRP therapy which was previously used in recovery from muscle and joint injuries and treating skin and hair conditions and chronic health conditions. PRP therapy involves injecting a higher concentration of platelets from your patient’s blood into his body. Platelets are activated in response to injuries and are responsible for normal wound healing. They do more than simple and blood clotting, they stimulate collagen production which is a structural protein that is important for cellular regeneration.
While the PRP technique has been used for healing athletic injuries faster for decades, and in the last decade, it was also used for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Charles Runels use this technique to strengthen the penis and increase stamina, sensation, and pleasure. He patented this procedure and now only certified practitioners are legally authorized to administer this injection. The same Dr. Runels also used this technique for women, injecting their vaginas for better orgasms, and patented the procedure under the name O-Shot.
The P-Shot involves taking platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your blood and injecting it into your penis. This means your doctor takes your cells and tissues and injects them into your penile tissues to promote tissue growth and purportedly give you better erections.
Cost of Priapus Shot
With nearly 700 clinics across the globe offering P-Shot, there is no one price set for the procedure. Different websites of practitioners and marketers have shared different costs of Priapus shot ranging from 700$ to 2000$, without mentioning what is covered in this cost. Honestly, this seems a lot for a procedure that does not use a drug or implant but only the patient’s blood to treat.
The websites do not mention if the patient will be asked to buy the medicine and other equipment separately or will that be included in the cost. For example, penile vacuum pumps alone cost anywhere from 300$ to 500$ depending upon the brand in question. Websites do not mention if the cost of a vacuum pump is included in the P-Shot cost or you will be told to buy it separately.
Benefits of Priapus Shot
Marketers and doctors offering P-Shot claim that priapus shot can help with the following:
- Strengthen the penile muscles
- It can treat erectile dysfunction
- Improves penile skin with lichen sclerosus
- Heal scar tissues causing a tilted or bent penis
- Triggers cellular regeneration to increase the size both in length and girth of nearly one inch
- Improve sexual pleasure and performance
The Priapus shot is administered in the following steps:
- A technician will take blood from the client’s arm like it is normally withdrawn for blood tests or blood donation.
- The blood platelets will be separated from other blood components using an FDA-approved centrifugal machine.
- The penis will be prepared for the shots by cleaning it with an antiseptic solution and applying numbing cream.
- To mimic the series of activities that take place at the injury site, the catalyst will be added to the platelet-rich plasma to activate the platelet
- This activated platelet-rich plasma is injected into the client’s penis at five different spots.
- As the last step, the vacuum pump which is FDA approved device is used for 10 minutes. Later you will be advised to use the vacuum pump once or twice a day for up to three months.
There is not much aftercare involved with this procedure and zero downtime. You can immediately return to work and have sexual intercourse four hours after the shot. You will be instructed to regularly use the vacuum pump for the best results.
Practitioners claim that some patients can experience an immediate boost in their sexual strength, confidence, sensitivity, and pleasure. However, the results may reach their peak in 3 months. Results can last from 6 months to a year or even more. Repeating sessions after three months or more can help further build on the results.
Theory and Science behind Priapus Shot
Theoretically speaking this method use the body’s healing mechanisms, loaded up to new levels, to kick in the regeneration process, stimulating growth and strengthening the penis. If this works If the claims are true it is likely to restart the growth in size that ended with the end of puberty. Some websites marketing the procedure claim that the P-Shot injection can increase penis size by as much as 10 to 20% in length and girth.
However, there is no scientific evidence that PRP works any better than a placebo for any of its intended benefits. The limited reliable data that does show minimal improvements do not explore if the benefits can be retained for any period longer than three months. Another important factor to consider is that studies that do show the benefits of this procedure do not have a control group to rule out that the same results can be gained with using a penile vacuum pump alone.
The penile vacuum pump that is used during the procedure and is also sold to patients to be used continuously in the months to come to have scientific evidence to back its efficacy in improving sexual performance. Many penile vacuum pumps are FDA-approved devices to treat erectile dysfunction in men, that can be used with or without the constriction ring.
Priapus shot is an expensive procedure with big promises that are not backed by any scientific research. The benefits most patients experience could easily be from the penile vacuum pump used. Only people advocating the benefits of these relatively expensive procedures are marketers and doctors, and, with their financial gains attached to the procedure, their word is less than reliable.
