Most men will tell you that their penis is the most important organ in his body. Of course, while this is not exactly true for everyday physiologic survival, proper and reliable function of the penis plays a large role in intimate relationships. Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection and/or concerns about penile size, shape and curvature, with or without pain, can affect one’s self-esteem and create significant stress between partners.
Our bodies have a remarkable capacity to heal themselves. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. PRP involves concentrated platelets, rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. The benefits of PRP were initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but now have evolved to address aesthetic concerns and sexual dysfunction (erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease for men). PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular repair AND rejuvenation throughout the body.
What Is PRP?
PRP is in the category of regenerative autologous treatments, which means it comes from your own blood and can stimulate cellular regeneration and tissue repair. Platelets are one of the cells in our blood and when activated, they can release growth factors and other proteins.
