What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile Dysfunction occurs when a man can’t get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Erectile Dysfunction can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. It can cause stress, relationship strain, and low self-confidence. The main symptom is a man’s inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.

What is involved in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction?

Patients suffering from Erectile Dysfunction should first be evaluated for any underlying physical and psychological conditions. If treatment of the underlying conditions doesn’t help, medications and assistive devices, such as pumps, can be prescribed, as well as adjuvant therapies such as the Priapus shot, also known as the P-Shot, Acoustic Soundwave Therapy, and Hormone Replacement Therapy.

HRT

Hormone Replacement Therapy - Testosterone & HGH

Testosterone levels gradually decline with age in both men and women. Testosterone is an essential hormone that affects many important physiological and psychological functions. Testosterone deficiency leads to declining health conditions that can reduce the quality of life. Men as young as 30 years old often begin to see the effects of low testosterone levels on their bodies and lifestyles. This process is known as Andropause which may have unwanted effects on sexual health resulting in low libido, ED amongst other symptoms.

Unlike menopause, the timing of Andropause is less predictable. Some men will notice a sudden, startling alteration that will have an influence on their ability to lose weight or gain muscle. Bone density, libido, and physical performance are all factors that can be influenced.

Andropause usually begins at the age of 30, after which the body’s testosterone manufacturing capacity diminishes to about one to two percent every year. In most men’s 40s and 50s, noticeable side effects of this phase become apparent.

What is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Hormone replacement therapies, such as bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), can help men of any age refill their testosterone levels and feel younger. We closely monitor your hormone levels, balance and adjust testosterone dosage as your body adjusts to make sure you avoid any potential side effects and get the maximum results possible. Hormone balancing can alleviate many symptoms, including depression, decreased sexual desire, anxiety, insomnia, and hot flashes. These symptoms might very well be due to a lack of hormones or a hormone imbalance.

Testosterone therapy by pellet implant is an approach that restores the right balance of hormones to reverse this trend. It is safe, reliable, and has been shown to improve health and quality of life.During any hormone treatment, you will watch your body start to improve and change. Testosterone therapy will return your body to the way it worked when you were younger and possessed more strength and vitality. You can expect the following benefits:

P-Shot

Platelet-rich Fibrin Injection (PRF)

We are proud to offer Platelet-Rich Fibrin Injection Therapy to aid in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Some refer to this treatment as “The P-Shot” or the Priapus Shot. In this treatment, blood is drawn from your arm, and within the next few minutes we harvest your own Platelet rich fibrin (PRF), which is the portion of blood that contains the growth factors that allow us to grow and heal ourselves.​ These factors promote the growth of new blood vessels and new nerves. Patients report great results, such as improved erection, performance and even increasing penis size.

We utilize PRF while other places may use PRP (platelet rich plasma). Unlike PRP, PRF does not require any additives and offers a higher degree of certain factors.

What is the P-Shot?

The P-Shot — officially known as the Priapus Shot — is a regenerative injection designed to combat Erectile Dysfunction. The shot utilizes platelet-rich fibrin (PRF). PRF is taken from your own blood. Prior to the treatment, one vial of blood is drawn. Next, the blood is placed inside a centrifuge designed to separate PRF from other blood components. After spinning, the PRF is harvested from the top of the vial into a syringe.

What is the P-Shot used for?

The P-Shot is used to stimulate collagen and release growth factors, which helps promote:

These factors promote the growth of new blood vessels and new nerves. Patients report great results, such as improved erection, performance, and even increasing penis size.

How long does the P-Shot procedure take?

It is quick and generally takes about 30 mins to complete, including the numbing process.

What are the side effects of the P-Shot?

The P-Shot is derived from your own blood, which means there are no synthetic ingredients in the injection. This also means the risk of allergic reaction or rejection is incredibly low. However, you may experience mild redness, swelling, and/or numbness for the first few days to one week.

Is there preparation for this treatment?

Do not take any NSAIDS medications (ibuprofen, aspirin 325mg only (the 81mg is fine), Aleve, or Excedrin for 1-2 weeks before the procedure. Since the use of NSAIDS decreases the ability of the PRP to initiate the regenerative response, we recommend abstaining from these medications at least 2 weeks after the procedure as well. Worst-case scenario, you will have a non-optimal response and may need to repeat the procedure much more frequently. Trimming or shaving will create easier visibility for the doctor and a better experience for you during the procedure. Failure to properly prepare and care for your procedure will result in a non-optimal response and a need to repeat the procedure much more frequently.

What is the recovery time
for the P-Shot?

There is no recovery period or major restrictions, and all patients may resume their usual activities soon after on the same day.

Will the treatment hurt?

Although every patient’s experience is different, most experience only minor discomfort.

How long before results are seen after the P-Shot?

Expect to wait about 2 – 6 weeks for the full results of the P-Shot to become noticeable. You might experience a slight improvement in your sexual performance and your ability to attain an erection after a few days. But the full results won’t be ready until a few weeks after that point.

How long do results last after the P-Shot?

The P-Shot is a treatment that provides noticeable results within one to six weeks with results that can last for up to two years.

Are additional treatments needed after P-Shot?

Acoustic Soundwave Therapy (ASWT)

Experts at M Health and Beauty offer low-intensity Acoustic Soundwave Therapy (ASWT), which is a non-invasive treatment to help treat and manage Erectile Dysfunction symptoms.

What is ASWT?

Acoustic Soundwave Therapy falls under the field of regenerative medicine, which deals with the process of replacing, engineering, or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. It is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates tissue repair and cellular regeneration. ASWT results in the recruitment of platelets and the subsequent release of growth factors & proteins, which in turn activate stem cells and stimulate cellular repair and regeneration wherever they are applied in the body. In addition, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels occur and further aid in tissue repair.

What is ASWT used for?

Acoustic Soundwave Therapy has been used to improve wound healing. Using targeted high-energy sound waves can speed up tissue repair and cell growth. Erections rely on healthy blood flow to the penile tissue. Acoustic Soundwave Therapy is viewed favorably as a way of repairing and strengthening blood vessels in the penis by improving blood flow. Acoustic Soundwave Therapy is administered with a wand-like device placed near different areas of the penis. A healthcare provider moves the device along parts of the area for about 15 minutes while it emits gentle pulses. No anesthesia is needed. The pulses trigger improved blood flow and tissue remodeling in the penis and vagina. Both of these changes can lead to erections sufficient for sex.

What can I expect during the treatment of Acoustic Soundwave Therapy?

The Acoustic Soundwave machine has a small, wand-like attachment that emits small, low-intensity pulses. When administering the treatment, your provider will hold this wand to different parts of the penis. The intensity level is extremely low but effective. You might feel slight tingling or discomfort, but it’s not a painful process. Depending on the severity of your ED, you may have to return for multiple sessions of Acoustic Soundwave Therapy treatment.

How long does Acoustic Soundwave Therapy take?

Acoustic Soundwave Therapy is an in-office procedure that usually takes under 30 minutes.
