Have you been dealing with the symptoms of erectile dysfunction? At Premiere Aesthetics of Fort Myers, FL, we understand how important sexual health is when it comes to our patient’s physical and mental well-being. While many people experience changes to their sexual health over time, we have the tools to help you fight back against these changes and improve a wide range of symptoms.
How Can You Treat Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is an extremely common issue that isn’t talked about as often as it should be. Sexual wellness is important, which is why we are proud to help our patients achieve better sexual health. Our sexual wellness shot uses the platelets in your own blood to stimulate better circulation and erections, all without surgery.
The first step of treatment will be creating platelet-rich plasma from a small sample of your blood. Blood will be drawn from your arm and processed in our centrifuge machine; this process creates a golden layer of platelet-rich plasma which is full of nutrients and growth factors. This concentrated PRP can then be carefully administered to the penis through one or more small injections.
Since we will be making the PRP for you during your appointment, the entire process usually takes between a half hour to an hour. This is much less of a time sacrifice than surgery and makes the appointments easy to schedule in this busy modern world.
PRP doesn’t cover up symptoms like a painkiller, so any improvement you notice is a sign that the treatment is working. Over time, as the PRP continues to repair the area, you may notice the initial benefits improving.
Some factors that can contribute to the longevity of your results may include your overall health, age, and activity levels. Some patients may benefit from regular treatments, while others are happy after just one. This depends on your individual needs, and we would be happy to talk through your goals and expectations with you.
What Is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma treatments have been around for decades and have had plenty of time to prove their effectiveness and safety. PRP was discovered in the 70s, and it was called platelet-rich plasma due to the fact that this processed material has a higher level of growth factors and helpful platelets than unprocessed blood. Soon after, it was discovered that PRP had the ability to stimulate healing and decrease inflammation.
PRP got its start as a way to help athletes recover faster from injuries. Even today, it can help speed up recovery after surgery or even help patients manage the symptoms of osteoarthritis. All of the benefits that make it helpful for injuries also make it helpful for cosmetic purposes, which is why even PRP facials are growing in popularity.
Patients who are leery of most injectable treatments are often comforted with the knowledge that PRP is considered extremely safe and easy for the body to accept, since the material comes from your own blood. It’s essentially a way to harness the healing powers of your body, then encourage the body to heal itself.
Of course, we are always available to answer any questions or concerns you have throughout any step of the treatment process. We know how important it is for patients to feel confident about their treatments, and we are ready to empower you with information and help you make a decision that you feel comfortable with.
What Are the Benefits?
In addition to repairing damaged tissue and improving functionality throughout the treated area, PRP is also known to increase circulation. Good circulation is a crucial aspect of keeping the penis healthy and able to function at its best, which is why it’s an important aspect of treating erectile dysfunction.
With improved circulation, this treatment is able to help our patients achieve better overall erections. It can help the erections be stronger, larger, and straighter all at once.
Sensitivity can help improve pleasure during intimacy. This is another benefit of improving circulation and encouraging tissue reparation.
This gentle injection should be safely and readily absorbed by the body. Since it’s often used as a cosmetic injection as well as for health concerns, it should not negatively affect the appearance of the treated area.
Improve Other Benefits
If you are currently taking other therapies, such as Cialis or Viagra, PRP can work alongside those treatments and help them be more effective. Since PRP is a natural injectable, it can be paired with a wide range of other therapies to give our patients powerful results.
Many patients want to avoid surgery whenever possible. While surgery for ED can be helpful, it can also be intimidating. This shot gives our patients a gentler alternative to surgery while offering many of the same benefits.
That said, surgery may be helpful for more severe cases, and we would be happy to let you know whether we believe surgery or a wellness shot has the best chance of giving you the results you’re looking for.
Is This Treatment Right for Me?
A Flexible Option
If you are looking to improve your sexual confidence and performance without surgery, this could be a great fit for you. Many patients find the idea of a minimally-invasive, natural, and non-surgical treatment very appealing since you don’t have to worry about incisions or introduce foreign material to the body.
Improve Your Odds
If you want to improve your chance of being a good candidate for treatment, you may want to consider quitting smoking. Pollutants present in cigarettes may counteract the positive effects of PRP since these pollutants are able to stop healthy stem cell growth.
PRP works well with other treatments, but if you’re taking something and are concerned about how PRP may interact with it, feel free to ask us about it. A consultation is our best way of helping you decide whether this sexual wellness shot is the right fit for you.
Signs of ED
If you think you may have erectile dysfunction, you may already be familiar with the common symptoms. That said, some people mistakenly believe that ED means you can’t ever get an erection. While this can be true in severe cases, people with ED may be able to get an erection, but it may not last long enough for sex. The erection may also be difficult to achieve, or the person may not be able to achieve it consistently.
What Other Treatments Can I Get?
There is a common misconception that only women are interested in cosmetic treatments. We know that isn’t the case; looking and feeling your best is something that can benefit everyone. We offer a range of treatments for patients of any gender.
More and more men are opting to seek out cosmetic treatments to help take care of their bodies and boost their confidence. These treatments can also help preserve a youthful and energetic appearance, which can help our patients feel like their appearance better matches their personalities.
Botox is used for dynamic lines, which are caused by repetitive muscle movement throughout the face. Dynamic lines become permanent over time, and by carefully relaxing localized areas of the face, Botox can dramatically decrease the appearance of these wrinkles. As the muscles under the treated skin are allowed to relax, the skin smoothes over. It’s an especially popular option to manage forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the brows.
While Botox works by relaxing targeted muscles, dermal fillers can fill in wrinkles or certain areas of the face to restore a more youthful appearance. They can also be used to help “sculpt” the face and create a sharper jawline or balance the chin.
We don’t just treat the face here: we’re happy to help you address aesthetic concerns in other areas of the body as well. Gyms can be very helpful when it comes to molding the body, but sometimes it can be difficult to shape the abdomen, arms, or calves. Emsculpt offers a helping hand so you can achieve the body shape you’ve been hoping for; with or without the gym!
PRF Hair Restoration
Most men dread the day when they realize their hairline is receding, or that the hair at the back of their heads is starting to thin out. PRF hair restoration can help you regrow a full head of hair without the use of invasive surgery.
